We have come of age

Today is the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st century

It’s time for change, time to step into our power and to Be the person we were always meant to be.

Our relationship with ‘Daddy’ Government and ‘Mummy’ healthcare system needs to change too, from one of coercive control to one of loving guidance and support, if it is to survive at all.

We are 21 and despite dire warnings, that our misconduct would cause irreparable damage to the world, somehow the sun still rose, our faces didn’t ‘stick like that’ when the wind changed and we have to come to terms with the fact that we were lied to in order to control our conduct. Some of them were valid, some were not.

At 21 we begin to realise that our parents, like our governments and systems, are just people, doing the best they can with what they know. They are neither all-knowing or all powerful, they make mistakes. The relationship has to change. It is time to write a new story, knowing where we came from, learning from the lessons of the past but stepping into self-responsibility, where we no longer blame others or hold others responsible for our well-being. A time to discover that, maybe we can do things better. When we come from a place of loving self-care, we naturally take care of others and the world around us.

We do know – we may doubt, but we know, deep down inside we know our own right and wrong. The doubt comes because we were trained to doubt. We created education systems that enforced specific external ideas of right and wrong, reinforcing the lesson by rewarding us for doing things ‘right’ and punishing us for doing things ‘wrong’. All this took us further away from our own innate truth, that inner Sat Nav that guides human beings to be the best they can be in the World. Oh not the best by any external measurement, but by that beautiful, subtle, satisfied feeling of love and well-being.

Happy 21st Beautiful People
