Ode To Maggie…

I recently lost a dear friend suddenly which I found to be quite shocking to my system. It took me several days to digest what had transpired. I certainly didn’t want that painful experience to be all there was to my friend’s passing, I wanted to spend time with my grief and find the lesson it had to offer me. There is always good hidden within the bad if we take the time to look for it.  Sometimes it appears quickly and we go “Ah…So that was what it was all about”. Then again sometimes the lessons to be learned can take days or months to reveal their purpose. You never know how things will play out which is why we must have faith that the good is there if we are patient.

Being in the last stage of my life I have lost quite a few people throughout the years and yet this death hit me harder than the others. That intrigued me and so I sat with my sadness for two days and searched for the answers I was after. So why was this passing so crushing to my heart? I realized how our friendship had allowed me to be myself with no fear ever of being judged or thought less of. We both shared that wonderful aspect of our friendship. It flowed both ways easily. In recognizing this fact I also  suddenly realized how much of my life is spent wearing masks for whomever I am with at that moment. It is exhausting to always be on guard, second guessing ourselves, trying so hard to be someone maybe we really aren’t just so we can fit in and be accepted.

Life right now is one giant stage filled with ego driven actors vying for the publics attention. It never stops, what we see is a play, a drama unfolding but sadly far from the truth of the reality we are living in. Nobody it seems is being authentic, they are revealing particular sides to themselves so they can capture their audience and complete their agendas. I used to think it was all the lying by these people that drove me quietly insane,which was true, but it is more than that. There is no authenticity to life anymore. We say and do what we need to say or do to get to where we are going. This is so wrong and it is essentially why life is NOT operating smoothly today. Everyone has memorized their lines that they regurgitate over and over, but WHO ARE THEY REALLY? Who is hiding behind the masks and why?

My dear friend’s passing has reminded me of the importance of being authentic in one’s life. Be who you truly are! Do what your heart and soul truly want you to do. Say what is truthfully in your heart not your head. NEVER be afraid to be yourself or fear what others will think of you! The world seems so exhausted right now and stressed out and that is because nobody is truly being themselves, they are play acting and that sucks our souls energy and steals away our true purpose. How can we live a meaningful life if we are never being who we really are?

I think there is little hope for the political fools who are destroying the country lie by lie, but there is great hope for each of us out here who wishes to live an authentic life and has the courage to be vulnerable and offer themselves to the world just as they are, masks off and heart open to giving and receiving. I intend to spend the rest of my life doing just that and hopefully life’s meaning will expand and reward me for my efforts. We can all do this. It’s what the world needs desperately to survive. TRUTH!

Blessings and love,

Visionkeeper ❤

  1. Firstly VK, so sorry to hear you lost such a valued friend.. Its rare these days to be ‘oneself’ completely safe in the knowledge which true friendships brings.. I remember the depth of my own loss of a dear and valued friend, the gaping hole it left, for like you say its rare we put down the masks and can truly BE ourselves with no judgements..

    Something the world seems at large to constantly be playing.. A game of charades, in which we have all become players.. Some more good at their play acting than others.. Especially the political arena’s of the world.. Where I think even they have forgotten their roles as they repeat the same lines that many of us now have heard over and over and no longer believe..

    I hope dear VK that you are healing since you posted this.. Sending Love and well wishes my friend..
    Hubby and I are well, I am starting today to emerge back into word press.. but still tired and so I take things daily, Hubby has been brilliant in that he has done most of the allotment without me these past few weeks..
    Sending continued thoughts VK.. and thank you for your friendship 🙂 ❤ Hugs

    • Thank you so much DW….What you say is so true…I’m sorry you too lost a good friend. If we can find the lesson in the departure then it all makes sense and for good reason. Maggie showed me by departing just what I truly had and honestly probably didn’t acknowledge enough while I had it. Until she was gone! I realized how raw and truthful our friendship was with NEVER one worry of judgment or displeasure. It was such a gift that I am just glad to have experienced it with her.
      Glad hubby got the allotment done without you! Good for him. Giant gold star on his chart for sure!!! I am glad you have had quiet time to yourself and I hope you were able to find peace within. I hope the stress has subsided and life looks brighter…You are missed often but I know it is for such a good reason! Be well dear friend and don’t let the insanity drag you down! Sending you love and hugs…VK <3.

      • Thank you VK… and I will give Hubby that Gold star… 🙂
        Feeling brighter, in spirit, I have come to the conclusion, that perhaps the burden I carried that weighted me down was not my own.. But that of the energy in our surrounding area at the moment.. I have been doing more clearing, cleansing, and inner work.. And shedding that which I need not carry.. Another Major Learning curve as we shed yet more layers to lighten the load.. ❤ Take care too my friend.. ❤

    • I think we are all carrying the weight of an unevolved world on our shoulders! We know what it should be but we see how backwards it is…It is a heavy burden for sure. Flap those wings and prepare for take off DW…Happy flying….VK ❤

  2. Again, VK, I am so sorry for your loss. You can learn as I have that you can leave the masks off with everyone. Perhaps this is your friend’s gift to you. That is what I “am getting”. Much LOVE and HUGE HUGS!!! XOXO

    • Thanks Skyz….My real loss is the freedom to be me…She allowed that but the world in general does not. I am just glad I had a friend I cared enough about to feel a loss! It brings into sharper clarity the worlds need to shift away from where we are to a world that does not judge and allows the freedom for all to be exactly who they want to be. Hope all is well at your end. Looks like it is popcorn time! Hugs…VK ❤


  3. Sorry for your loss, VK. My thoughts are with you.
    I agree with everything you say here. I don’t feel too comfortable shedding my masks at present, in some areas at least… but I realise the areas where I don’t need them, I still wear a disguise to a certain extent. Small steps.
    We’ll get there.

    • Thanks TL…The sad thing is that as long as we wear masks we will NEVER be who we are meant to be. What a waste of a life if we allow this to keep on.Masks are for hiding our true identity and that comes from our belief that we are not acceptable as we are! No time for small steps TL…It’s time for leaps of courage! Good luck in your unmasking 🙂 VK


Please share your thoughts so we can all come together...Thank you.
