“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” (Begging Anne Frank’s pardon)

Action Plan:

While I generally believe this, I have to tell you that there are times when saying this tastes like metal in my mouth. Some days I am completely fed up with humanity. And, as it spirals, it eventually taints the way I see absolutely everything!

But, did you know that there are some people who believe that our souls come into this world already knowing what we need to do; with a contract that says, “in this life, I will (fill in the blank).” For instance, even in the case of Hitler, they believe that his soul plan was to commit the atrocities he did. And the people who died under his brutal reign, also agreed to the plan.

I don’t know if I swallow this theory, but I do know that when I think of it, I feel some peace; especially in the case of the really heinous shit that goes down. I mean, what if it was true that we all agreed to everything (even the shit) ahead of time? It gives some meaning to the otherwise meaningless sorrow, doesn’t it?

I’m not asking you to change your beliefs here, but today, just imagine that something like this is true. Imagine that there is some bigger reason for whatever shit that’s going down. Imagine that it’s part of a bigger plan … that it all needs to happen in the interest of your eventual enlightenment or our global enlightenment.

Give it a try. Even if it helps for just one moment, that’s one moment of peace you didn’t have a minute ago. And, if it doesn’t help, know that I’m sending you some loving and healing energy to get you through this… And you will get through this.
