Really Cool Stuff Happens

“Whenever a maker and a thinker get together, really cool stuff happens.” — Max McKeown

When differently gifted people come together magic happens. This is one reason the divisions in the world are so disturbing. It seems to be human nature to want to form groups of people just like ourselves. But we are missing out if we do. We are stronger, and more creative when we embrace and learn from what appear to be our differences. So go out there and help make some really cool stuff happen!

A Metamorphosis

Awakening is not a thing.
It is not a goal, not a concept.
It is not something to be attained.
It is a metamorphosis.

Algandro Jodorowsky

I decided to end this month of awakening with this beautiful song by Jan Garrett and J.D. Martin. I Dreamed of Rain and the Rains Came.

Just Keep Growing

“If every day is an awakening, you will never grow old. You will just keep growing.” ~ Gail Sheehy

The photo today is my sweet little Lizzie. She and her sister Beth bring great joy into our lives. But as we watch them grow and learn to be cats, we are also learning important life lessons.

Every day for these girls is an opportunity for a brand-new adventure as they explore and discover the world around them. Looking out the window is a new experience every day as they watch squirrels, birds, the neighbors and listen to traffic, people and dogs. Walking or running through the house they are always sniffing out new things to explore, new heights to climb to. If I can’t find Lizzie I am learning to look up.

As I watch them grow, I can’t help but wonder when I lost the excitement that is felt when everything is new. If we stay open to spirit we can see every day as a brand-new opportunity to learn and grow.

May every day be an awakening. May we never grow old. May we just keep growing.

Time of Awakening Consciousness

“It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.” — Adrienne Rich

Watching and experiencing awaking is not all wonderful. There are those exhilarating and blissful moments. But it can also be a time when your world is turned upside down. In fact, it can be downright scary. Lifelong beliefs may be called into question. You may even feel like you are going crazy. If you do not understand or have the language to describe what is happening it might seem to others that you are going crazy.

Fear might cause you to turn your back on what is going on and pretend it is not happening. You might not be open to using your gifts because of people you might know who have misused them. Trying to ignore an awakening will not make it go away.

Don’t be afraid of the confusing, disorienting, and painful parts of awakening. They are all part of the process. “Fear not little flock it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” — Luke 12:32

The Power is Already Ours

 “All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.” — Swami Vivekananda
