    Remember Who You Are

    Remember Who You Are

    244 - It's time to remember who you are.

    How does one go beyond the constructs of identity to uncover the true self?

    When we're caught identifying with the surface level, the meaning for our existence tends to remain shallow.

    It's only when we begin to uncover the deeper layers of who we are that we can begin to take on a life of greater purpose and fulfillment.

    "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are." -Carl Jung

    Learning to Let Go

    Learning to Let Go

    243 - Exploring the art of letting go.

    All things are temporary, even what you love most.

    What a beautiful, f****d up and timeless lesson we will all come to know at some point.

    When giving your absolute all to something, it’s common to become afraid of letting go of the familiarity we’ve come to know.

    There’s nobility in never giving up.

    When you love right, you love passionately. If it’s real, you’re gonna have to fight for it.

    If you only go to eighty percent with anything and find contentment there, you’ll fail to see the fruits of sweet magic that come from going all the way.

    But when you give it your all, and it becomes clear the end is near, you only sacrifice yourself by holding on.

    What’s the right balance then, given love equates to sacrifice?

    You must push yourself to the point of being broken, burned and struck down by your own ignorance.

    To love is to give someone the power to destroy you and trust they don’t use it.

    But when they pull the trigger?

    Rock bottom.

    But from here, you have an opportunity to rise again.

    The pain will leave a scar, a marker that serves as a reminder of both the beautiful and painful memories.

    Beauty and pain exist on the same spectrum. Can you smile in spite of suffering, finding gratitude for the lessons learned along the way?

    When the next time comes to open your heart, will you have the courage to show up and see through the previous experience of being broken?

    All times of darkness lead to brighter days.

    Look up to the stars, pray.

    Show us the way home with our innocence still intact.

    You’re never truly lonely when connected to your heart.

    Each day is an opportunity for a new start.

    Next time you’re struggling for control, remember what happened today and choose to let go.

    Keep your heart soft but your mind strong.

    It may feel like a mistake losing yourself in love, but you can close your eyes knowing it was worth giving your all.

    Change is coming so take that weight of your shoulders.

    Set your sight on the horizon, move on.

    Let the seeds of new beginnings take root, one day flowering to set your heart free.

    Reborn From Silence

    Reborn From Silence

    242 - Returning from the silence, may your vision now come to light.

    Allow yourself the dreams you deserve.

    Play with the balance between urgency and not rushing into things.

    What will be, will be

    A commitment to truth, only found in the space of pure silence, was the beginning of uncovering the fine intricacies of who you are.

    How can you know yourself if you’re unwilling to see who you are when unplugged from the numbing stimuli of life?

    Stop following a lost crowd and find your own sense of direction.

    Own the truth..

    You might get destroyed for it, but that’s the risk you take in following it.

    Oh, what a wonderful life this can be when you choose to be free.

    Don’t measure in time, but in memories made.

    Love, give and feel to the fullest.

    When you look up at the stars for what may be the final time, you will see the truth reflected back at you.

    Follow the call of the heart and remain wild.

    You’re right where you need to be.

    To Marshal Love Against Tyranny

    241 - How do you marshal love against tyranny? 

    Love, the most beautiful force of nature, cannot be seen or touched. It can only be felt in the heart.

    Love is radical, unreasonable. It can’t be contained within the frameworks of our social contracts. It’s the generator of all meaning, while tossing the illusions of logic and reasoning aside.

    Love is why we mourn when forced to let go. It’s what made the magic perceivable to begin within, filling up our hearts with feelings we once only thought to be possible in a dream. That’s why when we die, it’s only the love we shared that survives.

    Love will bring you to the highest peaks of every mountain, while offering a light of hope when lost in the loneliest valleys of darkness. Always moving subtly, until it one day moves through you in an unmistakable flash of its beauty.

    Love will forever remain an unknown danger to the mind, but can be life’s only constant as your heart’s guide. If anything matters, it’s having the courage to choose love through it all.

    It’s so simple when we let it be, allowing love to guide us towards the path of being free.

    When you allow love to be the foundation of who you are, you tame the temptations of the tyrant within.
