Why You Are AWESOME!

Awesome!  Awesomeness!  You are Awesome! 

I love that word.  I guess it might have something to do with growing up in the 80’s, where  it seemed to become very popular, but for me it has stuck. I’ve recently been accused of using it too much and that’s what has spurred me on to write about it!  I use it for several reasons:   one is because “good” seems to be the new okay and okay the new not so good, but the main reason is it’s the absolute truth.

Definition: awe-some  [aw-suh]  adjective 1. inspiring awe: an awesome sight.

We are ALL an awesome sight! We  ALL come from inspiration, which means: in – spirit.  We have labeled ourselves as humans, but that’s really not what we are.  We are spiritual beings having a human experience.  It’s the same with our names:  we are not our names, they really are just our personal labels and  given to us by people we just met.  We are truly awesome, but most of us forget that fact, so I like to remind people as much as possible of what you really are. My hope is that if you hear it enough you might just start believing you really are awesome.

All growth and positive change happens through some kind of  positive reinforcement.  Nature does a great job on her own.  It’s us “humans” that need it the most.  So, please  everyone, you are truly AWESOME.  Believe it, it’s the truth, keep telling yourself  often and one day, all you will see is Awesomeness every where you look!

Just remember all words are not the thing itself (example: The word orange is not the color or fruit) Words are just signs that point to what something is.  It’s the energy we put behind the words we say that matter.  You know the saying… It’s not what you say, but how you say it that matters and what matters most is the talking that is going on between your two ears. So what anyone say’s to you, is really for them to deal with, what you say to and about yourself to yourself is what counts!

Our most effective way to live an Awesome life,  is simply to observe our inner talk, let it be, and focus on something that makes us happy.  Why not focus on being AWESOME?


Who’s blocking me to be one with my Lover?

SHE is so beautiful that once you see her, you won’t look at anyone else!

HER voice is so sweet and melodious that once you listen to her, you won’t hear anything else!

SHE is so sweet smelling that once you feel her fragrance, you will be unable to smell another!

SHE is so sweet in taste that once you taste her, you won’t taste anything else!

SHE is so soft and tender that once you touch her, you won’t let her go!

So Felt I, and I went after her..

I LOVE HER so much and SHE LOVES ME too

Our LOVE is deepest in depth and broadest in breadth

Our LOVE is strongest in strength and the softest of soft

I want to be one with her and SHE wants to be one with me!

Then you may ask “who’s blocking you??”

I asked this question to myself, 1001 times.

And I got the same answer “It is ME and ONLY ME, who’s blocking me”!

It is my MIND, my EGO that doesn’t let me reach HER!

Then you may ask “Who can help you reaching her?”

I asked this question to myself, 1001 times.

And I got the same answer “It is ME and ONLY ME, who can help me!”

It is the ME within me, who can guide me to reach HER!

Then you may ask “What is blocking you, if you know the YOU within YOU can help you?”

I asked this question 1001 times, but this time, and still as of yet to get an answer!

Here I go, meditating upon myself to find the answer…

In the mean time, If you get the answer to my question, please do lemme know.

I love you,  Donna Lynne

ego!… Energy Gone Obscene! Part II

ego! Part I was all about the what and the why of the ego we all have. Part II is how to live and play nice with IT! 

The first step in playing nice with our egos is realizing it is part of us, but not us.  Ego is not who or what we are!  Truly we are Spiritual beings living a human experience and only have forgotten that fact, because the ego we acquired has hidden it from us. Hiding our true selves from us is the ego’s main mission and once that is realized it will start losing its grip and slowly fade into the background.

The trick or secret to making the ego fade away is the consistency of being aware as soon as possible when it acts up, which it does a lot and very subtly sometimes.  Luckily, we all come with  a PGS –  Personal Guidance System –  built in… our emotions’ feelings. Sometimes the guidance is a pleasant reminder to check your course and other times it will punch you in the face to let you know you are not on the right course.  This is where consistency plays a big role in keeping you from getting punched. You just have to be aware early enough of the pleasant reminders and adjust your attitude  immediately to prevent from getting to far out of whack or punched!  Anytime you are not feeling some form of love of yourself or anyone else, that is ego… Also having a negative thought is the ego and this is where it’s most effective to catch it before it gets out of hand.

When a negative thought suddenly appears in your head, just being  aware of it and knowing  it’s not you, but the  phantom self talking, weakens it.  The ego only has power when you believe you are the cause of  the thoughts. When we don’t blame ourselves for the negative thoughts we are having and then combine that with not blaming anyone else for what they are saying  to us, life becomes enjoyable to live. Now I know what you are thinking, if no one is to blame, then who is responsible?  We are all in a way responsible. There are consequences for all our our actions.  But it is only our own actions for which we are responsible.

What anyone else says or does is theirs to deal with, not ours to take personally, and better not to.  Negativity from anybody is purely a reflection of what’s going on in side of them. If they knew how not to be negative, they wouldn’t be!

We all have our own lives to live and the best thing we can all do, to live it well, is to consistently become aware of what the ego is saying to us, smile at it, let it be and re-focus on something that we feel good about.  

ego… Energy Gone Obscene! Part I

ego! It’s the biggest part of us all that is the cause of the life we are living and yet, for most of us, we know very little about what ego is!  Now,  I am not talking about what most of us call ego, that proud part of us that boasts.   Yes, that is ego, but just a smidgen of what the real ego is!  What I’m referring to is this phantom  persona we started acquiring around the age of two.

Around that time we started to stop realizing who/what we really are!  We were being told, “No, you can’t do what makes you happy anymore, like being curious and playing with everything you can get your hands on.” I understand some of that is required for our safety, outlets, cleaners, stake knives, etc. But for the first time in our new lives we were being scolded and didn’t know why.

I can’t remember exactly what I was thinking when I was two, but I bet it was something like…why are these giants who were so nice to me, giving me food and whipping my butt when demanded, now yelling at me, causing me to have this weird feeling I’ve never felt before, which was fear. That is when the phantom self appeared. We were told you are bad, you are now good, you must listen to me and do as I say,  it doesn’t matter if you like it or not this is your role. I am mother, father, brother, sister, friend, teacher, etc. and you are little and don’t know what you are doing.  We will let you know who you are, we will help create the phantom self/ego, because that is what was done for us.

No reason to blame anyone, because they would have to then blame everyone that contributed to their ego and on and on… it is what it is and if anyone knew how to not make mistakes, they would never make a mistake.  It’s all just a part of this Life we are living. That’s the foundation to overcoming the ego. The ego is what it is, but don’t feed it any energy by believing what it is saying. Just observe the odd, sometimes scary and  negative ego self talk, sometimes known as thinking. Just by being aware that this negative talk isn’t really you, but this made up ego, takes power away from it and is the beginning of overcoming the grip of the phantom self-ego!  What I call Energy Gone Obscene.

Love Found!… Unexpectedly in an Unexpected Place

This is the first of perhaps many… as it has recently occurred to me, that  it seems, I have a lot to say and figured I should expand beyond the 140 of  Twitter. Ahh! Twitter, the thing, I thought, was ridiculous just two months ago, now occupies 14hrs of my day and that’s not the biggest impact it has had on my life… I have found Love!  Real love,  from all who tweet with me and even romantically.

I didn’t realize that was even possible until I was living and being it!  I mean love is all there is.   Without it,  we would not be here on this blue marble.  I understand that fact and that fact is awesome!  But, realizing what true love really is,  for the first time in 42 years of  life… is amazing!

We have all heard the cliche:   when you least expect love  is when you’ll find it.  I always thought… yeah, that’s a great way  to sell a lot of  books and movies, but it doesn’t seem to happen in the real world.  Now, here I am, the reformed love cynic  telling  you all about  how it really does happen. I know now the key to the cliche is to really let go of your expectations, which works for everything in life, not just love. I have read about “letting go” in tons of books, even tweeted about it many times, but until you are living it you really don’t know it!  To really know anything you have to live it and I am living proof that LOVE can be found in the most unlikely of places… even Twitter.
