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.

Your Ship Has Finally Come!

Royal-Denship-Princess-Mariana

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).

Breathe

Breathing LIFE into each moment, i discover the vastness of ME. This journey is truly one of exploration. There are beautifully elaborate corridors and out-of-the-way nooks that command the observer’s decisively shaping gaze. Revealed in the ribbon of time, there abounds open mystery.

The pondering of a query, yet formed… renews the vital flow.

Fun Begins Here!

Man on new motor trike

Along the road of LIFE (Living In Full Enjoyment), i came to BE … not someone, something or somewhere … just BE … just ME! That’s when the fun began.

The gentle man in the photo is neither rock star or reality show heart throb.  Yet, he is the envy and idol of millions across the globe.  His grand, yet simple accomplishment is revealed in his casual conversation about why he rides his evolutionary reverse-trike, Can-Am Spyder.  He offers two minor points for our consideration:  “It’s Fun and I can?”

So often, we go out of our way to confound the imbecile with the complexity of our passion for living, doing, being.  We drape ourselves in the euphonious plausibility of jargon and sayings.  To the chagrin of many, the joy of living remains an elusive chalice from  which drips the sanguine tears of a bleeding heart.

What does all of that mean?  KISS – keep it simple, silly!  Your simple is straight-forward and easily aligns itself with the comings and goings of your LIFE.  If it’s fun and you can … then DO, BE and HAVE! You deserve just such a LIFE.  LIFE on purpose … til death do we part!

It’s The Journey, Stoopid!

life highway signLeaving from your door each day you set out, ultimately to arrive home in the evening or morning from a day’s labor, errands, visits or the like. The unveiling of the “stuff in the middle” is neither assured nor inevitable. The details that spring upon you as the day unfolds, gives rise to anxiety, anger, frustration, fear, laughter, joy, hope, satisfaction and dissatisfaction or any combination of a broad range of emotional possibilities. At the end, you are home, as you had planned.

Upon reflection, you assess the day’s unfurling as worthwhile … at least enough to do it again the next day. The happenings of LIFE occur in between the known variables of origin and destination. Yet, so much attention of our society is focused on the evaluation of LIFE based on the perceived proximity to a destination. Through that logic, leaving from your origin (and ultimate destination, in this case) should probably be considered ill-advised, as your proximity to your destination increases, putting you further from your goal… home.

the journey unfoldsHaving stumbled upon this self-inflicted lunacy, I began to be intentionally irreverent and disrespectful with myself in private conversation with … of course, myself. Some time ago a politico coined a term; “It’s the economy stupid,” in addressing what is and should be the obvious and main talking point concern of that campaign. So, one morning as I meandered through yet another waking routine, I shocked myself into a state of “presence in the moment by declaring “It’s the journey, stoopid!”

I no longer leave the house to arrive, anywhere. I leave for the experience of the journey. Certainly, I have a general outline of exciting points and sites I’d like to experience and explore. Yet, moreover, I give myself to the fluidity of the unexpected, unplanned and most rewarding of gifts to be bestowed upon humanity … choice. I find God, the Source, the All, peace, serenity, joy and happiness in the daily drama and circumstance of the choice, made manifest in the minuscule shaping of a moment.

We offer for consideration, leave this moment for the full experience of another; an experience and growth that can only be known in the journey of your choice.

Keep It Movin’

Each Crisis reveals Opportunity

In times of crisis, it is easy and normal (in an abnormal sorta way) to become fixated on the pain and anguish of it all. The true uplift to each and all is made obvious through the shifting of perspective, hence perception. Changing one’s perspective or angle of incidence implies and requires motion… movement. As our continued progress brings us closer in alignment with our heart’s earnest desire for love, joy, peace, harmony and happiness, we are able to view each and every purported crisis in our LIFE as the abundantly abounding OPPORTUNITY that it truly is.

Beauty reveals her wonders to those who open their hearts to experience what their eyes behold.  Crisis and opportunity thrive as two sides of the same coin.

In all else stand

wattled_plover_maraIt is in the moment of trials and tribulation people like myself often choose to stay and frolic around rather than to retreat or run as fast as life will allow. It is in happiness we forget to find our solace or resting place. Far to often we find ourselves in that happiness, questioning the goodness thereof and in. We are guilty of failing to question the chaos and opting out rather than standing still in it.
I ponder over the scripture where the writer states “in all else stand and faint not”.

Why is that?

Was he really telling us to stand in times of chaos or was he telling us not to faint from fear or preposterous sights or surroundings? I know I am guilty of standing when I am in need of flight and fleeing when it is critical for me to stand.

It is on this day I will stand. I call unto me the ability to stand. I will stand in the happy, joyous, loving, and peace-filled moments and savor the flavor of LIFE… living in full enjoyment with the enrichment of knowing I am!

Today I celebrate the will to stand… in all else/happiness STAND!

Childlike expression

funny-monkey-5001

I allow my inner child to express the joys I feel.

I open up to the playground of LIFE that I may allow my inner child time to play, daily.

I enter each new moment, neither good or bad, as a child… eager to know, learn and truly experience the joys and/or pains of the moment.

Today I celebrate my childlike expression.

Sunny Side Up

sun-will-shine-brightAs I awaken out of the slumber by the glaring commitment of the sun; I stretch and rise.  I am reminded of the laws of the universe.  I am made once again aware of the law of attraction.  That which you set your mind to you shall achieve.  “What soever a man thinks,” does that ring a bell?

You see the sun is committed to rise and shine daily.

My first thought was that the sun is set to a committed schedule I can count on. Why am I not committed on a schedule of my life? Creating a business or designing a life’s plan requires dedication and commitment.  I have activated the desire, the will, the know-how, the plan but I have failed at the commitment.

I once was told that if I ever wanted to truly know the answer to life’s questions look around and see creation. My question the other day was “what am I doing wrong or not doing?”, as I walked the race track in the darkness. My answer came out of my slumber… commitment; the lack there of.

Today I shall ponder upon the sun. I shall bask in it’s commitment to the universe. Today I shall enjoy the example of the sun; as I set it up above the minor mishaps of the day.

Today I celebrate the sunny side of life. Today I rise up out of the slumber of meager existence. Today as I rise, I commit to my intentional participation in LIFE!

I Breathe

humpback_stellwagen_editpreview

I dare to breathe with intent.

I breathe in the fullness of opportunity and growth.

As I breathe; I inhale love, joy, hope,  and all there is that is truth.

I breathe with hope of the never ending ability to enjoy all LIFE has to offer.
