I Was Missing It All

May 3, 2023

I thought I understood what I was being conditioned to be and breaking out of it…. But it took getting the result to see it for what it was…

The conditioning we are undergoing and being influenced to BE, is…..
to look perfect, have all the things and show the world we did it…. this what makes you valuable in our society….

Yet…. ALL of the people I’ve met who have done this, including myself… have loads of stress still, and if not more than ever. (There are numerous studies showing that after $40k a year, more money brings zero amount more happiness.) It’s not about having the money or not it’s about needing more and more and more. Spending then needing more. The sorry that more makes us more valuable.

We are being conditioned to believe that more wealth and more physical beauty bring us joy… and yet it brings the most amount of comparison, stress, insecurity, fear, and disconnection from our loved ones.

It just does.
Tell me it’s not true?

Maybe we don’t let people see that it’s true…
Maybe we numb out pretty good and don’t feel it all.
Maybe we think that forever striving for the goals isn’t suffering (yet it’s a feeling of never… ever… arriving)

Maybe some things bring temporary joy… a good hair day lol. A good weight month. A good money year.

But the stress remains.
The fear carries on.
The insecurity remains.

We think we see the conditioning yet still we strive to be IG-worthy… and don’t even notice.

We feel less than her, and don’t notice what’s BEHIND THAT, we just criticize ourselves.

We feel stress to produce more, and don’t even notice what’s behind that… we just push ourselves harder or numb out to avoid the pressure.

It’s not you, it’s conditioning…
Conditioning is behind it.

We are beautiful as we are, ALL humans… but how often does that feel true? Why not?

We are ALL the same, no matter the politics, the religion, the country…

We are worthy to be happy now… as it all is, without one drop more.

And our worth has absolutely nothing what so ever to do with looks, money, followers, success, things….

And unless we are LIVING that truth, we have work to do… not to BE better but to FEEL better.

To break out of the never ending race…..
Because there is nowhere to get to in this race… it is nothing more than a waste of precious life.

It’s PURE MAGIC that we get to be human! I mean, my gosh…. What were the chances? To be here on this beautiful and mysterious ball of earth… and then to waste it chasing and stressing?

What if the most valuable thing you could ever BE for others is the very same thing that would bring you immense joy?

I’m 100% certain it is.

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
