Life is not Hard or Simple: life is….


Woman-with-key

We have a tendency of saying that life is hard, simple, great, etc. However, if we look closely at what we imply we realize that we are referring to our experiences. When we perceive our experiences as good or great, we claim that life is good or great. When our perceived experiences are unpleasant we conclude that life is hard or unpleasant. However, if we refrain from defining and perceiving experiences and just witness them as they are, we realize that life is. It is a force within us that I also believe is the spark of God within us. Even when our bodies are ill, as long as we still have breath in our lungs with our hearts still beating, life is. And yes, in life there are experiences however life in its totality is not experience. One can be inwardly totally empty without experiencing anything yet still be alive. Therefore, it is my conclusion that life is not good, bad, tough or easy. It just is if we do not entangle it with our experiences. This also means that we can choose to accept all situations when they occur and refrain from defining them or dictating how they should have been. When a situation manifests, we can observe it as is. Even if we need to take action there’s no law in the universe that demands of us to feel sad, stressed, perturbed, or generate any other negative emotion in order to take action. We can take action from a place of pure witnessing with unwavering faith that what has to be done shall be done.

By understanding that life is a distinct force within us provided and supported by only its giver, God…Creator, we also understand that without life, there is no experience. Life happens first, and then experience follows. With that in mind we can be grateful for what’s truly important…life. We can be in awe of this gift called life regardless of our perceived experiences.

If you doubt this notion and have concluded that indeed your life is hard, take time to inwardly search for what this “hard life” looks like visually. If you do this exercise earnestly you will witness the mind leading you to a memory or memories of your experiences.

In the meantime, I hope that you can just be grateful for life, as a distinct force and gift from the Creator, God. 

Endless love

Are You 100% Free to Be What You Want to Be?


Freedom 6

Some philosophers have argued that we are not totally free to be who want to be. What we think is freedom is merely being free to express ourselves as predetermined by our earlier and continuous programming. Due to the fact that being free means being happy and content with wherever and whatever one is, we tend to mistake settling for what is available, for authentic contentment. We forget that if we are unaware of other realities we have nothing to compare with. As such we regard our present reality as the real deal. Furthermore, because we are deeply programmed to believe and be a certain way, we conclude that this is the best we can be or do. We settle for beliefs  and lives that are not organically our own. 

self-limiting

For instance, as I child, I was told, and I believed that if a woman rode a bike they would never get married. Because riding a bike compromised being feminine. Today, I’m still struggling to learn how to ride a bike–upon discovering that getting married has nothing to do with riding a bike. 🙂 
Limiting-Beliefs

That’s one of many beliefs that I was exposed to as a child, and I have had to examine, question and change my beliefs every so often in order to discover if they are regressing or progressing me.

The question is: Which of your beliefs are promoting your life?

Note that it takes more than wishful thinking to examine all our beliefs in order to originate beliefs and ways of living that are organically our own. Note that everytime someone starts questioning the general status quo, they are isolated, rejected if not killed. They are thrown out of the crowd. Think about people like, Martin Luther King, Jr, Jesus, the Christ–to mention a few.

So, if you want to create a reality that is organically your own, you have to step away from the crowds, follow your bliss and inner guidance, question everything, be open to everything, yet attached to nothing. You also have to be willing to be alone in order to find your authentic-self.  However, the benefits are inexhaustible.
