It All Starts Now
We are born into an age of wonder where everything sparks an excited look, a curious touch, a new smell or taste; and it is all experienced in the comfort of knowing that there is a love that supports us; which holds us warmly to its breast where the sweet beat of life resounds within, as and for us.
As we grow we continue our search for that new excitement, that new sail that will move our boat further on its path to happiness. Sometimes we are saddened as we steer ourselves out of the harbor that we have come to know and love, but our sadness quickly turns to an excited anticipation as the wind and current take us to our new unfoldment. And so we bask in the sunlight of life as it takes us from one destination, one experience to the next. We feel the warmth of that sunlight and it reminds us of our youth; when we were coddled and embraced in the loving arms of our nearest and dearest.
We glide smoothly across life’s waters in our ship of discovery and watch as clouds reflect through the ripples of water into the endless sky. We allow our gaze to move with these reflections up, into the blue, and watch these pillars of white let loose their seeds of possibilities back into the greater form from which they came. And when the seeds have gone, we watch these clouds of wonder float gently across our horizon, changing in shape and hue as if mirroring our deepest desires.
There is a richness to this life. It is inspired by our attention yet forgotten when that attention is taken away. Still it remains part of our expanding awareness of ourselves as well as the greater Awareness from which all things have come.
I am grateful in my experience, for it is full of wonder, full of mystery and excitement, ever unfolding, ever expanding, ever giving birth to the new. It is my unfoldment and it is given to me as it has always been give: with warmth, through caring and with love.
We all fall at one time or another. I’m not talking about the kind where you trip over something and splat with your nose buried in the dirt, although that seems to happen more than its fair share as well. I am talking about the so-called “fall from grace”. It is inevitable that failure happens. How can it not? We make choices and take chances in order to move ourselves forward. Sometimes we fall. But what happens after we fall? Ah, yes. That is an interesting question. Sit and be depressed and believe it is never possible to experience that joy once thought to be within reach? What purpose would that serve other than to delay that inner pull that took you to that cusp of success in the first place?
Falling can be, as Dickens once put it, the worst of times, but it can also be the best of times, if we choose to make it so. The worst of times because it can be a very depressing: the antithesis to that successful venture so often visualized. The best of times because it brought the satisfaction of the effort, the experience of the grit with which the attempt was made. More than this, it is knowing that this does not have to be the end. Rather, if we choose to see it so, it is a beginning. The result may not have been exactly what was intended, but then neither was penicillin.
I decided that today is as good a day as any to restart my daily pages. It’s what I do to empty all of the “stuff” that is on my mind, to get rid of the clutter that tends to get in the way of creativity. There is always so much there to unload…at least until I sit and stare at the blank page. I know. Happens to you too, huh. Sometimes I find myself just writing over and over: “I don’t know what to write.” Then it starts; that stream of thought, a blur of ink and paper. It’s like I pulled my finger from the dyke and the water just started flowing out.
It’s amazing how things start pouring in when the clutter has been released! But that’s how it works anytime the waterway is cleared.
I recently started co-hosting a study group on Abraham-Hicks. Hard to describe what Abraham does. It’s not really teaching. That’s not the right word. It’s more of a relating; a coaching; a close, personal, intuitive transfer of information about who and what we really are. Here are some of my thoughts on that: If we all share in the same consciousness,there is really no reason each of us should not be able to tune in/tap into that ocean of feelings, thoughts, information or existence and experience the download. We should be able to do this consciously (at least that’s the goal) but it seems the art has been lost to the falsity of all the “stuff” that surrounds us. That is why I (and Abraham) are such big proponents of getting it out and of meditation.
There are so many surface-level distractions in this existence: Sights, sounds, physical touch, taste and so on. It makes it difficult to quiet one’s mind. But when we do it is almost beyond description. With practice the distractions disappear or fade into the background of the unimportant, leaving our inner being free to soar home into that sea of knowing, of bliss, of love.
Have you tried to meditate? There are so many different ways to do it and so many books and recordings that can walk you through it, including my book. (“It’s All About Me”–I know, shameless plug) Take some time for yourself and give it a try. It can only help. I promise not to do the “I told you so.”
