What a privilege and blessing this life experience is.
For me, its all those little boxes – those places I put boundaries around myself – all those roles and titles. All of those artificial boundaries, by their very nature become limiting. I have been working hard on removing all boundaries and merging into the one that remains. As a drop is part of the ocean, the ocean is part of the drop.
That “al dente” comes from waiting just the right amount of time.
That love is an excellent lubricant to letting go.
Gratitude – which is always an outward bound expression and not about self. In fact, it is self-less.
To live in an atmosphere of light, love and laughter.
That the prerequisite to deepening and expanding my experience is deepening and expanding my awareness.
In all honesty, I think I still have a lot of work to do here without creating visions for the rest of the world. Maybe once I blossom.
Thankfully, it is easy to find if you choose to look. It is in abundance – the smiles, the freely given assistance, picking up litter instead of stepping over it – and my all time favourite, stopping to pat a dog passing by.
My spiritual and life practices. I have been reflecting on my journey across a range of topics lately and started a series of short videos called “Deep Thinking” which I record in my car when driving to work each day. I am enjoying the expression of these thoughts out loud.
When recovering from natural disasters such as bush fire, floods and cyclones.
If I am not this body and not even this mind, then who am I?
By paying attention to the details as it is often the small things that make big differences.
Undertake a deep internal inquiry to identify those non-negotiable principles for this life – not what someone else says, but what emerges from the silence and stillness for this life. Then, show up every day living them 100% – but not in an unbending rigid way, but flowing like the branches of the willow on the riverbank. Gracefully, purposefully and with ease.
Be in flow.
For it to be an embodied practice – not just regurgitation of information. For actions to be guided by my inner core and Truth, not the superficial mind and popular opinion. To pay attention to the subtle.
In a world fascinated with gross shock and awe acts, my focus will remain on the subtle and the quiet. That is where I think the most important herbs and spices of life are.
By siting with it in silence and stillness.
Left foot, right foot and practice no matter what.
That at the core of my happiness is a vital energy that I am able to cultivate. It is an invigoration of my very life energy and has little to do with what happens in the material world.
From the other side of the world, it seems that project America is in the grip of a dark period – and I fear, with the possibility of worse to come. It will be through your strength and dedication that light will shine brightly. Know you are not alone at this time.
