Know thy bliss, and live it.

I came back to Paris last year, after 3 years in LA. And wow I had weirdly somehow missed the French skepticism. After hating it with every fiber of my being I am starting to see the blessing in it: the thinner the door, the more focused the beam of truth that can pass through it becomes. It forces us to be impeccable in the trust in our own truth.
And of course I understand where the skepticism comes from. Who knows who can be trusted anymore, who knows what’s true what isn’t, who really knows what needs to be done to effectively make a change in the world, and limit or reverse the damage that has been done on the planet, or in our everyday lives?
Well, this is for the skeptics and the curious... I might have a perspective here that will please you: what if the answer was precisely You? What if there actually was nothing outside that could tell you what you need to believe but you, and nothing to do before first finding stillness in Your body?
This uncertainty, this fear, this desire to control what comes in and what stays out, is it truly the way we desire to live?
World update: it is not wrong. But it is also not necessary to be driven by fear, that leads to comparison, obligation, guilt, shame, and blame, not anymore. Not only regarding the damage in our world situation, but in any and every area of our lives (in truth, they are all linked).
Humans are (literally) evolving to the next stage, something of the same caliber as Enlightenment in the 18th century, and that is why you can feel it in you… I am sure you have experienced how meaningless money feels when it buys you things you can’t share with loved ones, or how unsuccessful your achievements feel when you’re feeling burnt out and a little depressed at the end of it. Bliss is the new currency, connection to your vital force and inner power to heal anything is the new currency, mastery of the art of coming back to your center and inner serenity is the new currency. That is the new wealthy. The reward has become internal. And the trust too.
That is the answer for the skeptics out there: no external gurus, no organizations, no power over, manipulation. You are the only one you can and must trust: you do have the power to do it.
