My five year old asked me yesterday what is inside our bodies. "A ghost?" And I didn't necessarily have a definitive answer for him ... One that he'd understand, and that is "truth."
I sometimes imagine standing at the threshold of a vast field of space. Stretching out before me is infinite possibility.
That's the awareness behind EVERYTHING. Every moment. Every contact. Every thought. Every feeling. It is all one.
You can become invisible ... so the only thing that is seen in your expression of beingness, is the Light of all that is. And in that invisibility there is peace, and power and purpose.
Peace is ALWAYS available. It never changes or alters, it is the foundational essence of what we are. We only need to embrace its presence within, to ALLOW it to flourish.
Guess what happens then? Nothing. The thought goes. I don't activate it further by dwelling on it, thus giving it momentum, I just let it go and I become present. "I am here. This is now."
As I was "walking" my heart rate down before I had to be home ... with 8 minutes to spare to take my daughter to middle school, I just felt this gratitude. I said to that "God Universe" space within me, "Thank you thank you thank you. I am grateful I can run, I am grateful the sun is shining, I am grateful I am continually sustained, and I am so grateful I see who I am. Thank you for helping me see."
The girl at the top of the tree didn't even really care or worry about anyone else and how "crazy" they thought she looked. She was so focused on her goals and her effort that what anyone else was doing was irrelevant. And so she kept sawing away, telling herself that her effort would produce good results, working at the branch in focus and then continuing forward to the next branch. Over and over, effort and determination ... never wavering. I stood at the bottom of the tree looking up at her. I had knowledge of BOTH mindsets. I understood the girl in the tree and her "way" and why she was doing it MORE than the people at the bottom of the tree ... to me, in the dream, those beneath the tree didn't see the whole picture. And yet, I was still at the bottom of the tree looking up.
Have you ever stayed up super late reading or doing a project because you LOVE it and just wanted to keep doing it, regardless of the time? Your focus is […]
