When You Can't Control It, What Then?
As I set here eating an amazing salad from my back yard, okay except for the avocado, all appears at ease. What could be wrong with this amazing bowl of deep dark greens and bright orange delicious nasturtiums crowning it? Nothing, yet applying that concept that all is fine to every aspect of life especially the ones that seem to present themselves as huge obstacles to our intrinsic happiness and security is much more of a challenge.
This year is going to give us a run for our money on that front. I remember Mitra saying this would be a year of the unexpected. Plans be gone. I didn't not think that meant my plans right? Ahhh yes mine and mine and those around me too. I could tell you details but it is about seeing the perfection in the imperfection. It is about seeing the vastness of the plan when our plans get upset and we follow the upset. It doesn't matter whose fault it looks like it is for there is no fault (except in the land of earthquakes) just follow the yellow brick road into the land of the true wizard.Find the Emerald City right within yourself.
Acceptance is what allows us to see what can come of change, seeming defeat, upset, not fair, why me etc. After some big plan got interrupted this week for me many other things opened up and then the bottom fell out and it turns out I was required to be here and not in London as I thought and planned.
Sometimes things are revealed very quickly and other times it takes lifetimes to see the whys. We always have the chance to see more deeply into what appears to be tragedy in all it\'s forms. How do we do that? Here is something simple that will help but only if you do it. It clears the head and leaves you with true knowing. Is that a good enough leadin to get you to try it at least 3 minutes but 11 best or go for 22 better than fretting and worrying right?
Wha Wha Hay Hay Wha Wha Hay Hay, Wha Wha Hay Hay Gurooooo Do it quickly and just a sip of breath between each chant. Don't worry if you have the pronunciation totally correct it will adjust itself or you can call me. I taught a workshop last weekend, was it really only last weekend in earth time? Yes. One woman said after this meditation. "I could have done this for hours. It was like I had come home" The great news is you can do it for hours or minutes. Turn off the TV or other distractions and make this your home base, your front page, check into this as often as facebook or twitter.
Checking in is very important. How often do you check in with yourself? Time to realize that this is the most important component of checking in. You get to check on the entire universe. It is always checking with us but we usually have so much going on we don't even pick up the calls or impulses. It requires a certain internal stillness to be able to resonate with all that is. Otherwise all we hear is our own agenda and everyone else who has put data into our brain and force field. Clear the data field and sit in the vastness that is your true, birth right, so you can get it right.
Be compassionate with the situations and all the people who are involved you never know when you may need them again. There is no such thing as throw away people. Act like everyone is pricelss even when deeply challenged. Kindness is the mantle you want to stay wrapped in forever. Wahe Guru
