Family – Blog No. 55

family

Family is what you make of it. It can be anything you like. It is said that you cannot choose your family but you can choose your friends. I am not sure that is entirely true. I suspect that there are instances where it is possible to choose your family. It depends who you are and where you choose to call home.

Every single person on this planet has at one time or another been a part of a family. Whether that family proved to be dysfunctional or not is immaterial. Whether the dynamics were skewed, or the values lacking, a family at base-level inception wants the best for all its members and this means it will pass on its greatest strengths in addition to its weaknesses. It is what a person makes of weakness that determines their future.

Family is a social concept. It works. It is not something that is determined by a name, or a label. It is a feeling. An understanding. Family members get each other. That is how you know you are family. A family celebrates its members. It is not intolerant of them, nor does it try to repress its lessons, if it is wise. What are lessons for, unless to learn from?

Senses – Blog No. 15

5senses1-01-01-01You have physical senses of which you are (mostly) aware.  Apart from those that you have purposely suppressed, repressed.  In your allegiance to society’s flawed say-so, you are subjugating yourself by denying the truth of your reality.  If you concentrate, your senses explain your true reality to you.  Do not be fooled, listen and learn.  You let your senses get bent by conditioning, you allow your senses to be told what to feel and what to do.  This is not productive.  You need to change your circumstances so that society listens to what your senses have to say, not the other way around.

Celebrate your senses.  Know that you have more than five.  You have a sense of being, for instance.  A sense of balance, of understanding.  Use every sense made available to you, do not be afraid to succumb to their pull, their sway.  Your sense of mind is another valuable gift given to you by Nature.  Do not shun the given.  Should you not realise that your suppression – repression – of your senses is a fatal flaw in your being, you will find yourself on the outside of the inside.  You do not want to be on the outside.  Bring yourself in, into yourself, embrace your understanding.  You have every capacity to understand and mould your reality, and then you reserve the right to break that mould.  Your mould, your right to change its shape.

Consider that you see only what society wants you to see.  Change that.  Consider that you smell – on a subliminal level – the subtle musk of other human beings, the ‘attraction scent’ given off by women, men, despite the inappropriateness of this reality in our über politically correct society.  These scents are enough to mess with your head if you are not aware that you are affected each day by the raw Nature of others.  The subtleties happen to you all day, every day, should you be in contact with other humans.  If you should spend a lot of time with others, your senses will quite likely be more developed than you perhaps give them credit for.  This is an advantage.  Know that being alone does not preclude you from sensing to perfection your actuality, it simply means that you must become more attuned to your wants, your needs, your knowing.  Senses are knowing; all-knowing.  Trust them.
