He left behind songs for us, he left behind his voice. But we’ll never hear it grow or change beyond this point.
He spent so much of his suffering trying to ease the pain of others in any way he can, I know he has done enough.
But I’ll still miss his light, his voice and his music.
Part of me wants to say, with shining tears and unshakeable resolution in my eyes that world, you have taken the last of us from us. Your broken, toxic structures have taken the last of us, NO MORE.
But I know, we will still continue to lose more, and not for the lack of trying.
So, the truth is, we can’t save everyone.
How do I embrace this truth with love and move forward with it?
I’m digressing though. I wanted to write this post to remind myself, just how not-okay it is to let this current toxic model continue and perpetuate. We think they’re all small things, social media addiction, profit-mindset etc. These small things banded together to create a slow toxin that’s killed so many beautiful souls.
Those of us who have survived? We are not strong or special, we are lucky. We managed to find sanctuary. Those that have left us weren’t weak, they fought till their last breath. And still they left us with the tools to save others.
The current model is broken, it’s unsustainable, it breaks people, it takes wonderful beings and souls who bring so much life and light to this world. It HAS to go.
I love this world. The world isn’t broken. The current model is. The current value model, the current model of life is.
You know what’s the good news?
WE built this model, we made it, we created it. Which means WE can change it.
I’m not sure if we will adapt a friendlier model within this lifetime, but I sure as hell am going to make sure an alternative is in place and save as many fellow empaths as I can and help support and nurture them into full maturity.
We’re stronger when we are together. Our collective light shows people that it DOESN’T have to be a zero-sum game. It shows that mutual flourishing is the way it’s supposed to be.
I harbour no desire or addiction to cynicism.
As an author once said, it’s easy to be pessimistic. I refuse to take the easy way out. Cynicism is the easy way out.
The current state is just that, merely the state. It’s inevitable because the conditions are conducive for such a state. There’s nothing to be cynical about with such logical inevitability. You change the conditions.
You SHOW people, through experience, a different way, a better way.
Find what you love, and create conditions for that to happen.
I understand why our world is this way, and no, vast majority of the world is still surviving reasonably well under the system. It’s just the empaths who are surviving.
But I love a world full of love and flourishing, a world full of thriving empaths.
So I’m going to do my best to do just that, create conditions for a world of thriving empaths.
I’m not trying to change a world, but I think a world full of thriving empaths will change itself for the better.
Be a lover not a fighter?
The strongest of warriors are those who fight for love.
