I am Light, I am Light.
I am NOT The things my family did.
I AM NOT the voices in my head.
I AM NOT the pieces of the brokenness inside.
I AM LIGHT.
I’m not the mistakes that I have made
or any of the things that cause me pain.
I am not the pieces of the dream I left behind,
I AM LIGHT.
I AM NOT THE COLOR OF MY EYES.
I AM NOT THE SKIN ON THE OUTSIDE.
I AM NOT MY AGE, I AM NOT MY RACE
MY SOUL INSIDE IS ALL LIGHT.
I AM DIVINITY DEFINED.
I AM A GOD ON THE INSIDE.
I AM A STAR, A PIECE OF IT ALL.
I AM LIGHT.
Your Life is the way it is because you lost trust in yourself and turned to others because you thought you did something wrong.
You’ve been creating in reaction to what you think others want from you or want you to become.
The truth is, you never did anything wrong.
In the very beginning, Spirit became aware of itself and asked the question, “Who AM I?”
That question gave birth to Duality.
ALL THAT WAS exploded into a billion billions of itself and set out to find the answer.
You Are ALL THAT WAS!
You set out on a journey to answer that question and began to forget who You are.
This is survival for me. This is how I understand my life and who I am. I feel like I’ve been so many different people. There are so many layers it’s hard to remember the true center. I have written and closed so many chapters, I have to remind myself of who I really am how I get here.
It’s been a journey one step after another. I record my steps so I can remember my progress. It’s surprising to look back on. Sometimes I run into the same thoughts, it helps to see the process right in front of me.
I have to remind myself of so many things on a daily basis. I have to keep switching perspectives, knowing which place to focus on at the right time. Keeping it all in balance, letting it out so my brain doesn’t overload.
The Mind has too many webs, sometimes its hard to stay connected. It’s like a computer with Too many tabs open. Fragmented thoughts are frustrating. Sync it together.
So many plans, sometimes they escape me. I have to see it in front of me. I need encouragement. I need reminders. I need to see progress.
There’s no such thing as finished.
These are my emotions, my experience the way I perceive them. Experiences cannot be wrong. There’s never a chance to talk about all the things that are truly on your mind. If I spoke out loud all the emotions I felt in a single day, I’m not sure if I would even want to listen..
Some days it’s all internal….Some days I purposefully try to drown out thoughts so I can just be present. I don’t always want to be caught up in self.
This is a survival skill. I sharpen with experience. I don’t try to be too deep. This is just the way I think.
It’s essential as much as sleeping, eating, breathing. Push it out even when lazy, tired. Even after the experience is long over and done, write it out. It means something.
