“It felt like this was never going to end. The world wasn’t going to stop crashing down until there wa nothing left of me but ashes.”
An evening to rethink about what is real and what is not. Sometimes its gloomy and melancholic for months. Sometimes it takes a week of escape to know that things can be better. You may give up. You might have decided to take your own life yesterday. Maybe there would have been someone or the people you never knew weeping in the corner for you. Or maybe no one ever will. Maybe there is some specific dates that is always in the back of your head. Your mind just keeps screaming, 'This is it, i have to go today'. Your eyes all teary, you wanted to scream aloud but all you can think of is how worthless you are and you don't matter. You are in pain. Your heart and soul is in pain. And suddenly it all just goes black.
The next moment you find yourself, in an eternal void of silence and darkness.
Cliamte action is essential for the survival of the human species. We are heading to destroy the world that is only lent to our existence. Our current situation is changeable but the impact we made, the lives we endangered, the existence we cut short are unrepairable. We can repair the errors we did yesterday we can build a brighter and better future, but only if we all unite under the human banner. Government and politics, economy and capitalism are not helping our situation. We dream of a future of innovation, of utopic proportions, but this can become reality if we all work to protect our future. We are your children, we are the adults of tomorrow, we must work together. The @ipcc 's report released just a few weeks ago is the final alert to initiate change before it is too late... Until our existence itself is threatened by our stupidity. Think of the future, think of how you imagine out, and look at the reality we are hidden from.
Note to self:
My phobic angst regarding death
is an ego-filled fantasy...
A rude awakening reminding me
that I'm not special
and like the rest of humanity
I dissolve into the unknown...
You only have two jobs on this earth: The first is to learn and the second is to cope
I think we are all in some sort of an existential crisis and I think the first course of action is to not panic.. Everyone rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves (Alan Watts) “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The real crisis is not your existence, it’s what you have yet to realise about it
I want to start a movement for anyone that feels lost, scared or unprepared. We are all moving at the same speed of light. Don’t panic
Ok so Lola’s got a confession to make. She’s not really so into politics, too much barking & growling. So after much deliberation she’s decided to leave the negotiations to the German Shepherds. She’s got full confidence that they can also advocate for the Dutch French Bulldog community.
Who knows what’s in store for Lola now... first things first... explore Brussels.
I woke up this morning and a thought crossed my mind that I wanted to share with you.⠀
“The Universe is always teaching me patience.” ⠀
If you know me at all, you’ll know that I am not the world’s most patient person. In fact, deep down I am a control freak. I can’t wait. I have to know. My mind buzzes and it’s hard to let go.⠀
One of my ongoing lessons from my beloved Universe is exactly what I need to be able to trust and this is patience. Patience is one of the hardest things to master and I personally find that I flow in and out of it. If it wasn’t for meditation, I don’t know how I would cope!⠀
It is easy when things are going well and going your way to know that you are in the flow. When the shit storm kicks off though or when there is uncertainty, that’s when you find it difficult to stay in that same vibe. ⠀
The thing that helps me the most and I work hardest to cultivate within myself is the idea that everything is happening FOR me not to me. It’s trying to understand that everything is leading somewhere and this is not the end point. ⠀
It’s also understanding that just because nothing is happening, doesn’t mean that the Universe is not at work behind the scenes. We often think that by letting go or practicing patience it’ll take longer. Often it is exactly what is needed to be able to see the result we’re seeking.⠀
Patience really is a virtue and I’m hoping one day it will be one of mine. In the meantime, all I can do is self-heal. ⠀
Of course beneath that snow bridge is a dramatic drop. And of course she went in and through that water. What else could have happened? I'm reading The Things They Carried, chewing up the silence at 2am.
