Floating by

Today I just got up and decided to go and sit by the sea, to be in the cold wind, to sit in the winter sun and to just watch the world go by…to be in the moment and at peace.

My soul and body were telling me for a while to take a break, to step away from the ‘package’ aka the mind and all its rambling repetitive daily thought patterns. But like most, I ignored it.

I feel completely re-energised from just being in nature and for feeling the cold elements. From just sitting and observing the moment, it reminded me that passing clouds and passing people are like thoughts they float by and that’s it. Everything passes unless we choose to cling on and attach things to it. Then through choice, we continue to suffer through our attachments.

Let life be, let it float by and go with it.

Bare yourself to the world

We can only truly be ourselves if we let go of all the roles the mind makes us play. Presenting this false image to the outside world, the subterfuge that we engage in daily…masking ourselves in fear of the real person being seen.

To be truly ourselves we have to quit acting and start just being. We have to be brave enough to be brutally truthful and faithful to the person we really are. We have to step away from the charade and become the naked version that we hide.

The different hats we wear to act out all those stories, that our ego wants us to be, only mask the real you and me.

We suffer behind these masks and facades…where the real person is crying to be seen.

Let go of stories, throw out the costumes and bare the real you to the world and end the suffering each acted out role causes us and others.
