Be aware: the following words flowed from me and if you are not careful they might infect you with bigger possibilities and turn your inner light on. They are for you from the me that is not separate.
I am an ocean of consciousness.
As the rain pours down my separation joins with the stream.
I flow to the source.
I Am but I am not what I thought I was.
The wind carries me upward and away.
Sometimes the cosmic dust gets in my eyes
Into it all but a drop
Joining dissolving but still infinite and eternal
Awakening, then forgetting
Stepping bravely and then returning to the familiar
Outside, inside, everywhere
Stepping back for a look
Reaching with my heart, opening
Standing strong with what is right
Entering the mystery
Like a flock of birds in coordination
Inward, outward, nowhere
Stars of which I come
Big bang flashes the beginning
Now I run to leap out on the edge
I was, I am, I will be
Pure freedom is a wonderful song
Shall we dance and sing together
Words are such fun to explore, like painting a picture with orderly shapely marks too contained for an abstract painter but just right for the prose artist.
Where are you in this moment?
How are you being informed by your inner knowing?
Have you appreciated the beauty around you?
In the journey of awakening, the light comes on for glimpses of possibilities and if you lean into that light you can stretch the Ah-Ha for a lifetime. If instead the mind wanders out of the now, that light quickly fades into a buzz of the familiar.
Insight arises, opportunities present themselves and you can bath in them and allow them to soak into your spiritual membranes or be too busy to pay attention.
If you are willing to give this moment your full attention, you will open to the presents of the present.
Now feel the foot as it touches the floor, let that awareness sink deeply into the Earth Mother. Feel the now flowing with aliveness. Keep the foot awareness and the now stays in your lap.
Breathe, follow, breathe, follow, breathe follow.
The grace of the moment helps you find hope, heart, and the humility to realize you are but a drop in the ocean of consciousness, a grain of sand in the infinite universe but also contained within you is all consciousness and the entire ever-expanding universe.
I invite you to honor who you are and take the time to be mindful, to stretch yourself out into what is possible. The world needs you so much right now to be bold and rambunctious about life.
You are infinite in your nature yet you, as the rest of us do, argue for your limits. “Argue for your limits and they are yours,” from Illusions by Richard Bach.
You have been programmed since you were so small to believe in your limits. Now these beliefs run your life and they are not true. That is what is, but it doesn’t have to remain so. There is no blame but the loving acceptance of you as you are, reading this knowing there are greater possibilities in you waiting to be realized.
Now make a commitment to yourself, with all the courage of your heart and the determination of your higher mind, to be more fully your potential every day. In a year you will be a star that shines brightly on the stage of life and we will all be so grateful to you for being you.
In case you were wondering what The Inner Conditions for Happiness are: Be Present, find appreciation in the now, be at one with beauty, be creative, hold in your heart a sense of flourishing and fulfillment, be in positive mind, and serve others.
