“If we are brave enough to find the hidden positive intention within the rubble of the things that we are struggling with, we can unhook the anchors that tie us to them”.
So I’m pulling into the parking lot at the grocery store – and at the right side of the crosswalk is a father and 4 year old daughter, waiting to cross. I stop and motion to the dad – go ahead. He nods back thanks, takes her hand and they start across.
She was a star. She’d been watching this transpire and when she saw me motion they should go .. she lit up.
As they crossed in front of my car she kept peeking at me … until finally when they got to the driver’s side she turned, and with a huge grin, in the cutest 4 year old voice ever, said (at fine volume:),
“Thank you for letting us cr-o-o-o-oss!”.
(omg!) …. “my pleasure”
The dad smiled. my heart melted, she waved, they walked on and wouldn’t it be nice if pedestrian encounters were kinda like that more often. It gave the nicest vibe to rest of the evening.
… Out of the mouth of babes 🙂
One of the most important things we can ever do is to get out from under our own bullsh*t.
I just read this in a Mike Dooley TUT email. There was “something about it” …
There are no tests, but the unexpected circumstances you’ve created are “inviting” you to discover the truth about how powerful you really are, how far you can reach, and all that you can have; to remember that you are of God, adored, and fully capable of creating fantastic transformations in every area of your life.
This is fun …
I go outside and stand barefoot on the dirt.
Just standing there and start getting still.
Things in general begin to settle.
Typically my eyes will close on their own.
Once the sounds of the birds have my attention more than my mental chatter,
I invite the Light of Everything to come into my chakras,
starting at the Crown, down through each, to the Root.
When my eyes open I take a moment for Gratitude, enjoy whatever might have surfaced during the process, and put on my footwear du jour.
Then back into the day …
Something happened earlier that got me irritated. After calming down I asked God, “What should I do when that happens? I really don’t like being that way any more”. The reply came, “Keep your attention with Me, not on the circumstance. If I get annoyed, then you can get annoyed if you want. If I don’t …. you don’t”.
Every now and then I’ll have one of those maximum profound meditations where the walls all come down – i and my Soul unite in the Radiance – and Our Connection in All-That-Is thoroughly permeates. I Remember, am immersed in and completely a part of – the Freedom, Love, Timeless Magnificence and Limitless, mindboggling Ineffable Wonder of Being. i.e. – Everything that seldom gets attention in the zoom of earthly day-to-day.
For some reason or other, Earthworld world has that, “oh yeah!” challenge to it and will try to obliterate this Remembering asap. Can’t have a bunch of enlightened souls walking around, that would screw up everything! It can come in any form, because, whatever-that-thing-is knows where all the buttons are. And the perfect ways to push them. I don’t know who’s idea that was, but, as history shows, it works very effectively.
Anyway, after one of those too too rare and intense experiences, I’m solidly back with It All for a while. And can surf pretty much any energy, unruffled, with a smile and happily objective understanding. (song) We.. Are .. Fam-i-ly. Hooked – up .. blended in. Feels great. As I once heard Gomez Addams say – “Its indescribable. Let me tell you about it”.
Then – as it always does – Earthlife will come up with something extra special, custom designed to rattle my cage and re-veil this always available Wonderfulness. It could be anything – but a good percentage of the time – its delivered via my wife (that it uses our loved ones for this mission is kind of cheating, but, there it is). She can be an unwitting (I think?) and excellent spokesperson for the cosmic zinger.
So, do I continue as Enlightened One in The Radiance? Or, react as the collection of temporal tendencies I’ve stored along the way that from ego’s perspective i call ‘me’?
The choice, since I did decide to take this mission, can be mine.
Thank you Honey ~
