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..

 

 

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.
