Know Thy Self

 

If you had the stage… the undivided attention of the world… and all were listening… What words of wisdom, council or advice would you share?

“Know Thy SELF. We must look within to find love, peace, and beauty, and when we find it within, we will find it outside, in our lives, in people, in our existence. First one must face down the fears that are stopping them from accessing the deepest wellspring of knowledge inside of us all, the Source of all life. Once we look each fear square in the eye, walk through it, feel it, observe it, allow it to be heard, then we can let it go, because in the light, coming out of the shadows, it will disappear. As we pull out each fear, we allow room for more love, more understanding, more clarity, more beauty, and more peace, until we are filled to the brim with all these qualities and emptied of all the hate and judgment and guilt and jealousy and resentment and fear that we all project out into the world. Instead we will project the light we find within, and all the shadows and dark places in the world will be filled with the light and joy of your own heart. We need only to take care of our own hearts, and if we all did that, if we all took responsibility for our feelings and thoughts, we, together can make a heaven
on earth.”

Looking ahead… as far, or as close as you want to imagine (one or hundreds of years)– What do you think we should be doing now to prepare for the future?

“Stay in the moment, be clear in the moment, be peaceful and loving in this moment, for this moment becomes the future. If you don’t take care of right now, the future will never be taken care of. The future is how you feel right now, what you see right now. Give your vision to the moment so it may become the future.”
