There comes a moment in time where the urgency passes and the fear subsidies making way for a new wave of positive and progressive energy. Rationally, you understand that the possibility of recurrence exists but when grace descends and forms a bubble of joy around you, that possibility becomes a hazy half forgotten dream that you can choose to either focus on and allow to come sharply into focus or you can allow to slip away into the midst of the other dark shapeless forms that dwell beyond the bubble.
This week will go down in history… but then so will every other week. What’s done is done and this is where we are. I don’t know about you but where I am right now is pretty significant as far as the journey goes, significant because this is the only place that matters… right here, right now.
I remember back about 18 years ago I shared a flat with a friend who was a morning person (I had no idea until then that such people even existed), but she had this habit of waking me up in the morning by making me do a full on freak-out dance routine to “Right Here, Right Now” (was that Fatboy Slim? I can’t remember), anyway needless to say, that’s all there is… and when the sun came up this morning on another blessed day, I remembered to be present with what is now… and then I did a freak-out dance routine around the kitchen to something equally as rousing!
The point being that the sun did come up. No matter how shit it appears to be at any one time, sooner or later that despair will transform, if you allow it to, into acceptance and from acceptance into appreciation, from appreciation in to full-on gratitude and when surrounded by that now exponentially growing bubble of grace it won’t be long until gratitude becomes jubilation!
Apply Principle 2: I AM Detached to your philosophy today, get out of your head and into your body (via Fatboy Slim or other worthy rhythmic noise maker… I’m finding Robin Thicke works for me currently) get present with what is and learn to freak-out for a whole different and altogether more positive reason!
More later (when I’ve stopped wearing the kitchen floor out and singing loudly at the neighbours)… x
