I've been reading the GFP newsletters for a few years and never hung out here. I was born on the Mediterranean sea and lived in a few places, Japan and now the southwest of the US near LA. The picture I chose is interesting. I turned out to be a communicator in this life.
I don't follow much but learned a few things. I find peace in Dzogchen and Taoism. I find my inner guidance has worked well throughout my life. I only messed up when I felt I needed to buckle down and have a more serious job/life. I've made myself and my wife miserable for the past 15 years. I relied on my intellect and let go of my intuition. A good lesson to learn. I'm learning to retrust my inner guidance and my natural free being. It's not very easy after decades of doing the opposite. I guess I needed to see the other side of the coin, living in a lack-base and fear life. Now I know. I want out :) I also developed compassion and empathy. That's cool.
It's not as easy getting out of your way and out of what you started believing in. I'm learning how and it's tough. I am finished with my thought patterns. They no longer serve me. I'm waiting, going in, and trying to find my way back to myself. I never thought it would be such a gigantic task. Everything used to be so easy. I hope to rekindle that.
I am a curious being :) I hope to hear from other like-minded folks out there.
