Truths and Paths

Suffering … it happens to us all. The causes are many, perhaps it is a desire for something, and an attachment to getting what is perceived as a want or need. In order to ease this suffering, a change is needed, a change in the ideas of what we want, or need. The method of this change is in the eightfold path.

Eight fold path

I love being around people who create a spark in my mind. I walk away from meetings such as the most recent, and my thoughts gravitate to what is happening in my world … in day to day life.

I am grateful, for it is these moments that provide an expansion, a possibility for my “box” to get larger.

There is a lot of talk on remaining grounded, it is difficult to do so. The world seems to be in chaos, it is a reflection of the hearts of humanity.

Working to bring calm to our own awareness will allow a peaceful flow of energies to join us in the outside world. It all begins in our heart, moves to the mind, and comes forth in action.

Message of the Sabian symbol

The sabian symbol of the Full Moon is “Obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders”. The message of the sabian symbol is: sometimes you have to assert your values, your truth, even if you have to face the consequences of your decision, no matter the cost. You have to stay true to yourself, no matter what. This is the ultimate freedom. And the only one we really have.

“One can take away everything from a human being, but no one can take away the ability to choose our attitudes towards the circumstances in which we find ourselves.”

 

I Will Not Live A Lie

“Stop it!” he exclaims. “I want the very best for you” he says.

Authority_1.jpgHe asks that I stop talking, that I stop being involved with the things that matter to me, he thinks that there are those who will believe me to be a little whacky, a little crazy. He states, “I don’t know what you’re doing … preaching, getting into politics, just stop it.”

I told him that what he is asking me to do, is stifle myself, to not be fully what I believe in. And why? Because someone else might take a negative opinion to what I think important? For my bringing attention to those things that matter to me?

One thing I have found in the 5 decades of life is that although I may try to please people, it is impossible. For forty years I tried to mold myself to what others considered right and good. I have been disappointed for the most part during that forty years because after time, even those who I worked so hard to please, left, or decided one day that what I gave was not good enough, not what they wanted.

For the last ten years I have worked very hard to shed the need to please. I would rather speak the truth as I see it, live fully what I believe, and practice daily kindness … not only to others … but to myself.

Authority_2.jpgI would rather live knowing that I am authentic and true to me, and to my connection with Divine Nature, than attempting to please mankind. No … the right ones will show up, and those who do not care for it will fall away … just as it should be.

I will not live a lie, or hamper myself any longer in the hopes others might accept me and give me benefit. My truth has always been enough for me.

Authority_4.jpgI am a hard worker. I am good at tasks I put forth energy in to, I gain knowledge and therefore speed and accuracy in all that I do. I am confident and do not rely on the approval of some man or “authority” to bump up my self worth and value.

I am free to be me. Fully. Unapologetically. With authority, I live this life. I do not need another’s permission to do so. Regardless of their title, perceived status, or power.

ALL humanity has the SAME personal power, and responsibility, to be all they can be. When this is known and embraced, ALL will practice best behaviors for the benefit of self, family, and network.

Permission to do so is not needed.

3 Stages of Truth

Published May 7, 2017 by tindertender

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
 Arthur Schopenhauer

How is it the “norm” has been so engrained in the minds of people that when one veers away, or questions it’s reality they are often met with ridicule and outright attack? Those in denial and who lack the simple openness of consideration will do everything they can to discredit one who is attempting to open doors to further knowledge. Over time, as others become aware of possibilities and perhaps begin to accept that something is off, the ones who previously viciously slandered the verity of another begin to come around also … although they would never consider an apology for previous behavior.

How often do we see this? How often do we DO this?

It is interesting how humanity’s mindset spins, whirling away, thoughts never ending, and often not making any common sense at all.
