Circle

Image result for circle art

Drew my circle above and around me,

Testing all that tries to plant a seed,

maybe of doubt,

to just let go and allow,

In all truth I dont want any more,

everything that once was has dissolved on the shores,

melted into the sand, the waters have washed away and worn

I can now see the cycles of time and folklore,

We have waded through the nettles,

the process begins with the base metal

once the dust has finally settled,

out of time and out of place,

clocks ticking, no more attempts at trying to save face.

Going at pace,

exiting out of their rat race,

In this shadow world,

We observe,

Go back within to retrieve all that was lost,

reclaimed what is ours and pay the cost,

for apathy and denial, beyond each and every trial,

sugar coated and adorned,

still a new moment is born,

from ashes we rise forth,

we are the roses that bloomed yet are protected by thorns,

Just another allegory

I knew what I was going in to,

took on the adventure and jumped in the ocean blue,

vast, open, expansive, free… an endless sea of opportunity,

or just a stage, for a play of sorts…theatrical, a cage,

to an extent, set up,

perfectly for us to develop,

these skills through incidences in the guise of challenges,

imbalances

created through our mind when we are unaware of this mechanism,

but tapping in to our true essence beyond all reason is the wisdom,

that is not taught by these preachers, teachers,

attention-seekers.

Ask yourself why,

you chose this type of life,

often hidden from these eyes, there is a reason behind every decision you’ll soon find,

to live fully aware is to take a risk and without doubting the never-ending insight,

refuse to lie,

to yourself beyond approval and the need to be recognised

re-affirm the true source,

often obscured by limiting beliefs, ideas, patterning we look away…unsure,

don’t get this confused,

everyone has their own particular view, based on what they have been through

and so the stories came about, that we so often take for the truth,

which then leads to a life of not much use,

the new you,

is born,

beaten down and worn,

by opinionated mouths, with much influence in these circles of devil horns,

not a rose to be found amongst all these thorns

taken on the common consensus,

in a deep state of forgetfulness,

monotony, routine, the unseen,

it’s safer to live in denial,

because the loss of ego,

is a blow,

to our sense of self,

but once that falls then you can become relentless,

in your search to live out a life of true purpose.

…and even that is ever changing,

promises cannot be made with this way of relating,

to the world, so authentic,

cannot be handled by bulls stuck in the pasture, unenthusiastic

but in the long term it will all go south and so you chose this particular route, and made sure you were not bound,

by a story,

…just another an allegory,

To know what is next,

Lessons in being the best,

To be able to relate,

but at the same time triggered by the fate,

that created a pattern of pain,

kind of insane,

when you can train,

yourself to gain,

abundance, a better-feeling state

open-eyes,

wide in awe of the sights,

this plight, has let in even more daylight,

trust in something more tangible,

has shaped the physical, nothing short of a miracle how…

scars heal,

when we let ourselves feel,

valid and part of the deal

shadows, being real.

The price, not always nice…

but in the end it is wise to not compromise,

if it just does not feel right.

So no more conflicting thoughts on the matter,

making space for meaningless chatter,

Stop trying to prove,

and stand firmly in your own truth.

not an absolute,

sure has it’s roots.

All these games,

a lose-lose situation,

at the end of the day.

Put this all to rest…

a lightness, weight off my chest,

only time and perseverance will tell,

what is to come next.

Living again

images-48

Breathing again,

state of zen

knowing exactly when..

..to give a hand to lend,

love to send,

yet my consciousness will not bend…

…or descend.

In fact I will transcend,

only ever learning,

Pain is a disguise,

a mirror for what’s inside,

says the wise.

Offering a hint of advice.

A life lesson

..and not just a one hour session.

Fear not, you’re truly not in that deep…

Falling asleep.

Or weak.

I can seek that you are not meek.

Budding star,

You will go far.

So think,

these encounters forgotten in a blink.

Exaggerated…a magnifying glass,

Think I’ll take a pass.

Distortions of the mind’s eye

Sometimes…oftentimes it’ll lie.

Why?

A match to your past experiences.

Healing ever faster.

Dealing with it with joy and of course laughter

Sense of self,

Starts now,

Don’t ask how.

Truth is vibrating ever loud

Ring, calling, breaking the ground.

All around.

No longer bound.

Embrace the changes and be ready to astound.

Love,

Faatima

Go gently…go softly

images-9

Go gently, go softly the world is already too harsh of a place in this day and age of disconnection…well except for the internet we’re all connected to that hehe :p

When you are on a path of discovering your fullest potential it’s all too easy to focus on one aspect and forget it is the realisation of the whole of who you truly are and not just that one part of you.

A year ago I was self aware in terms of being soft and gentle but over time as I have gone through some transformational experiences that really shook me up and led me to where I am now, I am more self aware in terms of being a grounded and confident individual.

I feel I may have lost that old element of me.

…and it dosent feel good, that is how I know it’s a barrier in the way of recognising and embodying my authenticity to focus only on that one aspect.

Anything that feels less than good is a sign that you are not in alignment…it serves a purpose so don’t ignore it and follow the signals.

I have recently taken the time to retreat into myself and do what feels good, which is get back in touch with the side of me that has been withering away…the soft and gentle side.

I now know why I abandoned that aspect of me, a fear of being stepped on and disregarded which did happen but only because I had one without the other.

Seeing the people who were more ruthless in their tactics succeed created self-doubt but when I spoke to them there was always an emptiness, a void.

Manifesting your dream whilst abandoning your truth is never worth it.

It’s true that if you only embrace the gentle side of you then you will be in a more vulnerable position so instead it is all about finding that balance of staying grounded and confident whilst being soft and gentle enough to maintain your true, considerate and empathetic nature.

The problem for me is that I began replacing one for the other which didn’t feel good.

The first step to realisation and change-making is self awareness…being painfully self aware and in touch with your mind to the point where it is not self critical but instead acknowledgment and compassion.

That is the catalyst to great transformations.

So the question arises is authenticity and truth worth it at the expense of ruthlessly causing pain to others? The answer for me is no.

It doesn’t feel good firstly and secondly the world really needs more love and compassion it’s the least we can do to influence society…even on a small-scale in our communities, the numbers do add up.

Instead of passing a judgement that will hurt the other person and trying to justify ‘tough love’ which is not really love at all, offer out a hand in support, listen and if they ask then speak your truth with delicacy and consciously in regards to their perspective.

If nothing good comes of your interaction with a particular individual you find to be ‘too different’ to you…walk away…simple.

Follow what feels good and if being around them doesn’t feel good as it leads to conflict and a poisonous or toxic atmosphere, recognise that they are not in your calling and let all that potential hurt go by leaving.

We all have walked different paths and we all have different opinions on matters yet as humans we all understand how bad the lower vibrations and pain associated with that feels.

We should come together in that knowledge to help end suffering.

Even if you get a bad reaction at the end of the day as long as your intent was to stay soft and gentle, you know you tried your best and so you will not feel bad, I promise.

Love,

Faatima
