Who Do You Know?

Relationships are funny things and often we think that it is all about us when in fact it is never about us.  It is about them, but not in the way you may think.  How well do you know your mother, sister, daughter or partner? 

Who are these people we spend our entire lives with?  Have they ever done something that shocked you or threw you off track?  Have they ever said something that had you questioning where those words came from?  I think we all have and the heart of the issue is simply that you have many people in your life, but whether you truly know them is doubtful.  The person you know is yourself.  Or at least that is the person you are attempting to get to know.  In the last blog we talked about relationships and today we are covering the ultimate relationship.  The one you have with yourself. 

Identity is as multifaceted as your life.  How we see ourselves is often very different than how others see you.  When we are young our self image is limited and we look to others to show us who we are.  Early childhood and early adulthood is often an exercise in musical chairs.  We try on many different roles, hang with many different groups, and try many different experiences in an attempt to discover who we truly are.  Where do I fit in?  Is often the question you ask yourself.  My question to you is this a fair question?  Are you supposed to “fit in” someplace like a puzzle?  Life can be puzzling I admit, but I really do not think it is about them. 

YOU are what it is all about.  How you see yourself is what matters, and you get to choose where you “fit in”.  Of course this is not an easy task and often takes all your life to find what is comfortable for you.  What if that person you wake up next to each morning, that person you share dinner with in the evening and the persons you grew up calling family are not who you thought they were.  What if they are simply a reflection of you?  No they are not you, but they do represent an important aspect of you.  Your partner is in your life because you are attracted to each other, not just physically, but intellectually and emotionally.  Your vibrational signatures are vibrating in harmony like the yin and yang balance each other or like poles on a magnet. 

I have discovered something miraculous about life,… you cannot get lost!  You can feel lost, you can believe that you are lost, you can even have others believe that you are lost, but ultimately you always get to where you were headed sooner or later. We have a GPS (God Possibility System) system built right in and it works for every aspect of your life.  Looking for the perfect relationship?  Listen to your heart and feel the answer.  Looking for the way home?  Intuition will guide you.  Looking to find out who you are?  Look to your partner, friends and family!  Let go, listen and Love.

Beyond Courage

What is courage and is it necessary when confronting a transition.   A transition is a change from one state, stage or condition to another, so as a person observes nature this process is constantly occurring at all levels of life.  Nature does not struggle, nor does it resist.  What is, is and that is OK.  When viewed through human eyes however all sorts of dramas emerge as we project ourselves into the “grand scheme of things”.  Are the caribou that traverse thousands of miles in the longest land migration on earth using courage to make their journey?  How about the tiny hummingbird that migrates from North America to South America and back again every year, do they use courage?  What about the largest living thing on earth the Sequoia tree, does it need courage to survive for up to 3 millennia? 

Courage as defined by Dictionary.com is “the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.”  The very definition is restricted to humans!  We are the Kings and Queens of fear for we seem to worship fear.  We make movies about it, write books to experience it, share it with each other through our stories and teach it through our actions.  It would seem that we are propagating fear in search of Courage, since courage is necessary to overcome fear.  To me this seems like a vicious cycle and is ultimately unnecessary.  Courage is not a trait that animals use, they simply respond to the urge to survive through stimulus/response. 

Transition is usually coupled with difficulty, danger and pain so we automatically assign courage as the trait that we use to face this challenge.  As conscious beings we make the choice to face transition without fear so thus we are being courageous.  If we let go of our human nature and approach things with animalistic responses our survival is assured, but without the egoic self satisfaction we gain from doing it consciously. 

Is courage necessary to transition, no it is not, however it is necessary to be our human selves operating from self awareness.  This self awareness is what puts us beyond all other creatures and to be aware that you are aware is even more satisfying. 

What if you were to take it to the next level and move beyond courage and face your transition with calm certainty and inner knowing?  Life then becomes as easy and enjoyable as watching a good movie.
