Each morning is a new beginning, a chance taken in a new day. New breaths are taken. New plans are made, ideas are formed and new ways are tested.
Today is a beautiful new day full of possibilities and we all know that. What is our state of mind in this space? What are the possibilities being faced and accepted or rejected? Where will you go from here?
The last few days I've been mulling over divinity, the earth, what's next and what's been.
Divinity and gods or goddesses: We think we know them, we think we speak for them, we think we are separate from whatever myths we have created to keep us well controlled and fearful. Come now? Have we come so far that we actually believe this nonsense?
Do you realize that no other body can commune with sacredness but you, for you? Anyone who tells you of the whisperings of a deity is selling you something and more than not it's their soul, although that is not realized.
Where temples were erected out of worship, we were creating a macro body for our own micro, breathing example. Our temples, our thrones where the exalted, higher selves sit.
We live a life where god and goddess are one and they reside within us. Too much for this morning? It's ok, you've come to expect this here in this space.
You carry the codes of divinity within you, we all do. On the other hand, we carry the codes of all that malevolent as well. We choose which parts we play. No matter the tribe, no matter the land mass and location, we all have the stories that show the difference of 2 when in reality it's always been the struggle within one.
We've become so preoccupied with pointing fingers, with accusations that we forget who we are and why we are here. Searching outside of ourselves, we're told not to trust that voice within, the invisible hands that guide us to our divinity.
Look at those who are adversarial towards you and you will see a space where you once were. A different version of ourselves before we grew ourselves out from the constructs and confinement of our own cells. Every accusation they throw is a version of themselves they refuse to see, a spot in their hearts they refuse to shine lights upon and also an old version of yourself in some new manifestation to show yourself how far you've come and to see if you will regress. We test ourselves.
Suddenly I am able to forgive the things I once felt so unforgivable. Suddenly I have a sense of compassion, the likes of which I have never felt. Where pity once sat heavy in my chest for such creatures, I have more love and understanding now.
It's so much easier to forgive others when you see yourself in them. When you stop hating yourself because of things so out of your control that you stunt your own growth. When you begin to nurture yourself and love yourself, worshipping at the feet of your own divinity, your own representation of a benevolent force. You realize this is in us all and where we all are in terms of how far along these paths we may or may not be, doesn't concern us outside of ourselves. Our own is what we need looking at.
It was sitting in the understanding of these ideas and speaking them out loud, that I am here where I am in these thoughts. Claiming no authority over what divinity is telling me or anyone else.
I am a creative spark, a representation of that which wants to be expressed in this life. You are as well. If we actually began to behave in such a fashion, what a place this world would be.
