Syncronicity: report to reality
Syncronicity 2 – ET
Reflection on Vday
The mind can be a cruel trickster. The present, the moment your in in this instant is a tricky thing. Because although it’s all we have, our actions right now are governed by two other points in time on either side of it mentally. Our state of being in the present, is directed by both the memory of moments that no longer exist, which we call the past and the isolation of a few infinite possible moments that don’t exist yet called futures. No one wins every prize they set out for and thats definitely ok, the problem is that its immensely difficult to wrap ones mind around the fact that a failure has no connection to future success or failure. We cling to current circumstances out of fear of repeating past failures even when we don’t know what we are doing. So then this leaves our present at the mercy of your minds projection of our future as well. When more closely examined maybe the fear is more based in what people think, other’s perception of us in the context of judging our failures. In any case I realize now that I have found myself perplexed watching this situation play out in my life and the life of others many times. A pattern that like many other divisive mental pattern that present during ones life cycle when seen for what it is dissolves… if you want it to of course. This moment is all we have and I’m deciding to never squander another one of my right nows. Failures, fuck ups and snags are a part of the journey and tools for learning. I’ll never let the prospect stifle my expression again, because the truth is when I think about it anything I’ve done worth doing I was a little bit scared before I did it and didn’t even remember the fear after.
This was posted by someone I follow on Instagram and I use it as an affirmation, it feels relevant in this moment…
I am a creative limitless spirit.
I create space for the things I want in my life.
I recognize and seize my opportunities.
Peace and pleasure.
Only this moment
What this post sounds like to me ↓↓
Happy February 14th, and happy full moon! In honor of this super commercialized day alleged to be about love, we refer to as valentines day I thought I would hammer out some of my thoughts about the subject. I have been seeing both vday hate and vday love all over social media today and I guess it kind of got me thinking about where I stand.
So on the one hand I see how valentines day is a complete crock. The holiday seems to have come out of nothing really, I did a quick search on the origins and this was confirmed to me. Something about embellished stories about saints being the basis and for me once the church is indicated as a source of something it loses cred it might have had anyway. At this point the holiday is about making hallmark, russell stover, and the florist of your choice richer while we scramble to make gestures. Theres definitely nothing wrong with people securing themselves financially but lets call a spade a spade and people buy all these things out of obligation and societal pressure.
On the other hand I am in love with love! Gestures of genuine affection is something I have no doubt there could never be enough of in this dimension. We are constantly fighting for balance, our rights and freedoms, just to be ourselves whether we are aware of it or not. Love is the one thing that makes it all a little easier to swallow, Mary Poppins’ spoonful of sugar to our battles and lessons if you will. I’m still wrapping my head around what it really means to love someone, as I think most of us are. At this point in this life cycle I believe it consists of caring about another’s well being and being willing to protect and ensure it. It indicates loyalty and the willingness to strip yourself bare to that person showing them everything you are even the things you don’t like. It’s giving another a home in your presence, and all of this while requiring nothing from them, just for what they are. I believe true love is unconditional and the kind that comes with perimeters and based on incentives is an illusion.
In my opinion the sentiment I just described is insulted by timed and calculated gestures. Cramming your demonstration of such a huge feeling into a day is like stuffing an elephant into a thimble so if your able to manage this your love is probably not big enough for the object of your affection, even if they are tiny :-). I guess it all boils down to individuals and in the end I’m still neutral, I’m never opposed to a sweet nothing from a honey on valentines day or giving them, because when in rome… But everyday should be a day to demonstrate our love to the ones we feel it for because no one knows when this cycle will end for them.
May this find you glowing with love
