Unmasking Amidst the Masks
Put on your face mask, let down your heart’s mask.
Physically, we can’t get out.
We can’t escape the walls.
There are no opportunities to explore,
to discover, and to venture on to unprecedented experiences.
It becomes difficult to be lonely, solitary, and isolated.
But being stuck in the home propels you to become stuck in your thoughts.
“Why am I angry, sad, fearful?”
“Why am I rejected, betrayed, neglected?”
“If only... “
But the guiding map you need has always been there for you, in 5 simple words:
You are not your thoughts.
Do not become lost in the trap of self-induced war from forced social distance,
for resistance can only come from a place of lack.
You are not lack; you are not your wounds.
You are simply pure awareness that has become fixed to fit into molds and boxes and force. Inflicted upon yourself, introduced from others.
When you realize this power of simplicity and the simplicity of this power, you can see that you are abundance…
DIG DEEP, SWIM FAR, AND FLY HIGH INTO THE DEPTHS OF YOUR WONDERFUL PAST.
TRANSPARENCY CAN BE BEAUTIFUL WITH NO FILTERS, AS LONG AS YOU FILTER OUT THE CONDITIONED LENSES OF OTHERS.
EXPLORE THE BEAUTIES OF THIS MYSTERIOUSLY JOYOUS YET PAINFUL LIFE. INTERTWINE THE HIGHS AND THE LOWS OF IT ALL TO UNDERSTAND, CONNECT, AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
THE PARADOXICAL JUXTAPOSITIONS OF EXISTENCE FALL APART TO SYNCHRONOUSLY ALIGN BACK TOGETHER.
FIND THE JOYS IN MYSTERY AND THE MYSTERY IN JOYS. THESE ARE THE GROUNDBREAKING HORIZONS PATIENTLY WAITING TO BE EXPLORED, TO BE SEEN, TO BE FELT BY YOU.
“Who are you?”
“Why are you here?”
“What are you capable of?”
THERE IS ADVENTURE WAITING THERE.
THERE IS ADVENTURE WAITING HERE AND NOW.
EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS.
Change must not be your enemy.
Discover how older versions of yourself must die, in order to rebirth a newer version of yourself that attunes more fittingly into your current reality.
Although the anticlimactic neutrality from social, isolating distance challenges you, it also presents the possibility of personal liberation:
solitude provides opportunity for inner work.
You can be confidently alone without the loneliness.
Do not let stagnancy destabilize your inner solace and vision for empowerment.
Release your mask: release your need for control to fulfill others’ perceptions.
As the Earth heals itself from this pandemic, so can we.
Recognize the root of our inherent self.
Within our core lies a hidden freedom with the surrender of toxicity.
Return to your best perception; return to newfound abundance.
