Are you able to stand on your hands or heads? Maybe that’s the only way to see a different perspective, maybe not. My latest entry is here.
Inflatable toys on a string in a park in Europe. What better way to entice a child to buy something? It has been a decade since this image was taken therefore it is befitting to turn it into a monochrome image.
I guess following on from yesterday; we are continuing the theme of hanging out in a dark/ noir environment of our own inner world.
But actually, what if, in that inner world, we tried to find some colour, find some inner joy, some window to the world where the sun is shining?
How many of you were willing to visit the darker side of you?
Having looked at the stats on the blog entry, not many people were willing, so I guess the topic of darkness is still tabu amid the human race.
It is interesting to speak about the dark. It is one thing that always frightened us. As a species, we have always sought the light, because it meant that we can survive, we can fend off predators better, we can find out food easier, we were safe.
In the history of humanity, any period that was gruesome was classed as a dark age. So, I guess why would you hang out in those places if, by its very description, our survival may be at stake? Well, for that you may want to go back one day and read the entry.
Today we hang out in the world as if we have no care in the world, as we try to suppress, or try not to remember anything that was darker in our past, and we want to only remember the colourful happy places we have within.
As I am writing this entry, I am wondering how many people do hang out on the internet so they don’t have to face reality?
I wonder how many of you continue to hang out on those platforms, where one episode of a show just rolls into the next?
I wonder how much time you spend playing a game console, to the detriment of being outside and enjoying nature?
I guess if you are reading these entries, perhaps you are happy to hang out on your own, with your thoughts, and perhaps you sometimes look forward to a bit of introspection.
Last week I was observing someone doing everything they could to avoid facing their reality. The tablet was out; they were watching cat videos, followed by catching up on the sports scores, followed by a series on a platform, followed by going for a nap, and all the while I was watching something about symbols in the world that keep on showing up time and time again across the ages. I was musing to myself how different human beings can be, sharing the same space and yet one being introspective about the world; whilst the other being content with its superficiality. Where do you hang out?

As you can see from the image, we are back in Barcelona, Spain.
Today, when I was looking for an image, this particular one spoke to me. The title came easily for this post –”Front seat”.
Today, I want you to take the front seat in what is called your life.
I would like you not only to take the front seat, but I would like to invite you to step into the driving seat of your life.
I would like you to take the steering wheel, put your hand on the 9 o’clock and three o’clock position, hold on and step on the brake pedal.
I want you to hit the brake, so that you take the time to breathe.
Take the time to breathe and contemplate the world around you, for this is the day you may see it all change.
If you have decided to tune in today, I invite you to make a change in your own life.
It does not have to be a big change; but I would invite you to change something that you have been putting off for some time, and today you are ready to do it. It could be that you do the washing up, instead of putting off to tomorrow. Iit may be that you change the sheets on your bed you forgot to change for the past few weeks. Maybe you take a shower for the first time in days.
The change is what you make of it, but do it with intention.
Being in the front seat of your life may feel strange.
Being in charge of the steering wheel of your life may feel even stranger, and it may feel out of place. Hitting the break in a time when it feels like we have been sliding along at a snail’s pace may feel counterintuitive, and yet, without taking a break, looking and facing our reality, we will never implement a change.
Despite the whole world having come to a grinding halt, there are those of you who continue to ignore your true selves.
You choose one of those monthly paid movie subscriptions; binge on news and ignore the here and now. And instead of living your life, you live that which is someone else’s, based on what others expect of you. Perhaps you react as you have always reacted and ignore the fact that what you have been getting in the past is what you continue to get today.
There is only one seat available for your life; and you need to be in it to win it.
Nobody can sit in that seat and try to steer you in a direction. You are the only one who can lead the ship to where it needs to be. Some people may think they can lead you, but unless you give away your choice and allow the ship to steer itself, no other human on the planet can make you do anything. The anger you felt yesterday, it was all you. The sadness you felt within, it is you. The happiness you crave for so much is within you, you just have to shift the view.
Instead of staring aimlessly in the distance, refocus your attention.
Instead of blaming the tool, the environment, the circumstances, take back control of the reaction and respond.
The seat is available; it is free; it is waiting for its master. All you have to do is sit down and drive.
Are you up to the challenge?
