How to focus on our next step… because the board keeps changing

There is such an inner desire to know where we are going and then take the steps to get there. We want to map out all of our steps to ensure the future that we desire.

But is this really possible? In theory, it sounds perfect. It sounds like we are intelligent, rational people making solid plans for an end result.

But what if that’s not how the world really works? What if the path isn’t so linear? What if the game board keeps changing? What if we aren’t that robotic? …


Turning a blind eye can have unexpected and wonderful results

Most of the time, we are clear that it’s good to be conscious and aware of what is going on in our lives all of the time. And for the most part, this is true. Allowing old painful patterns to repeat without awareness is a recipe for more pain. There are many aspects of our lives where consciousness is totally the answer.

But what happens if we stop watching so closely?

The Double-Slit Experiment

A couple of hundred years ago, scientists were trying to understand the nature of light. Was it a particle? Was it a wave? How did it move? …


Questioning the status quo

Sometimes it’s actually the opposite

Getting a higher education was the primary goal in school.
The “smart” kids went to University.
The “smart” kids got degrees.
But is this true?

What we have learned sometimes gets in the way of what is real.
We become invested in the titles and the prestige
And miss what is right before our eyes.

My greatest teachers are “uneducated” people.
They did not attend University.
Some did not finish high school.
Yet they are the wisest people I know.

They came to their wisdom from love, hardship, and courage. They all have a strong connection to God, the Infinite…

We hold all the power to be happy in our lives

We have so much choice… sometimes I think that this is one of our great journeys in this time.

It’s like we have been burdened with the belief that we are the victim of circumstances — of what others have chosen… and for some reason, we must just ride that wave until it is complete… like we have no choices at all. That we must just succumb.

But it just isn’t true.

Where do we find the courage?

Isn’t it strange how fear has shaped our lives? There are times when we want something, yet fear holds us back. Maybe we have always dreamed of something else, yet our fears said no.

And we listened.

Why is fear such a guiding principle? Why is it so powerful that it will stop us in our tracks and we will choose something else? Even though, there is only one truth.

And so, we make a different choice and…


POETRY

But every step is so important

Sometimes I get impatient
Wanting the world I know is coming
To be here now.

I don’t want to watch the skirmishes
Listen to the confusion
See the difficulties, the right-fighting
And the falsehoods.
I just want it to be over.

Then, yesterday I walked to my friend’s house
And I complained to myself about how far away she lived.
I was tired and wished she lived closer.

Then I realized how important
The walk, the journey was
And how much this was like
The journey we are on together in our world.

There are so many ideas to undo…


What if you knew when (and if) you would die?

I’m intrigued by Marcus’s prompt this week:

Imagine if you will, a world in which we accept that the date of death, but not the how, is determined before you were born. How would that “truth” affect you, your thinking, and actions?

I am adding the possibility that I don’t die at all… to see if there is a difference.

If I would live until I was 10 years old

As a child, part of our world is determined by the home we live in and what is expected of us from our parents. Imagine how different this might be?

How would my parents act? Would they be concerned about…
