Turn things around

Inspiration

There is nothing like feeling inspired to get up in the morning and live a great day. But, sadly, most of us expect the day to bring inspiration, to make us feel like it’s a great day, to push us through. Truth is, you are the inspiration, and your attention allows you to feel it.

If I seek to feel inspired then I will put my full attention on what I do; but I won’t stop there, because I will choose to see everything I live, especially the hard times, with positivity and faith. I create my path and the way I feel; thus I create my inspiration.

Ways to turn things around

-If I encounter rude people, I ignore them or I do not engage myself emotionally with them.

-If I lose something or someone important to me, I do not let it pull me down but I try to get on with my life and envision a better future for me.

-If I see that things still do not go as expected, I use the frustration I feel as energy to seek other, more creative ideas and come up with other ways to create my success.

-If thoughts of any negativity start to creep in my mind, I use their energy and transform those same thoughts in ones of hope and strength. I create better scenarios in my head, ones which give me the capacity to feel better about myself.

The Birth of God

What the average man seeks

God is born from the thought of the average man. Man, deep inside is afraid of what he doesn’t understand about his own origins, outer space beyond the stars, the unknown in his own world.

Man’s intellectual mind overthinks, seeks answers to irrelevant questions. He doesn’t seek to become a better human being, but he looks for something fantastical, above his own ignorance.

Born from his fear

Because he doesn’t know himself. So, because he doesn’t know himself, he imagines, creates, gives a personality and a mind to this god/and or gods.

He seeks someone that can give him the light that he desperately needs because he feels without it inside. So, God is, in all man’s rantings and schemes, a direct product of man’s fear.

The mistakes of life

Making mistakes

I have made great mistakes. But, throughout life, knowing these mistakes of the past, I have come to see that all of them are there for a reason. No one is perfect. Yes, these can be giant mistakes, terrible mistakes, very bad mistakes; however, they are also teachers, but to learn from them is up to us.

If we don’t learn, we keep repeating them. So, it is always wise to pay attention and not get so into grief and shame. Anxiety is not a good friend, it doesn’t let the mind truly learn from mistakes. And to create success, whatever success means to each one of us, we must be able to pay attention and learn.

Being humble

Of all those mistakes, we may feel the self-pity, the frustration, the anger with ourselves. This is something natural, healthy, and it means we have the capacity to recognize we are flawed–which makes us more human, more empathetic. But, truth is, mistakes are an important part of life; because, like I mentioned, they’re teachers.

But teachers can only teach if the student is receptive. Being receptive is being open to new ideas, suggestions, philosophies to improve ourselves and move on. Being receptive then requires our humility, to accept that we have to change and that we are flawed; and humility to accept as well that we can indeed change and get better.

Adventurous to start…

Being adventurous

I think to be entirely oneself one must be brave, adventurous, not focused on the way others think and feel. I must connect with me, by focusing entirely on me. And the same goes for my activities, because in order to be successful I must create and do with freedom.

Creating and doing with freedom makes me feel joyful and confident. And life, in any aspect, requires this level of commitment from me. Commitment is not scary, or a burden, or a chore, if you feel joy and confidence in you.

Gaining experience as you go

And I often have felt afraid or overwhelmed when initiating a task, an activity, especially when writing the beginning of a story. But then again, creating and doing with freedom. So, I have come to understand that the biggest hurdle is the start of something, but that the start only asks for my adventurous spirit, my devotion for discovery.

It’s like exploring a place in which you’ve never been before. It’s all new, but as you start or enter the place then you become curious, and then more curious, and then you keep going with new ideas and driven by a passion to learn more about the place. And that is how experience comes to you, as you have the bravery to start and push yourself to keep discovering.

Critical…

Stress

Stress is a slow killer–killer of ideas, killer of positive attitude, killer of capacity for joy, killer of all health and good manners. If you have trouble sleeping, if your mind has problems shutting down and relaxing, then check your levels of stress. Personally, I have experience when it comes to stress and anxiety, which is why I started meditation years ago.

It really is that serious. You want to enjoy your life and what you do in it. That is the whole purpose of being alive. So, learn to manage your stress; because, I know, quite often, one may not see one’s stress as a critical life issue. Stress, undiscovered or not acknowledged, leads to many other psychological and physiological issues; and it changes your genes–the content and information of your actual DNA.

Clear communication

Assuming

Many times we assume in a conversation. I find that assuming can become an obstacle when it comes to clear communication. Our greatest way to connect to somebody is through listening and also sharing clearly how we feel. Sometimes assuming is presumptuous and obtuse, because it inflates our ego and disconnects us emotionally in the conversation.

Feeling what the other one feels

Feeling what the other one feels is empathy. It is something beyond the intellect and its desire to be right. It is putting ourselves in the mind and heart of that somebody, and then getting closer to their experience. This gives us greater insight, understanding, and it makes us more human–kind, generous, attractive, worthy of respect, love, and admiration.

Ideas/Characters

The birth of an idea

I find that, most of the time, the best ideas are born from simplicity. Take for example, the hero or villain in a movie or book. Something truly painful happened to them. A really troubled past made them who they are, regardless of the powers, weapons, or toys for combat they use now. Focus on the psychological change of each one of them.

And that is simplicity, because we have all suffered; so we can all relate to suffering and the psychological changes one may experience. All we have to do is take the suffering and add some interesting and creative experiences that shape the mind accordingly, and then we have a new character.

Driven characters

I make the character go through self-doubt, self-pity, anger, and all kinds of simple but real feelings. After all, my feelings lead me through my life, and they also lead the characters in my stories in order to be real like me. All pain and suffering exists in my life for a purpose, whether I like to admit it or not–school bullying, surgeries, separations, loss, bigotry, etc.

That exists to make me stronger. In the same sense then, a fiction character must allow himself to feel all his pain and go through a challenging transformation process; and then decide if to follow his anger as the villain, or to learn from the pain and gain strength as the hero.

The Book of 1st Witchcraft

This is a section from #3 in the epic series. An excerpt from “The Book of 1st Witchcraft.” Dark fantasy. Coming of age fantasy. Spiritual stories. Magic adventures. Paranormal stories. Ancient aliens and mythical creatures.

Critical moment of transformation

This is the moment Ben and his subconscious demons, his 7 sins, see each other face to face. Here Ben’s subconscious materializes as the book takes control of him…

Into the story – short excerpt

..”But also because Ben’s demons, monsters, sins, layers of existence, were there. And they were watching it all happen, as they seemed now unmoved by the event. Vegetation was being demolished.

Rocks, pebbles and all debris were flying around joined to the violent spiral. The corkscrew motion expanded and became more intense as the air turned electrified and filled with energy beams from the book.

And not even the time-traveling witch with her magic wand could bring him down and stop the funnel of air from reaching above the crowns of trees. As soon as she took out her wand from inside her cloak, then this one was repelled by the energy of The Verum Codex that filled the air.

The magic in the air

Elradon’s staff also struggled to resist the magic in the air, as this one was also rejected by the chaotic nature of the ancient tome. The red-headed girl tried to talk him down, because she witnessed that magic was not working here.

Red saw that Ben was lost, even inside that column of electrified air; but she wouldn’t give up on him, not at all, because she knew how much he was changing and how confused about it he really was.

And so, it happened that Ben peered down through the shafts of energy and the violent air and met her eyes; but he did not speak, not one word. “Ben!” she called over the loud wind currents. “I know you can hear me! I need you to be with me now!”

Benjamin Jones just stared at her, his eyes glowing red, his facial expression cold and austere. And no one really knew what he was thinking.

The demons of Ben

Inside the air funnel, his body was flashed with energy branches; but there was no pain or sorrow, only transformation. His demons looked down at her as well, then got near her, and attracted by the speech they were now studying her carefully.

She took a few steps back and eyed the dark creatures with certain apprehension, then continued to talk to him, “I imagine you’re turning into something more! I-I dunno what that is, but I’m really afraid for you; because I care, and because I want you to be safe!”

Elradon, who had been observing Ben and Ben’s demons closely, held on tight to his staff and pressed forward now, then he stopped by Red and spoke, “Ben! I’m not upset! I understand now!”

Then he took his time and regarded each sin or demon hovering around and above them. He remained calmed and confident, then continued, “These! These are you, aren’t they?! You have struggled too much, my boy! You must control yourself, because we must keep on the journey!”

Trying to bring him down

Then Red, seeing that Ben showed no signs of coming back down or even responding, took a few steps forth carefully, and struggling with the strong wind currents she finally said, “Please, whatever is going on, you must come down! We need you! Don’t let the book control you! You are good! Remember that!”

And then the time-traveling witch, who had stayed behind long enough, was now watching all the near area of the forest; and so, she became sad as her eyes fell on the destruction the strong wind currents and branching beams of energy had caused. Nature was sacred for her.

Nature was the origin of life for her. She loved Mother Nature, and this certainly weighed heavily upon her heart. And Arleas, the green cat to her side, sensed her resolve immediately and started to hiss in discontent.

But the witch ignored the trapped targoblin and proceeded forth. She wasn’t happy with Ben, and so she began to whisper under her breath and into the wind. Her hands thrust forward, feeling the charged air, measuring the black magic mixed with the white one.”…

The path of love

Love

The purpose of life is love. We all want to experience love. Seeking love, which is all the good and happiness, man falls into fear of not having it. This fear makes mankind do horrible things–like war, like bullying, like cheating and hurting each other, etc.

But all this fear creates a bigger distance and pushes away any capacity for love in us. Love then is a peaceful mind and not a mind which seeks desperately. Love must not be sought. Love must be discovered in you.

Beyond the conventional

To be discovered in you then, the seeking has to stop. Jumping from relationship to relationship. Going out with friends all the time. Pretending for others just to be accepted. All this has to stop.

As long as the mind seeks, obviously, the mind is too busy with the external to discover the internal. And for love to be discovered then, you must be fully aware of the internal. It is a rebellious path, because you must go against the norm that says to look outside you.

Precious time

Choose your people

So many of us spend time with people who do not support us, or who do not inspire us, or who only bring us self-doubt and negativity. But I have learned that it is vital to give your time only to people who help you become better at some level, not people who waste your time with stupidity or people who do not fit the life you want to lead for yourself.

Your time is precious

Now, I understand that sometimes we have to visit family, friends, or be in situations which are not ideal or inspirational. This happens to any of us. But I also understand that my time is precious, so I will use it mostly for what benefits me, for that which makes me feel loved and happy.

So, having in mind this, I will be direct with others. I will tell them exactly how I feel, and what I need. If they do not understand me or support me still, I will just walk away. I won’t leave them entirely, but I will spend less time with them. So, that’s my suggestion to you, and it is to learn to manage your time better, and to truly understand that your time on this earth is precious.
