0 days: Track Eight: Fire-lights

Where do we go from here? UP

8. Fire-lights

As you move up the levels the human animal side of you will try to keep you on the ground as much as it can. It is an in-bulit mechanism within the human self as strong as "denial".

It does this because the animal side of us just wants to eat and pro create. This is what you are fighting. Survival instinct.

But you are not here to survive in a literal sense because your body WILL die. Your energy is wasted by living in this way. This is the human condition. We are all born spiraling out of control because we all know we will one day die.

What makes this worse is that when things start happening in good ways for us it brings out all of our short comings which in turn will lead us back to where we started.

Fire-lights is about the final letting go of fear and believing in destiny, love and LIFE.

Step 8: This one took me my whole life to realise and I had tears in my eyes when I heard it reiterated back to me from another source. If you are going to take ONE thing from "the portrait diaries" or my work in general the following line is as great a one as I shall ever speak:

"The true opposite of fear is faith"

You are an inspiration, creatively and spiritually. I love that quote at the end of your post. I will put that on my wall.
