We live in a world constantly screaming me, me, me. Forcing our hands in the competitive air, we demand to be seen. We demand to be heard. We demand to be noticed. We demand.
The air is noisy – filled with the roaring hum of egos that refuse to be silent. They assert their souls across our boundaries line making us doubt our own sanity and purpose.
A quiet must come.
A stillness must reign.
Not everything is important, and yet we have made everything of importance. Voices here, there and every where are shouting – clamoring for first place. Who’s listening?
We are not as important as we thought we were. Perhaps clarity is on order. A kick-in-the-gut of the real reality on what truly matters. It’s not about the followers or getting more numbers of being seen just to be seen just to earn more money. The constant hustle soon gives way to the breach – the crumbling of it all (our very personhood). At some point it all breaks down and we are forced to reckon with ourselves. How long have we neglected our inner being?
It’s not about me. It was never about me. It’s not about you. It was never about you. I know that may “hurt” your ego, but it’s the reality. And if I keep forcing my voice to be heard then yes my view is skewed and my vision too small.
Let’s change all that.
You know how you can change the game?
Be quiet. Hear the story of the other soul standing before you. Let them speak. Allow their life to just “be” even if that beingness grates on the hardness of your heart. Let’s come alongside others. Let’s allow the strands of our lives to build a common bond that carries us higher and deeper.
Where are you standing today? Do you need an ear, a shoulder, or an embrace? Perhaps today is the day you change all that by just being that for someone else.
I’d love to hear your stories. Let’s connect and share how we can reconnect with our fellow humanity.
