Be willing to put the hard work into yourself. Look at your own actions and thoughts with a clear mind. Forgiveness is hard work. Being honest with yourself is hard work. Stepping out of your comfort zone is hard work. Admitting You Were Wrong is hard work. Change. Growth. Relationships. Silence… it’s all hard work. All of it.
We have become so incredibly lazy as humans. We want it all handed to us. Let someone else do the thinking for us. Let someone else educate the children. Let someone else make the tough decisions. Let someone else speak up for morality. Let someone else clean up after our own mess.
But “Who am I to judge?” you say. Who are you? Who ARE you??? You are a human being!! With thoughts and feelings and a soul and spirit, a heart, a brain, and an innate moral compass. You KNOW what is right and wrong. Don’t let someone else tell you what is good or bad. You already know. You are a higher being than mere flesh and bones. And so am I. And so are they. Judgement comes from critical thinking. Analysis. Judging right from wrong is not the ultimate evil that has been ingrained in we the people.
Throw away the machines of power and politics. Throw away passivity. Throw away evil. Throw off laziness. Throw off excuses. Throw off neutrality. Turn away from those who incite wrath. Turn away from those who enslave your mind and your heart and your thoughts. Turn away from the old you of yesterday.
Rise up! Walk in the moment! Forgive! Forgive! Forgive again! Open your eyes! Allow your mind to be transformed from the hypnosis you are under. Wake up! Work hard! Fall down, get up. Get dirty! Change your heart. Change your mind. Wash yourself and be clean. Give love freely, without stipulations. And allow yourself to be loved in turn.
