If you are reading this, you are here in a body. What have you done with this body since the day you were born? This is a serious question. Write it all down-good and bad, right and wrong, happy and sad, pleasure and pain. All of it. You are the only one who knows what you have endured. Isn't it time you gave yourself a choice? Isn't it time things changed? Isn't it time you took complete responsibility for your choices and changes? Which do you choose to be, victim or volunteer? You didn't know quite what to do with this body when you came in with it. Guess what! None of us did. So what have we learned? Nothing better than to run away. Few of us have taken full responsibility to be in our bodies and truly honor the many ways they have served us. We have allowed others to abuse us, and if there were any rewards (like love offered through abuse) to be had in the process, we allowed that abuse to continue. After all, how else were we going to get any 'goodies' in life? And who were we to think we deserved anything better, anyway? Do we embody the god-self that we are, or walk around talking to ourselves like a god-beings would? NO! We walk around expressing ourselves as undeserving victims of situations.
This has got to stop.
Those of us who are willing (I suspect this includes you) to heal the earth have the capacity to heal ourselves as well. When we become self-responsible enough to accept that we are everything, that we are all there is, that we are energy, then we will begin to use our bodies as the vehicles they are meant to be. Only then will we become the volunteers we came here to be, to do the jobs we came here to do. The time is now. The assistance is here. What are we waiting for? Someone to help us 'know' what to do or what our mission is? I'll bet you already know what your mission is. It is the one people are referring to when they tell you "I see you doing this or that or the other thing", the one you always leave your body to avoid hearing about. You have been resisting your mission all your lie, and your resistance has made you a victim.
Until now, that is. It is time, NOW, for every one of us to accept responsibility for our actions, thoughts and feelings. Until we do, our world will continue on its present course toward self-destruction. We are the only ones who can change its course, and we can do that in an instant. As soon as we change that course within ourselves, everything else must change in response. It is Universal Law. Action, Reaction.
You will see that this is true-you may already have seen it. When you pick up a piece of litter off the ground, a moment later someone does something nice for you that you didn't expect. That is instant manifestation. When you accept responsibility for the harm you have done others with your thoughts or words, love enters your life in new and marvelous ways. And that is only the beginning. As you go within and find the hurts and heal yourself, you will find your outer world offering you love you would hardly have dared dream of before.
Self-responsibility and love are the marks of true prosperity. Born not of obligation, fear or guilt, but of a reverence for the sacredness of all things, self-responsibility is a conscious choice that brings total freedom and healing to our daily lives. When we have that kind of freedom within ourselves, we begin to see the effects of our past choices, and we can learn to make different choices. We can choose love.
To truly make a difference, start with you!
How precious are you? Do you know? Can you access even one part of you that you love? Let's come at the question from the other direction, and I'm sure you will find answers. How many times have you done something wrong, to yourself or someone else? What was it you did? How many times have others told you you should or shouldn't have done or said something? What happened? As a child, how many older people did you look up to whose beliefs you adopted and still hold, even though you now realize they never really felt good or right to you?
Your answers to these questions are the keys to knowing the truth about yourself. If you really want to heal the world, take a look inside yourself. The hurtful beliefs you took on as a child are not going to magically disappear. You have to go inside and clear them out. Until you do, our world will continue to suffer, because you are suffering. It is time to heal those beliefs, release them, and become free.
Stay in your own body!
The freedom you search for outside of you is always there-just outside of you! Did you know that as a child you left your body when you got scared? Leaving was an automatic defense mechanism we all used to protect ourselves, a mechanism that served us well as children. As adults, though, we need to stop running away. Chances are, you are still using this mechanism to escape the pain your daily life-your job, kids, husband, wife, money, 'haves' or 'have-nots'. All of it! What would happen if you were to make the decision to stay in your body, even though it was painful, for that moment? What might you feel that would give you an insight to how you have already created your world? Is it your choice to continue to create your world like the way it is now, or to make a conscious change?
Your body is your vehicle. Think of it as your means for getting around in every moment of every day. Sometimes it moves, and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it rests, eats, has sex, desires entertainment, nurturing. How many times a day do you give it what it desires? How many times a day do you say 'no' to yourself? Do you suppress your car in the same way? When it is low on fuel, do you say 'No, later, when I have money', or come up with some other excuse? If you do, it won't perform for you, will it? It's that basic and simple.
Do you realize the Universe we live in is a 'yes' Universe? Every time you say 'no' to yourself, the Universe says 'yes'-it agrees with you! Is it any wonder you're not getting what you think you want out of life?
Leaving the body creates denial, and denial creates more pain! How? When you leave your body, you are denying your pain. When you deny your pain, you are choosing not to take responsibility for the situation that caused the pain. That was what we did when we thought we had no choice but to accept whatever came our way. Yet each time a painful situation occurred, we were making an unconscious decision-the decision to allow it. Each time we made that decision, it was reinforced and buried even deeper in our body. As we continue this pattern the body begins to have its own reaction, in the form of joint pain, ulcers, cancer, ruptures, and other dis-eases.
Now that we know we have choice, it is time to begin to embody choice instead of denial of pain. We can reverse this process! We can responsibly go back inside the body and honor all the situations we created to learn our life lessons, the lessons we were too afraid to stick around inside the body to heal at the time. We looked outside of ourselves for someone to do it for us, or to give us the answers. Yet the body has its own inner intelligence, and no one can give you your answers, for you are a unique being in a unique circumstance at every moment.
Your body knows how to heal. How do you think you have managed to last as long as you have, through all that you have endured? Isn't this proof enough of its magnificence? You can assist it right now in its healing process by honoring all it has done for you. Honor it for lasting this long! Even though you have not given it love, still it has survived.
Yet, you are more than a survival machine! You are God - precious in every way, to be loved and honored, blessed and cared for in a sacred way, every moment of every day. Nothing is as important as you, inside your body. Breathing, feeling, loving yourself, healing all that has happened in the past. Making new choices, choosing to have the freedom to experience all the love you can and to live the life you came to earth to live, to live your mission. You are an important piece of the Universal puzzle!!!
Are we willing for our earth to be in denial? Well guess what! How do you think the earth got to be in the situation she is in today? By treating ourselves collectively the way we have. It will take every one of us telling the truth about ourselves to begin to reverse this denial within us and heal ourselves and our planet.
