a Story Told

The power of telling your story cannot be underestimated.  Your life is your story and yet your story is only that, a story.  It is not the essence of you or even the result of you.  Part of this journey is understanding you are much more than your story and at the same time using this story for your own enlightenment.  Celebrate your story by sharing it with others while you contemplate the nuances of the tale.  What lessons have you demonstrated?  And I say demonstrated because learning is a process of demonstration.  It is like building a tree house, looking up at it and appreciating your accomplishment, then using it for your highest Joy.  How would you do it differently next time; …can it even be improved on?

Share your story and then contemplate your desires and dreams.  This is the story of your past and who you were all along the path combined with your present story of who you are, extending to the story of who you will become… the future self…your dreams and aspirations.

My story is found here on my website and while it is brief, meaning much was left out, it is the part I find most significant to who I am now and who I desire to be.  Identity is a funny animal.  I mean identity is so fleeting and yet a core remains which guides the daily discoveries of self.  Certain identity is chosen before birth and is fixed for each lifetime.  Things like race, heritage, sex, gender, and such are fixed at birth.  As much as you may try to change these the reality is fixed.  So what you do with the cards you are dealt so to speak is up to you and this defines your story!

I find this journey of discovery and self-realization to be invigorating and enlightening!  While at the same time it is daunting and intimidating.  Looking into the eyes of God often seems to be more than anyone is willing to do.  However, this is our journey!

The next step for me is embracing my dream of a Love Based Society and while I left myself out of this book on the topic, this is the world I see myself living in.  What my identity is does not matter, it is unimportant.  What I crave most of all is the feeling of belonging without judgment… total acceptance… the support of society and the love of my neighbor, living in a world where everyone is supported and loved because we all realize our connection, our interdependence.

So Share your story!  Live your dreams and on every step of the journey give gratitude for the opportunity!  I certainly do, … deep gratitude to you for reading this tale and for sharing your own, together we make great harmony, a wave upon the ocean of life!

What Next Cont.

By loving a transgender person you have embarked on a grand journey of discovery that has no bounds.  We are all on a journey to discover who we are.  In the process of thinking and doing, we see who we are not.  Along the way many personas emerge, and with each step you are closer to who you really are.  In the end we discover that there is really only one, and this is GOD.

Who you are attracted to guides you closer to discovering your inner self.  Since the world is an inside job, we must look within to find the source.  We do this by looking around us and discovering what we are creating!  It is much like a house of mirrors that distorts and exaggerates our true nature.  This is where we resort to our feelings and let them guide us because our eyes betray. 

Close your eyes and connect to your feelings right now.  I will wait.  …. Take a least a minute to feel deep inside.   Identify each feeling and simply acknowledge it.  Maybe it is calm, maybe it is anger, maybe it is affection but no matter what it is say “I see you, and all is well”.  Be careful not to judge here, but simply observe.  Make a list of all the feelings you observe and yes this may take longer than one minute, it is worth every second.  The deeper you look the more you will find, so let consciousness flow.  Now set this list aside for later use and go about your day, still making no judgments.  Anger is not bad and loving affection is not good, unless you say so, which just happens to be the next step.

Somewhere in that soup of feelings are desires and dreams.  Get in touch with those next and this can be done at any time, but usually best when things are quiet.  Notice what feels good and what seems to cause pain.  Certain thoughts or dreams will excite you and make you feel lighter, write these down.  Other thoughts will scare you and can be painful, write these down also.  Action is not required at this stage so just relax and feel.  Take your time and keep these writing in a journal or diary.  It is important to come back to them at some point though. 

The next step is to embrace these feelings and explore each one all the while being aware of your thoughts, emotions and feelings.  If you are male but have the desire to dress as a woman then do so and get help if needed there are links on my website.  If you are female but feel that you should have a penis then try one on, most XXX video stores have strap-ons you can purchase(for adults only!).  Take your time and notice how you feel along the journey.  If you are adolescent then it is even more important to take your time and not to run from your feelings.  Write to me if you need someone to talk to, I am happy to help. 

This process of looking within and feeling your feelings can take a lifetime, so do not get discouraged.  Remember it is about loving all of your aspects and simply being who you are.  Let go of expectations and relax, simply be yourself!

Community of One

Social interaction is something that all humans need to survive.  We are social animals!  This need can be difficult to meet when you feel like an outsider or if you feel like you do not belong.  Finding your place in the world can sometimes be a life long journey, and it is worth pursuing.  We all have a reason for being and finding that can be one of the most satisfying things you can do in your lifetime.  If you need help with this I am happy to assist.

This journey begins within your own heart, not out in the world.  Those who look outside themselves for answers, go without.  Upon inner reflection and getting comfortable with yourself you can begin to explore the outer world.  Just because you are going through some motions like going to school, going to work, and doing activities does not mean you are exploring.  So what do I mean?  I mean once you discover who you are, sharing that with the world and looking for loving acceptance.  If you have found the acceptance within your heart then you will find it in the world. 

I like to think of my life as a rose bud unfolding, revealing its inner beauty.  So now that you have decided to share yourself with others then get out there and re-member.  Join groups that interest you and give your all.  Keep the groups limited to a few that you are passionate about and become passionate about them.  Volunteer in the community, be active, and most importantly do this from authenticity.  This means be honest with yourself about who you are and share that even if it is non-conforming.  It does not mean that you try to be different, it means that you be yourself without concern that you will be accepted, because you have accepted yourself! 

Once you have accepted yourself all else is gravy!  If someone objects or questions who you are that is fine, because what they think of you is none of your business.  Objections and resistance from the outer world is simply a sign that you have more inner work to do.  Do not waste your time attempting to change them, instead go within and change your own heart.  You will be amazed at the reception you get from the outer world when your inner heart is healed!             😉 Sequoia Elisabeth
