HOW WILL WE EVER GET HOME?

For many years I have felt isolated and alone, like being stranded on an island with no boat or navigational tools to guide me back home.  So home has been my destination for many many years.  A place where my heart can feel comforted and safe from all that uncertainty with each new day.  The world is very scary and what makes it more previllant today is that people have forgotten what’s most important.

The truth is things have always been uncertain and unpredictable and for many thousands of years the search for home has always been a part of the worlds culture. It’s just that society ignores the fact that many go without knowing where they will rest their heads tomorrow. Privledge has caused a stigma around those less fortunate and an ignorance to think they might not find themselves in the same position someday.

As we all know life can change in the blink of an eye, whether it’s through financial failure, physical health, emotional breakdown, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami’s, war, only a few can we control the outcome with, the rest is in the hands of the unknown and mother earth .  So why is it that we continue to play god when it comes to the fate of others?

The picture above shows stranded women with a true sense of desperation, fear and hopelessness, exactly what the circumstances wanted to create.  We can only imagine how they will persevere and survive the aftermath.  So often a situation is not of our doing and the need to feel victimized is what gets us through.  But what if we looked at it as a challenge to find out who we really are, and refuse to accept that in some crazy subconscious way  we deserve our fate.

Home is where the heart is and the heart lives inside of you.  You are your own best friend! We should not define ourselves from the amount of money, friends, jobs, family,or accomplishments we have obtained.  The truth is no two people are alike unless you wish to be a part of a heard that is identified by their persona, to be lead by a system that is breaking down.  Remember they can take away everything but the depth of who you are, your heat always goes wherever you go.

The Eygptians knew the heart is the persons ticket to eternity, weighed against a feather, stop being weighrd down by a heavy heart and embrace your true self by not wanting to be someone else, living somewhere else, longing for things to be different.  Stop asking why me and ask what’s the reason or more importantly what’s the lesson and how quickly can I accept this so I can move on in my journey.

For years I thought I was not capable of making the right decisions, then one day I realized there are no wrong decisions, just a longer way to get to where I need to be, home is right inside of you. No matter where you go there you are, and your essence, your true self will be there with you every step of the way.

Love yourself enough that no one can make you feel not worth of life because life is all about love, and the light you shine will be recognized by others and together with like minds true love can be found. Don’t waste your time trying to convince others of who you are, put that precious energy into yourself become one with nature and it’s creater, find peace and joy will follow, it’s truly liberating and life changing.  The path is not easy but the reward is priceless!

Love and Light

FAILING GRACEFULLY

into_the_forest_by_chriscold-d6ew0fiWe all fail at something, weather it’s in a job, relationship, communication,a project, failure to see the  hidden meaning in the way of a sign or a symbol that is put before us for interpretation , so that the art of failing gracefully allows us to embrace the unknown . .

Hind sight is always easy when reflecting on a situation gone wrong.  Mis interpretation is often the main factor in poor decision making.

The hardest part of feeling failure is the possibility that your disappearance can so easily be discarded.  Here today, gone tomorrow.  This is when the true test of self love applies.

All the enlightened reading cannot actually do the work for you, so to measure the experience is a mere reflection of your thoughts about it.

Anger, disappointment,  regret, blame, the need to clarify, none of which will alter the fact that the event which created the need for change can be corrected.

So what are we left with, a choice to move forward inspite of our regrets which translate into failure? or take a moment to reflect on what’s truly important to you in your inner most sacred place, and then thank the forces that created the circumstances to force us to reflect on the conflict between our inner world and our outer world.

Our journey and the paths we take are sometimes driven by principal rather than our true happiness.  Happiness is a state of being that overrides all the wasted time when making a decision that was not true to who we are.

We all have our individual journey though life.  The key is to realize we cannot walk this path alone, it’s just that sometimes we must share the path with someone not of our choosing, but then where is the lesson in that.

Our paths can prove confusing and interferred with by so much noise and clutter, our state of confusion enhanced by the overgrown foliage can camouflage the way causing it to be hidden from our sight.

Sometimes the answer is in plain sight but do to its simplicity can be overlooked and we then find ourselves on a beaten path only to be repeated til we get it.

Just as we are all individual so too is our journey through life.  The key to finding the path less traveled is to come out of exile and join the living through embracing the unknown..
