Life Cycle

If a picture is worth a thousand words, why do we even bother talkin’
We scream profanities in each others’ face just cause we’re always arguin’
Why do we have to be the same just to get along?
Why do we all have hate just ’cause we all got somethin’ different goin’ on
You see we all live under the same sky, sharin’ the same atmosphere
We all may be a little different, but we all deserve to be here
So next time you see someone’s pain hidin’ behind their eyes
Tell ’em keep their head up, there’s more to life than what meets the eye

Metanoia: the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life.

I struggle with my world being shook when certain events happen without warning. What I mean by this is, any time some sort of change happens that interrupts whatever routine I have going on, my mind goes scattered and I get very off track.

When this happens, usually life as I know it gets altered in some form . Meaning I have to readjust and recreate a routine that works for me again. The past month has been like this, which explains me disappearing off of here for a hot moment.

So lately I have been making positive changes to my daily routine in hopes to create a new lifestyle. A better lifestyle. This does not mean the one I had was flawed. Throughout our life I feel as though we are constantly evolving. I am evolving, so I readjust as I feel necessary.

Currently, I am studying chakras, and crystals. I am still just on the first one: The Root. I have also begun practicing meditation using an app I discovered called Headspace (found in the Apple App Store if anyone wonders). To study the chakras, I am reading a book titled “Wheels of Life:A User’s Guide to the Chakra System” by Anodea Judith, PH.D.

I know this isn’t what I originally based this blog on, but I am trying not to bother myself with that and just let it all flow out. I am learning to take care of myself mentally as well as physically, because while it is good to do unto others, sometimes other do not do unto you. You cannot pour from an empty cup. I am learning this lesson, and working on it.

I am in the process of transforming my mind and soul. I want to learn how I tick, and what moves me. Life is such a mysterious journey. I want to uncover all it’s mysteries that I can while I have it. So maybe this wasn’t a book review. Maybe I just need an outlet, and my fingers lead me here.

UPDATE: I switched to a more modern chakra guide! I now am using Chakra Healing by Margarita Alcantara.
