What is life, what is this, and what truly matters?
These are all questions that I have asked myself throughout my journey, what is this, what am I, who am I?
I'm a deep thinker, I was most likely a philosopher at some point in a past life, and yes I've thought about my past lives too, I don't believe this is my first time here, that's for sure...
So today, I wanted to just share some of my thoughts with you about life, and how I perceive life, because I view life in a very different way than I think most others do, and through sharing that, it might help you to see life in a better, more beautiful way as well.
When I was seven years old, I had a profound awakening experience when I witnessed the traumatic event of my Grandmother passing away right before my eyes. I realized on that night a few things that would change my whole life forever.
I would like to share with you some of the things that I realized on that night, and that will hopefully help you on your own journey.
1. I realized on a deeply profound level that we were all one.
We all come from the same source, we are all one at a profoundly deep level. We all are expressions of the universal energy that is all of life. This was the biggest thing I realized that night; that I was not separate, although it feels like that in the human body, we are all in this together, we are all one.
2. I realized that the things we acquire, and the money we have doesn't matter.
At the end of my Grandmother's life, I didn't care about how much stuff she had, what kind of car she drove, or the clothes she wore, or how much money was in her bank. All that mattered to me was the love she had for me, and the love for others. I realized that the only thing that mattered was LOVE.
3. I realized that my life wasn't about me specifically...
But it was about the impact that I had, and the people I inspired along the way. That was what mattered at the end of my life; the people I inspired. None of my material possessions would matter, the impact I had on other's lives is what would matter at the end.
4. I realized that no one knew what I knew yet.
And this became very clear to me the older I got, but at that time, I didn't say anything to anyone, because it wasn't time yet... Fast forward 20 years, and now it's time to start talking about this stuff. So here I am, sharing what I know, and how I perceive reality, which is beautifully awesome!
So through all these realizations, I have come to realize that life is a dream, but we have all forgotten that it's a dream, and take life way more seriously than it was ever intended to be... We are not here to suffer or live in pain and poverty, we are meant to enjoy our lives, live in peace and harmony!
If life really is just a dream, then what really matters at the end? And I think the only real answer to that is Love.
Love is the only thing that matters in the end. The love we had, and shared with others, the love for our friends, family, and animals. The love we showed to our home, Mother Earth, and nature. Love is what matters.
So if life is a dream, and none of the stuff we think matters, actually matters, then let us remember to love, and be kind to each other, and show respect to each other, as we are all in this very convincing dream together, and we might as well put our differences and opinions aside, and just love!
Thank you all for reading this, I hope you have a fantastic day!
With Love and Light,
