All too often, we forget about the great achievements in our lives and focus on the shifts that occur as a result of these achievements, which some times to the INNER CRITIC in our heads appear as failures, when in fact they are temporary adjustments physically or emotionally that to the unseen eye are necessary for our survival and success of the new achievement.
How can you become your best self? You work on this objective as you are pushed and prodded by parents, teachers, clergy, employers, and most importantly you. As you strive to discover a solution and charge toward accomplishing this goal, you may end up feeling no closer to becoming your best self then when you began. Let’s face it, you live in a world that requires being the best partner, parent, friend, co-worker, weekend warrior, or anything else that you may be doing in your daily life. And, you may often feel disappointed if you are unable to achieve this goal in everything that you do.
Feeling is a powerful life force, yet misunderstood and misinterpreted. People tend to look at those who can express their feelings as soft, weak, new age silly or just plain emotional. Society tends to be a guilty party. Men don’t cry. Why not? Just some stupid stereotypes.
Become Who You Are. . I love the fact that each day I am choosing to BECOME whatever I want! .
You might be tempted to call me crazy… and you most certainly would not be the first… but today I can declare this truth loud and clear because I understand that a life plays out only as we choose. And we make hundreds, if not thousands of choices every single day. It is the accumulation of these choices that dictate who, how and what we have become. Right here, right now.
We are all BEings not doings. .
It is time to be true to you, to BEcome who you truly are. .
We are all born perfect; it is outside influences that change us when we try to fit in to what is called “normal”. . What is “normal”? . Normal is what is usual for you.
FEEL.. The word itself brings that shiver of delight or dread to the soul… what do you feel? How do you feel? What does it feel like? So very many parts to this extraordinary word… .
This themed article is indeed difficult, but yet very important for me to write – this past few weeks have been a tumultuous ride of many, many deep feelings…not the least of which have to do with our recent loss – On Mar 17, 2015 our beloved fur faery Deuteronomy “aka Dude” made the journey cross the Rainbow Bridge to Summerland… he was to enter his 12th year in May this year.
There are two things that make up a person’s way of being in the world – who that person really is and the stories told about who they are. The stories come from many different places including the mind of the person in question. These stories often hinder a person from becoming who they are because they fool a person into thinking they are something different then they are.
Did you ever have the feeling, that you were “The One.” That you were specially gifted. A person with an important mission. Someone extraordinary? .
Well I had that. For many years I kept this as one of my deep and darkest secrets. .
The feeling became a thought. A way of thinking, that helped me keep up and stay alive. “There is something special about me. There must be. Otherwise I wouldn’t have to go through all of this.” I think that it went almost like that …
We’ve often heard it said that we can’t go any further up than we’ve been down and frankly that idea has always scared the sauce out of me. Did that mean that we would have to live on the street, homeless and destitute before I could have the life of relative comfort that I’ve always dreamed of?
My perspective, since my new found awareness of the ‘law of attraction’ one year ago is that the universe corresponds in accordance to our thoughts, emotions, fears, desires and ambition. I believe that in order to flow with the ‘law of attraction’ it is similar to an ‘initiation’.
It was sometime back in 2000 whatever and I called my mother one day, just to see how she was doing and she informed me that she was quite busy putting a luncheon together, planning a menu and making the grocery list. This was nothing new for her for after she retired, having luncheons was something she looked forward to each and every week. Getting out the interesting and quirky serving pieces all too familiar from when we had holidays meals as a family while I was growing up was part of this ritual as was putting the food she created (from new and exciting recipes she got from food television show hosts) out for everyone to try right along with her. No doubt this was to see if Paula Deen or Racheal Ray really DID know what they were talking about, right?
Once again late to the party, My bad…. Now to more important things. Initiate is a powerful word in my humble opinion. My first thought was the title of the song by the Black Eyed Peas, “Let’s Get It Started.” So saddle up friends and get ready to ride. The theme has many facets. When it gets down to the simple, I feel that to initiate is to create action, stir up creativity, set off the divine, reach out to others and being the change we all seem to seek. There are, of course, many others ways to ponder this theme but I will try to stay in the realm of the universe and not to other distant galaxies. So strap in, hang on and look for a good time.
When you see the word Initiate do you hear it as the noun form or the verbal form?
As a verb it means to start something. But, the noun is very different. .
An Initiate is someone who has successfully been initiated or has gone through an initiation. .
The alarm clock rings. You jump out of bed. Get dressed. Grab a coffee. Maybe some breakfast. And prepare your body for another day… Then head off to work to sit behind a desk or a computer, or in some other way fill your day with repetitive tasks. Come home. Have dinner. Watch some TV or spend time online or on your phone until it’s time for bed. And then do the same thing tomorrow.
Throughout my life I have learnt to initiate many things. At first they were the wrong things bad things, sad things, or melancholy. The good news is upon reading umpteen spiritual books, learning and practicing yoga and gathering wisdom from other wise minds I’ve gathered some sense. I still fall on my ass a lot yet I get back up. It has not always been easy yet I don’t like when my backside hurts.
The word of the month is Initiate. I like the verb initiate = cause (a process or action) to begin.
Nothing better than to initiate a great conversation as it gives us the opportunity to not only share our thoughts and ideas but to learn from the input of others. We are born unique, one of a kind beings so put a few of us inquisitive ones together with a question or a theory and the Magic begins to happen.
When it comes to succeeding in anything, the most important thing we can ever do is just start. This process of balancing the Divine Masculine aspect of our psyche has to do with being able to initiate. Whether it’s a change in our life, conquering a fear, or making a decision, developing this quality teaches one to be consistent and trustworthy.
When I first initiated my writings I did not envisage what I would achieve. I now thankfully am able to appreciate the way I touch others with my words. The feelings and emotions of love and happiness within the eyes of the recipients of my poems enables me to continue with my work.
