[1: 2,060 of 10,000] Brutal Honesty

I’m reaching the old age of brutal honesty. The desire of not going in for a small talk but drive right in with what our soul is longing to discuss, real experience that truly matters to us, no lies, no fake-ness. I do worry a little that when I show up brash that I’ll be seen as a lunatic, impolite, out of this world.

I am conscious that whenever I enter into a conversation that I remain honest, I will never say I want this if I don’t or that’s gorgeous if it’s not, but I’m torn on the part to say it’s not my taste because I don’t like to hurt someone’s feelings. I was in that situation several times and I’ve felt people got bruised and I do kind of question the lines, “If you have nothing nice to say, be silent” and then I would rather go to the lane of “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. I’m finding the balance of saying what’s my feelings but in a compassionate delivery because after all we are in our own journey. What I see useless and reckless is a journey that someone needs to discover of their own and it’s not like I got life figured out.

Where is this all coming from? I got triggered that I’m foreseen as weak when I was practicing my sage-ness, and I need to look at myself and my dichotomy to the existence of others who I am choosing to be part of my life. It was such a clear revelation that I’m freeing myself from any form of attachment because I would always choose myself, what makes me whole and the world will align to my vibration. It’s really fascinating to witness it play.

One thing I’m sure of though, I’m quite peaceful to where I am. I don’t have the drama that most of my age worry about. I’m grateful for that and I also have the inner knowing that it’s because I am meant to do more than I can imagine, to make new adventure to happen, new way of thinking and operating in this rebirthing world.

Human and Robots

I had a blog at Quora and somebody left a comment. I’m not quite sure what he meant but I think he was kind of implying that it is my own opinion and I know nothing about Rumi.

I never claimed that I know anything about Rumi. I was blatantly clear that the blog post is indeed my own opinion. And as far as I can grasp, his comment against my post is entirely different from my real message. I think he wants me to believe that I am talking nonsense and I just couldn’t bring myself to reply nor delete his point of view.

It does makes me think if he has a point, so far I just couldn’t see his real objective for making the comment. Somehow, what I am sensing instead is his persona that he’s better than me. I couldn’t make assumptions and I couldn’t take anything personally so I will let his comment stays there but he won’t get any reply from me.

Does it bother me? The whole point that I am posting a blog post about it doesn’t really mean I am mad. It’s a learning curve to write and hear people not to really rave about it, it’s part of life, but I won’t let him rob my joy.

I’m too beautiful to wrinkle my nose and my forehead for a comment. I’m sharing because I wanted to grow, to explore what is out there, and that I know in my heart that I can look pass the snotty comment and still appreciate the person behind it who is willing to voice out his opinion.

Voltaire said, “I may not agree to what you say, but I will defend to death your right to say it.” We all have a voice and might as well use it.

“Silence will never be misquoted,” I saw that lesson and from this point onward I am going to live by that.

Ivanka’s advice about writing email or I think that can be used in any situation before expressing thoughts, “I don’t write anything in an email that I wouldn’t be comfortable reading on the front page of the New York Times.”

It’s good to be responsible.
