Congruency

“Our true calling is the call to ultimate congruence within oneself.” ~ Caroline Myss

It could be said that the true spiritual path is the path within oneself of being or becoming a congruent human being. It is living in a state of inner-harmony, so that we do not live a life of ‘interior betrayal’. A congruent human being recognizes and listens to the still small voice within and follows its guidance, even if it is uncomfortable, scary, or unthinkable at first. It might be telling you to pick up the phone, apologize to someone, start walking or exercising, change career or diet, be more honest with yourself and others, help someone, forgive someone who mistreated or abused you, or whatever it is. Fear might come up. The ego might get noisy and argue with the still small voice and what it is telling you, that’s where courage comes in. It takes courage to be a congruent human being. When the still small voice offers us something that has the potential to bring us into alignment with our truth – the courage will be there. It will just naturally rise up to meet and support us.

When we are living congruently, we are “Being our very own beingness” as Lester Levenson said. It is recognized as a feeling of inner-peace, harmony, ‘rightness’, effortlessness, balance, imperturbability. Everything flows. We are not going against anything – not resisting anything, because we know what is profoundly ‘right’ for us. It is not a destination or set in stone – it is a fluid state. It is a place of synchronicity where ‘magic’ happens. The identity (in my case the ‘mu’) seems to disappear as BEingness takes over. As during a performance when the music just flows through the body – the instrument, as opposed to ‘mu’ thinking about it or trying to control it. It is effortless perfection. This is how it is in all areas of life when we are congruent beings.

When we are honest, true, and congruent, everything seems easier, more effortless; It flows, It is all perfection – literally ‘all good’, regardless of whatever is going on or happening externally. Congruency is a state of knowing and being who and what we really are.

We Are All One Soul Mate

flower_of_lifeThat rare moment when you realize you have found another living human being who seems to have had the exact same or very similar experiences, has come to the same or a very similar understanding, and has or is following the same path (spiritually, healing, or whatever it may be)… and it is just pure mind-blowing *synchronicity* at it’s best – down to minute details. PRICELESS!

I am in awe of how we can be lead (or lead ourselves) to others of like mind and consciousness in the most unexpected ways. It’s like “divine manifestation” out of, or within, seemingly random chaos. I’ve found the great stuff in life usually happens like that. Sometimes I’m just way more in-tune and aware of it when it does happen. (In the Flow).

And I think it’s happening more and more as the current paradigm and associated shifts are occurring. We are being faced with choices – some minor, some challenging, some life-changing; always and ultimately transformative choices. If we don’t choose, the choice will be made for us one way or another.

Sometimes, when I run across another human who seems tied to me soulfully, my (monkey) mind tries to “figure it out”. It starts asking, “What does this mean? For what purpose is this? What do I do or learn from this random (or not) mind-blowing encounter with this stranger or person?” My soul replies, “They are your reflection reflecting back your own journey. Keep on your path. Share it with others — without expectation or attachment. And don’t give up. Never give up.”

So, stay open and aware of  “soul mates” (we all are really) all around and found in the most seemingly curious and unexpected places. They/we have a story to tell. It’s the story of our own journey.

Have a synchrodipity day!

Front Row Center: in the Now

Driving down the hill at Sanjon Road in Ventura awhile ago, I came across a view that was one of those views that stops you in your tracks. Thoughts stop, time stops, and you just marvel at the beauty of the scene before you… a few seconds or minutes (or until the stop light changes from red to green). The vast deep blue-green sea was peeking up just beyond the sand level. This massive body of water swaying side to side…gently rising and falling every so slightly… sunlit sparklers igniting the water here and there… the Channel Islands out of nowhere peeking through low cloud cover mist. And I’m sitting right there – front row center – where it all comes together in this moment. Thank you!
