Just got home from the most upbeat, exciting and fun two hours of music I've been to in a long long time. I even was able to dance for several songs this time.. woot for getting better! I'm gonna pay for this tomorrow .. worth it!!!!

Now, since I was not allowed to post on another blog.. I've got something to say.. so I'm saying it here.

Maybe I should shut up.. but you pointed to something that I have spent some serious time working on.

Since I almost died recently, I've done a lot of soul searching and work. I know who and what I am now.. the good and the bad. I try to work through the bad things and create the person that I want to be. However, lying to yourself is not always bad.

Take affirmations. Often they are a lie that you tell yourself until it becomes reality. You can always choose your destiny. You can even choose to change your present and your past. The past cannot be changed? You say. Yes, yes it can. Well, maybe not the things that happened but you can change your reaction to what happened. You can change how you feel about what happened to you or the things that you did. You can change how you react to new things happening. So, lying to yourself is not always a bad thing.

Finding the truth of who you are, who you have been and who you want to be is a big step in spiritual growth. Tell your story any way you choose.

You, and only you, create your reality. So what might be true to you now, was not necessarily true a few years ago. A few years ago I was not worried about being healthy because I WAS healthy. Now my goal is to get healthy. See? My reality has shifted. Back then I could say, "I'm healthy as a horse." and it would be true. Now, when I say that, I'm lying to myself until it becomes the truth.

So, indeed, finding your truth is important, but so is understanding how those things became your truth.

What is my truth? I'm a student of humanity. I'm much like a good dog. Loyal, loving and always happy to see my people. I'm a bitch. I'm a child. and I'm a shit stirring witch from east bumfuck Oregon. But there's so very much more. My lies have stopped being lies.. they are becoming my reality.

A most unusual and interesting perspective. Introspection can be a good thing and provide healing and closure, or at least resolution.

I also am not allowed to comment in the mentioned blog, but I do have a revelation
for 99% of the people in the world who don't already know or understand this...
But the whole fucking world is built upon lies and deceit
It's how you live your life and interact with others that enable you to make it through your own life..Honesty is NOT always the best policy..
Everybody cribs to some extent in their lives

Fake It Til You Make It.....

I must have missed what is going on while I was busy finding my own life realities.. isn't it amazing what we learn and how determined we become when we discover there might be a lot less time than we imagined?
So take care, be well and really live your life my friend.

Skwirl... thanks for turning what was to be a comment in the blog (you gotta be referring to mine) into a great blog!

The comment settings were set to allow ALL, but it changed somehow. I didn't change it... so a possible glitch? Anyway, I apologize for the inconvenience and I checked the setting again... all comments allowed.

All that's really important is that we come to our own self-truth... the ways are as numerous as their are individuals of which there are billions. We do change as times and situations occur, but not all change is active. Change is a given as we mature, but the choice/decision to change, get to know yourself is an active one which is the one I think is most important.

I think you have been far more honest with yourself than the average bear, er uh Skwirl. I have been so full of BS it's embarrassing and have to this rather late, so I'm bumbling my way through it... obviously not a real pretty picture. Still have a great deal to learn... one of the ways I do this is to think out loud here. It's people like you who provide needed eye-openers which help a great deal. Thanks and a greenie on the way!

A big thank you to everyone who took time to participate in the discussion. I did find it to be a very interesting process. Since it is such an integral part of my development at this stage in life.. I love discussing it and finding out what everyone else does to move themselves closer to Nirvana.

I love you guys!
