My Synaptic Life

While I think sometimes labeling ourselves as being empathic ( or as an HSP , sensitive, psychic etc ) is helpful for people to find like minded folk with whom to learn about aspects of ourselves we need to be careful about ever limiting who we are. As I’m sure we all have many aspects to ourselves that fall outside any label we may identify with. I personally find that I myself are unaware of some of the skills, abilities and insights that are within me and are often surprised at what I discover about myself and my relationship with others and the planet.
Whilst I identify myself as being human to a certain extent I find it very difficult to identify with my cultural surroundings and societal expectations. I endeavour to be true to myself even if it means upsetting others and I feel it is necessary to be authentic as I feel I , to some extent have a purpose.
i’m beginning to see myself as part of the whole and that I am simply here to serve a purpose that is beyond my vision as seeing myself as an isolated human being. I will quote Melissa La Flamme who so eloquently explains my current understanding:-
“When you get real, it is actually not about you. Your individual program is only the ground from which you step. From which you step and choose whether you will make this life of yours a walk of grit and beauty, or one of accommodation to the forces that insist you do it their way, be well-behaved, produce, consume, make nice, and as the poet, Mary Oliver says, “barely breathing and calling it a life.”
Thing is we’re not talking a self-improvement project; that’s only the gateway. We are being used. By Spirit. One way or the other: we go consciously or we are abducted — individually and collectively, now. So it’s a great time to dive in.
When we realize we have no choice but to offer ourselves up — like a sacrifice — to the mystery of Great Spirit’s guidance, this guidance insists on shaping us as a soul-centered contributor. And we’re in it! Soul’s got us. And Spirit carries us along. We’re goners to those egoic, mechanistic, competitive ways; the ways that have undone the earth and so many souls who walk the earth, swim her waters, send roots down into her and watch from the skies”
