Limitless: Seeing All As Good

 

Stepping into the Canvas as ‘Limitless.’ Our true potential is established by removal of all roadblocks set by self-defeating thoughts: “I cannot do that” or “I am not good enough.” Truth is, nothing is impossible once the intent is established. Taking one step at a time, whether the path is clear or not, trusting that All is Good…so shall it be…limitless possibilities.

Taming The Monkey-Mind

With 10,000 things floating around in our minds, it is difficult to sit still. Mastering our minds we learn to master the 10,000 things. These 10,000 things, often referred as the monkey mind, can create restlessness within our being and ultimately an imbalance. Taming the monkey mind…we find peace once again.

Sitting quietly in a room or a favorite place will help but may not be enough. Do you ever feel like you can’t stop thinking about the mundane? You ever feel constant restlessness? Restlessness becomes angst, angst becomes worry. Difficulty eliminating the monkey mind? Maybe it’s time to spank that monkey?!

Letting out the proverbial yell…enough! Then re-focusing our attention on that which we most desire. Simply focusing on our breath is enough, aiding in establishment of our intention. During meditation we need only focus on our breath while maintaining our thoughts on that which we most desire. Remembering to drop thoughts of what we do not. That which our attention goes, energy flows.

Examples of ‘Monkey Mind’…What am I getting get at the grocery store? When do I have to pick up the kids? What am I doing tomorrow? These are all questions that might be floating around in our minds. For the next 20 to 30 minutes let go of these ideas just breathe. In breathing we find calmness.

Stepping into the Canvas whilst taming the monkey-mind. It is through our own distractions that we fail to see beauty in our every day. Through our distractions we paint a dismal canvas for our days. Eliminating these distractions, we are left to openness…like that of a child…to whatever comes our way. We change rapidly with our surroundings or happenings, we adapt to our current situations, we paint a glorious picture upon our Canvas of Life. Beauty within the Canvas, comes from the self…but we have to be willing to let go of distractions.

Checking Emotions At the Door

If today brings anxiety, or angst presents itself…stop for a moment…take a breath…allow it to pass. Whether it’s an important meeting or just a routine day, pause at the threshold…checking emotions at the door. As we let go of the baggage being carried, we step into our days with a new freedom, a freedom to breathe freely without fear. Without fear we make room for love, peace and joy. Stepping into the Canvas checking our emotions at the door. Have a glorious day!

Walking A Lonely Road

When we come to a place of self-realization, instinctively we let go of what others think. Letting go of what we think, we are accused of being crazy. Even our family or closest friends abandon us, as we walk a thin line between the physical and spiritual plains. Viewing us as crazy or insane, we are left alone, calling on Great Spirit at any time.

This path we have chosen…the path of self-actualization, is a thin line. A thin line between flesh and spirit; The narrow road that many traditions speak about. Walking with one foot in the real world and one in the spiritual, connected with the seen and unseen. The self-realized no longer ask why, but why not…adopting the natural law of order.

Does the thunder ask the rainbow to appear? Or lightning ask the same? No. The rainbow just emits unconditional love, shining her beauty upon a darkened sky. To the north…open skies, to the south…darkness…in between the Rainbow Bridge. The Warrior just shows up as needed and gives everything she has…away. When the self-realized has abundance flowing daily into their lives, they instinctively give more away.

Dare to walk the narrow path between inner and outer worlds, the path between flesh and spirit. The self-realized are in this world, but not of this world. Ridiculed, mocked, chastised…makes no difference to them…they have found all there is to know…and more. They remain on the lonely road, but no longer are they alone.

Stepping into the Canvas walking a thin line. One step in, one step out…following both inner and outer worlds towards paradise. In the vast openness, we find a narrow path leading to this place of paradise…stay the course…you are on the right path.

My Whole Heart And Soul

 

Stepping Into the Canvas with whole heart and soul. Lend a hand, an ear, a friendly smile or do what you want today not what others say ‘you should’ do. Stay away from the trap of pleasing others, but please only yourself. Say it with me…”Today I will not only step, but will fall into the canvas with my whole Heart and Soul. In allowing what will be, it shall be so.”

Born Into Hate, Learning To Love

This next story is reflective of many, as we were born into fear and anger towards our Brothers and Sisters. Growing up, we are collectively taught to hate one another. It is time to put down the swords of hate and embrace a life filled with Love.

The Warrior living in a new reality, did not always live in the extraordinary. She once lived ordinarily as a Pilgrim, aimlessly searching for something greater. Her life was as everyone else instructed her to follow and she ate what everyone told her to eat. Her church was a product of what everybody believed to be the ‘one true’ church and her government was a natural enemy. As a Pilgrim she essentially lived in a sorrow led reality, believing in what everyone around her instructed. This was unsettling to her and she needed to find a new reality. Where does the Pilgrim turn to, when the mainstream tells her how to live? Who to associate with and which words to speak.? How does the Pilgrim cut strings to her reality as a marionette?

Born into hate, left to Love…Ani Po

It is the first step which proves to be the most difficult:

The Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

~Lao Tzu

Knowing this, the Pilgrim must take a chance on what is burning within. There is a natural
burning of desire within each and every one of us, but we often fail to embrace our highest desires of being free…living the life we were meant. Without that first step, the Pilgrim would have remained in the Reality of a Pilgrim and never come to know reality as a Warrior. It is time to take that first step…the first step to becoming a Warrior of Light.

Giving up Her prejudices, embracing oneness, our Warrior emerges victorious for all humanity. Victorious as she becomes a beacon of Light everlasting. Born into Hate, Growing into Agape. As she learns to Love unconditionally, her reality transformed into Paradise.

Stepping Into the Canvas with Love in hand. When everything else falls around us, remain held to that which reigns over all…Love. If we fill our hands with anything other than Love, there can be no room for that which we most desire. With Love in hand we blend beautiful colors, contributing a rainbow of colors within the Canvas of Life. As the Rainbow emerges within, So shall without.

The Spirit Of Water Flows Through

Stepping into the Canvas fluidly as water. As the Spirit of Water does not cease, so shall the Spirit within our being exist. This fathomless being that exists within in each and everyone of us…may flow now like that of the river. No labels, no definitions…only Silken as the entire Universe unfolds within our breath.
