Dreams

I’ve been meandering over dreams a lot lately… what are dreams & what is the finite definition of getting, achieving, and having those dreams? It’s nice to dream… often I get lost and so encompassed in the dream world that reality escapes me. Maybe its better that way. It’s great to live in a world and imagine a place where we can be free, fly, & endlessly soar with that feeling that lifts us up and takes us. I do dream of that other world often. I interact in that world. I have nightmares, visions, and I have what could be illusions of possible realities that take me to other people and places. Is it happening? How do we know?

The dream world, the real world… it confuses me. I dream of a place of peace, where people can walk happily and respect one another. I think it’s important to dream. It’s good to have a vision. Are those dreams signs signals or focused parted of reality we created in our mind? I don’t know. It’s an interesting thing the dream world… & discovering and living in a reality that usually does not connect though. I hope one day that peace and freedom can help us all fly with dreams and happiness. For that ease I find on the yoga mat, in that altered state, in that dream land, is a feeling I never want to leave me. Maybe it is a trance. Maybe it’s a dream? Maybe it’s the possibility of flying elsewhere and one day connecting… maybe it’s my own vision of having those people, in my dream, surround me in this reality and one day connect together… I don’t know.

Somewhere out there, we connect, we all merge, we all dream, and we all want that other escape… How do we bring the dream down & create together a new reality rather than escaping to the other place that feels better? Natural high, naturally well, naturally loving toward one another?

Birds fly high, can we?

FREEDOM ~ America!

 

Thank You America!

I just watched the 2015 4th of July fireworks from a cement bench on the bayside of San Diego, a place I routinely visit and walk or ride by bike by daily. I had no hand to hold me, no liquid toxicity within me, and no one even with me to share the evening firework display. I did have my headphones and some great music on shuffle to listen to and hum along to as I watched the magnificent light show in the sky.

 

Freedom. Red, white, and blue… well lots of red tonight. The sky lit with fire and sparks and bombs in the air that burst to sparkle the still dark water beneath it. Lights pulsed from the dark in the twilight as people gathered from all around. America, how beautiful… for the first time in what very well maybe my whole life I felt at peace. Totally calm, totally cool, and totally okay… what was this ecstatic state and how was I totally fine in the midst of being alone on one of the most social holidays of the year… and wait, I was dead sober and alone, and still completely happy.

 freedom

Oh say can you see, while watching that night sky dance with color I witnessed the real magic that I had been missing…. Freedom. A word we hear quite often, yet I still have not yet accurately described the sensation or meaning of the letters. In the moment, I gazed around and at the scenery of the people, the drunks sneaking the beer, the tipsy crew singing along to the star spangled sky, the kids wanting to go home, the cops trying regulate, the bonfires that had their own sparkle show, the friends gathered tight, the couples holding hands, and all the people, for a moment, coming together for a profound scene of peace and joy. Hallelujah America! We did it, and I got to watch while the lights gallantly streamed through the sky.

 

Then I remembered what this holiday is all about and the real meaning in celebrating what it means to be American and happy and free. It’s as if the Universe opened up, and better than a broomstick, glitter rang out from the heavens in a spell of ease and delight. Not a single person I could see was upset, and not a single person dared to ruin the moment for another or even fight or exchange an unkind word. All that mattered was the proof in the sky that our country was together, the land of the free and the home of the brave. It was as if a spangled banner with stars and stripes was actually waving from the sky. Even with all the ugliness the world can hold, the bombs that bleed, the curses, and the evil spells that cause us fright and despair, and with the fights and the nasty currents that consume us, all of that seemed to be put on pause, irrelevant, and as if vanished, all was still, and all was well. The only music was the show in the sky and a few quite songs being sung by we the people.

 

With the bliss bombs bursting in air, in that moment, I felt the true meaning of freedom and witnessed what it is like to live in a Country that is united and perhaps even free. Together as one, happy and at peace, that was proof that America really can be beautiful and come together. Amazing grace. I was gifted a glimpse of how, maybe someday, I can imagine a world that stops, and looks up to remember the real stars in the sky that help us stand taller, shine brighter, and wave our hands in celebration… Peace, Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is possible. I just got a captivating picture of it and watched a stellar show that proved we can all shine together and blow up sweeter than any cake you’ll even consume.

 

            This fourth of July, I am grateful. I do not accurately know the last time I was fully sober, without a drink, without a buzz, and without any other soul, on America’s finest day. Happy, solo, and totally amazed at the beauty of inner peace, inner light, and inner strength, to be able to sing freely and be totally content with me. The best freedom of all comes from the pure blissful state of knowing you are never lost, but always found. This night I learned that freedom to me, is not an action, a party, and it’s never laced with bubbles or another hand to high five or salute. Real freedom is being in your spirit and anchored in joy with the real effect that causes fireworks not only in a moment, but in every waking day from the inside out. The freedom to be totally happy with only me was the freedom I was once searching for all along and yearning to feel and desired to have…needing nothing, yet having everything. On this night, under a cloudy beautiful sky, I felt it, and actually believed in it.

 

But oh, America, what a gift I was granted today. To be completely alone, without anyone, and no one, yet completely happy, liberated, and profoundly actually free. Thank You America. For sharing your grace, shining your light, and showing me that brotherhood and sisterhood can shine from sea to sea. With spacious skies, purple fireworks of majesties, I experienced the amber waves that the Universe shed with music from the sea, on me. What a dream to be radically happy, smiling for no reason, and totally high on my own sweet elixir and with my own self. Freedom, I found you. Not even a selfie could prove it was real, boast about, or say that it happened. Yet the liberation remains, even after the rockets shot off.

America, today you gave freedom. Today, I remembered the best gift I was granted and had all along. America, thank you. Standing overlooking the bay I grew up with, the beach I see daily, and the water I regularly swim in, I remembered the best and more real divine magic show ever made. I returned home, and saw, for the first time, a country that I actually felt a part of, and actually was proud to live in. Freedom is a choice we are all given. Through the perilous fight, with liberation, we can attain the land of the free, and the home of the heart that needs nothing for total satisfaction and ultimate glory. Thank you America, for lighting my world up today, and better in every other day after, and showing me that peace is possible, and that maybe one day we will be the land of the free and home of the happy brave people we are meant to be. Even after the bombs drop, the stars can still shine and burst forever. Tonight I celebrate me. Tonight I cheers to let freedom ring forever and always!

When Life Seems to Fall Apart…

About 2-4 years ago I had a massive transit happen that shifted everything in my life, in myself and caused me to reevaluate every to be true. What happened? Well I found Yoga, I mean real yoga, and began the process of getting out of the pose and normal everyday routine to discover something deeper… In that same year I lost everything and virtually every piece of my life fell apart: I got laid off, I had no job and was not able to get another easy job, my car broke, my cat died, my friends fell away, and old connections that were once meaningful randomly disappeared, as if vanished by thin air. My body changed, my choices changed, my socializing hours took a halt, and new peace was found in the simplicity of stillness. Life…well it took a drastic turn and all I had going for me was a beautiful beach I could sit on with unemployment money and some San Diego sunshine to ponder what the real purpose of life really was…

balnkly

It did not matter that everything fell apart, I was actually over joyed that finally the desk and prolonged hours of sitting was no longer a mandatory wake up drive and necessity. The negative people and late night bar activities that seemed to be the only social option faded, and finally I was able to get back to something so much better that no shot or one night stand option could ever satisfy. It was liberating for me to be totally free and able to choose a new beginning and finally be out of the toxic environment where working for a paycheck and a bottle of chardonnay at the end of the day seemed like the happy prize for sitting cramped, stuck, bored, and totally unfulfilled. What I did not know is something else was calling, and that need within me to move, do, act, and be creative as the happy soul I knew myself to be was finally ready to break through and become someone more in alignment with who I knew myself to be… That old world paradigm of get up, go to work, have a job, eat, sleep and do it again was a routine I was unwilling and unable to follow anymore. So in my loss, and with everything falling away and dying, I was left alone to sit, wonder, contemplate, and ponder what I was really seeking and where I could go, what I could do to actually live a life of meaning and purpose and really wake up daily and be happy….

A lot has happened since then, even more has changed, and I’ve developed on a higher road of understanding the real meaning of letting go, and realizing yourself once more… There is journey, and to get on it, often things crumble so you can rebuild to a better state….

…When life falls apart, things change, and it seems like nothing is going in your direction, it is easy to fall into a trap, hold on, and lie and cheat whatever is trying to change. When destruction happens, the world you knew tumbles, and you are left alone, in panic, with fear, it is a sign and a blessing to help you breakthrough and find a better road that will take you somewhere happier…. Change is inevitable, and when you avoid it, shit will surmount. There is no hiding what the Universe wants you to know. Though in the misery, the tangled world that becomes scary like a horror movie will be no easy walk in the woods, when you come out from the dark shells that have bound you, you will look back and remember and see why you had to experience the rough road and tough times to get you to a better place….  You can always find a better place than where you are.

There is always a better road, and easier way to handle things, and a more peaceful place you can be. When you find the right road that really works for you, it can be scary to get on it, trust it, and leave everything behind to find it…. When the Universe beckons you to awaken, life is easier when you follow the call to awaken your heart and live with your higher soul as a brighter and happier force…… Sometimes change is inevitable, and in this new age there is no hiding from the power that wants us all to live happier, be free, and love better….

May the Summer bring you fate, show you destiny, & may the changes, and twists and turns of fate steer you in a better direction. May you evolve and become the person you KNOW yourself to be…. May you trust your journey, whatever may come on it…. Happy Summer & enjoy the change  ❤ YES YOU CAN!!!

Presence & Perspective

I use to live a busy life. My type A personality would zoom around from thing to thing, check box to check box, and rush through everything to get it all done by the end of the day. I use to drive fast and speed and swerve when cars were going too slow. I use walk fast and rush, afraid I would not get to my destination on time. I use to be use busy wondering what was next, that I would often miss what was now. Its funny what the mind does when you focus on the future and forget about the moment that is now.That was then this is now.

What is it about life that causes us to rush through everything and always be onto the next thing? Human nature I suppose. The business only keeps us doing what’s next, or stressing that perhaps we may miss something in the process. There is a simplistic art in learning to slow down. Beyond that, I’ve noticed you are able to appreciate a lot more. Maybe a car ride does take longer, and maybe you are a few minutes late to work than normal…. so what? The day will still go on, your work will still be there, and I bet no one even noticed. Why not slow down, catch a breathe, view the window, take in the scene, and turn up the music? If you are inspired, how about sing? Enjoy the moment for what it is. You may be surprised what you see along the way. Shifting gears, taking moments to live eyes wide open can lead you to see so much more. What once seemed every day normal, may begin to feel every day new, or better, make a better story and moment for your day.

I was taking a stroll along the beach, like I do multiple times throughout my week, and in my life. For the first time ever at this particular beach I was at, I saw whales breech out of the water. They were quite active and stuck around on top of the water for a while. I stood still, planted my feet into the ground, and took a moment. I stopped. I saw. I enjoyed. I saw. I witnessed. Then I noticed many others walking straight, down the shoreline, on the sand, with no ability to turn their neck or dare to gaze beyond what was in front of them. It was an interesting moment. Here I was, doing my yoga dance on the sand, smiling, and watching the whales, and no one else seemed to care or notice. It blew my mind. There are always new things to see when you can change your perspective, and dare to move beyond where you think you are going.

Has society really become so linear that all you see is forward? Being present is a gift. A way to explore more, to see more, and to enjoy every moment possible we have in this short life. Take a drive and dare to turn your head and see… find movement towards freedom and get out of the straight line destination you think you need to be on. Take a walk, look around, and see the world for what it really is —> a beautiful place with many moments to soak up and enjoy, if you can move around, shake your head, get a little loose, and see it.
