Let It Be

We can either allow our emotions to get the better of us or we can allow all to be as is.

Easy Way

It’s easy to curse at life/the universe/nature when it’s throwing an obstacle or two in your way. It’s easy to grab hold of a certain set of ideas when things are not going in your favor. It’s easy to get down on yourself and succum to your mind telling you how horrible you are at life.

But negativity and complaining is complacency. It’s settling.  It’s deciding to stay in that mindset instead of moving on. Don’t forget to let go.

Running Doubt

Doubt is a lot like running toward the edge of a cliff in order to jump off to get to the other side of another cliff that is just out of reach.

You must run at full speed, never faltering and jump at the last possible moment in order for your own velocity and momentum to carry you to the other side. Should you slow down, try and stop at the last second etc, you will fall off the cliff and not make it to the other side.

Repercussion

Every action has a repercussion that tattoos and echoes throughout our lives. None of us will always choose our actions wisely.

But to truly fathom that, is to be free.

Quote

Child-like

Inside all of us, there is a child. Whether we know it or not, that child, that child dictates much of how we see and experience the world.

This child, this younger self, wants you to be happy. And it can be a real pain in the ass if you’re not following what makes you happy. When you are happy, and when you are aligned to what makes you happy, everything is copacetic between yourself and this child. Following YOUR flow, and maybe doing something child-like are what feed this part of you. But, despite its playful and joyous exterior, it is also what is in control of your ego, and uses it when necessary to make you life hard. Most of your fears come from this child as well. And your must take the time to sit with and embrace these fears in order to show your inner child you are in control.

Happy

Everyone has the ability to experience and give happiness. Yet, happiness cannot be taught. Nobody can teach someone else how to be happy.

Somebody can guide you toward happiness, but the actual act of being happy rests solely within the one who is seeking.

Throwing

Folks are eager and quick to point fingers and throw stones when something goes wrong or in retaliation for something. This is quite a childish response. John Lennon said it best,

“When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.”

The moment one lashes out in response, regardless of so-called “justification,” one shall be labeled as a violent offender. Once one is labeled as such regardless of physical, verbal or spiritual aggression, one finds them self being watched more and treated differently.

However, there are times when one has no choice, but to defend themselves. It is a natural reaction of not just the mind, but the body as well in order to prolong life. But many are quick to jump to this action as a response instead of seeing all other possibilities first.

Quote

Intent

Intentions behind everything are important.

People can feel/understand. When you’re joking with someone, and in your jesting you put them down, one can hear in your voice and your intention that you are joking. Now if you were upset with someone and put them them down, they would know you are not.

Your intention usually comes to fruition. A writer who intends for his work to be seen by people usually is, however if he just wants his work to be seen, then it will be, but probably not by many. He didn’t intend for his work to be seen by many.

When you focus your intention on anything, it will come to pass. But you must understand and see the thoughts of which you are intending. Faltering breeds faulty intentions. Knowing brings all you see.

Quote

Tune In and Turn On

Love, compassion, understanding, acceptance and other positive traits/ways of life exist in all of us. We simply choose when we turn on and tune into these ideas.

Quote

Force

To force or attempt to convince an idea over someone means said idea is fallible Either something is wrong with the idea or the person doesn’t wish to receive it. A natural, real idea requires little effort, there’s no need to force or convince anyone if everyone is going to be receptive.

And, those who are receptive will understand while those who aren’t won’t for right now. Perhaps they will later.

Meditation During Eclipse

If there was ever a time for action, it is upon us. The time is swiftly approaching in which many will be pulled in various directions. Remember to remain vigilant and follow your self in all forms.

Our actions are going to make waves in every spectrum.

It is no longer a choice of whether to support those taking action or being the ones taking action. Everyone must take action. By action, we simply mean follow your path, your inner voice. If you don’t feel like your job is fulfilling some part inside of you, quit. If you have been thinking about writing a letter to a long-lost friend, do it. If you were thinking about protesting something, protest. Now is not the time for hesitation, doubt and procrastination. Follow what is right for you.

But we mustn’t forget the principles for which we stand;  love, peace, being and gratitude. Gratitude is most important. We need to remember to give thanks to those who have helped AND challenged us; from the food we consume to the individual who cuts you off in traffic. These principles will assist us in seeing through the fear and doubt that is quite pervasive and attempting to spread.

We are all one, right here, now.

Perfection

Nothing is perfect or 100%.

It’s impossible as everything in our bodies and around us are moving constantly. Even nature isn’t perfect. If it was, everyone and everything on this planet would be in line and in tune. But, we as people, are the very reason why nature is imperfect. If we were perfect there wouldn’t be any hunger and war everywhere.

If we were perfect, we probably wouldn’t feel any negative emotions. But then, we wouldn’t learn anything. In this way, we are also perfect, because when we can experience these negative emotions, we learn. We have to experience the positive and negative so we have a full experience and understanding.

But this is the part we often forget, as we strive for either positive or neutral. Then we loose sight of what the negativity is there for; to teach us! Now I can hear some people reading this thinking to themselves, “I just wish class was cancelled for a few days! I have so much negativity around and inside of me.” 

That just means there’s a lot for you to learn right now. And it’s not going away until you understand what needs to be understood within yourself. 

Quote

Gratitude

Be thankful every day for everyday.

Often, many of us forget that we are here now, and that everyone and everything has helped us get to this point at this moment. Show your gratitude; thank the universe, thank your friends, thank your obstacles, thank your clothes, thank your food, thank your body, thank your pain, thank YOUR self in the morning and/or at night. Gratitude is just as sacred as love.
