“A vivid thought (meditation) brings the power to paint it; and in proportion to the depth of its source is the force of its projection.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
My friend recently gave me $50, saying, “you’ll know what to do with this” – only thing was he’d left it in the pocket of his shorts he had carefully steam-ironed, so it looked like one of those microwaved potato chip packet experiments. Two carpet snakes (almost 3 meters in length) live in the canopy above my bed and had recently shed their skin & left their gift draped over the end of my bedroom desk.
My most recent sit (meditation) was watching in my minds eye a seed embracing its future-flourishing, at the same time, destroying its protective seed-coat & how our values, attitude, priorities, focus, mental and emotional states, environment, all frame our perceptual lens.
From an outsider’s viewpoint of that initial unravelling seed-covering it seems to be devastation. From my perspective, the old blueprint (the melted $50) combined shed snakeskin (a symbol for growth and transmutation) made an interesting collage to frame.
I know my interior orientation shifts my worldview, “I can be what I will to be” expands the horizons of my story-scape bigtime & I have watched that play out in my life many times.
The universe is so achingly beautiful
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”WB Yeats
Our world is quietly patiently waiting for our senses to come alive to the abundance of magical things it holds. The greatest I seek is in me already – let it magnificently shine… sparkle delightfully…
Making friends with the ‘mysterious essence that never sleeps’ has played a big role in my life, continues to be a powerful focal lens and is an amazing adventure into the wilderness that lies within me and my surrounding unfolding worlds.
On my first year Master Key Experience application I wrote the following:
“My biggest challenge right now is…understanding and refining my core driving motive (my ‘life sentence’) and flexing it to create a lifetime adventure inspiring billions in a prosperous (abundance of what is held ideal in mind and dear to heart) way.”
During a recent sit…
I felt a deep tingling thrill & a shift from “… ‘inspires’ billions in a prosperous way…” to “…‘nurtures’ billions in a prosperous way…”. Every passing moment immerses me deeper into this. Moving from visionary to the architecture of creating the vision, marks a definite transition & understanding how my brain & emotions affect my body, trains my brain to find and know my mind.
With the benefit of insight into my hindsight, I gently smile at how I was falling into the endless trap of rehashing a significantly ‘remastered’ version of my current life in my head. Drat & bother, & at the same time – wonder of wonders!
As the world of illusions around and in me tears apart masquerading realities, it’s generating a tenderness at the wrenching points; at times, the very core of me.
Tender, oh so exquisitely tender, is my soul in change as I realise the deeper story in my heart.
It’s time to treasure-hunt that deeper story & stillness holds the key. This calls for a massive ‘de-frag’ of unnecessary energy expenditure and a deeper dive into the hunt for sacrifices I can trade for Still-time.
The Silence in Still-time transcends the physical & is:
space for thinking…
winging it in the wisdom of my stillness…
My life is for giving and living in that gift.
In Alice in Wonderland, the Queen scoffed at the notion of impossible. This week, I’ll adopt her strategy for a week and think 6 impossible things before breakfast, opening to possibilities and magic everywhere.
This week’s experiment for me is for me to adopt an attitude of welcoming all possibilities, give each of them a shape and look for the key/hidden open door within that quality to unlock the sleeping power and bridge to my goal linked with each of the shapes…
Every single person who comes into my path is a messenger… a sacred messenger. It’s time to listen, take some great notes & activate them…
Even though fear may show up trying to be:
False Events Appearing Real, complete with its ‘terror shut-down fight/flight potentiality’, & powerful in-my-face triggers,
I am opting for:
Fantastic Events/Emotions Approaching Reality,
I am the author of my own life.
Knowledge doesn’t apply itself, I do
and it’s never too late to replace the stories I tell myself and the world,
start that new chapter,
write that twist in my plot….
infinitely better than going plotless…
or flip to a completely different landscape.
I Whistle the Tune!
Welcoming all possibilities is about:
- the ideas that never existed until everyone/thing enters the room & focuses together…
- opening to that emergent mysterious force.
- getting over myself and realising I am surrounded by miracles everywhere…
- adopting the “Albert Einstein stance-there are only 2 ways to live life…”
either as though nothing is a miracle …
you guessed it!
The act of grace that bursts the bubble…
live as though everything is a miracle…
doing it now…
I woke up this morning excited,
with tears in my eyes, so deeply grateful,
like bubbling wellsprings of joy,
I felt life forgiving,
living in the gift,
& every other part of that symphonic tapestry..
including you !
I am taking into my sits: a seed embracing its future-flourishing entails unravelling & destruction of its seed-coat. (An outsider’s viewpoint of that initial unravelling seed-covering sees it as devastation)
What I’m doing: refining my DMP- diving deeper & writing some more of my 1000yr plan (it’s in phases)
What I’m giving: drafting my next 5yr giving legacy-($, mentoring, resources, connections, focused sits), a 2021MKE scholarship
What I’m learning about: exploring shadow trauma archetype and refusal of the return in the hero’s journey
De-frag Question I’m asking myself: where in my life am I running stories from external sources or conditioning? – working with, wondering, exploring, dampening my ‘opinions narrative’, coaxing it (my dorso lateral pre-frontal cortex) into having a ‘lie down’ and ‘zipping’ so I can listen to my world whispering to me ..
I love listening to my own voice read by Definite Major Purpose (DMP), movie trailer and press release interviews. My magic shapes on the dashboard of my car glisten into the windscreen, as my DMP & I coalesce when I am driving.
Every step of my daily walks immerses me into my extraordinary unfolding dharma.
My sub-conscious, the wonderful ever-wakeful mysterious essence, peacefully cocoons me quietly drifting into my sleep, a sacred space of deep rejuvenating rest, nurturing me gently into the world I am becoming. She is unmoving, quietly still and always there for me, during my sits, day or night.
I greet this day with love in my heart, and I walk this world in open wonder of the magic of the space unfolding around me…
including you !
I wish you a magnificent magical day full of the beauty of your unfolding manifesting DMP xx
