Many of us are living life in a trance of perceived safety, doing what is expected, and living within the confines of what is logical.  Yet this life isn’t your life.  Its not what you want to be, not what you were made to be, and you aren’t using your gifts to their fullest extent.  In essence, you are living numb.  You are living life asleep.

If you want to wake up from your slumber, you have to leave this concept that everything in life is measurable.  What we can touch, see, and explain is only part of our world. Throughout human history, we have perceived a variety of truths that were logical, tangible, and defined, only to find out that later they are simply false reality.  We have ignored our spiritual self for far too long.  In a culture and society of measurables, we find ourselves fantasizing and lifting up the intangible for a time, only to later dismiss it.  We need to open our eyes and embrace the intangible!

The intangibles are what make our experiences real, exciting, and soulful.  Its that unexplained connection you have to a new friend, or the ability to go lengths of time without speaking to an old friend only to pick up as if time never passed.  Its that unmistakeable feeling when in crisis where you know without a doubt, it is going to be OK.  It is that sinking feeling when you know something horrible has taken place, but have no basis until finding out later a loved one has passed.  It is that intuitive moment where you accidentally avoid catastrophe because you just felt something wasn’t right.  Its that creative spark of individuality where a project catches fire and becomes a transformative piece of art, music, or experience.  It is that gut feeling when all odds are stacked against you that you defy the pundits and numbers to open the world to a greater reality.  This greater reality is out there – all the time.  Wake up!

As we worship at the alter of science and concrete reality, we are missing the greater truth and the experience of being human.  This life, trying as it may be, is a gift.  Treat it as such.

The reality is, we only know part of reality.  It is time to embrace the parts of you and your life that you can’t explain.  Open your mind’s eye to a greater world.  Awaken to your possibilities, AWAKEN TO YOUR LIFE.


About awakenandrise

Throughout my adult life I have worked in education. I have enjoyed this career to the fullest, but I have recently discovered there is more to me. As I asked the questions: "what are my gifts?" and "what is my purpose?" A whole new world of writing has revealed itself. The purpose - to inspire everyone to a greater life, greater connection, and to use their gifts to Awaken & Rise! My first book, "Awaken & Rise" is now available on Amazon! My purpose is to let you know, despite the lies and fear spread by this world and our society to keep you from living the life you dream about, it is possible. Just simply AWAKEN & RISE!
