The cards today spoke of recalibrating toward joy and having fun to allow the universe to work and reminding us of our connectedness. We are all one. I read a daily reminder/book of passages to keep my inspiration going and it told the story of a family separated by distance but always held together by their bond as family. What we need to remember is that we are all family, in every sense of the word. We are all connected; our joy is everyone’s joy and our pain is everyone’s pain. We need to work on lifting each other up and work on realizing that there is no room for the type of power play, competitions we have endured for millennia. We need to remember our connection to everything always.
We were brought here as a gift, to live in tandem with the natural course of things. There was a time when survival meant creating a hierarchy of sorts, but we are not meant to operate from that state forever. We are meant to evolve and develop and learn new means of coexisting. But we develop beliefs (more on that this week) that steer our course and we become rigid with the ability to pivot. The truth is this is all about staying connected with our intuition. We know when things don’t make sense and we know when they don’t fit. This is when we develop moral conundrums like, “I know this may hurt people but my beliefs tell me to do this,” and we wrestle with which direction to go.
I want to share this as a reminder that those moments are the signs that we need to question everything. Just because we have always done things a certain way doesn’t mean they need to continue that way. Just because we can doesn’t mean we should. We have an inner knowing that tells us what is right and what is wrong and guides us toward a greater peace. We need to recalibrate that as well. We need to recalibrate the sense of love we have for ourselves and others. Our stories and experiences may be different, but that doesn’t mean the heart of who we are as humans is any different. We all bleed the same.
So when I make my choices, I lean toward not only what feels good, but what feels right. Some days are harder than others to steer that way because it’s easy to fall into victim mode or even martyr mode upon doing the “right thing.” We have to trust that we are guided and that we will do the right thing, not just for ourselves, but for everyone. We all go different directions at times, but at the core, we are all connected. There is room for us to do what we need to do AND to do good. We don’t have to live in a world of “or,” we can create a world of “and.” That is the beauty of it all: we can always redirect the sails and get somewhere new.
