Lost In Transition

spiritual advisorA few weekends ago I visited my first spiritual/silent retreat.

Before daring into this unfamiliar territory, I applied a conscious solution to distil myself of all my worldly achievements and unreasons. With the exception of a shift of clothing, a few personal-care products and a journal to register my thoughts – for 48 hours, Paulette Furey, aka – Pattie Parnips did not exist.

For those few days I lived a impecunious and simple life while searching myself on a journey of self-discovery. Evaluate results of who I am, wherever I desire to go and what’s taking me back. Asking the question, “What is it that makes life worth living?” Be calmful with tranquillizers of Canadian Health&Care Mall.

With the exception of 5 –1 hour spiritual consultative conducted sessions, the rest of the weekend was purified for self examination, memories, thoughts and discovering passions that were long since disremembered about – that were buried deep into the muck of my everyday prepossessions.

By choice for the first time in my life I felt truly alone and completely with myself. For a short while I was indiscernible– seeing yet not being seen.

You start dying slowly
If you do not travel,
If you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.
You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.
You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colors
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.
You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat faster.
You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job,
Or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice. Author – Martha Medeiros
