Many Blessings to you all on this truly fresh day!
Life is a truly wonderful thing to experience.
We do not get to choose the circumstances in which we are delivered into, however the Creator does not make mistakes, so one must realise that they are placed where they are supposed to be and in the correct time for them to be there- whether we agree or not- there is vital meaning to our positioning in this Universe.
It is all to easy as we allow ourselves to be dictated to by outside sources to loose site of or never to gain site of our reason to be, but inside... We know.
We all have ideals in our hearts of what we think should and shouldn't be, some of these ideals keep us morally grounded, honest, respectable to our fellow brethren and as reasonably well behaved citizens.
What we must never forget is that not all beings have peaceful ideals.
Not all beings see honesty as anything important. Respect is not something everyone has.
Not all beings wish for fairness or believe we are equals. In fact, some beings make it their duty to feed off of other's energy, time, emotions, resources etc in order to boost themselves with little or no regard to how it will affect another.
I find it my duty to warn you decent people of these beings.
While it is lovely to trust and be open with one another - ONE MUST PROTECT ONESELF!
This is a time where none can afford to be naive... for there are entities that will use, abuse and keep right on stepping looking for their next victim, they will see nothing wrong with this... it is just their way, as long as they get what they want, who else matters?
None of us are perfect, but I trust the majority of us are gaining in maturity and humanity everyday. Part of that Maturity is being aware of and accepting (not necessarily agreeing with) that we are all different, and have different roles in this real life movie.
Protagonists, antagonists, supporting roles and villains are but a few that we come into contact with daily and whose roles we take on ourselves in different situations/ scenes.
Luckily we do get to choose what role we play.
In the words of Annie Lennox
"Some of them want to use you, some of them want to be used by you.
Some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused"
The things that happen to us are the things we allow to be done to us.
For those of you whose rose tinted glasses have never been peered beyond, I'd like to tell you to be aware. You can't be no fool out here!
But should you encounter the sting, the abuse of those you put your trust in, the bitter taste of some people's ego stroking, immaturity, ignorance or down right wickedness... Let me tell you, LIFE GOES ON BABY! BELIEVE ME, LIFE GOES ON!
Even if you feel like your heart has been ripped out, drawn by wild horses through the wilderness, tattered by poisonous thorns, ripped to shreds by a starving salivating pack of wolves, defecated on, set on fire with a blow torch and left alone to blow to all four corners of the Earth.... Yes, Even then, LIFE GOES ON!
It is up to you now that you have proof of their ways weather you will put up with such treatment or not. It is up to you if you wish to keep these beings around you or in your life. Purely down to you if you allow anyone the space in your life to upset, perturb or distress you. The decision is truly yours and yours alone!
If you choose to give space, time and audience to such like, do not bother the world with your complaints or cries of pain, as you have clearly chosen to have them there creating more pain, defecating on what should be your beautiful life experience.
We were born alone, and alone shall we return to the Most High, hopefully with our works completed.
There will be Real friends, associates, family members, lovers, spouses, colleagues with whom collaboration will be blessed, just be aware that you are not always the one giving more than you receive. Real love goes both ways.
"Everybody Hurts, sometimes"
Look for the lesson in the experience so you may learn and grow, pick up the pieces, Then...Get Yo Ass back up, Coz we got "no time for fake ones!"
There is MUCH work to be done if we are going to make this world a better place.
