Came across a quote that supports my thoughts on life at the moment;
Your journey is
towards your homeland.
Remember you are
traveling from the
world of appearances
to the world of
~Adul Khalig Gajadwani~
Found it on Facebook, great little page called Quotes from the Mystics, [https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quotes-from-the-Mystics/523080594372046]
you’ll find feel good messages, words of nourishment and words that prompt food for thought, just my type of page 🙂
I’m quite convinced now that the world I open my door to everyday, the world I step out into with my son, the world that we all have made… is not a truthful reality.
Ok, so let’s make sure we have a basis to work from;
Reality = the state or quality of being real.
Real = existing or occurring as fact; actual rather than imaginary, ideal, or fictitious
So we’ve created a box [or space] within which to put things, right? I’m going to ask you now to step away from the box, put our reality and real to one side and imagine. We’re not going to escape from anything we’re just going to put this reality that we’ve all made into perspective.
I do love all the people out there that encourage , tell us we can have any life we want, pack your bags, head out the door and just live it man… This is only partially true in my mind for certain people, because if you apply individual journeys, what we’ve signed up for before we enter these bodies that would impact experiences and places we live or visit. Here’s a crazy notion perhaps what we’ve signed up for impacts the PLANET we live on!! :-O I know that might be a bit much to digest on a Sunday evening 🙂
I’ll bring it back to planet Earth just for a moment though, so we’ve really done a number on ourselves with what we accept as reality, don’t you think? We change what we choose; where we live, what we live in, what we live with, how we look when we’re living. But what good is any one comfort when we open each of our doors to a tumultuous world all around.
Our world is a little askew to put it kindly…
Well here’s another quote from an inspirational man who no longer dwells in the world of appearances but basks in the homeland of REALITY;
Let us not anchor ourselves to this reality, an ugly place where no one is truly equal, a place where beautiful is often ugly and what we are taught is ugly is often our saving grace.
Instead find the true beauty within yourself, the peace that is knowing and loving Who You Are.
Let go of all that binds you to one perspective,
this may mean people, it may mean clothes, it may mean routines…
Shake it off,
there is a happier reality, one that you get to CHOOSE whether that be sitting on the perfect beach or looking after your family in a terrace house ’round the way’.
Know that what you say yes and no to is so powerful, it shapes opinions and perspectives of the people around you, the community you are apart of, the country you live in and beyond.
We could all shift this reality to one that encompasses everyone and is more loving, we could all choose a new reality a new real and leave that box to the side where we put it early.
Simply because we can
and also because the present reality or real no longer serves us.
don’t forget to smile 🙂
best wishes for the week ahead
P.s – found an additional story to support/ help put across some of this weeks blog, enjoy 🙂
