Awakening Angels

one woman's journey to self love and living an awakened life.

One foot in, One foot out

awaken, wake up, a course in miracles, how to, be happy, find my passion, job, loveI feel like most of the time we live this life very confused. We confuse ourselves over what’s important and what we care about, we confuse ourselves about who we want to be and what we think about ourselves and others, we confuse ourselves about what’s really going on here, and we confuse ourselves into thinking we are finite.

Death, sickness or a sudden change in circumstances can sometimes shift us out of our state of confusion and catapult us into reality – real reality. I’m sure you have experienced a moment or moments in your life where something big has happened and you have been left with such clarity you feel as though up until that moment you must have been living with your head stuck in the bath. But then it fades.

We go back to work, or we find ourselves getting annoyed at the person standing in front of us in a line, and all those superficialities come rolling back in and we slip right back into the blur of our confused existence.

Recently I read a powerful line in A Course In Miracles:

“If you only accept what is timeless as real, you will begin to understand eternity and make it yours.”

I don’t know about you, but I feel awesome when I read that sentence. I don’t fully understand it but I know enough to know that comprehending it isn’t the point.

As the end of the year draws near and a new year is just in sight it’s got me thinking; what do I really care about?

Once I have answered this question, I will then investigate how I can craft my life for 2015 around my answers. At any moment each one of us can choose  to live a life fuelled by what we really care about, and we don’t actually need anything bad to occur to take us to this same conclusion. We can decide right now to let go of the shit that we pretend matters, and start to live.

Let’s live to live.

    Lovely! 🙂 You know when I was about 4 years old I started thinking about death, my parents and family were really scared, but I was not sad or frightened, I just felt that it gave me perspective. I used to say to people when they got angry about silly things: What does it matter? You are going to die one day, do you know that? I know it sounds quite depressing, but for me, it made everything so much more real, I felt that my life was a journey that went on beyond me, beyond my identity. Of course I did not think in these big words as a little girl, but I had the awareness of life beyond death, and life before I came to be me. I have always lived with that depth. It has actually been difficult for me to understand and relate to people who do not have this perspective. People who limit their thinking and values to this life span: the years between their birth and death. I don’t know why I was born with this awareness, it has some times made me lonely. But for me it is only that which is eternal that is real. Much of my journey has been about learning to live in this world, to not be beaten down by it, so my words for 2015 are: determination, confidence and empowerment 🙂

      Wow how fascinating! I was actually the opposite, and through my teenage years struggled with finding meaning and purpose with anything because I thought we were just living these days and then dying and that was it.

      A long time ago I read about a concept of reminding ourselves of our morbidity for that reason – to live more fully and not worry about what doesn’t really matter. I have found it really helpful to wear a bracelet or something which I affectionately term ‘my morbidity bracelet’ hahaha But I’m sure that would have been hard for you because people often assume you are being ‘morbid’ or depressing, but it’s really the opposite! I love your little child self – what a wonder! It can be lonely sometimes when we are here to change things and offer different perspectives. You’re doing so well expressing your perspectives and it helps people so much.

      Thank you for being on here and reading my post, and sharing your story 🙂 With love, Sharon
      OH and have a spectacular New Years 🙂

    Well shared, Sharon. I would respectfully add that it is often the ego-mind that interferes and enjoys stirring confusion. When we set it aside and focus on our limitless potential and what we want, coupled with intentional clarity and action, we can explore and discover in and with our inspired selves. 🙂

      Yeah it is, isn’t it. Whenever we don’t feel good, clear and connected I feel it is cause we are more associated with our ego mind, or fear mind than our true nature. For me, the confusion is just another reminder to connect back into the love within 🙂

      Thanks for reading my post Eric, and for your support 🙂 Have a wonderful new years!! With love, Sharon

    It can be so confusing for sure.. and we aren’t really taught to follow the clarity within. I am trying to do that now.. and it kind of takes a lot of focus and trust. ❤

      Yes it does! Trust and faith seem to require constant choice for me. Even in each day I remind myself to breathe and know that everything is okay and that I am looked after. I feel myself move into deeper levels of trust and faith but know that I still have a way to go. Imagine if we trusted fully and completely?! I wonder how life would be then?

      Have a wonderful day Laurie and thanks again for supporting my blog 🙂 With love and hugs, Sharon
