it costs what for shipping?!


You ever buy something on eBay, whatever it is, with the claim that it’s a “genuine” or “authentic” insert description of item here. Yet, you know it just can’t be “genuine” or “authentic” because, aside from just knowing better, it costs about one-eighth of what you know it should cost, the pictures aren’t helping the cause and “genuine” or “authentic” is spelled incorrectly.

Yet, sometimes, not always, maybe more than we’d like to admit, we still buy the junk.

Why? Well, it’s cheap. It’s easy. And, we probably kinda hope and think that it’ll turn out ok. Even though the little voice inside of our heads is telling us not to click the button. The ironic part about it all is, even though we’re the ones buying, you actually try to sell yourself on the idea.

But, you know what the real kicker is? We just know better. And, we still do it.

We live our lives, too much, as though we’re trying to get away with using junk. We’re not our genuine selves, or act from a place of authenticity. We take shortcuts. Yet, even though we know better, we try to sell ourselves and the people around us, on the idea that the easy way can be the right way. But, it’s not. It’s junk. Eventually, sooner than later, whatever it is will expose itself as junk and the cost to take the right path will be greater than had you just started there to begin with.

There is nothing we need to sell anyone. There is no two-way transaction here. Ultimately, nothing of what you do, think or act upon changes hands. It is simply you. Think of it as though you were the only person on this planet. Would you feel the need to impress anyone? To judge? To speak louder than you need to? No. There wouldn’t be an audience for any of it. It would just be you.

On your own, none of any of that junk would do anything for you. It wouldn’t further who you are, it wouldn’t make you feel better about yourself and it wouldn’t contribute to your evolution. It’s a distraction. That’s not to say that the people around you and the experiences you have are a distraction, it’s to say that they can act as a distraction to the genuine and authentic nature of your true self. I don’t feel inclined to give a list of the most common examples because I think we’ve all been a part of it at one time or another. We’ve all felt when we’ve tried to make that “sale”.

The Universe isn’t trying to put you to task. It’s not a bunch of trick questions on a pop quiz. It’s not trying to sell you on anything or get you buy something. It’s actually really really simple; be that of which you been armed with, Love. You. Every time you feel like you’re getting that pull that just doesn’t feel right, ask, “Is this Love? Is this really me?”

Truth is, as soon as you need to ask those questions, you already have the answer.

Be Love.
