I’ve been quiet…

I have been quiet for a while, not posting as much. Feeling as though I just want to let go of everything, let go of any commitments or anything that I have to do. Just be. And when I’m like that, people always wonder  “why isn’t she doing anything” “she’s just sitting there she could be doing something”. And I feel like it’s such an ignorant statement because there could be something much greater going on inside one’s self. And it’s amazing how us humans are institutionalised to ‘doing’, it’s a part of our socio-economic system, we have to do something be somewhere, with things expected from us, we’re always living with these barriers around us, which at the end takes away from our freedom. And I’m not a doing machine, I’m a feeling machine. I’m a human. And it’s amazing to just be in the moment and feel because I’m constantly evolving. It’s about accepting and working with yourself as you evolve, it’s about living, loving, and being in every moment, not necessarily caught up with ‘doing’.

I trust myself, I trust my heart, I trust my internal dialogues, my internal feelings, my internal worlds, connecting with them. And even though I may seem quiet, inactive, there’s something much greater going on, evolving inside me. I appreciate and I am blessed for the times where I’m active, inactive, in the light, in the dark, or somewhere in between that I don’t even know. Because actually they’re not the labels we give them of ‘light’ or ‘dark’, because they all help each other to form me.

You have all inside yourself, listen to your heart, body and mind because they’re all one, they’re all connected. When you don’t have external mediums communicating to you, you start to naturally communicate more with yourself, tuning in to yourself. When you let go of ‘doing’ of what you’re expected, of hearing, of following, of what you ‘have’ to do, you’ll find that going deeper into yourself, there’s clarity within your vision. You’ll get a better idea of what you really want, that is where you find inspiration within your self, in your inner universe because everything is really there. And once you’ve entered that place inside yourself, that is only 1% of what’s inside you, because inside you, there’s everything. And people often forget about that, and get on with their everyday lives without accessing their deeper self perhaps in a way they could do or to a degree that they could do, and once they’ve done that, I believe, that magical things start to happen you find what you want because you are more clear to yourself, you start to attract the right things for you, you see things you didn’t see before, you feel things you didn’t feel before, you’ll hear things you didn’t hear before. You find inspiration inside yourself.

Do you put all your trust in the ‘experts’…?

Do you automatically trust in the experts when information comes you? What I mean by ‘expert’ is the person with the PHD because you may believe that they know more than you, the police officer because you believe that they can protect you, the bus drivers because they know where they are going. That internet passage on the existence of God should totally be believable, so you don’t have to think too much about it. Don’t think for yourself, have the information provided for you. Take it, eat it, just don’t think about it. That is how the media feeds us everyday. Feeding us fear, desire, and emotion for us to consume.

You need to learn to trust in yourself and in your heart before trusting logic. Logic is only worth something when we put a value to it with our hearts. But logic can never put value to our hearts.

What makes someone an expert has to be more than just a paper saying ‘doctor’ or ‘teacher’, learn to trust yourself before others!

An example to demonstrate what I mean is the controversial Milgram Experiment, testing people’s obedience to authority. The people automatically trust the person in the white coat because of course, he ‘knows’ more…

When this experiment was first done in 1961 in the USA, the shocking results show that ‘65% of the volunteers continued to play their part as ‘teacher’ right to 450 volts, even after the victim’s screams and silence…In Munich, it was 85%…In other words, 3 out of 4 men will be ready to torture and kill to order without questioning’. Is this all for the name of science? 

‘ this experiment shows – to the point where established anonymous authorities like ‘the state’, ‘science’, or even ‘the revolution’ can make everything legitimate by the way of a rubber stamp, white coat or armband’.

Another example is that how everything in the diet fitness world is so ‘factual’. In order to build a load of muscle, of course you need excess calories and you need to use very high weights for lower reps. Eugen Sandow, a Victorian bodybuilder (pictured below), apparently used to train with only 5lb dumbbells in the morning, and stated ‘I am myself no believer in a special diet, still less in a rigid one, as necessary while training…I endeavour to have my meals at regular hours, and prefer that they shall be simple and easy of digestion.’

Just because a fitness trainer claims this and that or a dietitian promotes a new bar that can turn you around overnight and makes you forget that nature (fruit and vegetables) exist. Or the ones who claim that fruit will turn into fat if you don’t burn it off. Really? Find what works for you, and sticking to nature won’t let you down (as cliche as it may sound).

In conclusion, analyse information, (whether it’s on the news, in a book or said by the president), don’t just digest it. You are a free being.
