“The Joy and Purpose of Life is To Be Free to Be.” Janet StraightArrow
As a child I was known to say, “If only everyone was responsible for themselves, the world would work.” As we break from our learned patterns of giving our power away to others in various ways, we learn how to step into ourselves fully with deep love, respect and care for self and others.
Be The Medicine gives us a new view of what responsibility means, how we can be responsible for us, and how we are not, and how through this powerful new perspective we can live free, better, healthy and happy lives, naturally.
I was born to live and teach Be the Medicine. This has been a life work and purpose for me. My life has been a most challenging walk from birth, and yet to keep seeking and walking has been natural for me. It has been a life journey of rejecting what is not okay and being curious how to live and heal and live free to be the amazing humans we are.
My challenges and those of other close to me caused me to look more deeply into the illusions we believe and experience. I saw everything as a problem to solve instead of staying stuck and believing limitations. Big life and health questions spurred me on. Healing myself from and early death and extreme body pain inspired me to discover complete healing and how it could be accomplished.
Universal Laws and Wisdom
As I explored, I realized I was looking for the highest truth of life, love and health. We tend to stop short of our goals of health and life for many reasons. The common beliefs and fears in the family and culture and self keep us stuck in poor health and unhappiness and pain that is unnecessary.
Universal laws break limiting beliefs. In order to allow this higher knowledge, we need to make room in our consciousness, let go of what we thought was truth, to discover what is true.
To be free, we must know how we are not free. To be responsible AKA able to respond, we need to know how we can find answers and results inside of us.
We are the change, we are the answers, we are the medicine for the earth, and each one of us. It takes growing up, with the innocence of a child. It takes letting go of wounded, controlled ego, and tapping into the wise all knowing soul. It takes having fun with it all instead of seeing it as a job.
Celebrate discovering being wrong, so we can find out what is correct. It takes loving us and having compassion for all, as we live in this illusion of victim, when we are the complete opposite of that.
Love is always the answer and yet it takes quite a bit of growth and waking up to understand and live that. We choose to be free by letting go of pain and misery.
Something else I knew as a child is “Everything counts!” At six-years old this shook me to my core. Each thought, action, experience and person makes a difference and recreates the world each moment. That was a great awareness and responsibility. I did not know how to deal with the enormity of this, and yet it was a focus for my life’s journey.
We are as free as we choose to be. From a young age, adults would listen to me and say, “You have the gift of discernment.” Which meant, I knew the truth from the lie with teachers, parents, children and all others. I learned when to speak and keep quiet, to stay safe from attack as much as possible, and kept my own counsel and made decisions from knowing what was truth and illusion.
No Judgment or Blame.
We are all in this together. We cannot live differently, until we learn how. People reject responsibility for self, because they want to avoid self-blame or judgment, and do not want to believe it was in their hands all the time. So we do not judge or blame, we go deeper to learn how to live our lives free. Having compassion that this is a growth process and choice for everyone is key.
No one else is responsible for us, even our parents and partners. We choose how to live in our heads and bodies, heart and soul, no one else lives there but us. When we give others power over us, we are trapped in illusion, when we are truly free, we just need to learn the way to be.
Discerning truth and illusion in our heads and the world is a huge learning for each one of us. Letting go of everything we have been taught to believe, even when it did not make sense, is a process. It becomes simple, the more we let go of what is not true, and heal and clean out of our mind, body and spirit what traps us in fear and conformity. We have to learn what is true and how to release the lies.
Our world is immersed in reasons, excuses and powerlessness when each day we can stand more surely in our power of love and humanity creating a better life and world. Letting go of outside approval is key. We begin to learn to discern truth from the inside out and trust it naturally.
Its okay to be wrong, or what others might call bad, because we do not agree. We all have the right of free will to learn to create our own path and life. Others have the right to disagree and find their own way too.
What we judge or get angry, it has something to do with us, no blame, just awareness that we hold some of that too, its our issue and we can heal it and be free. We each have a purpose individually and collectively to discover and live. No one else needs to understand just learn by being with us, whether it’s a leader or a family member, they have a purpose with you and me.
We are on a journey of discovery. Each one of us is here to remember our divinity. We have been taught against us for generations, and are now opening up to our true reality more each day.
We have only to look at the elections to see where our illusions still are. How can we choose and be responsible in such a time? We can go deeper into us and find ways to wake up in our body, life and purpose, one person at a time.
Love is the answer, guide and teacher.
When we are not in love, peace, health and joy we have places to awaken and heal in us. No one is perfect and we all have challenges in our lives that wake us up in their challenge to teach us how to be free. Love you and all.
Being more love and loving each day is a great guide post. Asking inside what can I do to be free of pain, suffering and misery will bring the answers naturally.
We learn how to listen and trust and receive. When we release the opposite of who we are, it melts away, because it is illusion. The more we reinforce the problem, it remains. We cannot play it both ways.
Be the Medicine is a way to empower ourselves to be free and live our whole self and divinity naturally. It is a path of joy and love, health and hope.
This is neutral, no one religion, it is the religion of oneness and empowers our unity as humans, with great diversity. Oneness without separation. Love without judgment. Peace because all is one in love. We each play our part. Its not about fixing others, its about living our true self, divine, one person at a time.
This is how we change the world, we begin with us, and it grows. We release fear and control of others and love on through. It works. Try it. Live it. It takes a while to release the fears and beliefs and illusions and excuses that have created the problems. Because our divinity is truth, it moves mountains more quickly that we can imagine.
The one who guides us is our soul which is divine. It is our best friend, ally and true self that does not want to get sick or die, kill or be killed, it wants to live healthy, happy and free. Finding that inner connection to who we really are and living it, is how we can be the medicine for us and the earth, day by day. Patient, peaceful, loving and free. It is worth the adventure. Have fun with it!
