Free the innocent child within

New Year’s Resolutions 2015

Life is just too short to waste. Nobody knows when it will be taken away so better to live without regret, better to try your best than not, better to blindly believe in the good instead of accepting that it’s all bad, better to know and like yourself rather than a version created solely out of fear that you were never (and won’t ever be) good enough, better to live each day as if it were indeed your last without fear, without anger, without hate, without chaos, frustration or confusion….

New year’s resolutions 2015:
1. Be myself and let others see Me
2. Let go of all learned negative thoughts, behaviours, habits, words and deeds for they don’t belong to me
3. Live in the present
4. Feel the joy of gentleness and contentment
in every moment
5. Smile with my eyes and heart
6. Share the positive Truth
7. Laugh and play everyday

Now I Know

I dropped the penny
And I broke the glass,
I guess I never really listened in class.
I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I didn’t want it to come true,
I didn’t want to be just like you.

I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I was not a fool, I was just afraid.
But no one knew, they could not see me,
I was not OK,
I couldn’t take the madness of it all,
I was scared to fall.

***********************************************

Confusion and chaos was the name of the game,
I didn’t want to be just the same.
I slowed it down, I hurried up,
It was not enough.
I tried to be something outside of me,
I didn’t know, it wasn’t clear,
I had the fear.

Just to be,
It was not enough,
Over time,
The conditioning had changed my mind.
I forgot what it was all about,
This crazy world had me turned inside out.

I thought if I could just meet a sage,
Who could teach me how to save me from myself.
If I could change, my maze-like mind, negative rhymes,
Everything feeling so out of time.

So I slowed it down,
I took a step back,
I slowly learned how to take a look
At the craziness of my world,
There was a way that I could have it all.

To save myself, from myself,
Life wasn’t really the mess I thought it was.
All I had to do was look inside.
Realise, I am my Child.

I can Feel,
I am anew.
I can Feel,
And that is True.
I can Feel,
It is all I need.
I can Feel,
I know the Truth.

The Earth Is A Pod

The Earth is a pod
And we are its pea-ple,
Like grains of sand
In a vast desert land.
Different colours, shapes and sizes
Each one unique in quality and character.

When aligned hand in hand
A grander scene transpires,
Shifting and flowing on a fair wind,
Alight under stars, the moon and our kind sun.
Mere specks in a universe of possibility
On a journey towards an oasis of Truth.

The Tale of Lost Canyon

There once was a town high up in the mountains and in it lived a thousand people. The people were decent, hard-working folk who lived entirely by the clock, ever watchful and mindful of what they should be doing at certain hours of the day in accordance with the town’s strict customs. One of these prescribed that children, teenagers and even young adults were to be seen and heard at all times. This was to safeguard against them venturing up the treacherous peaks surrounding Lost Canyon, which was strictly prohibited because everyone who had done so vanished when they reached the other side, never to be seen or heard from again.

Lost Canyon terrified the locals. Mothers, fathers and grandparents in particular were constantly filled with dread, and each had their own negative expectations and wild imaginings of what terrors might await their children, who were very curious to know the truth about it all.

Gentle Contentedness

There is a feeling that arises from being in exactly the right place at the right time. Notions of synchronicity are often hard to describe in words, but this visceral feeling I’m alluding to is a simple one, best described in terms of gentle contentedness.

We’ve all felt it, sometimes it’s just a fleeting moment that passes us by, while other times, we feel it in situations that are more  permanent, like the lasting glow of a warm and honest relationship.

All of a sudden you feel at home in yourself, in harmony with your surroundings, enjoying that pure ecstasy of existence. Enveloping you like a warm blanket nesting a newborn child, it is playful and light, the touch of a summer breeze. Giggles rumble from deep in the belly, surfacing without restriction at every opportunity.

The real question is, how do we stay in this blissful state indefinitely? How do we hold on to a harmonious homeostasis of one’s consciousness?

As with most questions in life, the answer lies within you. What led you to this feeling in the first place?

You might just notice that you have been in heightened communion with self, you have not merely listened to that inner voice of eternal truth, you have answered it. You have exchanged with the real you, and in doing so, remembered that you are just as innocent and pure this very moment as you were on your first day of existence on this planet. Each breath we breathe can be like our first – fresh, alive and open to the universe of spontaneous positivity that awaits us all without bias.
