keep calm and save the earth

It’s really not that hard you know, to change the world.

It is, to understand that you can’t really change the world. It’s a bit ambitious, don’t you think? I mean, the Earth is 40,075 kilometres around, after all. That’d be a heck of a lot of Ubers.

The world you can change isn’t actually THE world, it’s YOUR world. THE world, the 40,075 kilometre world, is probably something you may know little about. Or, maybe you know a lot. YOUR world, on the other hand, is the world you know everything about. It’s the life you live every day.

If you’d ever aspired to change the world, I’d have to ask, “where would you begin?” Four minutes in front of the television or a social media feed would give you enough fodder to potentially resign to failure before even starting. It’s just too much; too much to absorb, to much to digest, too much we don’t know about. It’s just too much from head to toe. But, your world; your world will always be whatever the amount is that you can handle at the time.

There will be times when a missing sock will make you feel like you can’t win at anything. And, there will times when you’ll feel as though you could climb Mount Everest in flip flops and Bermuda shorts. With a Volkswagen on your back. Either way, VW or not, it is your world to change.

I think, for most of us, we are able to say that there are things we can change; that there are things we should change. But, what to change? It is a relative word, change. What might be such for one person won’t be for another.

Your Heart.

We talk about Heart here a lot; there’s a reason for it. Your Heart isn’t wrong. Like, really, truly, what’s in your Heart isn’t wrong. It can’t be wrong. We can be wrong, but our Heart can’t. And so, how do we differentiate between the two? By forming a bond with your Heart; a relationship.

Seem like it doesn’t make that much sense, right? I mean, I get it, it’s inside of your body. Shouldn’t you inherently have a bond with it? It makes everything work. Without it, you’d be in the morgue. So, doesn’t that mean you have a bond with it? No. A relationship with your Heart doesn’t happen out of default. It’s not simply a given based upon a physical connection and presence. I couldn’t imagine those that do terrible acts against fellow man, are damaging in their daily lives or are simply just inconsiderate could have a meaningful relationship with their Heart? It couldn’t tie together. It’s not that any of those people are bad, it’s just that they haven’t learned to communicate with what’s really inside.

So, how do you do it? How do you cultivate that relationship? You listen. You feel. You recognize what your Heart really resonates with, and you silence the noise. You speak with your Heart. It’s not just a pump for your body; it’s your mind, your soul, your guide.

No one can tell you what to change. You have to tell you. You have to build that relationship with your guide, your Heart, to feel what it is that will fill you. Your Heart is always there for you. It wants to be there for you. It is meant to be there for you.

Don’t change the world, just change your world.

Be Love.




going up.

Your Heart can only go higher.

For all of us, the movement toward who we really are is founded in experience. Every part of our growth and evolution is established upon what we encounter in our lives. The things we navigate through, whether they be “positive” or “negative” only act to broaden us, not narrow who are. And, who we are, all of us, is Love.

My Heart doesn’t allow me to believe any of us were put here to be anything but Love. That being said, I can believe that we all don’t unlock the Love within ourselves. The experiences we have, the emotions we feel, the willingness to recognize and bring it from the inside to the outside, is what moves us to that higher place of evolution; to that higher place of Love.

Your Heart is always evolving; it’s always taking in, processing and giving out Love. Bigger and bigger Love, like a snowball rolling down a hill. The challenge is that it’s a matter of if your physical self wants to take what’s on the inside and bring it to the outside. It’s like a great song on the radio; that song is going to play whether or not you have the radio turned on or tuned in or are even listening. If it’s off, you’ll get nothing. But, if you choose to turn that music on, if you choose to hear what it is, it will be all around you.

Real Love, the kind you know is so true and so authentic in your Heart, can only move you up. And, you will know what kind of Love that is when it comes into your life and you’re tuned in. You may not be able to put it into words, or it may be something that feels new; but it’s not. It’s what’s always been there. You were just never at that spot or had that experience that helped you to unlock it until now. And, how will you know when you’ve unlocked it? It will fill your Heart; it will feel like it’s impossible to not have it there.

You can only go higher. The Love in your Heart doesn’t have the ability to regress. It doesn’t work like that; it’s not in the business of going backwards. A comparison I can draw to is what I’ve experienced with my journey into consciousness and awareness and the Universe; the more I bring it into my life, the more I broaden myself, the fuller I become. And, I can’t go back. I’m not supposed to go back.

It is this same evolution as what I’ve experienced with the Love that has been brought into my life. For me, it is a Love that I want to share. It is a Love that makes me realize that, although I am my Universe and my Universe is me, it is such a bigger Universe to have a beautiful person and a family to share it with. This won’t be the same for everyone. But, that’s what it is for me. It is real Love because I know it is a part of the better version of who I am. It is the person the Universe is helping me to be. It is the person that I’m helping me to be.

Be Love.
