So I was on facebook this morning and was upset a little by certain things I saw which demonstrated misunderstanding on part of certain individuals. An unwillingness to support the expansions I'm making. I will not name names, but it prompted me to make a statement on my wall which I will place in this book as well. It is the following.
"It's not about the surface, vanity, or superficiality. It's about self acceptance, fun, full embrace of the moment. It's about the courage to be transparent, present, joyful, and fully arriving here on earth and discarding attitudes that say I have to change to be loved. It's me being me and enjoying what IS and what potential exist within me. And there is nothing ANYONE can say that will convince me this is wrong. This is my Knowing."
Cool, so a few synchronicities have happened today and in fact all of today's events seem to be pointing at one critical reality. It is affecting my awareness in a very specific way. I am seeing that we have so much potential and power and love and light and much of the struggling we are going through is because we are afraid to shine as all that we are! If you recall my intention list and that it was essentially two main categories plus a third, it was pointing to just this. The right was Self Empowerment which is really just stepping into the power that I innately have and AM (the conceptual right). The second was "fun with others" or full enjoyment of the moment, or play, or complete presence in joy and togetherness. This is all simply saying that though on the right I am striving to become this left represents the reality that I already AM! It is Shining NOW where as the right is bringing out MORE of who I AM NOW. The conceptual center was neutral, it is a space that allow discovery, self inquiry, and a detachment from all pre-made concepts. An openness, an innocence. This to me is necessary so that I don't deceive myself into thinking that all that is important is the concepts I've already identified.
But all the drama and striving to end suffering, it is all because we are afraid to shine our inner light! I see it in peoples eyes, in their hesitation, in their low self worth, we all have a little of this in us probably. We are amazing beings! Just accept that and BE that. It doesn't have to go to our heads. It just is a reality and we can simply step into it by deciding to be done with half-assing life and belittling ourselves. I feel this is yet another thing that we are finishing with. It's little more than an old habit now, one that we can move beyond once we say "Enough is Enough" an just GO ahead and be amazing, no ego trips necessary. Just SHINE!
Obviously I can say whatever I want, words are powerful but examples are much more powerful. I can tell you to shine, or I can shine as an example. Love ya'll!
All things creative.
