Are you a domesticated human? Routine. Living within self-made fences and boundaries?
The sad thing is that you don’t even need a real fence to keep be domesticated, you have either set these limitations yourself or allowed others to set them for you.
You know what is even worse, for many of you the fences aren’t even the main barrier to freedom. Do you work long hours at a desk or in an office environment – out of the sunlight and air? It can actually feel like you are in a cage or a box. Deprived of sunlight and movement. For many hours of the day you don’t get to breathe fresh air and your muscles are withering away. Your body is forgetting the joy of being wild. Over the generations, wildness is becoming just a lost idealism. Too many believe it can’t be regained. Not by going back to the past, but by creating a new vision for the future. The new generation enable themselves to be free.
Dream of how it would feel for the entire length of your being to be in full flight. Experiencing the movement of every muscle and fibre. Imagine what it would be like to run – not the boring methodical run of a domesticated runner. I mean, a full stride, joyous run in nature. Just running for running sake. Not for exercise, not because you think it will make you fit. Just because.
Do you feel the urge? Just run!
One thing I know for sure, you need to become more comfortable with quiet time, alone time. Just you and your thoughts. Stop trying to dampen your feelings and thoughts with mindless technology use or “busyness”. Preventing your emotions to be felt and processed is creating a beast inside you. One where the emotions and thoughts explode every so often, no longer able to be contained. Not to the outside world. The explosion occurs in your head and heart and it can feel overwhelming. The explosive emotions and thoughts are so strong, the volume so large. It is easier to pretend they don’t exist.
Time to stop pretending and ignoring. You DO feel, you DO think. You are already probably know that you need to process these thoughts and feelings. You can’t keep hiding. At some stage in your life you will come to realise that the wildness needs to be heard. You need to listen. Take the time to listen. Bringing these to the surface may be a little challenging – you may cry or get angry at all the things yet unexpressed. This is OK. It is part of the process. You may be craving peace with soft, subtle feelings and emotions – not all or nothing. At this stage you don’t have to action anything – just be prepared to listen to your wild heart. The soft and subtle will come. First you have to release the beast that has built up inside you.
