Taking the Real Journey

Something I’ve once said before, that seems fitting to all that surrounds me…

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are, who you really are… You trade your reality for a role, your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel and in exchange you put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until it’s a personal revolution, on a personal level. It’s got to happen inside first. You can take anyone’s political or personal freedom and you can’t hurt them… unless, you take away their freedom to feel. That can destroy a person. That kind of freedom can not be granted. No one can win it for you, but YOU.

That’s what real love amounts to, letting a person be who he/she really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending or what you may call performing (trying to impress). You get the chance to love your pretense… It’s true, we are all locked in an image, an act and the sad thing is, others get so used to their image; they grow attached to their masks. We love our chains. We forget all about who we really are… and if you try to remind us, we hate you for it, we feel like your trying to steal our most precious possession.

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, and most times it my be true, others are false. Love hurts, feelings are disturbing. Society is taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can one deal with love if they are afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. Others try to hide their pain, but they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like an old school radio (strangely put but true). You feel your strength in the experience of pain; it’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling, feelings are a part of you… your own reality. If we feel ashamed of them and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. Don’t do it, stand strong. My greatest fear is to be just another statistic. I say, keep your role, exchange your act and find that revolution that creates only the best.

Let this awareness be with us for the length of our journey…

    if there’s any advice I’m going to apply for the rest of the month, possibly the year, it has to be this line .. It’s poetry but the real deal in an easy to manage dosage .. where have you been all my life with this point of view? what is it only now, 3 years later that I’m being an active observer here? It’s only right that I read on because contained herein is reassurance that reality is self-crafted and what can be accomplished is limitless .

    I am on a new journey too…..I believe I am returning Home …So. California….??? Of course I am on the ultimate soul journey too that just has had many many many detours….working on my destination path and re- route whenever needed! I enjoy the wild flowers and cactus plants on the rest stops of life!
