Only The Moon Understands The Beauty Of Love, Part 2

I was reflecting on my work, Only The Moon Understands The Beauty Of Love, earlier this morning.

As the moon’s silvery beams dance upon the surface of a placid lake, I realize that the reflection of my authentic self shimmers in the depths of my soul. Just as the moon’s reflection creates a mesmerizing scene on the calm lake, my true nature can be seen shimmering within the depths of my soul. I have always been different, and like the reflection of the moon, my true self is not always easily perceived, and it may take a still and quiet environment to unveil it.

In life, I often find myself consumed by external influences, societal expectations, and personal ambitions, which can cloud my perception of my authentic self. It is in moments of tranquility and introspection that I can dive deep into my soul, peeling back the layers of my persona to reveal the true essence of who I am.

The journey of self-discovery is a continuous process, much like the dance of the moon’s beams on the water’s surface. As I grow and evolve, my authentic self may shift and change, reflecting the various stages of my life. Embracing this fluidity and remaining open to the exploration of my inner self can lead to a deeper understanding of my true nature and a more profound connection with the world around me.

    This sentence particularly caught my attention:

    “In life, I often find myself consumed by external influences, societal expectations, and personal ambitions, which can cloud my perception of my authentic self.”

    These things are perhaps the primary reasons for people making choices that aren’t true to their hopes and dreams. Interests and preferences often are influenced by forces we don’t accurately measure, because their individual gravitational forces are so minute that we hardly notice, and yet our orbit shifts ever so slightly. Soon we find ourselves out of alignment with the stars and the bitter absolute zero of space begins to tempt us with its vast emptiness into which we could cast away our cares at a moment’s notice.

    If we don’t make a conscious attempt, each day of our lives, to recenter ourselves in body, mind, and spirit, we can find ourselves being misaligned, misfortunate, and unhappy. I’m quite fortunate that you and I happened to cross spheres of influence so suddenly, and I hardly believe it was random, as you were as lost as me, if not more so. We found each other, and in doing so, found ourselves. I hope that this can happen more often to more people, as it would make our world a much happier place to live in.

      I absolutely LOVE this comment!!!

      I am a free spirit. I have always believed in living life on my own terms. I am not bound by the societal norms or the expectations of others, and I choose to follow my heart and intuition wherever they may lead me. I am adventurous and curious, always seeking out new experiences and opportunities to learn and grow.

      For me, being a free spirit means embracing the unknown and stepping out of my comfort zone. It means taking risks and making bold decisions, even if they may not always be the most practical or logical choices. It means living in the moment and cherishing each experience, rather than worrying about the future or dwelling on the past.

      I oftentimes feel misunderstood or judged by others who don’t share my mindset or lifestyle. But ultimately, I believe that being true to myself and my values is more important than conforming to others’ expectations.

      Thank you for being the main character in my life story as we go on this adventure together. I love you!
