Clarity is a fleeting pain in the ass. The prevailing winds change, clarity gently brushes against your cheek, then drifts on. So you better be ready for it or it may just pass you by like it never happened.
What do I believe? Getting clear here will help me move to the next level in my life, I am thinking. As long as I can remember I have always understood that I am you and you are me – that we are the same. Never studied a religion to learn this – it is part of me. I am skeptical about all beliefs in established systems, i.e., Religion. But I do value ownership of a personally derived belief system.
The big movement for me has been coming to a complete understanding that Love rules the universe. From this I understand that as life’s circumstances arise the only question I need ask is, “Does this serve me?” I am the liver of a life that serves this Life for the good and this life in turn serves me for the good. Life is a big Love snowball that way. And it all starts within me.
So now seems a good time to define things for myself. So here are a few ‘new rules’ for my new life. Please note: I have never been good at following rules, so setting rules down in writing does not necessarily mean they will be followed. There is always a catch – isn’t there?
1. Filter all things through your heart as it knows best.
2. Recognize Wonder as sacred as this is life affirming.
3. No more Toiling (not life affirming.)
4. All emotions are good messengers, especially the uncomfortable ones.
5. Carry your Mirth with you at all times, it is your Awareness Emergency kit
6. Always seek Truth over Illusion as freedom reigns there.
I am sure if I made a thorough study of world religions or philosophers throughout history these rules, or something like them, would show up everywhere. But these organically made personalized collection of tenets suit me perfectly – in the same way the sound of a laugh matches to a person. Your laugh is part of you. No other set of modulated tones will ever do. (BTW if you have never paid attention to the sound of your laugh, try it… pure ecstasy.)
Found within my heart, these tenets are the wind that fill my sails and give me direction. The boat, of course, is me. My body and personality are the physical mechanism by which I manifest. In this way I see my journey taking place and my heart’s desire coming true.
As for the direction and strength of the wind, i.e., the plan – that I have no part in. I surrender that to a higher vision fore I know my vision is far too limited. So instead I give up judgments and expectations. And I relinquish the need to know what tomorrow looks like. This affords all manner of gracious possibilities to form organically.
My job is to have an intention and to pay attention!
