I’m often pitched by online sites, such as this amazing one that you’re reading now, for articles about personal growth, discovery, healing and the like and this week I’m struggling, because we (you, me and the world) aren’t going to do anything good with ourselves until we learn to love instead of hate.

The kind of love we need, the kind that’s going to possibly make a tiny dent in the hate-filled happenings of late is that of a fierce kind. Stronger than the nonsense it’s trying to obliterate, by a lot. Only one thing stands in it’s way; fear. Since we the people are the vehicle by which warrior love is spread across the land, we actually have to move through the fear and get to taking the love kind of action that’s going to make a difference.
I loved the a post I saw recently. It was about turning off your TV and going to love someone. In other words don’t let technology or your laziness stop you. Yes. That right there, can’t we do that? I think we can. Some people will need some help doing that loving. The ones who get it can help the ones who don’t get it; who have so much pain they don’t see a choice but to hate.
That kind of healing is required. It’s necessary. And it’s oh so difficult. Doing the healing and doing the loving is going to take everyone. Everyone who’s capable of getting over their fear and talking about it, writing about it, helping others to do it and creating something new – it’s going to take a huge amount of courage and some warrior love.
It will also take believing it’s possible.
I’ve been hanging with someone who expects the worst so that she’s not disappointed or hurt. I get it. Thinking positive will only get you burned, is the way she thinks. She has an upbringing that’s taught her how to be. But I learned differently, and believe that it’s this default negative thinking that creates our reality. We better get thinking differently.
How can we do that when we’re presented with tragedy after tragedy? Aren’t we being given proof that my friend’s way of thinking is the way to go? I’m not sure, but what I do know is while I’m sitting around thinking, in-between these life moments and with some sort of purpose for happiness, it doesn’t help me to think negatively. It just hurts or in the least, numbs me up and keeps me afraid.
In between the tragedies I choose love, hope, courage and possibility. During the tragedies I try to choose love, hope, courage and possibility. Afterward I continue to choose love, hope, courage and possibility. Warrior love is about that mindset.
Choosing love even though so many people pick hate isn’t easy. Choosing love even though so many people are afraid and stay quiet isn’t easy. Choosing love, at all, isn’t easy. But it sure feels better than hate. And there’s no doubt it’s the choice if you’re interested in a world with more love in it.
More love. More awareness. Every person on the planet, because they were born, deserves to feel love. Every person on the planet, because they were born, IS love. More love, more healing, more awareness, more helping, more kindness, more oneness, more understanding, more compassion….please, more Warrior Love.
