It was interesting watching people attempt to lose themselves, their money, their problems and their inhibitions to the point of hurting themselves all because of a wee little city in the desert. Why allow yourself to sweep that many problems under the table? Why let yourself repress feelings, desires, fears, etc? Why do that just so you can sort of lose your marbles, up-chuck your dignity, and, sometimes your lunch, when there’s always been an alternative? Just be you. Just be authentically, unapologetically you, so that you can enjoy that in excess.
This isn’t about politics… This isn’t about the economy… This isn’t about social class… This isn’t about religion… This is about the liberation of the spirit. This is about you and us as the individual, powerful, infinite beings we are, realizing and utilizing our power to say “yes”, or “no”. And, realizing that those two words are powerful, and are challenged everyday by those who would have your power for themselves. But, in order for ANYONE to have your power, YOU have to give it to them.
A soul truly expressing freedom is like a bright star in darkness. It beckons other stars to ignite and shine their own light. No two are alike–the color, the shape, the vibration will all be unique. And, yet they share the knowing that they are stars. When all stars are shinning their light–the darkness of oppression ceases to exist. And, yet, in freedom, there is a knowing that there is enough room for all stars to shine.
You may think I’m asking you a silly question. But, I assure you, I am not. Have you had the pleasure of meeting yourself? Have you had a true introduction, and deep conversation with yourself? I think we take ourselves for granted quite a bit. We assume that just because we are inside our own bodies, and lives all the time, that we truly know ourselves. And, a lot of time that isn’t the case.
World Server– that’s what I am at my core. The way I look a the world hasn’t changed, so much as it has become refined. I’ve always thought that the medium of art could be used as a way to empower, educated and inspire people. I look at random things, people and sometimes nothing and see…divinity. I feel the sacredness in pretty much all things. I’m sure we’ve all had those experiences at one time or another. But, I’ve always tried to figure out how, how can we spread the word on honoring the divinity within us?
So, are you having a good time? Are you? I am… It occurred to me today, that my life is such a wonderful adventure. And, while I have many a soul to be thankful for my life be so great, the ultimate thanks goes to… me! I have moments like now, and days like today where I get the chance to indulge in reflection. And, I look at where I’ve been, and how I got to this now moment. So, many decisions made, so many people met, so many goal reached, and… yet, I still look forward to more.
