Divided We Fall
Searching For Truth: A Blog by Sherri Smith
The wounds are deep, the pain is intense and expressions of it are vast. The global pause brought on by this current virus continues to expose the weakened fabric that we thought held us together; personally, collectively and systemically.
I question my merit in remaining in a deep isolation from the world for these last 3 months. There is so much to do, to stand for, to protest against and to help with and yet I have remained.
I felt too weak to take on the pains of the world when I was feeling so much pain within. I searched for answers. I tried to find meaning. The world feels as though it is falling apart and yet I have remained. I have reached out to those in need here in the country I am stranded in, however its just a bandaid on the wound.
What I am recognizing is, that as the world battles on what is right, true, just, sustainable and respectful there is a battle within that I must first find peace with. I cannot operate from a place of clarity and truth until I release the layers of my own misguided beliefs. The longer I have remained here, the more the layers of my truth are being revealed. I feel I owe this to my community, be it global or local, to be the clearest version of myself.
Beneath it all I know that I am love. And you are love and the entire cosmos we exist in is a measurable frequency of that vibration. All these thoughts, emotions, stories, agendas, rules, divisions and systems have kept us neatly packed and compartmentalized into a lower version of ourselves. It creates the environment for disease to set in and for things to go rogue.
We are at a tipping point in our existence. Science has validated this and is calling it the 6th great extinction, with this one being unique in that it is manmade. Nature gifted us a great pause perhaps, but we fought it. We kept ourselves distracted from that internal battle with the external noise and a sense of busyness.
We have a choice, and this is not a solo project. In fact I firmly believe the only way we will truly heal that which is crying for healing is in unity. Division will continue to keep us weak, its the inflammation around the wound. We are collectively one powerhouse of human strength with the correct council to hear all voices. It can start with a village.
Begin. Take some time to truly work on that internal battle until you see the love that you are. In seeing this, you will also awaken to the love that each and every other being is beneath their stories and behaviours. That is the fabric that will heal us, collectively and individually. There is such deep freedom in liberation; the enslavement of the systems dissolve and the shackles of the mind release.
We are all wounded and in a reactive state, yet we are so much bigger than this. We gotta stop fighting each other and look at the cause of the divides. We need each other; it is time to drop the weapons, the labels and the division to collectively unite and challenge these systems that have been designed to separate and oppress. Use the fire within to ignite the passion for change. Our team is stacked with some brilliant minds and some incredible hearts; we have overwhelming odds to win when we truly unite for the common good of ALL.
