Raise Up; Soften



Life is insane. Moving through this life on this earth is not easy. In fact, it's really fucking hard. Individually and collectively. For all different reasons. Just when you think you've seen it all; just when you think you're at your lowest -- or maybe you've even finally reached your highest -- you're suddenly hit with something you never could have fathomed. Whatever that something is, there was no way you could have ever prepared for it. No way. Well, not for that thing specifically, at least.

You see, the individual life that each one of us lives is a direct reflection of our very own perspective. In essence, we see things as we choose to see them. And that is exactly where our most basic -- yet most transformative -- power lies.

Let's make the decision to view this life through the lens of love. To pick out the happiness, the beauty, the light. The things that lift us up. Surround yourself with people who make you feel good. And I mean the real kind of good. Not that phony kind of good that the ego tricks us into thinking is the real kind of good. I mean the luminous kind of good that comes from the heart. The kind of good that has you walking on actual air. You know it when you feel it.

If we want to make this life a better experience for all, it's our job, collectively, to raise the vibration of this planet. And that collective vibration starts on a singular level. It starts with you. And you, and you, and you, and you. And me.

Let's choose to embody love. To fill each one of our bodies with light until all 50 trillion cells are ready to burst. In a good way.

Some will label us ignorant for even hinting that it's possible to feel happiness at a time like this. And it's not their fault for thinking that way. But we won't let that change us. Instead, we simply turn to them and say, "Try it with me, won't you?"

Because, my dears, there is nothing shameful about being a source of love. Especially at a time we need it most. The future of love and happiness depends on us. We can not -- and will not -- let them dissipate.

I will admit to you I am not love all the time. I fall off and fall off, again and again. I'm not proud of these times, how could I be? What I'm proud of, though, is my ability to notice. To take a step back and a nice deep breath, and decide to start again.

No matter what, we can always start again.

*If you have a feeling that you are the person who inspired this blog post, you absolutely are, and I want to thank you for that. I don't mean "thank you" in a facetious way, even though my stomach has been in knots for the past couple of days. You have reminded me that I need to keep doing the job I know I'm here to do, even though you and I have different ideas of what that job might be. I might not support the route you've chosen to do your own work, and I do believe it might behoove you to soften just a little; to alter the lens through which you're currently looking, but I do, without a doubt, stand behind your passion and your unwillingness to give up. We're all warriors. Each in our own way.

    Dat zet mij ook wel aan het denken, moet ik zeggen. Maar ik ben in ieder geval heel blij om te horen dat
    het goed met je gaat.

  7. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
