Today my Paradigm Shift newsletter, the Daily Blessing #99, had this quote at the top:
Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.
– Henri Frederic Amiel
I have never heard of this quote or the person it is attributed to, but it certainly speaks to me. For so many reasons, life on this earth is certainly a dark journey. Some of the reasons seem to be lessons to learn for soul growth, clearing karma, earning ascension or heaven (depending on your beliefs), and many others. We suffer, we keep going because we have a promise of something better in the future. Some don’t keep going. They don’t see anything better in the darkness. But doesn’t there have to be?
Doesn’t have to be, but without that promise, we would all lose hope. And yet we are one of the most unkind species on the planet. Most animals treat others better than we do. I do see an influx of light lately though. More and more people are opting for kindness, for love versus hate, opening to new ideas and new ways of facing this thing that we call life…
Last night, I had an interesting dream. In one portion of it, there were tons of monkeys dressed in little red bell hop coats and hats. They were running like nuts, after me. But I was at this point looking at a screen and maneuvering myself with a joystick. It was really me, but so was the person on the outside. I have no idea yet what this was telling me, but it could be the 100th Monkey idea. It could also be showing me that my Soul, the “real” me, is maneuvering the Human Body me from a different perspective. I’m pretty sure that part is spot on, but I have no idea about the monkeys. That one may take some time to ponder!
I just read a quote that said something like, let your light shine brightly so that you can light the way for others in the darkness. I can tell you from experience, some days I can shine on, and other days I need your light to find my way. We are all in this together my friends, even some of you think we are not. At the very least, we are all stuck on this planet (for now), and without kind and loving cooperation we are all doomed. Yep – doomed. You can pick your nasty outcome and insert here.
So with that said, I love you all and wish you a kind, loving, and blessed day. If you start to feel stressed with the wave of new energies coming onto the planet, just take a deep breath and breathe out love in return. Your light will shine and others will see it.
