I see life in two forms – external and internal. We all know the external; experiences, choices, actions, activities and achievements build what we believe is true life. In reality, true life is internal. What is within creates what is outside. Our relationship with our souls, our thoughts and our visions truly shape what is external.

When we sit with ourselves, alone and free from external hustle, we can deeply feel. There’s a certain harmonious peace that comes with just being. And to the external world, just being seems “small” and “unimportant”. It is truly all that is important. Society distracts us and keeps us at a lower vibration for a reason. When we let go and align with who we truly are, our power goes way beyond what society can control. Internal freedom is limitless and in a world obsessed with labels and limits, a deep connection to your soul teaches you to authentically be.

External life is a blurred vision we make less and less blurry by the way we live our internal life. In each moment we nurture our souls and communicate with the Universe inside, we find the distinct through the hazy – we create our vision. I love the moments that to the external world look “boring” or “unproductive”, but to my internal world are the most meaningful. When I have long, free and deep conversations with my internal Universe I feel most at home. And the best part is: I can have those connections and internal adventures whenever I choose. Even in the busiest of external moments, I can find clarity. I can step back and b r e a t h e. I can look within and live. I can just be.

I think life is way beyond what we experience, life is who we are and how we live. So, here’s to truly living! I wish you many moments today that let you feel the tingling in your fingers, the rhythm of your heart and the song of your breath. Love authentically, dream freely, listen consciously, speak fearlessly and most of all, just be. -Ace

    Oh, my dearest Ace, this post has touched me so deeply this morning; watering eyes here, and a warmed heart. Your light shines through your words with such an intensity. I can see it clearly. Your words are so accurate. Everything lives within, the external is merely a collection of names and forms, which we are socizlied to understand; and (re)understanding who we truly are, which is always there and always present, even when we are disconnected, is a beauty that escapes human language. It is, as you write, in the breathing, the silence, the quientness, the stilness….that is life. I love this post, and feel more alive after reading it and taking it into my heart. Have a lovely day, my dearest friend! β€πŸ€—β€

    “life is who we are and how we live” dearest ace, can i give you an award for being a great philosopher already? i love this post so much, like AMAZING. ironically, i have been wondering about this for so long. and i have reached the conclusion that whatever comes, let it come, let life happen to you, and rise above it. just be, face the music and take action. nobody knows you and your powers better than you.
    “Love authentically, dream freely, listen consciously, speak fearlessly and most of all, just be.” my favorite lines, these might as well become my life motto. ❀

    Oh my dearest Ace….where should I begin…I resonate like crazy much with your profound writing….”In reality, true life is internal. What is within creates what is outside. Our relationship with our souls, our thoughts and our visions truly shape what is external.”….this is going in Ace says….or perhaps, the whole post πŸ˜‰….coz oh my, every single word is speaking to me from the deep….this is is exactly what I’ve been realizing these days, what you’ve already realized….I’m able to find clarity & peace when I look within….even though the external moments are trying to project a different image on my curved screen….but when I’m connected to me, that image dissolves magically….thank you very much for your sharing….they aren’t just some thoughts….it’s wisdom πŸ€—πŸ–€βœ¨πŸ€πŸ’«πŸŒŸ
