Yes! How do you live your life? actually, how do you love your life? That’s the question I am asking you. In effect, that’s the question I am asking myself.
How am I living my life?
Am I living my life in fear, hiding behind my own fear of living a truly happy life?
Am I allowing my heart to make the decisions, and guide me to where I need to be?
Am I conforming to societal rules, square peg in a square box? Live here, work this type of job, drive this kind of car, dress in these kinds of clothes, have a family, with 2.3 children…
… I have always rebelled against rules, especially those rules that told me WHO I was! These rules, they’ve always felt so superficial, restrictive, and I saw those rules building a terrifyingly “sheeple” society. I couldn’t name it then, I had no idea about sheeple, about the heard of unfulfilled zombies that seem to populate the world. Half dead half alive automatons that get up in the morning, go to a boring and unhappy JOB, come home to a society prescribed recipe for life: suburban house, 2 car garage, family, mortgage, car payments, credit card payments, 2 week vacation per year. If you believe that that’s the way to live, please stop reading now!

WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!!! I’m cringing at the thought of it, and all those memories from when I lived that cookie cutter life are flooding back in… what a sad little life of followers and brain dead people we are building. I did live that life, for about 5 years, and I think that those were the darkest years of my life. It was the only time in my life when I did not get to do what I wanted to do, when I was stranded amongst pickup trucks, shotguns, humidity and heat… surrounded by a heavy regulated, heavily constrictive religion… I have to be grateful for those days because those were the days that again put me on my path of following my heart, following my smile, following my happiness…

When people are telling me: “This is something you cannot do”, that’s when I go and say to myself: “I can do that, of course I can do that! WHY NOT?” Those others are not me, and are not used to follow their heart, instead they’re following a set of rules that can only constrict, restrict, impede creation, self expression, and a spiritual growth.

Let fear go!

Stop listening to the nay sayers, they’re afraid and jealous that you can see this bright future and they can’t.

Be bold in your life. Live the life you’re meant to live.

If you’ve wanted to explore, go explore. If you’ve wanted to see where your spiritual life will take you, allow yourself the journey.

All I am trying to convey to you is that, in my experience, people bound by rules that tell you WHO you are WHAT you are and WHAT you should do tend to live a very unhappy existence. Liberate yourself.

Free yourself to live in your TRUTH, in your LIGHT, in your LOVE! Let that resonate within, and see the difference between where you are now, and where you could be if you were to live in your TRUTH, LIGHT, LOVE.

Relinquish fear… what’s the worst that could happen? There is nothing that can destroy who you are! You are unique, and you are a part of all of us, a part of this amazing universe, an integral part of everything around you. We are all ONE! So, live your truth, live your light, and live in your love. Love yourself, love your neighbor, love your enemy because he’s trying to teach you about separation, love your parents because they’re trying to teach you about attachment, love your children they’re teaching you about growth, love your friends they’re trying to teach you about who you are, and again, LOVE YOURSELF! It seems like such a forbidden thing in our society, being good to ourselves, being gentle, being loving towards ourselves. Learning self love is the toughest thing we sometimes have to do, because we just don’t know how. nobody’s taught us that.

So start gently, and mimic the feelings you have towards you best friend, and point those towards yourself. TRY IT! don’t just read this, try it. Slow deep breath in then a slow deep breath out, allow yourself to feel the love for your best friend, and inhale slow deep breath, and let that feeling of love flood your body… again… and again…and again…

and that’s where I leave you,
with truth, love and light to you all.
