I Am Still Alive!

I am taking a little break from blogging, obviously. It’s been about ten days since I last posted. If you’re following along with my work at all, then you know that I came to a significant, and terrifying, realization recently.  I have some nasty shit that I need to clear from my psyche before I can actually move forward spiritually. And so, I’ve just spent the last week and a half reflecting, meditating, and writing for myself.

I’ll share two ideas here that have come to me:

  1. First, as I was meditating I felt like I received an insight suggesting that pain and happiness are actually the same thing. They are both just energy. It is our interpretation of it as pain that makes it cause suffering.
  2. I know this sounds embarrassingly cliche, but a voice spoke to me, and very plainly instructed me that that love was everything. That loving would lead to enlightenment. That filling myself up with love and giving it freely would keep a steady flow of intense, positive energy coursing through my being. This is the path to happiness.

I did not expect this blog to take me where it has, but I am so grateful for it. I’ll be back to write more as i feel inspired to do so. Thanks for sticking with me!

  1. Finding the vibration of love will definitely bring you closer to who you really are. It’s not always an easy thing to find though, when we’re strongly aware of opposite qualities. I like a feeling of gentleness, its soothing effect can take the edge off things.

    1. It is at least getting me closer to where I want to be. I have struggled with a lot of anger and it’s helping in the process of releasing that.

      How have you been enjoying The Alchemist? I am very curious to hear what you have to say about the original translation.

  2. I don’t really know what to say here but I’m gonna start with, I’m glad you’re still alive. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed getting to know you through your writing, and am sorry you’re going through a lot emotionally right now. You seem like you’re on a path that works for you, so I hope you make your way forward at a pace that’s right for you. If you haven’t read it yet, Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach is a great book and may help to provide direction for some of the feelings that you’re having. I can’t recommend it enough. It ‘s a game changer for your heart and personal growth, and I can attest that it really helped, and continues to help me. Hugs, J
