Awaken..

One can only try, the reality is we are bound by the physics of life, language is more than just words, the physicality of the souls connection to another person has been dictated by new social norms… We have lost our way!

How is it we have forgotten that touch is a sense that brings warmth, to hug someone when they are lost in the depths of fear… I wonder if we’ve become socially numb?

How is it we walk past those less fortunate? Almost afraid to acknowledge their presence, just in case we have to take some kind of responsibility for them, but each one of these souls is someone’s family, was someone’s loved one.. A mother, brother, sister, father… A son or daughter… The truth is we are numb, void of the willingness to offer them a moment of our time… As I walked up-to the court today I saw the same lady I’d been giving change to in October, still sitting at the top of the escalator at the station… I stood for a moment considering my own journey… Despite the difficulties, judgment and vilification I’ve had, I am still reminded that compassion for others is the most important aspect of humanity… Care enough to give and pay forward…

To take a moment to consider that there are others who are worse off and in much more difficult or challenging situations. It’s cold in Melbourne, unseasonal weather, wet, only 10 degrees… I was left humbled again. More importantly I was given a spiritual message to awaken myself..

I am reminded of my own mums journey, the reality is society walks past this lady every day, yes it’s easy to offer her $20, but we have become numb, I stood watching people just stream past, not even acknowledging her presence… I am desperate not to be this… Not to be numb to the plight that others face… I have come to realise as I sat on the flight to Melbourne this morning feeling unsettled, I am here to effect Change…. I realised again today that my experiences with those who judge me have been a lesson in who they are… And not who I am… Because I know the pureness of my own soul…

For all of my mistakes, all of my failures, all of my moments of stupidity.. I am a decent soul… Why? Because today I realised I’m still fighting for others, still taking notice of those in need, still feeling and still making a difference… I am not numb…

I realised my motive is as pure as its always been… I am at peace with myself, knowing that tonight she will eat something warm, and I didn’t just walk past…. In my own moment of trauma, my choice was to offer a random act of kindness… To make a difference, no matter how small…

In that I realised I’m healing myself too..
