Are we flat?

a window hidden by vines

’tis that time again when I feel like a zombie…

One day I am moving forward with my goals,
the next I am stuck in my room
avoiding everything.

I oscillate through all types of states of consciousness and emotions. Why does everything always pretend like life is one simple baseline experience? No highs, no lows. Their facade is “medium.”

BULLSHIT.

Maybe other people will start opening up about their inner worlds when I continue being honest about mine.

 

Dislocated

Frozen…but not the kind from being too cold. It’s the type that comes from a new intimacy with Truth.

Truth came to my full attention this evening.

Truth came to replace its previous stand-in: distant, shallow stories.

Truth revealed itself through expressed bravery and exposure.

It’s easy to be nonchalantly composed when theory runs my life.

“Those problems are ‘over there…’ Is this even really happening? Is it that big of a deal?”

But then I find out and realize that YES. It is. These problems are simmering in people’s lives who I see weekly, more than my own family and dogs. And now, it’s boiled over for me to see…for me to feel.

When people share their vulnerability it allows us to step up and meet them—to fill that once-distant space between us.

There becomes a new layer of intimacy to explore: humanity.

For now, I’m still processing, digesting, and frozen.

…but what’s gonna happen when I melt?

Those conversations that leave you feeling…

elevated and better than before…they remind you of the magic that can weave thru reality.

They bring out your most optimistic, excited, highest state.

They make you feel buzzing, with ripples of shivers migrating across skin. Kundalini? Are you hanging out too?

Thank you.

Let’s keep on cultivating these interactions, and prune out of the rest to save energy for what really matters.

Yoga Addresses Your Whole Being

“Often it’s a stagnation in the body that can begin to create a stagnation emotionally and mentally. Or it starts in the mind and makes its way into the physical. The great part of yoga is that we are addressing our whole being…all of our different bodies: physically, emotional, energetic, mental”

The Universe Creates Through Me (And You)

What if…

None of my ideas are actually mine?

What if we all are able to receive the same ideas and some just hear it first? Or hear it more clearly?

Then, what if I choose not to act upon the idea? Poor idea! It just wants to be created somehow. If not me, then someone else will…

But I think that some people are better are creating certain ideas. The idea came to a person first, one who had the best chance of manifesting it. If that person ignores it, then the idea loses a little bit of its clarity and charm.

So if I hear an idea first and think “Wow! How amazing!” but then just sit on it… Well, the idea has to be created somehow. It goes to the next possible creator. That person may not be the best medium to bring the idea into the world.

How do I  know when an idea is worth it?

It makes me excited. Ambitious. My heart starts to flutter and expand.

The size an idea shouldn’t really matter…because what if the idea is just testing you out?

“Hmmm..what do you think about this, lil’ human?” wonders the idea, while waiting for a response of curiosity and receptivity before giving you more.

Listen to your ideas.

Act on them. If it’s stirring something up, create. 

What are we connecting to?

Where do we put our focus,
our energy,
our attention?

Habits structure reality, But…
habits can evolve.

*Break*
Grab phone

Fill the walls
Fill the shelves
Fill the floors
With stuff, stuff, stuff
You’re not a collector,
You are a hoarder

What are we with our possessions?
What are we with emptiness around us?

*Microsecond pause in between tasks…*
Where are you?

Where are you?

Where are you…

…with loneliness
…with silence
…with free time
…with boredom

Where do your unconscious patterns lead you?

to items?
to people?
to substances?

*Break*
Fill the Mind
*Break*
Flood the Mind

with thoughts,
worries,
fears,
anything…
…just to not be alone with yourself
