If you want to believe in Antifa, QAnon, military coup, alien DNA—go ahead, but check in with what it is doing to your life
If you’re attracted to the theories emerging on the edges of our society, reading, watching and studying them, you will live in that world you have chosen.
Your mind will behave according to your beliefs in these ideas. There is stress inherit in most of these. Whatever choices and information you consume with belief becomes your reality. No one can control your mind but you.
If you want to believe in Antifa, QAnon, military coup, alien DNA—go ahead, but check in with what it is doing to your life. Once you begin entertaining a story like the COVID vaccine will hurt you, you are stepping into and reinforcing a scary, stress inducing state.
I recommend following the path that gives you optimal wellbeing; the choice of love, compassion, forgiveness and peace.
I’m sharing this below from a Facebook post, I have no idea who wrote it, but it’s so good, I’m adding it here.
“Sometimes I just want it to stop. Talk of Covid, protests, looting, brutality; I lose my way, becoming convinced that this “new normal” is real life.
But then, I meet this 87-year-old man who talked of living through polio, diphtheria, Vietnam, protests, and yet, is still enchanted with life. He seemed surprised when I said that these times must be especially challenging for him. “No,” he said slowly looking me straight in the eyes, “I learned a long time ago to not see the world through the printed headlines. I see the world through the people that surround me. I see the world with the realization that we love big.
Therefore, I just choose to write my own headlines. “Husband loves wife today.” “Family drops everything to come to Grandma’s bedside.” He patted my hand, “Old man makes new friend.”
His words collide with my worries, freeing them from the tether I had been holding tight. They float away. I am left with a renewed spirit. My headline now reads, “Woman overwhelmed by the spirit of kindness and the reminder that our capacity to love is never-ending.””
