Deep inside…

Hello 🙂

There is something within us all, that we could never fully escape, no matter how hard we try. It is there from the beginning to the end, an inevitability of our subjectivity. There are many ways to describe it, indeed, as many as there are people in the world, if not even more. Sometimes we forget about it, being able to lose ourselves in the outside world, but it can come back at any time to eat us up from the inside. 

A dark cloud deep inside
It grows, you cannot hide
You want to break through
But it is part of you

It is the loneliness that comes with the fact that we are forever isolated within the world in our heads, left alone with our demons. It is the various pains we have lived through, that accumulated, covering us in darkness, leaving us scarred and scared. Connection is hard to find, hard to maintain, and even harder to deepen to a point where we truly feel connected to someone or something. It is a long path to walk to accept this loneliness, and the dark clouds gather as quickly as mosquitos at dusk. The more there are, the harder it gets to reach what lies inside, what rests in the middle of this darkness. As they increase, so does our pain, our feeling of disconnection, that no one understands us, that we really are all alone…sorry to break it to you, but actually:

You are not alone!!

In fact, everyone has that…EVERY.PERSON you’ll ever meet had to face this at some point or another, some dealing with it better than others, but it still remains as widespread as our need for air. Which is why one of the best ways to really know another person is to have lived the same pain they have. Connection through pain is the strongest, right after connection through love. Which is why we see people come together after horrible cataclysms, whether natural or artificial. Pain is strong, and it is forever a part of us.
BUT IT IS NOT ALL THERE IS!!!

Deep within the cloud of darkness, there is a core of light. There is the true you, the one hidden under all the darkness, under all the pain. It is hard to let yourself shine, for we are afraid that it would only hurt more, that the darkness will keep accumulating. The only way to overcome the layers of darkness and of pain is to reconnect with ourselves, the shining self that we keep inside, because it is just as much a part of us, and is always with us. Once we create this connection, and keep it strong, it is all we ever need, for we will always have it. Perhaps letting it shine is what has always been meant by enlightenment. This golden core can break through the dark clouds, like the the rays of the moon at night, piercing the sky and illuminating our path. This golden core is you. Hold on to it, and the darkness will eventually dissipate. Stay strong, and shine on!!
Blow the dark away
So that you can stay
Near the light within
And let the beauty in
Until next time,

Space Man…

Hello 🙂

I would like to share a little wisdom that I learned in Space, meaning that it will not be an in-depth analysis of any topic, but rather a little enlightenment about what a very famous but often misunderstood sentence/advice actually means. The saying is the following:

Go with the Flow. 


Right away, this simple sentence seems problematic because we must firstly understand what is meant by the Flow. The flow in itself is not something tangible with which we can interact easily, it is something that simply is. It is the constant progression of all things surrounding us. This means that it is outside of us, and not something over which we can have any control over.

Nonetheless, we are a part of it, which implies that our role within it can influence the way it goes, simply by being present. Which is exactly why we can be either on or off the flow, both of which will affect our lives as well as the external world in different ways. But what does it mean to be on the flow?? For surely it is not tangible like a river, where all we have to do is to take a boat, sit in it and let us be carried away by the moving waters.

Being on the flow consists of following our inner voice, a.k.a intuition, while keeping our thoughts, desires, and spiritual self in balance, without letting one overtake the others. We should think, but not lose ourselves in fantasies, desire without letting our passions take control of us, and be true to ourselves, while being able to let go and discover something new, which we would never have expected.

Letting go is also an important part of this whole flow, because we have to stop trying to take control of every single aspect in our lives, and believe that some things will simply work out by themselves. But beware, by this I do not mean to remain passive at all times, for one has to actively remain within it. Letting go only has to do with our thoughts, which tend to increase exponentially the more we pay attention to them, and to believe that things will work out well, if we give them the chance.

All this to say that it is important in life to take a deep breath, listen to what we keep telling ourselves, and continually move forward without hesitation, hoping for the best whilst being prepared for the worst, knowing that in the end everything is going to be all right.

Until next time,

Luca
