Lost in translation

Everything from the old life is fading out… Everything I love..every terrible burden, every unconfessed sin.. And everything I’ve ever held to be true. I realize now that those seismic quakes that split the foundation of my life last March was only the very beginning of the Big Change. I remember, then, that I had wished for this. I had resolved that I was leaving, I was going to create a better life for me and my children . I was full of purpose and optimism. I read somewhere that it would not be easy, but in my self righteousness I had forgotten to brace myself for the blow. The truth hurts! And the truth is, it’s not easy. It’s not hard, but it is difficult. Being free means first taking a good hard and honest look in the mirror. If, in all your self-indulgent victim-hood you had forgotten that you are responsible for your own life and every decision you made led you to where you are now and - the big Horror!- nobody is coming to save you! You must save yourself. By any means necessary. These means ate meant to shape and sculpt you for your greatness. It’s disguised as hard work, sometimes pain.. Sometimes loneliness and discomfort. It’s in these moments that I’m struggling to surrender.

It’s real funny [except not funny at all] how the way to devalue, dehumanize and gaslight women is to say they have Daddy Issues

Daddy Issues became a well known thing because men have become known for abusing and leaving their children

And yet, somehow that’s a reflection on the daughter and not men

But Feminists make up sexism right?

Live in continual fulfillment.

This quote rings close to home for me. It is something I’ve noticed quite strongly in the past days to a week. Come to think of it, I’ve spoken about fulfillment to many this week.

It began with myself, of course - but, it was consciously surfaced in the last session I had with my therapist. (Instead of calling her by her occupation, I’ll call her by her first name - Jen.) I told her that I value everything I feel within myself. These feelings aren’t like my thoughts. My mind seems to overly interpret my concurrent feelings, so I simply let myself feel before thinking. And with every feeling, I move through the motions of my life. In doing this, I’m able to progress through proper vibrational frequencies which in turn makes life much more exuberant and easy.

To explain, let’s start by imagining your every desires - your dreams, your goals, the every small and grandeur experiences you want to get into or even dabble in. It can be anything from starting an art project to traveling the world solo. It can even be the desire to achieve peace with yourself and others :) These desires, you can feel them within yourself. 

Next time you desire something, try to not think about anything - just feel it. For me, the energy circulates between my heart and solar plexus. So it’s pretty fast flowing and prominent. The feeling is strong. I’m not sure if that’s the case for every individual, but it represents well. Anyways, these feelings that we hardly notice because our thoughts overwhelm and mask them, they tell us more than words ever will. Language is fragmented. That’s why we have such a difficult time defining and describing our emotions and abstract ideas - especially the idea of love. 

A friend of mine once asked me the question: "How would you define love?” In which I quickly responded with: "There is no definition. I refuse to define love.” He didn’t expect such an answer. Think about it, with something so expansive as love, you simply can’t define it. People do, yes, but that’s only because they are afraid of not knowing. This leads to labels, definitions, assumptions, judgements and so many more superficial things that are unnecessary yet existent due to simple yet fierce fears.

Which leads us back to feeling out your desires. Get rid of the physical baggage. It is the first step of fulfillment. Then, once you become aware of the energy and feeling of desire, you can pinpoint it when it occurs. With this, I’ve been able to understand myself and make decisions that line up with my inner values and desires. These decisions are ALWAYS (really emphasizing it for its immense truth) in alignment with the universe, so the sequence of events will fall perfectly into place every time.

This is why I believe I am so incessantly euphoric; why I absolutely love life and why you will continually catch me talking about how perfect life feels. I will move through life by understanding my energy and making choices off of what I feel within my heart. I don’t ever leave the mind behind, mind you. I adore the brain. But my heart chakra is a prized vessel that contains the very inner spirit I listen to. So the saying "listen to your heart” is essentially saying "listen to that inner spirit that is the all-encompassing truth and beauty of your pure self. The self that is needed to change the world and revolutionize peace, love, and unity.”

So go on, go listen to your soul speak through your feelings and make life and the universe even more incredible than it already is.

"My wife asked me if she could go on tour with Engelbert Humperdinck as a backup singer. We had four kids at the time, but I told her: ‘If I say ‘no,’ you’ll never forgive me. So go ahead.’ So she went, and she never came back."
