Slow Down

Patience is not my strong suit. There’s so much to do. Now is all there is. I don’t want to waste a minute of it. But instead of racing from one thing to another, what if what’s happening now, be it traffic, a computer glitch or even pain, is what’s supposed to be happening, contains something for me, something good and useful? The only way to know that is to slow down, open up and be mindful.

Seeds

What if all of life works the way seeds work? The acorn contains the mighty oak. The egg contains the chicken. The plant was in the seed before the seed was in the ground. What if, like the earth to the seed, we’re surrounded by a creative medium that nurtures, grows and manifests our habitual thinking, heartfelt dreams and life scripts? What if we understood this, took responsibility for the seeds we’re planting, planting only seeds that bless everyone and everything, get our bloated nothingness out of its way and allow the natural creative medium that surrounds us to do its thing? What if…?

No User’s Manual

 

We come with all these parts, but without instructions for how to assemble and use them.

We want answers; need maps; at least a ‘Quick Start’ guide.

But no such luck. The instructions are in the living, day by day, hour by hour.

There are no short cuts, not for the important things.

We just have to live it our and see what happens.

But intuition, mindfulness and being centered can help.

Missed Opportunity by Katha Pollitt

“When you consider that God could have commanded anything he wanted – anything – the Ten Commandments have got to rank as one of the great missed moral opportunities of all time. How different history would have been had he clearly and unmistakably forbidden war, tyranny, taking over other people’s countries, slavery, exploitation of workers, cruelty to children, wife beating, stoning, treating women – or anyone – as chattel or inferior beings.”

Better Thoughts = A Better Life.

Thinking about changing my entire mindset – my whole story – is daunting. But I don’t have to change the whole thing, just one thought at a time. That’s what mindfulness is – awareness of one thought at a time. Not judgment, awareness; then deciding if I want more of that kind of thinking or less.

We all have a story, but I am not my story. Self talk is crucial. Every thought counts. What the mind created, the mind can change. It isn’t how I started that counts, it’s how I  am now. But it is a wrestling match. Habits are strong. With mindfulness I can redirect and reframe. I can get off auto pilot. Why let my old story choose for me? 

I can do a real time thought audit – does this thought make me feel confident or crushed; priceless or worthless; limitless or limited; happy or sad; energized or drained. Remember, don’t believe everything you think and opinions don’t = facts.

The Growing Edge

What is mine to do? What have I come here to be? Every difficulty, pain, or challenge is an opportunity to find out, to connect to who I truly am. Something wants to come thru to change me. It often feels like a punishment, but it’s not. If I loosen up, stay with it, breathe into it, it will grow me.

What’s the hurry…Grassley? You guys left the slot Obama tried to fill empty for a year….

There is no expected pace for inner learning. What I need to learn comes when I need it. Repetition is not failure. I fall down whenever and as much as I need to ’till I learn what I have to learn. Knowing this helps.

Two kids talking: “Do you pray before eating?”

“No. We’re Italian. My mother knows how to cook.”

 

“I keep having a dream I’m a tailpipe. What does it mean?”

“You’re exhausted.”

 

“My wife thinks I’m too nosy.”

“How do you know?”

“She wrote it in her diary.”

 

“How does your dad like the new stair lift?”

“He says it drives him up the wall.”

Soul – Shift Happens

My soul doesn’t need saving, it needs expressing.

When I get my bloated nothingness – my ego – out of the way, all that’s left is soul – my reality as spirit. In those holy instants when rules, fears, and hopes are gone, seemingly empty, I’m really filled with the spacious bliss of all possibilities. Free, untethered and open, I’m available to creation and first cause. I don’t have to do what I always did and get what I always got. Things can be new, different, better. My soul is joyful, loving and wants to sing…if I get out of its way.

Test this. Simply pause, say ‘thank you’ for something (the more mundane the better) experience gratitude and feel the shift.

Did You Know?

Did You Know?

Right this minute, as you read this, members of the Trump Administration – Ryan Zinke, Betsy DeVoss, all the other Cabinet heads and the people working for them, are busy taking away Federal protections for clean air, water, racism and all the other things that have made America great. Right now, it’s happening right now, and the media are not adequately reporting it. In fact, last night the PBS Newshour spent nearly 20 minutes talking about the natives in Brazil, while more pollutants are being poured into the air. I looked for a comment section on the Newshour website, but couldn’t find one.

It’s not just PBS tho. They’re all not doing it. Is it too much to ask that the media from print to air, regularly review each one of the Trump Cabinet’s dismantling of our domestic foundations?  Maybe a weekly column or ten minutes a night? I hate to agree with the President, but there does seem to be some kind of conspiracy. Not the ones he loves. But the ones designed to keep us ignorant, docile and in the dark. Especially now, a few weeks before the midterms and with the Kavaneuh pending.

The Spiritual End

I’ve found that thinking of Life as a continuum with the formless – invisible and spiritual, at one end and form – the material and visible at the other, and working at the spiritual end gets better results because everything starts as an idea: It is done unto you as you believe; change your mind change your life; and we are one.  

At the spiritual end, giving and receiving are the same, to give is to receive. To strengthen ideas, I share them, give them away. Yet I still retain them. To learn, I merely open and receive. There’s no exchange, no sacrifice. This is how it works for all the important things: compassion, joy, love, beauty, friendship – to have a friend, be a friend. These are abundant, inexhaustible and freely available. I know this when I’m at the spiritual end of the continuum.

The continuum is flat, easy to move along from one end to the other. Not a pyramid with spiritual at the top and material at the bottom. When I’m mindful that I’m on a continuum, not a pyramid struggling to reach the top, I’m able to shift my thinking, my mental frame, move to the spiritual end and experience the reality of giving of my inexhaustible store of compassion, joy, love, beauty, friendship to have compassion, joy, love, beauty, friendship.

Information is not wisdom. The principles of aerodynamics have little to do with the experience of flying. We need it all: info, wisdom and experience. Too much of one makes us misshapen. Together they make us human and whole.
