I celebrated my birthday this past weekend, so in today’s post, I want to share with you my perspective around this event…

It is funny, because I always feel anxious around my birthday for some strange reason. This time, I could feel it more intensely. It is as if I have a massive amount of energy building up within and around me. This still remains a mystery to me.

Anyways, since a year ago, my perspective around time has changed soooo much, that thinking about my birthday under the context of linearity seemed senseless. Let me explain... As my consciousness has expanded, I have come to know that time is just an illusion, and so is space. We have been under a matrix that makes us feel as if time was real, but this is just an illusion. The only moment is the now, and the now is a paradox.

Within the now we have timeless time and spaceless space. We have infinity and emptiness. We are the one and the many. And it is by embracing this paradox that we can dwell in the indivisibility and eternity of our Selves. It was this understanding that made me change my perception about my birthday.

We are made anew in each moment, literally. If we could only let go the memories of what we consider to be the “past”, we would be completely renewed and regenerated each second of our lives. It is only by clinging unto the past that we bring that illusion into the present.
I love this affirmation from the ancient records of the Hadjika: “I am beginningless and endless".

And I also love this quote from Almine’s Divinity Quest: “The presence of the master who dwells in the uncompromising certainty of a deathless existence, brings exponential blessings to all life”.

Once we realize that we cannot be contained within space or time, that we are a perspective superimposed over all that is, and that all is within us; we will then come to know ourselves as eternal.

That being said, I used my “birthday” as an opportunity to reiterate my eternity, to practice my perception of timelessness, and to believe in the fullness of my ever-renewing being. And of course, I had a special time sharing this celebration with my family. And even more special is the fact that my brother, who is 3 years younger than me was also born the same day, so we both celebrated at the same time!

Many of you may be wondering what I ate that day, so I decided to share with you the food I made for myself with love and appreciation (I did not take any pictures, but will do so the next time!): As the main course, I decided to create a dish using massaged kale with olive oil, some quinoa, raw pesto and avocado, it was fabulous! And for dessert, I got this amazing raw cheesecake with berries from a newly found amazing vegan restaurant in Mexico City by the name Coco y Chia. The best thing of all is that I got to share this with my beloved ones and they very much enjoyed it as well!

So today, I hope you can recognize, through these words, the magnificent, eternal, beginingless and endless part of you. This is an invitation to celebrate our birthdays each second of our lives. Because we are truly anew in each moment!

In love and appreciation,
