My son and I were talking the other evening and we touched upon an issue that I had not thought about in quite some time – although I am sure this age-old question still rages on. My son was speaking with me because he is suffering from a very bad case of wrong decisions.
I was listening to my favorite singer the other morning. Being a writer and poet, I am always paying attention to lyrics. Although I have heard this song countless times, this particular morning his description of a young lady he happened upon produced an “ah-ha” response. His words, divinity-in-motion, jumped out at me and I immediately placed it in a different context. I began to think about these words and what it meant subliminally. This is such a perfect description of what we are – just think about that for a second – divinity-in-motion.
I was watching a movie the other day with Kevin Costner. You may have seen it yourself. It is called Field of Dreams. To those of you who may not have seen this wonderful movie, I will not spoil it for you; but strongly suggest that you check it out. I have seen this movie in its entirety at least three times and it fills me with the wonder and the magic of faith in an activity or pursuit.
I have come to accept as my knowing that we are co-creators. There is no deity that decides what you will or will not express or experience in any particular reality – past, present or future. It is always up to you. It is always your choice. But, Universal Laws must be obeyed and they are not subject to change or re-interpretation – just recognition and compliance.
Life is all about change -- choice – the three “ts”: transformation, transmutation and transition. I find it amusing the lengths we will travel just to avoid choice. We somehow think that if we stand still and put our head under the cover, the choice we need to make will go away. As I started to write this article today, I was interrupted by a telephone call that I knew was coming and a decision that would need to be made that I had been putting off and rationalizing.
I just read something that made me stop and take stock. I have always been a rather joyful, somewhat carefree individual. Of late; however, I have become very heavy in my feeling nature and as this is not a familiar place for me, it has been wreaking havoc. I am painfully aware that I have stopped playing. I have stopped enjoying the little things. For instance, until three years ago, I regularly enjoyed a great evening of water bumper cars, go carts and miniature golf – to say nothing of a full day at Magic Mountain (mid-week, of course).
In my last article, I began to talk about compromise and what happens to us when we embark upon that long road that has no real ending, only beginnings. My own particular journey in this regard has been long and painful. I chose for my soul core makeup in this reality to express the ego persona of a female with a masculine gender vibration. This has created quite an interesting complexity for my psyche reconciliation. Having this innate understanding that subservience was not a comfortable position for me, and yet choosing various employment and relationship scenarios
This is the first in a series of articles on moving through emotional blackmail during our journey into self-awareness and spiritual reconnection. Our life expression challenge, should we choose to accept it, is to learn to work with and incorporate all aspects of our multi-dimensional Self into a complex, yet harmoniously working collective. Make no mistake about it – we are a collective and most of our challenges have come from linear thinking and single-mindedness when it comes to our very being. Freedom, true freedom – comes from recognizing that we are multi-dimensional beings with
