How Will You Tell YOUR Story? By Aixa Garcia 7/9/17
I saw this posted on the wall of the photography area on a cruise I recently took. The words stood out to me and I had to stop and take a picture of it. It made me think… How WILL I tell my story??? …
I have many answers and none at all. I have many stories and none at all as well. Life is constantly evolving, constantly changing and one never knows what tomorrow will bring. Will “I” tell my story or will someone else tell it for me? Will it be told on its own by my daily walk, my daily actions? ~ By what has gone by and what is yet to become? We tell it every day in our own way but what we live and what we reveal may not always be the same. What we express and what is interpreted is also not the same…you see, people only show what they want to show and others only see what they believe. We are quick to judge and criticize those which we believe are walking the wrong path and others do it towards us when they see us fall or when we’re simply “not ourselves”…we’re all guilty of doing it when we don’t understand, when we don’t know the struggle, the pain, the difficulties, the tests that one may be facing. There are many reasons why we do the things we do and we act the way we act and if others only knew those reasons, then they would understand. But the story is read before it’s told, before it fully unfolds. How can one guess an ending which hasn’t arrived? Even the characters who live it may not even understand, they’re creating their own scripts as days come. Too many “judge the book by its cover”, not knowing what is inside …what surprises we all find once we begin to read, to see, to truly see and read between the lines!!! The things that ARE, are not & the things that AREN’T , are!!! (words that came to me one day) Nothing is really as it seems to be…until it becomes what it truly must be. So the story can’t be told until it’s over, until the Master writer writes “The End”.
I started writing years ago. I was urged one night, led out of bed and guided to write…I watched my hand as it flowed through the pages and words appeared. Perhaps one day I’ll finish…perhaps one day someone will finish it for me. With each new day new wisdom is found, with every struggle, new strength is found, with each new obstacle, new faith is found…Life is lived in cycles until we “get it”…it’s all a process we must go through and whether others understand our walk or not, it doesn’t matter, what matters is that we come full circle, back to where we were created with Divine knowledge ~ knowledge which we somehow distanced ourselves from, trying to write a story “our way”, rather than allowing the Master writer do His thing, HIS way … nothing we would ever write could ever be as grand as that which has already been written for us ~ it’s all a matter of positioning ourselves on the right page, becoming the ink with which the Author tells OUR story…

“Another Blank Page”    ~by Aixa Garcia 3-11-15

Another blank page sits before me, I stare at it for quite a while.

The words are there, inside of me, dying to bring themselves forth but I resist, I hold back, in fear of what may be said. You see, I say tooo much sometimes, I share my heart, my thoughts, my gifts but they are not always understood. Though many confirm their helpfulness and how they have been touched in one way or another…others resist, afraid of the truth, afraid to feel, afraid to see within themselves. But even “I” resist what they may reveal…so much has already been said and sometimes I just don’t want to know. But the urge inside is much greater than me and eventually I have to give in. What is it that wants to be said? What is it that needs to be shared? If I hold back, it pains me with the thought of rejecting my gifts. But if I share, my heart is open, in the hands of the one who receives…or resists. I try to separate myself, the “human” self from feelings and emotions but it’s often difficult to do…as FEELING is part of how I receive…you see, I have a gift that Feels things, that goes deep within one’s soul, I can feel the pain in others, though they hide it behind a smile. I feel the doubt, the struggle, the pain that dwells in them deep. Maybe I feel too much but it’s part of who I am. How else could I help another? Is it so wrong to feel? To care? To give ones heart so deeply? Maybe I ask too much, maybe I expect even more. But how does one hold back from something that is in essence, out of our control? We are all here for a reason, with a purpose and a mission to fulfill. I am currently walking my journey and still learning along the way. I fall often as the path isn’t always clear but Divinity picks me up and guides me along the way. I struggle as others do and fight against adversity because we very well know…where there’s a purpose, there will always be adversity. My heart has oftentimes been broken, my world shaken but my Spirit cannot be touched…though it has tried to be, I am protected by a Force much greater than any of us. And I am always reminded to never give up, no matter what! ~ to keep on fighting, keep on believing, to keep on loving. It doesn’t matter whether our gifts are accepted, received, or understood, it only matters that we follow that Guidance that shows us what to do, then wait for Divinity to do the rest…eventually, it will ALL be understood, it will all be accepted as truth. Don’t ever reject the gifts that you have been given, it is better to do as instructed and fulfill the mission, the purpose for which we are here for, than to reject them and someone else be hurt because of it.

I feel soooo much inside and have so much to share, though I try to resist, I can’t…I am always guided to go on, no matter what. I was recently given new insight, new hope, new strength to go on and I vowed not to allow anything to ever bring me back to a place of doubt a place of darkness…the walk is not always easy but I can’t give up & neither should you…so please follow your heart, no matter what, follow that guidance, no matter what, use your gifts & talents, no matter what & don’t ever, ever give up, no matter what!!!
