There comes a time in everyone’s life where the window of opportunity seems to have closed to them whether it be to age, unemployment, location or personal factors. All of these seemingly blocked passages in your life are but a construct of your mind. For example, when you suffer a job loss or if you feel you’re too old to do something new, it is only your mind and perspective that keeps you from improving the situation. Sometimes when a loss is suffered, as was explained in a previous post called Anchors of Illusion, it is for the best outcome from a higher perspective that you might not have access to at the time of its occurrence, and is therefore not truly a loss.
Do not let social constructs keep you from doing what you feel a passion to do within yourself. Many societies are very youth oriented and as people age, they feel as if they are becoming valued less by others while in other societies, older people are respected, valued and sought out often for wisdom and guidance. Rise above the views of the society you live in which may be quite limited and faulty in its thinking. See the value in yourself and in others because every single human has incredible value no matter their age, race, ethnicity, economic status, etc.
It would be lovely for us all to be kinder and more forgiving to ourselves. The more kind and loving we are toward ourselves, the kinder and more loving we can be toward others, which can become a healthy contagion! Many people think that they don’t influence each other but each person is like a beacon shining right into the collective consciousness of humanity. The brighter your light shines, the more light you are contributing to the collective of humanity! So shine brightly and do not let society’s limited point of view keep you from following your passions which in turn will increase the love and light within you. This love and light will become a lighthouse for others who need guidance and are feeling lost at this time. The way out of the darkness for everyone is toward the light. Follow your happiness. Follow your passions. Be the Light. Lead by example by simply being your loving self. Be the best lighthouse you can be!
