~love and freedom~
"You made this?" I asked a little surprised.
She nodded innocently.
"This is so beautiful."
Her lips curved into the widest of smiles I had seen in the two years of our marriage.
"Do you really think it's good?" she asked.
"It is beautiful. I never knew you could sketch and paint so well."
"Umm, my parents wanted me to do something better with my career. They thought art is a waste of time. I needed to get a good job so I can get a good boy in the future."
"And they chose me!" I teased
I walked up to her and just held her for a long time. I could feel her sink in and hug back tighter.
"Thank you." she whispered.
"Getting me that art stuff."
She walked back into the kitchen while I stood there unable to speak. The topic changed at dinner but I sat there watching this talented young lady who thanked me for just letting her follow her heart. I wanted to tell her- .
Your thank you tell a lifetime of stories. The times when you picked up a pencil and was told you weren't meant to do that. It tells me of all the artwork you left incomplete because you felt you weren't good enough. Of the times where all you asked for is to be yourself and all you heard was - not like that. It tells me of the dreams that felt like crimes, of the brushes that broke, paints thrown and canvases burnt. I see your wings hurt and your flight curbed. I don't know how love works but I do know that it starts by setting the one you love, free.

After the moment of self realization there was never an urge to find peace elsewhere but my own old soul. -Aashi

Did I tell you
that I am pretty sure,
one of these days
we will definitely lose
all our bits and pieces
to this mad rush.
So for today,
if I hold on to you,
my arms wrapped
around your frame
maybe a bit tighter
maybe a little longer,
would you hold me back
the same way
and allow me to
breathe you in?
Or would you ask me
to let go because
you need to leave?
Maybe there is a train to be caught,
a meeting to be reached,
important work to be done
and you are already late.
Or because you really have no idea
if we, if you,
are running towards something
or away from it.
Did I tell you,
that I am pretty sure,
that the coffins built out
of regrets weigh the heaviest
with the weight of

When we are attached to anything we may experience things like:
And we experience these emotions because somewhere inside of ourselves we have bought into the lie that without obtaining or keeping (fill in the blank with an object, a goal, a dream, or another person) we will not be whole. Which then brings about our suffering.
Therefore, I want to encourage us to LET GO and live free by removing the chains we place on ourselves by attaching who we are to the desired outcome we crave. Reminding ourselves that it is absolutely possible to be deeply involved without being attached to any desired outcome.
Let go, be free, and live a life worth living by being your true self.
It is impossible to be here in this human experience and not hurt ourselves and others. We all make mistakes, we blow it big time, we lose foresight, we allow ourselves to shut the counsel of loved ones out in order to hold on to what we believe to be true, we lose our cool and misuse our words, we assume and react, we betray ourselves by saying "yes" when we really mean "no", we stay in marriages and relationships that harm both ourselves and the other person because of fear, judgments and familiarity, and we fail to show up authentically because we buy into the illusion of fear and the idea that vulnerability makes us weak.
Beloved, as we journey along, we make various poor decisions, often blinded in one way or another, that creates pain and suffering in our life and sometimes in the lives of others. In spite of this fact, however, that doesn't mean we are evil or even bad (I am not saying evil people do not exist, but I do not believe that the majority of people are evil in intent and motivation. I believe we lose our way, we close our eyes, we mismanage our vulnerability, and that leads us to make bad decisions.), it just means we are human beings capable of making erroneous decisions, and we must discipline ourselves, heal and humble ourselves to the refinement process of positive personal and spiritual development.
With that being said, I am sincerely sorry to those who I have hurt and failed along my journey. Please forgive me.
Toxic relationships are dangerous to your health; they will literally kill you. Stress shortens your lifespan. Even a broken heart can kill you. There is an undeniable mind-body connection. Your arguments and hateful talk can land you in the emergency room or in the morgue. You were not meant to live in a fever of anxiety; screaming yourself hoarse in a frenzy of dreadful, panicked fight-or-flight that leaves you exhausted and numb with grief. You were not meant to live like animals tearing one another to shreds. Don't turn your hair gray. Don't carve a roadmap of pain into the sweet wrinkles on your face. Don't lay in the quiet with your heart pounding like a trapped, frightened creature. For your own precious and beautiful life, and for those around you — seek help or get out before it is too late. This is your wake-up call! - Bryant McGill
Wherever we find our treasure, we also find our hearts. Wherever we find our hearts, we also find our lives. Wherever we find our lives, we also find the condition of our minds.
Everything begins with where we invest our thought-life; change our minds, change our lives.
Where and in what, are you investing yourself in? What is your life becoming as a result of your investment?
We are committed to raising you not to starve with a need to be liked, so that you're free from overshadowing all your other needs and aspects of yourselves. We are healing ourselves, precious ones, so you don't grow up feeling so inadequate that you frantically go out into the world manipulating perception, adapting and abandoning yourselves in order to get your aching fix of validation. We are digging deep into the wounds that once had us blinded and fooled, broken and convinced we were "too much" of someone else's opinion of bad or "not enough" of another's opinion of good. We are doing the work, Princesses, the not so popular soul work, because we know what it's like to waste unrepeatable time on trying to "fix" what others couldn't appreciate about us.
We need you to know that we are determined, beloveds, to rise ourselves from the ashes of our valley's of brokenness, so you can have an example of true wholeness, security, confidence and healthy vulnerability.
Darlings, we want you to be raised confident in the use of your voice. We want you to be raised in a world where women are equally celebrated for being both empathetic but assertive. We need you to see us exercise healthy boundaries and assert our "no" as confidently and unapologetically as our "yes". So, hear me Angels when I say, we are your Mother's, Aunties and Grandmother's, and we won't slack on our responsibility of healing, of practicing, of renewing our minds daily so you unapologetically grow into healthy, gentle, kind, wise, empathic, assertive and boundary-ful Queens.
We love you and we're healing, growing, and reprogramming our minds so we can raise you into wholeness not aged brokenness.
The Queens of the world
I am many things, of which I offer no apology for.
Somethings are just noise, loud chaotic noise meant to distract you from manifesting your divine purpose. SILENCE the noise, SHUT IT OUT, and focus on the finish line.
They'd kill to watch you fall, scrape your face on the concrete and remain down, drowning in failure and misery. That's why you get up after every blow, like Mohammad Ali said "Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even." Live your life like a champion, B.
I whisper to myself: "you are the first of your family to pursue this path, be gentle with yourself, you cannot know that which you have not learned". This is my way of trying not to run rampant into self-condemnation and counterproductive self-critism (which is rooted in my egos expectation of unrealistic perfection), which I'm guilty of afflicting myself with, far too often, even now. "Nothing in this dimension, in this physical existence, in this ego-driven world is perfect, Tanya", I speak to myself. "To expect perfection of yourself, of others and of the world around you, will only disappoint and wound you", I further encourage myself. "Learn, heal, observe, serve, and continue to awaken into your divine identity". "Don't crucify yourself for journeying, for choosing the path less followed, for choosing to be the first of generations that came before you to travel this path, don't drown yourself in condemnation for needing to further learn, further heal, further grow. Give to yourself what you so willingly give to others", I sit with myself and speak.
Beloved, journeying through this physical existence is often challenging, as it mirrors both our light and shadow, both our essence of love and our egos appetite for self-serving things like revenge, greed, unforgiveness, hatred, bitterness, etc. It is indeed an experience that has proven to do one of two things:
1. Refine and purify those who yield themselves to the process of spiritual detoxification (i.e. daily renewal of the ego-driven thoughts, beliefs, and false, fear-based perceptions).
2. Consume the heart and mind to an impenetrable, ego-driven darkness.
If you have chosen the narrow path, I encourage you to extend love, grace and forgiveness to yourself when necessary. This is a Journey of awakening, of healing, of learning, of daily mind renewal, and it is a process of deep spiritual, mental and emotional detoxification.
It takes time to cultivate consistent maturity.
P.S. you're not alone.
Everything with everything, in freedom and choice.
The fear of rejection often fuels the coward's manifestations of deeply rooted insecure behavior. Assertiveness and authenticity are the characteristics of the secure.
For all the lovers out there.
