This past year I became a fan of a guy named Matt Kahn. I have enjoyed his YouTube videos and his message, which is so simple it’s ridiculous and you wonder why you didn’t know that already. He is coming out with a new book but has already done videos on the topic, which is simply “Whatever arises, love that.”
I understand the point. I mean, I totally get it. I know why, but I don’t know how. I’ve sort of issued a personal challenge to myself on that regard to love all that has arisen over the last year. But oh, that’s a big challenge.
I listened to a new one today that talked about Mastery and the message was a step farther than to love. The message was to Bless. You are Blessed. It does have a resonance to it. I can feel the vibration when I think it to you as I write. The You is the collective you, the personal you, and since You are saying it, the I. You and whomever you are speaking to and everyone. It reverberates blessing all around. He goes on to say more cool stuff about blessing others. Check it out by clicking here.
I’ve got to say that I am down in the dumps this afternoon. In another 10 days the 5th grade will be over, and somehow Erin not being here will be even more real. Silly huh? Whatever the psychology behind that, it feels more real. A friend and parent sent me a picture of a tribute piece to Erin on the 5th grader’s chandelier, their legacy project. I haven’t yet been able to respond because it’s too upsetting. It was clearly a picture of a fairy and she would have loved it. But it hurts too damn bad to think about. I will post it when I’m able.
I also had lunch with Melissa and Simone H. on Saturday. It was so good to see them both. I miss Erin’s friends and their parents. They gave me a beautiful purple butterfly bush, and Simone showed me her anime artwork (which was outstanding by the way). I haven’t mentioned that yet either because I was more emotional about it than I thought I would be. It just plain sucks.
As I sit here and write this, I am bound and determined to be the Master and not the student, the power and not the victim, and step into whatever this lifetime meant for me to be. I know that no matter how painful, one does not walk on a journey for no reason. You may not find out until late in the journey, or perhaps the end, why you walked that path, but nothing is without purpose. One of the things that Matt Kahn said in his video today is that you see stuff happening in the world and you wonder why it’s that way. Well, you had to see the need for blessing it, and you are here to bless it. Each and everyone of us are here to bring blessings to the world and those around us. So with tears in my eyes I am saying You are Blessed. You are Blessed. And thank you Matt Kahn for bringing me that gift today. I really needed it.
Namaste, #missingerin , and You are Blessed <3
