Box of Goals & Hopes – Undiscovered Latent Treasures
‘All interactions transform the brain – but most vital are the personal bonds that foster or are unsuccessful us, altering the sensitive circuits that condition recollections, feelings and that supreme souvenir, the self.’ – Diane Ackerman
Most of my lifestyle is expended ‘collecting’ what I deem valuable.
Gollum (Sméagol), just 1 of the fantastic characters from Lord of the Rings, taught us about the price of what we maintain on to and what we give up in exchange.
In my ‘chest’ of wondrous issues there are tales interwoven that make it possible for a modest glimpse of locations I’ve been and fellow ‘travellers’ I have experienced the honour and privilege of crossing paths.
Some of these products are not material whilst they have an obscure form, shape-shifting in my thoughts, continually educating me about their genuine really worth.

When I started remedy a couple of many years back, it was unclear what I was embarking on.
30-8 decades expended in a falsely wonderful incubator. Certainly, I was supplied for in many ways and on the surface area, it could be simplified as the ‘American Dream’. This sort of a nifty ‘possessive’, much better identified as an illusion.
Trauma was an everyday reality, and somehow I couldn’t have an understanding of or recognise how considerably taken off I was from the ‘average’ household. In hindsight, I follow gratitude as it is my only salvation.
Deep reflection on daily life I so despised and the resentments that had crafted up with the folks I was contracted to adore undyingly was now in need to have of remaining reassessed.
Reliving out a fraction of my residual, fractured reflections, wherever I would reenact as the same core spirit an alien ghost explorer, in an unfamiliar long term moi, from a thoughtful, observant vantage place. Lucid dreaming wherever I am the lead actor and director coaching my wounded self by means of a tender system of forgiveness.

Even within just the ‘average’ house persons experience in their ways. Wealth or absence thereof does not denote what quite a few or most of us experience in the framework we contact ‘human’.
Most of the time we are mindlessly scrambling to comply with a path of breadcrumbs. We did not bake the bread. We do not understand yeast.
Life, in particular one particular that would seem out of whack for the the vast majority of us, can make exciting behavioural designs. I do not want to direct a effectively-rehearsed lifetime. If you go to church on Sunday, be guaranteed it is simply because of extra than an old standard practice.
I do not want to come across harsh or crucial. That would undoubtedly deliver prolonged agony in my soul. This ‘box’ that hold important scraps will not indicate the similar matter when you leave. It will develop into a new tale with a reintroduced awe.
Yet another tale with no beginning or end that can be documented without the need of fascination or creativity.
There is nothing very like likely by way of a image album, report assortment, outdated letters submitted away in your head, an archive of dusty crates exactly where unacknowledged spirits scamper.
Have we awakened or do we slumber somewhere over and above bodily geography?
Does that portion of us even know what it is we are suffering from on this conclusion?
