The opinion of swans…

You’re just not there yet …

Existence hangs in a constant balance of every cycling cycles—life begets death, death births life…youth begets old age, and old age prepares the way for youth.

As we grow, mature and attempt to make a life for ourselves we’re often faced with underestimation from the generations who’ve preceded us. You know, the age old “you’re too young to understand” or my not-so-favorite favorite “when you get to be our age you’ll understand.”

I love the way they marvel, yet spat—at our inability to conform to a society of old standards, ways and thoughts of living, as if we are not a new generation, birth from the wombs of mothers of what is now the old struggle. Mothers, and fathers who are now accustomed to sporting their years of plumage in a world now teeming with hyperactive ugly ducklings covered in ruffled and half-plucked feathers.

Bare Naked Bodies

[interior & exterior renovations]

Standing to look at your reflection is hard—but only when your reflection looks nothing like the illusions modern societies insist one’s reflection should mirror. As a result, you cannot stand to look at your reflection; and thus, you could never fathom yourself to be all that you truly are and all of which you have the potential become.

To the root of the matter

Imagine—dying today and never completing your life’s mission, never fulfilling your life’s purpose. . . #tragic the thought         . . . is it not?

At your conception life was given to you—you received your one true mission, your one true purpose, your ultimate life goal. All of the latter only you can achieve by way of finding yourself.

Once you find yourself in this lonely world of faces and chaos of racing hearts there is nothing you cannot find: love, peace, truth, justice, freedom, happiness, fulfillment, wealth, courage…and so on…

See, when you find yourself you open up your very own path to eternal life in the most literal of senses—and it then becomes your duty to follow your mind and spirit through your various degrees to enlightenment, happiness, and wealth.

Success in life is not all about waiting until someone reaches down and hands you your next big break. No, life is all about harnessing your energies, emitting vibrations and tuning your frequencies to form and ride your own tsunami of a wave.

We live today with many expectations. You should expect nothing more from life than a journey—one which will take you high above the clouds one day and deep in the pits of hell the next. And whether each day is good or bad all depends on your vantage point. Are you trapped in a small box, a hall of deceiving mirrors, your own fantastical expectations or have you been like the eagle soaring high above the desert sands lighting atop pyramids?
