I've made a lot of mistakes in the past and when I look back, I realize how much I have changed and grown today. My journey to Spiritual Activism is slowly coming together one piece at a time. I moved to the West to activate this part of my journey. I came here for a purpose: to balance my life, to recreate a sustainable lifestyle for health and wellness and to be able to take care of the noise outside and inside my head. And what I have realized over and over and over again is that it takes time, patience, and trust when taking care of ourselves. Especially when diving deeper to the many mistakes and victories we have seen, still seeing and witnessed, still witnessing in our lives. And when we are ready and when you are ready and when the universe knows you are ready - to step on to the next phase of your journey, it's there waiting...always there. So get ready. Prepare yourself. Heal. Listen. Be Patient. Practice your Love of/for...everyday. Seek inside the Soul of your Eyes and watch it move in front of the mirror. See yourself and Smile at her. It is okay to create other things, to learn new experiences and take part in the many adventures ahead. To acknowledge the mistakes and victories while still Taking Your Time to See You. There are many peeling off of the many pasts we've encountered and recreated over and over again in our lives - so many passed down stories from generation to generation to generation that we walked all our lives that are currently not serving us anymore. Bringing Sacredness and Spiritual Activism in our Lives is one of the many steps we need to embrace today. Mistakes are Gifts - to learn, to change and to transform. Mistakes are for Pausing and Reminding us to sit for awhile and be Gentle for awhile. Victories are Gifts - to learn, to change and to transform. Victories are for Pausing and Reminding us to sit for awhile and be Gentle for awhile. They are the same lessons but we weigh them so differently in our society. It is Time that together we Relearn, Rediscover and Reclaim these words with an open mind and heart, so that we can truly See One Another and Be Seen from the Warmth from our Eyes.
