Ever noticed how life can catch up with you? How many times have you put things off only to find yourself at a point where you wished you hadn’t? How many things have you wanted to achieve but have allowed life to get in the way of attaining those goals?
There very likely isn’t a single person who can say that they haven’t set aside their hopes and dreams because of something else that they’ve allowed to take precedence. And why do we do this? Is it because we see ourselves as unworthy of having a good life and having everything that we want? Is it a societal thing that we are taught that it’s ‘not right’ to want everything for ourselves?
There most certainly is more than enough of everything to go around – and yes we are a couple of billion people on the planet. However, if you understand the laws of creativity, then you will understand that to want something is to create it yourself. No-one is going to do it for you and in fact no-one else can do it for you. Now that’s an interesting fact to ponder.
It’s just not possible for someone else to create something for you or to make things happen in your space. Therefore, you have to do it yourself. So the saying that goes ‘if you want something done, do it yourself’ is absolutely true and there in fact is no sarcasm in it at all. Problem is that people do use that phrase incorrectly which is why no-one fully gets it!
In creating things or situations or experiences for ourselves, we are able to share those things, situations or experiences with others. And that’s where the sharing of knowledge comes into play. That’s where we get to develop ourselves and grow as human and spiritual beings through the interactions with others that allow us to participate in each other’s lives.
So whilst we are expected to take responsibility and accountability for ourselves and ‘do’ our life ourselves, we are not expected to do it alone. In fact, we are expected to do it together because that is the only way that we can grow. If we lived on our own on a deserted island, there would be no possible way that we could learn anything except perhaps how to survive at the most basic level. But learning to survive through relationships on every level and of every kind, is how we get to know and understand ourselves and how we get to know and understand other people. And when we get it right, it is so rewarding.
Know that it is possible that today could be your last day to experience this lifetime, or could be the last day for someone that you love to experience their lifetime or even someone that you don’t love but have some kind of relationship with; and know that for this very reason, we need to treat each other only with love and respect. For if it was your last day, would you not want to be treated in such a way that when you left the earth, you would feel loved and honoured. It is our duty to each other and to ourselves and it is our birthright too. For this very reason too, we should never put off what we want. We would never want to leave this world with regrets or land up being old and regretting the things that we didn’t do or the things that we didn’t allow ourselves to have. Remember that regret is such wasted energy!
So go through each day understanding that each and every one of us has a story and each and every one of us has the same and equal right to be here. Go through each day remembering that you are God and that your fellow human beings are God too. Love, Honour and Respect, and never put off for tomorrow what you can do today, and the world will be a much better place!
