There is a constant push/pull. We are unsettled because at our taught behaviors, we are told that the light must prevail. Like all things there is balance. In nature there is balance. In the universe there is balance. Those people who seem to have it together, still secretly lose their shit. Those who seem to be always losing it, still find moments of peace. Being balanced isn’t fighting the current, but instead letting the current take you. Flowing with it. The struggle I see in so many is a self perpetuating one. So many worry about the outside world and how they are perceived by it. We come on these social media spaces and try to be perfect. But we’re imperfect, and that’s what makes us beautiful.
Last night I saw 2 brothers. In my vision it was Sam and Dean Winchester. Some may watch the show supernatural and be familiar with these characters. In my vision it was played out like an episode of that show. The show does an excellent job of portraying the fight between the dark and the light. They use the stories of cane and able, god and Lucifer. They fight for power between sides. Last night though, I was shown how one side becomes another. How in these transitions they find understanding. This is because as in nature, we too are neither dark or light. We are both and we are neither. We are the same but uniquely different. While this message is shared, we fail to truly understand what that means. This is why we fight. This is why we get wars this is why we get oppression and rebellion. Neither side exists without the other.
This planet is at a critical mass. We over cultivate and let our fear drive our decisions. We see others as a threat. We make excuses for why we act selfish instead of admitting it’s fear of losing. This thought of “well this person used a fake twenty to buy some shit, so he must be a criminal mastermind “ is forcing someone to fear that they are losing something. So in an act of self preservation they all for help and unknowingly start an avalanche of fear. Fear is only an emotion and should always be tempered with understanding. When it’s not, it causes a ripple. That ripple carries with it an echo. That echo gets amplified and causes the ripple to gain velocity. We use fear as an excuse to do more violent things. It is constant. The only way to not make it worse is to let it go. Step aside and let it eventually slow down. What happens, happens. We can complain about the aftermath, but the events occurred because we gave into fear and lack of empathy.
We can not control anything but our choices. Our actions are just a reaction to those choices. Trying to control anything other than our choices causes a reaction that you already lost control of by thinking you could control what was never yours to manipulate.
If you want change, don’t try to change the outside. Instead, change from within. Accept that. Grow from that. Accept that you are beautifully imperfect, and you are not a color, flag, or belief. You are one. You are you. Growth comes from acceptance.
Seesaws are more fun when 2 sides work together
