I believe in the importance of being true to myself in every moment by doing what I love.

How is it possible to continuously do what you love when there are things you sometimes have to do that you don't particularly enjoy?

Easy, just think about what you love.

For instance, I recently attended my nephew's confirmation at a Catholic church he's been attending since he was a child. It wasn't something I was looking forward to but I had promised that I would be there to support my older brother and his family.

As much as I appreciate the Scriptures and have even been inspired by the Bible, I can't get emotional over religious icons. Now if the icons were dressed as Klingons or some other alien entities that appear on the sci-fi series Star Trek, that would be a totally different matter as I LOVE Star Trek. I can even relate to a lot of the story lines. I remember how I felt when I attended a Star Trek Exhibition. Being on the bridge was like entering a shrine. That was special.

Back to the confirmation ceremony, where I was feeling like the proverbial fish out of water, I did the only thing I knew to keep me sane - I hummed Michael Jackson's songs. While I was lost in music that I loved, I wasn't bothered about how many times we had to get up and sit down for the different rituals. And the ceremony seemed to whizz by and was finished in no time. The most fun part of the ceremony was when people shake hands and wish each other peace.

My point is there are many ways I can still be true to myself even when I'm doing what I don't like: I can think about what I love; or I can just be in silence.

When I'm being myself/following my heart, ordinary events are transformed into the extraordinary. In other words, when I'm resonating at the Love frequency, life is full of magic and wonder.

Thank you, Michael, for always being there for me.

There are many events that I avoid (weddings and funerals instantly spring to mind) because I FEEL I'm not socially prepared for them. This actually isn't quite true. I do pretty well at most social gatherings, but I think I tell myself this as a defense mechanism to avoid telling myself that I'm just a selfish jerk! Perhaps what I need to do is start projecting positivity as you did at that event. When things became difficult, you found a place you could be happy without being disruptive, and then fully engaged in the parts that you identified with and enjoyed. Many times I think that at gatherings such as those, I must be fully supportive of ALL that happens, but perhaps that's not true. It might just be that it's more important to attend and remain true to myself while not being disrespectful of those who identify more with the event than I do.

Hi Delateur. I find when I'm always "Home" in my Being, then I can support what others are being while staying true to myself. http://alldoneanddusted1.blogspot.com/2009/04/home-away-from-home.html

The next day I attended a gathering to celebrate the confirmation. Although I spent part of the time chatting to the guests, I spent time watching videos of MJ. My brother and guests started chatting about MJ and we ended up listening to MJ songs.

Love to you,

There's a park in London called Richmond Park that I adore. Sometimes when I feel like a mental break, I think of my favourite spot and I'm there and in utter bliss. It matters not what's going on around me. :-) http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/richmond_park/about.cfm
