I'm still learning so bare with me but here's something I'm feeling.
I spent time being extremely "conscious". I totally blocked out as much of this present world as I could. No music, no mainstream entertainment, changed my diet, rejected the structure of this country, went back to doing things without technology, etc.
There was a time when that was necessary. .
But a whisper in my ear, maybe it was from an ancestor, said, "You're here now in the present. Pay attention to the present. Use the tools of the present in combination with the knowledge from the past. Don't forsake one for the other. Both are necessary."
So for me, a healthy balance these days looks like, respecting the old way to do things before technology and advancements came into place, while also using the ease that they bring and not forsaking the gifts.
I learned from watching movies that everything that comes across that screen is purposeful and it's all relevant info.
Similarly, life is like a movie in many ways, therefore anything that comes across my screen (my eyes) is useful and shall be of use to my bloodlines advancement. . 📸 @livefreephotography11 Clothing: @harvestgirllove
