“It is the good fortune of many to live distant from the scene of sorrow; the evil is not sufficient brought to their doors to make THEM feel the precariousness with which all American property is possessed.”
– Common Sense, Thomas Paine (1776)
I allow many things to resonate with me before I speak on them. This was drafted on June 12, 2016 at 5:09 pm and may not have seen the light of day had I not meditated on it. I’ve come to a point in my life where I don’t want to bombard my readers with the media’s sorrow, especially when it’s fueled by fear. A lot of what we see on the news is about scaring people and making them feel pity, disdain, or concern which distracts them from their true purpose. I feel a great loss when any soul is lost, but I simply ask that everyone involved and/or affected takes a moment to think about what leaving this Earth really means. They are free from all that woes you.
I’m not saying it won’t or shouldn’t hurt that they are gone, but a part of you can rest easy because they don’t have to endure the ugliness that the world keeps spewing and re-spewing. As you fight to keep yourself well and strong through this process, please keep in your heart that everything is okay with them now just like everything will one day be okay with you again. Losing a cherished soul is hard and the times I’ve faced it it’s left a sting I can’t put words to, but my aunt would always say, “Baby…this world is where you pity folks, not what comes after.” It’s a simple quote, but it gets me to see beyond the harsh picture before me.
So much corruption, so many lies, so much engineered and falsified “grand” occasions are constantly happening to disconnect these wondrous people from what will truly make them happy… I’m not contributing to that anymore. We’re reconnecting…
We’re reconnecting to our soul purpose.
