Honor the other person's dreams. Understand what they want to achieve and then help them do it.
moving through a dust storm, where is the advent?
"how did you learn to make that quilting knot? That is so cool" I said.
"You taught me." he said.
How many things do we not remember ourselves doing, saying, being? Or what are we holding against ourselves because of such., that keep us from taking the next step, expressing ourselves more fully.
I am exploring expectations, how that energy comes at me, unconsciously and then how I also put that out into situations. Argh, what a subtle lesson. Because time is so fast now, no time, this is practically simultaneously, back to back, one wing then the other. With two wings we fly.
Then I see a quote on my shelf. "let go obsessions about rules, details and fears of not doing things perfectly.
I like to remind myself that we are all co-creating - every moment is a new choice, fresh. We are all doing the best we can. If I hold this knowledge in my heart ...start the day here - with compassion.
Several years ago, I was inspired to make a colorful hat, I made it and called it a paradigm hat. A paradigm is world view we look through - where we are in agreement to see things a particular way.
Then I fell down and broke my crown
What is that nursery rhythm? Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after...
to blame anyone, including myself. We are all doing the best we can with the understanding, knowledge, and awareness we have. " Louise Hay
I found this quote hit the nail on the head after I struggled all day to discover new perception of an experience I had on Thanksgiving. I was realllllllllllllllllly in the blame game of someone else's behavior being hurtful to me. I sloshed it around my heart and mind, convinced I was right. I even got others to agree.
I thought "this is the end of the relationship"
I remembered a teacher once said, when you are not getting along with someone, it is time to look within. I followed the hurt, it swelled to anger, then pride, abandonment...where was I letting this bother me, giving my power to it. My 5 year old- being told she was not good enough...she believed it. I can choose anew. That was just someone having their opinion...
I didn't realize I was blaming.
Gosh, I forgave myself.
After doing several more imaginary cartwheels and flips through my deck of Louise Hay, this card said it all.
Thank you thank you Louise for being a guide in peace creating.
I am noticing being a bit spacey and anxious, dissociated and judgement about communicating in different dimensions then not being so able to be in the mundane. Hum. I took a walk and the oak tree on the parkway caught my eye.
She is fully leaved, all brown. All the other trees are naked. Imagine this, I can not get the picture to upload.
So dear oak tree what are you saying?
It is my nature to keep your leaves on, it is not about that I can't let go like all the other trees. I don't compare where I am, there is no hurry, after all where are we going anyway! I have seen so much and have the big picture, endurance to be with all the weather, knowing it is just a blip on my screen, a magnitude of information resides below the surface, not of the breezes, although it is a breath of fresh air reminding that this too shall pass, solidly confident in the growth and change, not bewildered, I have true staying power, of timelessness, here and now.
Thank you for the reminder dear old friend. Sometimes I get ungrounded. Today It looked like I was on different tectonic plates one sliding this way, another that. Slip and slide.
Maybe you are learning to redefine what your sense of your grounding, your rootedness. When you were a child you were so at ease sliding along on the slip and slide, it was just fun to crash into another and bounce off. No responsibility, just play, laughter and so much love always.
I like that
SECURE IN THE WORLD
"In your deepest Being, you are secure and safe. You are whole and complete, and harmoniously connected to everything.
Outside of your deepest Being, it seems that there is plenty of conflict. Misunderstanding, resentment, and violence abound in the news. In relationships too, insecurity and distrust lead to fear, embarrassment, loss and anger.
The challenge is to establish yourself in the peace and stability of your True Self. Then to come from that secure, loving place out into engaging the world. Extending that natural trust, sharing that generosity of spirit, contributing the safety you feel in your center to strengthen those around you.
If you can get deeply in touch with the peace of who you are, you become a resource for peace in the world. " Jeff Linzer
-That last sentence is the lead-in to a series of free tele-meditations I am offering every Sunday evening at 7pm Mountain time thru January 3
You are the light of the world, I help you to experience that, know more the peace within, I lead a guided meditation, where-in I am looking clairvoyantly at who you are as a soul which gives you space to be. It is simple and fun. In a group, it is very powerful, we all share, connect and celebrate our limitlessness as the Souls we are.
( details below) You can participate in the comfort of your own home, in a quiet chair for about 40 minutes. (There will also be a recording if you miss)
MOMENT BY MOMENT, HERE TO SHARE.
This blog is one way I share my self expression, My system of well-being is based on what is showing up in the body, right now. I am an appreciator, having infinite conversations with flowers, souls, trees...
