Is it Really the End?

A photo by Kristopher Allison. unsplash.com/photos/6x90rJDo-WA

When you feel like you’ve come to the end, it only means you’ve come to the end of yourself.  You’ve come to the end of your limited experience and knowledge.  They can carry you no further.  Now you are in uncharted territory.

It’s terrifying.

When you get to the end of yourself, when you feel like you can’t go on any further because all is lost, you are experiencing a death so that the new you can be born to go places the old you could never go.

The new you is, of course, terrified, like a newborn moose still wobbly on its legs, and just learning to walk.  Continue reading

Intent of the Day: Peace in the Unknown

fullsizerender-1

Our intent is to be at peace with the unknown. That might be health. That might be timing. That might be your job or a relationship. The unknown can arrive at any time and rather than be scared of it, we intent to embrace it and walk forward in confidence.

You to? Here are three resources to help:

 

  • This video from eco-philosopher Joanna Macy about the importance of accepting the unknown as a key to success.Joanna Macy is imploring a generation to pursue health and repair of a highly damaged earth. Her encouragement? Not to be afraid of the unknown or the risk of failure in the pursuit of a lofty goal. It means that you are not guaranteed anything on the other side of a venture. Instead, you are led by purpose and passion. Make room for peace by accepting that you are not performing for an outcome.
  • This video from Mallika Chopra about pursuing purpose, peace and joy no matter what the circumstance.

    Whether you’re in sickness or health, good times or bad, richer or poorer, living a life of purpose, peace and joy is possible and so important. How to do  you get there when so much is unknown? Mallika Chopra shares 6 ways from her book Living with Intent. to tune your mind and actions.

How to Be As Patient As This Week’s New Moon

amazing-sky-amazing-sky-moon-clouds-1400x1050As the New Moon secretly peaks behind layers of darkness, there is often no external proof of her existence.

Yet full and heavy she rises, and full and heavy she sets.

There are within each of us new moons that have not yet become full moons. Projects, dreams, or aspirations that are not yet ready to be revealed to the world. They are not yet meant to be seen.

Just as with the moon, the vessel does not change.

The light changes.

As the light changes its angle and strength, more becomes visible. What was shadowed and murky before becomes clear and illuminated.

There is a peace and a beauty in the unfulfilled, the unimagined, the unrevealed, and the unknown. There can be no agenda because you don’t know where you are going.

Celebrate that today.
Celebrate being lost.
Celebrate being in the dark.
Celebrate being confused.

There is a purity and a deep joy that will rise when you stop trying to find your way and bathe in your present moment.

Bathe in the darkness. Bathe in the freedom of the unknown.

The light will reveal itself when it is time.

 

Trust, Being Calm and Living in the Unknown

"Trust comes from knowing that when we are in a good qigong state, which is the healthiest state of life, we should trust that everything that is going to happen will be a good thing”. Yuan Tze, Qi Gong Master

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WE GO

Since last year my life has been quite strange. After having had a massive shift in awareness around emotions, (ie, that we don’t actually need to experience negative emotions at all), and really experiencing from inside my body the reality of how the Qi of emotions damages the organs and drains energy, I’ve been integrating this new information (state) and living more than ever before in the unknown.

One of the biggest lessons I came away from the retreat with was to stay in a ‘calm, relaxed, natural and joyful state’ no matter what. In other words, not be attached to what is happening ‘out there’. After the retreat, I had my quietest month ever with clients; I put it down to Christmas, despite the fact that the year before was my busiest month ever.

The quiet continued into January, which I put down to New Zealand summer time, everyone’s on holiday etc… and then into February – by now I’m beginning to realize something is going on here. I considered looking for some other work but did not feel drawn to do so, and decided (again) to risk trusting that whatever I was doing was right. All the while, I was focusing on staying in a ‘calm, relaxed’ etc state, which most of the time I was managing to do.

In February I decided to contact my teacher for some advice, as things seemed to be so out of the ordinary. His advice was “Be careful that you don’t allow the temporary drop to affect your view and your attitude, especially to get worried or anxious.  These things can really work as negative information that will affect people’s decision to come to see you.  So it is important that you recognize the value of your work and have a very positive attitude.  Your positivity and confidence will put out positive information that will attract people”.

LESSONS IN TRUST

I also asked about the topic he covered on the first day of the retreat; about ‘trust’ and going to a deeper level of trust, and how when we get to the door there is a sentry there with a machine gun. His response was “When we try to move to a different level of Qigong state which is new and unfamiliar, the guard will be on alert and try to stop us from going there.  This is the pattern we all have – fear of the uncertainty or unknown. The trust comes from knowing that when we are in a good qigong state which is the healthiest state of life, we should trust that everything that is going to happen will be a good thing”.

This was the missing piece of information I had been looking for. As soon as I read it, I felt a wave of relief sweep over me.

“Oh my goodness, all I have to do is focus on staying in a calm, relaxed and natural state, and TRUST that even though I am completely in the unknown right now, only GOOD things can come because being calm and relaxed is the NATURAL state to be in. Ie, when I am calm and relaxed I am working with (rather than against) the laws of life and only good can come of this”.

(For any of you that are into the Abraham Hicks stuff, this seems to be the same as what they mean when they say “You’re only job is to stay in the vortex”).

I found it quite interesting to notice how my habit was to allow my work situation to control how I felt: eg, if a client rang up to book, I would feel good. And if a client rang up to cancel, or I had no clients, I would feel bad. And it occurred to me how much I was allowing external circumstances to dictate how I felt, ie, the attachment to whether I thought something was good or bad. So I decided even more to focus on not being affected by the outer circumstances and to just keep in a calm, natural state. (After all, let’s be honest, it does feel good doesn’t it?!)

MORE LESSONS IN TRUST

I also was beginning to feel that I was being pushed (not asked) by some part of me (the Universe / whatever you like to call it) to change direction and for the first time ever to create my own brand of health programs and workshops. This was pushing major self-value and self-doubt buttons in me. Despite the fact that I hardly had any money coming in and the old ‘voice in the head’ would come in and say “you ought to go and get a proper job, anything, whatever will pay the bills” etc, I felt it was the right thing to keep going with planning this new venture. I just kept practising staying in the calm, natural state.

I also happened to watch the DVD where Yuan Tze is talking to the new instructors about teaching others for the first time, and how doubt may come in. I was fascinated when he said “Feeling under-confident is the false you. You need to find the true self. Worries, under confidence and fear are your ego and show you are only concerned about yourself. Let go of worrying about yourself and instead direct your attention to people who need help.” ‘Fascinating’, I thought to myself, ‘my self-doubt is selfishness’.

This week was the quietest week yet – two clients, and then one cancelled. And yet I didn’t panic. For some strange reason I did not panic. I just kept on with the calm, relaxed natural state, coming to the conclusion that for the first time ever I would have to get a cash advance on my credit card to pay my rent. In 35 years of paying bills, this has never happened. In the past I would have panicked, stressed, been anxious, worked even harder…Instead, I took time to do my Qi Gong practice and stay calm, and quietly accepted that this was how it was going to be.

Then tonight, I came home and had to pay a bill online. And incredulously as I looked at my bank balance I noticed it had shot up overnight. An unexpected tax rebate. Wow, I thought, this stuff really works. Thanks Yuan Tze! May we all continually be inspired to live in harmony with the laws of life. Trust, trust, trust.Where’s your sentry, has he put his gun down?!

PS – In summary, these are the nuggets of information I am hoping to share by posting this blog:

  1. Life lessons do not come as a theoretical piece of information that we can simply understand intellectually and things will be different. Life brings us practical, hands-on lessons which we only ‘get’ by living the experience of that lesson. This can be a challenge until we learn to see the gift in the lesson.
  2. One of these lessons I feel is that we are being asked, even forced, to live in the unknown, which is really the present, the great mystery of life. This means we cannot be in the past with regret, resentment or anger, and we cannot be in the future with worry or doubt. We have to be solidly in the present. This requires:
  3. TRUST. Trusting ourselves and trusting life. Trusting that we are totally connected to all that is, we are all that is, and therefore everything has to be ok. This requires that we
  4. Follow our inner guidance, our intuition, and that we trust it. This requires a training of our inner guidance system, which I like to call our heart-mind and abdominal brain. This guidance does not come through the intellect, we just find that we do things without knowing why at a head level. Initially this will feel quite strange.
  5. Staying calm, relaxed, natural and joyful is both (a) our essential nature and (b) an essential practice if we want to be truly happy and at peace. This takes discipline, as the mind will want to rule. Again, it’s a matter of living from the heart and gut as well.
  6. Letting go of attachment to feelings, not just objects. As far as I can ascertain, this is one of the major lessons of the great sages, such as Patanjali in his yoga sutras. The lesson of not being attached or affected by anything that happens outside of us. In the coming years, if natural disasters and economic crisis are to continue, this is a very valuable skill.

Mystery: From Lightness to Darkness

I’m thinking of one of my favorite lines from one of my dearest poems: "You’re the unknown variable X and I’m searching for the reason Y the meeting of our eyes leaves me longing for my next high."  There’s an excitement, yet fear you feel when you’re not sure of the holdings of Tomorrow.  We would be comfortable if we had just enough light to see a glimpse of what lies ahead, but we dare not cheat ourselves of life’s pleasant surprises.

In that dark space, we sometimes lose ourselves in addition to losing our way.  We travel so deep into the wilderness that we are willing to do anything to accomplish or attain our now frantic desires.  This is a familiar space for us all  and these times are what gives our lives character.  How do we know how far we’ve come if there was no place to ascend from?

When I think of Ted Kennedy’s legacy and the dark days of his life, I know that he is a man, a Husband, a Father, a Brother, a Son, a Senator, an Activist, a Legend.  Even when the light no longer shines, he will always be Ted Kennedy.  Even when his adversaries criticize him for the scandals, the rumors, the family "curse", the cloud of death that surrounded him, he will remain in the fabric of America and its history.

It is my only hope that we see the irony in how our darkest days birth our brightest hours.  There are certain truths that we can not escape and these are what I have come to cherish about the resolve of the human Spirit.  We shall not tolerate darkness for too long, nor will we tolerate a violation of Civil Rights for too long, nor will we tolerate gender inferiority for too long, nor will we tolerate our voices not being heard for too long, nor will we tolerate the lack of quality healthcare for every American for too long.  And when we have had enough, may we remember the unwavering, unmovable Spirit of the late Ted Kennedy.

As we travel through the mysteries of Lightness and Darkness…..

May you rest well and know that your legacy lives today, tomorrow, always…..

Will ours?

TIME FOR  GOD                                                                                                   

 

 

 

Read only if you have time for God
Let me tell you, make sure you read all the way to the bottom. I almost deleted this email but I was blessed when I got to the end

image00110.gif

God, when I received this , I thought…

image0026.gif

I don’t have time for this….. And, this is really inappropriate during work.

image0036.gif

Then, I realized that this kind of thinking is…. Exactly, what has caused a lot of the problems in our world today.

image0043.gif

We try to keep God in church on Sunday morning…

image0051.gif

Maybe, Sunday night…

image0062.gif

And, the unlikely event of a midweek service.

 


We do like to have Him around during sickness….

image007.gif


However, we don’t have time, or room, for Him during work or play…

Because.. That’s the part of our lives we think… We can, and should, handle on our own.

 


image00911.jpg

May God forgive me for ever thinking…

That… There is a time or place where..

 


HE is not to be FIRST in my life.

We should always have time to remember all HE has done for us.

If, You aren’t ashamed to do this…


Please follow the directions.

 

Jesus said, ‘If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.’


image0125.jpg

Not ashamed?

Pass this on ONLY IF YOU MEAN IT!!

Yes, I do Love God.


image014.gif

HE is my source of existence and Savior.

image0154.jpg

He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I will be nothing. But, with Christ, HE strengthens me.

(Phil 4:13)

This is the simplest test.

GOD BLESS!

I pray, for everyone to be blessed by God in a way special for them.

There are Moments in Life when you Miss Someone So Much … Author Unknown

There are Moments in Life when you Miss Someone So Much … Author Unknown

 

There are moments in life when you miss someone
so much that you just want to pick them from

your dreams and hug them for real!

[]  

When the door of happiness closes, another opens;
But often times we look so long at the
Closed door that we don’t see the one,
Which has been opened for us

 
[] 

Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.
Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.

 
[] 

Dream what you want to dream;
Go where you want to go;
Be what you want to be,
Because you have only one life
And one chance to do all the things
You want to do.

 
[] 

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human and
Enough hope to make you happy.

 
[] 

The happiest of people don’t necessarily
Have the best of everything;
They just make the most of
Everything that comes along their way.

 
[] 

The brightest future will always
Be based on a forgotten past;
You can’t go forward in life until
You let go of your past failures and heartaches.

 
[] 

When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end,
You’ll also be smiling.

 
[] 

You may send this message to those people
Who mean something to you
To those who have touched your life in one way or another;
To those who make you smile when you really need it;
To those who make you see the
Brighter side of things when you are really down;
To those whose friendship you appreciate;
To those who are so meaningful in your life.

[]

Stay Happy without hurting sOmeBoDy!

 
[] 

Don’t count the years – count the memories.
