It’s still hard for us to grasp that we are all One.
We are connected like the fingers of one hand.
We are One Organism.
Every thing on the planet is connected.
When we attack others, we hurt ourselves. Literally.
I heard about a certain truck driver who was easily offended. His life was all about fist fights, until one day, bandaging his wounds, he realized he was mindlessly hurting himself over and over again.
This realization led to his enlightenment.
He began to simply talk with people, to accept them as they were, and to help them if he could.
Back in the early 1980s in Phoenix, a guy went out to the desert to shoot at things, as some people did. He targeted a saguaro, one of these beautiful stately beings that require 75 to 100 years just to grow their first arm. These are the unique treasures found only here in the Sonoran desert (Arizona into Mexico).
This fellow kept shooting at the same spot in the trunk of the saguaro. It weakened, tilted, and fell, as he yelled, “Timber!” and watched it collapse to its death.
Then he started shooting the next saguaro. After all, there were so many big juicy ones standing around him.
Eventually one of his triumphant shouts of “Timber!” brought the smack of a saguaro directly upon this man, killing him.
Now we have this week’s wacky news item, where a woman and her neighbor had some fierce arguments (repeatedly, I’d imagine).
In the morning she went out to find her tire slashed . . . and a hefty half of a finger next to it, with a trail of blood leading to the neighbor’s house.
Doesn’t this episode scream that when you hurt others, you hurt yourself?
And that doesn’t make you “bad” – it just makes you a student in the school of hard knocks. (God bless that suffering neighbor, trying to stanch the bleeding arteries.)
Such are the stories of karma.
The vibration of our planet is shifting into 5D (fifth dimension), into more love and unity.
We are One.
Outmoded thought forms will not survive this (although it may take longer than one generation, I suppose).
Are we ready to drop our outdated
Sense of being offended?
Our need to be “good” and right?
The Divide between us and them?
(We are them.)
We do as much damage when we take offense as when we give offense.
Whom do you find offensive?
Say goodbye to righteous indignation.
Kiss it on the forehead and put it to bed.
(These are reminders to myself!)
Can we truly drop our guard and allow everybody to Be? Like, everybody?
Can the so-called “good” and “bad” be accepted together?
Can we appreciate the contrast within the fruity mix of our dear planet?
I’m just wondering.
What do you think? Feel?
