Some places are more common than others. Popular spots like the beach or by the river. Maybe one drives around to relax and even listens to some soothing music. Others meditate and still others find peace in keeping themselves busy. Once I met my bliss I wanted no other than to stay in that reality. I wanted to lose myself where there is no time. Where my mind can wonder freely. Where there is no worries or pain. Tonight I felt so overwhelmed with life. I had to talk myself down. I had to tell myself everything will be ok. I had to tell myself that I can do this. Then my mind wondered looking for that place. I remember it well. The place where my heart is full of love and there is no such thing as judgment or time. Where the greatest love I've ever known lives and where my bliss is found. I wonder sometimes why I keep thinking in order to find it I must find the person who led me to it. I mean I know the way now. Why do I have such a problem finding it on my own? What stops me from allowing myself to go there solo? I want it so badly...bliss, peace, love.
It's always nice to have someone in our lives that reminds us of our natural state. Of the love that resides in all of us. The love that we are built on. Why we exist. But here on the Earth plane in this duality we are programmed to seek outside of us as if we are missing a piece to allow us to function through our heart space. The thing that makes us feel whole. Feel loved. Even though we are always loved and whole. The trickery is the illusion on this plane. Where we are surrounded by separatedness and where we seem to be on this daily struggle to find what we are missing. Some of us are searching for healing. Some are searching for love. Some have a vendetta with god and family as a result of pain and suffering. Some and very few know the truth.
So what is the truth? I can not tell you the truth as truth is subjective mostly. It's something you must find for yourself. I can say that YOUR truth is in that same place most of us are too scared to operate from on our own. It's the place we can access source/god/love and yes..peace and bliss. Well sure anyone can show you the way but you are the only one who can operate from that space. No one can keep you there. It seems so many times we get stuck in "poppies" on the yellow brick road of LOVE and don't seem to ever make it to the Emerald City. Conveniently that's green too as is our Heart Chakra while the yellow brick road is yellow as is our Solar Plexus; the power center; the space that tells us who we are and where our confidence and self esteem are formed. It is also the place where we can choose to give our power away or retain it for ourselves. Our power to choose to love and function confidently from a place of love. Most of us only try to find love in the poppies. You know that feeling of new love. It's bliss too. For a short while. Then the newness wears off. You are seeing clearly again. Life and time return to normal programming and the ebb and flow are again directing your path with your ego (minds-heart) making all the decisions. You never did make it to the Emerald City. Almost.....but is it enough?
One thing we have all learned on Earth is that one ABSOLUTE. Everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Many of us know by now that this is normal. This is what we are here for; we are here to learn and grow as a soul. In growing we can't stay the same long and many times that means we can't stay with the same people. At least the relations around us evolve as we do. With that said, we must find the courage of the lion to venture beyond our mind-heart and find our heart-mind. That space where truth, bliss, peace and love reside. Way beyond the fairy tales and illusion of a happy ever after is true love after all. Some of us can't find it when in fact it is right under our nose. It's every where we are. There is no need to look outside of ourselves as if we already do not have it.
So there I was finding my self longing. It is like waking up from a dream or waking up in the poppies. Realizing life just passed you by. That you had a mission and you need to get back on the road again. That yellow brick road from your power space to your heart space. Don't be confused with others heart space. Not yet. The only way to find that place of love, peace, bliss and ultimately our truth is to find your heart space first. Where you are connected to source; to all and to love always. It's really very simple. If you find yourself in anothers heart space you will only be connected to them. When you find yourself there it's amazing at first I know. You're in their heart space. Where their love source resides. Where they are connected to all and you are surround by their love. Where they will hold you in their heart for just as long as you will let them hold you there. Until....your heart space calls you. As it will. It needs your attention and love. You can't be a part from it long. You can't live in the poppies. You will eventually realize you are missing something again and when you do realize what that one thing is you are missing you will be on a new path. There you are starting over. You realized you were walking someone else's yellow brick road. You realized again you need to change your focus. You may even realize, as I did in my moment of longing, that all you need is to find love within; source. If you find yourself in that place. That place of longing. That moment you want to find that love again and you are looking for that missing piece. Remember that one missing piece we are all here searching for is already in your reach. It is as easy as clicking your heals together and focusing on "home".
