We all go through changes in our lives. That’s how we grow. That’s how we learn. That’s how we survive. Some changes are accepted. Some are not accepted. It’s the changes we accept that make us who we are.
Who do we want to be? The image in our mind or the image people see us as? Most of the time we choose to be who we see ourselves as and not what other people want us to be. But people that surround us have a great influence upon our decisions in life. It takes a strong person to ‘feel’ themselves and ‘be’ who they ‘feel’.
All of this leads to acceptance. Whatever level of acceptance you choose determines your stature in life.There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in this choice. It is just a choice. You’ll have many more opportunities to choose as life unfolds around you.
Whatever you choose, is right for you. In the right place, in the right moment.
That moment is now.
It’s all in the mind’s eye. We impress upon ourself our desires and beliefs. But, we have only ourselves for our existence. Our existence can be meaningful or entrapped.
He tells me he’s sixty-one . I’m sixty three, but the distance between us is non-comparable.
He’s layer’s of wrinkled waiting and wanting, but his belief in his desires and soul permeate his every word..
Will he make it to his obsession or will it fall on deaf ears and humanity?
He really deserves a chance for the fulfillment of his dream, but will any one listen?
His T-shirt hangs on him in layers of perpetual rebellion, and still it looks gracious. Why?
Because he is greater than who he feels.
I am dragged away from the energy of a thousand moments, un-realized, but I go.
Sometimes saving the moment is more important than what your end result will reveal.
One can be selfish. An expression of the inner self to be realized. Totally unnecessary, but inevitable with our egos. It’s only the smallest amount of love that we are looking for, but we go to extremes to realize our desires.
Youth dance to an inner force of who they are. They can develop muscles to entice their image, or pretend they have what they need. But all in all, they’re searching for the one.
One what? Everyone’s desires are different. Like DNA. It’s amazing that some actually meet their other half.
What they do with their existence when they meet the One, is tormentuous. Extremes are conquered or waylaid, but in the end a need is fulfilled.
For this time around, it’s all most of us need.
I approach the taxi and ask if he is first. “Yep” in a tone commensurate with as much energy as a slug crawling across salt in a garden. He takes me home without a word and a surprise when I tip him. Even I was surprised I tipped.
We all need reassurance no matter how we feel. It’s nice when it comes from a source least expected. It becomes more meaningful.
Like getting ice cream when you’re a child. A reward for who you are.
There’s nothing like someone who loves.
We all need someone or something that makes us feel special. We take ourselves for granted. We forget to be kind to our feelings and in turn become critical of who we are and who we project. Because we don’t see the love we are, specialness from inside is lost. We seek it from an outside source. We carry guilt from our lives, our religion and ourselves.
Our thoughts define us. If we’re a sacred soul, we’re angel like. Caring, thoughtful, sincere and giving. There’s fathoms of beauty in our being which formulate politeness and joy. We have only to project this into the world around us to make us feel special. Our dreams can be fulfilled by enjoying the smallest things in life. The beach. Smiling. Chatting with strangers. Breathing. Radiating love.
If you meet someone with special qualities, or your feelings expess your specialness, consider yourself loved.
We’re all dancing on the dance floor, and we’re all expressing how we feel and who we are. He has his shirt off. He’s dancing to who he is, but not to the music. When the tune changes and then the beat is adjusted, he repeats the formula he has in his mind. It’s the pattern he loves and adores. It’s not necessarily the music, but it’s what he knows and feels comfortable with as he sees himself.
We all do it. It’s human nature.
We’re looking for acceptance on our level of being. We express. We want .
Is it accepted or rejected? We’re only looking for acceptance.
It’s so important to us, only, because it’s root base is love.
In the end, it’s only love we want.
The worst part of shame is knowing.
Knowing what you feel, knowing what you did, knowing who you are.
And when you look for an answer, there is only one.
We’re all looking for an opportunity to fulfil our deepest desires. Some times it presents itself, but we fail to grasp its truth. It’s a contradiction to our beliefs , conditioning and our present knowledge. It’s not a fault, it’s a fact of life.
There are scenarios occurring momentarily in any given moment and any one of these is a memory. Depending on the emotion evoked at the time of delivery, it’s either positive or negative, but only according to what we know.
What if what we know is wrong?
Take these precious moments you’ve chosen and pin them to a line of washing that can be pulled in when needed to refresh the spirit of life.
We want to know, and we want to understand, but mostly, we want to be living.
It will give us the most joy.
Maybe we’ve been misguided or misled or told an opinion that was untruthful?
We have to think for ourselves. An ominous solution to a simple situation.
Uncertainty is a feeling based on fear. But we all carry it with us from day-to-day. I watch his fingers twitch as he anticipates his request not knowing the result. It’s the ‘not knowing’ that we fear the most.
Why is this?
It’s because we feel insecure. Insecure about what?
The next moment. What if we can’t handle what comes next?
Basically we live in constant fear. We lack trust. Trust in who we are, what we are, and how we are. We create shelters for our unknowingness and they create excuses in our lives.
We have only to view our essence to release our self-made prison.
Easier said than done.
A space controlled by the doer.
This space is malleable. It is open to suggestion. It is closed to mind set.
He dances with a knowing that he is good at what he does. But he is unaware of opposition. It hasn’t happened to him yet. So he precludes he is the best. His field of experience is narrowed to what he sees, in this moment.
He is open to an experience he hasn’t tasted. He meets a taste of exotic and drops his desire for inevitable.
All these spaces occupy the same moment. The moment is desire.
Fulfillment may be short lived or a while off, but it’s the anticipation that gives us hope.
Hope for what?
It’s not as easy as it looks or feels.. There are always unknowns..
But isn’t that delightful. It gives us cause to keep gravitating to the unknown.
The unknown is what makes us alive.
