A letter to me.

Develop equanimity, accept what is, practice insight meditation every day, and you spend less time in craving, clinging, addiction, hate, depression, anger, aversion, fear etc.

And by spending less time in that, you spend more time in the good stuff. Peace, love, acceptance, trust, joy, enthusiasm etc.

The sankaras untie. The attachments release. The good stuff remains. The balance tips more and more in your favour.

And the more time you spend in the good stuff, the more time you spend transmitting good vibrations out to the universe.

And the more you transmit the good stuff, the more good stuff comes your way, is attracted to you, flows to you, sticks to you.

You spent the first 35 years of your life not really so aware.
And still everything was just fine.

You spent the last 11 years growing in awareness, alignment, presence, gratitude, patience, kindness, generosity, positive thoughts, positive words, positive actions, visualisation, yoga, meditation, health, exercise, good lifestyle, good nutrition, and feeling the good feelings and vibrations and dwelling on those (without attachment) etc.
And everything has been amazing.

Dreams have come true. Finances have improved. Travel has happened. Love has flourished. Friendships have blossomed. Fears have been walked through.
Big life changes have been embraced and achieved.

This stuff just works.

Self doubts and worries about ‘something bad happening’ are unfounded and irrelevant. But they are also allowed. Just not something to be dwelt on.

All the evidence shows that everything is perfect.
And always will be.

You will always have everything you need to handle whatever arises.
And abundance is growing and growing in every area of your life.
Always has.
Always will.

Just ‘knowing how all this works’ and your belief and actions in alignment with this process, guarantee that it will continue to work in this way.

And when it doesn’t, then yetha butha.
The reality. As it is. Not as you would like it to be.
Accept it all.

And it’s time to accept that you don’t need to know HOW stuff will play out – and you can’t know. The steps from here to the clearly visualised goals. The minutiae and detail will handle themselves. The universe has got this. And if it doesn’t play out how you would like it to or think it should, then suck it up and carry on. Abundance may well involve a journey through some debt. It’s abundance nonetheless.

Have faith and trust in the process. It is not yours to fathom or fuss over.

And don’t you worry about those around you scuppering your voyage.
They can’t.

Play your part and the universal laws can do nothing else than fulfill their role.
100% nailed on guarantee of ‘success’.

You just get on with transmitting the joy and thankfulness and pure feelings of abundance and creation. That’s your job. That’s why you’re here. To create. To experience the feelings of contrast. The human condition. The strength and frailty. The magnitude and minuscule bits and bobs of being on this plane of existence. What a gift! What a joy. To be here in this human form today, right now, breathing in and out and smelling the flowers each waking day.

You asked for this gift. You got this gift. Now live this gift.

Your eternal form will look on these chapters fondly, like holiday snaps from a sunny beach, with a brightly colored, over-sized towel and salt that glistens on your temples.

Just keep moving the pen. Writing the life you live. And the story will continue to unfold.
When you feel it, move the pen.
When you don’t feel it, move the pen.

You KNOW how all this works.
You KNOW what is right and wrong.
You KNOW what to do.

Listen to the little voice, that is growing in volume.
Listen to the god of all things.

And flow. Flow. Flow.
With the universal current.

Flow. Align. And Act.

You know what to do.

You are energy. You are flow. You are godparticleglue.
Remember who you are – and tune in.  Just tune in.  And go with the flow.
No upstream. No strive. No need must should.

Just be.
As you are.
Eternal. Pure. Creative Energy in the stream of universal flow.

Choices abound.

The choice to think this thought. To dwell on it.
To allow positive feelings to arise, fuelled by these thoughts.

To choice to feel these feelings. To dwell in them.
To allow positive thoughts to arise, fuelled by these feelings.

And to speak words of truth. Fuelled by these thoughts and feelings.
Bringing fresh energy to the goodness as it bubbles up inside you.

And from these thoughts, feelings and words, to then act.
With inspired movement.
In the flow, the fast flow, the ebb and flow, but always downstream, feet pointed forward, sparkle wind swept foam rushing past your ears.

And you create.

Thoughts & Feelings.
The transmission of creation. The attractor of like and like and like.

Words.
The intent. The rocketshipgas.

Action.
Step forward.
The path appears under your feet, moment by moment.

You know what to do.
And you know what helps this flow.
You gradually feel the need to work with the body, the mind, the breath, the diet, the clean intake of a toxic free life, in substance and image and pastime and and and.

You know what to do.
Because you know who you are.

You’ve just got to remember. Remember. Remember.

flow. golden flow.

Go with the flow.
Don’t push and strain.

Hard work gets stuff done for sure.
But it also serves to generate more of the same.

Hard.
Work.

So sniff out the easy path.
The least resisting route.
The smooth journey to the top.
(Whatever on heaven and earth the top may be).

Listen.
Be still.
And, in the still of your heart.
Allow the answers to come.

Getting away from that constant chitter-chatter within will serve you well in this.

And then certainly try not to resist the way the flow is nudging you and cajoling you and willing you on.

Feels scary that way?
For sure it might.
But fear is an illusion.
Sensations and stories and old methods on loop.

You’ve got to break the cycle sometime.
May as well be now.

The natural flow of creation is unstoppable.
Mighty.
Powerful energy that keeps on rolling on and on and on.

So, why resist?

Jump in.
Aim your feet downstream.
And enjoy the ride.

See that rainbow overhead?
There’s gold at the end.
Just within reach.

Accept This.

“You should write – you should work – you should sit and meditate – you should get this chore done – that chore done – you should exercise – you should do yoga – you should organise – you should call – you should should should should should.”

This moment is perfect. However it feels. And whatever you do to try and change how you feel, or to fix something, or be in conflict with what IS right now, will just create more conflict and discomfort.

So stop. Descend into the body. And breathe.

Accept. Accept. Accept. Everything. As it is.
All of it.
The feelings and brain activity and sensations and urges and energetic surges and every last little bit of stuff.

Accept it all.

Then maybe the thoughts and feelings and will quieten and peace will arise.
Or maybe not.

That doesn’t matter either.

Just.
Accept.

feels & fuel

  • Fear is a sensation, fuelled by thought.
  • Sadness is a feeling, fuelled by thought.
  • Craving is a feeling, fuelled by thought.
  • Anger and frustration are feelings, fuelled by thought.

The trigger to each of these isn’t easily deduced – and it matters not.

It may be a thought, a sight, a sound, a hormone, an energetic wave, a touch, or something eaten that starts the feeling in the body. Or maybe the feeling just arose.

Where it starts is not relevant. What we do with it is the key.

To observe the feeling, without reaction, with rolling into thought, this is the key to change, to release, to equanimity. And if it stays awhile, that’s all just ok too.

The breath helps.

And it’s ok, you know, to just have these feelings, you’re allowed, they’re allowed, to just be there, it’s not a sign of failure, no negative points score is being amassed, you can just be, just like this, all ok, allowed, free.

Free to be. Whatever you feel. Right here. Right now.

a little recipe

 

Feel the emotions of the final goal. The dream.
Make it real in your mind. A clear vision. And feeeeeel it.

Then focus on the next action.
Take one step.
Don’t worry about the result.

How you get to the final goal is not relevant.
The universe will handle that.

The next step is possible.
A vision of the final goal is possible.
Filling in everything in between… well, madness that way lies.

 

Day 1

It’s January 20th 2017. America has a new president. And I have been developing new life in this big, big country, non-stop for over a year now.

I watched some ‘personal development’ videos recently.  I was struck by the use of ‘feeling’ to increase the power of manifestation.

To begin by feeling the pain and dislike and negative emotional state of something – to then move to seeing the solution – and then to see AND FEEL the solution and the glorious vision of the future.

Not to be scared of the negative or to try and flee or suppress or or or… but to start there, to make that the impetus, oomph and fuel for the new state of mind and heart. And to transmit that out there (or simply to increase my attention and belief – it matters not if it’s ‘magic’ or nature).

So I am manifesting a powerful wonderful liberating successful and thoroughly healthy voice-career that helps and heal this universe and beyond. (Coupled with writing. Teaching. Travel. Cycling. Everythinging.)

I see the studio of the future forming in my mind’s eye, but, more importantly, I am now feeling the tingling thrill of what is being made.
