The Fake Moments in our Lives

Yesterday somehow I realized how much efforts we put on trying to be “someone” we are not. I didn’t see it that clear in myself, but it was very obvious in others’ behaviors. My mind started to do all the mapping, connecting what I was thinking about with my personal experiences, with friends’ experiences..and the image was suddenly clear: Yes, we do spend a lot of time and energy trying to fit in a model that do not, by any means, belong to our true essence & identity. Behind this behavior, we seek approval, acceptance, validation from others and from the whole society.

The thing is we only have ONE Life to live, so why wasting it in identifying ourselves through others? why can’t we just be ourselves? what stop us from choosing our own path? why do we insist on “duplication”, I mean being just a duplicate, another fake copy of the other? Don’t we realize how unhappy this makes us feel? How frustrating? How unworthy?

Fitting in the box of others is a true sad truth many of us live day after day. Only YOU can put an end to it. Listen to yourself, enough taming your true calling! Listen to it, give it a chance to manifest, to express and to be expressed.

Being Aware is the Key, you can’t move to the authentic part of you until you are aware you are living someone else’s life. This shall be the starting point of a journey lived truly by your own music..In the journey, there are always challenges, hardships, difficulties. So, don’t fool yourself by an imaginary too good to be true perception. The true perception lies in the results of how worthy and meaningful it is to live a life of your own choice…

“All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was.  I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory.  I was naïve.  I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer.  It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with:  that I am nobody but myself.”  ~Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal”


Fear Not…

Fear Not FEAR…just like in a dream you believe everything is real then once awake you realize it’s no longer there. Fear is very alike. When you are afraid, you think threatening fearful thoughts and once you overcome them, you realize how illusionary they were. Fear was there. It existed just like a small flame shaking in the winds. But in your mind you saw it invincible and to intensify the picture you started feeding it  with extra frightening thoughts. Until reality & illusion united. They formed a strong “invincible” alley. You are trapped now. And You suffer from your own perceptions. You then decide not to suffer anymore. You decide to overcome your fears. You can do it! And you actually do it..this is when you start realizing how fear fooled you or maybe you fooled yourself!

The thing is even if Fear is there, do not fear it. It is part of who we are, part of our human imperfections. Accepting it as part of the process will help you break the “invincible” picture your mind draws.

At the end of your life, you don’t want to regret not doing what you wanted to do out of fear…


Hope & Faith

Is it when you are experiencing the toughest situations and know inside you it will soon dissipate…

It is when your cry out from sorrow and still know your ship will cross the river of your tears…

It is when you tremble in the darkness and still know you are guided somehow by a divine light…

It is when you shake from fear and still know you are blessed with a fearless soul…

It is when you have to leave your beloved ones and still know you can touch their lives while away…

It is when you fall once and twice, and still know your failures are your pathway to success…

It is when you suffer from physical pain, and still know your eternal soul is detached from what your body suffers from…

It is when you are not able to reach your wants, and still know you have a lesson to learn from this delay…

It is when you keep falling in the trap of your mistakes, and still know you are reaching a deeper state of self awareness…

It is when you are criticized by your fellows, and still know you are a whole person and God makes no mistakes…

It is when you are condemned by society, and still know your intuitive heart is leading you to a better place…

It is when you are misled by others’ opinions, and still know you can see through everything when you want to…
