Love vs Hate
I woke up today and my heart felt so heavy. Heavy with disappointment and sadness for all of the hate that is running through the world. Then the heaviness began to evolve into anger. I found myself pissed off while driving home from dropping two of my Littles off at school. I don't understand why so many people hate each other. I happen to embrace a belief that we are all holding the Divne/God/Goddess within ourselves. How can you hate someone who's soul houses the Divine? How can so many people believe that we are all children of God, yet hate those children so much? How can people take the words of God & Jesus & all the other Ascended Masters from days past, and twist those words to justify hating?
It seems so easy to hate each other and so hard to Love and accept each other for the beautiful souls that we all are. I know that there are horrific, unjustifiable things being done all over the world to innocent people. I know that there is so much disrespect for Nature and the earth. I know that there are kids at my childs school who have joined a white supremacy group on Facebook. Eleven & Twelve year olds who believe that if your skin is not white or you are gay you are scum who don't deserve to be here. How can this be?
I'm not being naive. I know that hate has existed since the beginning of time. I myself, in this lifetime, have judged others because they were not like me. I know that children hate because their parents have taught them to. Why else would children stand outside the nations capitol with signs that read, "God hates gays." Children don't come into this world hating. They are taught it. I know that hate will never be completely destroyed and it probably shouldn't be, but how can people NOT see the harm it is doing to our future here on this planet. How can people look into the eyes of their neighbor and hate them for being the very person that God meant for them to be?
So my heart is heavy today. I'm still pissed off, but I refuse to let that anger turn me into one of the haters. I still have an over abundance of Love in my heart. I will not fight hate with hate. I will do what I can to touch the lives of the people near me enough to show them that hate is not the answer. Love will lead us to the Divine. Love will fill us up and keep us shining for many lifetimes. I don't want my Littles to be haters. I don't want them to even hate the haters. I want them to know that Love will conquer all. Their lives can be full and meaningful even if they are surrounded by infectious hate.
From this day forward, I vow to live on the side of Love. Yes, I said that out loud. I want to be held accountable. I want to be reminded that if ever I start to turn on the hate that I vowed to live in the Light. I am blessed with a beautiful, beautiful family, a home to be safe and warm in and outrageously fantabulous friends. My life is rich and full, and if I can brighten my family, friends and home, then I can brighten my world. We are all one. If I brighten my world you can brighten your world and so on and so on...... Love can conquer all.
I hope that you can join me. Join me, even if for just one day. Live in the Light. Smile at strangers. Tell the clerk at the gas station to have a beautiful day. If someone looks lost ask them if they need help. If your precious Little is crying ask them if they need some extra snuggles. Ask your partners in life if there is anything you could do today to make their day brighter. Make your world a brighter place.
Just my thoughts.
