Change is something that must happen on the inside. No matter how much we rage against the machine true change can only come from those bold enough to work within the old to create the new. As we fight with the inner conflict that a journey into peace creates it is important to have some healthy boundaries about what is necessary and what must end now. Therefore it is also important to know where you stand with yourself and others. Having a code of honour to live by enables us to define who we want to be and how we want to approach things however it is also important to factor our own humanity into the equation. Take the time to ponder your needs and then think about how life would be if you were without all that you have right now. Could you live on the street? Could your mother, father or siblings? Could you go hungry? Could you walk right past while someone else is in trouble? Then place yourself there in the role of that person in trouble how would you react if they just walked right past without helping you? Make a note of your own nature some have the strength to cope with anything others do not, as it should be we must remember to be observant and respect the meek as well as the strong. The meek are often working on other levels of consciousness that can only be appreciated if we take the time to observe their experiences with an open heart and mind. Knowing what we can and will tolerate and what we will not enables us to redefine our own needs and desires and co-create something better for ourselves and others. Life is intolerable sometimes and becoming intolerable yourself just creates more pain for you and those that care about you. Take a moment to reflect on the thought that perhaps your soul chose your family, your friends and the world you have been born into. Then reflect on why. This will remind you that the world is cycling just as we do and that this is a time of release and renewal. Relax, respect and be tolerant, true change is on its way, be part of the solution no the problem.
