Not many understand the word love. The very word itself would cause people to shiver in place. It is
still confused with lust. There was a time, I didn't understand it, in fact i hated it. All it had done was bring me nothing but despair.I watched
how saying it to others caused me to lose friendships. A simple act of kindness would have people turn their backs on me and this brought intense
fear. Fear of ending up alone.
So I made a choice, to accommodate others at my expense. This happened many times after being called selfish. I began to try and please everyone,
developing altered egos and pretending to be something I was not. I became an a** H*** because people began looking up to me for my ruthlessness. And
this empowered my ego, but it slowly consumed my heart to the point where I was cold.
I hurt others for the sake of cheap laughter. I disregarded people's feelings just so I could blend in with the crowd. I became divided in slices,
trying to please everyone while sacrificing myself. I figured, as long as I wasn't alone, it would be worth it.
But I was wrong. The result of my actions caused me to lose myself even more, and i had ost my way back. I didn't know who I was anymore. The result
of ego and alter ego's became my inner demons. And it took quite awhile to find myself again underneath all the garbage that was piled up.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where true love is feared and misunderstood. The world of lust tries desperately not to allow love to flourish. It
portrays love as fear, as the black-sheep.Through fear comes insecurities, lack of balance and loss of faith.
It is sad, when one says the words "I love you" to spark up fear into the heart of another person. Or when someone does an act of kindness, they are
all of a sudden judged for it and pushed aside.
This is the message I bring to you, and this is why I expect people who preach about love
to be compassionate, understanding and patient. Change starts with your actions, not your preaching. Show the person and the world you care, no matter
how bad, dark they may appear to be. Don't reject them, that makes them feel worse. It makes them feel UNLOVED. It makes them feel rejected.
I am not saying this to insult anyone, im simply stating a reality. It is hypocritical to preach about unity when you yourself reject others. Unity
is about acceptance of the whole. NOT rejection.
When all is said and done, that person you rejected, sooner or later will blossom, and reveal what is hidden
behind the dark veil. We are all one, right?, then see others as YOU, treat others as you would like to be treated.
This is the only way to change the world. It starts with you.
And it starts by losing fear
