To gain clarity,
To know truth,
To trust self.
To share your voice.
To tap into the collective unconscious.
To know we are all one.
Together there is strength.
Trust the knowing of your soul.
Allow healing of your heart.
Feel the love for all living beings.
One being is not less than another or more than another.
Blood is blood.
Skin is skin, it bleeds the same when cut.
Feelings are feelings.
Emotions are emotions.
Pain is pain
This is common sense.
Where has common sense gone?
It has gone by the way of your fear.
Fear has hijacked our judgements.
Fear has abducted the truth that lies within.
Fear tells us lies and forces us to believe the lies.
Fear keeps us small, stuck, complacent.
It has us act out against another and
fear has us act out against the self.
Fear stops you in your tracks and you become one with no senses.
You become the fear
We must call fear out.
We must not stand still and watch others act out in fear
Above all else we must honor the other.
We must honor that the one we see, as the other is really also us.
The one you fear is you.
