It's tough business oscillating between these different emotions, not truly understanding what narrative to believe, what information to take seriously, what story to interact with; it's quite exhausting, honestly. That's why it's so important to create space for yourself.
When I feel myself getting caught up in the whirlwind of emotion, it usually leaves me feeling fearful, worried and unsure about what the future is going to look like. This is especially true when I start feeding myself with different information and start diving into the rabbit hole to try and understand what's really going on. But the truth is, it doesn't really matter.
All I can do is focus on the moment I am in, right now. Because that's the only thing that really exists.
Realize your ability to control your story.
It does no good to project what a potential future could look like, because honestly, there is an infinite number of potential futures. And if I know anything about how the universe works, the only thing projecting a potential fearful future is going to do is reinforce the probability that it comes to fruition.
That's why it's important to focus on the future that we want to create, for ourselves, for our families, for our communities. One filled with love, compassion and joy.
Come back to love.
We have two options at any given moment.
We can either choose love or we can choose fear. And although it's challenging at times, I'm always going to try and bring myself back to love. This is not easy. It’s challenging, and it takes courage. And when I walk around town I can easily recognize the people who are making an attempt to come back to love. Because love is a vibration, it’s a frequency, and I can feel it. Can you?
So I guess the question is… What energy are you putting out into the universe?
If you're wondering how to come back to love.. Check out The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book is a great place to start.
"We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way."e must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world.
