I do not know when I wrote these. I suppose I could look at the time stamps, but it doesn’t matter. As down as I am, I still want to uplift all of you with words that uplift instead of downlift. Maybe these can help me help you help yourselves. Take them for what they are. I offer them only from the love inside me. The way to go is up, not further down, because that down can get pretty deep and make the up seem that much further away. It’s hard to get back up there, yes I know, it’s really fucking hard, nearly impossible it seems. So you can either stop, kill yourself, and that be the end of it, or you can keep going, going toward that unknown future here in this 3rd dimensional paradigm. Keep going, just keep going. It’s crucial to just keep going. Somehow, someway, just keep going and get somewhere closer to where you really want to be. We are all in this fucked up situation together. It’s a world where the middle class is being systematically destroyed as the gap between the fractional rich and the majority poor gets wider and wider. It’s no longer a world where one can word hard and get somewhere. Corporate pirates have taken over your governments and are fueling a fire that they hope, in time, will consume 6 out of every 7 of you. It’s cheaper for them to exterminate all of us, rather than everyone keep going. It’s an insane asylum and it’s what we call life. Is it really hell? Could this really be some kind of hell? What is the way out of here? This is no longer fun when everyone is having to scrape to barely squeak by. What do we all do when they take away our right to have a happy life because that’s exactly what they are doing. They are depressing the populous, manipulating, deceiving, using everyone as their own personal experiment. They use drugs, they use doctors, they use a system to … blah, blah, blah. I am not going any further into that tangent now. Yes, of course Im could keep going, but this post is meant to be uplifting, as the title suggests. So have a read at the paragraphs below. As I mentioned in the beginning, I cannot recall when or why I wrote these, but I wanted to share them with all of you. Thanks for reading. Wide eyes open. Love to all.
Life is a gift. Never take it for granted.
What worries you? What sorts of issues trouble your mind? Think about some of things occurring in your life right now that impact you. Now picture someone in some impoverished country. This person is starving, their family dead, they do not know what a home is, or a town, or a community. What kinds of things do you think that person thinks about? What kind of meaning does life have to those who exist in a continuous state of suffering?
Everyone has what they perceive as problems. Many manifest these problems from within to some extent. Menial distractions become melodramas to facilitate that need to feel important, to feel like your personal, individual life is worthy of some notable recognition. Instead of trying to be somebody, why has it become so difficult to be yourself?
This reality you are given is a gift. Do not waste time and take this existence for granted. Do not conflict or deceive, or manipulate those around you for power. Life is not about power. Life is not about the acquisition of the most possession. Life is about altruism, not materialism. Show kindness and compassion to others. Do not allow your life to revolve around negativity. Do not be consumed by your fears. Love everyone and everything. What you do here echoes in eternity. Make the most of your life and always remember that other person somewhere else who has it way worse than you.
Live the life you have imagined.
Do you feel as though you are embodied in a life manifested from your dreams? Most of you will say no. Why is that? What happened in your lives that steered you on a different path? Many fall victim to their environment. Many allow circumstance to dictate their situations. Many think that too much time has gone by to recapture any hope of living the life they imagined to some extent. Seems easier to blame anything else but ourselves, doesn’t it? Do not lose faith in yourself, your world is what you make of it. The power to change lies within you. Empower yourself to better yourself.
There is no better time than now, right now, to make that greater change to enrich your personal well-being. There is no need for any one great experience, one great moment of self-realization, just become aware, simply become conscious. Become conscious of the world you have created around yourself, become conscious of your role, your purpose for being. Become conscious of the love inside you and what really makes you truly happy. Accept responsibility for the choices and actions that got you where you are. Believe in yourself to make the changes necessary to create the life you want, then make it so, make your life what you have always imagined. Today IS the first day of the rest of your life. Do not take the time you still have for granted.
The Pain Of Yesterday
Is The Strength Of Today
Those times in your life when tragedy strikes, when sadness befalls you for some unfortunate reason, those times are truly difficult. You may feel lost, helpless to the will of a cruel world whose grace is often awful and seemingly without logic. We all know that tragedy happens, comes to us all, at one time or another, several times in fact in all over a long lifespan. Do you let that sorrow overcome you, cursing God and God’s plan, shouting about themes such as injustice and wrongness? Part of living in this life is to learn to accept dis-attachment from those persons and pets and things you lose. Do not get mad, do not let the anger that stems from the fear of your own mortality become you.
Remember the loss, remember the pain of the past. Look hard at it, study the habits of this strong emotion, be an observer rather than participant. When you are calm from the sorrow, when you can truly accept loss, you find that that emotion of sorrow gives you strength for the now, the today. You learn to not dwell on the sadness of it and just focus on the joy and happiness, and you can keep that alive inside of you. Yes, there are things from our past’s that hurt, many worse than others. It is gone though, passes, the past has passed, never to be experienced again. There is no way to change it, so do not waste time stuck in regret and sorrow. Use the memories of the past to help you make more harmonious decisions so that your future is a bright one. Let go of that pain, look forward, toward that bright future, illuminated by the inner light that exists inside you.
