Inner Journey

NEED TO LET GO OF CONTROL?

“The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order.”
— Henry Miller

Ego believes that it needs to protect us from external dangers. Through control and manipulation, it aims to keep us safe. This need of ego is based in fear.

If we hope to live in love, we must become acquainted with soul. Experiencing soul brings a deep knowing that this is a loving universe. Experiencing soul also builds faith. We learn to trust that we don’t have to run the show. And when we do this, we tap the source of true freedom and joy.

“It is not action or effort that we must surrender; it is self-will, and this is terribly difficult. You must do your best constantly, yet never allow yourself to become involved in whether things work out the way you want.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“True spiritual surrender responsibly opens itself to the unknown.”
— Stephen V. Doughty

LONELINESS

“When humans find themselves surrounded by nothing but objects, the response is always one of loneliness.”
— Brian Swimme

Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning. We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals.

How much time do you devote to building relationships with things?

“Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self.”
— Maxwell Maltz

“No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.”
— George Eliot

Chance
“What can be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth could come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster!”

-Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667)


Is there such a thing as chance, or coincidence, or serendipity? Or is everything carefully orchestrated and organized by a Higher Power? Chance seems to be the unexpected, but then we have to think: who is doing the expecting? Something might come as a surprise to us, but it might also have been planned in the cosmos since before time.

Say goodbye to some old useless habit and welcome the chance to develop a new habit that will serve you better and take you further.

You can more fully embrace this change in the near future.

  4. Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.

Chance
“There is no such thing as chance; and what seems to us the merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.”

-Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805)


Sometimes when we look at something very close up, it doesn’t make sense. Like when you have just one piece of the puzzle, you can’t figure out what the whole picture is. But then when we pull back it all comes into perspective, we see how everything “fits” together. Everything happens for a reason, we’re all here for a reason. It might not make sense to us, but as time goes on and things fall into place, we see the big picture – and we see that it is beautiful.

Daily Good: The Wisdom of Forgetting What You Know

I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.

  • Richard P. Feynman –

The Wisdom of Forgetting What You Know

We are so afraid to let go, to just be, to allow the unfolding of this marvelous life without getting in the way. This fear keeps us paralyzed and stuck. And longing for the peace that is possible — if only we would put down all the efforts we make to know. There is no greater gift you can give yourself than the invitation to enter the world of not knowing. Why? If you are always going to know what you know now, things will always stay the same. How could they change? And by thinking you know what will happen, you are closing yourself off to the unimaginable — endless peace, unspeakable joy, awe and wonder.” Gail Brenner shares tips on how to “forget what you know.” { read more }

Inner Journey: HOPE AND DISAPPOINTMENT

“It’s precisely the disappointing stories, which have no proper ending and therefore no proper meaning, that sound true to life.”
— Max Frisch

“Don’t get your hopes up!”

Were you warned of this as a child? What does this say? It says that life is bound to disappoint you. It says, don’t aim high because you’re not likely to get what you want. It says that we can’t expect good things to happen to us.

As our thinking creates our reality, this kind of thinking dooms us to a mundane existence. It’s time to change our stories. Why not focus the immense power of our hearts and minds on bringing to fruition the very best life has to offer? Allow yourself to hope and believe in all possibilities.

“Hope is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.”
— Samuel Smiles

Chance
“Where observation is concerned, chance favors only the prepared mind.”

-Louis Pasteur, 1854


Sometimes we get ourselves into such a routine that we lose our power of observation. We don’t see the forest for the trees, so to speak! But when we open up our vision, expand our awareness, we start to see patterns. And then we see that things are not so random at all. We can prepare ourselves, and make what seems like “chance” work in our favor.

Spirit Library: Replenish & Restore (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The incoming energies are demanding and require us to remain in a space of fluidity despite any feelings of uncertainty. Fluidity allows us to remain open to all possibilities and opportunities. As we move into the weekend a space of inner stillness is necessary as it will help to stabilize both our thoughts and our emotions.

Daily Good: Tea, Ink, Life’s Mystery

There is some deep internal intelligence.
Some non-verbal narrative, which nourishes us,
which has its own natural wellspring.

  • Slobodan Dan Paich –

Tea, Ink, Life’s Mystery

“Amidst the hectic streets of San Francisco,
an elderly man, a small calming dot of black in a fast-moving wave, is momentarily glimpsed on the streets then reappears translucently through glass. He is visible only to those that take the time to see. What is singular about the man is his mesmerizing slowness. Silent Crescendo,
directed by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee for The Global Oneness Project, is a meditative and intimate portrait of ex-Yugoslavian emigre artist Slobodan Dan Paich. It follows his daily ritual of creating simple drawings with tea and ink,
which transcends art making.” { read more }

EarthSky News: Circumpolar Stars Never Rise Or Set

Circumpolar stars circle celestial pole
The closer you are to either of Earth’s poles, the more circumpolar stars you see. Circumpolar stars neither rise nor set, but stay up at all hours of the day, every day of the year. Even when you can’t see them – when the sun is out and it’s daytime – these stars are up there, circling endlessly around the sky’s north or south celestial pole.

Inner Journey: SPIRITUAL PATHWAYS

“In any way that men love me in that same way they find my love: for many are the paths of men, but they all in the end come to me.”
— Song of God, Bhagavad Gita

Spirit – the life force – exists in everything. It follows, then, that ANY path, any encounter is spiritual if we have the awareness to see it as such. Going deeper, going higher, emptying, connecting, believing or disbelieving, bouncing off the bottom, experiencing the heights, in pain, in ecstasy ….

Too often, we search afar for our own purpose when it is in our lives all the time, waiting for us to express it more openly. Bring greater awareness to each encounter and situation in life. Tune in to what you are inspired to do, who you are inspired to be. Your answers are waiting for you to pay attention – every moment!

“…focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”
— Greg Anderson

A Note from the Universe

You do understand that you’re now adventuring in the jungles of time and space by special invitation, right?

Mine? Hardly.

It was the express wish of every single one of the billions of people now sharing the planet with you, plus those on the verge of arriving, and their descendants.

They all thought earth would be needing some extra Cat-time to be all that she could be.

I agreed,

Chance
“Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast. In the pool where you least expect it, will be a fish.”

-Ovid


Are we ready for opportunity when it presents itself? We don’t have x-ray vision, we can’t see around corners, but good things are always there for us at every turn. We can make the most of chance by being prepared to say “yes!”

Daily Tarot: Justice

You might prefer to do most things on your own today, but that may not be permitted. Find ways to involve others and enlist help, or simply let them do their part. Wait until tonight to decompress in private. It’s important to keep an even temper and not let others manipulate you emotionally. Your feelings are being strongly projected, so treat others with tact and avoid anger

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Preconceived notions and old ideas could make it hard to deal with all the new and different situations and requests that could crop up today. It’s possible that you’re not actually being presented choices that must be made now or soon. Just as likely you’re being tested or tempted. It may be hard to resist a knee jerk reaction or two. Avoid committing to anything definite if you can.

Well, I won’t beat around the bush—today kinda sucked.

It was the sort of day that exists in a thousand shades of uncertainty and self-doubt.
I wondered if I looked as awkward on the outside as I felt on the inside. I wondered how the heck everyone else looked so put-together and shiny—meanwhile, I feel like I’m drowning.

Daily Good: George Orwell: Some Thoughts on the Common Toad

Novelist and essayist Eric Arthur Blair, pen name George Orwell, is perhaps best known for his prescient depictions of creeping totalitarianism and social injustice as captured in 1984 and Down and Out in Paris and London. Blair is also recognized as an avowed appreciator of the living world who intuitively understood nature’s role in transforming the human spirit in the aftermath of war: “I think that by retaining one’s childhood love of such things as trees, fishes, butterflies and to return to my first instance toads, one makes a peaceful and decent future a little more probable…” In his thought-provoking essay, Isaac Yuen explores the remarkable capacity for wonder and compassion that exemplifies Blair’s writing in “Some Thoughts on the Common Toad,” an ode to one of Earth’s most humble inhabitants

Inner Journey:

BREAK OUT OF ROUTINE

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
— Nietzsche

Where do you need to do some ‘out of the box’ thinking and living?

We are creatures of habit, of patterns. While initially the habits may have served us, they may now be limiting our ability to experience more of life.

What aspect of your life has become routine? How might you bring new life to it? Do some outrageous dreaming! Then do something completely different today.

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”
— George Washington Carver

Self-Realization
“King Henry: Presume not that I am the thing I was;
For God doth know, so shall the world perceive,
That I have turn’d away my former self.”

-Shakespeare (1564-1616) Henry IV, 1597

I like this because Shakespeare says here “I have made the choice- I have chosen to change” – and that is such a powerful statement. We always have that choice. We can always “reinvent” ourselves. And when we mean it, it works! There are a lot of people in the media who are examples of this – the former “loose image” actress turned mother and Sunday school teacher – the former rock-n-roller who is now a gospel singer. Part of this is knowing who we are – and understanding that how the world perceives us, how we present ourselves, is totally up to us.
