“Caring is giving love and attention to people and things that matter to you. When you care about people, you help them. You do a careful job, giving your very best effort. You treat people and things gently and respectfully. Caring makes the world a safer place.”
I remember being in a challenging time of my life, I was so frustrated with everything. My relationships were troubled and I remember thinking to myself “I don’t care”. What was interesting about that for me in hind-site was that all of the choices I made about how I acted and responded was completely the opposite of how I wanted to show up in the world. In fact, I was out integrity on so many levels. That thought “I don’t care” spiraled completely out of control and nothing good came out of it.
Sometimes its challenging to give love and attention to people and things when it seems as though circumstances are out of our control, or when they are not acting right or treating us the way we deserve to be treated…
What I know for me is that my responsibility is to stay anchored in the Truth – and the truth is, is that there is only Love and Fear. I have a choice about where I’m going to operate from, even in the face of challenge.
“My ego mind- my own self-hatred masquerading as self love would point me always in the direction of fear, luring me toward the blaming thought, the attack or defense, the perception of guilt in myself or others. Its goal is my suffering or the hell of my own illusion” and “The question I want to ask myself is, am I aligned with the will of the universe” From Marianne Williamson
So my intention is to be anchored in a Knowing and in Truth- to Care so that I don’t get caught up in the trappings of lower level thinking- because I know that those thought lead my actions and become the results of my life.
Today I give love to all of the things that matter to me. I give my best and I stay anchored and grounded knowing that love is the elixir that heals all things. I am aligned with my vision and the highest truth for my life.
