Love Each Other

ara love each other 2

It was just two short years ago after my daughter and I watched the news I said to her that the US was gearing up for even more chaos.  I predicted race wars after the newscasts had started subtly introducing ‘racism’ and playing the ‘race card’ each day.  Two years later, here we are.  It is the typical “problem, reaction, solution” being played out before our very eyes.  The masses have been hypnotically conditioned and gently eased into hatred once again.  It plays upon the anger, righteousness and hatred that already exists within each of us and expands it, controls it, and amplifies it until we all cry out for the solution that will make us ‘safe’.  There is absolutely nothing that anyone can offer or do that ever affords the alleged security and safety we demand.  It all comes from ourselves. What is being witnessed  is a direct reflection of our zealousness to prove one another wrong, showcase the shortcomings/differences and beat our fists on others to be heard and agreed with.  Terrorism begins at home.  Your home.  My home.  Our homes.  It begins with anger, animosity and aggravation towards anything that we perceive not to be in alignment with ourselves.  Children are not ‘haters’ by nature.  They are taught and conditioned by their parents, grandparents, ancestral teachings and the media.  It is ludicrous to me that skin colour is even an issue.  Considering each and every one of us is scientifically empty space we need to be more cognizant of what we are fighting for or against!  And speaking of fighting against—whatever you push against, say ‘no’ to, and rally vociferously about when it comes to what you don’t want only makes more of it.  And it is that premise that is played upon and encouraged.  The moment anger and hatred rear their heads we are able to see just what is within ourselves that needs attention and healing. It isn’t just ONE person that is the cause.  It is the many who prey upon, rely on and toy with the facets of ourselves that have yet to be healed.  Those in the know, ‘know’.  It is about all of us.  Clean up your own inner backyard.  It would be a marvelous world if we all did just that. And Love one other—not just when it is easy to do so because you deem someone worthy of it.  Love one another–no matter what.~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Spiritual Teacher & Author


What I am noticing….


Good morning world! I have been up before the sun feeling invigorated and inspired! I poured my coffee and read/responded to emails and then turned my attention to Facebook. I am really not all that enamoured with it these days as there seems to be too many ads in the News Feed and not enough content from Friends and when there is it is almost a day old. It might be time to find another social networking platform. However, from what I did read this morning I noticed a few things that made me wonder. When I wonder, I write.

I have noticed that people can get right on board with posts that depict some of the wrongness of the world like violence, animal cruelty, gender inequality, LGBT marriages and agree we need a free-flowing stream of Love that heals all and embraces differences. I have noticed that these issues, often at arms length as they occur ‘elsewhere’ are easy to ride on the proverbial band wagon with ardent fist-pumping. Yet I have noticed these same people turning on others with a brand of venom that surely would never be spoken to a person’s face but somehow seems proper in the ethers of Facebook. I have noticed that rallying friends on the other side of the computer screen seems to offer some sort of validation to the rightness of their feelings and ultimately their behaviour. If one has a disagreement with another it should be discussed with that person. If no common ground can be found it is simply the Universe showing that there is no longer an energetic alignment and it is time to move on. So move on. No need to air the poison as it serves no one.

I have noticed that it is true that if we want what we perceive as wrong in our world to be corrected we need to be correct in ourselves and to each other. This battle between the dark and the light is within Self—not with other people. Perhaps pay more attention to why you feel the need to express your anger publically for there will be the clue to what needs your attention. It is never about others.

We can all agree there is a huge macrocosm of problems looming over our plane of existence but I fail to see how we can collectively heal and change them if we are so focused upon the microcosm in the way that we are. We owe it to ourselves, each other and indeed the world to BE the change. It won’t change by itself. It changes by how we, each and every one of us, deal with our shadows within. Shine some light where it can do the most good and take responsibility of what it shows you. You cannot begin to change it if you do not own it. Heal the inner pain that has allowed your history to be repeated over and over. It’s time. The true you is longing for breath. Unconditional love is yearning to be expressed. You are so worth the dignity of this kind of effort. So is the world…and it is waiting.



Peace. It is not something you demand from other countries. It is not something we demand from each other. It is not something witnessed, it is felt. Peace is not killed for. It is not expected, demanded, manipulated, given or taken away. Spend less time shaking your fist at where you perceive peace isn’t. The more you point fingers and cry foul the more elusive peace seems to be. Peace. It is who we are. Let peace reign. It starts with you–not just at Christmas–but every moment you breathe.
