Stream of Consciousness Saturday

#SoCS – Reality SoCS -Real/Reality Life has been moving so fast, I haven’t found time to remember it’s Saturday. I’m not convinced anything on earth is real.  Sometimes I think we will wake up and realize we’ve only been dreaming.    I once believed in my thoughts -what appeared within, will appear before me.  I was so convinced -it often distorted my views.  Yet, for me, it was very real.  Crazy, huh? Isn’t that life?  We believe what we wish to believe and everyone else is the stupid one.  Politics -If this is your passion, you will be convinced your choice is the correct one.

Perhaps I am just meant to live in a world of my own creation. Now that’s not to say that I don’t recognize reality when it smacks me in the face. I’ve survived real situations throughout my life, some that have left deep scars upon my soul. I know what’s going on in the real world as I actively read and watch the news. And I am not schizophrenic, or at least not visually – I do hear voices. What I mean by my confession is that when I get in that space, that creative place, I am there, in that created world. I am transformed through…

Why your brain is screaming for peace

This opens my eyes… You see, this use to be me, but more importantly I have always felt a rejection from those around me. When I am in their presence I feed my brain negativity concerning their feelings toward me. Once, I would plan my attack of revenge just because they didn’t like me. Now, reading this -I understand. Maybe, they feel the same way. How can I not have compassion for someone who suffers as I have suffered. Let’s all turn and look at the person we once sought revenge upon -and see the pain in their eyes.
