Living the life story.

I awoke thinking of this physical body in space.

I also felt gratitude for housing this body in the physical space where I eat, sleep, nurture and do many other activities.

Both my physical body and the living space are "constructed".  Both need to be maintained and sustained, healed and repaired.

My thoughts create the emotions, the people who visit this living space create relationships.

I can live with the feelings of fear or love.   Similarly I can relate with fear and love with those whom I share the living space.

What am I constructing?  I ask!  Words and their associated emotions generate the feelings.

What thoughts and emotions are associated with words like "sadness, fear, anger, envy, jealousy, greed, low self confidence, confusion etc."

What thoughts come up when words such as "happy, gratitude, joy, confidence, clarity, beauty, compassion and kindness," are brought into attention; what kind of energy flows within the physical body?

I take a few breaths, conscious of the inhales and exhales.  The  new energy flows with those breaths.

I ask?  How do I begin to write my life story, how do I live this story.

Hope, a candle.  May it burn bright in all our hearts, housed in all the bodies.

Thanks is "forgiving" and only for giving.

Bridge the gap

The "is'm" exist in what "is" and what "is not".

Awareness connects this duality of life, the is and is not, to Consciousness.  Consciousness holds them both, yet it is not affected by either. 

Meditation techniques help build the bridge of awareness, connecting us to the Consciousness, the One, the Source...

Life feels full, complete, and manageable even in moments of challenge, when we choose to walk on this bridge.

Celebrate Life

Last night I slept thinking about introspection and forgiveness.   I realize how important these intentions are.

A tribe called the Jews celebrate their New Year with these intentions.   Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

On this new moon and a solar eclipse in Virgo I too set an intention to celebrate the ending of each day with introspection and forgiveness.  To start the new day with celebration.  

A new ritual to remake my self.  I am the game changer of this life.  What a gift life is and I say Thank You to all who make mine a beauty. 

I heard a sound, from the depth of my soul from the heart of existence.  It said when we live with the gift of a body, a gift of the senses, all six of them, we are alive.  

The awareness of each sense also gives me the ability to be grateful and consciously withdraw from the over stimulation of any of the senses.  In that place I call "my peace" I reconnect with the energy that creates life.  In peace I acknowledge my life lessons.  In introspection I give myself time to heal the "traumas" associated with these lessons.  

I forgive myself, I forgive the other.

Jupiter in Virgo - a return after 12 years

Jupiter the planet of abundance.  It magnifies the energy, it is also referred to as the planet of abundance.
Jupiter is the celestial body for the sixth chakra, the ajna, the command center where intuition and insight reside.

Jupiter returns once every 12 years into a specific sun sign.  And here it is in Virgo.

I recollect the past, what was happening in my life 12 years ago.  What were the drivers or the forces of energy at that time. 

I was living and working in Massachusetts.  I recall the times spent there with fondness yet my heart belonged in Toronto.  I followed my heart and decided to return home. 

Today I sit back and review the "self" that I knew then.  I realize I cannot possibly know who I was then, because now I am looking from a different perspective.  My filters have changed.  We can never really look back at the past, we will not see who we were, we can only see ourself in the now.  

The last two months have been an inward journey.  It's the time to follow that heart, again.   I feel a shift in my perception.  A lightness in my being.  A sadness I do feel.  It's like I am facing some inevitable.  There is a fine veil and I am not afraid to look beyond.  I don't know what I see, I do know that whatever it is, it will be.  The words of an old song come to thought.
que sera sera

I write my story as it unfolds.  Make my choices and walk the path.
A turtle, it carries its home on its back.   I carry mine in the heart.  

Sitting on a park bench in my old stomping grounds of Nathan Philips Square I look up at the sky and capture this vision.

Light and shadow

Thinking of a vast open space, seems like a desert.  I see a shadow and then notice the rock casting its shadow.  What is this shadow, only an obstruction of the light.  My glance wanders away. 

In the inner scape, dark shadows confuse us, maybe it's the thoughts and feelings casting a shadow.  Maybe my inner glance will wander towards the light, in that brief moment I feel an uplifting a lightness of being.  
Another thought and another feeling enters the inner space.
