Love the one you blame
It’s Valentines Day. A day for love. How much do you have? For life is asking of you – everything. This is not a time for withholding. Offer up your best.
Do you know why you are here at this specific time in Earth’s history? It is your light. Your capacity to love. You ability to forgive. That’s what got you here.
There needed reasons for the increase to be necessary – “others”. Corrupt, confused, violent, abusive and fraudulent institutions along with beings to run them are seemingly everywhere. We don’t have to look far for someone or something to hate.
Resist the urge. Love the one you blame. What you’ll discover is that by freeing them of “fault”, you in fact free yourself. The chains of judgment are locked firmly around your own heart. Watch what happens when they are unlocked.
You see, freedom doesn’t really start when an “other” grants it to you. Freedom begins when you set yourself free. You do that with unrestrained and unconditional love. It’s all okay.
You can love him. You can love her. You can love them. You can love this. You can love that. You can love you.
Honor the sacred. Refuse to divide. There are none more or less deserving. All are One. You. Me. The cabal. The judge. The politician. The minister. The banker. The rock star. The protester. The gunman. The policeman. The unfaithful partner. The gold. The silver. The money. The president. The pope.
All of us equal. All of us One. What is sacred is everywhere. What is sacred is us.
We are the One’s we’ve been waiting for.
I love you.
Way to go, Clarence.
Sometimes there is nothing to be said. Words do not improve art, once viewed the message is complete. As many times as I’ve watched George Bailey’s transformation in “It’s a Wonderful Life”, it’s held a different sort of inspiration.
Today I see George's life and transformation as a mirror to ours this 2012 year. Despite everything, the treasure he was searching for was in the eyes of the people he was surrounded by. The answers came from there. The solution was love.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Happiest of holidays.
