There is a healing energy in the universe. It is the same energy that created the stars, our solar system, the Earth and all life. It has been called by many names by many philosophers over the years of human conscious living, but for today I will simply call it the divine energy of creation and, it is within you and it is within me.
As I write these words I do so knowing they are the catalyst that brings clarity to my thought and from this clarity I create a prototype for reality to fit into. Perhaps you thought it was the other way around? Perhaps you thought you were what fits into the temporal reality you observe around you? I believe it is the opposite. I believe we are the creators of our own reality. let’s just examine this thought for a moment. It is easy to understand that we each have our own unique perspective on the world. Just ask your brother or sister about any particular aspect of your upbringing and you may quickly uncover differences of perspective. But I am suggesting a much higher level of perspective. I am suggesting that each of us is the creator of our own reality. We are the writer, the director, the actor and the editor of our own lives. Perhaps it is a good day for a re-write of some particular aspect of your life. Practice makes perfect.
Recently I have a friend in trouble and more than one friend in need. It is unusual and not the norm for my life, but it is the way of my life in the past month. It provided me the opportunity to do something I love. With a friend in need just become a friend in deed. I helped. That simple. I did what I could. I still have a busy job and a full-time life like most of us but I added to it caring for my friends. Sure it was a bit tiring sometimes as there were three different people who could use some support. Yes one of them was mandatory (taking care of my friends three cats) but I showed up and I did Brad the best I could. And that is really all that I need to do in order to enrich my experience of living. I show up and I do the best I can. I take time for myself but it always includes time for others. I do not get lost or stuck in my own stories because I am always available to help others when their stories are too burdensome for them alone.
And so today I enjoy some solitude. This day is exclusively for me. I take time to realize that I have a choice and that helping is never a hindrance but always an inspiration both for me and for the people that I assist and it also requires that I take time for healing myself. I cannot be a a friend in deed if I also become a friend in need. I remember that in order to live the life I love I must love all of the life I live. And so I do and so it is.
