When we live in our heads, we lose track of what we really want in our lives. We start believing that what we want is what we think we want but unfortunately, our heads are usually quite conditioned to want what society wants. Think about the American dream... the big house, the big car, the big job... is that really a dream? At the end of the days, will having a big house have any meaning? Will having a big car signify we have accomplished something or left our mark in the world? Sometimes, society derails us from our purposes, it tricks us with shinny things to make us think we are happy, that we are somebody but it is not about the things you have or do, it is about knowing what your higher self within you wants, what your heart wants, what you were meant to bring to this world.
Society today provides several ways to distract us. We live a life being numb by different things. Some people use food to numb feelings, some people use things to numb the pain they feel within, some people use television to drug themselves into not thinking, some people overwork, some people do too much keeping themselves so busy they don't even have a minute to breath... what are we afraid of? What is so scary we need to find ways to cope? Are we afraid of being who we are meant to be? Are we afraid to be original or different from the rest? Like Lady Olivia said "Be original: because that what is original in you expresses Deity." It is not about being all the same, wanting the same things that they try to sell us we want. It is about being unique and working together for a better world. If we let our fears go and express our uniqueness, I am sure the world would be so different filled with people who are not afraid to push the boundaries, to live from the heart, to go for what they really want and not for what society says they want.
The industrial revolution and some world religions have made it easy for people to believe we are machines and we have no feelings or feelings are negative; that our bodies are just a medium to move us around but nothing else. We should live our lives without feeling in order to be happy or if we feel, we should cope by getting busier or buying something. We are becoming detached of our bodies and those bodies are our connection to the Mother. No wonder why our Earth is so neglected! We neglect our bodies and those are a reflection of the bigger picture. If we can not take care of our bodies as our temples, how would we care about the Earth as our home? If we start peeling the layers that patriarchy has put on us we will find the core. Let go of the programming, let go of the conditioning, let go of the fear of being different, let go of the busyness, let go of the rules and mandates, let go of all those things that prevent you from being who you are meant to be. Those things that block your uniqueness, those things that prevent you from connecting with the Mother and see that you are just a reflection of Her, you are the microcosm into the macrocosm. As above, so below, as within so without. It all starts with one person. It is time to live from our hearts not our heads and this may be an endless battle.
