I am in the midst of four days off I have been doing two OBE’s per day and having some really interesting adventures. See the novel experiment in the post below to get a taste. The fun of these adventures is that I feel more in touch with myself and my muse is fully activated. There is a sense of separation from the story of my life and yet other stories emerge. Maybe there are parallel planes of existence?
It is so easy to get caught up in the drama of life that you and it can actually feel real. That realness quickly dissolves when I put a dose of mindfulness into my thinking. With a little examination it become crystal clear that my thoughts are just thoughts and have little or no basis in reality. This clarity of my process seems so liberating at a number of levels.
If my story is just a story then I can change it. If my story isn’t real then I can watch it and not get caught up in it. Both of these ideas are not new but very freeing so I think I will adopt them as more real than what I previously thought. Maybe you and I can totally alter our perceptions by changing what we think?
Today is a paid holiday. I love paid holidays. But it is not a holiday I take off from being present or seeking growth because these activities make it even better. If I can get paid to pursue awareness and consciousness then I have a perfect job. Now I need to figure how to do this all the time. My mind is bubbling like a nice dark chocolate bread pudding ready to come out of the oven. Lots of sweet ideas and a taste for the extraordinary, that is what I am brewing up. Do you want to join me?
Let’s turn this week upside down or inside out so that we are not stuck in the groove of the familiar. Are you ready to rock? First I want to suggest that you stop by your local library or bookstore and pick up some new reading. You know what interests you but let’s put a different angle to it. You need to stir yourself up in some kind of way that will enhance your life.
Here are a few books I want to highly suggest to shift you to a more high powered gear. I am about consciousness and growing our connection to our potential and our higher nature so these books all have this flavor.
