Desperate Wanting & The Freedom to BeYou 'want' so desperately, so that you can be Free. You feel that if you got what you wanted, if Life became the Life you think it should be, then somehow it would make you feel whole and unburdened.
Do we see this? That what is being sought after in our movement as a human being, is the manipulation of Life and others, with the hope that we ourselves can be with Freedom; a Freedom where we are no longer a victim, a Freedom where we do not feel restricted, condemned, or unloved.
This is the only thing you seek.
And I cannot find the words, nor do they exists, to adequately describe the Truth that this Freedom is within you right now.
There is not a better Life, or Self, that exists somewhere in the future; you will always be left with what you are, and what you are has always remained the same since birth.
A world Free of poverty, will not rescue your soul. A world Free of hatred, will not heal the hate you have for yourself. A world Free of fear, will not end the fear you claim as your own.
Maybe you have just confused the point of living. Maybe you have become blinded to the truth that life is not about become something more, but it is about recognizing what you already are.
Life as it is now, must be as it is, in order for You to see what you are. All of these experience which we despise so intensely, are really your perfect creation; they are the gift.
Death, Disease, and Suffering, are of equal value to Life, Health, and Joy. The rain is equal to sunshine, the valley equal to the mountain, the north equal to the south: all things giving life each other, all things breathing in unison.
Without Death, there would be no Life; without rain, there would be no sunshine, without the north, there would be no south.
Your experience here on Earth, is temporary. It is simply a school ground to bloom, to unfold, but in Truth no one becomes harmed. For it is only a temporary play of the divine.
Rest in the deep truth that this moment is all you have. Give up the silly quest to fix a self that exists tomorrow, and simply be what you are now.
Discover Life as it is, rather than trying to fix a school ground which was never broken.
You are exactly where you are suppose to be.
All is well.
I love these posts from Tiger Singleton and am working very hard on getting to a place in my heart where I can enjoy and live for every moment. I will be sharing his links and beautiful words much more.
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
