You can’t share what you don’t have

Happy New Year – 2022!

As a New Year unfolds, I realize (again) an inner desire to share.

I also realize if I want to share love, joy, peace, happiness and contentedness, I have to have and BE all of those things.  It’s really so simple, so natural.

Are you like me, looking for love, joy, happiness and peace by trying to alleviate the hate, frustration, sadness — trying to control the uncontrollable instead of accept what is? Do you feel called to help change the world but didn’t know how?

I mistakenly thought alone had to make the statement, lift the load, control who, what, when where, why and how.

After a lifetime of trying, seeking answers, trying to clarify and put the Truth in a neat little package, I recognize that Truth is an ongoing reality that needs no control by me.  I only need to be willing to accept what is.  I don’t have to agree with or like what is, but simply accept it.  Resistance just puts the focus on what I’m resisting instead of what I desire – love, joy, peace, happiness, contentedness.  If I put my thoughts and energies on resisting what I don’t want, like or agree with, I exchange what I want for that which I don’t.

When I focus on what I really want, I create a loving, joyful, peaceful and happy world for myself, one I share effortlessly and continuously.  You can’t share what you don’t have.

What do I want to share love or hate?  Acceptance or denial?  Happiness or sadness?  Peace or resistance?  Knowledge or perception?  Compassion or indifference?  Truth or opinion?

What do you have you want to share?  What do you share?
