The Effects of Cancel Culture



When you are confident secure and sovereign in your truth, your knowingness,  you will not be threatened or insecure by anyone else’s truth.

Turning your back on someone, canceling someone, bullying, name calling, belittling are all behaviors stemming from trauma, programming and deep insecurity.

It’s a response from someone that is threatened by another’s truth.

When you are solid, sovereign, aligned and at peace with your truth, I promise you, the above behaviors will never resonate with you. You just won’t do them.

Confidence in who you are and what you believe breeds compassion and empathy for any other truth outside of yours.

You don’t have to accept it, obviously, but you can be the sovereign human you incarnated as and allow free will and diversity to exist amongst you.

Pay attention to divisive behavior disguised as honor. Anything that pulls humanity apart creating segregation is part of the problem not the solution.

We are here to rise above division. Cancel culture is division in the most deceptive way.

We aren’t here to cancel anyone. We are here to allow our hearts to remind us that this game we are playing is designed to be beat. We will see through the illusion of separation and eventually remember we have always been unified.

Do not forget, this is the evolution in our human consciousness. This is not physical but energetic. Playing in the illusion of separation and divide is only perpetuating the collective shadow.

Stay in your heart.


CANCEL CULTURE

Is Insecurity, Trauma, And Programming

Disguised As Confidence And Righteousness.

The Wildfire of Divorce

 



I don't feel guilty about building a life for myself after divorce.
I feel guilty about not doing it sooner.
My accomplishments have been painstakingly executed in such a way that I don't wish my road on even my worst enemy.
I fought for happiness.
I fought for peace and sacrificed everything to get where I'm at today.
Life has been like a wildfire for me..
burning away everything that no longer serves me..
leaving only ashes to remind me how things are constantly being transformed.
We don't always know why we have to struggle so much and endure unfathomable amounts of pain.
But I assure you there is meaning in the scars you now wear and beauty in the fire that you survived.
You are capable of so much more than you realize.
Just keep moving forward and believing in yourself,
and watch the fire that destroys you, transform you into a better version of yourself.

Silence

Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside. Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside. If you’re truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in you can enjoy the silence. There are moments when you think you’re silent and all around is silent, but talking is going on all the time inside your head. That’s not silence. The practice is how to find silence in all the activities you do.

Let us change our way of thinking and our way of looking. We have to realize that silence comes from our heart and not from the absence of talk. Sitting down to eat your lunch may be an opportunity for you to enjoy silence; though others may be speaking, it’s possible for you to be very silent inside. The Buddha was surrounded by thousands of monks. Although he walked, sat, and ate among the monks and the nuns, he always dwelled in his silence. The Buddha made it very clear that to be alone, to be quiet, does not mean you have to go into the forest. You can live in the sangha, you can be in the marketplace, yet you still enjoy the silence and the solitude. Being alone does not mean there is no one around you.
Being alone means you are established firmly in the here and the now and you become aware of what is happening in the present moment. You use your mindfulness to become aware of every feeling, every perception you have. You’re aware of what’s happening around you in the sangha, but you’re always with yourself, you don’t lose yourself. That’s the Buddha’s definition of the ideal practice of solitude: not to be caught in the past or carried away by the future, but always to be here, body and mind united, aware of what is happening in the present moment. That is real solitude.~

Women Pretending to Being Queens


 

He's had a lot of misfortune
In his life
Taken advantage of
By women
That promised their loyalty
Women that did not appreciate his heart
And the twelve-hour days he put in
So they could sit at home
Like a damn queen
All the while spending money
Like water
Racking up credit card debt
With no regard for the future devastation
They were unleashing
He's been underappreciated
But has learned
From his past mistakes
Now he's more cautious
More aware
Of women that have hidden motives
Now he doesn't go into a relationship
Blindly
His eyes are wide open
To women pretending
To being queens

The Wrong Person

 


Being with the wrong person
In life
Can be detrimental
To your health
It could have lasting psychological effects
On you
Depending on if there's abuse, neglect, or even a lack of validation for your feelings
Maybe you've become invisible
To the person
And you have to beg for attention
Maybe you feel you can't be your authentic self
Because they already control and manipulate you
Out of their own fears and insecurities
You have a choice
To stay or go
Just know if you stay
You're saying yes
To allowing the abuse to continue
And no to the potential future
Of authentic living
Where your peace and contentment await

Grief

 


I had my own notion of grief.
I thought it was the sad time
That followed the death of someone you love.
And you had to push through it
To get to the other side.
But I'm learning there is no other side.
There is no pushing through.
But rather,
There is absorption.
Adjustment.
Acceptance.
And grief is not something you complete,
But rather, you endure.
Grief is not a task to finish
And move on,
But an element of yourself-
An alteration of your being.
A new way of seeing.
A new definition of self.

With or Without You

 


i broke my own heart
by loving you
i thought our love was indestructible
that you'd be there for me
when i needed you
but you weren't
and i had to rethink
my position on you
and reevaluate the value i put on you
it seems like maybe i demand to much
from the people in my life
that at the root of it all
my values and principles are high
i don't intend to lower them
just to keep someone in my life
i don't intend to beg either
go if you want to go
stay if you want to stay
i'm fine with whatever you decide
but will you be fine without me?
