Life happens… and with it are all the tears/pain/offenses… and yes, also the many smiles, the joyful laughter, and perhaps even a little ‘love’.
In the end whichever Energy was strongest is the one that will shape you and your Life… except for those cutting Heart Wounds which have managed to bury themselves deep within you!
Now you are ‘leaking Life’… and no matter how hard you try, or how deserving you’ve become, you still struggle to achieve your deepest desires…
Here it is easy to give in, to change and become a ‘distortion’ of your True Self – to see Love becoming dismissed as a ‘romantic notion’, Inner Peace as something talked about in Asian Scriptures(but that really has no place in your real world), politics as serving Special Interest Groups, and those in Authority wallowing in corruption… not a pretty picture, but unfortunately a very real Dark Energy which surrounds our whole planet.
So what are you to do… yes, you who is committed to Spiritual Growth, who still embraces the Qualities of Compassion, Understanding, and strives to find the Brotherhood of Man.
Do you allow this corrosive environment to twist into a better version of yourself… or to turn your back to all this infantile behavior and become a hermit…or seek shelter in a monastery(hey, I tried that so often in my past lives… I can tell you the food isn’t very good, and they have no chocolate…!… well, so much for ‘the Food of the Gods’).
…but if you do nothing then what happens to you…?
As you grow Spiritually, your Vibration becomes more ‘pure’, more refined… and now this precious Self Image becomes bright and radiant with Loving Energies… and at this point you need to be more aware of Who and What you surround yourself with, for many will be jealous, and even angry, at your success… and if you blindly and innocently just go about your life, then all you have achieved may be brutally shattered by their negative, corrupting Energies.
So what can you do about all this? Well, there are Shields and Filters and Higher Spiritual Practices… there is your personal Evolution, your clarity and sensitivity. Ultimately it all comes back to Choices… for you are not some powerless simpleton who is easily swayed by all that is shiny and glittering…
No, you are a powerful Force in your own Right… if only you’d claim it.
