Are you walking through life awake or zombified?
It is very easy to get caught up in the chaos of life. With so much on our to-do list, some often fall into a daze state where they are going through the motions and just trying to get through the day without truly living it. Some people, no matter what circumstance they find themselves in, are always present and take full advantage of their situation. Using the arts of strategy and leverage, they squeeze more than enough out of even a trace of life’s opportunities. On the other hand, some people are lost in conscience, even though they seem to have everything going for them. They have more than enough opportunities, but can’t seem to muster tread in life to achieve genuine effectiveness. They are alive, but not fully present. The lights are on, but no body is home.
The only way to truly make a difference is to BE you
So true presence it is an important thing to stay aware of. How can you take full advantage of the opportunities in front of you if you are not wholly stepped into the game? How can you understand if you are not truly listening? If we are to get some tread in this world and make some real connections and creations, it is crucial that we first BE there. Bringing your ost authentic seld into this world will help infinitely more that any
That is why I ask “Are You Awake?”. It is a respectful acknowledgement if you are already present, and a gentle reminder to BE here if you are somewhere else. I also invite you to my content because it is all created with that specific intention. My calling is to use word and music to help myself remember that state of presence that was so strong when I was a child, and to subsequently provide a space for others to do the same. Check out my social media pages below for regular content if you haven’t already 🙂 I post blogs, videos, and music all the time!
