Step 132: Ethical Center (Context & Contrast)

Back in the day – America had only 3 TV Networks (ABC-CBS-NBC).  We ALL watched the “same news.”  Now we have 500 cable channels – a plethora of Apps and and endless social streaming.  People NICHE watch news that agrees with their own “belief-space.”  Right or wrong – we love absolutes.  Right or wrong for the “masses” might not be MYright or wrong.”  Instead of “right and wrong” – – focus on “is this YES or NO for me?”  Instead of “right or wrong” – the question is “is this an Honorable Path and does it have Integrity?”  The paradox – we experience Life “from all sides” (we haven’t figured it out yet – we will) and there are many more sides to the coin than “heads or tails.”  Whatever we see “out there” that bothers/concerns/disgusts is a reflection of “who I used to be.”  The hardest bridge a person will burn is the “bridge” between “who I am” and “who I thought I was.   Thought = Belief!  Focus on what’s working – not what’s NOT working!  Be kind.  Be considerate.  Be open to a different dialogue – different conversation – and above all – consider ALL sides PLEASEThank you Ms. Shelley!  All is well!  ❤

Step 131: Focus-Forward

“Incipient – (adj.) – beginning to come into being or to become apparent.” 
It should be obvious now.  Breaking with tradition – that is no longer acceptable.  It’s time.  It’s extraordinary.  Much preparation has gone into the Unfolding that’s about to be presented to us individually – collectively in the coming week.  What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?  Seeds were planted November 7, 2018.  They come to fruition this week when the “Force” and the “Object” come face-to-face.  For today – patience please.  Focus on what IS working – not on what IS NOT working. Ask Self, “if all bets are off – what would I – could I create from my wildest dreams?”  Be practical – be kind – be compassion and remember to speak with your Soul – what does it want?  One more thing – if you don’t feel like you don’t “fit in,” pat yourself on the back – you don’t and you’re not supposed to!  All is well!   ❤

Step 128: Re-Vision

“A Woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. ” ~ Maya Angelou

Relationships offer an individual a “mirror” through “other” to experience “my-Soul-Self.”  Integrity is THE currency.  Relationship is the space between the Creator and the Created (my Soul).  Think back to January 1, 2019.  Relationships often bring to the surface our earliest patterns of Re-Lating – “shame, guilt and abandonment.”   We’re often considered a “failure” if we don’t know what we’re doing.  That’s our Culture.  For today – consider that death is necessary for anything NEW to emerge.  Consider that “doubt and uncertainty” can be powerful allies – when we are NOT influenced by our Culture. Slow down.  Re-Imagine relationship with another who is “different.”   How boring life would be – if everyone was just like “me.”  The question for today is – – – “do I still want to be dealing with this in January 2020?”  It could be a “watershed moment.”  Adjust as needed.  Everything is right on time!  All is well! ❤

 

 

Step 127: The Sticking Point

“Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.”   ~Raymond Kurzweil

Adventure = Change.  Change = Chaos.  Chaos = Disruption.  Are the “thorns” part of the roses – or – are the “roses” part of the thorns?  It’s called the STICKING POINT PERSPECTIVE!    When we’re having an adventure – we wish we were safe at home. When we’re safe at home – we wish we were having an adventure.  The masses are rarely satisfied.  Life is a Mystery – whether we’re discussing the “space between us” or “time and space.”  We can see a picture of a Black Hole – but cannot SEE the “spacebetween us.  Hmmm.  Building a pattern of behavior or a structure of any kind too quickly — results in a weak/fragile state of affairs. We need Gradual Development.  For today – find stillness in chaos and from this point of being – we can achieve something strong, long lasting and secure.  STAY NEUTRAL.  Humans “longing” for different – It’s HERE.  This is going to require sustained effort – a little courage – and long-term commitmentSurprise!  We’re going to save OURSELVES!  Be your own Shero.  All is well!   ❤

 

Step 125: Realignment – Deep Peace

“Hypermnesia – (noun) – abnormally vivid or complete memory or recall of the past.” 

Welcome to the WeekendSeeds planted today come to fruition October 28th.  Restore – Replenish – Rejuvenate. Courage and faith come in handy when addressing differences in Values.  The good news is that it’s never too late to make a change.  Do not pity others it sends a signal that there is no hope or opportunity for self-bettermentUse common sense – NOT rigid thinkingValue is based on an meaning assigned by each of us.  Love is only a word until we give it meaning. Fear IS a visitor in the nervous systemFear FEAR’S itself.  Just because Fear appears within does NOT mean “it’s my fault – something’s wrong – or – I have failed.”  Witness Fear – instead of attacking “Self.”  For today – allow Love to EMBRACE Fear!  All is well!    ❤

Step 124: Burning the Bridge – Back To The Future

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  ~Helen Keller

The hardest bridge to burn is the bridge between who “I-am-now” and who “I thought I was.”  Put BOTH feet on the ground and get back in your body.  When shadows rise up to the surface for review – it’s easy to separate – ignore – avoid – denyThat which we resist will persist.   We-ARE expanding from the inside-out now.  Shift your perspective into alignment with events as they unfold – because WE-ARE unfolding now.  The ONLY outcome guaranteed is RIGHT NOW.  
Welcome to Quantum Reality!  
For those receiving “invisible help”YES – those little “nudges” are pointing something out that needs/deserves a 2nd look. Pay CLOSE attention to “subtle – unexpected – unexplained” world around you.  Conflict is nothing more than a clash of wills.  You can bow to the pressure – you can run over others – or – you can listen to the other point of view and work together to find another option.  All it takes is one person to say – “hey – can we meet in the middle?”  Fear usually drives conflict.  All is well!  ❤

Step 121: Necessity – Mother of Invention

“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”  ~George R.R. Martin

Here’s an experiment to see how much “baggage” is being carried.  Find a backpack and a bag of potatoes.  Make a list of all the people you are angry with – you know – those people who did you wrong.  For each person – take a potato and carve their name and the date of the transgression on it.  Put it in the backpack.  Put the backpack on and you are allowed to take it off ONLY when you go to bed.  Eventually the potatoes will get heavier and start to stink.​ See how many potatoes are still in the bag on July 4, 2019.  Today recognize the baggage being carried – and hopefully – by July 4th – the backpack will be much lighter.  The 2 dates are connected.  All is well!   ❤
