It is okay to be on the verge of tears, in a place not fit for them. Not many places in our world are dedicated to crying, so you must take the spaces as they arrive. Knowing that anyone who judges your emotional out pour, is holding a secret tear too. People will be mad at you for not helping them uphold their illusion of keeping it together. Compassion is contagious. Some see your tear, and remember that they too need to cry, and in that particular moment, they may not want to remember, they may not want to embrace the collective wound. Now here you come, all heart on your sleeve like. Your nakedness makes people uncomfortable. It is okay to make people uncomfortable. It doesn’t take much. Did you get into how crowded this place is yet? We were bound to bump into your tears sooner or later. Every drop is perfect. And I know you know, just like I know, tears do dry, wounds do heal, and life – though it never ended – somehow begins again. Have a perfect day. Remember that it is your perspective that makes it so. Aho!
You have to take responsibility for the loneliness you feel by deciding to get over the fear of rejection – the fear of what other people might think about who you are. It is a fear that dissolves with action. What is the action? Even as your heart quivers and your mind races with reasons to honor your self-defense mechanisms, you must push through and reach out to connect. There are people your heart is calling you to meet, to be around, to grow with and learn from, recognize that and act from that space. Remember that your life in this body is extremely short, so don’t waste your time with the almost of anything. Don’t sit there and imagine so much that you almost know what it’s like to have an experience, no – go forth and have that experience and grow from it. Don’t settle for imagining what its like to be with a group you want to be around. Get up, and go be around them, or him, or her and shake off the shackles of loneliness that you feel. Loneliness is an illusion created by a complex mind that has forgotten the interbeingness of all things. Truly, we are never alone, even the air knows your there. Have a great day!

Loads of Love,
How do I find my path in life?
What if you started with what has already found you? There are clues all around us. We can spend so much of our time looking for a reason for being, but being is already its own reason, and within you is the possibility of all that you came here to be effortlessly. You have attracted everything you need to take your next step, all around you. So take time to be who you are, where you are. Take time to shake off the definitions you have allowed the world to tag you with.
Labels exemplify the limitation of words, wisdom exemplifies the boundless nature of the soul. Its true beauty is ineffable. No words can completely describe the magnificent expression of life that you are. Leave not another to define you, as others are still trying to define themselves with much advice to give in the smoke and mirrors of life. Because the advice of many do not come from their acknowledged connection to the one soul, it is often misleading when it comes to helping another find purpose. Also, because we imagine that finding our path would be a difficult thing, the idea becomes a self fulfilling prophecy of dreams that seem to never walk close to us. However, it is we who refuse to walk next to them, due to a lack of silent peaceful inquiry. Opening the heart and allowing love for yourself to flow through is the most important action one can take in that regard. Who can manifest their fullest potential while hating a part of the sacred being they have been created as? There are many clues to your purpose in life all around the environment you choose to live in. Decipher and discern.
There is a naturalness to discovery that becomes impossible when surrounded by constant distraction. To be constantly stimulated and incapable of hearing the voice within, is likened to the marathon runner who expects to finish the race running the opposite direction of the finish line. In such a scenario, the fastest runner may be on the right path, but running in a completely different direction can never bring one closer to their goal.
Slow down, allow the soul to whisper through the heart, let it point out things to you that you have been afraid to see. Let it show you the pains you buried with your gifts. Run within and meditate on the beauty that you are. Reach the tip of that branch, ready to leave the nest of self doubt behind, and then fly. Better yet, Roar!
