Comments from Swift Deer
The world is in a crazy place. Everybody is in a constant state of need and fear. They have no space. People need to remember that we have space, if we will take it.
In the US, if you go into a city with a toy gun, you can get shot. In some countries every move you make is caught on a camera. There’s no space for normality, for normal living. There’s no breathing space.
Everyone is under so much pressure that there’s no room to do anything but shoot at each other—physically and emotionally. It’s ruining the Islamic world. Our own congress has stalemated governing in this country (the US). People don’t THINK. They feel but don’t examine their fears, the origin of them and the way out. They re-act rather than considering their actions. They live behind a barricade of fear and trust to entrenched and unexamined belief systems, trying to impose these onto others, with predictable results. More fear, even less space.
We all need to take a breathing space, which like the smell of a lotus or a rose, permeates every part of the being—taking care of every part, as it should be. Disintegrating fear, allowing our true beings to take over again.
How can we help? By practicing allowing other people their process, to be where they are, while allowing them space to breathe, reassess and possibly grow. Also by allowing space for Self. Start with at least 5 minutes a day to take space for yourself, and then gradually increase that. Realign your being into harmony and balance. This helps to align the space for everyone. And this helps us to be able to allow love into our hearts and to live from there.
Give people space to get themselves together, and take space for yourself.
