Parts Becoming Simple Pieces…

I had a conversation with my cousin yesterday… He’s about 7 years younger and just now starting to feel and realize that there’s a big world out there…In the midst of trying to help him manage his world… I said something that has actually given me perspective for my own life…

Which was… “As long as you’re happy, it shouldn’t matter what other people think. You have to live with yourself and love yourself. You’ll always be in your own life. Always. That’s something you cannot escape”…

And it’s true… As long as we live and breathe on this earth.. We will always simply be with ourselves…

I see my mom going through that now… She’s always had herself, but with the death of my dad… Well she’s starting to actually realize what it means to be with yourself… That we cannot escape us…

And I think being with ourselves… For all of life… Well I think it means a lot… Because we can ignore ourselves and never cultivate an authentic relationship…

And we also have the choice to believe what we choose to believe…

I’ve gone through times of growth that have caused me to question my beliefs… Times that have helped me grow… Times that have caused a shift…

But this moment in life… This moment that seems familiar, yet I can feel that it is foreign… Well it’s causing me to question my beliefs again…

Because somewhere a long the way I think I forgot that my belief system… Well it belongs to be… Like a bank account… It’s in my name… I sign on the dotted line…

And I’ve chosen to allow myself to only really accept truth from places I want to accept it from…

And within it has come this idolized belief system…

There’s seems to not be as much open mindedness anymore…

Just choosing to go with what I know will not fail me at the end of the day…

And maybe the reality is this has always been a part of who I am… I’ve just ignored it until now…

That I haven’t been awakened to this truth until now…

And though it feels foreign… As long as I just live life… Well I’ll always have just me… So it’s good to have this idolized part… But to allow the part to become a simple piece… Without all of the worship I’ve given it…
