Any Moment of Loving

Any moment of hating, any moment of lying, any moment of resentment
Is a moment of dying.

Any moment of loving, any moment of giving, any moment of thankfulness
Is a moment of living.

All our moment add together like the digits of a sum
And the answer tells us plainly whether life or death shall come.

–Martin Exeter

It’s been my experience in the recent past of witnessing myself getting involved in the ugliness and hatred that seems to be currently rampant in the world…to the point of creating an imbalance in my physical and emotional well-being.  My reflux and anxiety have climbed to a point that a choice had to be made.

A.  Do I want to continue venting my frustration over the lack of leadership that I sense in the human nature world; do I want to continue to be a part of the insanity and madness that is driving humanity toward the brink of extinction?  Do I truly believe this is my purpose?

B.  Or do I want to be the voice, mind, heart and body of Love in action?  Do I want to fill my being and thus my world with the qualities and characteristics of Life, Love and Truth.  Do I sense that this is truly my sacred livelihood?

I choose Option B — for my physical, mental and emotional well-being and because that really is the truth of who I am.  That is my purpose.  That is my sacred livelihood.  It is what allows me to be in the place of stillness amidst a world in chaos; it is what allows me to be a beacon of light in a world of darkness.

The anger, resentment and immaturity that spits out of the mouths of those who are unconscious of their thoughts, words and action is truly regretable but understandable.  They know not what they do.

The anger, resentment and immaturity that spits out of the mouths of those who are conscious, who are awakened, who know their purpose, is reprehensible.  It goes against everything that is uplifting and joyful, everything that is radiant and made from the fabric of Love, everything that I espouse to be my life’s journey.

So, I can no longer be a willing participant in the divisiveness.  The path this world, this planet is traveling, does so because of humanity’s unwillingness to rise above their self-centered power struggle and state of disillusionment.  No wonder there is so much sickness, illness, disease, war, murder, rape, and abuse in the world.  How could it not be like that?  What is expressed into the world, creates the world.

The only power is in the power of Spirit.  Everything else will crumble and fall.

The ways of the world are not my ways.  And so I dance the dance of life.

  1. With all of the ways we have to communicate and see information it is a challenge sometimes to not get caught up in it. It is everywhere. Dancing is a great way to avoid it (if that is the choice), express it (if that is the choice), shake it off (if that is the choice), live with it (if that is the choice), workt through it (if that is the choice) . . . . get the drift here? Dancing is GREAT!

    Hugs to you!

    • Thank for stopping by Terre!! For me, the most important expression is that of Spirit — I can’t express it fully if I’m distracted by the ways of the world. And yes, that is easy to do these days. I’m making it my goal and intention to stay centered in spirit and the easiest way is to dance!!! I have so many replies to do to your blogs! I’ll get there!

      • Well said Jill. Each day we are faced with choices. I recall a wise person once saying “we die daily to self”…the ego self. That is a conscious choice. To quote the words of one Master “unless a grain falls to the earth and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat. But if it dies, it bears much fruit”. That’s how it is with us. And in my mind/heart/being, the reaffirming of that choice each day is what allows me to be detached from the ways of the world. (I fail miserably sometimes, but when I remember to make the choice of stepping outside of self, I better serve Self!)
