Grateful to be back in the land of the living this week after a full 7 days of confinement with some modern day plague or other, I’m finding myself more than a little out of sorts… Ill? No, I’m better, thanks for asking, actually it’s more a sense of feeling like I’m out of synch with the world and being annoyed at the world for it.
Have you ever felt like your schedule was completely at odds with everyone else’s? Monday is a day where traditionally the world goes back to work after the weekend but what about those of us who work non-traditional hours? My Monday this week is set to be a day tackling some of the big jobs in my garden, I’ve done next to nothing so far and its a real mess… but what’s all that got to do with the Grail? Mother Nature has a schedule all of her own and she is the one who dictates when to grow and when to rest, when to plant seeds and when to blossom… she takes her cue from the moon and the sun and has no need of permission from the rest of society to step outside the bounds of what’s considered acceptable. Mother Nature knows what’s best for her and those precious things in her care, she accepts responsibility for the storms and the rain, for the unseasonable shifts in temperature and the early or late growth of the daisies… Mother Nature has no need of our consent, for she is our teacher and we simply forgot.
We ride against our natural urges and energy levels, constructing false presets for time and for propriety, we even see fit to adjust the clock because we disagree with her teachings… or at least somebody did at some point and we, the sheep that follow, have yet to question…
It’s Monday because someone somewhere told us it was, but it wasn’t Mother Nature. She would have you understand that the sheep don’t understand Monday, they understand the moon and the sun, awake and asleep, hungry and fed, warm and cold… To find the Grail you must honour your own rhythm, honour the tender bud within until it flowers. Get in synch with yourself first, believe it or not, Mother Nature is in control of you too.
Principle 2: I AM Detached
Principle 4: I AM Truth
Principle 6: I AM Self-Full
Everything else can wait.
