So I am out-of-town right now, in a situation that I have absolutely no control over. I am merely here for support of another who is going through a challenge in life that could very well change the direction that the soul will take. I have been a little uneasy, going through all the emotions, anger, annoyance, disgust, judgement.
All the emotions that make you feel yucky inside, the ones that weigh you down.
I resent the fact that others have been put into this mess because of another ones choices. There are around 6 people who are having to deal with the fallout of another’s choice. What a good lesson for all here….
How many times have we done something not knowing how it will affect another until it is too late?That we made a choice that was selfish and in the end did not turn out well?
How many times have I myself made a judgement call about my life and went off by myself thinking that I was doing the right thing and made a huge mess out of it because I did not have Spirit involved at all. I was running amok…
We all do this, we all create drama in our lives, my teacher used to say”If we can’t be special in our daily lives we will be special in our suffering”
In comes this song and the lyrics that I woke up to today:
“I need another story, Something to get off my chest, My life gets kinda boring, Need something that I can confess,Til’ all my sleeves are stained red, From all the truth that I’ve said, Come by it honestly I swear ,Thought you saw wink, no I’ve been on the brink, so tell me what you want from here, Something that were like those year,s Sick of all the insincere, So I’m gonna give all my secrets away, This time, don’t need another perfect line, Don’t care if critics never jump in line, I’m gonna give all my secrets away
My god, amazing how we got this far, It’s like we’re chasing all those stars, Who’s driving shiny big cars ,And everyday I see the news, All the problems that we could solve, And when a situation rises ,Just write it into an album, Singing straight, too cold I don’t really like my flow, no, so
Tell me what you want from here, Something that were like those years, Sick of all the insincere, So I’m gonna give all my secrets away This time, don’t need another perfect line, Don’t care if critics never jump in line, I’m gonna give all my secrets away
Oh, got no reason, got not shame, Got no family I can blame, Just don’t let me disappear, I’m tell you everything
So tell me what you want from here, Something that were like those years, Sick of all the insincere, So I’m gonna give all my secrets away This time, don’t need another perfect line Don’t care if critics never jump in line I’m gonna give all my secrets away
So tell me what you want from here Something that were like those years Sick of all the insincere So I’m gonna give all my secrets away, This time, don’t need another perfect line, Don’t care if critics never jump in line, I’m gonna give all my secrets away, All my secrets away, All my secrets away
There was a comment at the bottom of the page(gingen) that I thought summed this up quite nicely:
It sounds like the person singing is feeling a lot of pressure to tell some juicy story that will have everyone talking about him so that he can be in the spotlight again.
“I need another story, something to get off my chest. My life gets kind of boring, need something that I can confess.”
However, he doesn’t have an exciting story about a troubled family life or a dark, shameful past; the kind of stories that people love to gossip about.
“Got no reason, got no shame, got no family I can blame.”
The first time I listened to the song, I thought he had become so desperate that he had decided to just make up some story or do something dangerous that would attract a lot of attention. But the chorus convinces me that that’s not the case.
“Sick of all the insincere… This time, I don’t need another perfect line. I don’t care if critics never jump in line.”
It sounds like he realizes that if he did that he would get a lot of attention, but he personally feels like it’s not worth it. He’s doing what he is just because he loves doing it, not because he wants fame and attention. He’s realized that he doesn’t care about shocking everyone with the perfect, story; he’s sick of everyone working so hard to get attention that way and he wishes that people weren’t so shallow and insincere.
Finally, I hear a plea for people to pay attention to him for the right reasons – his music, his personality, his dedication to what he does – even though he doesn’t have an ‘exciting’ life that would be on all the magazine covers. He’s going to be honest and show us who he really is, and he hopes people will appreciate that.
“Just don’t let me disappear. I’m gonna tell you everything… I’m gonna give all my secrets away.”
This is how I am feeling this morning, I want to be something spectacular, I want to change the world, I want my life to make a difference but I do not need to have an exciting life by control, drama or creating chaos.
I can create an exciting world by doing things that are inline with my integrity, what my higher self wants.
So this situation that I am in as an observer, I can have compassion and forgiveness for.
I have been where these people are.
I have made poor decisions and bad judgement calls, but I forgive myself because I didn’t know better at the time.
So to myself I say” Please forgive me for anyway that I have affected you negatively, this was not my intent. I want to show love and forgiveness in all situations and even thou it sometimes takes me to think about it, I eventually get there, I am sorry for all the times I have judged you harshly, belittled you, crushed your dreams and thought you were worthless and unlovable. I love you and I thank you for the life that I have, you are beautiful, you have a beautiful spirit and all thou others have tried to squash it, it remains a constant light for you and others to see. God put you here to shine, and you can shine with your own light not the fake light of EGO drama.Just keep putting yourself on the path and you will serve the purpose that God has ment for you all along”
Always tell the truth because your secrets and lies will always find you out, they are based on sand and truth is based on rock…..Choose what you build, your life affects another, choose wisley……..xoxo
