I have been on my journey to awakenedness for some years now and though it hasn’t always been easy, it has been COMPLETELY worth it. Awakenedness simply means being in tune with your mind and body, living your life fully and happily rather than in autopilot. Autopilot, meaning settling for what is the “norm” while suppressing who we really are and what we really want. Settling. I am growing and changing everyday through my practice which includes having gratitude for everything and loving myself and all things as we are all connected. Society has made us believe that we are all disconnected, different; which couldn’t be further from the truth. We all want love. We all want connection. We all want to smile. We all want freedom. We all want happiness. And though I am practising every day, I’m still faced with challenges, but I have learned to embrace these challenges and changes; through that comes strength. Strength is growth. Life is about experiencing beauty, and let me tell you, there is so much beauty in this world. So much.
We all have our own story, and some are fucking fucked up, but I am here to tell you that you CAN choose happiness and be your ENTIRE self. You can let go. Your past or situation does not have to rule your life. You are in control. You are truly strong and powerful if you allow yourself to be. People are growing older and sicker rather than older and wiser. And I am sad about this because I see it in the people I love the most. I am here to speak for them and for you. I am no longer afraid of speaking my truth. I base all of my knowledge on what love has done for me, the proof is INSIDE of me and though I am the only one who can feel what is true for me, I hope that in some way, I can help guide you to your truth. The great news is that, your truth is there and always has been, and will continue to always be.
By truth, I mean, the REAL you, the BEST you, the LOVING you, the passionate you, the fearless you. The you, that doesn’t give a fuck what people think. The you, that always puts YOU first so that you can be the best for the people around you. The you that can and will take risks.
The only thing holding you back is fear. Fear of change. Fear of moving away from what is comfortable. Fear of how you might affect others. Fear of being different. Fear of what people will think. I am here to tell you that fear is not real. 95 percent of the things we are afraid of don’t exist. Think about it, all the things we worry about are all in our head. WHAT IF this or that happens? Well fuck that, what is happening NOW? Live. Here. Now. Living in the present moment is the only real way to live in a way that is free of illusion. If shit is fucked up right now, focus on what you are grateful for and make a change. Baby yourself and speak words of love to yourself. When you are going through tough times, visualize the child version of yourself and speak to them with loving words. Everything will be ok. You will get past this and things WILL get better.
Fear stems from thoughts of the ego. The ego is the person you think people want to see. The ego is the “cleaned” up version of yourself. The ego is the person who isn’t real. The ego sacrifices your true being.
Who is the person thinking about thinking? Engage with your inner self my love.
Do what makes you happy.
I love you.
