What Makes Us Strong?

In the past week or so, along with all the amazing things happening with the election, I’ve been thinking about some of your recent comments and my answers to them. I’m feeling that there is something more I need to say, and that is to address the issue of struggle.



And it seems I have a LOT to say about that! Let’s see where to start.

FIrst of all, I started reading a book I picked up on kind of a whim, called 2012 Awakening. I like this book for a lot of reasons, even though the authors seem from time to time to be more personally amazed about what they’ve discovered than to deliver a straightforward message (something I find distracting).

Here’s a quote from their book that leaped out at me this week:

“Tough playing fields produce strong warriors.”

When I read that, I immediately thought about all the comments here wondering “why does it have to be so hard?” This is one answer.

By the way, if you’d like to explore this book yourself, here’s the link:

Now, another thing I’ve been thinking about on the topic of struggle is: what makes us strong? And the best answer I know is that in order for muscles to grow (either physical or figurative) they must be exercised regularly. One needs a way to challenge each muscle to expand and increase in strength ~ and struggle is often the method that produces the fastest growth.

“Tough playing fields produce strong warriors.”

And no, “warriors” are not all about violence; the best of them are about NON-violence. And that would be Indigos. The peaceful warrior has no need for war, because they know better tools and can use them powerfully. Let us claim a truly strong position, with our truly strong voices: . “War is SO over!”

True strength comes from inner peace and confidence. And sometimes it takes struggle for us to know just how strong we really are.

Now that we humans seem to have taken a major leap forward in consciousness with the election, let’s look for worthy ways to stay strong. We need to be as fit as possible to build a new and better world. Yes, we need a rest period ~ we have expended enormous energy in our work. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been happily exhausted.

But there remains a lot of work to do here. Where shall we focus next? It’s time to plan carefully and keep living from the heart. And teach everyone you know how to do this.

Hmmm. Maybe THAT is what’s next. . .
