Opening minds and hearts to Hope and Inspiring Change to Lead a Creative Life!
I had just finished a 7-day online course called Inner Engineering by a guy name Sadghuru. To my surprise, he had the same message as another guy named Markus Rothkranz. I have been reading tons of books, listening to audio books, watching videos, and reading. These 2 guys have a great message and is just what i needed at this moment in time. Take a look at them (in the pictures below) and if you find yourself judging, try to stop. I am telling you, they are BOTH really out-of-the box from what I know and they are super awesome! This is not about religion, it is about your life and how you live it and what you choose to believe. Not about the labels we put on your god, my god, their goddesses, your jesus, my astrology, your prayers, my meditation, etc. It is just about the simple act of BEING. My new motto... "Breath.Believe.Be." It's purrfect! Isn't everyone searching for happiness? Of course. Who wants to feel like crap? NOBODY! Everyone is continually searching for that happiness. It is right in front of us, as I am learning. I was restricting my own self with my own ideals and thoughts. Sure there are always rules and regulations, but you can still be free with your own thoughts and how you choose to live and what you choose to think and believe.
These 2 guys could not be any more polar opposites and LOOK totally different than each other, but YES they deliver the SAME message. I am not saying go read all their books and soak up their message. You will search for what you want and need in your own time. It is not for me to push it on you. I am just telling you about a very vivid example and experience I am having with letting go and dealing with our egos, thoughts, emotions, our physical body, and our consciousness. As a humanity, a family, we have become so addicted to being UN-conscious day to day, same rig-a-ma-roll, same electronics, same food, same small group of people, same daily routine. Perhaps if we just think of adding some spice AND like on Halloween when you buy a pumpkin and carve it, what do we do, we create our own vision of what the pumpkin should look like, right? That's all we have to do with ourselves! It's fantastic!
So I left on my road trip and passed some big-ass billboards that were advertising, zip-lining, caves, ropes, dirt bikes and it looked REALLY fun! I thought, I have to go. So , I did. I stayed in Louisville and ventured to this place. http://www.louisvillemegacavern.com/. If you like to be physically active like i do and/or if you have kids, this place is great AND it is less than 5hrs from Chicago AND there are cheap hotels you can stay at by the airport. Besides the FUN factor, I have been working on conquering my fears. Any time you try something NEW, I think we all get that weird feeling in our gut, right? Our ego is saying no don't do it, i feel uncomfortable, but your spirit says, go for it! I was tormented all weekends by these 2 thoughts/feelings. I know repetition is good when you are trying to change something, so I kept ignoring my ego that was telling me no, and went with my rah-rah- cheerleader spirt that said yes! AND, I am happy to report, I feel great! I tried to capture my zip-lining for you, the video is dark, but you can imagine. The depths of this cave were huge and you cannot see them but please imagine.
As always, thanks for reading and listening.
