When you woke up this morning, did you remember who you really are? Have you remembered yet today? If not, let me remind you, but first, S L O W L Y EXHALE ALL THE WAY, and then, S L O W L Y INHALE ALL THE WAY. There now, that’s better, isn’t it? ✨❤️✨ You are pure consciousness in a physical body standing on a tiny blue dot in the middle of infinite space. You are a single cell on that blue dot, a subatomic particle of the atom in which you live, and yet your consciousness is bigger than the universe. Can you open in awareness of this vastness? Can you feel out to the farthest reaches of space, can you sense into the urge to expand forever? Can you take on the awareness of a star, burning in your desire to express your light? Can you spin the way a planet spins, can you feel its mass, and can you sense the momentum it has attained in its embrace of the cosmic dance? And YOU, how about your embrace? You are the center of the universe, did you know that? You are, in this very second, entirely surrounded, held, seen, known, loved and cherished by the force that created you (and you can call it what you want!) You are sovereign in your center, holding the consciousness of the cosmos. Now that you’ve remembered that the entire universe is yours to command, what now will you do?
I breathed in your fragrance and I didn’t stop breathing. Now I am in a different dimension, constantly coupled with you. I care nothing of the world I left behind. This new world with you is all I’ve ever wanted.
When you decide to live in the mystery, nothing is predictable. One day goes smoothly, the next full of obstacles. When you decide to leave the safety of routine and give your life over to some greater purpose, only surrender and trust will do. It is a death of sorts… familiarity makes way for chaos, and this is a good thing. The moment your whole life falls apart, this is the beginning of your journey to realizing your fullest destiny. Take heart; there are others who have gone before you, you are not alone. Take a deep breath, walk to the edge and jump. You will grow wings and fly, you will be caught by some gigantic gentle hands, or you might be smashed to bits on the rocks below. Whatever happens, new life awaits… so don’t wait. Dive, dive into the mystery, and see what happens.
There is no losing or winning, just staying asleep or waking up. Every time I breathe consciously, I wake up a little bit more. I have more available to me in this moment, more to feel, and see, and touch, more to embody, embrace and become. I let the breath move through me. When I feel a difficult feeling, I ventilate it, and let it pass through too. Sometimes I don’t react to the feeling, I just breathe it. And I remember it’s not about losing or winning, but staying asleep or waking up. I choose to awaken.
My mind gets caught in the most current challenge. Around and around in a circle it goes, trying to figure it all out. But what if it isn’t meant to be figured out? What if it’s meant to be lived? What if it were enough to just make it through this day, with a body, mind, heart and spirit all seeking integration? What if I could breathe deeply, relax into this moment, and trust the unfolding of my experience, allowing the answers to be revealed when the time is right?
