A journey into the mind of shep!

22 posts in this topic

As we live our lives we pick up and gain new things and we also lose some of those things. These are usually material possessions but sometimes they are parts of ourselves. They get lost because we as people adapt and change based on the life experiences we face. I am one of those people who has at one time or another lost something.

When that happened i found the part of myself i had lost when i was a child. The part that the system and life experience blasted out of me at a young age. I like to call it my true self. And i soon realized that if you look at who you truly are, and i mean truly. Strip away your possessions. Your privileges. All that is you on the outside and look within. You will realize we all have something golden within ourselves.

These are as follows: Integrity, Authenticity, Compassion, Courage, Truthfulness

I give you this inner look into me, My nickname is Shep! it has always been me. I am the one who stands, the one who helps, the one who fights, the one who has the courage to defend those weaker than himself, I am the one who is Truthful to the bitter end. I am the one who will sacrifice all his personal life gains in monetary or material possessions for his core values.

Because when it's all said and done. All any of us really have is who we are! and to betray your Integrity, Authenticity, Compassion, Courage, Truthfulness. Is to betray yourself. And to betray yourself is unforgivable. When i close my eyes for the last time, I will depart with a smile.

This will be the most insightful and passionate post i ever write. Because it comes from a place of Authentic Love for the world and those around me. 

Keep fighting the good fight. And remember. NEVER EVER LOSE WHO YOU ARE! Even if that means accepting death because you will not bend to the will of tyrants.

Not giving a shit about money and possessions is very freeing, isn't it?

I used to be really selfish. Then I met a friend who was very generous.  I watched her give to others, do things for others and I wanted to be like her.  It feels so much better than being selfish.  What's funny is, after I adopted that philosophy, I've never lacked much of anything since. There's always abundance in my life and it feels good to give, teach what little I do know and be of service to others.  I don't fear giving because I'm always receiving. I do realize that I am not as grateful as I should be a lot of time, still working on that!

We all have room to be better people! but we should not do it with an expectation of receiving in return. Not that you are. Just wanted to make that clear.

Rock on, fearless leader!

We are meant to inspire each other as Cinnamon was inspired by her friend's generosity.

Years ago I read a book about soul healing and the author was a curandera (Spanish culture) who helped people by bringing back the soul parts that had been lost through various ways but mostly from trauma. Oh, to be whole again!

Integrity, Authenticity, Compassion, Courage, Truthfulness are virtues from within untouchable by governments as they cannot be enforced by mandate.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. - Buddha
