Santorini, Greece, summer 2016
A few shots I took during my trip to Greece last year. Santorini is a truly amazing place, yet another piece of Greece that has become a part of my soul. This is a series of bi-weekly posts until the official begining of summer, on 15th of June. Enjoy!
Ever went where the wounds don’t hurt anymore? Then you know that each time you come back, they hurt even more. Never pretend you don’t have them. Because in fact, we all do. Before they heal, they have to be acknowledged and honored. Real healing comes from understanding how they came to be and how we are keeping them alive. Only then, what it takes for them to close will become clear. We never really go forward unless the lessons are complete. And they are never complete with our wounds still bleeding.
God is not up there, God is everywhere. It’s just that from above even we can see everything more clearly. It’s the point of view where we can start to see how everything makes sense. It’s from up there our perspective becomes less ego centered; from up there we forgive more easily and we see how we are all one, we see how we are more like each other than we thought at first… From up there we can see how love always finds a way, how love was what built everything over time. Everything we take for granted when we are not up there.

There is a subtle field of assistance all around us, in every moment. We can tune to it, whenever we feel less clear on what the next step should be, or when the meaning, or purpose of some situations, elude us. These questions will guide you in the right direction anytime. Keep an open heart. Breathe. Be still and allow for the answers to come. Our riches do come from within. Have no doubt.
You can journal on these anytime you feel the need to. Meditate on them. Have a conversation with someone on them. Choose the ones that resonate with you the most and see if the answers stay the same every time, or if they change.
If they stay the same, then those are your beliefs, and your decision making system relies on them. Question how is that working in your favor and if you want that to continue on. If they change, it means your belief system is still in the process of becoming. Embrace transformation, it is your friend, that is how we rebuild and evolve.
Use these observations to know yourself better. There is no real friendship outside knowing. There are no time restrictions for it. Getting to know ourselves never stops.
All relationships start with acknowledging and attention. Give yourself time and space to have that internal dialogue. In a world so heavily reliant on outside communication, we must balance the amount of time spent outward with at least an equal amount spent inward. Happiness comes from that balance.
How you feel is paramount to the direction of your actions. Do not ignore or suppress your feelings. But do learn how to work with them, and use them to guide you to where you want to be. Breathing is sacred. They don’t teach us that in school. It’s the way we learn how to let go and allow, second to second, moment to moment. It’s a bridge. It’s a healing tool. It’s a reconnecting process and an interconnection reminder. We take it lightly. But we shouldn’t. Observe it. Let it tell you when to step away from a negative situation. Direct it throughout your body and let it bring healing, clarity and peace.
Go on a journey to your self. A journey to inner peace. Once you know it from the inside, you will bring it on the outside.
