I’ve forgotten what this blog was all about. Finding Fleur – finding that awesome girl who’s hiding on the other side of this neurotic pile of self-obsessions, misinterpretations, desperations, and the pain arising from the opposing forces of people-pleasing compulsions and self-realisation desires.
There’s me. And there’s Fleur.
“Don’t look down; just cross the bridge
And when you get there, you’ll be glad did
There’s a better life on the other side”
Today is a sunny, beautiful, gorgeous, absolutely summery-flowery-wonderful day outside, yet I am sitting inside ticking off to-do lists (or at least, somehow, trying to), and riding out the inner battles of what must be done, what should be done, what others want to be done, and desperately trying to find that one stream of consciousness that tells me what I actually want, and then feeling guilty for focusing of self-interests. Whereas Fleur would just don a flowery dress and run out into the sunshine and play, embracing everything and everyone, and get her daily dose of healing sunshine, and not give a flying fuck what anyone thinks.
Melody Fletcher says, “Stop comparing yourself to your Higher Self.” Well, it’s hard, but I’m very grateful for that advice. Our human selves could never fully live up to the image of our divine selves. I can seek and apply and integrate aspects of Fleur, but I will never be her. And I mustn’t let that discourage me.
But for now, I’ll just have a good cry and watch Louise’s cat stomp all over me and not give a fuck (because the only emotion she understands is her own anxiety) and maybe have a soothing drink at antisocial hours. After all, life is just an illusion, right?
