So it’s been 10 days since I’ve last posted and you’re probably wondering where I’ve been. If you’re not wondering, well, you’ll find out anyway.
The last week and a half have been a little crazy for me. My parents came to visit me for the weekend, which was incredibly fun but also pretty tiring. My mom and I went to a spiritual workshop on Curanderismo, which was not only unbelievably incredible but also life changing. If you’re into this type of stuff, definitely look into it and see what’s available near you. I figured I had to share this because of the impact this single day had on my life.
Anyway, after our weekend adventures of spiritual workshops, outdoor activities, and lots of food, it was time to drop them off at LAX and get my life back in order. You know that feeling? That feeling when you’ve been running around non-stop and simply want a moment to sit? That’s how I felt. So, that Sunday night I relaxed and read a new book I recently picked up called “The Power of Love” by Osho. I recently discovered Osho, and let me tell you, I am already in love. He’s a philosopher, mystic, spiritual guru and an overall fascinating man. His thought, concepts and ideas about life, our consciousness and this universe are eye opening, inspiring and 100% awesome. I highly recommend you look him up on Amazon and read one of his books that speaks to you.
The past seven days I’ve been cleaning up my apartment, filming and running errands. I had to get so much in order that I barely had time to sleep, nevertheless blog. No worries, I’m back and better than before.
I’ve discovered a few things lately that I wanted to talk about. First being the importance of meditation. Every week I go to Kundalini Yoga (which is incredible btw) and it contains a 10 minute meditation at the end. This class makes me feel so alive, so blissful and so unbelievably happy I cannot even begin to put it into words. It makes me feel like, well, me. I feel as though at the core of our beings we are filled with unconditional love, compassion and well-being. Yet, due to so many distractions and conditionings in our society we begin to stray away from these core components. Hatred, competitiveness and brainwashing media is everywhere. These things are all distractions. We’re taught to be the best, be #1 and hate anyone who gets in the way of that. Whether that be in school, work or simply life status, these beliefs are often ingrained in us from a young age.
When we begin to step away from this programming we begin to realize who we truly are. Osho once said, “There is no greater ecstasy than knowing who you are”. This quote resonates with me on such a deep level. Being around the same types of people throughout our childhood almost forces us to be the same. Look around middle schools and even high schools. So many kids try to re-create the same look, style and even persona to fit in. Yet, we are all so different. Once we start to follow our hearts and do the things that make our souls light up, we see who we truly are. Throughout this past year I have become more of myself than I have ever been. I started doing what I wanted in all aspects of my life. I started following my heart and soul in what made me happy, and it has guided me to the most incredible people, places and opportunities.
So I guess where I was going with this was….don’t worry if you feel different. Thank gosh you do! I never felt like I fit in throughout my childhood. I felt as though I was special. I had something different to offer, and I sure as hell was not going to do something just because everyone else was doing it. Look where I am now. Creating my reality based on my beliefs, my passions and my inspirations. If you’re ever feeling like nothing others are doing around you resonates with you, smile. Smile because you’re different. Start creating. Start creating or doing what feels good and right to you. Look at some of the biggest businesses and their creators. SO many of these people started their own thing. They did so because the “normal” things to do weren’t interesting to them. Think about it. How can you start something different or be something different if all you do is follow the actions of those around you? You can’t. The only way to be something unique is to do something unique. So, whatever that is, whatever makes your heart feel full and your eyes glow, go do it.
I’ll see you soon, you passionate creator.
