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

IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP

the importance of sleep

 

It has been quite some time since I posted last and a lot has happened to make me realize that closing my eyes to what is will no longer protect me or the rest of the world from what lies ahead.

We go about our daily business to try and get through all the demands our lives and jobs require. This in itself is exhausting and making time for personal needs and reflections seems almost impossible.

Ignoring what’s happening around the world and even in our own backyard is very necessary to plow through mentally and emotionally as not to become too distracted.

Jobs become exercises and the people in our lives are taken for granted, as we systematically go through our day hoping for the absense of a problem or dilema that may cause us to deviated from the norm and have to come up with a solution that we may or may not be comfortable with.

Allowing drama to take over avoids the truth of things and the static and confusion created by the negativity allows us to stay asleep exposing our vulnerability to become even more targeted.  This is like a magnet to those around us who would take advantage of our inability to be present in our thoughts and actions.

So the first step is opening up our eyes to see what is right in front of us, then opening up our hearts to accept what is, and change the only thing we can about everything and that is our thoughts about it.

Seeing, hearing ,and accepting the truth of things is the first step towards coming out of a day dream that all is well in the world, a world you are apart of and will be affected by.

We can all make a change on this Earth we call home one thought at a time, for our thoughts are powerful and our true intentions greater than we realize.  Be conscious of what you think and say, make it come from love and kindness it’s the first step towards real change.

We are all connected and cross paths with others for reasons we sometimes do not understand.  But to be grateful and humble through the current phases in our lives opens up the true lesson in all our encounters.

Send love and light to those all around the world going through very difficult life lessons,and be ever so grateful that yours are manageable if you just open your heart and walk away from conflict.Fighting fire with fire only causes more pain, it’s easier to be good than evil.

Ask yourself again and again do I conduct myself from love or fear?  The answer will help you understand why your life is unfolding the way it is.

Love yourself enough not to look for it in places it can never exist for you.  Love those who see you for who you are, and walk away from a love that does not serve you.  But in order to do that you must know who lives in your heart and make it a place others too would like to live.
