There are some days that you know that everything has changed. It may not be because of anything drastic, but maybe a slight shift in perspective that allows you to move, and engage, and be in life in a completely different way. An openness to new things, and a willingness to step outside of your comfort zone may overtake you – and for a moment, you are unafraid.
When these days come, allow yourself to move and flow through it without interrupting the process and without letting anyone else interrupt the process. Negativity can wait and doubts can be reserved for a later time – if you decide to ever pick them up again. Or maybe you decide that you don’t need the negativity or doubt at all, and that you are better off staying in this space of freedom, hope, willingness, and belief. If this is the case, then today will be the first day of a brand new life for you.
There may be no parade, but there is certainly something to celebrate. And maybe no one else is in attendance, but there is certainly a party – a praise party, with the honored guests being you and the One that made it happen for you: your Creator. Today, you celebrate an awakening to your true love with a fresh perspective. And show gratitude for these moments of breakthrough and change that continue to happen in your life.
I wonder if someday I will find out that everything I think I am, the truth is, I am just the opposite. It is interesting to consider the physiology of the body where the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body and vice versa; and how everything that we see with our two retina is upside down but when our brain processes it they are combined into one image flipped right side up. We normally have general concepts of who we are, but if we get to know ourselves scientifically, we realize that everything we think we see and know and believe in this physical realm is literally upside, backwards, and/or an illusion.
Even that which we like to believe is supported by our science, such as our concepts of what is solid and still, we know is still illusion in some way since what we perceive as “solid” is composed of atoms, mostly empty space and constantly in motion.
So, how are we to think of ourselves and our world? Who do we think we are anyway? A better question is What do we think we are, and shouldn’t we make it a priority to find out?
I don’t have any specific answers as to how to kick start that sort of journey, because I realize how different things are for each individual. Self-exploration is personal by nature, so we could not all possibly agree on what we are. We can agree, however, that it’s a good time to stop seeing ourselves and the world in such surface level ways. And to stop simply believing everything we’ve been told is our reality. See for yourself. Look for yourself. Live for yourself. Learn for yourself.
In a reality where left is right, up is down, and outside-in is really inside-out – it’s probably a good time to gain new perspective.
