Love Is: Starring In Your Own Movie By Nick Ralls

I have alot to say about this piece, however since it is long and I will comment on it from my point of view tomorrow. I hope you enjoy it.

Love Is: Starring In Your Own Movie
By
Nick Ralls

I star in my own life movie... I choose the character I wish to play.. the actors who share the adventure.. and the location for this drama. But I am determined not to be caught up in the dramas of others because this merely drains my energy and makes my life unfulfilled.

DO you want to be the star of your own movie?
Or do you want a part in someone else's.
This is the burning question of our lives.... are we writing our own script...are we determining our own locations... are we writing in our fellow actors..
Or.... are we being dragged into the dramas of others...being swept away on the paths of others, never to feel we are fulfilling our destiny?
LOVE IS... running our life the way we wish it to be.
LOVE is not feeling guilty or manipulated to play the tune of others.
Yet, so often in this life of ours we sacrifice our own dreams, our own aspirations and our own love to merely fit in with and play second fiddle to those who want us to play the game their way.
Why choose to play a part in the life of an energy vampire, control freak or someone who sees us as a possesion?
First of all, we are the director and actor of our own life story.. there can be no other way to live a life that works.
So just what is the story line? Decide now. Where do you want your life to take you, what do you want to see happen and what sort of people do you want in your play.
What location do you choose?
And what sort of character do you want to play? Do you want to play the role of victim? Do you want to play the role of someone unfulfilled, frustrated or lonely or someone who fails at their relationships?
Or rather would you prefer to be the star... the hero or heroine... the person with love in their heart who makes a difference to their fellow man?
Your life is all about choice. Yes, choice!
You decide the movie you want to be in.
Of course, you can tear up your own screenplay just to play cameo roles in the screenplays of others...
But you can also decide not to tear up your own screenplay but instead to follow your dreams and create the movie that serves your soul's growth.
To sacrifice your own movie, is to feel the pain of separation because in someone else's drama you will feel disconnected, alone and not able to communicate properly
But when you take up your own script and run your own film, life changes. You can feel the warmth of love in your heart and know how this connects and unites you with the warmth of love in the hearts of others. And you stay in love.
We are not talking necessarily about romantic love here. This is the love of feeling connected, attached...and belonging.
If we shun this love because we distance ourselves from others... and, of course, the loving part of ourselves, we feel immense pain, the pain of spiritual violence
Because feeling separate or apart is the pain of spiritual violence.
The worst pain we can endure.
The physical pain we can undergo is not nearly so devastating as the emotional pain we endure when we feel apart... feel disconnected... feel unable to communicate through fear.
This day, make sure that we do not bring this pain on ourselves by not acknowledging our oneness and help others to move back to their sense of belonging... because being alone and feeling separate is agony.

So dear and special friend... are you starring in the movie of your life... is it a good and positive movie bringing plenty of loving opportunity... this is what I wish for you... and for me too!
