“What now?”, I’m thinking. What now. I accomplished my year long once a month blog from 2014-2015 on notions I was having post-Shift. Time went by until I retired almost a year ago this month. Technically it was 1 Aug 18, but if you have leave days accrued you can use them leading up to your actual retirement date. I had about 36 days I believe… I knew I was going to finally write about what led me into the Shift, which I accomplished in ReNewal. Moved onto my Canyon Lake Retreat and private words written in a journal from 2014. Done. Something popped into my mind about the UFO phenomena which brought us to Unidentified. Moments have passed by until this moment in contemplation. I believe that most individuals have at least some general theme on WordPress, right? I mean for the most part. You write about what you love and something that you can identify with. Who you are. Who am I.
That is always such a brilliant question. I never have liked being put in a box and
labeled though. I am a Marine (established
the significant amount of discipline I bring).
I am a Soldier (defined me for the last 10yrs until retirement). I am a Runner (since my first marathon in
1993, Marine Corps Marathon in DC, to my next one in McAllen, TX this Jan 2020). I am an INFJ (never heard of the Myers-Briggs
test until my senior military training as a major and found myself as “this”
personality trait). I am an Empath (“wow”
and “of course”, it all made sense after coming to the realization in
2013). I am a Roller Skater (since I was
7yrs old and still jammin’ on). I guess
one of the overarching ones is, I am a Mind-Body-Spirit Enthusiast (a phrase I
started using a couple years ago when I had to write an “introduction” card
about myself for a boss that was introducing me to the section I began working
at…list your hobbies, which I summed up into MBS E)…
I am, we are, so many things. Figuring out who I am is not really of any
benefit to you, and especially not to me as I know who I am. I would like to create some Value Added and
utilize the prefix in benefit, ben, root meaning, good. It helps that my name actually is Ben I
suppose. How can my words be Good for
you? I don’t know, like maybe verbal
vitamins of a sort. My (Soul) sisters
think I should start a YouTube channel and be like a Tony Robbins motivational
type speaker. To that I say I am not
quite Feeling it. I mean I can sum up a
lot of what I would have to say in, “the answers you are looking for are
already inside you…” Then again, most
people are very focused on the external.
I can help to light a path on a new direction I suppose, but right now,
a YouTube channel is not the way to go for me.
Think, Ben, think. Better yet, Feel. I tend to do a lot better when writing from the Heart as opposed to the head. So, I want to bring out something that connects us all right here and now…our humanity. I love being a human, and I love living on this gorgeous lifeform we call Earth. Countries divide each other as do ethnicities etc. So much division and so much hate. Racism. I was Blessed to have two wonderful Souls raise me, mom and grandma, and never knew of bigotry. I was aware of it and more so as the years went on but that was something that I just couldn’t understand. My understanding of it now is that a great number are still asleep while thinking they are awake. A big difference between being awake and Awake.
This WordPress site was created as I continue to Live in the Light, and so that must be the “theme” to be expressed. As I Live in the Light, I Shine my Light out toward You…
I was reading an article not too long ago that flowed back
into my mind this morning. Human beings
are virtually 99.9% identical when it comes to our DNA. The idea of ethnic cleansing from one race
over another race is extremely sad. Especially
when we are the same. The very thing
that divides so many on our planet is the ONE thing that should be Uniting
us. We Are Human Beings. The importance of being good and kind to
others is so fundamental. If we want to
elevate the energy on this planet to a Loving state then we must elevate those
around us, and they elevate those around them, and so on and so on…
A Star Trek future is within our grasp. A United Planet, united with other planets. Too cool.
Yet…we CAN reach out to this potential future through our Will and
Desire. Who am I? I am a child of the cosmos. I am a Citizen of the Universe.
Please join me and Always look on the Bright Side 😊
