Acceptance – Excerpt from Awaken With Gratitude

Hillis_Pugh_acceptanceBe thankful this day for acceptance.
We live in a world created with some form of illusion. By this I mean people create a mental image of a subject, item, place or an idea with a certain levels of expectancy. It’s this level of expectancy that creates the illusion. We as humans expect a certain level of life or create an illusion of certain levels of life from society’s definition. When all that is around you, when all that you see is created through levels of expectancy nothing reigns true. Some people live lies to hide the true self, other people just plain hide from themselves and the truth. People around us create the level of expectancy, then we feel we have to live up to the illusion they created for us.

Once we acknowledge the illusion that stems from fear and disappointing others, we break free from the hold it has placed on us. We no longer live up to someone else’s level of expectancy, but we now live of our truth. When we finally come into acceptance, we acknowledge ourselves for who we are as human beings in this world. Then everyone else will acceptance us for who we are without illusion.

Be thankful this day and everyday for your own personal truth.

Be thankful this day and everyday for what you believe extends into the energy you create.

Be thankful this day and everyday to manifest your truth and accept your worth as a human being.

Outside My Mirror

Stepping into a world of reflections

Different people

Different moods

Different attitudes

All consumed with the currency of beauty


What do you see

Can you see the sheer transparent thought image of self reflected in society or are we society’s creation

A celebrity status among the not so famous the virtual unknown


Aware of your existence could careless of the image portrayed

Let me remove the blindfold

Image is all that matters do you see what the world sees or what you see

What are you

Who are you

Living by someone else’s standards

Something obtained by what means there only to shed a stream of tears caught by a smile


Are you fresh young new

Covering up the comfortable image of true self

Why be ashamed

Be proud

Be honest

Be you


Stepping out the reflected world and shatter the glass of the past cause we all want the same thing

How do you feel

Do you know what you feel in this new reality of realization


The flow of you the cause of you to pause to conjure the cure of pure self twisted in elegance of divine creation

Shone through unconscious manifestation

Looking out to see in

Looking pass the familiar recognizing a deeper true renewed self outside the mirror
