Our beauty exists in being exactly as we are,
Here, now and in every moment
~ M.L Adams
I’ve been feeling a real shift recently and I’m not sure if its right, although I’m not really sure if its the right thing to question it either. It seems to be a real perception shift and one that’s making everything seem more together and one, but with the status quo somewhat unusual.
I’ve been aware of this shift for a while now but it has hit me more rapidly in the last few weeks. Throughout this time I’ve been learning to accept hurt and pain as part of experience rather than rejecting it as such.
It’s as though I now see the world and my reality in a way that all is one, emotions, people, experiences, that cannot exist on a purely positive state. There is less judgement over what is good or bad and more acceptance in what is, just as it is, realising deeper that at the core of everything exists pure love and creative energy.
This reality I in part realised around a year ago and now it’s as if its deepening in that I can see it more in the difficult experiences and how they are one with the ultimate cause. In how it’s not possible to have the good without the bad, It is the same with emotions, its so easy to label them and say ‘I don’t want to feel this’, but in reality it just is and without one we may not have the others.
I know where I want to be and that is to be coming from a place of love and creativity in all I do, but its becoming more and more apparent that where there is love , there is creation and within this there is also pain and possible destruction but out of this comes further creation and love, it is all one.
Without judging this experience too much it appears from this perspective as though everything at the core is ultimately together as one, and that we are all co-existent and as part of the journey of life together, not to be in opposition with each other. There are no labels, all that is just is and when we are in alignment with creative energy or love then we will automatically operate at our highest purpose and highest self.
When we see ourselves as separate in any way or begin labelling people and situations we effectively detatch ourselves from this force and begin to lose recognition with it.
At times I am questioning this perception and becoming confused with it, finding myself saying, is this right or is it naïve or is it part of the new way of seeing things, a new world? But then in doing this I begin judging, labelling and detaching again so for now I have to trust in this new reality and flow with it. Perhaps all will become clearer in the newness of things or maybe it doesn’t need to?
Right now Prince Ea’s Rap ‘The World is Ending’ is really resonating with me, check it out if you haven’t seen it before, its an awakening in itself. 🙂 Until next time, lots of love and light to you ❤
Love exists at the core of everything, of everyone. Know and trust in this and that’s all you see, no matter what happens.
I’ll love you no matter what you do,
It feels somehow I’m a part of you
That I can never let go of you
No matter how I try, its no use
At one point I thought I hated you,
So then I went and hurt you too
Even through all this I cant let go of you
I don’t know why, I just know its true
Your always there; I’ll always care for you
No matter where you are or what you do
There’s a part of me always there for you,
I know this to be the only truth

I wrote this over a year ago when I’d been hurt quiet badly from lies. The experience taught me many things, Initially it was a reminder of how hurtful lies can be but far more than that was how powerful love can be to overcome it.
Today has been a day in redefining this for me. I’m not certain if it’s right
or condemning lies in anyway, as many of us know how hurtful they can be but the causes can be far deeper than we know. Even though someone lies or even continues to lie, that may mean they need our love even more. Why does anyone lie after all? ❤
Our world is becoming more fast paced by the minute and it seems along with the consumerist culture of products and pleasures, that people and relationships are being treated in this way more frequently too. In dating culture it has become very obvious, from how we can pick and choose someone based upon their appearance alone to how many just wont stick around with someone any more if they don’t quiet meet the checklist.
In some ways I think this may be a positive but it can also go too far. It can occur in friendships as well as relationships, I’ve recently had personal experience of this with such people and situations where after making one mistake or doing one thing that doesn’t meet their needs alone, they will just drop you like a ton of weight.
It is understandable if situations occur where someone goes too far, we need to be clear with them to not do the same again. However we are all only human and where is the depth and realness when people are marked off a checklist and treat like a consumer product. The deepest and best relationships come when we truly see the person and love and accept them just the same. This is how we can be with family and those closest to us, to have truly valuable lasting real-ationships, we need to see others as their whole self too. Unless of course we are happy with a surface relationship that has no passion, depth or bond.
Maybe products today are not made to last but as people we are not made to be thrown away, we are here to love and be loved as a whole and as we are. This is the kind of relationships I now seek, ones that are real, where others are themselves and I can be too. Because of this I know I too have to be vulnerable and drop my checklist, choosing to see anyone I know and meet as whole person worthy of love and acceptance no matter what.
As for the actual products in my life I always try to keep them as long as I can and recycle (but I am not so attached to them). The people that are in and come into our lives are not material objects but feeling beings, so in knowing this myself I choose to be open and receptive to this, to all the beauty in each person and not just someone who is there to tick my list. I would hope in this I can bring far more to others and that the relationships in my life will be far more real and enriching. As for the consumerists I’ll let them continue shopping 🙂
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this too, have any of you experienced this or is it something you’ve noticed happening? Do you think it can be a positive at all or purely a negative for our relationships and in how we treat people?
Thank you for all your realness, loving and feedback as always 🙂
We live in a beautiful and unique world, yet we are taught to see in opposites and labels. Each of us are all unique, yet bombarded with labels and judgements which we then take upon ourselves from a very young age.
In recognition of World Mental Health Day yesterday I wrote this poem to acknowledge how we are all whole and beautiful just as we are. Each worthy of our own love and acceptance as well as others just because we are who we are, no more.
Our tears are the rivers in beauty and flow
Our smiles are the joy that exists in all souls
We are whole , we are one
Were not merely light or dark,
We are whole, we are one, just as we are,
It’s not success or failure, but beauty in being,
Just as you are; as natures true rhythm
