Neurology, memory in particular, continually amazes me. This morning while my body is physically located at my desk, ah, the illusion of 'thingness', my inner eyes are continually sweeping over yesterday's vistas.
Sitting here, my emotional body is spinning, my brain nattering away telling me to get on with my day. Even though I know I can get in the car and make the 30 minute journey pretty much any time I want, what’s happening is the same thing that happens when someone tells me 'Let go!' Like most of us, my first response is to clutch, holding on tighter!
The wisest part of me understands that the challenge is temporal, my experience affirming without a doubt that the past [passed], present and future are one, united in the flow of Time through space. Alas, that doesn’t keep me from confusing what was with what I want in this moment! Too often we mistake something as ‘secure’ when all it 'was' was a security blanket that kept us warm at some point in the past. Hanging on to such bits they too often become a shroud that's draped over us at as some point in time… the demise that comes with wasted time we spend wishing, hoping, shoulding or regretting, or worse, something that we wrap ourselves in at our funeral.
Today I once again surrender to Love and make the conscious decision to let my memories grow knowing that they sweeten as I do so. This progress ends the cuisinary kind of process and leads to rediscovering how much more there is to living, and yes, it sometimes feels like far more than I deserve.
Like this stone that the Flow placed soundly upon four rocks, today may you experience what it is to occupy the Zone of Authenticity and be deep in the Flow where meaning is generate. May you feel The Spirit of Consciousness embrace your body, heart, mind and spirit as you acce[t The Divine's invitation to play.
Only when we come down off our positions and engage in Love do we find the eternal Source of true transformation, and the Fountain of You overflows, renewable energy fuelling responsive acts of loving kindness.
