Pretty Useful Message

Read these words very carefully. Pay attention to their meaning. I am going to tell you something that you’re going to find pretty useful. Also – you will transcend.

I was never meant for this world. There is another place. But I kinda took a wrong turn – accidents happen, right? I was going to deliver a message there but hey, here I am – so I’ll tell you instead, okay?

Listen up.

Okay, hold on. We need to get you in the proper frame of mind, so here’s a bunch of stuff for you to do first:

  • Place your right palm flat on the skin of your chest – above your heart. Yes, push your clothing aside if you have to. All of it. The skin-to-skin contact is important. Closing your eyes now would be ideal but clearly not possible, so keep them open.
  • Tap all your fingers, one by one, against your chest. Feel them drumming against your skin in a staccato rhythm. Now forget about your fingers.
  • Press your palm against your skin. Feel your hand and chest grow warm and focus on that heat for a moment. Now forget about your hand.
  • Take a deep breath. Feel your rib-cage rise as the air fills your lungs. Hold the pose. Then exhale. Now forget about your breath.
  • Feel for your heart. Feel it beating against your palm. If you can’t feel it, try taking five or six really deep breaths. Feeling it? Now forget about your heart.
  • Search for the afterglow of your fingers, hand, breath and heart inside your mind. Chase it down. Focus on it. Feel it. Now forget about your mind.

Alrighty – here’s the message:

You are …

Actually, forget it. Just been flicking this thing you have called The Internet and found that a buddy of mine – you prolly know him as Buddha, came and dropped the message already. As you were, peeps.

      • It’s no issue. Well, I’ve had better days. College and assignments always make sure to never let me take enough sighs of relief. How’s today treating you? Hope your day is more relaxing that mine.

      • I figured out why I thought your site wasn’t working – it’s because you have the wrong link in your settings. Whereas it should say youronlinepal.wordpress.com, it actually says nixie.wordpress.com. You can change it by clicking on the icon for your site at the top right (between Write and the alarm bell, then clicking on Account Settings then correcting the entry in the Web Address field.
        And yeah, my day is pretty good, thanks. πŸ™‚ College and assignments are something (for me) that can wait until October when I start the second year of my Masters (Creative Writing). Hope you get on top of stuff pretty quick. πŸ™‚

      • Yeah I accidentally messed up with my site address while experimenting something. I tried to sort it out. Hope I was able to do so. Lucky you. You have a lot of time to relax. Get the best of everything till October. But Master’s is pretty sick.( No first hand experience but my brother is doing in English literature so I kind of got the idea.) I don’t know how will I survive Master’s when I’m already sinking while doing Bachelor’s.

      • You’ll get smarter as you get more experience under your belt – at least, that’s the way it’s working out for me. When I was younger, I didn’t have the understanding or depth of interest in things that I do now.
        You managed to fix your site address so the link works perfectly now. I gotta confess that because your link did not work and you have changed your profile picture I was struggling to place you, Rachel. It’s all good now. πŸ™‚
        Hope you manage to carve out some time to relax.

      • I’m hoping for that my brain is able to open a few doors and windows to accommodate all the things I would need to know in Master’s.
        It’s just a matter of time. When I was younger, I hated Social studies and now I want to take up a career in geography. We’re all pretty stupid when we’re kids.
        Yeah I changed my display name. I’d been meaning to do that since a long time but just couldn’t find the perfect name…until my current one struck me. Most people weren’t able to guess who I was since “youronlinepal” had been my name since day 1.
        And thank you for being nice. Yes, I was able to relax for a while. Thanks to my Ukulele which helps me unwind.

      • Ukulele and youronlinepal only appear on the same webpage 5 times, and none of them feature either of those words. I’ve kind of given up trying to understand how the internet works. Or, when it comes to that, how I work. I mean – why would I want to search for that on the internet?!
        That said – here’s to open doors and windows. πŸ™‚

      • Unwinding. Hmm – never thought about it.
        I guess I read. A lot. Novels and fiction both.
        I walk lots too.
        Oh wait – I know – I meditate – why didn’t I think of that straight away! πŸ™‚
        If I can get time, I write – that can be very relaxing for me. I can work through the issues (the stress) and come to a resolution. Just realised that I’ve realised that I don’t really need to do anything about stress because actually, the stressors tend to just go away in time. Of course, it helps to do stuff too. Like if an assignment is stressing me out, often writing the assignment takes away the stress.
        Hmm.
        And I sleep well and eat well and avoid too much sugar (that affects my mood and can lead to stress).
        That do for now? πŸ™‚
