Moving Forward… Day 2

moving-forward-day-2

The following was my good morning post, but I find that it fits perfectly with my blog series about moving forward, because it’s a crucial step in moving toward a soul free life.  It’s about reminding yourself what’s important, because we live in a world that tries to distract us and sell us an ideal of what our lives are supposed to be. We set up these false expectations in our mind of what we’re supposed to do, how we’re supposed to act, what we’re supposed to obtain to have the life we’re supposed to live, but it’s all bullshit.  It’s a distraction to what’s important, and the true reason there’s so much disappointment in the world.  Disappointment comes from unrealized expectations. 

So, here’s my post. 

Good morning, world. Smile. Take a step. Breathe. Even though it hurts, Smile. Take another step. Breathe. Love.

Love the life you’ve been given. We only have one. Let go of the stupid, vain ideals that we think we’re supposed to have, because they will rob us of the life that is available.

Connecting heart to heart, soul to soul, spirit to spirit, smile to smile, body to body, lips to lips, in those perfect moments when the universe shifts and our internal, eternal, and ethereal eyes and hearts are open and we experience love, real love, even if for just a moment. That is what living is about. Those moments.

We spend the rest of our lives chasing vanities that mean nothing, missing what’s truly important filling our minds, hearts, and time with useless shit. When it doesn’t satisfy us, we then try to dull the emptiness with vices… sex, alcohol, drugs, obsessions, and addictions. But they too fail.

We are more than body. More than mind. We are souls…spirits…ethereal creatures. Our time here is temporary, but the essence of who we are is existential, beyond this plane of existence.

Love. Love for ourselves. Love for others. Love…soul-to-soul… That’s living. It’s what we draw from to love our soulmates, love our children, love our friends, love humanity.

If we are empty and our wells are dry, then from what can we draw? Stop the foolishness. Let go of the vanities. Live today, in the day, and love what’s real. Leave the bullshit. Get rid of the vampires. Stop playing with things that don’t matter. Time continues to move and you don’t have long. Stop wasting it on bullshit. Stop listening to your body and mind, and listen to your soul. It’s crying out.

Sm. Take a step. Breathe. Love.

Till next time,

~T.L. Gray
