For most of my life, I felt this big presence that is watching me and the world around me.
Since I’ve met Me in a more intimate fashion, I’ve realised I have my own internal life map of energy for moving around space, time, and connecting with other human beings.
The feeling can be translated into an image that is simple—it reminded me of a compass. It looks like this:
I’ve got fear in the cold North.
I fear almost everything.
Fear directs my ship to the next harbour.
Almost every day I enter a new harbour.
Sometimes I go back to visit some old harbours that I’ve already seen.
Other times I spend a couple of nights in the same harbour. That’s usually when I’m full of cargo.
Fear in the North is my closest point to God himself.
I’m so fucking small in the North.
Jealousy, envy, thieves, and killers of me live their silent lives up there.
It’s the most lonely place on Earth where your only friend is God.
Down under, in the hot and spicy South lies my excitement.
Completely opposite to the North, this is my engine.
If I come to the end of one fear, that means I’m at the beginning of South and excitement.
It drives me, moves me like a force of nature.
South is also representing Earth and my body.
There’s a direct correlation between North and South.
I’m moving on a line between God and Earth every day.
Too much God can blow me away from the ground.
Too much Earth can cut me off my core trust in life.
East stands for pain. When I’m there, I know I’m on the way to start loving and taking care of myself again.
There are places like Port d’Anger, Shameland, Guiltbraltar, and Sadness City.
I sometimes feel like a dead man while being on East.
But there’s no way to escape this cycles.
When I’m in the East, I know I’m on the route to self-discovery.
Love and joy are living in the West side of my inner compass.
This land recharges me and puts me back in a childlike state of the journey.
From this place, I feel confidence and possibilities.
People and relationships in my life are travelling this line between my East and West.
I drink wine and eat almost everything in the West.
I write somewhere in the North-East.
I meet my father in the North-West.
I love in the West.
I hate in the North.
But I live in the South-West.
