Where would we be without rebellions and revolutions, right?! But… these days we have many rebels without a cause, people walking around carrying past traumas ready to unload their anger or grief on unsuspecting others who cross their paths.
This is why we are all called to lead by example in all areas of our lives, you know, what Gandhi said: “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” I’d like to propose that the rebellion most needed at this time is one against our own fears. Fears that come in the form of thoughts of lack, greed, anger, resentment, unforgiveness, unworthiness, and insert your personal type here. It’s a quiet rebellion armed with love, compassion, and forgiveness for ourselves for not knowing or doing better than we knew how, not believing in ourselves, or not being courageous.
For encouragement and inspiration I recommend reading a few of my favorite poems:
- Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
- The Guest House by Rumi
- Fear Is The Cheapest Room In The House by Hafiz
Oh, and you can also get yourself a copy of my interactive poetry book: Love Speaks: A Pocketful of Poems from Spirit, Meditations and a Journal Sprinkled With Timeless Words of Wisdom to Write Your Own Inspired Words
Mel’s Two Cents: Be your own guru. Lead yourself into a better place by cleaning up the clutter and baggage in your mind and emotions. As you free yourself, you begin to live the life your really want and you become an example for others to know they can do the same.
Until next time.
