In These Shoes?

The Four Types of Fear

1. Fear of Losing

2. Fear of Facing

3. Fear of Abandonment

4. Fear of Death

All kinds of fear refer to something that has not happened yet. In other words, it refers to the future, a time that has not come yet.

Though it’s instinctive in all kinds, fear itself is what must be eliminated. It’s useless and spends our energy.

Fear steals our present moment. It’s not easy keeping it under control, it requires practice.

A good way is keeping mind under control and, everytime a fearful thought comes up, focusing on a good, confident thought, trusting that everything that happens is always for the best.

It finally happened!

Little dream becoming true:

Sharing

Thanks for sharing a little of your world with me…

Boundaries

I have a few friends who know me pretty well and with whom I can share very personal stuff.

Though, there are a few matters that reached their highest point of sharing. It means it’s no helpful at all getting someone else’s opinion anymore or even some relief in sharing them.

No one can live my life for me or be responsible for my actions. 
Even though these things still matter and affect me a lot, I decided not to share anything new that happens related to them anymore.

It’s funny that I woke up with this decision in mind and something happened twice today: the mute phone calls. It’s happened very often in the last months. I know, it could be anybody, a child playing tricks on me, many different people playing tricks on me, I don’t know since I still don’t have a number identifier 😦 . I can get a number identifier very easily but the question is : why does it keep me wondering? Who I’d like to be the one calling? Why do I think it could be this person and why would it please me? I know, and that’s all I can get to know.

I’ve gotta find the answers myself. If something happens and affects me, what I have to ask is not why someone did this or that, but why and how it affects me if it does. I don’t have to look for meanings hidden in an action but why do I think there are hidden meanings behind some action and why do I wanna know. “What can I do about it?” instead of “why did it happen?”.

There are things I’d like to know and I cannot ask. There are things I’d like them to happen in a certain way and I can’t do anything right now. At least I wanna know my own answers.

Someone else might ask…

Mystical Thoughts

I am a very spiritual person, very connected to my spiritual side.

Like everybody else, most of my daily activities are related to the material side, where objective and logical thinking predominates.

It’s mostly in the very early morning and late at night before sleeping that  my spiritual side predominates. Those are introspective moments, of deep reflection and meditation.

Those moments are very important for me and I believe they allow the communication through the interior connection we all have with God or the Superior Conscience, no matter how one who believes prefers calling this.

The thoughts I have [ I believe many others feel the same way] in my introspective spiritual moments are very different from the ones I have when I’m dealing with practical matters. They are from a different nature, very intense and they do not necessarily have words…they can be just felt, like in dreams, when we simply know things, even when they are not said.

Though I can’t explain why and how the nature of objective thinking and spiritual thinking [that’s how I call  them] is different , there were a few times in my life when, despite of being involved in practical activities and thinking, a spiritual thought came up and caught my attention to someone or something…that later would be proven to have an important role in my life, not necessarily good, but definitely special.

It’s natural after it happens, that I bring it to my objective thinking and start to relate to it in a practical way.

The last time it happened to me I guess my insights about it were wrong…until now…and it’s been a long time already.

My actions and objective communication never worked fine in this case, unfortunately, despite of the insight being very strong. Any insight is a waste of time when the one who has it doesn’t know how to bring it to practice.

Anyway, at least it showed me things I need to improve. It wasn’t useless, just didn’t happen as expected…until now…
