It amazes me how people can disconnect and forget that we are all humans. It frightens me to listen to the news sometimes when I hear how some people treat others, wounding and killing without seeming to care. We are all connected as energy, as souls, as humans. Our planet is the only one we’ve got. We all need oxygen to live and we all need food and water to survive.
We are in this together, here in the same boat, on the same planet, breathing the same air and drinking the same waters and yet there are those who forget. Yes, we are different. Each and every one of us is like the flower above ~ all flowers, but all seemingly different in how we look, think, act and perceive life. Our experiences are different. Our families, our work, our goals may be different. Our strife may be different. But the commonality of humankind is apparent.
So how do we make this planet better? By seeing the world through loving eyes, ears, hearts and souls. We are not just humans with souls, we are souls with bodies. We are born with a life energy that has an expiration date which we do not know so we must live each and every day to its fullest. When we shine our heartlights, we raise the energy and vibrations in this world. We make the world a better place and in turn, we make it better for ourselves.
Perhaps, ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’ is hard when you don’t love yourself or harder still, when the neighbor is a pain in the neck. I get it. Dealing with others can be challenging at times. But to forgive, to do our best and to observe with understanding makes the commandment easier.
So look around at the millions of flowers in our world. Bless each one in the garden of life. Know that each is doing its best to grow, to flourish, to blossom and to bring beauty to the world. As each one begins its withering journey, find compassion in your heart to make the journey as beautiful as you can for everyone around you is doing their best.
