Choose to Travel Light

il_340x270.927314091_fancIn order for our highest wishes to be fulfilled, we must first begin to accept things as they are, fully, completely…as they are. Wonderful creative genius minds developed via this deed. It is a deed.

it is a deed done for ourselves. Following this deed, we will then have surrendered to the moment & the acceptance of its fruits & feelings. We may indeed prefer something a bit more luxurious or meaningful, but, that is all to come if we accept the now. Accepting the now as beautifully flawed as it may be…is a prerequisite to any & all fortunate circumstances that lie ahead.

Furthermore, in doing so, we will then also have peace of mind. Turbulent anxiety for things to change will dissolve, and  words & thoughts made of  faith in goodness granted will reign supreme.

There is no such thing as suffering or pain. We may be human, as they say…but we are spiritual beings first and foremost. We are not destined to feel distress, disillusionment or darkness…this is only an idea man has created through linear time.

It is now…time…to walk the walk  with a stride of freedom, severing any past preconceived notions that may have essentially kept us cold, alone, or stranded in a place of sorrow or pain. Nothing is more untrue as dread & disdain, in the light of God.

So, let us come together now, & rejoice in the true nature of being alive on Earth. Our true nature & most beneficial pursuit & purpose we have, is to become the free beings we were meant to be. I’m ok with that. It’s what we all want anyway, essentially.

True freedom doesn’t interrupt our home life, or professional life, or friendships or romances or travel plans. It doesn’t change our family dynamic or the toppings we like on our pizza. But what it does change is the way we perceive all of these things. The way we react, respond, and deal with any & all changes that occur within our circle. We may now have the where with all to choose to behave in a manner that is positive, rather than negative no matter what the issue may appear to be. What’s the worst that can happen? Does it really matter that much? That we need to overreact, fret, worry & fear the outcome or circumstance or person? No Sir, no Ma’am. Period.

My motto today is: “React responsibly, respond accordingly.”

Nothing is too monstrous to fear. We always have a choice. That choice includes an ability to rise above the emotional jerking around of it, & make an educated deliberate decision to not allow it to dictate our inner stability, taint our grace, haunt our healing, taunt our trust, tear down our confidence, poison our prosperity or falsify our faith.

Let us keep in mind, folks…tomorrow is another day. We actually can wake up to a new day at any moment. But…we all know…”What a difference a day makes!”

At any rate, let us choose to know today, in the face of any annoyance, difficulty, challenge, painful experience, opposition or hardship….that we have the freedom to perceive it with a lighthearted awareness. This will instantly break down its predatorial power over us, and we will change then thereof the course of its frolick upon our landscape…its destiny to destroy us or the moment or break us down. Love does indeed conquer all. If to love our enemy means to change the way we react to adverse people or circumstances….then by all means…let us travel the high road…shall we?!

There is nothing deeper than the ability to feel. Feeling requires a conscious choice to have an affectionate connection to life & living. All the noise, static, confusion, distraction, or negativity that exists though, on the other hand, does not have to be considered if one does not wish to consider it. Our choice is our choice. Choice is a cool feature we own as humans. We get to choose everyday in every way, what we are thinking, giving attention to, or allowing ourselves to consider. If I allow myself to dwell too long on a thing that has outlived its usefulness with regard to resolution & closure, I will be then unconsciously choosing to hold on to the past. Holding on to anything too long, that has out lived its purpose, can be dangerous to our health & wellness. A person, a relationship, a memory, an idea, a goal, a dream, a fantasy, an expectation, a plan, a job, a personal program, a habit, a pattern, a material item, a desire, a disappointment, a loss, a death, an unexpected change or transition, an experience, an event, a trauma. All those things serve us for a time. It is our job to know when that time expires. For in being in tune with “the process” we then cultivate a keen ability for practicing the art of letting go at right perfect times. Not too soon, not too late. We intuitively know, when we have internalized it enough to move on… or… we know that we may have to unearth it more, to deal with it further, experience the emotions tied to it further, in order that we may be able to fully let it go. There is a fine line, between letting it go or just  burying it. It has  to be fully felt. It has to be heard. Let it make you scream & yell, wine & cry, bitch, complain or rant! Let it come out, all the way, and face it, head on, head strong, with sword & shield in hand. For only in doing so, do we allow it to live itself out of us until it’s gone.

It will have no more power. Why? Because we weren’t scared of facing it. We felt it, dealt with it, contended with all its unruly emotions, and instead of resisting it, we became a tree rooted firmly in the ground through its storm. We didn’t choose to bury it so it could then continue to have some kind of underlying secret power over us for as long as we let it chip away. Jabbing us with slurs and whispers of doubts & insecurities from its underground throne inside of us, where we nurse its existence with guilt, regret, fear or attachment. There is no way to possibly move forward in this life with a sense of security, if we are choosing to hold on to a thing that has outlived its purpose.

FYI, The “stuck past” doesn’t discriminate:) Today, let’s all choose to allow anything moving through our lives, to indeed move through. Fully, completely, until it’s all through, all out, and we ultimately proceed to escort its disruptive ass, out the damn door. For good. Forever. No matter how big or small its meddlesome butt may be….

Cause life is too short, to live in some form of denial, on any level. Rock it out! Whatever it is. And then keep going.

I am learning this skill…because at this stage of the game, I have no choice but to Shine on! Like a Crazy Diamond! Thanx, Gav, for that awesome chime in…..;) One of God’s greatest gifts to man is choice! But it is also, Friends….:) Old & new! Thank you for your presence in my life….

So grateful,
