"You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge."
Eckhart Tolle from A New Earth - Awakening To Your Life's Purpose.
I had plenty to read but I found this book discarded at the Maui Airport on my way home. Returning from a family trip for my parents 50th anniversary, I was tired and pensive about all the many agendas and events. Traveling with family - Ohana - as it is called in Hawaii has it's challenges and delights. The most important thing for me to remember and hold is the love we have for one another.
Maui has many delights. Among my favorites - sunrises, sunsets, macadamia nuts and coconut syrup (with macadamia nut pancakes).The world feels like it is going a bit crazy right now. The US is divided politically and friends posting on facebook are happy about the possibility of a woman becoming president but not Hillary and - well I won't mention some of the things being said about Trump. Fear, Anger, Frustration are some of the emotions I am seeing in public forums. Statistically the US is doing better than it ever has so why are people so dis-satisfied?
We are all energetically changing and the status quo is not good enough anymore. The way we do business, the way we think and feel, the way we live is changing. To what exactly?
That is the million dollar question.
You are creating your New Earth and New Reality. If you build it, it will come. Try to let go of the fear and envision what you would like to see. A pristine Earth, abundance for all, good clean food and water, peace, love, joy. These things all begin with you - in your heart and mind. If you allow your goodness - your light - to emerge, the light in others emerges as well.
As you open to your own goodness, look around at others. Open your heart to the goodness they have within. Together we are one. You may not agree with another but is that a reason for anger? When we can see ourselves in others we enter a state of Grace. A peace of mind which allows for love and joy and no judgement. All things are possible when we work together. It takes all of us to change the status quo.
I have faith we are.
