« The trick is to be able to protect yourself without being offended by the acts and words of others. To borrow an analogy from Castaneda, if you were out in the jungle, and a wild animal attacked you, you would do everything in your power to protect yourself but it would never occur to you to be personally offended. It is taking offense, not self-protection that is energy draining. »

Is it me? Is it the advent of spring, or the warmer days, or the return of the sun, maybe it has nothing to do with it or maybe it’s all of the above?
All I know is that I don’t feel constantly tired and jaded anymore. I never thought that day would come, what a blessing!
I also have been working hard on myself, tried to find my new « self”, which would still be « me », after all …I really think I’m getting there…I am seeing the light at the end of the dark dark (and motherfuckin’ scary) tunnel! And it feels good! I’m peaceful, serene and in control of myself like I have never been ever before.
It paid off, finally, it did and god damn it, it was worth it! But I learned so much, along the way and I know I still have so much to learn …
They say “it is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles…” I actually had this saying tattooed on the back of my neck, in Sanskrit, a long time ago …
Developing a strong sense of self, true self, nothing is more important in the world.
To know yourself, look at your fears. Fear in itself is not important, but fear stands there and points you in the direction of things that are important. That’s where you can begin.
Wish me luck for the beginning of the rest of my journey 🙂
Hello Wide World of the Web,
I haven’t written in a month. I’ve been through a lot, some depressing times of the winter, after the holidays. I can’t wait for the sun and the warm days to be back.
I’m caught in a process where I’m trying to define my new self. Who do I want to be? What do I throw away and what do I keep from the old Me?
Most important, I need to find my inner joy, my inner strength and inner power.
Free myself from the constant fear of what other people might think.
A new era is about to beginning,
I am tired as fuck, and sick and tired.
I think that I really need some time, alone, and time with my friends.
I don’t know …my life’s seems so out of control.
My routine has driven my personality completely out.
I don’t know who I am anymore.
I feel drained and dispossessed.
I seriously lack confidence and vital energy.
And I don’t know what to do. I don’t know WHAT TO DO.
I am lost.
῾῾The energy of emotional purification will help you forgive yourself for making choices that you did not fully understand at the time. From the moment you are free of regret or sorry for yourself, you can begin to heal, and then will automatically heal everyone around you with radiant unconditional love.᾿᾿
