What’s Stopping You from being YOU??

And I wonder..

What is stopping me from being ME?

What is stopping all the people I know from being themselves?

Don’t talk to me about the Circumstances! I hate when we start doing that.. Putting ourselves in the bubble of circumstances…Till When?

All religious writings confirmed that if we want to do something, we can do it if we believe. All philosophers, spiritual gurus, and scientists tried to explain that as well..

What else do we need to start following the dream?

What are we waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

Things from up there!

This is where I want to look at things from..

Always from above, distant, detached, objectively and wisely…


And One More Thing

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs – CEO Apple


The Inner Dilemma

It’s been a while now since I’m trying to live up with an enormous heavy mental conflict.

The question started with a simple “Why”..but the answer was not that simple.

I love life, and I know a lot of people that do, although they pretend to despise it. But it’s obvious they don’t, because simply they still want the best of it, they strive for its instantaneous pleasures, they fight for its erroneous delights. And when the idea of death is spoken, they don’t warmly welcome it.

So We Love Life, we try our best to reach our aspirations and feel content. And during this journey, we cry, we fail, we fear, we get so anxious and so attached to our desires, we even become obsessed with our wants and struggle with our own demons..On the other hand, we have admitted long ago that there is a source, a source that created us from nothing, took care of us, granted us uncountable blessings,  and we know that we shall return to this source again. We KNOW that! we are not doubting it..we are not giving it a second thought..we are not denying it (supposedly)..we agreed to believe in it…

And here comes the big question mark: By trusting in such a belief, logically, we should not be suffering from the disease of life attachments.  I’m not saying we should hate life, but what I’m pointing at is that we should not get that much attached to it to a point that we allow feelings of eternal  fear and anxiety to penetrate our hearts. We shouldn’t be forgetting that whatever we are doing today won’t last forever. We should always remember that we were born on Earth for a reason and that this Source is always there looking upon us. We are not alone. We will never be.

So How come we know, and by knowing I mean trusting and believing..how come we know this truth as a fact and still act as if we don’t know it? How come we ignore it? How come we don’t see it?

I wonder how can we reach the balance, the balance between our attachment to life and our knowing of its true reality. It’s only then when we can reach a true and deep sense of happiness and inner peace. Those cannot be reached unless we are aligned with the authenticity of life.

“If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.”
— Wayne W. Dyer


Fear..the other face

Fear is not appreciated by any of us..we hate it..it shows how weak, vulnerable, and  fragile we are. At least that’s how we view it.

But isn’t it interesting to think the opposite? It’s not familiar though.. Ok, here it is: Fear is what make us more courageous and brave.

Think about it..

When fear attacks, we become aware of an external factor that seems unusual for us..Adrenaline starts pumping in our veins, our heart beats faster, more sweating, nervous attacks..but what happens after that?

Our minds push us to think about the way to get out of this shit! We look for an answer, we fight with all our hearts and will.

We don’t do that when we’re not afraid!

So..enough with avoiding fear..it’s not our enemy, but we are the enemy of our own selves.. Fear is not unbeatable..

If only we can change the way we see things..
