Allowing :: Climate Change

dock_water

The most important component to success is … Being Ready! Many other great minds have considered and expounded upon this venerated topic from the angle of preparation, preparing or preparedness. They speak of books to read, education to receive, business plans to write or relationships to cultivate. Today, i introduce you to the easier angle (which is no angle, at all): Allowing!

Allowing by definition requires NO preparation. It is the antithesis of preparation. It is incongruous to strategize, plan or prepare for Allowing. While, at the same time we readily admit  that hindsight may reveal to you a process which through a neophyte’s prism might seem separately interlinked experiences which form as a chain of preparation.

To gain greater clarity, let us consider for a moment RECEIVING. It is often discussed as a two step process: believe and receive. The Art of Thrival teaches that the process is short-circuited when we fail to consider the role of FAITH as integral and concomitant to the process.

FAITH is the attitude one brings in order to exhibit the BELIEF necessary to RECEIVE or physically manifest a dream/thought/whisper/prayer. Think of it as a trinity. All in one and one in all.

Imagine water! FAITH is water in vapor form, BELIEF is water in liquid form and RECEIVE is water in frozen form. All exist as the same element, taking on different forms, textures and definitions depending on environmental conditions. It is only in the frozen form that the human eye can witness all three states at once. Yet, they were there all the time… existing as infinite possibilities.

Now consider for a moment, the petri dish/culture as your human experience. environment… it’s a conversation better had in the comfort of kindred spirits sharing in the experience of one of our Perfect :: the Revolution workshops or our progressive Art of Thrival weekend retreats.  Suffice to say, the moment in which you allow that water IS, you are then able to manipulate, manifest and witness the astounding possibilities that were there all the time. You are the Climate Change to which your world responds and takes form.  Your feelings are both themometer and thermostatAllowing is your highest state of readiness, therefore your greatest tool and vehicle to your success.

We look forward to sharing in the building of your bridge from dream to reality, from wish to actuality, from desire to manifestation.

Sometimes, You Go All In

There’s a concept i often speak of in reference to intentionality or LIFE on Purpose that i call being completely present in the moment.  Recently, i was called to reflect on the many and varied ways that i have come to experience this over my short and expansive LIFE journey.

I grew up in the Gospel Church… which is not to be confused with nor compared to traditional Christianity by American standards.  As i watched a YouTube video shared with me by a friend, i recalled the instances of an OVERWHELMING suddenness of presence in which i felt completely and utterly removed from the external stimuli, yet was simultaneously at ONE with all of the sounds, actions and experiences not only in my immediate surroundings… but rather, i felt connected in an infinite way to every creature, being and breath on the planet.

Over the years i’ve had other similar experiences in totally different environs and circumstances, which has led me to a broader appreciation of the phenomenon.  Yet, the consistent theme and memory that burned in me as i watched this video was the irresistible, irrepressible, irrefutable urge to Just Go All In! I have and continue to pursue a course of growth ,wherein i am able to command my entree into those portals of joy, rather than stumbling aimlessly, wistfully and blindly for the perchance encounter with the moment once again.  This i call LIFE (Living In Full Enjoyment) practiced through the Art of Thrival.  No matter how you choose to get there, the rush and subsequent call to return to the  moment again and again… is REAL.

Klik on the pic to experience the video that got me remembering again…  Sometimes You Just Gotta Go All In!

I seem to recall being in the choir when this song came out.  I recall the choir director Karen Daugherty taking us to another level with her impassioned urgings and vocalizations.  She was awesome, it was good times.  (If you remember who sang the lead comment me back ~ I think it was Karen!)

Your Ship Has Finally Come!

Your ship has come in at the very moment you decide that you are perfect … yet, not complete.

Like attracts like. The pleasing thoughts of your perfection (and perfecting) will attract to them (and you) more wonderful and intentional events and opportunities of like energy (pleasing).  Don’t wait to SEE things as you would like them to be.  Attract goodness to you, by FINDING things to feel good about , even in the midst of  your world’s turmoil and chaos.

BE SURE TO ENJOY THE INSPIRATION BEHIND EACH PIC (make sure and click).

2Day I Celebrate Adventure

adventure24

Cheers to the people who take FUN and Adventure seriously while laughing all the way (klik pic on the left to see what i mean)! They may not have a snazzy video dance, but i’ve also got luv for my equally insane, but great folks at Moosejaw, too! FUN insists that FUN (Frequent Use Necessary) be the rallying cry of our existence.

Go on, have at it you daredevil, deliberate creators of your reality.  Make a plan to laugh until it hurts, to sing until you cry and to sail into each horizon with a smile of knowing, a tear of gratitude and the furrowed contentment of a child locked in hope for tomorrow’s unfolding.  I’ll meet you in the doing!

The Truth… About Hurt

just_relax

Truth is… no one can hurt you without your permission… (even then, it isn’t so much them hurting us, as it is us finding the hurt in the happenings) and the only reason we give them permission is so that we can see the contrast between what we want and what we don’t want in our lives. Then, if we’re committed to LIFE (Living In Full Enjoyment) we are perfectly situated to give ALL of our energy and attention to that which we have clearly identified that we want for our LIFE journey.

In this we can be grateful and appreciative of the asshole to whom we gave permission to give us such wonderfully stark contrasts, which leads us to bathe in  the serenity of superbly clarifying moments. This allowed us an opportunity to refocus and rededicate ourselves to following our bliss!  Truth is… it’s just our means to our joyous ends (manifestations).

IMHO, a pivotal determination in deliberate creation!
