Another week has passed by. It sure seems to me like time is moving awfully fast. I am not sure if that is a good thing, a bad thing, or simply a thing. Here are my thoughts for today.
Tomorrow I am heading up North to see Giselle. I am beyond excited. Our retreats are certainly interesting with surprises floating in and I am sure this one will be no different.
I am heading into this weekend like a child getting on a fair ride for the first time. Full of wonder and excitement but no real expectations, just as Giselle recommended.
I have certainly had my share of ideas about what this weekend will be about but they are all just ideas. The truth is, I trust that whatever happens is exactly what is supposed to happen. I think Giselle is finally starting to rub off onto me. 🙂
What I know for sure about this weekend is that it will be an experience and it will be good for me regardless of what happens. Spirit guides me to these retreats and Spirit guides the retreats so all I have to really do is trust.
I have been have some real interesting and weird dreams lately. I pay attention to them but I am not obsessing over them. I know that if I am meant to understand the symbolism and what the dream is meaning then it will come to me, one way or another.
I will admit that it is fun at times to try to figure out the meaning of a dream and I enjoy doing it, but I am really focusing on just letting things flow right now.
“Give up defining yourself ~ to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of Conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you ARE.”
~ Eckhart Tolle~
When I first read this quote I thought, “That’s right. I do not like labels.” Then I went back an re-read it and truly felt it and I realized even though I do not like labels I am still guilty of defining myself to myself.
I am sure I define myself to others as well but I feel what I need to really work on is not defining myself when I am not aware that I am defining myself. Or maybe it would be better to say, I need to be more conscious so there are no more things that I am not aware I am doing.
Learning sure is a life long pursuit.
This is a terrific reminder for myself.
Oh, whats the rush…
It takes time to clear emotional debris.
It takes time to peel our armor.
It takes time to recognize our magnificence.
It takes time to heal our shame.
It takes time to explore our possibilities.
It takes time to find our voice.
It takes time to integrate our changes.
It takes time to learn the lessons that expand us.
It takes time to craft a life of purpose.
Rushing works against us.
The longer we take, the deeper and more sustainable the transformation.
Thanks for reading. Peace, and have a terrific weekend.
