Told how to think,
How to live.
Who to speak to,
Where to go.
We have forgotten how to be,
Ignoring the voice within.
It speaks, we ignore.
It shoves, we resist.
It provides, we take for granted.
Until one day, no longer ignoring the fire burning within.
A fire so hot…it sets worlds on fire.
A fire from within,
Setting life on ablaze.
We no longer ask what if,
But know with full certainty.
We no longer seek,
But accept that which is laid before us.
Trusting nobody, no thing…
Not even self.
The Master Within…Master of the Universe…Ani Po
I used to think helping others was the way to healing the world. Carrying groceries for someone struggling, holding a door for another. While these are all niceties and are noteworthy, still something remains missing.
Just the simplest form of holding a door for another. Brings great joy, but what about those who do not show gratitude for our good deed? Are we attached to the satisfaction we get from another’s gratitude? Our attachment will bring suffering sooner or later.
Remembering why we do things, if that is what we choose, letting go of outcomes or expected returns. Having no attachment to the deeds we do, our reward will be far greater. Sometimes it is merely worrying (or not worrying) about the self.
We journey inward to self, unleashing hidden fears or hidden strengths. Setting our intentions of self, we set intention for the global canvas of life. As our reality changes so to our world around us changes. As we heal, the world heals.
Holding our own, we are holding space for the greater cosmos. Focusing our intent on clearing our space, we allow healing to take place. As healing within our own space commence, healing and a grandeur plain takes place. At level of self we heal the world.
It is through our own intentions that we share light of hope. In the flicker of hope, others may light from this…passing it onto another. It is said we stand in front of 10,000 possibilities. Meaning for every change we make, there are 10,000 people behind us that are effected. If this is so, what do we intend on doing for self?
Stepping into the Canvas setting Intention. In setting intention, painting a new canvas…a new reality. A thousand realities merge into a single reality of our own.
As we step into the canvas of self, we paint a brighter picture for the world.~Ani Po
It is not our job to fix the world for it does not need fixing. What the world needs is work at the level of self. Healing self, Healing the world.
Through our inward journey of self-realization, we come to a conclusion that the world is as perfect as it is going to get. How we see it will change and how we feel will surely change. It is through self discovery and self-care we find happiness in any given moment. No matter the circumstance, we will find peace and happiness.
As we learn and grow at level of self, the world around us shifts. The world does not need help in fixing itself, but may require more awareness of others. Maintaining self, we learn to extend the same courtesy to mother earth.
We shift, the world shifts. We heal, the world heals. The world around us is merely an extension of self. As we step into the canvas we are stepping into awareness of self and the world around us.
