You know, i’ve seen a lot of stuff out there from the Spiritual guru’s of tomorrow which seem to push a sort of.. “do it yourself” mentality… let me provide some examples to demonstrate what i’m talking about.
“Nobody is responsible for how you feel, once you know this – you take back all your power.”
“Self love is the root from which all positive creations grow.”
“Whenever you allow someone else to give you value, you lose confidence.”
Now, maybe i’m interpreting it wrong, but as I write this I have a dear friend sitting next to me, helping me out, and providing some powerful loving support. It is immeasurably valuable, and without it, I wouldn’t be writing this blog in the first place.
I’m also not sure that i’m losing confidence because of it… if anything, i’m gaining it.
(In response to the other 2 quotes) – I think we are all responsible for how all of us feel. You can’t deny that if i push you into the dirt, spit on you and call you an asshole, you’re probably not going to feel very good about it… Am I right?
Of course, you play a large role in how you feel, and so do I! If anything, that’s incentive to treat each other well.
I think at the core of what i’m trying to share is this message that we can all do it together, and in fact, in coming together with people we love, we can create powerful things. It is in fact a requirement for the creation of new things.
Don’t believe me? Try creating a baby with only one person.
When we create walls and seperation between each other saying “I have my path and you have yours”, it limits the possibilities of what we can truly have together. Think about Frodo and Sam. Frodo tried to create a separation between them at the end of Fellowship, but Sam refused him, and made sure he saw the journey through to the end!
And this whole “Self Love” thing… how does it work anyways? Love is something that happens in the connection between you and someone or something, it’s a vesica pisces by default, it has to be.
The only thing that even comes close in my mind to what “self-love” could look like in physical manifestation, is masturbation…. AND YET, when you’re doing it, are you only thinking of yourself?
LOL, as I wrote that, we came up with a joke “The Jordan Blog, rated M for Masturbation”. HAAHAHAHAHAHA XD
Look, you don’t have to do it by yourself. It’s okay to keep a creation safe by maintaining who is a part of it, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it all alone.
That’s the only way we’re really going to change the world. We have enough people trying to do it themselves. It’s time for all of us to try doing it together, I think you’ll agree based on the results, that it’s the only real way to live 🙂
Everyone gets everything they want.
There’s nothing like holding hands with someone you love, someone who loves you…
It’s a feeling that I couldn’t replicate with a thousand years of holding my own hand.
We are One
