Turtle Love

For the past 9 months, I have been saving turtles.  Stopping to escort them to the side of the road, in the direction they are heading, with little regard for my personal safety on winding county roads.  All this time, never stopping to consider they may be trying to help me.

A couple weeks ago, I stopped for what I believe will be the last turtle of the season, and it finally clicked!  There was a lesson I had been missing all along.  Indeed, more than one …

The first was a reminder that I carry “home” with me wherever I go.  Discomfort that I may experience in any space, any crowd or situation, is simply because I have forgotten that my home is in me.  When I remember this, I find the comfort and security I need within my own state of being.

I learned to point in the direction I most wish to go, and not let anything stop me.  Also, to be open to receiving assistance when it comes.

Finally, sometimes I’ve just got to move my A$$!  Life is rushing past, and at any given moment things can change.  If there’s something in my heart to do, it doesn’t serve me to procrastinate.

There is a lesson to be learned from everything, if we choose to look at it with that perspective.  I’d like to thank my turtle friends for their friendly reminders.  I look forward to serving them again in the spring.

 

 

 

This Moment

Lately, I’ve been having a conversation with myself involving this moment.  For some reason, it has occurred to me (or finally sunk in) that this moment is the start.  The start of what?  EVERYTHING.

More specifically, I’m to the point where I feel that whatever has happened prior to this moment no longer has a hold on me, or me on it.  It took a while for me to get to this space, but I’m loving how it’s feeling!

See, everything before this moment has given me something.  Keep in mind, I’m making the choice to see this in a positive light.  I have already taken the time to sit with, and process fully, the darker stuff.  So, I’ve felt the pain, loss, anger, etc… and dealt with it to the best of my ability (which, fortunately, gets better every time).  But, now I CHOOSE to leave it where it belongs, in the past, and move forward from this moment with the gifts those challenges have given me.  Some of them are deeply imbedded in my being, like my ability to read people (which is a gift from experiencing violence).  Other gifts would be wisdom and knowledge gained by learning everything I could from the lessons I’ve experienced.  Have I learned everything?  Not yet …

So, right now, at this moment, I start.  Taking with me only the gifts, lessons, and wisdom I have gained through my experiences.  Looking forward, each moment.  And the best part is, I can make the same choice any moment I wish, from here on out.

And you can too.

Best wishes on your journey.

being human – introductory offer

i have become an expert at being human.  occasionally in the past i’ve used my humanity as an excuse for behaviors that would otherwise be deemed unacceptable.  i wasn’t accepting and honoring of myself. now, i use the tools i’ve learned over time to open the issues i once used to whitewash, and bring them into the light.  so, here i am … this human being … being what? well, human …

what does it mean to be human?  more than simply existing … it’s an experiential development of being … of uncovering, deeping, and expanding into awareness and connection.  walking outside and noticing existance to the degree where you feel birds are singing just to say hi to you, and you feel  you can almost see the grass and flowers grow.

being human means saying “here i am” in all of my varying degrees, good and bad … identifying them yet not willing to become identified by them.

i have finally come to a point of loving self-acceptance.  i hope you find yours too.

thoughts on consciousness

Consciousness is a choice, though most are not aware of this.  It is not an easy path, but a way of life.  Choosing to ask the questions under the questions and seeking the answers behind the answers, consciousness is about knowing all and choosing to love it as thoroughly as possible, all the while letting it go.  Some days are easier than others for this, when love flows freely through our being and we feel the interconnectedness of all things.  Then, there are days of restriction, fueled by lessons of the ego, where we unconsciously clamp down, grasping at life and limiting our world view.  This restriction comes, intensifying more and more until we allow ourselves to explode open into a release, signifying that this portion of the lesson is over and it’s time to integrate and become one with the beauty of our being again.  Those unable to release continue building pressure until they implode, causing further restriction and often damage to themselves energetically, physically, and emotionally.

Surrender is a hard lesson for most.  Our ego tries so hard to control and handle everything on its own, not trusting the state of grace that lies in the heart of the universe, which always gives us what we need and brings us back to center.  Often, it takes many hard lessons and the feeling of being beaten into the rocks by the surf before we relinquish, release, and allow the tide to carry us without struggling against it.  All struggle is based on fear.  Fear is what keeps us from being at one with our selves, at peace with the world, and from experiencing the full state of love.  Sadness, anger, lack all come from fear.  But, when we face these fears, digging deep into their truths, learning their lessons, and openly walking into them … that’s when we experience true liberation of the soul, the freedom of Being.
