“My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendacity in the face of what is necessary—but love it.”
– Friedrich Nietzche
It is no longer what it is.
It is what I is.
That is, it is what you is. You are paradise.
If all is light, then all is a light show.
Behold the showcase of photons!
I just finished season 1 of “The Bear.” It’s great. The older brother gives the younger brother some cool advice. “Let it rip,” he says in a posthumous note.
I always liked this saying so I Googled it. Apparently in the 1800s when racing a steamboat, the engine would explode or “rip” from all the pressure. What’s cool about the saying is that while there is inherent danger built in, the ripping, there is also a fearlessness, the letting.
So it seems the opposite of fear is not exactly no fear. The opposite of fear is acting regardless of it’s presence. This must be the flow state.
To fulfill it is to empty it. Empty all of it. Like exhaust every nugget of your entire being every day, then auto-refills of the nectar every night.
The nectar is the fulfillment. And the fulfillment is the nuggets.
Honor your words, honor your path.
Words seed your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Honor your words, honor your entire reality.
Style matters. Appreciationess. Appreciationistic.
Appreciationable. Appreciationment. Appreciationify.
Appreciationism. Appreciationship. Appreciationesque.
Appreciationous. Appreciationical. Appreciationize.
Appreciationance. Appreciationage. Appreciationing.
All is well, be well. All is easy, be easy. It is looking like we can no longer worry about other people, places, or things. Our worrying about problems only delivers more problems.
All we can do is adjust our vibration in order to deliver more vibration at all times to all people, all places, and all things. Be the light, be the well, be the easy to whoever, wherever, and whenever it is needed.
In rest, summons it.
In relaxation, allow it.
In reset, arrival.
Yesterday’s post reminded me of another conversation with another friend. I said that so far this year I have been purposefully selfish with my time, lots of stuff I wanna work on and finish. I said that I have been turning down invites. She said that I have JOMO, “Joy Of Missing Out.”
She’s right, I do have it. And I love it. I can’t wait to be invited to something and not show up. Just kidding, but some social obligations are getting veto-ed much quicker than before that’s for sure.
Either by old age or by pandemic, we have been forced to sort out what’s important. I appreciate it.
I have a friend who enjoys NOT being chill. Last night she was saying how she has never been described as chill and most of the time she can’t wait to pop off. “I wish I could be chill, but God has other plans.” She was being funny but in this little rant there was actual chillness.
She has embraced her own individuality in these weird pandemic days of herd mentality and separatism, isolation and chaos.
May we all honor and embrace ourselves as is, as was, and as will ever be.
Release all heavier older stinky moldy outdated and expired thoughts feelings and behaviors. Unleash all the beasts, they no longer need your nurture and support nor your blood sweat and tears. Not for time or space, but for gravity. Be lighter. Be light.
Not much “doing” these days. Only “being”. The vibe has been reset and refreshed. You have left the mainland and now reside on an island. It is paradise. You are paradise.
