Are you feeling depressed about living your life in the way that feels
programmed by external forces –
as dictated by society, family, friends and peers?
Do you want to live in alignment with your own soul’s purpose?
Do you feel that you suffer from the “disease to please” –
Pressured to fill a need for someone else out of a sense of duty and sacrifice?
If not now then when will master pretenders untangle from
this illusionary web and get wise to this act?
It is safe to turn inward for radical self-examination . . .
Watching what arrives from what once upon a time was submerged –
with a patient and kind heartfelt lens.
In our letting go of control and rigid attachment to expectations –
We open up to abundant Universal surprise birthday parties.
Robin Williams’ unexpected death is a sad reminder . . .
The knife of suicide cuts a deep wound into dark caverns of our psyches.
It is a terribly tragic loss that shakes our foundation.
Suicide is wickedly confusing to a lost soul with
devastating unintended consequences.
But it is not a preferred exit strategy.
Avoiding our pain leads to more suffering.
With meditation we learn to just sit with what is . . .
Rather than exiting with anger and denial.
Physically ending a hellish inner state of consciousness
is not a cease-fire on our souls.
We must rise up from the ashes of our inner demons
Summoning our “better angels.”
As the old saying goes –
Lessons will continue to revisit us until learned . . .
Whether in this life or the next.
Mother once said depression is like a storm that you ride out
without knowing where it will take you.
The cosmetics of our modern world will never fill our soulful appetites
like the Light of Consciousness.
We have discussed the relationship between brother order and sister chaos –
Formless energies awakening into our world of form.
Learning to co-exist in harmony is best medicine.
Out on the streets, jungleland takes root.
A lethal weapon meets arrested development . . .
When will our world’s movers and shakers open up a level playing field
by embracing our diversity within unity?
Remember that in every breath we take . . .
We witness a death and rebirth.
See you further on down the trails,
