Let Go of Positivity!
December 15, 2014
Be happy! Be positive! Hearing that can be annoying. There are a lot of depressed, unhappy, negative, and medicated people occupying America who find so called uplifting advise ‘useless’ in changing their lives but for a flashing moment. ‘Occupy Wall St.’ was a recent movement to counter ‘corporate greed’. So far doesn’t appear that all the hoopla has slowed down the cash flow of the upper 1% who possess most of the world’s money. Likewise, all the reminders of ‘be happy’ and ‘be positive’ aren’t seemingly making a major effect of the condition of society and it’s members.
Prayer? Is it making a difference, or any better of a difference than all the vocal pablum about being happy and positive? Don’t get me wrong, all three are tools (and the Wall st. demonstrations), but they seem to be sloppy painting or bandaids over the forever lingering problems. A different approach will be more effective, and one that isn’t as mainstream.
Time to try the old trick before crossing the street! Look both ways! Oh, and if it’s a ‘4 way street’, look both ways. You might look down for a glance too, and with drones coming or flying flotsam, maybe look up! Of course, you might even look inside yourself to see if that’s what you want to do! What is this? It’s called, watching, being alert, paying attention, being awake, etc. It’s beyond positive, negative or being happy – it’s being ‘AWARE’!
Being ‘aware’ is a key necessity in the ‘spiritual/conscious’ world, and from there be discerning. Animals seem to navigate by that. Humans walk around with chattering of everything imaginable especially in playing the ‘tapes of the past, infinitely causing behaviors that endlessly keep you chained to the ‘prisons of the past’ that create endless disfunction’s in your life. If you think, you are who you and others see – you’re lost in the soup!
Awareness is to be awake. With awareness comes intelligence beyond the intellect as well as the heart opening into the love that awaits. Coupled with common sense, qualities as empathy, compassion, sensitivity, etc., come out of the love that awareness ignites
BE AWARE! You can’t let people unnerve you. You can’t go your whole life trying to please everyone else.
It’s useless to go through life worried about everyone else is thinking about you. Whether it’s your hair, clothes, tattoos, what have you to say, or feel, believe and what you have, or don’t. You can’t let others judgement of you stop you from being the real you, or if you do, you’re no longer you, but someone everyone else wants you to be. Be aware, use common sense to be discerning and love will blossom in all it colors!
