We are all born onto this physical plane of existence with the knowledge that we have potential for more. This causes so much strife within our spirit. As children we are constantly using our imagination and pretending things are different. This is a way for our subconscious to explore various possibilities. Its kind of like an escape. This is also a big reason why children are often so happy go luck. Even if some of them possibilities would appear like a fairy tale. Our minds, even at a young age, is aware that there is much more then the world we see.
When we get a bit older into our teenage years we begin to forget all of our childish ways. We push all of our imagination off, and are taught to grow up. The childish ways are behind us and are to be forgotten. This is when our spirit begins to feel caged. The escape from exploring our minds eyes as children are no more. Now all that's left is a spirit stuck inside of a limited body. We are not our body. We are our spirit. We are that part deep down within ourselves that tells us when something is right or wrong. We are the voice inside of our mind, and the heart felt feeling of love. This is us! Not a collection of flesh and bone. This is why outside appearance should not matter. This is why we feel caged.
Now into adulthood we are fully set in our ways. There is no imagination anymore. It is now a long lost memory. All thoughts revolve around money, jobs, sex, paying bills, getting the newest technology, etc. These are not the things we should have our minds on, but this is the way society brings us up. If we were free to remain our childish selves and still grow up to become adults we would have such a large knowledge about the things beyond.
We are all lost in this fog of life here on earth. Earth is an amazing place, but we all know deep down inside that we are not meant to live the current way most of us are living. We attach ourselves to drugs, addictions, eating, depression, anger, etc. All because it is a means of escape, but these forms of escape are only digging us in deeper. What needs to happen is for us to go back to simpler times. Take some time out each day to sit in silence. Try to explore nature on your next day off work. Begin planting a garden and work with the earth. There are various ways that will help our minds become at ease. This will help our spirit selves to escape a bit, and feel connected with everything. This is the "all" that connects everything. Take a bit of time to explore a few meditation techniques. Find one that fits you best, and make some time each day for it. Release the worries of everyday life, and embrace the fact that each day in this reality is a gift. Most of us waste these gifts with being blind and not opening our eyes to the truth. Embrace the gift of life here on earth and learn. Each day is a new chance to experience something grand! Find that mystery and explore! Have an adventure of a lifetime in the freedom of knowing that the mundane things of life do not matter. All that matters is love, learning, and sharing that love and lesson.
Much Love & Light To You,
