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 MY “right 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 sidesPLEASE. Thank you Ms. Shelley! All is well! ❤
“Convergence – (n) – the act of moving toward union; coordinated movement of the two eyes so that the image of a single point is formed on corresponding retinal areas; independent development of similar characters (as of a bodily structure of unrelated organisms or cultural traits) often associated with similarity of habits or environment.”
Let’s celebrate our mistakes. “I AM the meaning in my life.” Reality checkpoint. Hypothesis or Hypocrisy. Substance or Illusion. Ideal or Practical Reality. Rams and Goats. Insecurity creates doubt. Molehills can turn into mountains. We are each tasked to now work at a pace that is required – not easy in the best of times. Healing starts with self-forgiveness. The question is “which pieces do I pick up” in the aftermath of Humpty-Dumpty’s great fall? Avoid myth. Investigate. Make no assumptions. Balance – Balance – Balance. We’re right on time. Let’s look out for one another. All is well. ❤
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as who you become by achieving your goals.” Thoreau
Where do you feel “pressured” to fit in? Expansion – Contraction – Transformation. Point of Balance. Spirit experiences life in the Sacred Temple called “my body.” When emotions gain momentum – managing impulsive/compulsive actions becomes difficult – especially when it’s emotions that have been suppressed. Emotions are usually attached to another human being. For today – take a good long hard look at relationship attachments. Be totally honest with Self. Life is lived one day at a time. Be your own Witness. Forgive Self when forgiving others. For those trying to “let go” or “cut the cord” – try the following. Sit still – get quiet inside.
Repeat several times each day for the next 28 days:
“I release (first and last name) unto God. He/She is in his/her true place at all times. I am free, and he/she is free. I now decree that my words go forth into Infinite Mind and it brings it to pass. It is so.”
“The trouble is, you think you have time.” ~Buddha
When we’re hungry or feel like we’re starving – we’ll gorge on what’s in front of us. We end up overstuffed – undernourished – dissatisfied. The Soul needs HIGH quality food. When the Soul detoxes it sheds old thoughts, feelings, pain and struggle. Old memories are departing the Soul. Where am I out of integrity?
What’s chronic, repetitive or inflamed in my inner or outer life?
Where am I not feeling what I feel – knowing what I know – saying what I believe or doing what feels most right?
What would radical simplicity look like for me?
How do I keep it lean and clean?
What needs to be cleaned up so I can be free to do and offer my best work in the world?
