Being Whole

IMG_20170603_165805_710
Everything worthwhile is not in the future but now!
Most of us outsource our happiness from people and circumstances. Hence, happiness becomes very elusive.
Happiness and unhappiness are states of the mind. We look up to salvation or moments in the future to be happy. When I obtain this or that, I will be happy. When someone does this or that, I will be happy. Hence, happiness becomes very short-lived.
It also means that we are in a state of lack.
Freedom and salvation in this case can only come through focusing on what can be done now. We focus our energy on the past and the future too much that we forget to enjoy the present moments. People say they need time to achieve this or that, acquire something or someone, love etc before they can be happy or whole/ complete.
But we get there by realizing that we are there already, by living in complete acceptance of what is. If you want to look good, start now, if you are not happy with your body, start exercising now, if you want love in your life, start loving now, don’t wait till someone comes in order for you to love.
It also means accepting circumstances as they are, if there is a solution you can find now to the problem you have, well and good and you if can’t find a solution now, just let life be.
We also need to learn that when negative things happen, there is a deep lesson concealed under it. There is always a higher good in every situation. It doesn’t mean we continue staying in bad relationships or in uncomfortable situations, to the contrary when you are whole, complete and utterly present that’s when you learn to walk away from situations that don’t speak to who you are. And peace and happiness come from a deeper place in you, hence you don’t feel the need to fight also or insult and be clingy when things don’t go well. You just walk away, happy and complete.
Most of us derive our sense of identity from situations, people, fame, titles, and appearances. Not to say they are bad but circumstances change, people fall out of love, you may end up losing your beauty, fame, titles, money, but then what happens?
It also doesn’t mean you shouldn’t appreciate what you have or the amazing people in your life, it only means that you don’t derive your sense of who you are or happiness in people or situations because they are temporary.
Echart Tolle in his book, The Power Of Now says, ‘All that arises passes away’
I believe him.

Its all lies, Darling…

This deeply resonates with me right now!

This African Girl

I was scared today and not just because i realised how much and what i can do but what i have lost. Friends, family, opportunities and more. And i would lie if i said i dont feel alone most times.
I do.
Perhaps even to share the best,i do.
Alone though.
And even the few you have, they are just too far to understand.

Sometimes i sit down and i see so much, i hear so much and i want to cry because what is being said is true.
Somehow.

But something deep inside keeps whispering that i can do it. I can figure it out. Its easier to judge. I know. Maybe their lives suck and they want to drag mine with them.
Maybe.
And sometimes you want to fight or shout out that, am not that or this or its them not me.
Blame.
And maybe sometimes, they…

Live and Love

IMG_20170616_161142_525

 

For the past years in my life, I have been told what to do, whom to speak to, how I should sit properly, dress decently, walk like this and like that, not to say too much, and so many other things
But the thing I always wanted to hear is to live. To breathe.
I am vulnerable to death just as everyone else is. What we don’t hear is love with all your heart regardless of age, color, gender etc or enjoy every single moment including this moment, now as you read this.
We are taught to walk over people, disrespect the most vulnerable and live like we own our breath and sometimes it’s weird when we get shocked that some people die and others well, we are not shocked. Is death not for all people?
And why are we here, if not to live, love and enjoy every single moment of the life given to us. It starts with loving oneself enough to love others, including our families, friends, neighbours, country women and men. How will we not achieve peace in the world if we love everyone this way, like the next breath depends on them.
I choose to live and love like I will die in the next one minute.

Matatu

Screenshot_2017-06-13-20-37-33-1More like matata most days
I sat on the right corner back seat
Squueezed
In a car full of passengers
Lost in the activity and chit chat
Of their minds
Perhaps getting lost
Was easier than
Just being
But I ask what is peace?

 

Matatu– public means of transport in Kenya (also a culture)

Matata– trouble

TATATA

 

flowers-1240166_960_720
Sometimes I cried in my sleep
Sometimes I cried loudly and everyone could hear
But they were too far to help
To understand
Perhaps it all came down to me
My mind
The root to all my Unhappiness
I desperately wanted to blossom like this flower am holding
Part of me so dying
I could say I felt so good
I could say death was my awakening
To realize that my mind is a fiction of what could be, what was and what might not be

 

Glimpses of light
I heard welcome home and I rushed
The beauty of light
Divine
The embrace was magical
Like a new born baby or a lover with his soul
Divine
I can only hear one sound now
Tatata (The suchness of life)
Beauty
