Some people are going to leave a mark on this world…I’ll probably leave a stain!;-)
There comes a time in your life when you finally get it… When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks, and you hear a voice inside your head that cries out—- ENOUGH!
Enough screaming, fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes you begin to look at the world from a new prospective. This is your Awakening!
It is time to stop hoping and waiting for something, or someone, to change or for happiness to come galloping over the next horizon. You come to terms with the fact that there aren’t always fairytale endings and that any guarantee of the common situation “happily ever after” must begin with you! Who knows it may even end with you!
Then a sense of serenity is born of Acceptance!
Your way through the “reality of today” rather than holding out for the “promise of tomorrow.” You realize that much of who you are, and the way you navigate through life is, in great part, a result of all the social conditioning you’ve received over the course of a lifetime. And you begin to sift through all the nonsense you were told,how you should look,how much you should weigh,what you should wear,how you should behave,why one must be Fidel,the importance of family and what you must do for them etc etc…the list is endless.
Slowly you begin to open up to new worlds and different points of view. And you begin reassessing and redefining who you are and what you really believe in. And you begin to discard the doctrines you have outgrown, or should never have practiced to begin with.
You accept the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will love, appreciate or approve of who or what you are… and that’s OK… they are entitled to their own views and opinions. You come to terms with the fact that you may not be a perfect human being. So you stop trying to compete with the image inside your head or combating over how you compare.
Then you take a long look at yourself in the mirror and you make a promise to give yourself the same unconditional love and support you give so freely to others.
Then a sense of confidence is born of Self-approval.
Please stop maneuvering through life merely as a “consumer” hungry human,merely obtaining and accumulating… Please discover that the joy and abundance you seek, grows out of the giving, creating & contributing rather than obtaining & accumulating.There comes a time in your life when you finally get it!!!… and you hear a voice inside your head that cries out—–ENOUGH!
