stillness

4 am and am still wide awake, this is the best time I reckon, just you and the inner stillness of the soul.

I think each person is inherently a loner, and this healthy alone-ness asks for ongoing renewal and cultivation.

Though embedded in a family, surrounded by love and supported in life, a person needs to have times of 'coming to self', time of aloneness even if it feels like loneliness.

To me, we need to be alone for periods of contemplating and prayer, 

for thinking, 
digesting of experiences, 
for writing and 
for renewing one's resolves.

Even the act of reading for leisure requires the withdrawal from interaction with others; we need to be alone, to be left alone, to have our aloneness respected.

I notice right from when I was young I don't like people at times and I thought I was weird, 

maybe this is it, 
only thus can we replenish the soul-strength that enables us to give to the world around us.

"Be the light unto the world, and hurt it not. Seek to build, not to destroy. By your shining example, seek only Godliness. Speaks only in truthfulness. Act only in love."

Be kind...

An open mind is what you need for inspiration, though not for making conclusions.

Some need 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=9 ... then there are smaller and smaller increments still.
We do not actually know other people, we ONLY know our judgment.
Yes, you are completely entitled to your opinion and you absolutely do have the right to voice it.
But, do you have no kindness? 

Spewing hate is straight up ugly, and ignorant, not to mention detrimental to humanity.
The good and the evil in the world, there are many complications behind them which are hard to understand which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

TRAUMA: THROUGH THE PAIN, TO THE GLORY!

"Trauma is stuck life energy. Creative, natural, playful life energy that was not allowed to flow when it first emerged and it tried to flow. 
It wasn’t safe to let it flow and you didn’t know how. And so it got stuck in your body. It’s not your fault, dear one.
The words you wanted to scream. The ways in which you wanted to move your body. The healthy human feelings you intelligently squished in order to protect yourself, get love, be “okay”, stay alive. The truth you needed to express, but couldn’t.
But it’s a new day, and anything stuck in you yesterday can be given permission to move again today. This will take courage, the willingness to feel old pain and breathe through it, to trust the body now instead of giving in to the mind and its fears. To tell the truth. To come out of hiding and let yourself be seen.
In the safety of your own presence, or in the safe presence of another who can hold you and trust your process, can you turn towards the sore place, the tight place, the dark place, the aching place, and bring to it the light of your awareness, the light of love?
Life only wants to play in you, dance, tremble, vibrate, surge and move through to completion. The rage, the terror, the impulses and urges and desires you learned were ‘sick’ or ‘dangerous’ or ‘wrong’ or ‘shameful’ were always natural, and normal, and healthy, and they won’t damage you as you turn towards them now and give them the love and attention and safe passage they always deserved.
You don’t have to act them out. Just feel them, shine the light on them, bow to them. And allow, allow, allow. 
Moment by moment.
Be a vast Heart now, a loving curious welcoming Heart, and trust this intelligent storm of feeling as it emerges, roars and passes in its own time.
Your wounds, your turbulent and sorrowful places, your traumas, are not mistakes; they are the sacred places in you desperately yearning for love, waiting to be penetrated by your curious Light.
So scream, shake, tremble, weep, vomit, make a holy mess - you are a survivor and you are alive and you are healing and learning to play again.
Through the pain, to the glory!
And behold:
The place in you that was never traumatized."

You turned towards yourself when you started to listen.

Build your career around your lifestyle, not your lifestyle around your career.

We only live one life on this earth, as far as we know. When the real meaning of this truly sinks in, you start to understand the real value of every single day in your life. 
You weren't put on this planet merely to serve your boss in order to put food on your table and a roof over your head; you are here to live your life to the fullest.
Those people who are truly happy and satisfied with their lives, build their careers around their lifestyles, not the other way around. 

This is what we should teach our children, and teach them at an early age because doing this is much easier if you start from the beginning. 
Every choice we make either moves us closer to living life as we want, or closer to living life as we have to because of our past choices. 
But it is never too late to live life your way.
Unless your job is your passion, you are spending a certain amount of time each day working in order to live the remaining time that you have the way that you want. 


The problem comes when working that job, for which you have no passion, sucks up all of your energy and passion for life, and you are just walking through life like a zombie on auto-pilot.

Choose your lifestyle and then decide how you will support your lifestyle. 


If you live your passion and your passion is your job, then you will never have to work a day in your life. 

Just remember, life is short; choose carefully how you spend your time.

Just ask yourself,

"Which choice will help me become the person that I want to be? 
Which choice is being true to my values and principles and which is not?" 

The answer to these questions will always point you in the right direction.

All of our days are filled with choices that we have to make, and the sum of those choices does add up to become who and what we are. 
Every day presents you will a multitude of choices, many which will test your conviction to your principles and your conviction to the lifestyle you want.

Some of those choices will have minor consequences, and some will have major consequences, but each one, no matter how small or how large, carries with it some consequence for your life. 


Every choice you make is either moving your closer to being the person you want to be or further away from whom you want to be.

If you keep this fact of life fresh in your mind, it will make the hard choices easier for you. 


In fact, when you keep this in mind, the hard choices become as automatic as the simple choices.

 "Did you know that there's no two people have ever been found to have the same fingerprints?

I also learned that those little ridges and whorls on the tip of each finger are formed from pressure on a baby's developing hands in the womb.

Our only purpose here, my only purpose, your only purpose, is to learn the map stamped on your fingerprint and follow it faithfully into the depth of your own life. Surprisingly, this turns out to be a most difficult task!

We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide example for others.
We are here to be eccentric,
different,
perhaps strange,
perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being.

As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves."

I am a Persistently Positive weed! I Grow! Grow! Grow! despite being chopped, poisoned or pulled! 
My Roots are Deep and Alive! 
I Thrive where others fail! 
I never give up! 
I am a Persistently Positive weed! 
I Rule the Garden of My Life

You become what you believe – not what you wish or want, but what you truly believe.



Nothing can touch you if you are humble. Neither praise or discouragement, because you know who you are.

So it is.



The GOLDEN RULES...

Who is Helping You, Don’t Forget them.
Who is Loving you, Don’t Hate them .
Who is Believing you, Don’t Cheat them.

Writing is not just a spiritual practice, it is also a psycho-therapeutic practice-
forcing to confront my demons,
the voice of not good enough,
issues around abandonment,
our childhood, and
collective download of 'who cares what you have to say?',

Our capacity to sit and focus for days on end while all our personal triggers arise etc.

So many triggers and niggling voices of self-doubt can arise in one paragraph as we are forced to confront the very real distinction between the healthy self-concept and the shamed version.

Yet there is so much growth at the heart of the process if we can let go of our obsession with the ‘perfect’ outcome and see the process as a healing journey.

And if we can stay with it, we will watch as the thing that we are creating morphs over time, ultimately becoming a reflection of the healthier being that wrote it.

A paragraph that is written from ashamed self-concept is radically different from one that is expressed from a place of self-love.

Like anything, we bring a conscious intention to, writing is a profound opportunity to heal and transform, outcome be damned.
