Nurt Thursday – Who’s Your Tribe?
I was so happy to see this weeks Nurture Thursday…My Gran has always taught me that the people we truly “click with” are our “tribe”.
When we talk about “tribe” in the more emotional and spiritual type. We’re not talking about, like the Maasai tribes or tribes like that. We are talking about people we click with those vs those people we just don’t. When you meet someone and you just click or don’t click with. Those people that are just not part of your tribe. The ones you cannot connect with on any level vs the ones that you do. Even when you don’t really understand why one way or another.
If you have been doing what these people have been doing and you STILL have “God”, Peace or Love in your various “Bios” Please delete your accounts now!
“The man who received death threats for taking his wive’s surname”
You are NOT a follower of God or anything that is supposed to be peace and love. Now I am not a religious person, I’m more of a spiritual person. I do not believe for one moment that God’s thing is to send death threats and threaten infertility on a couple because a man wants to take his wives last name.
The biggest problem I have with some religious people (not all) is that they interpret and use the wording of the various Bible’s to their own meanings. I wish I could find the tweet. Using “All I have to do is ask God for Forgiveness when they die” For the “okay” on their horrible behaviour…I found this brilliant Tweet about how Jesus talked about Churches and used rocks as an example to make strong foundations from. Some people took this literally and built Churches…But what if that’s not what it means? From a more spiritual point of view this person explained (and I am going to keep looking for it!) Jesus was coming from a more “spiritual” point of view. The rock is a strong foundation, it’s very hard if not impossible to move stone, especially when you have a group of it together. He wasn’t talking about building Churches, he was talking a spiritual foundation. The heart of what a religion should be, the foundation from your hearts. Not a literal building…and have to agree with her!
Many people who are this nasty, tend to go to Churches on Sunday, to “cleanse” them of their Sins. How about not going to a building to cleanse themselves, how about they just be a nice person instead?
I just felt like this was an appropriate speech to post, with all the misery and family coming together for various different reasons over a holiday like Thanksgiving. Family coming together vs The Native Americans being wiped out by the invaders.
Sometimes I think I just think differently from other people, kind of like I was born in the wrong era, or the wrong “reality”. Honestly it hurts my spirit, and I use term since I was called a racist for not agreeing that my spirit is less spirtual than some others. “White people sucked out all the spirit”…That is not even how spirit works. I said to this individual though “That’s your Ego talking, NOT your Spirit”… That was definietly a trigger for me. I work with Spirit a lot, I do Reiki, Tarot … Witch craft some may call it! You leave my spirit alone, I’ll leave yours alone.
It was annoying because I was saying that it’s even more important to stand for matters like BLM, to start really educating ourselves on our histories. Stand with Standing Rock, for example. Just recently I found out that Gandhi had slept with younger girls to “test himself”, who knows for sure!…Which I think he ‘passed’ but that clearly is not the issue. How can someone ever learn if they…well…never learn? If they and you are never listened too? Nothing moves forward, nothing progresses. We get stuck in the same fight, the same circles. Sometimes I do few a lot of the fights as frivolous, especially on Instagram, and they never get anywhere. Which information is even correct? So now I don’t argue on Instagram or Facebook anymore.
The reason I’m posting this video and a link to the Speech in written form though? This video soothes my mind, it is exactly what I am trying to say. Martin Luther King is a hero of mine…I feel like we need more people/leaders/great minds like Martin Luther King. He believed we should ALL work together. We ALL need each other. I still, and probably will always, think his assassination is one of the greatest tragedies of our time. It’s nice to know someone out there existed as I think as well.
I am a dreamer, I know that, I can be extremely naive. Possibly even too idealistic. If you could have any dream you wanted to come true though, what would it be?
I am not a religious person, I think people would call me more of a “Spiritual” type person. However there is one religion that does intirgue me a lot and that is Buddhism. I love Dalai Lama and he just seems so happy all the time, and he recently turned 80 years old. I want what he’s having.
The above post is a link to just some of the wisdom of the Buddhist. Number 6 is probably one of the most important (well I think so) just because there is so much negativity out there. Number 4 is an interesting lesson as well, something to definitely think about.
I just also want to stress that I don’t follow a particular religion, I don’t like the concept of being put into a box, one thing that my friends and family are constantly saying is that I am definitely an individual. I like the freedom to follow whoever I think is cool and awesome.
In the past I have Blogged a couple of posts regarding a Facebook page called 1000 Voices for Compassion and on the 20th of each month there is a challenge and people write Blog topic based on the topic for that month. In the month of the May the topics “Connection” including reconnection and reconciliation.
So I will literally just write down whatever came to mind when I thought of the word “Connection”.
Connection Prompts For our May Link-up
I think that is a really interesting topic because I find that as a general society rule we are less connected than ever before. Yet we have all these tools to help us communicate well and efficiently and yet as I have said before we have more of a society that wants to be “right” instead of discussing and talking with one another. You watch people (especially with Twitter) who bully and send death threats to people that they don’t even know. When did this become okay? Why has this become such a problem? How can someone be so disconnected that threatening and telling people that should “go and kill” themselves, became acceptable?
I have watched many “fights” on Facebook. You have many people who will literally write “who cares”. How poignant is that?! Clearly not them (that is a whole other topic though on people who want to write “who cares” and “this isn’t news” instead of scrolling past the topic). I have asked people on Facebook directly why they felt the need to write that statement, why didn’t they just scroll past and get on with their day. Why do they think what they like is so much more and better than other? Yet, when people ask them, they get really upset?
Have we lost the connection with what is really important, how can we get it back, whose to blame, is there one area to blame or is it just everything these days? Have we lost the connection with the earth, the planet, our basic simple ways. Have we become to diverse to be able to really handle and accept the differences in others? Are we not ready to CONNECT with the other different souls on this planet? Is it too much for us to handle right now.
I believe that it is time to reconnect with and within ourselves. Go back to the basics and take a long look at what we are doing and what kind of legacy and story do we want to leave behind. I believe that we need to reconnecting with ourselves every know and then, to take a hard look at ourselves and asked ourselves “What is important to us”. Do these people really want to leave the story behind of them threatening and telling people to die behind the cowardice of a screen?
Take that walk back in a nature, kick up the leaves during autumn. Mediate…Listen to what our souls are telling us to do, telling us the path that we should take. Shut out the world of the technology. and connect with our spirits again. I think that we need to reconnect within ourselves again.
George Harrison! What a better way to start a Monday then listening to the beautiful, creative and intelligent music of George Harrison…Apparently (according to the internet anyway) this week is “George Harrison” Tribute week.
George was my favourite Beatles and I always loved his songs the best, even when I didn’t realise he was the one who wrote them! George was definitely underrated as a song writer in the Beatles. One of my favourite songs that he wrote was “Here Comes the Sun” and I cannot even tell you how many time I have listened to that song after a huge disappointment and it makes me feel so much better. George Harrison was such a sweet human being and he worked with so many charities…Please check out George Harrison’s Official Website…
