Did you ever feel as you where in limbo?

According to the definitions, I found. Limbo is:

First, Often capitalized; an abode of souls that are according to Roman Catholic theology barred from heaven because of not having received Christian baptism.

Second; A: a place or state of restraint or confinement; B: a place or state of neglect or oblivion “Proposals kept in limbo”; C: an intermediate or transitional place or state; D: a state of uncertainty.

Being myself a Catholic this definitions are the closest things we know. We were taught at home, as much as in church about limbo; however, for some reason, my understanding of things was a little off for my younger age.

It was not until my teenage years, when I finally understood the concept. In addition, I was experiencing, not only physical changes in my life, but also on my psychic ability of seeing and hearing, what others can’t. “On time to time” It is like being in the Limbo and I will probably use this; c: final answer. Sometimes feeling isolated or like you do not belong.

In my daily life, it is sometimes like a juggling act with chainsaws in which the minimal distraction can cost you death, pain and suffering.

As Mexican married for three years and a half to an American citizen, it also can make you feel in Limbo. I will try to explain it the best way I can. It is not because we do not love each other, because we do. Most of the feeling comes from the isolation and racial discrimination caused by the lack of information, knowledge and understanding; with this last one, I will add up. “You should walk a mile in my shoes”

Right at this moment, I am happy to say I will be soon a resident of United States. Nevertheless, even becoming legal to live and work will not change the undeniable and painful truth, that every time we hear, watch or read a racial comment it will make us feel like in the Limbo. However, when we come out of limbo we will be stronger.

Let us review this if you ever felt like you do not belong or being rejected by any means, either because the color of your skin or your personal beliefs, religion or any other reason. Think of Limbo not only as the definition above said, think it as a retreat, where you can get stronger, inform, educated, with better understanding, compassion and forgiveness.

As I mentioned it on my last post the law of attraction, it is a universal law. If you think positive, it will bring positive into your life. However if you think negative the law of attraction will bring negative things into your life repeatedly.

What does "out and about" really mean?

Personally, to me means is taking care of many things I would much rather ignore, like the undeniable truth of reality. Every one needs to face it. Otherwise, it will turn around and bite you in the butt. Nevertheless, we procrastinate about it and we refuse to believe many of the things, we are letting go for not being active in our day-to-day life.

Some people will say, “I wish the day had an extra hour to have enough time to do my errands.” Others will say, “All you need is to organize yourself time wise” and others may not even worry about saying anything to you at all because they are to worried about being out and about themselves.

The simplest way to say it might be “mine your own business”, which sounds rude and selfish. The reason why I say this is because let us face it. There is too much pain and suffering around us.

Oil prices raised and fall, unsure markets. Economically speaking.

Different natural like hurricanes, tsunamis, floods,  and man-made disasters, good example BP oil spill, which will make us, desensitize as human beings.

Yes, we have been having a lot of time on our hands to think on the meaning of it. In addition, I should say the deepest meaning of “Out and about”.

Not just doing our own things, but also helping others doing their own things, proving the helping hand finding solutions to common problems and stop being intolerant. It is too easy to blame others of what we are not doing than to blame the real villains here, “Our fears”.

If the phrase “out and about”, was properly broken down in two parts, and get basic meaning. I will do it the following way. OUT: looking and reaching out for others with the same ideals of greatness, and the belief that everything has a solution, also learn more what the power and law of attraction does because these will bring to you what you're asking for. ABOUT: on the move to find understanding all around or on all sides of the feelings of others movement to or among many different places, beliefs and cultures without negative taught.

After all, when somebody asked you what have you been doing and your answer is “out and about” think if you have been doing any of those things. Regardless your answer, it will be always your answer in addition, regardless of what I think. Are you reaching out and about others?
