The universe through my eyes.
The world through my eyes.
Life through my eyes.
This is my way of seeing and sharing.
Did another calendar year passed us by?
Or did we take it by the hand and lead it with courage and bravery?
Did we hide away and make it all up as we went along hoping that no one would notice there was someone else's script in our hands? Or did we write our manifestos while singing them out at the tops of our lungs?
Were we slaves to our fears and rules no one could possibly live by or did we set ourselves free from constrictions and soul killing ways?
Did you watch others with envy and spite or did you nurture yourself and your dreams? Did you covet or did you create?
Were you able to fully release yourself from your own bondage or did you wrap the ropes tighter still?
Did we meet truth and stare it in the eyes to know it well?
Or did we allow ourselves to be comforted by lies and soft manipulations? The ones we tell ourselves or the ones told to us that we dare not question out of fear of losing things that never truly were.
Did you grow?
Did you learn?
Did you impart your own wisdom?
Did you fight?
Did you make peace?
Did you cry hard or soft tears?
Did you laugh loud and full?
Did you love with every fibre of your being?
Did you see with open eyes?
Did you hear with ears that wanted to understand?
Did you speak with a tongue that spoke truth, no matter the outcome?
Did some accept you while others turned you away?
Did you turn others away?
My real question is, 'Did you live?'
I mean truly live with a fire in your heart that could incinerate whatever doubts came your way?
Did you make your own path without following or borrowing from another , breathing forces of life into all you create? Or did you take fallen scraps to make due while calling it 'new & improved' in your overcompensations for your own choices or stale and feigned originalities?
I ask strong and invasive questions.
They're bound to make some uncomfortable.
I had to ask them of myself.
As I answered each question I stood taller.
My spine feels as if it's made of tree roots no mortal could ever destroy. Stronger, fiercer, and connected to the Earth deeper and further than I have gone thus far.
My ego is in-check and bounces from bruised to bewildered and then functions well as a tamed and loving wolf at first appearance. I save rabid and protective huntings and powers for emergencies only. You cannot kill your ego so stop trying. You're human, without it you would die. Understand it, tame it, let it protect you, not overtake you.
Look back over your shoulder at the path we've chosen to tread, or blazed for ourselves.
Are you going to wake up in 2018 a better soul than who you were when you rested your head in 2017? That's the only question you should ask yourself and the just one or two more?
If you answered 'yes' then what will you do, what measures will you take to continually grow and expand?
If the answer is 'no' then what are you going to do about it?
What are you going to do about it all?
2018 is waiting and your soul's purpose is getting restless to be fulfilled.
