It’s easy to fan the flames - try blowing on the embers.
Are you feeling stuck, and powerless? Going through the same routine – going to work, looking for a job, or maybe you are in a loveless, sexless marriage or relationship, but because this is the devil that you know and because of fear of the unknown – you go through the motions in your daily existence.
Perhaps you are angry with the economy and the political climate where nothing gets done because the law makers make it their job to do nothing, but to keep their jobs. Things are tough all over. But, if we were to realize that we are all in this together, and we have the courage to occupy our hearts, and souls, we could inspire and arouse our minds and spirit to rise above the present inertia and help mankind realize its manifested destiny of loving, and living with one another and evolving to be our higher selves.
Catch Fire! Fire cleanses, and purifies, and inspires and helps to transcend and destroy the mundane, and profane. It works on the mind and ego to annihilate deceptions and impure thoughts. It inspires creativity, new ways of thinking and seeing the world. It helps to reduce the illusions and delusions of the world to ash.
You can curse the darkness, but that is what the darkness wants. The darkness of the ego wants you to struggle and curse it, but never leave. It will tease you and tell you all things are possible, but not for you. It will whisper to you that you are not worthy, or that you don’t have what it takes, and that you should be grateful that you got as far as you have. It will do its best to make you feel guilty to even want or desire, and will siphon off your self esteem one negative thought at a time.
The way out of the dark can be a long arduous battle for your Soul, or it can be as easy as turning on the light of self awareness. It is difficult to be true to yourself, if you do not know who you are. Light the torch of self awareness by first slowing down, and spending time with and by and for yourself; unless you don’t like who you are. Who wants to spend time with someone they don’t like, I wouldn’t, I didn’t… until I forgave myself, and asked for forgiveness, guidance, and direction. But how can you not like what you do not know.
Unconditional love and compassion for one’s self is kindling for the light of self awareness. Be the heavenly spark that can ignite this kindling as we embrace the embers that lie deep in our soul that sustain us and give us warmth when the chill of uncertainty blows through our lives. Be a light unto the world and yourself, and have faith. Fire emanates Light, Light radiates Aether and Aether is the source of all there is. It is the fifth element – it is your Higher Self – it is Universal Intelligence. It is you it is God.
