Did you include you or did the world condition you to negotiate yourself out of the value exchange? Didn’t the world have enough love and opportunity to pass on to you? Did you buy the lies that you have to work harder for it and not to expect much in return?
Look closely at your world and you will begin to clear the foggy lies as the truth is revealed; this is your world as much as anyone else’s. Love is a choice and love is abundant. You are capable of achieving nothing or everything that is meaningful. The freedom to choose exists, but the belief in your freedom – can you commit to that?
We can go for a lifetime without committing to our freedom. To be stubborn for what matters can turn the rusted wheel. Let it grind and squeal because soon enough the bearings will allow you to glide that way.
I know the feeling of heaviness and doubt. I know what its like to believe in the philosophy and have a body anchored in the ugly reality of disconnection. Those moments are where your character is sculpted. Chisel the nonsense out of your mind and your environment. The love has always been there, we just need to remove the illusions to reveal it.
Become the value by slowing down and paying particular attention to the pain and what causes it. From there, your humility, patience and instinct will begin to take care of the rest.
