I feel like all the characters in Charlie Brown. Particularly Marcie with the glasses, you can never see her eyes. It’s like she is in another world and just has a sensible comment every now and then. I recently looked back at some of the Charles Schultz cartoons and sayings and quotes and realized how they emulated life so well. I am realizing there are many Schultz quotes that emulate life’s natural processes very well. According to law of attraction what you are vibrating is what you are putting out and is essentially what you get back and it is a reflection of where you are “at”. I believe this. Call it karma. Call it wacky. Call it sensible but non sensible. Point is we create our own worlds and perspective and how we live and what we choose and how we exist play a huge impact on life and how the everyday process winds up or winds down. So I say if it feels good then do it, if it doesn’t feel good then don’t do it. That’s my motto these days.
Good is light and grief is dark? Yes in the emotional terms. So how is that suppose to help and advance me? Well because if there was no dark we would not be pushed into the light and desire for the light. Light as in happy and healthy and bliss feeling as opposed to dark and heavy and stressed and sad feeling. Dark as in tough things that happen that are hard to swallow emotionally and Light as in happy things that show up in our world that we need to receive and let happen. We still have the choice in how we perceive and navigate through these things in life. Do you wanna wake up and feel like shit every day or wake up and feel good every day. ME, I wanna feel good and it has taken a long time to understand what that actually feels like and how I have complete control over that, which seems weird. I guess the point is to live happily we create our own happy life. In order to do that I believe we have to continually be in alignment and connected with our spirit so we have peace and clarity to be able to receive what we desire. Should we get what we desire? Yes!
This brings me back to dark and light. We need both, yes. That is how I get through death and grief. If you follow my blogs or have not been in touch for a while yes both my 2 moms passed away this Summer/Fall season. I never once asked why or said this isn’t fair. I understand the dark and welcome the dark even though it doesn’t feel so hot. Perhaps my first movie Star Wars subconsciously prepared me for the darkness in an odd way. I dunno. Perhaps the undoubting affection and loyalty and belief from my moms is what holds the dark at bay and makes the dark journey worthwhile. Perhaps shifting my perspective to the “world is good” instead of the “world is bad” make all the difference. Perhaps believing in humanity and the goodness is the trick. Perhaps meditation and eating green is the answer. Perhaps being still and just listening is what helps project us into happy land. Perhaps the solid belief in your self is what makes you shine and helps put out those dark vibes. Perhaps believing that we are all energy and connected and we are just a spec on this earth is what is needed. Maybe understanding we have an ego and emotions but we are really part of this one connected sprit is enough to live happily?
I really don’t have any answers or suggestions right now. But I do know that everything is ok and always working out for us. It took me a long time to understand this but to truly live and believe it is another thing. Charlie Brown always celebrated holidays and had friends around. There was always muffled noise in the background of voices, I like that concept nowadays. As soon as you can stop caring what everyone else says and thinks then you are really on your way is what I believe. I don’t mean be insensitive, it means listen to your self, take in what others say but only take out what serves you best and apply to your life.
So I guess good grief is just another way to acknowledge that with light there is dark and so is life and we must keep going forward and expanding as human beings. Darkness happens every day but until you “experience” something you really don’t know. You also don’t know the depths of how something can move you until you go through it. I think it’s how you utilize the dark and light that really makes the difference. I am humbled by the dark and thankful for the light.
