My Cycle

Here is a spiritual discovery I seem to have found within myself a few months ago. As a whole it’s a very inspiring message but if you only read part of it, it may not make sense!

 

I have fallen upon the rule of the underworld. I have died and now I walk through the depths of hell but I have a small view of the fields of heaven in my thoughts. I walk the corridors of the hidden and lost. I shall find and follow what motivates me in this new life. I have been lying to myself for some time, certain things will never happen upon a double edged sword. When I discover my new direction is when my new journey begins. These chains I will break and challenges I will face shall be my motivation to move forward.

I stand embodied by the day and the rebirth of new life. Current life changes have brought me back to a mind of basic values that have never changed. Old meanings I hold close in the present have lost value. I stand alone in displacement where my regular world no longer makes any sense to me. I seek eyes of new meaning in my life. I transform from the darkness to explore and become reborn.

This is the time to follow my heart. If I fail in this path my deepest self needs will be ignored. It is time to connect with animal and nature. What am I passionate about? Where do I belong? I need to let go to be wild and free in this world and find my place. I will not abandon all that I know and love but I need to step away from the places I frequent and the people I love and explore nature. There is a great connection out there somewhere and I have to find it.

To follow my journey there are many things I must give up, many things I must sacrifice in hopes it guides me to a greater good. I will sacrifice many things in the light of change. The road will be long and uncomfortable but only the challenging roads can get me anywhere worth going. I will fight with my comfort levels but in time I will level out stronger than before. It starts by being a hero to myself and living.

It is very unclear what freedoms will be gained from my journey. Angels will be the guiding light to those freedoms. I must unmask my deepest fears and let them transform into something more beautiful. I have to face my fears but I also need to decide now. I must understand my fears to step upon them with glory.

As the cycle completes and the journey comes to its goal I will ignite all I have learned with the new light of my soul. Maybe I am at home now, I may find a new home in my journey or I may go back home to those I know. Home is where you are comfortable, home is important. I think my journey may be to find where I can call home and sometimes we must travel great distances with both our feet and our minds to discover where we belong. Even if we feel like we don’t belong we need the journey to discover where we do, even if that journey takes us back to where we started because we reenter familiar surroundings with a new heavenly life view.

It is my life at hand, It is your future, It is our destiny, we can never stop until mother nature tells us we have learned enough in our life. Let your tears of sorrow fall back to the salty seas, and capture the tears of joy for they will form diamonds in your future. -UPwithmarc

Dying Kindness? (A must read)

Not a very positive title I know but it was hard to title this one. I know right off the bat that negativity sells. Negativity gets way more attention in our society than anything positive. That human instinct that draws us to be more interested in negativity is probably drawing more of you to this post than normal, just by the title. No big deal it is natural. But those that came here to read a negative story might be disappointed. I will touch on a few negative things, but it is more so making you aware of things so you can choose to be positive.

I have sworn off TV/radio news, and most of TV sitcoms and reality shows, it is just way to negative and depressing for me. I am certainly not telling you to, but I can tell you why I have. I know you can argue that there are good shows and good news stories. It would not be an argument you would be right. However, the amount of people dying, the crime, and immature and pointless stories you have to go through to get to anything positive or inspirational is just gross. Yes, these things I want to avoid are part of everyday life, but you can turn the table around and realize how many good things that are out there also and part of your everyday life as well. I don’t have facts and numbers to throw at you but it is a fact that there are WAY MORE good people and positive things happening in our world then bad. It is all about what we choose to pay attention too.

One compliment for Facebook, I am following any good page I can find. I jump on my Facebook and it is one positive story after another all the time. I fully enjoy any positive posts I see from my friends as well. I just wish those that choose to complain and grab negative attention would try posting more positive things once in a while. Sure you’re not going to get dozens of likes and comments for sympathy or debate but to me it is not worth it. Whenever I post I always hope for the like approval or even a nice comment but sometimes I don’t get anything. Even if it is just at a glance I know you are reading my comments and my blog, even if you don’t acknowledge it. I am grateful for your following. I have grown to be grateful for the opportunity to share positive things with people all over the world. There are many that don’t even have the freedom to try to spread positivism.

The reason I like to remain positive, nonreligious and nonpolitical in my blog is simply for the positive challenge. I know if I start talking about the negative things in my life, sadly this blog will be more interesting to more people. If I start sharing my religious views my followings would be out the roof, there is a lot of positivism to be shared in the name of religion. If I shared my political views I am sure I can easily gather a large following to continually debate. NO I just want plain positivism to ourselves and to others. We can always use more positivism but really we need more people in this world to follow a life of positivism. I know we are all not positive robots. Things in our life will totally suck sometimes but we are going to get past them. The sun will rise again on a new day. There are endless opportunities out there for all of us. There are endless ways we can be positive and share positivism.

To my point of dying kindness is what it seems is happening all around us, or perhaps just me. One of the reasons I want to travel is I have a strong need to experience other people and other cultures. Just with my visit to Texas last weekend I realize how much nicer people are their then here in Chicago, in general of course. I got an “excuse me sir” just coming out of a public bathroom as I almost walked into him. I was uncomfortable at first because I was not used to that but I realize later how polite that was and pretty much just wanted to find the guy and thank him for his kindness. The idea of dying kindness seems to be all around me. Returning people’s calls or messages all the time does not seem to matter to people anymore. Compliments without acknowledgement. Being nice to people is labeled as being too nice now. SERIOUSLY why do we live in a society were being too nice is a problem? To many kind words freak people out these days. I’m nervous shelling out compliments to new girls, they either seem to be weirded out, or think I want to get in their pants. When I give a guy a compliment it is even more uncomfortable. Communication is dying, everyone seems to just assume now. No one seems to take inititive to make the first move for what they are interested in, they wait for others. Even when you say or do something nice it goes unacknowledged. The nervousness to giving compliments I would like to lose. I used to compliment people all time but it made them uncomfortable. I will just let people take it however they wish now. If it comes off as weird or unwanted flirting too bad! I never ever have bad intentions toward anyone. A word we need to use more often is love. If you love someone or something SAY IT! I don’t care if it is the chocolate covered gummy bears at or your favorite candy shop or a first date or your family pet. Profess that love. In a world were kindness seems to be dying, love is a strength that will keep it alive. Don’t let communication die, don’t let kindness die, don’t let love for one another die. Think Positive share positive and worry not of your consequences.

I LOVE ALL OF YOU! Be kind and share my blog with your friends. You have already complimented me by reading, why not take it one step farther and click and share this kindness with those that you love.

Famous Quote Friday

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
Nelson Mandela

 

The great things you want in life are not always going to be easy. You should expect to walk through many obstacles and hard times to get to your destinations. The key is to not give up. Your desires are out there waiting for you. Just when you reach the mountain top sometimes off in the distance you see another one, a higher mountain top. Sometimes your journey starts over sometimes it grows even bigger. Stay true to your desires and you shall walk higher than ever.
