A Ship to cross the Sea of Suffering

"Real happiness is found in the struggles we undergo to realise our goals, in our efforts to move forward." Daisaku Ikeda


Lately I have been worrying a lot. It wasn’t until today that I actually acknowledged this…

I am a natural worrier. If anything, perhaps I worry more than your average worrier. One could say that I’m a bit compulsive. A bit on edge. Curiously trying to make sense of things all the time…

Since learning to be more ‘self aware’ and notice my emotions… that’s all I seem to be doing. Yet I still feel like I am so far away from being the self aware and proud ‘know who I am’ type person that I truly yearn to discover.

Last night I found a great article on Empathy.  Titled 30 traits of an Empath. I almost fell off my chair to find something so well suited to my nature and mind. So I tracked down the blog it came from and left this message on their page.
— Lately things have been so confusing, actually in fact most of my life I have felt this way. In my own words…Trying to make sense of what I am feeling, thinking..etc etc.. generally to no avail I spend most of my days confused and unclear of where I get these feelings, memories and my sensitive nature from.
I am 24 years old now, and just wanted to thank you for sharing such deep insights into Empathy. I am willing, and hungry to know more on how I can manage myself, and my environments.
All 30 traits have rivers that run through me…
Most of my life, I have shut the ‘spiritual, intuitive’ self away in fear. But am returning to the source like many other human beings at this critical time in our evolution and history. —

That about sums it up. And perhaps at a later date i will share some of the traits with you. But for now, I feel that I am one step closer to unpacking my worry. MY concerns, my heightened state of feeling and compassion.

A lot of cogs in the wheel of human revolution have been working overtime in the last fortnight. Helping me to keep changing, and transforming my karma, and gaining stronger foundations on the true me… the Buddha sitting inside, looking out. Searching for words and ways to create powerful dialogue. Create Value. Purpose in this life of mine…

Why have/ Why am I so worried about what people think?

When was it that this crippling self doubt and uncertainty in my OWN thoughts seeped so deeply into my skin.?

I guess the ‘why’ doesn’t really matter. It’s what I am going to do with it, that counts.

“Dialogue starts from the courageous willingness to know and be known by others. It is the painstaking and persistent effort to remove all obstacles that obscure our common humanity.” Daisaku Ikeda
