Life As I “Now” Know It
All this thinking, listening being aware of my thoughts as I ingest the new information from my latest audio playbacks from TheGateofUnity.com‘s representation of the various speakers from the start of this year. This meant this morning I was once again absorbing more from Ms Hough to find myself at the end of my morning route, extremely tired and in need of a short nap that I allowed myself, the minute I finished all the animal chores.
To wake up from the coolest of dreams of a football team scrimmage where as soon as the players on either side completed all the drills, be they offense or defense. They then each in turn, played all the drills for their opposing player to allow them to understand both sides of the play. Allowing me the deeper insight into not judging a situation as right or wrong, just allow the information I need to show itself and guide me to the answer I am seeking.
This then played out in my life when I went back outside to ride. Spying my son’s dog still determinedly digging more holes in the same place for more gophers like he killed 3 or 4 weeks back. So perfectly mirrored the holes my son was digging to make a fort in the ground. Aware of my initial thought of digging to deep, going nowhere fast. To then head out to the pasture to remove several of the weeds that have gotten to huge to mow. My intention to cut them down was paused in the feeling to take the pick with me. To be rewarded with the ease of “digging” out what had appeared to be several plants in a clump, which was just one humungous weed with an extremely large base and a very deep root, that with several expertly swings of the pick dug out and uprooted the whole plant.
My mind quickly grasped the concept of me “judging” how hard the whole process might be by my view from the distance. Versus the instinct to take the pick with the clippers, changing tactics when I got close enough to actually view, then decide the simplest method. To have my mind remind me of how frustrated I have been at getting my youngest to clean his room, and yet go nowhere near the expression used by my parents to get me to do things “Because I said so!” Realizing this was a deep rooted idea, which I now recognized, viewed differently because I have learned to understand why, is so much easier than just because another wants. I realized I could accomplish more if I chose to explain “Spending more money for things not taken care of, is of no interest to me. So till I see results for my money, I choose how, when and why I will open my pocket book!”
This peace settled all through me. I knew I had uprooted not only the weed, but an old issue I now viewed differently. To have the rest of my day turn into a magical journey… Back to the drive my evening route, they informed me the heavy rattling, and shaking that has been a constant annoyance. Was because not only had the weight come off of the tires, but one of the tires was severely out of round. I had the most perfect smooth ride in over a year. My son came home, after hearing my assertive idea, all chores done my way, done immediately, and the rooms (more than one) are clean. And my tiredness, I forgot I completely gave up caffeine this last weekend, cold turkey.
Wow, just be in the moment, take out the judgment, allow for all things to be the Universe conversing with me. Pay attention if how I am feeling is positive or negative. Remind myself to take things one step at a time, ease into change, pay attention, breathe in between thoughts, love, listen, and trust my instincts. It’s all good!
