Entry 83 - A (re-) Introduction

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 23, 2013 10:43 am

Hello everypony,

It is so very good to be able to be here among you again....

I had the wonderful opportunity to get to know many of you in my previous life as Twilight Sparkle (madrigal). We developed deep, wonderful friendships that I hope with all my heart continue on as the fabric of my old existence has fallen away to expose what was within.



I would like to think that all things happen for some form of higher reason, (even the things that cause us stress or discomfort whilst we are within them). And so I find myself looking for reasons why we all have found our ways to this Earth, into these human bodies, for however long each one of us is here.

A part of that purpose, I am sure, is to help this world and her peoples in some way... perhaps to help bring a little of the goodness we remember from our homes in Equestria here to this world. Perhaps to show that yes, it is possible for a human body to make better choices than what is commonly accepted as society's “status-quo.”

Another part of the reason we are here may be for this world to help us.

Harsh as it can be some times... this world might be able to act as a crucible for us... to help us to “burn away” issues we couldn't work-out over lifetimes on a world that was more... straightforward, (for lack of a better word).


A very wise dragon once told me, “Excellence is made of experience; experience is made of mistakes.



And so... I hope that one doesn't think that by my showing myself openly that I am thinking that I am, or pretending to be, “perfect.” I am not. I never have been. I have made many mistakes, and I am certain that I shall continue to do so.

I am here, working to become a better pony, just like everypony else.

I am hoping that together, each of us fulfilling the song that resides within each of our hearts and dreams, that we can help one another continue to put one hoof in front of the other... picking one-another up when we fall, (_when_ we fall,) dusting one-another off and helping each-other continue along our personal paths even when times are tough.


Like The Elements of Harmony themselves, each and every pony here brings something specific, something vital, to the greater group of what we are as a herd.

Together... we create magic.

Hello Princes Celestia.

I am glad to see you again as well. I am looking forward to reading this Journal as much as I did with the Journal of your time as your student Twilight Sparkle. I wonder if you had to go through that stage to learn the humility of being a student first.

Having very recently learned the value by being on the receiving end of such kindness. I understand the wisdom you are teaching in your post. I learned how even the smallest gesture can sometimes mean the most. I agree it is important to strive to be a better pony. Even if I have nothing more to offer than a listening ear.

Your faithful Student.

Twilie.


PS. How is spike handling this change. I can imagine that this must have been quite the change for him aswell.

Welcome! Or welcome back! I'm glad you're settling into your new role (Those are some big shoes to fill, and you've done so with grace and humility). It is a joy and a comfort to have humble leaders in our midst. I want to thank not only you, but all of the leaders of this herd, for service to this community.

Dear Twilie,

Thank you so much! That means so much to me! <3

*smiles thoughtfully...* There were many things I needed to learn, humility being only one of a very, very long checklist of things. Smile

Now, there are new things I need to learn. We never reach a point where our journeys are "over". If we choose to continue to grow beyond where we were, there is always something more.


*nods...* You are so very right, Twilie... small things can mean so very much. <3


Sometimes a listening ear of a caring friend is worth more than all the gold in the world.


Be well, my dear student,
~Celestia


P.S. Spike is getting used to the change well... I have the feeling he knew all along. (Dragons are mysterious and wise creatures. Smile )

It's ponies like yourself that keep the rest of us strong and always trying our best.



Namaste, my gentle friend.

Wouldn't that increase taxes (thus not making it free) or put the makers of ice cream out of business?

I'm glad to hear that your journey is going so smoothly. You've always had a very unique and interesting view on the work we do here. Now that you've taken the next step, I look forward to reading what else you discover on your journey. Good luck, wherever it takes you.

I think yours was one of the first journals I started reading here, a while before I even had an account.
As such, I's say that this has been a long time in the making, and it's hardly surprising at all.
Looking back on your journal, there was always such a strong focus on growth, learning and teaching.
You've come a long way on your journey, and even though this may seem like a major game-changing new direction, I'm sure the best is yet to come.
After all you've told us of your journey, I'm proud to call you Celestia.

...And then you just go and summarise the exact mindset not only this community, but the world should share.
Perhaps, eventually, this world will understand and accept these ideals.
And perhaps we will have a hand in teaching it.

*chuckles with Spectra, Platinum and Krazy* ...If we were back in Equestria, I'd do what I could to make a special holiday where Ice Cream and Gelato shop keepers could be compensated to offer free servings. Smile

*dips her head deeply* Och, Spectral... thank you so very much. <3



*smiles softly...* Our job in this world may be just to shine a light... to lead through example....

In the end, the choice of how this world is shaped belongs to the beings for whom this world _is_ their home.

We must simply do the best we can.


Love and Light,
~Celestia
