Some of us have words spoken over us from the past that are like ghosts hanging around. Words from our school teachers, words from our unenlightened parents and siblings, and words from our religious leaders which we still allow many years after the fact to rule our thoughts and our productivity in life in the present time, in the now.
The operative word here is 'allow'. We have to actively disallow this and shut the door on the hate speech of the past, put it in a box and burn it so all that is left is ash.... lay it down.
I was in the war zone of life. Photography helps me see the beauty again and from every perspective possible. Writing helps me get whats inside outside.
I am aware I am awake and I know I must not get so low that I can't see the beauty in the bricks life throws at me.
I used to meditate with the sun each dawn as often as possible for my health. Those days are over now as I have taken the sun and its energy into me and its time to give it back out now to others in healing and Love, when and where and however I can. I seek a freedom from the pain of life. I work hard to stay on top of this daily and taking images of nature is one of the best ways to stay so in touch with the intricacies of what life can manifest if you let it happen.
