Ok lets slow this down a bit shall we, it’s not like its light speed or even close. Only slowing down to reminisce the innocence of the childlike question, summons briefly that breath of fresh air swept away by the winds of time. Recalling these moments are far from the whimsical recollections camouflaged as day dreaming, being they still reside in your heartfield. At any given moment in your life, it can be reached upon to help remind you that transformation of self, is more than a figure of imagination in this reality. Finding a way to reach back is the way to this enlighten path, but first one must forget, before resurrecting the freedom once blissfully enjoyed as a child. Do you remember the nostalgic thoughts and nervous yet inquisitive feelings, rumbling in your belly while sitting next to your schoolmate love? Can you recall the chill of goosebumps arising, as you anxiously awaited an answer from that crush, just two desks down? How jittery your fingers were when you forced the words onto paper, before passing it along with hopes of getting a glimpse of a received smile? Whatever happen to those days of innocent thought with just a hint of mischief? Remember flying a kite or holding hands while taking a long walk? What about going to the park where there’s already a BBQ grill built in? Remember when a few dollars made you feel wealthy beyond your wildest dreams, because it was all yours to spend at the candy store? Have we lost the simpler way of life by way of age, time or regret? Red light-Green light anyone? How about freeze tag or possibly playing jacks?
No different from your tree climbing, skate boarding and pavement scraped scar barely visible on your knee, these light hearted fun filled days are still apart of who you are, still deeply embedded within your mental store house. Only after years of the cultural melting pot, SAT scores, bills and overstimulation of news report and reality shows, just to name a few. The mind has been overwhelmed with unnecessary stress filled issues, financial instabilities, relationship insecurities and self-prescribed guilt stimulated barriers. Also not to forget, the ever growing battle within our own exhausted state of consciousness, trying to live up to standards created by entities of purposed deception. The gravity of such problematic concerns inadvertently over time, tends to weigh down and suppress those bliss filled, carefree days. This is what I referred to as, “One must first forget.” Remember feeling protected and accepted? No worries whatsoever, because you knew someone was there when you needed to be picked up, held or rocked to sleep? Just how do we rekindle those nostalgic days of joy?
The answer is much easier than most are ready to accept, even though we’ve been hearing it sporadically through our lives! Remember you have the power to change your reality by changing the way you perceive your environment to be, as mentioned this breath of life still resides in you; lets take a peak. Recall from the child in your mind, as you stuck your hand out the car window, while your parents took the scenic route to take in the sunset. As the chill of the wind flowed though your fingers, up and down as you glided through the air, what was on your mind? Nothing, at least nothing when it came to the previous stressors mentioned. It was simply nothing at all, you were free to imagine and unknowingly take for granted that all was right in the world, why? Because you felt safe. You were protected to feel free and now, somehow we’ve all grown up feeling the weight of the world subsequently surpassing that feeling of peace. So how do we “not think?” How do we become thoughtless of unnecessary responsibilities, fears and false representation of low self worth? We first must accept the things we cannot change, but develop faith that all can be done by the grace of God. If this isn’t your first initial route, try becoming “the protecter”yourself, for the rekindling of your spouses joy, family or friends. In this you’ll see truth revealed, as to remind you of your own blessed innocence as well.
This means the total sacrifice of yourself! Furthermore again, you’d draw out that beautiful childlike peace within your significant other mentioned prior! Upon diligent consistency you’ll eventually see the confirmation of miracles and find that its reciprocal unto you. Lastly, vigorously do battle within your mind, laying waste to all your lust, vices and manifested guilt trips created over time, but know this isn’t truly possible unless you submit to a power much higher than human potential. The point is to reconnect to that childlike freedom, never questioning yourself based off the wicked idolized perceptions scattered within the world. Know this, upon christ’s sacrifice you are free, but upon the wiles of your own guilt, you are damned. This is why transformation into mindfulness is key to your happiness as well as others around you. Once this is found, you’ll see just how beautiful this world is, as well as the beauty within your purpose. In my personal journey to enlightenment, I accomplished all three routes. First, I submitted to God’s provisions and mercy. With this humbleness now obtained, I then sacrificed my total self, mind, body and soul for the unconditional love of my future wife. In this, I fulfilled the covenant of marriage by the bonding of two held together within the law of our created purposes. By the both of us becoming one in christ, I then possessed the strength to lay waste to the embedded fears, insecurities and manifested barriers hindering my mind from the awakening of true consciousness. So instead of simply rekindling the past, trying to hold on to that glimpse of innocence, I can freely enjoy the present in all its abundance, joy and happiness while walking into the future, enlightened with total peace. Gone are the days of the nervous, goose-bumped filled questionings, “Do you like me yes or no?” (which turns out to be a standard, suggested by the wiles of manifested insecurities set early in our childhood!)Now stands a man in complete confidence as mindfulness is reached, within the now and forevermore. Moreover, in my awakening of consciousness, I question with empathy not my or others approval for acceptance, but rather question them instead with the following,”Do you like yourself, YES or NO?
