Let That Shit Go…

image

We can be so ingenious crafting our individual personal manifestos and paradigms that serve to support our deepest fears and the stories we refuse to work through and let go of. The “perfect life” or “perfect partner” and “nothing less will do” is a common one. A built-in excuse for failure. A cruel demand on self and others, to need, expect, and/or want another to be the salvation and answer to our own imperfections and healing. No matter how eloquently it is phrased or presented, it is not loving. It is separation. It is fear. Love doesn’t create or stubbornly protect the barriers we ourselves have designed to protect the places we fear to, and yet must enter in order to be free.

The separation stories ego/mind creates will not kill us, but they can kill the ability to live a beautiful, contented, loving, free life. Being courageous and fearless enough to let go of and drop the ‘protective’ armor / victim stories once and for all is the quickest way to free one’s self in my experience. Once fully released, it does not matter either way. The charge is gone. Let that shit go and BE FREE.

The Petri Dish of Suffering

20140726-023745-9465101.jpg

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
~ Ben Okri

This life is full of tragedy and loss. Sometimes, it is challenging to wrap the mind around it, and painful to wrap the heart around it. What a trip… what a ride.

To ignore the sorrow or tragic aspects of the Whole, and attempt to “be” or see only the easy soft lovely ‘beautiful’ parts; to deny the juicy messy ‘ugly’ painful parts, is life only partially tasted, partially lived. It is unawakened or partially awakened believing it is fully awakened. When we transcend, even if only for a moment in time (literally) we then know it is all part of the deal. Not just some of it. ALL of it. It is then that the shadow, painful, tragic aspects, can also be seen as ‘beautiful’ if one chooses.

We are here right now in the midst of an earthly physical/mental firestorm day-to-day. How we think, act and react to whatever is, has been, or will be — including the tragedies, losses and suffering in our lives and the lives of our extended earthly family, is the material realm petri dish where TRUE heroes, TRUE sages, TRUE awakened and enlightened beings are born… again and again and again.

No human is excluded from this experiment, so let’s each, from wherever we are right now, consciously love one another in our individual and collective suffering. And let’s be courageous and embrace a little of the shadow aspects of our individual and collective humanity today — even if we weep until the sun rises tomorrow.

Sadhu: A Precious Gift

20140726-023443-9283841.jpg

A subtle shift of focus… the precious gifts…

My missing Sadhu (our loyal 14 year old dog son) in the physical is overshadowed by the precious gifts. The gift of his presence in my life. The blessing of knowing he is free and infinitely part of All now. Unbounded. No longer apparently limited by the physical body. That gives me a profound sense of peace and bittersweet joy, just as it did in the moment of his leaving. Being fully present with each gut-wrenching second of all of it as I sang him to sleep for the last time. No regrets. No if-onlys. No what-ifs for me…or for him. It was all said. All shared. All known and felt. A good-bye gift.

The Love remains in hearts eternally connected. The gift that keeps on giving. Through all of our hellos and our goodbyes, that’s what this life is all about. – mu, June 6, 2014

 

The Sliver of Light

Somewhere…where troubles melt like lemon drops…
Amidst these and other challenging times, past, future, now, we can tune into the pulsing electric current of our own persistent, relentless beating heart that knows how to keep on. We can focus on the little glimmer, the tenacious glint within the shadow, the sliver of light that is always always there… somewhere.

Faith, Hope and Love. Let’s never forget, we are all in this together.
