What if I told you that an era of love is coming? What if I told you there is a new resistance on its way? What if I told you that love is taking over? Can you see it? Can you feel it? I know it seems questionable, but it is coming. I can feel it starting to swell up. Every day it's growing.
If you take the time to look past the noise and distractions, you'll see it. There are so many simple acts of compassion happening that you wouldn't miss them if you looked. Each and every one of them, in some small way, is building up the resistance, creating a movement, and that movement is calling us all to act.
We are tired of all the hate being spewed. We are tired hating others and most of all we are tired of hating ourselves for being drawn into this divisive vitriol. We are starting to tell ourselves, this isn't how it should be, this is no way to live, this is not our nature. We gain nothing by diminishing others, in fact, we diminish ourselves every time we do it.
Hate is not the answer, love is. I'm not just speaking of the love we have for our family, friends, and the people around us, I'm talking about love for all, even for the least among us, even for those we disagree with, love is the answer.
There is a new movement around us, a movement of human responsibility, not just for ourselves but for all. We can never truly heal until we stop putting the blame on others. We can only move forward by taking responsibility for ourselves and by offering all of those we blamed in the past our love and compassion.
In our lifetime, we have seen the human capacity to hurt others show itself time and time again. But, for every terrorist who blows up a market there are hundreds who show up to help the wounded. For every gunman who shoots up a school, there are thousands who come forward to offer love. For every person who wants to ban a religion, a race, or a way of life, there are millions willing to stand up and say no.
If we listen, we will hear it. If we look, we will see it. Instead of following the script being fed to us that mankind is evil, that our neighbor is going to rob us, or that the guy who looks different from us is going to blow us up, we need to open our eyes and see there are more good people around us than bad. We are being forced to hear the voice of bigotry, hate, and division, but all around us are voices of kindness, compassion, and love. We just have to change the channel so that we can hear.
By focusing, you will see the new era of love and compassion in front of you. By focusing, you'll catch a glimpse of unfathomable kindness being put out in this sea of despair. When you take the time to look, you'll see that there is a love so powerful and so healing that you will be lead to hope. You will have no choice but to see and to believe that WE ARE LOVE.
Beneath all the anger, frustration, judgment, and pain WE ARE LOVE. We have to remember though that love isn't always easy, in fact it's sometimes messy. Love can be cruel and painful, it can be incredibly frustrating, but love is worth fighting for. Like anything worth having, love takes effort, it takes focus, and it takes persistence. It's easy to dismiss it, but it's not going away, because our nature calls us home to love. Because at our core WE ARE LOVE!
We need to pay attention to the good. We must stop giving a platform to the cruel and stop making the worst of us famous. If we turn our attention to the teachers, the healers, the advocates, and the protectors we will see the true spirit of humanity. It's not reflected in the loudest politician or the most outspoken celebrity, it's in the everyday people, like us. Because like us, WE ARE LOVE !
Because we are love, we will resist. The world needs our resistance now more than ever. The people in our lives need to be awakened. The least among us need our hope. The community we live in needs our everyday acts of courage. WE ARE LOVE and they need that love now more than ever before.
A new era of love is coming, it's growing. The choice is yours, you can either join in and ride this wave of love or it will crush you. You can either stand and fight evil or be consumed by it, because WE ARE LOVE and we are taking over.
It's coming...are you ready? Look inside and you'll see it, there is love waiting to be unleashed. The resistance is growing.
Are you ready ?
