August 12, 2011

As I wrote this post to be posted yesterday, I was feeling happy and upbeat. Today I feel drained for I think I may have forgotten what I myself wrote in that blog – practice. It is hard to practice when people offend us, or rather, when we let them offend us, when we take it personally, when we forget that whatever  they do or say to us, is not about us, but about them (Don Miguel Ruiz – the 4 agreements). And today, my Higher Self, kindlyrescues me and picks me up and hold me gently in her hands and sends me this beautiful, amazing and inspiring post in the blog lifebyme.com

This post makes me feel good because I, like the author, like deep conversations. Hate small talk, that is why I feel shy in parties, because you kind of “have to” (?) do small talk. I like big talks. Like she said:

“What scares me is coming to the end of my day – or my life – without having done all I could to go as deep as I could. I’m not sure there’s anything that excites me more than exploring the depths.
In any conversation, I ask myself: How close to what really and truly matters can this conversation go? How transformational can it be? For me? For them? I’ve found common threads that run through every conversation: We all want to love and be loved. We want to be seen. We want to feel like we make a difference. And we all have fears and dreams. I want to know what those are”

I couldn’t agree more with “We all want to love and be loved”. So many people run around searching for so many things, when all they need is love, a little love, or big love, but love after all. Just plain love.

And the final quote she writes there by Rumi, makes me feel in unison with the universe and reminds me of this space inside of all of us:

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.”

So today, as I become conscious to practice love and self-love, I am reminded of just being in silence and think on these words and these thoughts. We can all meet each other (t)here. We can all meet our multitudes (t)here. That is what I wish for you today. That is what my Higher Self is reminding me of today: Love, go deep, let´s meet each other (t)here – no wrongdoing, no right doing. Just (t)here.

PS: to my readers out there:  sorry it´s been such a long time without writing. I have surfed high waves and have survived. I am back! Will try to post at least once a week. My Higher Self continues to speak to me and I will continue spreading the word :-)

  1. Ana, thanks for your post. It made me reflect on my life and what I want for me. I want to explore the depths, as scary as it can be, meaning we are sometimes scared of being honest, personal, and human. Everything seems so superficial sometimes.
    As for the beginning of your post, please, remember the "garbage truck" story and that poem by Rumi which goes like "This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival," including unexpected visitors. But "Be grateful for whatever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond."

  2. Rafa, thanks for your comment. Yes, exploring the depths can be really scary... but also beautiful!!
    I read the other day that we live in horizontal times, but very few verticality. We need depth.
    Thanks for reminding me of the "garbage truck" story and the poem by Rumi :-)
