The image of abundance permits us to overturn limiting and conditioned structures. The image and its attendant feeling, the current of life, is the first step in forming a true and new structure that will support our work in the world. Its power is in its ability to activate the psyche to begin to move toward its inherent possibility. By establishing a daily pattern of trust, we are, in fact, re-parenting ourselves and learning to receive the support of the Earth, not as a metaphysical idea but by coming into touch with the actual current of life. When we connect with this current, feeling it supporting and nurturing us, we can allow ourselves more space- space to experiment, to make mistakes, to learn, and to accept our present situation, being fully responsive to it. We need no longer paralyze ourselves with explanations. At the very foundation of being we begin to operate from a kinesthetic mode- touching, feeling, plugging in, and allowing ourselves to be carried by life…….Rick Jarrow
this illuminating work we carry around can be shed and shifted into a ‘spirit cape’….a protection handwoven from the will to surrender to our own bright futures….momentum comes from this will, from this curiosity about what we are capable of….who makes the rules?
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets. ‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it’…..W.H. Murray
Serendipity. It is a word meaning ‘coming upon an unexpected good, a treasure.’ If I give myself permission to wander, these small serendipities are as good as mine already. When I go unprogrammed, ‘eyes only’ and open to experience, the world expands as if taking a deep breath. There is an art to wandering. If I have a destination, a plan- an objective- I’ve lost the ability to find serendipity. I’ve become too focused, too single-minded. I am on a quest, not a ramble. I search for the Holy Grail of particularity and miss the chalice freely offered, filled full and overflowing. There is more to see- or perhaps I am able now to see it. It is a Zen-like openness, a meditative awareness…..Cathy Johnson
