Our arms hold the capacity for all expressions.  They can embrace and they can strike, they can heal and they can kill.  It is all a choice what we allow to flow through them from our hearts.  Since our arms are an extension of our heart and our heart energy; wisdom flows out into the world through our arms.

Do you notice how the use of the work “and” versus the word “or” changes the energy and meaning of the statements above?  What if I had written our arms could embrace <or> they can strike; heal <or> kill.  The use of or implies an either or choice, as if only one can happen.  While the use of and signifies that both can happen, that we are capable of both and it is our choice as to which one manifests.  Still a choice, but one offers wholeness and the other offers polarity.  When we live in wholeness—fully accepting that we hold it all, we flow through our lives and allow what is within to flow out, we are balanced.  When we are polar, conflicting thoughts and ideas cannot peacefully co-exist within us, there is dissonance and we are at war with ourselves.  When we hold onto one position fiercely—whatever that is, it can be love, light and peace or hate, fear and war, that position must be balanced somewhere in this world.  In denying our shadow aspect and focusing only on peace for example, there must then be another entity outside of ourselves who holds the polar opposite view so life is balanced.  So if you have a community of people who rally for peace and all of you are in denial of your darker aspect—meaning your ability to wage war—this inner war will manifest outside of you to see as an equal number of people who are warring.  The solution is not to yell “peace!” louder.  The solution is to look deeply into your heart and acknowledge that you <a part of you> are capable of violence.  We all are, it’s ok.  It only has devastating power when we stand in denial of it.  From this perspective the most loving, peaceful act any one of us can do is to stand up and admit that we are violent, we are fearful, we hate, we tear down, we destroy, we kill, we rape, we pillage.  We are what we hate.  How will the world balance that?  The warmongers will rise and call for peace.  They will weep and drop to their knees, their hearts bursting with love for humanity.  Monsanto will cry tears of joy planting dandelions and heirloom seeds.

If we each individually live balanced whole truth filled lives, the reflection we see in the world around us will be balanced as well.

    Good one. Inspires me to a quick poem:

    Can’t stand people always preaching
    even though they think they’re teaching
    they aren’t reaching
    anyone, but just beseeching
    leeching light
    to make them right

    i think they shoulda
    read the Tao
    or done the I-Ching
