Step 137: Lotus Unfolding

“When God hands you Sh*t – make fertilizer.”  ~Clarence Woodward
The Lotus is Unfolding. November 7, 2018 – what was happening? A “seed” was planted.  Spread joy and be love.  Whatever “was” reaches culmination.  The Death/Rebirth Cycle.  Cast DECAY away.  Humans destroy and rebuild themselves everyday on a cellular level.  When you take your very last breath as an Earthwalker – will there be regretWhat is that one thing you keep postponingTake another look it today.  There is a big difference between religion and spirituality.  Never forget – – – Compassion – Empathy – Forgiveness – Generosity – are sentient forces. We’ve gone from Collective-Strong – to – Entitled Individual.  Welcome to the Turning Point. For today – – It’s the end of the line – – – pause – – – take a deep breath and say “thank you” for the blessings (learned AND unlearned – seen and unseen).  The learning curve accelerates.  Life is experienced from ALL sides – not just yours OR mine.  All that’s happening is we are being asked to take the “Next Step.”  Struggle is optional. Trust yourself – above all others.  Expect unpredictable intensity – – to be able to SEE in the dark. Happy Birthday Buddha!  Go outside and look at the Moon tonight.  Be your own Shero!  All is well!   ❤

Step 134: The Liar’s Paradox

“Accept what is.  Release what was.  Create what must BE.”  ~Andrea Balt

The Liar’s Paradox (Sutherland Careers)

What is it? More famously known as the Epimenides paradox, this is one of the oldest known paradoxes having been first suggested circa 600BC.  Greek Philosopher Eubulides of Miletus postulated “A man says that he is lying.  Is what he says true or false?”  The basic premise of this paradox is – “This statement is false.”

Wait, What?  If “This statement is false” is true, then “This statement is false” is true.  Therefore “This statement is falsemust be false.  The hypothesis that “This statement is false” is true leads to the conclusion that “This statement is false” is false, which is a contradiction.

To put it in simpler terms, I will assign the coefficient of (A) to the statement “This statement is false” which gives us:

If (A) is true, then (A) is true.  Therefore (A) must be false.  The hypothesis that (A) is true leads to the conclusion that (A) is false, which is a contradiction.  Think that is confusing?  We are just getting started!

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 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 123: Context – Nature – Substance

“Showing that they don’t care about me, or caring that I should know they don’t care about me, still denotes dependence. They show me respect precisely by showing me that they don’t respect me.” ~Soren Kierkegaan
August 2017Do you remember your priority-dream-goal-vision?  How has the focus changed – and – what is the current priority-dream-goal-visionIt’s called “re-organizing perception.”  Love is a word – until you give it meaning.  Hate is a word – until you give it meaning.  Miracle is a word – until you give it meaning.  Would you allow someone to look out for your best interests when they’ve already proven they only look out for themselves?  Love – Hate – Miracle.  Karma is NOT a “Cosmic Debt.”  It’s the ability to experience Life from ALL SIDES! Words have power.  Be AWARE!  All is well! ❤

Step 96: Right-On-Time

“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 timeLet’s look out for one another.  All is well.   ❤
