Life as a human being is an insatiable experience despite it being an emotional wild ride. To say the least, it is profound, mysterious, exhilarating and maddening all at once! Being alive is addicting, we want more despite the ups and downs.

Our lives are run by ideas that we hold allegiance to, ideas that institute restrictions in the human experience. We are run by dos, don’ts and suggestions of impossibilities. What is seldom realized is that we live a life of suggestions.
From time to time you may have experienced a sudden shock or feeling as if segments of time are missing or awakening to a sudden realization of the disappearance of past memories. This experience can be quite jarring at first. What we do not realize is that we have traveled to a reality that may have some extreme differences to the reality we may have left behind.
Each day I am reminded of the closely guarded rules and conditions that we have established in our lives. We are on guard watching for any thought or idea that may come along and possibly alter that paradigm. Most often we go running to the safety of our own mental prison.
We each live a life of immense distractions. This is however an incredibly necessary component in the human game. Distractions create somewhat of an amusement park fun house effect much like the house of mirrors.
Ok so I have written about this a number of times but for goodness sakes when I run into this stuff it is so funny…yes it is funny. No I am not laughing at anyone but I am laughing at how creative we are in making this game really exciting! There are a group of new agers that are relentless at overdosing the masses with this construct of a future of bliss, where we hang out with the ascended masters and sing kumbaya all day, while we hug mother earth and just feel nothing but joy and love…oh my god just stop it already!!
Being spiritual is in some respects an overrated concept steeped in all sorts of conjured up rules and expectations. Instead it becomes a state of being that we try to achieve yet every act is in honor of the spiritual experience. It is how we experience being human.
Is there ever a moment when there is truly nothing left to give. Everyone has experienced that moment of spiritual exhaustion. It’s that feeling of having tried and tried yet things seem to take three steps forward and two steps back. The idea of being positive becomes more of an annoyance especially when others attempt to be encouraging. It’s the journey through the valley and into the dark night. What is perhaps perplexing is the certainty held in believing that one has exceeded a reoccurrence of that experience. One is left speechless, exhausted, a little ticked off and thinking what that *%#@ !.
