23rd April 2010 - Desperate times.


I've decided to get a bit more proactive in my aspirations and goals currently, I've had enough of "where" I am in my living and how I'm doing it. That may sound glum but it's not meant that way.

I'm happy enough, but I still feel so far away from reality and truth in relation to my nature and what needs to be done in life. Happiness from comfort isn't enough.

I want truth....

I need truth. 

Our wants generally are so far away from what we truly need. I've had enough of obligation, give me necessity.

I am posting to kick start a change, or, to get the ball rolling a bit faster.

Piece by piece I want to de-construct my life. break it down, go to real basics, and then rebuild, being true to myself and the the environments I am in.

I believe our society and general culture to be losing grasp of what is important to us, as human beings and as children of the earth. I can no longer be a part of this by how I'm living.

We are born to grow, learn, live, love and share.

I've made a start on things over the past few years but in essence it's not enough, or fast enough for my liking/needs and I am going to get it sorted. 

I've been learning so much over the past year, searching for truth, trying to love those around me, trying to shake the fear away, and doing what I can, with my limited experience, to help others to do the same. 

We are all on a journey, we are all learning, we are all in essence, children of this life, this world and the Universal Power that fills and unites us.

I have learned to be less hard on myself, and to trust the process of life. I have become much more reflective in order to make the most out of my experiences, so I can share them with others, to help themselves. It was a part of why I started this blog back in 2006 although back then, perhaps I didn't see it's use.

So, over the next few posts, I'm going to share where I feel I've come, where I'm at, where I need to go etc; I hope, sharing these things with you can help. Feel free to challenge me and my thoughts, adding to our collective experience, learning to live and love in this life, a little better. 

Give me only what I need, and let me shed the rest. Time to trim the fat, and get comfortable the freedom, living the truth gives us. 

I'm far to used to this prison and the shackles of my greed.

It's got to start with what I have, and my attachments to these things, I believe myself to have little right to have these things while there are others on their life journey lacking. 

Love does not look like my life right now. 

I'll leave you with two quotes which were shared through love to help us help each other.

"Most good things have been said far too many times and just need to be lived." Shane Claiborne

"My life is my message." Mahatma Gandhi

We can all be so much more.

I will keep this blog updated and relevant to this cause/ journey. I am doing this because I believe living what we believe in to be right, not for my own gain, not for my own feeling of worth, or because I'm blindly following some thought or any other excuse you can think of.

I am trying to do and live what I believe is right.

Peace and Love.
