Why die young?

Stay Connect

I hear your voice, I hear your desperation, I hear your longing, I hear your heart… Your beating heart. Screaming with every beat.
Even if the beating has gone numb. Even if all desperation has died into despair and carelessness…
But I still hear you. I hear you. And I care.

Yes, I know you’re trying to pretend that nobody sees you, but if you only knew how we’re all connected, you’d know that there’s nowhere to hide.

I even see that deep down inside of you there’s a smile hidden underneath your seriousness. A curiosity underneath the dullness. An aliveness under the appearance of death. Why hide? You can still be different. You don’t have to buy into what everyone else believes in. You can still do it your own way.
Just stay and connect.

Screaming for change isn’t everyone’s path. Silently withdrawing is saying just as much. It’s just as loud. Believe me, I know.

This world might not be what you want it to be. It might not be what you’ve dreamt of.
Yet…
You might not see it yet. Especially not if you give up.
Without you, this world you feel and see in your heart is even further away.
So hold on…
Hold on because one day you’ll see a way to contribute.
One day you’ll meet more people like yourself.
One day you’ll discover you’re far from alone.

All you precious souls out there, silently and resentfully waiting for a new tomorrow… Look beyond your limits. Reach out a little further. Get to know someone new. Reach out to reach in. Connect out to connect in. Or connect in to connect out. Either way. Connect and stay.

And know.
One day.
When you’ve reached bottom, when you’ve seen enough darkness, you’ll come to a place of peace and find joy in sharing, participating and playing again.

So now, stay.
Start today as if there’s a whole new world out there. Begin today in a brand new way.

Stay.

Loving you limitlessly, endlessly and unconditionally,
Jenny Lane

Friday: Cheers to Contribution!

It’s Friday night and I’m home alone feeling delighted and filled with an immense gratitude and happiness. I’ve felt a calmness and happiness residing within for a while, but not like this. Now there’s an added element to it. And the added element is that I’ve finally found what I’ve spent decades searching for. Yes, I’m not that old, however I’ve been looking for my true calling, my deepest contribution to this world for many, many years. And with sharing this blog and book – however small – I find myself aligning to something deep within that overflows my whole being with gratitude, relief and blessings. What a gift, what an immense joy. This particular journey is just in its beginnings, but the journey it took to get here has been filled with many moments of sadness, desperation, deep longing, pain, suffering, helplessness and really, really hard work. And so to finally arrive at this tiny little threshold, feels like arriving at the finish line with a gold medal. It’s as if a beginning and an end has merged into one. And even though I have no medal to hold high, no object that prove my achievements, it still feels like I do – it’s just not visible to you yet. But I feel it. And I know it’ll manifest in one form or another that’ll give us plenty of excuses for sharing and celebrating blissful moments if we feel we need reasons to justify celebrating life. For now though, I’m quietly celebrating alone in the most precious way I know. There is no better proof of happiness to me than being able to thoroughly feel completely blissed out in solitude. And now I even get to share that! What a beautiful day. What a gorgeous life. What a wonderful world! Isn’t the boost of a new beginning the most beautiful thing in the world? Cheers to it being Friday and cheers to the life-giving energies of New Beginnings!

Sending and wishing you lots of happiness, bliss and joy for your day and your life.

From Imperfection to Sharing

 “It’s in my imperfection that I’m perfect for the assignment”
Lisa Nichols

I’ve just come home from this amazing event seminar called Awesomeness Fest and taken a pledge to share who I am with the talents I’ve got right NOW. I’m writing a novel and have decided to be open about the process and receive feedback along the way if someone wishes to participate and share. So here’s the beginning of this sharing. A humble, unapologetic beginning of something that I don’t know where is going to take me. Maybe just a few friends will read this, maybe many. All I know is that in order to stay true to what I know to do in this moment, I need to take this first step – just because it’s what I know to do regardless of the outcome.

In these first steps something is already happening by simply breaking through a barrier of perfectionism. These first steps have already had the effect of opening up something in me that is yearning for more participation and contribution even though it’s triggering negative thought patterns. By taking these very tiny little steps, this journey is already starting to shape me as a human being. It’s breaking through bits and pieces of old patterns to reveal more of who I am to myself and the world. It’s not by the results that we grow, it’s through the process.

I would be more than grateful if you want to join me in this journey and share what moves you. So let’s break out and not hold anything back anymore. Let’s rejoice in our imperfection and hold hands through it all – just because it connects us. Just because it’s who we are as humans. Just because it makes life so much more meaningful.

Love, Peace and Joy!
