On or Off?

brainAn email from a friend just reminded me of a fact that everyone needs an occasional reminder about…

It’s this: I am always connected to the Source, but it’s up to me to open the flow and inpower my heart and inlighten my brain. If I’m ‘off’ or sitting in the dark due to a power surge from an overloaded circuit, it’s my responsibility because I’m the one who guarantees the quality of my connections. When a fuse blows it’s my job to replace it as well as repair any frayed wires. I’ve learned to recognize when I’m feeling disconnected, and my first task is to identify where it’s happening; is it physical? Emotional? Cognitive? Or is it spiritual? Regardless of the ‘type’ my time and space is going to suffer because the real reason is going to show up very quickly in my attitudes and reactions.

Living as Light in the Light, or being a cosmic spark, a glowing ember of creation, choosing to exist in the darkness while hiding under a mask or basket is up to you. Choice is a word without meaning unless you turn it into a very band choose. Ignoring or otherwise abdicating a decision and defaulting to indecision is worse than ‘why bother’ coffee. You can co-create and live the life you desire, and believe me, I get that it isn’t always easy to accept, as yes, it often means making hard choices; or you can wallow in self-righteous, holier-than-thou piety or throw a tantrum and call a pity party. Neither are celebrations, and if someone shows up they aren’t going to want to hang around.

Remember that your next breath is a promissory note. Like tomorrow, sharing a kind word, a hug, or receiving and returning a heart-to-heart hug are not givens. This breath is yours to account for, and it’s time to be the one changing your habits and making the choices that let you fulfill the Promise that came with you into this lifetime.

For those of you asking, “What are the Promises the Universe made me?

Only you know. But figuring out what they are and living up to them is the only way to keep the promises that you make.

butterflyAs for me, if you’re reading this on Sunday, May 24th, my lights are blazing as SAS flies me south to my new home base in Switzerland!

Embodied Light

PrintWhen I read that UNESCO had declared 2015 ‘The Year of Light and light based technologies’ it seemed somehow perfect! But it seemed to my brain that their logo need needed a bit of revisioning their. This was my effort to communicate my thought! ☺

One of my favourite books is ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and his words, “He who must travel happily must travel light” have long inspired my heart, calling beauty into mindfulness with regard to what truly matters in light of eternity.

The word “human” comes from the Hindu words “hu”, which means light. Few know that “man” means ‘mind’, and that science indeed affirms that you are embodied light!

For almost three decades my life has purpose has revolved around the resonance of light, the Universal symphony whose harmony gives rise to life. It all began with a single point of light that both called and carried me over the threshold between life and death. It was there that I left my right footprint imbedded in Eternity, and my being was imprinted with the experiential knowledge of Light’s wholeness. That moment, changed how I hear and see the world forever as a cosmic loom wove the strand of a divine tapestry, entwining space and time, and filling it with a light that can only be described as love. I live for the day when T.S. Eliot’s inspiring thought is realised in the hearts of humankind, “And all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well when the tongues of flame are in-folded into a crowned knot of fire and the fire and the rose are one.”

The Mereon Matrix is a template for a living technology of mindfulness and shows us how to flip the switch and turn on our inner lights. Such is true ‘InLightenment’, a job that is yours and yours alone. If you’re in the dark, flip the switch or take off the hood. You’re meant to move freely and fearlessly in this world, light that opens the darkness as you lovingly work/play to make a positive difference. When the light’s on inside it’s easy to explore, trailblazing spaces you’ve consciously or unconsciously stayed away from and this is how you find your way to “The Fountain of You”! There you can blend all the ingredients you’ve found and gathered along the way, and mixing it with the alchemical elixir that you find flowing there, what you blend forms a unique potion that has the power to transform your body, inpower your heart, inlighten your brain and inspire your spirit to be and with others achieve what you’ve only dared to dream! What you are blending is the libation of liberation!

Today, Day 12 in the Year of Light in the Age of Transformation, create a ‘Fellini’ moment and joyously dance with abandon in the ‘Fountain of You’!

Unplugged

cords and connections

I don’t know about you, but its frustrating when a tangle of cords gets in my way, and only when something goes seriously awry do I crawl under my desk and begin the task of disentanglement, attempting to figure out what’s gone wrong.

Yesterday, however, someone in the neighbourhood accidentally severed a cable and left me, and an untold number of others, without an Internet connection for more than 8 hours. While the impact on a large business that relies on this connection might have been significant, my loss was limited to missing two scheduled conference calls. The problem and the lesson were found in the fact that I use web-mail and the relevant connecting information was in an email. Unable to retrieve it meant that even going old school was impossible because without the phone number I couldn’t call or send an SMS. Even though ‘present’, conditions beyond my control prevented me from keeping a promise, and two friends experienced my not being available after I said I would be.

Everything is Interconnected. Every relationship is dependent upon a series of inner and inter-connections. What we too often forget is that our ability to connect with another is depends upon our willingness to make sure that we’ve established a link between our inner realities, honouring every piece of self, body, heart, mind and spirit. The cut cable was an opportunity to embrace the silence. Emerging from that meditative space, my spirit began to whisper a flurry of questions, remembering experiences,yes, shocks, when I managed to convince myself that plugging into an energy that I’m not wired for was a good idea. To understand what I’m talking about, simply imagine a 2-year old toddling towards a light socket’ with a fork in hand saying “What’s that?”

Knowing I’m not terminally unique, here are a few of the questions my spirit put to my brain and heart:

  • Why do you suffer an ‘inpowerment’ failure when there’s an external cause beyond your control that short circuits your communication with someone you love?
  • “How often do you offer an excuse to account for your absence?”
  • “What goes on inside of you when someone doesn’t do what they’ve said they’re going to do?”
  • “Do you believe the best or assume the worst?”
  • “How often do you offer a compromise when you’ve broken a promise?”
  • “How did you feel when someone shattered a vow?”
  • “When happens to your inner world when you’re speaking and someone interrupts and rudely cuts you off?”
  • “What happens in your body and heart when your head says someone’s blown you off or is shining you on?”

Make it a great day and remember that fun is the first part of ‘fundamental’ when you consciously connect your inner realities and make sure there’s time and space for your body, heart, mind and spirit to cooperate and participate wholly and fully in love.
