Happiness and Truth
"There are only two things that matter to me in life, Happiness and Truth."
When I make statements like that I am not attempting to declare universal truths necessarily, but rather it is a statement that represents my current state of being as I am continually growing and evolving.
What it does, or at least what I hope it does, is cause the reader to ask themselves questions. "How much is my life about happiness?" or "How important is truth to me really?" or even "Will I self indulge in personal illusions to uphold the standard of happiness I have come to know? Am I truly open to truth or am really just clinging to ideas I WANT to be true?" and from the other side of the spectrum "Is truth so important that I won't allow myself to enjoy the bounty and the beauty of life as it is?"
For me honestly I place Happiness above Truth but remain open to paradigm shifting truths that prevent me from living in a perpetual state of self deception. In fact, in my happiness I call to Truth. And it is my belief that though truth can and will shake things up and at times feel uncomfortable, it will none the less bring us to a greater state of happiness than we have ever known if we can integrate it gracefully. And it is my BELIEF that the more genuinely happy at a deep level we are the more things just plain make sense and truth finds us more readily, thus happiness, or deep joy, comes first. It to me indicates that I am in fact getting closer to truth. I also feel that Love IS truth and in Love we know both truth and happiness. My mind and my heart remain open, not stubborn. Thinking I know and knowing are not the same, and postulating has limited usefulness. I will "settle" only for KNOWING. But in the mean time I remain at Ease and at Peace with where I am.
Dense Energy Sucks
I have been thinking a bit. Feeling a bit. I feel done with negativity. There is an agreement I feel I have made to help uplift others by being around their negativity and perhaps I am transmuting some of it. I love it, and yet I leave it, for I am done with the old. It is time to live another way.
The Splendor of Unexpected Communion
I went outside to get away from the dense energy I was feeling in the house and out side, breathing in the fresh, cool dew scented breeze I came across a red feather near the end of our driveway. I've never found this color feather here before. To me it symbolizes a grounded embodiment of power, and the support that the spirit realm is giving in this endeavor so that I can move gracefully. Some would say I am reading too much into things, but I look at it as communion. Since no accident is truly accidental in this universe we would be wise to take notice of things and start connecting the dots. All I have to say is THANK YOU SPIRIT! :)
Follow the Signs and Symbols Always!
That red feather, yeah that one, that was a sign. Do you want proof? Well In considering going shopping with my mom, which I'd only given literally two seconds thought when I picked up my keys and casually looked down at them. What I saw was an opportunity. My Native American key chain has a red feather in her hair! I didn't hesitate for a moment. Right then and there I decided I was going shopping with my mom. Wouldn't you know that the first time in a long while she asked if I would like to come with her as soon as I stepped out my bedroom door! I said sure! But that's not all! At the store I came across a belt with the Native American Bald Eagle on it, something I've wanted for over a month now! I was even going to do a trade for one like this.
And now I am about to pee myself because sitting here writing this I looked over at the clock to see 11:11am. And YES I took a photo for evidence!!!
All things creative.
