Silence of our True Self – Testing Your Inner Self

Today I was asked two important questions after selling a book to a Motivational Guru which ultimately was the reason why he bought my book “Journey of an Unraveled Road” which were the following:

Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for the greater good right at this moment regardless if you knew right now the hope for change in mind kind didn’t exist?

Would you have compassion for someone who against your own beliefs and in their attempt to purposely cause you harm in the sake of inflicting you pain and doubt?

To both, I answered confidently, yes with the reason that in the attempt of no hope, the domino effects that caused me to gain this insight with gratitude, would hope the ripple of my actions despite of fate I would face, would someday give those in the moment of lost despair would give them the courage to rise in a rational mindset, the ability to stand up for others fairly and equality without allowing personal opinion interfere with the act of doing what’s right for the greater good. He said I reminded him of a super hero that he couldn’t put his finger on. For 15 minutes on a 22 minute ride to airport, he looked up at me and wept and confessed something that I’ve heard from one of my closest friends, I know refer to as Oz and said “I thought I forgave my parent for the pain they caused, but I have to learn how to forgive them the noble way” which I replied “I’m still learning my friend as there is always a better way to go about it, I’m just sharing what I learned to help me get to where I am at currently.” When I helped him get his luggage from the trunk and as he looked down at my custom Converse he said “you’re the real life Wonder Woman” and my reply simply was “I’m no hero, I’m just someone in the pain of life was made to see the pain as beauty as the most beautiful stones that show their layers and colors have been beaten by the rapids through time” which he said “there so much I still need to learn.”

DC 1997

Wonder Woman is my favorite DC character for many reasons, ultimately because she puts her moral strength to the test and stands up for all regardless of her personal judgement. When people compare me to her, I feel I’m being “over glorified” as I never meant to be labeled a hero. The main Wonder Woman theme called “Wonder Woman’s Wrath” is a beautifully orchestrated piece. When we think of wrath, we think “all the hate” one feels. In many cases that’s the truth. In this piece, it’s the justices of the voices she defends as in the first movie, was the motivation she used to beat Hates due to the psychological manipulation he caused to create the war. “Journey of an Unraveled Road” was Frieda’s Wrath. Through my story, reflects the pieces of others pains and the ripples those pains caused within the people that were directly involved in my life. To be able to see this has truly been a blessing.

People have taken offense to some of the things that I’ve mentioned about narcissism. Taking it personal means you need some work. I truly feel that everyone is good, just off track. I feel people deserve redemption as long as they are making an effort to gain it. I feel that people don’t mean to be narcissistic, it’s the only way to protect yourself from others. But there is always a way, an easier way which is holding those accountable when they cross your boundaries. Respect is something that’s shifted through time. Getting back to basics is something I feel society needs. If we made the effort to just put personal feelings aside, I feel that ultimately we could learn from one another. Another favorite movie of mine is Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the theme song “Moon River” as it says one thing that holds true to real life “we are all after the same”. In my opinion what that same is, is to be happy and to be loved. And being receptive to others instead of taking things personal, we all have that chance to get there. We just got to try.
