More Life As A Race

Continuation from yesterday,

Sixth, Curiosity is the fuel which keeps us going.  Without it you will go nowhere!  My favorite character as a child is Curious George, the monkey in yellow.  If you have not seen these programs I suggest checking them out and even if you have revisit them from time to time.  The innocence of youth is a gift we need not loose.  Curiosity is a big part of this innocence.  Also do not equate innocence with ignorance; it is more accurate to say they are opposites!

Seventh, Go with the flow….  “Resistance is futile” (Star Trek).  “What you resist persists.” (Jung) What this means is to trust the flow of life and do what you must.  Blindly wandering the in dark is dangerous so it is important to find the flow (meaning) and go with it.  The truth of the matter is there is no meaning to life or more simply put, YOU are the meaning of life.  Your life, your creation!  No this does not contradict number 2, because God is all there is.  Your life is God expressing through you (flow).  This is also why nothing is either right or wrong, it is because it needs to be for the experience God is expressing though you.  The part which confuses us is Free Will.  You have both free will and destiny.  Life will unfold as it does and if you really need to experience something then you will eventually experience it.  Love and loss are examples we all seem to experience at some point in life, so learn to deal with them.  You can choose to avoid certain experiences such as fighting, but if “life” needs to experience it through you it will.  Resistance is what causes pain; the more resistance the more pain. Consider this when making your choices in life.

Eighth, Life itself is a relationship, but as humans we are most concerned with inter-relationships with loved ones.  Family is the first challenge we all face and then there is romance.  All I have mentioned prior applies here!  Just understand the world is a reflection of who you are and love is the answer.  While this is simple no one is saying it is easy.  Loving your family and close relations is like loving yourself!  Or it can be the opposite, so consider this carefully as you observe your relations.  Sometimes you will play the antagonist and sometimes the victim, follow the previous advice and all will work out.

Ninth, Take care of your body.  It is your vehicle for experiencing life and if you abuse it life will be cut short.  As we grow the adolescent years are the most challenging to the physical body, between puberty and all the adult challenges we face these years can be most difficult, but at the same time they can be the most rewarding.  You will test your limits and this is to be expected, just do so with caution.  Listen to your inner voice of reason.  This is the voice which is whispering, if you hear it loud and clear then do the opposite! (The ego is loud and demands to be heard, avoid this voice.  Instead get quiet and listen to the still small voice which is your Soul)

Lastly and in continuation of caring for your body understand that life responds to your thoughts about it, and not just your thoughts but those of the majority.  The majority of people believe eating healthy food makes you healthy, but I say having healthy thoughts makes you eat healthy food!  Your beliefs about what you do, including what you eat will determine the outcome.  It is literally possible to think yourself healthy!  Of course the best advice here is Ben Franklin’s saying, “All things in moderation”.  Alcohol is good for you in small doses, but if abused it will kill you.  Fried food on occasion is fine, but eating only fried food will slowly destroy your health.  Strive for balance, love your body, even or especially the peculiarities, and respect others choices to do the same.

Life As A Relay Race

Think of life as a relay race and you are nearing the end of the race.  What have you learned which is important to put in your baton?  Keeping it brief think of the top ten things you would make sure to pass along.  By thinking on this topic ahead of time, you will more fully appreciate your accomplishments and energize all of life.  The following is my baton….

Number one is to remember to breathe, consciously breathe, notice how the air fills your body and feel the energy as it invigorates each and every cell.  This process keeps you in the present moment and it is the secret to a healthy, happy life.

Secondly remember life is not about you.  Serving others is the greatest accomplishment any of us can make.  Giving is receiving!  Notice how you feel after helping a friend or giving a gift to a loved one.  Now you know what I speak of!

Third is to share your gifts (talents) by doing something you love.  Just making a living (working solely for money) is self-destructive!  Let your living make you or to say this another way, allow life to sustain you (Money is only one reward for your efforts).  Living is the rule not the exception.  The human body can go 30 days without food and up to a week without water.  Notice how life supports you and the experience just gets better and better!

Fourth, Feel your feelings!  Emotion is the fuel for manifestation (creating what you desire).  This is why fear is so powerful at attracting precisely what you do not want!  Is your desire at a passionate level?  Your desire for something must be greater than your fear of the opposite.  By facing the dark side (emotions) it clears these forces from your life.  It is as easy as turning a light on in a dark room.  Just realizing that you have your inner light to shine wherever you need it can make all the difference.  Shine your light Beloved!

Fifth, Question reality, always and all ways!  Things are often not what they seem, so do not judge.  It is not good or bad, it just is.  Accept this and life flows with ease.  My favorite quote on this topic is “All the worlds a stage and we are merely players” (Shakespeare).  Just because something is false does not mean it will go away and in fact it is the false things we must deal with first in order to find the truth.  Be willing to wade through the shit to reach the shore of truth.  The rewards are well worth it.

The next five will be in the following blog so stay tuned.

All The World Is A Stage

We have all heard the famous quote by William Shakespeare but have you really considered its meaning in your life?  Please read on and I will share my insights.

Each person you meet is playing a role just as any actor would do on stage or on camera.  This person brings personality to that role however it is still a role you as observer are creating.  Your thoughts, feelings and actions are the fuel for this creation and there is a delayed effect so that what you thought yesterday or last week is creating today…this varies.  With practice and intention you can reduce this time lag to seconds!

The time lag is for your own protection by the way.  We wouldn’t want you to kill your boss or rape your sister.  Not to stray too far here, I just need to point out that your thoughts are not yours!  Until you claim them that is.  You are sitting on the banks of a stream of consciousness and your fishing pole is extended.  You are catching thoughts by the second and each one has to be evaluated and either kept or discarded!  The mind is an incredible computer and crunches this data so fast you often do not even realize it is doing so.  Your conscious will can be utilized here to keep the thoughts you like and discard those which are not an expression of who you are?

Returning to the actors or persons in your life… they may change either by death, geography, marriage, or other circumstance.  Over the course of your life the individuals change, but the roles do not!  For example your aunt that inspired you as a youth shows up in your adult life as a dear friend who inspires and comforts you just as she did.  Or you find a father figure in a friend at work.  Getting the picture?

Certain archetypes exist in our life from time to time, so look closely at the people in your life whom you have daily interaction with.  Ask what role they play?  Have they always played this role?  Is someone else playing it now?  How do you interact with them?  For more on Archetypes please see this website.

Take the idea of archetypes to a broader level and see that your current life probably fits into a story line and when the entire span of your life is considered you may see a series of archetypal patterns emerge.  This is your evolutionary journey or your life lessons.

What this understanding has done for me is to make living a purposeful life easier as well as making it easier to love any person I meet in the first moment of introduction.  I immediately see that person as another member of the family and not only do I feel more comfortable but they do as well, because I am radiating Love!
