In Casting A Stone You Better Have No Ego.

I feel sick and I am afraid to show it.

 

Afraid to speak about needing help.

Afraid to go outside of my home and sneeze.

To cough.

To have my allergies.

 

Yes right now is a strange time,

is it not?

 

It is a time where more people are concerned for their health than ever before.

Shiz we don’t panic like this about getting in our cars and driving some place yet so far in 2020 alone there have been 288,502 automotive deaths in the world.

 

We don’t stop consuming all the toxins that we know cause cancer do we?

No matter a fact there was a run on the grocery stores for just these items…lol

and yet just so far in 2020 there have been 1,755,279 deaths from cancer.

 

We don’t run and grab knives out of everyone’s hands that are holding one, or freak out about everyone who is having a bad day and look at them paranoid like they are going to do something even though there have been 229,184 suicides so far in 2020.

 

And yeah, we stay clear of those who we know have the flu…

and no one wants the flu. – Self included.

 

But we don’t look at small children in the grocery store who cough or sneeze like they will kill us with their natural human functions, even though there have already been 103,869 deaths from the flu in 2020.

 

No, we do not feel ashamed of these things.

We just carry on and even inquire if someone needs some tea or groceries bought.

We do not have a run on toilet paper over flu season.

And we do not shun the old and young because of a cold.

 

But, TODAY….

Today on planet earth we shame for illness.

We shame for age.

We shame for sneezing and coughing and wheezing.

We shame for watery eyes and clearing the throat.

We look at our friends and neighbors like they have a gun in their hand for offering a hug or a hand up a step.

 

No…

No…

I got this.

I don’t need “you” to touch me.

 

Yes my fine fellow humans, ‘we are forgetting our humanness.

We may preach that we love our neighbors,

that we want to help the poor, the old, the ill,

but when it comes down to it…

our animal natures,

our instincts to cast out what we perceive as weak or dangerous offsets it all.

And we SHAME.

 

This Is how we humans deal with that, that we are not comfortable with.

With that, that we do not understand.

We shame those who have it,

or we assume may.

 

Forgetting that assumption is often wrong.

Not allowing any logic to lead.

And certainly not allowing our hearts a voice.

For all we hear is the screaming of FEAR.

 

We are being given an opportunity to grow in this chaos,

we are being given a chance to support and build a world community, where boraders and skin color, religion or sex do not matter.

We are being provided a beautiful opportunity to heal ourselves,

from the inside out.

To change our thinking.

To change how we perceive one another.

To come into alignment with our hearts,

and to show compassion for self and neighbor alike.

 

And my sweet reader,

I fear we are failing.

I fear that we are allowing our ego’s to rule and thus not evolving,

but instead stepping backward in fear.

 

There are places around this world,

where windows are open. You can hear the laughter of families and children playing.

You can hear people singing.

And they are places where the heart still remains.

Even though touch and community are limited,

they have found ways to still connect.

They have found ways to de-armour thier fear and transform it to love.

 

But these places are few and far between.

And if you live in one such as this I speak,

then count your blessings dear reader and send love into this world,

for many other countries are not as such.

For this world to heal,

to find is harmony again,

and for this dark spring to turn to summer once again,

we all must focus on what matters most.

 

We all must inquire how we are impacting the outcome.

Do we speak and act from fear?

Or do we act from compassion and love?

If it were you that were sick or having the stones of shame cast toward you, how would you feel?

 

I end this musing today,

with words to remember,

“Let those among you without sin, cast the first stone.”

 

None of us are without ego.

And none of us have a right to assume.

But we all make our judgements and in doing so,

we create a great separation from truth and ourselves.

We hinder this world and we blind ourselves to love.

 

 

Put down your stone in exchange for a smile.

The Importance of Social Media for Happiness Today.

Caught up in your phone.
Caught up with that small screen of yours.
It is so important isn’t it?
 
It holds your life.
Checking your bank account.
Checking your emails.
Personal and business.
It comes to this one small little world capturing device.
 
What’s happening on Facebook?
On Instagram?
Twitter?
Snap chat?
Whats new on Pinterest and what have you pinned today?
 
This world of ours it is all scrolling by on our wall and here we are missing each other for it.
 
I know how it is.
I really do.
I am oh so guilty of just this,
loosing myself to the mini screen in my hand.
 
And what I have noticed is that when I allow this screen to own my day,
my thoughts and time.
I am more anxious, I am more lost, more insecure.
It’s like my personal value and worth is somehow wrapped up in how many likes, loves or shares my messages gain.
 
I am curious as to what those I follow and learn from are doing, experiencing and enjoying.
 
I might be guilty even of comparing at times.
And here we go baby,
its the social media platform life.
It’s the modern world.
And its like never escaping high school on some days.
 
With all the communication,
all the personal shares and picture posting.
All the debates and livestreams,
you would think that we would grow to be a world society that loves deeper and greater and has better social skills because we have at our finger tips the world that so many of us will never actually be able to go explore to any level.
 
But what has actually occurred is a separation.
We have forgotten our humanness for all the distance between our screens.
 
We now think that it is okay to take the easy route and to be rude, hurtful, deceitful and immature.
We have forgotten that our actions, our words, and how we choose to show up impacts those around us,
and now more so than ever before those around us is a mass.
 
It is the WORLD beautiful that see’s you.
No matter how small a circle you have here in social media land,
your words have a bigger impact then they would have 50 years ago or even a decade.
Because we like, love, angry face and share.
We spread our infections to so many more then we use too.
 
It use to be just a small village that would hold space or burn us at the stake,
but today…
today the village is the WORLD.
 
Today it is even more important then ever before to sharpen up on your social skills.
 
Today it is even more vital to your business,
your personal life,
and the lives of those that you live and share your inner world with,
it is more important today to make sure as f-ck that YOU are being authentic and REAL.
That you are choosing to stand in your truth.
That you are confident in who you are and what you believe,
and that you are walking the path that your CORE,
your SOUL desires.
 
Because as this world has grown ever so disconnected.
The tribes that we build will only have loyalty beautiful,
if they can feel who you are.
 
And if you are weak in who you are,
you will get lost in today’s social media world,
washed up and lost beautiful.
 
And what will come of you,
will be suffering.
You will start to believe that what the WORLD thinks,
what the WORLD says of you is true.
And you will no more be your beautiful self.
 
So today commit to being YOU.
Authentically YOU in this crazy online world of ours.
Today commit to get up to speed on some old school social skills,
like being kind,
being respectful,
being YOU.
Stop with the manipulation, the lies and rude ways that you feel oh so safe in acting on because this small screen of yours is your shield.
 
Time to STEP UP and be Authentically YOU beautiful.
BE YOU and let your SOUL be felt.
Not your fear ego and jealousy.
 
This new world of ours will either make or break you.
 
Now like or love this musing beautiful and make me smile. 😁
