We need to learn to let go. We hold onto things way too long that needs to be released. I decided recently I need to start judging. Yep. You heard right. Judge.
After carefully thinking through this, I am judging it all. How you taste inside me? What drew me to you? Where this will take me? It is true good or bad and now I am OK with judging. Watch out. I may prematurely put you to the test.
Are you creeped out? Feels good, doesn’t it? I was just talking about food, but here many will miss that. We do not notice because we do not finish what we were reading. Lets try again with something more important.
The voices in my head try to stop me. The voices even tell me to go for it. Quite the opposite, to say the least. This is so wrong isn’t it? Yet there it is laid out for all to see. We are a walking metaphor. All along thinking no one will figure it out.
There is no easy out. This life leads to only one end. The end.
I looked up from my screen from writing and all I see is you. You are in the corner. An hour later, there you are again on the bus. Pausing at a red light, I see you yet again. Yep. I see you scrolling up and down on your smart phone stopped at the grocery check out. The faces have changed, but the stares into the phones have not.
What all are we doing? Are we mesmerized by the next move in the political news? Is it the outrage we feel when we read about a gutted budget plan for a need? Where does it end?
It does not. Until you end the bleeding in your own life. Our addiction about others’ has no limit. We must stop the bleeding and turn to challenging ourselves with one question. Did you do everything you could to stop the hurt or new challenges? Only you know the list you must work on. If given the choice, we do not want the hard lessons life has brought our way, but many times we have no choice. The clues are to opening ourselves to become teachable. This is not only for ourselves, but for those around us that we love.
