All of life is spent in relation to something else. The way my fingers are in relation to the keys of my keyboard express the letters that in relation to each other form words.

So everything is in relation to everything else such as my eyes and body are capable of perceiving light produced by the sun or other objects. If I was incapable of perceiving the light from the sun through vision and nutrient absorption, it would be as if the Sun did not exist.

When I talk about having everything we need in each moment, this is the sense I mean.
Now in every relationship, there is give and take an understanding between two parties that we are working together to make something bigger than ourselves.

This is true when we look moment by moment at our lives. I believe the issue that many of us have with life is that we are only of the mentality that we are supposed to take from it everything we can and as much as we can.

This mentality is something of a sickness, a fear of absolute lack that if I do not go out and get everything that I need on my own then I will never have enough.

In doing this we have caused a terrible imbalance in the Universe. So much taking and not enough giving.

We have forgotten that being in this relationship with the physical form of existence and all that it encompasses. We must be willing to give in return. In every situation, there is give and take.

Like having a good conversation with another person. A good conversation is not one where one person takes all of the air and time to themselves to speak and leaves nothing for the other person.

A good conversation is back and forth sharing of ideas and opinions to understand better. If only one is talking than only one is hearing and that means that only one person got what they needed and the other was stuck with what they got.

In every situation ask yourself, is there something that I can give to this moment, i.e energy, time, attention, love, understanding… etc. Because naturally, we receive.

Our whole physical being is one giant receiver, we couldn’t not receive if we tried, we were beautifully designed this way.

So in this way we are simply asked to see where we can give something back from the incredibly infinite amount that we are constantly given.

In doing this we enter into a symbiotic, loving relationship with all of creation and become more than we are. We also realize that we have more than we could ever need.

We can change the way the world works in this way, do not be afraid to take a moment if you are suffering and see where it is coming from, identify it and see if you are in a harmonious relationship with whatever it is at this moment.

If not, Why not? Can you change it? More importantly, do you want to change it? Or is the fear that you will be giving away from your stockpile that is meant only for you scaring you from this oneness with everything?

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
