For our own sake, do for You
We cannot save other people. No matter what we want to believe and no matter what we think and no matter what we are trying to talk ourselves into, we can only save or do anything at all for ourselves.
We silly humans don’t understand this, or maybe we do and we just cannot bother with thinking past the idea that we have to Do in order to Be. No, we don’t. In fact if we each paid attention to the things and the situations in our own singular lives we would find evidence of this one fact – when it is that we have started our trek to wholeness by walking with ourselves, all the pieces that would have been in place for others to have help from us sort of just happen. When we leave things alone that we know we should, and when we choose to stop obsessing about those things, and when we realize, after we have become so exhausted from the mental bruisings we have experienced which led to our own Spiritual ailment and in turn which led to our physically manifesting the things that we didn’t want to happen, life happens just to fall in to place.
We cannot do for others what they refuse to do for themselves, and we cannot expect that that which we want so badly for them will happen because the frank truth is that they may not see things the same way that we do, and when it is that we find that this is the truth that has not changed, we can allow ourselves to no longer wish for anyone else but ourselves the kind of healing that we can only bring to us, through us or perhaps through another person, and that healing is Divine because it is the Soulful type of healing and is the kind that, even though it hurts at the onset, it is the thing that brings us the Wisdom and the Strength that we all each so badly need, sometimes just to make it through the day.
Make it through the day
Make it through the day, guys, and try to do so without the idea that you have to do anything to make anyone else comfortable about anything at all. It is common and even arrogant of us human types to not so much want something better for others, namely those who we love, but more than that, we want to save everyone because somewhere within us there is this inclination toward our thinking and believing that we can save anyone but our own selves.
Make it through the day, guys, because if you don’t bother with looking at the things that dearly need to be seen you will find out that all along we have been moving quite nicely toward a goal, that we have been stopped a few times along the way but for not much more than to smell the roses.
Make it through your day, guys, without the feeling that you have to do anything more than simply Be You and to simply do what you must in order to make your self available and ready for the things that are headed toward each of our lives in a collective manner.
I Love You ALL!
