Love Is What We Are Born With

We are not born with fear. That is something that has to be learned. We are taught to be afraid by circumstances, by people, by false belief. We are born with love, with trust, and with the desire to reach out, the desire to embrace and be embraced. We want to love and be loved because that is our natural state. Why have we chosen to create a state that is not an improvement upon our nature? Wouldn't it be better to embrace what makes us whole?

My Meditation Is Simple

When I read a book, that is my meditation. What I fold the laundry, that is my meditation. When I love my family, that is my meditation. Whatever I do, if I do it truly and with my entire presence, that is my meditation. It is no more complicated than we make it. Be where you are when you are there, and see the improvement that makes in the life that you are living.

What They Look For

It is an unfortunately reality of the human race that we tend to find exactly what we look for. I say "unfortunate" because, for too many people, "what we look for" is the negative, the harmful, and the pain. We want to believe the worst about someone, so we find the worst. We could instead be looking for the positive, the hopeful, and the healing. We could be finding what would make things better. I'm willing to try. Will you?

We Do Not Fear The Unknown

We have a bad habit of making assumptions and then treating those assumptions as if they were valid facts. We are afraid because we have told ourselves that we have reason to be afraid, and then we shut down and never learn anything more. It is not the future that scares us. It is not change or what might be. What scares us is what we have chosen to believe. Perhaps, instead, we might choose to believe that we are not afraid. Perhaps we might choose to believe that we can make the future something beautiful. Just imagine what we might accomplish.

I Shall Not Live In Vain

I may not be able to change the world, but I can change some part of it. I may not be able to convince all people, but I can help someone to see. I may not be able to do it all, but I can do something. Every little thing counts, and we can all do some little thing. Do your part to make the world a better place, and the world will be a better place. It really is that simple.

Changing Myself

When I was a child, everything was out there, somewhere. As I grew, I learned to assign boon or bane to more specific sources and thought that I had gained a great skill. If I could find the source of this misfortune then I could fix it and thus fix the misfortune. The more I learn, however, the more I come to realize that everything I have the power to fix is only that which is purely within, not without. I cannot tame the storm, but I can dance in the rain. I cannot change the world, but I can change my interactions with the world and, in doing so, the world changes. I can change me, and that is enough.

There Is No Other

We create the idea of Other out of fear. There may be other symptoms - confusion, anger, pain, to name but a few - but, at heart, they all lead to fear. We do not know, and we fear what we do not know. It is, at times, easier to hide from that fear, and so we assign an Other. If we face our fears, however, if we take the time to learn, we usually find that there is no other. We find that we all share the same hopes and joys, the same heartaches and sorrows, and we find that we can work together to maximize the one and reduce the other. We are all together, and we will all feel the same sting or the same balm. What we most want for ourselves, we would do best to achieve for all.
