Encouraging kindness, and enlightenment
(read slowly and carefully)
By: Eric (Skyblayde) Estrada
Times are changing
and things will never be the same.
In the recent years, technology has advanced dramatically. Society has Changed.
Our daily way of life has been altered forever.
Our power has resurfaced time and time again through our creativity,
proving the impossible,
it stands strong against our ignorance..
which has left those bound by this ignorance, in awe of its splendor.
We all strive to make a difference of some kind, to become a productive citizen, an important person. We all feel that to lose this "rat race" is to be worthless.
But I tell you this. You are wrong.
The Survival of the Fittest will no longer apply to the future generations ahead.
If one goes down, we all will go down.
We all long for a meaning, and when we find none, we often create our own.
Often indulging in the past and the future, and forgetting the now. We have focused on not becoming, but rather, focused on Indulging in what and who we are.
Life is not about who you are. It is about who you want to be. It is time to realize this.
But in order for one to know what they want to be, they must know what they are and what they are not.
This is the reason that people suffer. You must know pain to truly understand and know what pleasure is. You must know rich to know poor. To completely understand love, one must know fear.
Our mistake is that we have trapped ourselves in fear... we have become too attached to this fear-based love, This Fear based reality... We have forgotten true pure unconditional love. And this is exactly what we need to remember...
It is time to give the world what they lack.
For the worlds greatest problems stem from a lack of love.
Marianne williamson once said:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fears is that we are all powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.
and we ask ourselves,
who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented or faboulus
Actually, who are you not to be?
We are beings of love. It NOW is the time to BE!
Each and every course of action, or lack of action, that you take... every single choice... every word or smile, Has an impact on your life, whether it be major or minuet, as well as in the daily lives of others around you.
Our world is becoming more advanced, and thus, our choices and situations have become far more complex. The daily things that we usually take for granted, affects all of our lives, as a whole, not just yours. Such as how we "just" might throw a cigarrete butt on the ground, carelessly thinking of it, or not responding to someone in need, expecting someone else to handle it.
How long does it take to hold open a door for someone?
How HARD can it be to give a stranger a smile or a freindly nod and hello?
How much could you help someone, by simply saying a good qoute, or giving a helping hand,or even offering advice.
How many people would you encourage, if you showed them one single act of kindness.
How many people would begin to recognize not all people are bad, if just one simple man decided to love them for what
they are and admire them for who they want to be.
How many of us would rather ignore a request for help rather than help someone in need?
How many would not react and dig their nose deeper in a book, if you hear someone screaming?
How many would get more into their video games, if they hear someone crying?
How many of you would expect someone else to take the responsility of taking action?
How many of you would act, on instant, with no excuses as to why not- ??
Women are taught to scream FIRE when being raped in New york, because most people won't respond!
Once I heard of a woman who had been assault over a period of 3 days and eventually murdered making very LOUD noise the whole time in an apartment building. No one did anything about it.
They had expected someone was already helping.
And this is how WE are?
It does not matter if it will interrupt your plans, or daily schedule...
it does not matter if you are late for work...
it does not matter if your worst enemy is helping...
and it should not matter what race/religion (s)he is.
Would you act, if this person was in dire need?
WE ARE THE HUMAN SPECIES! WE ARE PART OF THIS WORLD! AND WE-AS-A-RACE WEILD SOME OF THE GREATEST POWERS THIS UNIVERSE HAS TO OFFER!
HOW CAN YOU LET OTHERS TAKE AWAY YOUR POWER!?
Who else can take responsibility for the actions of the human race, save the human race themselves?
If EVERYONE threw away their trash on the ground every day, the earth would be a mess, the earth would die fast.
The Individual DOES contributes to the masses.
The Secret to Abundance is simple when one understands this simple concept:
If everyone always TOOK from others, eventually few would hoard everything while the rest suffered miserably from a lack of EVERYTHING.
But if everyone always GAVE to others, everyone would constantly receive, and no one would EVER suffer from a lack of ANYTHING
so what are we doing to ourselves?
It is possible to care about everyone, even if some do get on your nerves.
It is even possible to fall in love with humanity, when considering their AMAZING potentials. We, The Human race have the most amazing ability to express and manifest our imagination in such a way that it is becoming more real every day.
As Albert einstien once said
" He who can no longer stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
It is the (wo)man that becomes situated in the mindset of "nothing surprises me anymore"... who has lost touch with the joyous rewards of curiosity, who no longer hungers to know. It is the insatiable thirst that leads our sciences head-on, that these people have forgotten. These people...It is They who have forgotten their inner child."
Most people are content to settle for the normal...
but ladies, and gentlement, we are living in an age where we must stop settling for "normal" and "ordinary", This is a time to start heading beyond. This is a time to forget old social standards, to leave behind the "old and worn out" ways of doing things. It is a time to CREATE. It is a time to IMAGINE and MANIFEST and BELIEVE!!!!!
These are times when everything we can think of can have possibility, Anything we can believe in, Can manifest...
We are each unique, we each have a talent, some never seek to find these talents..
others find them the day they are born. some even find it accidentally.
Each person is different from the other, as a snowflake is never the same as any other snowflake.
Those who long for a change, and those who are afraid of change, I urge you, be aware, change is iminent.
There is work to be done. But the work does not lie in actively making things happen in public, We do not need to try to change the world... but rather,we should be taking actions and providing influences upon our own personal selves.
Take care of yourself!
I was told once by an intoxicated man who was sitting by a fire when i was at the age of 13, something that changed my life.
This man seemed of no importance at the time, but seeing as how my mother knew him(although vaguely) I gave him the benfit of doubt.
He told me to come closer so he could have a look at me, and as his eyes looked over me, I saw something in him that was beyond human... To this day I swear God spoke through him to me...
I looked at him, thinking he was insane, half scared, half curious and he said something to me that changed my life forever.
he said to me, "Study thyself, only then will you become great... boy, only then will you become great."
This kind of comment caught me off guard.
It is a constant and daily reminder, that, the better i know myself, the better I will understand others as well as the nature of reality.
The times are coming where we will be faced with a great decision.
Till then, the best way to make a difference in the world, is to work on yourself so that you may contribute to others, rather than forcing others to be what you think is right.
I myself, am too busy controlling myself to be worried about controlling others.
Alot of people are full of fear.. But we need to become fearless.
But according to a 3 year old child, mentioned in the Indigo Children book, The mother says "son, do you know what fearless means?"
the boy says "Yes"
She asks "what does it mean son?"
he responds with "I believe in myself!"
Fearlessness is not the absence of fear, but rather, it is believing in yourself.
Our world cannot change suddenly, but our people can take care of themselves and others. We must brace ourselves for the next leap in human evolution. because soon, What exists in our imagination, will surface, and provide the next steps of our reality.
How fast we can adapt, determines our survival, and whether or not you can dish out enough love for yourself, or for others, will determine our future. PLEASE remember... One man can contribute.
"What you believe, determines what you make real"
