Welcome to another newsletter. What's covered:
“The enemy is FEAR, we think its Hate; but it is Fear.” Gandhi
Fear is the ultimate cause of the pain, violence and darkness we have seen not just in US but around the planet. Fear is at the base of hate, separation, and prejudice.
Fear, and the feelings it generates, come from a mentality of me/us vs other/them; I am/we are better than; I/we need to protect myself/ourselves against. A mentality that has developed over centuries from a fear of not being safe and feeling unworthy; causing individuals and groups to seek for power and status in order to feel in control and ultimately feel safe, in addition to filling the void of feeling unworthy. Over centuries differences in race, gender, religion, culture, status, and boarders, has escalated the fear, increasing the need to protect and in turn increasing the violence, war, hate, anger and destruction.
“I am convinced that men hate each other because they fear each other. They fear each other because they don’t know each other, and they don’t know each other because they don’t communicate with each other, and they don’t communicate with each other because they are separated from each other” Martin Luther King Jr.
For the past four years fear, in the form of hate and violence, has come up more and more to the surface for everyone to see. We can no longer run and hide from it, we can not look the other way. This is a very important time for humanity to take a closer look not just at what is happening outside but more important what is happening inside. Fear causes the need to seek for power and control, a structure that needs to have something or someone to have power and control over. And at some point, the individual or group that feels powerless, will resort to hate and violence to gain control and power. It is a vicious cycle that can only be broken inside each and every one of us.
“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate…Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King Jr.
At the same time we stand up and speak up for the truth, and what we know in our hearts to be right, we must also seek to eliminate the fear in our own hearts and lives. The way to bring light into this darkness is through loving and accepting ourselves, trusting in ourselves (the truth of who we are) and our own guiding system (intuition). Once we learn to fully love and accept ourselves the feeling of safety starts to develop inside, since we are no longer fearful of being seen for who we are truly. Once we learn to fully love and accept ourselves then we feel safe to love and accept others as they are. Once we learn to fully love and accept ourselves then we feel safe to love everything and everyone around us. The shift to fully loving and accepting ourselves, also allows for us to feel our own power and therefore not giving permission to anyone to hurt us, not through force or violence but through love and acceptance and speaking our truth.
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of TRUTH and LOVE have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it — always.” Gandhi
Once we fully love and accept ourselves then the change naturally begins inside our home, in our community and transcends into society. Once we learn to fully love and accept ourselves then we realize that there is one planet, with one human race, with one basis for all religions which is love and respect for all, and therefore we remove the fear and in turn remove hate, prejudice, and separation. When we love, accept and respect ourselves as unique and precious individuals, yet connected to everyone and everything; Then we allow others to love, accept and respect themselves. And so the feeling of oneness starts to be nourished in everyone and everything.
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world — that is the myth of the atomic age — as in being able to remake ourselves.” Gandhi
So let’s remake ourselves, our homes, our communities and society. Let us bring light into darkness by replacing fear with love and breaking the barriers and boarders that separates, by teaching and practicing love, acceptance, respect for ourselves and others, as well as teaching and practicing oneness.
It has taken centuries for humanity to get to this point and I’m hopeful that it will not take centuries for us to realize that there is One Planet, One Human Race, One Love.
