Embracing Life’s Challenges


img_20161201_222205

As I ponder within my thoughts and begin to write. My writing brings me reminiscing or perhaps within thoughts as I pause away from the present moments. I often ponder on being complete in a whole because who can define what really matters in life.

Can a person single handily be complete by the one whom crosses your path? Or do many single handily inspire you to fill life with some sense of belonging. One thing for sure, to feel a sense of completion a person needs to find integrity from within for things we may desire or perhaps long for.

Yet to a sense of self to say “I don’t need anyone to feel complete” is to say we don’t need humans to survive on earth. To be carried through life with a sense of belonging is a fundamental part of who we are.

As I begin to reminisce through time with memories, travel forward with an essence of belonging. Perhaps it might otherwise be daydreaming or dreadful memories that I find myself pulled into without recognizing at times what stands in plain view.

Staying present in the moment can at times be harder than it looks. Countless times I’ve found myself caught in a daydream or reminiscing. Hanging on to one of the things I tell myself at times I don’t really need.

A person can climb a mountain through time travelling only with thought. But to get there, you’ll need a guide or sense of direction to find some mastery. Mastery at best requires people or things around us to accomplish great things. A vortex at its best will pull a person in when we don’t seek things internally or externally.

While we journey through life or perhaps walk through great mountain terrains, our thoughts, experience, emotions derive from within. We than externally seek things out that we may ponder on or when we long for some sense of enlightenment to fill a void.To remember and acknowledge we all have limitations we set forth. Not everything can be given freely and not everything can be taken.

To give into ones needs to find purpose in life carries a fundamental understanding within that limitations are among us all.

Fears that derive from within may carry merit when we can acknowledge why we may feel this way and then place this knowledge towards better use. But also understand within ourselves that sometimes facing fears and emotions head on can be the hardest task at hand.

As you may begin to perhaps reminisce through time with memories, travel forward with an essence of belonging you may find yourself standing at the bottom of a mountain. While staring at this mountains path that may be unknown, one can begin to admire its beauty from within and the external factors at hand. While gazing at this mountain with a sense of sight, you can begin to carry insight.

Is this mountain a fresh view for your eyes or is it one you attempted long ago? Does your heart race for the adventure with excitement or does it race with fears one may feel inside?

Who will stand next to you while travelling upwards towards this mountains terrain or perhaps one may choose to stand alone the distance at hand?

Does your heart crave to pave way with others while traveling through the unknown or does one willfully create action within that you can call your own?

As you may begin to pave way new journeys, new memories or perhaps old memories to guide you, you begin taking the experience at hand while travelling uphill through the mountains terrain.

You readily take a stance and face the terrains head on. Barreling forth ahead only to find your thoughts can be self-guided.

You may begin to realizing your actions by staying in the present moment. With every move, you begin to walk up this mountain and you take pieces of it with you. Are you self-guided or do the pieces at hand provide insight and guild you?

Setting sight on everything within your path, you begin to set forth the journey at hand. Motioning forward any direction you can go, carrying pieces of this mountains terrain as you continue to go.

All the while you feel the breeze, smelling the crisp air as you travel far. The gentle leaves move within the trees and whisper subtle as can be, the stream ahead may fill your thirst as your internal insight sets in motion.

Follow the light as it settles upon you, build a fire all around you. The ground beneath you carry’s your feet to travel far; the air you breathe becomes your friend by far.

Perhaps you traveled far with another; you may find you’ve discovered shared experience best at hand.

To feel complete, would you stand alone or walk the mighty terrains and embrace the one at hand?

As you walk through the mighty terrains building lasting memories, will it become your journey you’ll come to embrace or perhaps withstand …?

Fate


Fate has no boundaries. It can be taken or given at any moment in time.

Fate can be patient, harsh or tremendous in deliverance.

Fate isn’t bias, has no strings attached except for what is perhaps a tremendous force of will power passed down from earths natural habitat.

Fate can form its habitual habits within nature by man or living force upon nature.

Fate can be glorious, or rather subtle and perhaps lenient to the eye of the beholder.

Fates boundaries shouldn’t tread lightly through abnormalities within circumstances in such divine ways.

After all, fate is free will through humanity.

Fate is passed down astronomically to future generations in hindsight, perhaps insight in creation of all things.

Fate is how we choose a formality in theory of all things.

Fate may become a way of life; habitual justification, philosophical and/ or spiritual growth.

Fate without just cause in its own unhealthy habitat within humanity may become dubious to envy, power, greed and/or glory.

Fate may at times become punitive, deferential and turbulent on cultures based on the wrath of haste or sometimes without rationale.

However, fate implores humanity not to define fate as a comparison to free will, nor brand insanity within itself.

After all, fate never cease to exist in circumstances beyond existences, nor without creation and life…

Watch “The Emily Program Foundation” on YouTube


I would like to give great thanks to #theemilyprogramfoundation for their dedication and amplifying awareness on Eating Disorders.

Behind the scenes I would like to send much gratitude to @SarahPray whom coordinated and dedicated a tremendous amount of time into this project by creating this window of opportunity towards awareness.

May communities be given the opportunity to challenge themselves without hesitation to speak out and breakdown stigmas because even in the most subtle ways, subtle times where one can perhaps remove barriers that keep a person stuck and isolated from sharing their experiences.

“Life’s Downfalls; Forgiveness Versus Acceptance” Part 1 of 3


Aristotle wrote:

“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion and desire…”

 Life isn’t set in stone, nor is there a single book out there to guide you through it. Life is going to happen whether you’re ready for it or not. Prevailing from downfalls during tough times can be costly towards a person’s quality of life if one is not prepared to face circumstances head-on. Whereas another may choose their own path with a more optimistic frame of mind towards achieving the best possible outcome.

Life is full of downfalls, as well, life can be very uplifting filled with joy, happiness and sometimes bring calm into our lives with simply feeling content. Life may feel humble or perhaps candid at times by placing differences aside with those we remain close to in our lives. We are given the greatest gift to acknowledge that we don’t have to stay down in a dark cloud of turmoil where at times life may feel overwhelming.

It’s up to each of us to figure out how to improve our situations that sometimes comes with limited knowledge or instructions.

We are often our worst critics and we may at times become very cynical of ourselves. Negative thinking may at times consume a person by simply spending too much time in their heads. It is within prompting events in our lives and/or unfortunate circumstances that we sometimes cave in or give up and lose faith within ourselves.

Often times we require more understanding within ourselves to break cycles and/or habits that sometimes keep us stuck. Whereas one were to acknowledge pros and cons to situations that come about in life, this may become ones greatest strengths; ones virtues within core values.

We become our worst enemy when we cannot find within good faith in ourselves and/or reasons to believe in a reasonable version of truth illustrated by ones thoughts. Downfalls within our emotions state sometimes tumble and spiral out of control.

Negative self-talk can lead a person to believe their situation warranted certain emotional responses. The question remains as to “what will it take to challenge a negative thought and replace it with a positive thought that we sometimes fall short upon?”

There are thousands of books, articles and web pages you can surf on topics that can shed some light on what might otherwise be reasons to believe. But if a person cannot absorb the information that is provided and truly understand what is being said without placing judgment on it, then the information becomes a lost cause. This may at times create unforeseen havoc in our daily lives.

A person can spend a lifetime living dormant while subconsciously creating what one believes to be true. It is possible without awareness to turn on a psychological automatic pilot through life’s journey. We may at times subconsciously be unaware of perceived illusions we’ve created within ourselves. We may challenge our belief system with judgments and lose sight by creating barriers from unforeseen truths.

Our reality created from within at times can mimic oblivious attempts to wash away or forget our sorrows. It may perhaps be attempts to make us feel better with some joy or happiness. 

Decades can pass with attempts to justify possibly misconceptions that we may have leaded ourselves to believe.  Perhaps it may have been family, friends or loved ones that lead a person to believe things we sometimes say or actions one has taken upon ones-self. Whereas if one were to acknowledge that perhaps communication sometimes fall short upon us all.

A great quote by Rainer Maria Rilke:

“Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty… Was it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words. “

Sometimes in life when we succumb so far into our own demise we will find ourselves in need to create a safe haven. It is in times of need we sometimes create notions within ourselves that we are helpless to overcome or embrace life’s challenges. At times we begin to feel and place thoughts in our minds that we couldn’t have gotten very far without the guidance of someone in our life.

Perhaps you have admiration for someone in your life and place them on a pedestal as a savior in some divine way. At times we may feel lost without someone significant in our lives. We may at times admire someone by creating a martyr effect from our thoughts and place them on a pedestal above with such greatness.

Religion and spiritual beliefs can be recognizing by those whom choose to practice within one’s own beliefs. Regardless of who may be your higher power, humanity wasn’t created, nor does it acknowledge any person to be supreme beings. We cannot allow ourselves to pass judgments upon ourselves when situations arise. Nor is it going to benefit anyone to place judgments on life’s downfalls, but rather we embrace each situation with a sense of acknowledgment.

Communication errors from written content may at times become a primary reason as to why it has become difficult to communicate effectively with others.  It’s an unfortunate occurrence that may blind us further from truths.  At times we may have felt too busy to return a call, responded in such swift and subtle ways. This can lead us to miscommunication where we at times limit our time rushing from one moment to the next.

Changing the way we communicate with others will help us to grow within terms we may have once established. Technology has accelerated rapidly. What may have been up to date two years ago may no longer be sufficient and up to date.

Having compassion to understand someone else’s needs and desire to communicate will require us to grow together as we continue to move forward.  Life is a revolving door, compassion and understanding go both ways.

Fundamentally it does also require us to carry this same compassion and understanding within ourselves. This same basic concept would need to set forth to build and strengthen a solid foundation within ourselves.

 

Holistic Mind, Body & Spirit:  

“Forgiveness through acceptance”

A quote by:

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly

“Nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose-a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.”

 

A person can travel far pondering on the word “forgiveness.” For many defining the word forgiveness can be challenging within itself, stuck on a word that may be too heavy near someone’s heart. Perhaps forgiveness might capture a person’s inability to let go of emotions that may derive from unfortunate circumstances in their lives. Forgiveness may be hindered by ones emotions of events or perhaps misplaced projection of their failed attempts to attain a more meaningful outcome towards forgiveness.

It is often heard and understood that forgiveness comes from within. That forgiveness is to find strength carried out from within to achieve peace, solace and surrender to ones habitual ways. To allow ourselves to relieve burdens that may hinder us from moving forward. But sometimes finding forgiveness is easier said than done…

The question remains “when might it deem necessary to seek an alternative remedy towards forgiveness when it keeps someone stuck and unable to move forward?”

One might find themselves asking “is forgiveness possible or perhaps am I tranquilized by thoughts under the assumption everything should be forgivable?”

We’re reminded of these circumstance that hinder our ability to forgive, the amount of energy a person may consume within their thoughts may dwell or perhaps fester inside unable to achieve forgiveness sometimes stated by notions within ourselves.

Terminology at times can render a person to relieve these heavy burdens carried within when he/she can reason within their own core values. Sometimes memories of these circumstances become so heavy a person might find it difficult to live in the present moment on a day-to-day basis without emotions that may still fester, challenge persons will and desires to let go.

However it is sometimes found through transparency that perhaps forgiveness no longer becomes second nature to ones thoughts, but rather a person can perceive notions within themselves that allow them to heal through acceptance versus forgiveness…

It is often stated by others that when they are able to let go things that keep them stuck, it resembles as a feeling of weight that has been lifted off ones shoulders. Having that weight lifted off ones shoulders can be a life changing experience, sighs of relief, finding peace within ones emotional and physical state.

Finding forgiveness is essentially an outcome we long to achieve. Where forgiveness might hinder someone’s ability to achieve this state of emotional and/or physical wellness, they may find the term “acceptance” to be effective approach towards forgiveness. Attain the ability to define oneself and to relieve an emotional state that may keep one stuck…
