Recently I read the following quote by George Bernard Shaw”
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
My response to reading that quote is wow. How many people in my world these days recognize and acknowledge they are being used for a mighty purpose or that they are being a force of nature? They’re out, no doubt about it. I’m in communication with many of them through Facebook and through comments on my blog, my friends, my family.
However as I look at the tragic state of the world, this Country even, I observe a great many more who, instead of recognizing their purpose or instead of being a force of nature, truly find themselves as “a feverish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself” to making them happy. That is their identity. Their physical ailments, their aches and pains, their emotional outbursts, their mental fatigue.
Nothing human is going to fix them — or fix anything in the world. Only Spirit and a true change in consciousness, a change in identity, will lift them out of their feverish clod of ailments state of dying (as opposed to a state of being).
My remedy? Dance, Move, Express Spirit, Create Change. Be the Source, Not the Seeker. It’s all here. Now.
Be responsible for your world. I watched a 3 hour movie, “Cloud Atlas” last night. Hard to follow the 6 lives through the past, present and future, but the basic premise was that our thoughts, our words and our actions create our world and how we live our lives has a far greater impact on the world — this world and future worlds — than we can ever imagine.
BE. LIVE. LOVE. SPEAK WITH INTEGRITY. DON’T TAKE THINGS PERSONALLY. DON’T ASSUME ANYTHING. DO YOUR BEST.
If you do those things, any physical ailment, heart break, mental anguish is annihilated in the presence of your greatness. Do it.
