Exploring the Possibilities

How might WE rise….on this Easter Day April 24, 2011

Rise from the very beliefs, habits, associations, which hold us back from our true desires and potential.

Might nature guide us back to the places where we feel most alive?

Might sitting with our breath awhile remind us of other places we might arrive within ourselves?

I have felt over the last weeks the pull toward my own freedom as well as the anchor of my own habits, ‘stories’ from my past and inability at times to MOVE from where I feel momentarily stuck. And yesterday it was like thick glue arresting my heart and my soul.

And then the wakeup reminders we experience, (through people is how I seem mostly to receive them, they like actors clad in their own stories, their mannerisms a products of the many years which shaped them, their talk, their nuances)….all serving to take me more deeply into myself if I’m open to going there.

And I watch at how people pace themselves noticing their same mixtures of desire for ‘more’, (as in purpose in their lives), and too how they are drawn to desires I share, or where they also hold back with trepidation, hints of some unconscious fear.

Yet, at mid century point, many of us seem a bit protective of the lives we have created, branching out too much either in new terrain, physically or emotionally, is not always so welcome, certainly not if we’ve found a ‘groove’ which suits us in many ways.

Though I consider too how perhaps at times we ‘protest too much’ and a wandering outside our ‘safe’ zone might be a VERY good thing.

I feel the need, desire to ‘cloister in’ often, in myself….selfish or fearful at times, perhaps, but honest. And if honestly is selfishness, or rather, claiming who I am and what I desire for myself considered selfish, so be it.

Even so, I’ll encourage myself to wander more from time to time….and this week…..off to Italy I go.

Maybe I’ll run into the Pope…and he’ll offer some clues??

Perhaps we might all rise from the dead of our own limitations, our own lethargy which keeps us mired in energies of the past.

‘Rise up’ I say….’Rise up!’

Why not?

Eggs Smegs April 4, 2010

Eggzactly…

Every thing, person, experience, incident, episode, story, fantasy…has another side. Take eggs for example, fried, boiled, poached, scrambled, raw..

I spent a luscious Easter Sunday spring cleaning, readying porches for evenings under the stars, for friends and parties. I planted flowers, petunias, coleus, herbs and such….redecorated things a bit, shifting things here and there.

It was merely time to do so. The tipping point and all.

A new phase awaits……to play, invent, forgive, dance, growl, scowl if you choose, (but there’s been enough of that), meet new people, visit with old ones, say you’re sorry, issue a thank you, plan a holiday, pet your pups, engage in commerce, take on a cause, start a new business, (build the old one), devise a plan, eat good food, have a party, write a speech….no end to the possibilities. Truly.

Eggcellent says I! BB Webb

 

Don’t be afraid to rally… April 3, 2010

For whatever cause which you feel needs rallying.

I’ve quite a few frankly.

Yet another problem caused by deforestation!

Though my dogs have plenty of trees to occupy them where we live,
I’ve got another bee or two in my bonnet, demanding I take action.

Consider, how do you work to evolve the world into a place and space where you’d most like to live?

I like trees, I like clean air, the freedom to create and fair laws to allow me to pursue business pursuits which create jobs and services to help others.

My government has sadly let me down…so, it’s time to initiate some positive change.

If I don’t, who will?

Don’t be afraid to create a scene, just be sure your intent is clear and that it’s a cause worth fighting.

Moving from a few years of crashing train wrecks and nose dives, I can better decifer where I need to rally verus merely step away. Knowing when to respectfully move away and shift your focus is as important as knowing when to rally forth to initiate positive change.

While expressing gratitude for EVERY experience which comes your way, consider how you might discern for yourself where your attention is best spent, who is contributing positively to your life and certainly, where further action is called for….and march on my friend, rally forth when needed.

And should your cause capture my rally-bone as well, I’ll gladly march by your side.

Don’t sit there, rise up from the dead if you feel so called! Be your OWN champion!!

And oh, speaking of which, Happy Easter if that shoe fits!
