My Journey

I heard a whisper within. My inner guide was trying to tell me something, but I didn’t want to hear what she had to say so I ignored the whisper.  With time, the whisper grew louder and became impossible to ignore. The whisper, my intuition, my inner guide, wanted me to open my eyes. I knew I had been sleep walking through life, but didn’t want to accept it. I was successful in my career, I lived in a fabulous apartment in San Francisco, I had a nice car, I was unhappy. I was torn between two lives. The life I was “supposed” to be living by society’s standards and the one I knew deep in my soul I should be living. I listened to my soul. I sold my car, gave up my apartment in the city and I quit my 9-5 job.

“The Boho Life” is the life I inspire to live every day. A life in which I am liberated from the farces of society. A life in which I am mentally and psychically free. A life in which I let my artistic soul shine. A life in which I travel often. A life in which I live by the ideals of truth, freedom and love.

I have a gypsy soul. I am a dreamer. A wanderer. A creator. A lover. A artist. All I want is to travel the world endlessly, inspire and guide others on their journey.

She Let Go {A Poem by Saffire Rose}

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.  She let go of the judgments.  She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.  She let go of the committee of indecision within her.  She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go.  She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go.  She let go of all of the memories that held her back.  She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.  She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

    I love this Boho Manifesto….and it’s magical to have found this blog and these words as this is where i’m at…..letting go. courting letting go again on this amazing journey. i believe it’s cyclical. i believe it’s daily. my freedom is in letting go. letting go of the energy leaks, where i lose power, where i give it away. i am thankful for the awareness and the authentic sigh of the breath in the release of letting go. thank you kindered boho friend.

    precious zen
