Respect Yourself Respect the Journey

carnival-293261_1280So amazing watching the world shift, change, and people transition from the old energies of compassion and judgement to the new energies of respect and tolerance. I went to a large event today and saw a speaker whom I have admired for a long time. It was interesting to see the first words coming out being both derogatory and defying rather than the expected. As this speaker seemed on a mission, to prove to the audience that he was not the fantasy nice guy, he portrays in the shows he has appeared in. As I was thinking I did not come to hear this, I came to glimpse into the world that you live and world within. It was amusing to hear the next sentence from an audience member, “I have been a fan of yours all my life and really admire your work”.

He stood there stunned and I wondered if like me others were thinking he deserved that. As he continued to speak, he was actually nice when he was not trying to escape that part of himself. I pondered the position he was placing himself in, why be there if you are not a fan of the fantasy you portray? Why do we persist to give of ourselves when we have nothing left to give and how do we claim back our inner truth when we run from our fears? Most importantly, why are we afraid to be nice?

It seems there is a deeper self that hides from the world and whenever it just shines out we want to just stomp it right back down there into the darkest spot we hide it. Respecting the self and the souls journey seems to be what is required when times are crazy. Taking the time to recognise that you have come here for a reason and that all it takes to enjoy the journey is to be yourself. The real self you hide away, when you try to please others or rebel against the world.

When we relax and share our experiences without judging the journey we seem to be a nice guy, even if we think we are not. Perhaps its time to recognise, that we are not our mistakes, our fears or our expectations. We are but a soul journeying through the perceptions of the self and its impact on its own environment.

As I pondered the position, he was placing himself in I could clearly see that respect was his challenge. It seems those of us that need to gain tolerance will have quite a challenge on our hands. Just as those who are seeking to understand, respect will struggle with its truth. This also left me pondering where the line is drawn, when it comes to respect and tolerance, in my own life. More work to be done, it seems.

So nice to know the younger generations are born with one of these gifts and are embracing them right now, bringing balance back to our world.
