Traveling the Road of the Unknown
Traveling the Road of the Unknown

Everyone that wanders aren’t lost. The road nowhere leads to everywhere. Having an unlimited perspective to what may be, provides an abundant opening to what already is. I know that the road traveled in this life, is just a bridge that offers the pathway to unicity for all. When you get out of balance and decide to focus on the destination, rather than the journey, that is an indication that you’ve lost your way. You do, however have the power to get right back on track!

Becoming unconscious is consequently creating unwanted karma. Don’t take your focus away from the beauty that present moment awareness brings. Present moment awareness simply put, is bliss.  Let me ask you this: If your journey has become a means to an end, does this indicate you’re in a rush to call it quits? If you meet your ultimate destination, what will you have left? 

Life isn’t a destination. Life is a landing and you have already arrived. You are here. All power, beauty and glory has already been made available for you. Right here and right now, in this moment. But first, you must be present in order to recognize it. And, in order to claim it for yourself. 

Stop and listen my friend. Listen to the freshness of the melody the wind sings. Allow air to flow in, through and around you. Stop, listen and just be. Complaints about occasional bumps in the road, are unnecessary. The bumps in the road are there just to wake you up. Life literally desires your full attention. Not to mention, perception is key on the road traveled back to unity. 

Embracing the aliveness that comes with immersion of present moment awareness is vastness in itself. Once this happens, like magic the heart opens and is ready to be used for your greater good and for the greater good of those around you. In fact, there isn’t a limit on how far greatness can go. Having an open heart can change your entire world! You are now willing to lose a life that you’ve known and become accustomed to, in order to gain the life that flows abundantly from the unmerited source of the unknown, the universe – God. 

Life blissfully and effortlessly escorts you throughout your days.  Love fills your mind, heart and soul with every rise and fall of the sun, moon and stars. Love and bliss now fire the flame of your existence. You are now ready to take on and change the world with the beautiful soul you hold! 

What your eyes now perceive is love. The magic field of the unknown, now uncovers wisdom to you, in your presence. The old thought pattern that life is here to cause harm no longer dictates or has control over your actions or emotions. You now realize; it is this type of thought process that fuels condemnation and dysfunction. And this, is what helps energize humanity’s demise. Holding the belief that life is against you, is in fact dishonesty at its highest form and steals your happiness away. Life is here to support you and guide you. Not to harm you. 

Life is full of joy and simply requires one’s trust and understanding in order to fully enjoy and uncover their place here on earth. Walk the road of the unknown and feel the beauty and blissfulness that supports you with each step you take. Simply from following the road of the unknown. Be blessed. 

A question was posed to me on Quora today and the question was, have I ever asked myself, “Why me?” – My response was yes; I have asked myself “Why me?”  – I now ask myself, “Why not me?”

When I think back to when I’ve asked myself, “Why me?” I was in a space where I felt powerless to make any solid changes. Asking myself that question only helped me to trade my inner power for victimization of self. Placing myself in a victimized mental state with repetitive closed ended questioning drained me of my energy. It’s not that I desired to think like this or feel this way, but I honestly didn’t know how to think any differently. It was very hard for me to create the life I wanted while continuing to think in the same way. I got fed up and decided to ask the question a different way. I began asking the question in a way that helped position me to open up my mind in order to perceive things in a way that worked for me, not against me. 

Changing the way that I asked this question, empowered me to become an active participant in the life that I desired. I started asking myself, “Why not me?” This new style of how I examined the question, positioned me to look at things transparently and in a matter of fact kind of way. In this new space my ability to go from victim to victor happened very quickly for me. When I changed my perception, I changed my life. 

In the event that I am not pleased with my current version of reality, I still ask myself, “Why not me”? I do this because it is imperative that I recognize the role that I play in my life, as well as the lives of others around me. If I need to make changes, so be it. At that point instead of beating myself up or feeling bad about my circumstances, I take action in pursuing the steps necessary for the change I wish to create. In doing so, I enforce the transformation effortlessly. I can choose to be a victim, or I can choose to be victorious in all things. 

“Why not me?”

I’ve learned universal consciousness is in control, not me. Even when I think I know the outcome, truth is, I do not. I must simply wait and see. Life has taught me to always think, feel and hope for the best because doing anything less, will only aid in mental, maybe even physical imprisonment. We all know, focusing on the lows of life, enables low vibrations, causing fearful thoughts which begin to block our vision, engulfing our creativity.  

Love better, think better, do better and feel better is the new motto I wish for all to adapt.

I’ve learned, what I want, I must give, regardless of the expected outcome I‘ve decided to conjure up in my head. Life has taught me to be a master of my thought process, even in my emotions then simply wait with great expectancy, see what life has to offer me!

I’ve learned not to agree with other people’s opinions but to find out what’s true for me, instead. Other people are still learning themselves, learning about life how could they possibly give me a clear picture of me? Fact is, no they cannot. No person, thing or situation has authority over me, unless I decide to make it so, mentally. 

I’ve learned that even when I think things are extremely f*cked up, they’re not. Life’s apparent set backs are just set ups, which prepare us for the greater good that’s truly meant to be brought about, for all of us. My part in this dream called life is simply this, to be present, be aware of how I decide to utilize the energy within me. To be a conscience participant of my creations, not a victim, but a victor of the reality I help to create for myself. 

Life has taught me that the overly prideful will be brought to their knees and we never know if its going to be literal or figuratively, maybe even both. The same thing rings true for the individual who suffers from the “woe is me” syndrome…. if you keep telling life you’re the victim, you will be. We in fact do receive what we believe to be true for us. Yes, we reap what we sow, in other words what we put out will come back, as this is one of many universal laws. 

I have learned giving people authority over your ability to succeed or fail is ultimately a choice. Being angry and bitter causes irritability, cancer and high blood pressure, just to name a few.  You’re only hurting you. Being angry is giving a foothold to a force you don’t want to be a part of, do you?  Focusing on good vibes only can help transform this hurtful thought pattern. 

Life has taught me to keep moving forward and never stop working toward anything I want, never focusing on what I do not. Life has taught me to appreciate each day that’s being offered, as each day is a gift that I gladly accept! As we all know, our next breath is not promised so let’s rejoice and make the most out of life. Feed and focus on only what we wish to create. 

What is an opinion, a thought that can be changed, a view or judgment formed about something not necessarily based on fact or knowledge but based on how we think things should be. What is fact, a thing that is indisputably the case, can’t be argued or altered, such as 5+5+10. Yet we walk around with opinions and view them as facts then often wonder why the life we see is full of turmoil, heartbreak and misery.

Our opinion of ourselves, situations and others have never been helpful to us just a cause of judgment, self-condemnation and harm to the life we all have been given out of love. Opinions are thoughts that often change based on individual social conditioning as well as what we feel currently. So why hold on to the opinions when they are clearly not facts and cause division?

Opinions, the root of all harm; Opinions, the cause of illusion outside and within, fuels hatred and causes us to judge poorly and inaccurately. We judge incorrectly because we don’t have all the facts about any one thing entirely. What we do have is fragments of our own perception of reality, which is usually based on our beliefs and past history.

Opinions who told us we should have them anyway? Are we the Creator or Master of the Universe, of course not; we do however, hold the power within our hearts to get what we give out and this is definitely one of life’s laws. This life law I speak of is called karma therefore judge not, throw those opinions out. Our opinions of others, situations and ourselves will mimic back to us 100 fold each and every time, there is no getting around it. So do yourself a favor, renounce those opinions once and for all!

The trick is this, to acknowledge our opinions and simply surrender them. Clear out the opinions and judgments that feed our minds and hearts entirely. Decide to not hold on to them anymore. Do this by recognizing and acknowledging the opinions you hold and deciding that they no longer benefit you after all. Intention and attention is all that’s needed to make a difference. It is the opinions that cause us to feel separation from the source of all greatness. It’s our opinions that cause us to blame, internalize resentment and be led by un-forgiveness. How would this kind of thinking ever cause happiness within, truth is, it can’t.

Judge NOT lest ye be judged is a powerful teaching in the statement alone. These opinions or should we say judgments have given an illusion of separateness, damnation and fear and guess what, its time to call it quits! We now know better, so we must do better and the only opinion that should be made is this, none. Be a watcher, see things and decide to simply let them go.

Change your mind, how do you ask? I say by simply deciding to do so. Change your mind. Its impossible you say but no, it’s not impossible. All things are possible within you and me. The question is, do you believe it’s possible? Your belief is key. Where there isn’t any belief, there isn’t any power you see. Change your mind it’s for the best. What we create comes from our precepts. Precepts that were learned and accepted by us continue to recirculate and condemn us.  Are we living according to a new or an old belief system? Are your precepts keeping you accepting, loving and understanding or causing strife, condemnation and separation among you? If you’re in a state of unhappiness I say the latter is true.

Change your mind, undue the cruelty of unjust opinions that have been thrown at you. Change your mind and forgive. Forgiveness isn’t for the people who have caused harm to you. Forgiveness frees you from the pain that binds you. So no, forgiveness isn’t for them, it’s for you.  Change your mind, you were made perfect and your job on earth is to love and accept yourself as such knowing you are very much so deserving. The way you live and walk in your purpose is to not allow old precepts steal your joy and focus. Change your mind all things great depend on it.

Listen for the negativity your mind continues to feed you then lovingly redirect those thoughts by replacing them with positive talk. Change your mind by being aware of what it is you’re thinking about then redirect thoughts free of judgment full of acceptance and understanding. Change your mind, create happiness, the lie of being underserving is no good for you. Change your mind from the things you see and create from a state of love and peace. Change your mind from anything that doesn’t benefit to all things that do. Reflect on all things great. When you do this your awareness makes a shift from dormant to awake! The power within you begins to take over for you. Your life has begun to change and you feel a strong desire for more! No longer defeated but now you feel strong! Your focus has gone from negative to positive and all you had to do was change your mind and be diligent at it.

Changing your mind is simply another decision to go in the opposite direction.  Which direction have you decided on? For me, I have chosen to learn to understand, love and accept myself (human nature flaws and all). It definitely feels better and helps me to understand and love outside of myself much better, which in my opinion is the ultimate goal of the universe to love, accept and restore brokenness to ONE.

What have you been creating for yourself thus far? Change your mind, visualize your desires then release your wants to your Creator, you’ve now done your part; this is how you rebuild your trust in the universal flow. Change your mind from negative to positive, its not hard my friend all you need is for your intentions to be clear without judgment or doubt. Change your mind, I promise you can do it. Need some help, I’ll be glad to help you through it.

 

Detach from all expectancy. Allow people to be who they are. Every individual is on their own path of evolution.

When we allow ourselves and other people to freely be themselves while offering acceptance of individuals or circumstances; We do one of the two: 1. Grow in love.  2. Separate in love.

When we decide to grow together in love, relationships and circumstances bring the best out of us, not the worst. Growing in love, we realize there is a continual effort to build one another as well as the relationship. All parties are aware of this and equally participate in the growth of themselves, their relationships and others. There is lightness of flow, happiness that stems from the heart and a willingness to give without expectancy. The relationships provide peace, harmony and unity. The choice to walk in love has been made the key priority.

When we decide to separate in love, we acknowledge the fact that we are not good for one another. The situations or circumstances breed anxiety and fear. The relationship does not promote growth or embody love. There is constant discord and the unwillingness to compromise beyond oneself. Criticism, attack and blame seem constant. However, we don’t judge ourselves or the other parties involved. There is no blame necessary, as we have all played our parts.  The good. The bad. The ugly. We are aware and simply decide we are better off apart, well wishes given. No malice, hatred or bitterness felt. We separate in love, while allowing true fruitfulness of love to take form for others and ourselves.

Awareness of either choice is key. Remember there’s always an effortless flow to what’s supposed to be. In order to allow that flow, you’ve got to move yourself out the way and allow our Creator to dictate what relationships and or circumstances come and go for us. When we allow, we then enable freedom that offers a detachment to the outcomes we have formed for ourselves within. We then no longer feel the need to dictate or control how things take place or unfold outside of us. We simply allow and place our entire expectancy on our Creator, never on a circumstance or an individual.

Decide to make the choice to remain aware our own internal compass, our own continual growth. Decide to allow things to take shape naturally. Decide to drop feelings of animosity, blame and bitterness. As all these emotions come from an unwillingness of acceptance, to what we think or how we feel things should have been. When we attempt to control the outcome of circumstances or relationships we imprison ourselves emotionally and mentally.

    Let go. Be fee. Allow others to do the same damn thing. Repeat! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do I not take offense when I am filled with words, actions and thoughts from the past? How do I learn to love, when the life I have lived, so full of abandonment, addictions and at times even hatred from those who claim to love and support me throughout my existence? What was the meaning of the experiences after all? To avoid love or live in pain either choice is one in the same.

How do I continue to do what’s right – I’ve been taught that life is supposed to be a fight. Now I see I have been misguided, entirely. God said his yoke was easy to carry, burdens light. So why do I feel as though I need to fight? I don’t actually. There aren’t any fights other then the wars created within me, stemming from negative thoughts I have decided to carry.  If I simply let it all go would there be any controversy, it simply would not be.

How and why do I fight to remain in control, control of everything outside of me? I realize this type of thinking is pure insanity. We are to work on things we can change; allow the rest to take form and be shaped by life’s universal energy. So what can I actually control? I can control me! I decide to take control by deciding not to focus on or judge things that’s happening outside of me, but instead do my part to transform my current version of reality. But how to do that is the key and that is to begin by transforming thoughts of fear, anger and hatred to acceptance, freedom and genuine trust in my creator.

I am aware that this type of trust that I speak of can only come from my spirit, my heart. I can control my emotions based on what my spirit tells me, not what my mind thinks it knows. I can control who and what I allow to affect my energy. This is where my work is to be done.

How do I remain true to who I know myself to be, if every person around me is trying to change and shape me into what they want me to be? After all, we were born to be unique, grow into whom we were born to be, a magnificent masterpiece filled with an abundance of love given to circulate more of.

The Lesson: Learn to love in order to dim the pain. Hurt people generally hurt other people way more then they likely know. Love trumps hate but very few people practice love, but would rather argue, disagree and make that their ultimate truth. Closing off to their core, their nature and this is to love, unite and create abundance of everything desirable, everything lovable, everything true within you.

Fact is this – until we change the cycle of hatred, anger and violence we recreate what we hate, as opposed to putting out flames by deviating from the fuel that adds to the flame.  In order to produce what I love, I’ll simply make the shift from the insanity of trying to control things outside of me to working on what’s inside of me and putting on God’s armor daily! (Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV)
