Ah, the good old days, when you could leave your front door unlocked… your bike on the porch and even misplace your wallet AND have it be returned intact!! Ah… those days of pure innocence, when people were kind, gentle, and trust was rewarded… not so much anymore! Today you are strongly advised to install an alarm system / close-circuit cameras / keep a watch-dog and even put bars on your windows..
Because the world is going through a dark patch, where just being dissatisfied is no longer a stimulus for getting better, but a justification for violence and abuse… where ‘those that have’ do not feel any responsibility towards ‘the have-nots’, but keep exploiting them, all in the name of ‘entitlement’ And I could go on and on, but you get the picture – it’s no longer a ‘nice’ world…
So, why am I ranting…?
Simple -we must all learn how to protect ourselves, and our loved ones… else suffer the consequences. Now, most of you will say that you do lock your doors, buy insurance, keep yourself as safe as possible… and to these I say: “Good job… for baby-steps !”
You see, it’s not enough to take care of the obvious, material things… nope, you must equally pay attention to the Energies you have around you [after all, paranoia may well turn your home into a fortress, but that ain’t no way to live, bro!]
Look, it’s quite simple – the other day I was at a my favorite grocery store [yes, organic], shopping for ingredients for my famous lasagna… looking forward to a delicious week-end… and… I just kept getting more and more aggravated, stressed, brusque, and even downright snippy[now – those of you that know me, would reassure y’all that I may well be many things… but ‘snippy’ is not one of them!]
So, in the end I left my shopping temple, frustrated and upset [for no apparent reason!]… and guess what… I forgot to buy the cheese… !!! [of all things !]
Yes, there is a point to my rumblings… hold on to your horses…
Visible acts of violence or abuse are seen clearly… they are obvious… but we always forget that there are more ‘invisible’ negative / contaminating! corrosive energies… AND that these are ALL around us, at all times… we literally [yes, I use the word correctly] literally ‘swim’ through the most yucky energies you’ve ever see… everyday !!!
They are not necessarily ‘evil’… just your common everyday ‘worry’, stress, illness, concern… or just a lovers’ quarrel… all this gets dumped, willy-nilly, where-ever you go… and you step on it without even realizing it… now trekking it back into your home… all because you are not aware![no excuses bro ! you still got s**t on your shoes]
Which brings me to my final point [yes, you can relax now… well, just a little…]
