12/12 and the Magic of Moving On


Over a month ago, I had a dream-vision of coming out of a cushioned house, following a big bear-dog like man on a bicycle (yes, clearly that's logical), climbing up the steps of experience and jumping in to try something new, to do something I've never done before. Upon coming into waking consciousness, I heard the me that I was in that dream say "that was the best three months of my experience." It was a distinct thought I brought into waking consciousness with me, and I felt the real and full enjoyment I felt for having taken on something completely different.

And now, as I sit here staring at the picture in front of me, of a man, a dog and a bear, having just decided to move on from the weekly radio show I've been doing for three months, I smile at yet another envisioned preview and the feeling that it brought along with it to reveal to me of this exact moment a month in advance. What comes through it all is a feeling of appreciating the steps that effortlessly assemble themselves before me and dissolve to make place for something new. I don't like to do anything that doesn't give me a full serving of joy, because when I'm in joy, when I'm coming from a place of joy then that's the space I'm taking and inviting those listening and reading into. For me, it's about energy, it's always about energy.

One of the guests we had said something to the effect that in life, in your moments, you are either under the trampoline banging your head every time you try to leap, or you are on top of the trampoline leaping without bounds on how high you can go. I agree, if something feels like it's too tight of a box, whatever it is, then your being is saying, is telling you that you are ready to spread your wings.

I shift into change when it begins to turtle into my experience. I take steps without hesitation. Openly. Rejoicing. I trust those inner impulses, the petals of my own being pushing themselves out to unfold. I've come to trust the process so much, and I've come to recognize that all these temporary appearances in this magical field we call Life are designed to show us exactly what we're capable of. What are you capable of? Have you ever asked yourself? When I feel that internal shift, I know the steps in front of me are about to re-arrange themselves. And they effortlessly do.

Living is such a beautiful dance of trust and movement.

in so much Love,
♥k.

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.
