How we choose to live works like how we breathe; we inhale, utilize what we take in, and then we exhale. The quality of every choice we make has a direct impact on the quality of our lives. Conscious decisions take us forward even though the destination remains unknown, so too those we take unconsciously, as well as choices that are utterly devoid of conscience, as well as the that opportunities that we abdicate.
When Love is the substance that we consciously inhale, what we are likely to experience is the intrinsic quality of joy, the element essential to foster inner peace. This leads to the capacity to exhale the understanding and compassion that alone generates peace.
Think about the last time you had an emotional reaction of the ‘nuclear’ variety; when our attitudes turn toxic, we inhale fear, this leading to depression and experiences of self-doubt, which in turn erode trust and cause us to exhale terror.
Take care on what you decide today, understanding that what you take in and take through will lead to how you say and do whatever you do.
In recent days, friends have written wondering about my thoughts and feelings after the US elections given that my choice was to remain silent about it on social media. Like you, I’m all too aware of the agendas and issues facing humanity, but the fact is that nothing in my life has changed since the moment three 3-decades ago when I agreed ‘To be a catalyst for change, for Love’. Despite high internal and external odds, and ‘costs’ that defy most people’s imagination, I continue to live my Purpose on purpose.
Don’t make the error of thinking this image suggests that I’m feeling stopped or at a ‘dead end’! Au contraire.
My path is shared with Re-Members of a Consciousness cabal, an audacious tribe of intrepid travellers and trailblazers, each uniquely committed to bringing new light wherever this incarnational Journey leads us. When this Path brings us such a notice, it’s a source of information, not a sign to quit or turn back. Look closely at this picture, and it’s clear that whoever built the sign on the invisible fence is a member of my tribe. Why? Because the builder, clearly ‘a-dues-paid-in-full’ soul, knew that it’s the travellers job to open their way, and there, in plain sight, blocking the ‘C’, they left five keys.
They provided more than what was necessary to open the way, they safeguarded their property, made sure seekers would become finders, as well as to help insure the safety of those who don’t pay attention to small stuff and are unlikely to be prepared for the journey ahead.
