PLEASE DON'T CALL ME 'PRIVILEDGED'. THE WORD IMPLIES AN ACCIDENTAL FORTUNE OR DUMB LUCK. NEITHER ARE TRUE! I HAVE BEEN IN DEDICATED SERVICE TO LOVE, ACRUING KARMA, BOTH IN THIS LIFETIME AND COUNTLESS OTHERS. NOT PRIVILEDGES... BLESSED.
The following was a response/question that someone sent in response to the above statement, as well as my response:
Q: How does this idea apply to the kids born in Syria today? Just bad karma from a past life?
A: My first reaction is to point out that my statement is fundamentally unrelated to yours. I am speaking of the urban definition of a word (privilege) that is thrown around a lot in my circles. Look, I could say something about the color white, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in the rainbow.
I will gladly answer your question, but be warned that you may not like it: I do believe that EVERY SINGLE SOUL has chosen their life. Maybe y(our) assumption is that ‘bad’ or ‘poor’ wasn’t the intention or an accident… That somehow God made a mistake. My direct experience is that God does not make mistakes.
What if the ‘mistake’ is precisely what that person needs? I was sexually abused as a young child. It has made me a fierce woman, and driven me to empower children and women with my work. It also froze a part of me that has remained childlike, I am now able inspire children because I understand how they see the world.
From where we sit, being poor and uncomfortable is a curse that no one would ever choose, but that is a judgment on that soul’s choice. Every one of us has enlisted in a never-ending game of cycles, and the mission is to experience every single emotion until you enlighten… then start all over again. That said, I understand that it’s hard to bypass this belief when speaking of defenseless children, animals or the environment, as they seem powerless against adult humanity’s insanity.
However, my wealth and abundance does not make another person poor, unless it does and therein lies one of our Earth’s real problems: when those who have more don’t turn around and share their findings and abundance with others. We are in this together as one, we are here to help each other rise, to teach each other, and there is plenty for all.
No one moves beyond this dimension until all do.
So, let’s get to work!!
