Your Experience Matters….

June 30, 2022

How you experience things MATTERS, a LOT.
You matter a lot.
How you feel matters.
How to experience things matters.
What you need matters… and not what you need to be ok… what you need to THRIVE… and those are very different standards.

Our emotions don’t control us, but our needs are meant to be met.
Truths need to be told.
Requests need to be made.
Boundaries need to be set.

How are we ever going to rise the way we are being called to rise when we can’t accept how LOVED and VALUABLE we are?

We call ourselves into greatness, and we also accept where we are and give ourselves what we need along the way.

What is the alternative?
We keep believing we should need so much, keep living half in half out, half exhausted and then expect to embody our true greatness???

First we accept that WE ARE WORTHY OF LOVE.
Then we create a life where that is reflected back to us.
Then we hold it for the world.

Acknowledge it.
Require it.
Receive it.
Bask in the awe of how beautiful it feels in contrast to “I have to figure it all out and make it all happen myself. I must force myself to handle it all.” BLAH. No.

We are where we are, and it’s perfect.
We need what we need to thrive and it’s available.
We are allowed to be human on our way to Legendary.

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)
