1. the color between blue and yellow in the spectrum

When entering the world of honest awareness many people come across my path who tell me to be patient with not only myself but the world around me. I divided myself for a bit, starting inside. For many months I took the time to slow down my thoughts and get to know this person that was living within the shell I call Alexandrea. I also thought that I needed to be nothing but peace. So I chose peace, over and over again, till I was left with the singular understanding of our one-ness and connection. I began to project love in every day life with the strangers around me, but I found that just because I changed that didn't mean the reality in which I functioned changed, and I began to look, really look and think about what was outside of myself. The world was the same, it was just I that was different.
Then I noticed on my social media how the idea of peace and love was radiating within inspirational posts, photos of the world in its nature beauty. But it is one thing to live within inspirational quotes that shower the body with water and cleanse the surrounding skin that encompasses our mind. To then take this water and drink from it, to have it begin to change the chemical makeup of how we are made that is the next step. Some call it inner purifications, but I find purity to hold too many nuances and comparisons to what is thought of as wrong or right. I want to live in a world that goes past our words and actions and invests our thoughts.
Many have placed the seed of the mind as our ultimate source of power, and it is. Books, audio tracks and stories tell us how to harness this using manifestation, understanding our very own inner poet of intention, how we rhyme and pluck through the ideas we bring to the table within meditation. To do this it takes a person being an active participant in how they want to shape the thoughts of their life. Each shape will be new, because it is created from the collective data that makes you you. Each person I meet, no matter how infuriating or full of joy that they make me, I can see how it had been possible to come about and create that form and shape that makes them. From there we have to honor that creation that form takes, understanding that something new and unique is what will advance and foster a mind where ideas can find a home. This ability to see the possibilities of a person or a situation does not stem from me. It stems from the source energy which is all of us. Which is deeply routed inside, it is what aligns our chakras when we are fully in our bodies, it is what snaps us awake when an event occurs that wakes us up to the simple fact that we are alive. It is the same energy and perception that helps me to understand the complexity of our existence. Without going home to the source energy that is inside, I would just be functioning on the physical plane of the world we live in, and I could have no hopes of affecting change. To cause change, we need to see the world, both as it is and what it would be.
This is a chance to have people own up to the fact that we are all a part of a energy that shifts us both individually and collectively. The ability for others to see our perspectives with clarity is not a reflection upon our own ability to see, in a sea of endless possibilities it is not irrational to find ourself meandering upon the path. But it takes honesty within ourselves to admit if we are truly living presently day by day moment by moment in that full moment that surrounds us. I am going to be 25 and I realized, I don’t want to miss a moment. Not missing a moment does not mean that I am afraid of how to shape my life, that I need to jump off a cliff, or eat the most outlandish food, it comes from saying I don’t want to under appreciate the life that I have. The Life force in me that make it capable for me to connect and in that connection to learn. To connect to other energies. To experience. To make ideas out of that connection rather than ideas resonated in fear.
Our future rest upon the choices of the incoming generations. And if we act unselfishly, with wisdom of the past that lives within our DNA as well as our text books, if we learn from those histories we have a chance for innovation. We see what changes must be made and yet still the appropriate people are not coming into power to affect change. We need to have the people we want to change our world step forward and come out as something bright and unbiased. These people need to be strong within a sense of self. The only way to get out of the ties of the past is to cut them from ourselves. Our government is no longer doing the work in which we need. Our religious leaders are struggling to comprehend and remain prevalent in a world that will continue to change and develop. Our schools need to be teaching facts where facts are do and fiction where it can flourish our creative minds.
These upcoming generations are seeds and if they are fostered in environments for growth and stimulation they can be given the opportunity to make choices without bias. To create without fear. The challenges of high school should not be about physical means, but rather the challenge of inner hunger to do the best work when minds are melded. Find out how each person collaborates, work with those people and see what can be created in the best of circumstances.
The reality is that people have both light and dark and therefore in our darkness and separation that forms the older we get we can be cruel. The cruelty comes from the wall we place between our borders, in our neighborhoods, to the fences of our houses, even to the social norms of family dynamics. We see borders for safety but in this entrapment we are missing out on the brilliant influence that is diversity. Instead of children having to leave the home, go to college and discover who they are, why shouldn’t they get to explore other religions, ideas and mind sets in a home that is supportive? That takes great acceptance from families. It takes us removing those harsh walls around us, around our cultures, and letting the grip on our own personal ideologies and ideas go. We never know what can be created by another person from the disregarded idea of another. So to limit any thought or even any influence would be wasting the understanding of melding. To blend, knowing that blue and yellow make green. And thinking, if those colors never bled what would I paint the grass?
