Our Real Enemy

You're safe with me. Find these people. They are out there. Stop filling your heart space with that which "isn't" so there is room for that which "is" to enter. Know that you are deserving of this NOW. Release old belief systems telling you otherwise again and again.. Until what you want shows up. And it will.. as soon as you refuse to settle for less than you deserve. Empty, Adjust and Heal, Fill ❤tami:

“A child understands fear and the hurt and hate it brings.” – Nadine Gordimer

FEAR

So obvious when one really considers. After all, fear is the true opposite of love, not hate. Hate doesn’t happen unless fear is already there first, inside one’s mind.

Fear manifests in many forms: Fear of the unknown, fear of the different, fear of the future, fear of the past, fear of bullies, fear of being thought different from, fear of …. the list is endless and once fear exists, it is all too easy for an entire host of negative emotions to become fear’s companions and they do.

Recognize this:  A sense of feeling less than, or do you recognize perhaps these fellow companions of fear; separating yourself from some by going with the crowd to be accepted (even if you disagree with what the crowd is saying or doing) or prejudice, disdain, scorn, hate, becoming superior to overcome insecurity, being dismissive and probably the worse one of all – indifference. You know, that comfortable place where you dwell because it’s safe (or so you believe).

If you are alive there truly is no such thing as safe. There are however amazing opportunities to thrive in an unsafe world made so by the “fear factor”. Believing in yourself is one. Caring for others is another. There is a tangible strength in a community of caring & sharing, loving people. Power brokers use fear as a weapon, often used to separate people – one from the other – and they do it well. They always have … because it works. History records this fact for those who would see.

In our world of today Fear is alive and well and running rampant around the planet and power brokers are still utilizing this weapon skillfully and to an advantage.

Is there anything one can do to change this? This is a question we each must answer for ourselves. Will we be ruled and influenced by fear? Or step out of the fear induced society of today and become our own person, guided by the richness of love that can become disused and lay dormant in the hearts of mankind.

I say once again that in a community of caring, sharing and loving people, whether the community be your immediate neighborhood or one spanning a country or even our entire planet there is no fear that cannot be conquered where love is the ruling state of (well) being.

Your Written Words – A “Simple” Universal Truth!

jdurhamWhen we express ourselves through our written words, sometimes we add to the meaning of a reader’s understanding. But our blogging words aren’t necessarily the truth, or a fact. Just us expressing our perspective of our own understanding on the topic.

Therefore, when others read our words their interpretation may be different from what we meant to convey. As a result you may think to yourself (when you read the comments in your comment section)  … ” that’s not what I meant, or that’s not what I meant to say. Or “you don’t understand”.

Communication – that which connects all humans at a primeval level can and often does break down. This can occur with the spoken word as well.

In addition, all languages (around the world) structure their words according to ethnology (origin, history and characteristics of their race) and while there may be similarities, many aspects of the written word translate into different meanings, comprehensions and understandings.

So, while our purpose is to communicate with others (our thoughts, ideas, worries and concerns) depending on the readers focus, his/her personal life experiences to date, their own mindset from these experiences, and their understanding of the language, they may miss the intended meaning the writer was attempting to convey.

Sometimes communicating your thoughts and feelings in your blog, may be exceedingly difficult. When this occurs. Simplify your expressions. Go back to a few basic words. Some words are universal in their meaning and understanding. Words like Love and Hate. Good and Bad. Less and More. Sharing. Selfish. Indifference. War. Peace. Death. Life. Balance. Caring –

“One People! One Planet – One!”

It is ironic that the most profound thoughts are almost always expressed in the simplest manner. Then again perhaps proving the “truth” to this article.

Thanks for reading, have a great day.

Are you hiding from Life … Don’t!

hiding from life

Hiding

Life is waiting …

… patiently – just for you – right over there on the other side of all your doubts and insecurities.

Waiting for you to recognize your own self worth and come exploring.

That’s what life is about – after all!

Living that is.

It isn’t always easy and sometimes it’s incredibly hard; the good, the bad, all of it! I believe we decide, not only what we’re going to do or be in our lives but of greater importance – how we’re going to respond to what happens to and around us (on any given day) – how we react to that which comes our way. Our choices, always!
