- Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way...
- Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The gray rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it...white shores and the beyond. A far green country under a swift sunrise.
My faith reaffirmed…
Today was an absolutely amazing day. Probably one of the best I’ve had in years. I felt so at peace that I cried. I learned valuable lessons today that I will carry with me and try to practice in my life every day.
This Holiday season has been extremely hard for me considering certain things I’ve been through this past year, and I’ve been feeling somewhat lost again. I needed some “me” time. A friend had recommended a Wicca shop in the city that she thought I would enjoy, and so after running some errands, I decided to take the train and check it out. I felt so at home there. Besides buying some oils, candles, books & incense…I decided spontaneously for some reason to ask for a private session and luckily enough, he had time.
So I went into a tiny room in the back - adorned with herbs & the smell of incense, candles & crystals. The vibe was just amazing. I felt at peace instantly. I sat with him for a little over an hour - and I don’t think I’ve ever learned so much about myself. Things I’ve been trying to figure out for so long, my “lost” feelings - they were all brought to light. I found peace in his words and wisdom such as I have never from anyone else previously. He spoke about things from my past and feelings in a way that you would think we had been close friends for years, without me having to say a word. He understood without me explaining, when the people I am closest to couldn’t even understand though I tried to explain hundreds of times. I won’t go into details about our conversation - it was too long, and I like keeping discussions personal. I will only give a bit of advice in my own words:
Rebelliousness is not freedom. We can only be truly free when we stop trying to prove everyone wrong, and focus on proving ourselves right. Our freedom comes from being true to who we are, from allowing ourselves to discover who we truly are. Do not let the criticisms and insults of others bring you down. Their criticisms do not show you what you are, your mistakes do not show you what you are - they only show you what you are not. Do not try to change others if they do not wish it, do not change for others. You must change only for yourself. And only you can change your life. Do not wait around for everyone else to change it. And when you are ready for this, the energies of the Universe will come forward to assist you. We are a result of our thoughts. Release the negativity, those who bring it to you and the things that create it. We have the ability to move past the illusions of this world to see the truth. If only we open ourselves to all of the possibilities.
Home from work…
