Step 171: The Long Slow Dance

“If you always do, what you have always done – you will always get, what you have always gotten.”  ~ A Wise Person

“Before I die, I want to ____________.”   Sun stands still – Summer Solstice – longest day – shortest night in the Northern Hemisphere.  We begin our descent into the Darkness after reaching the peak.  Bodies are born – we are not.  Bodies die – we do not.  We cycle through the Seasons and call it “my Life.”  The Unconscious is waking upSome are disappointed.  Some are conflicted.  Some gain clarity.  Some find resolution.  Return to “my” Core.    For today – no matter what – embrace and lean in. Resisting prolongs pain.  Seeds planted last Fall are going to begin blooming.  Asking “WHY” is the first step to surrendering to the Intelligence of the Heart.  Once a body dies – the Mind disappears – it’s a construct created by “my brain” to help “me” function as an Earthwalker.  “Lions and tigers and bears – oh my!”  Question everything! There is a Hope and/or a Dream – but it will require long-term-commitment.  How far do you want to go – how much are you willing to risk? Stretch your body – stay hydrated – get out in Nature and laugh out loud (at least once) today!  You can save yourself – Be your own Shero!  Be kind. Have compassion. Look into a stranger’s eyes.  All is well!  ❤

Step 161: The Breath Not Taken!

“Aliveness comes down to one thing—consenting to rise, to be indented, impressed, pressed in upon, to rejoin, to open, to ponder, to be where we are in this moment and see what happens, allowing the breath of not knowing to be taken.”  ~Ann Ulanov
Expect inspiration.  Expect synchronicity. Unity is the goal.  We study history so we learn from it – and don’t repeat it. Pretty simple. Success is not a substitute for values.  Character is important.  It’s called Emotional Intelligence.  Think back to around March 7thRunning away – or – running toward somethingConfusion – or – clarity?  Melancholy occurs when we face being “broken-open.”  Sadness occurs when we believe something is “missing.”  The sub-conscious can be a powerful ally – when allowed to “dream the impossible dream.”  What if you knew that choices being made in the first 2 weeks of June would have powerful repercussions in December 2021?  Would that make a difference in tangible action taken todayFor today – Be your own Super-Shero, take a step toward a cherished dream/vision/quest – and KNOW that there is meaning – purpose – a reason – it all worked out the way it did.  An unexpected gift arrives – right on timeOh – – the irony of it all!  All is well!  

“Circumspect – (Adj.) careful to consider all circumstances and possible consequences.”

Every beginning starts with an ending. The pendulum swings from “me” to “we” continuously – – back and forth – every 80 years.  Connect Dots.  We’ve gone from “fighting for common good” to “fighting each other.”  We exist in two worlds. The world we see – AND  – the world we don’t see. Is it possible to see how the Mind unconsciously manipulates “my” thinking process?  Look to where ego has taken control – aka – dogma – beliefs – behaviors (in relationships/ business/questing). Ego says, “he/she/they should do this or that – act a certain way.”  ReallySays “who?”  This week – Welcome disclosure and transparency as it reveals “blind spots” – – be honest with Self.  We are ALL ignorant about our blind spots.  Integrity is currencyJustice arrives when it’s Time.  Think back to 1989 (current frame of reference) – – yes – – walls will fallAnd the pendulum swings.  Whatever the BIG problem (out-there) you are focused on – remember – we all caused it and keep perpetuating it.  No one person created it – but – Together – we will correct it.  “Karma is NOT a Cosmic Debt” – – it’s experiencing something the Soul desires from ALL sides.  Have faith and get ready to take a “flying Leap” later this week.  We’re ready!  Be yourself – you’re more than enough.  You’ve got this!  Keep a sense of humor especially if you’ve asked/hoped/wished/prayed for hasn’t arrived – just yet!  Up to now – perhaps “I’ve” been protected when “I thought I was being denied.”  HmmmWhat does MY SOUL want to experience today?  All is well!    ❤

Step 146: Feel What You Know

“A turn or two I’ll walk, to still my beating mind.” ~Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest

The Latin phrase “Solvitur Ambulando”  translates to “it is solved walking.”

2019 is the Year of BurnoutWalking is the key to health, well-being and creativity. What worked 50 years ago is no longer working.  Breaking Ancestral Patterns is not for the faint of heart!  The only way to SEE what IS working is to SEE what IS NOT working. See?  Life rarely works out the way “I plan” – it’s a series of Unintended Consequences.  Plans are usually based on assumptions – and assumptions are are like holding a “greased pig.”  Lots of wiggle-room.  And detailed plans (ahhh, my personal favorite) are nothing more than “wishful thinking” of a scientific Mind.  For today – focus on what IS working –  not on  what is NOT working, let go of plans – focus on objectives, forget about deadlines – work with an outlineAbove all – remember – it’ll take as long as it takes.  Time will continue to move on – keep taking steps – get outside – take a walk!  All is well!   ❤
