Exploring the Possibilities

Breaking the Shell October 10, 2010

Ever feel as though you’re incubating…..under the warmer like a chick in an egg, waiting for the right time to hatch? I appreciate what Mr. Scptt-Maxwell has to say.

“You have neat, tight expectations of what life ought to give you, but you won’t get it. That isn’t what life does.

Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you. Every seed destroys its container or else there would be no fruition. ”

– Florida Scott-Maxwell, Playwright, Jungian Analyst, Author

It’s up to us to burst from that shell, that egg and to make sense of the world we’re delivered into….of this I know for sure….tempering it with who we seem to be….delivering our actions in a way that satisfies our passions, desires, our heart.

So, I work these days to brush away the broken shell to ready myself for the new work at hand, clearing away all matter that might be in my way.

I’m finding patience helps, breathing is a must, a few key allies to remind me of what I already know, but often forget as I’m sweeping, and of course sleep, renewing sleep is a must. Oh, and having a fire to sit by in the morning, the better to stir my fires within.

Loving the possibilities,

Seven Years Ago Today… July 5, 2010

I opened my business….my Carl House business.

Seven years ago there was so much I did not know.

Seven years ago I demonstrated ‘moving forward as if’….as if I could create whatever my mind imagined, and more.

Seven years ago today I was, like today, dreaming up things and seeing what would happen ‘or better’ as I coaxed forward that vision.

Seven years ago today I took a deep breath and sat with a fine bottle of champagne, with my husband at the time, on a fine leather coach and sighed and looked around at a post event and said,

‘Wow….this is really a beautiful room, such a cool place.’

Seven years.

I wonder at what I’ll be sighing at, smiling at as I look back to today in seven years.

Incredible no doubt. I’ll intend that…

and more.

We are free to create and be whoever and whatever we want.

In EVERY moment.

I choose big, brave, bold, brilliant and heartful.

Why not?

With gratitude for the lessons, the journey, the people and where I find myself this morning….looking out on green, surrounded by heartbeats, standing firmly on wood floors, comforted by cool air and a vision which is only growing.

It’s not WHAT you’re doing that matters… May 16, 2010

…it’s how what you’re doing AFFECTS you that matters.

Where are activities, beliefs, people, your ‘story’ a decoy to what is true in you??

Holding secrets, (not the kind I was referring to in my last post), or being true to who you really are, being less than real to yourself, or the ones you love about WHO you are, is antithetical to a true spiritual life.

Just thinking.

As we ‘expand’ and move into our hearts, being less than who we really are feels as awful as mosquito bites all over our body or swimming with rats. (I don’t enjoy rats in any manner).

Where might we tap into what we might fuel ourselves with ALL by ourselves, (hint, generated through heart focus) rather than trying to get seeming ‘goodies’ through others, or chasing after empty sources which we work to embue with meaning.

I’m not sure how to be much clearer at present. I know that something bigger than my mere human self is key for this expansion and goal toward self actualization, moving more into my spiritual self.

My heart tells me so. My ego works to refute that and more.

Ahhh well. Be that as it may. I’ll continue to speculate, though, Proust said it quite well.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

Happiness comes from…. March 25, 2010

caring more….not less.

I heard that thought this evening and it made me sit awhile and think. I’m not sure I agree. Caring more?? Caring too much can break your heart. Caring less can surely leave you lonely, yet, to be disengaged separates you from the pain of caring too much which leads to inevitable disappointment…time and again.

A broken heart. Truly there are worse things. If exercised right, the heart is one strong muscle. Mine has had its share of exercise for sure.

With each disappointment I come back, eventually, more fully to myself.

It’s the ‘I am’ principle perhaps.

We are complete within our selves and caring more….ultimately for ourselves, creates strong, able selves.

And strong, able selves can love others better.

So I suppose I’ve come full circle…happiness just might come from caring more, not less.

And round and round the world we go.

It’s no wonder I’m so tired at night.

Whewww…so what is ‘carefree’, not caring more, or less????

Oy vey! I think I need a hug!! 馃檪

Entelechy and Your Life to Live. January 15, 2010

I discovered a new word while reading early this morning….and I like it.

ENTELECHY
en鈰卼el鈰卐鈰卌hy鈥傗俒en-tel-uh-kee]
n路tel路e路chy (臎n-t臎l’沫-k膿)
n. pl. en路tel路e路chies
In the philosophy of Aristotle, the condition of a thing whose essence is fully realized; actuality.

In some philosophical systems, a vital force that directs an organism toward self-fulfillment.
1. a realization or actuality as opposed to a potentiality.
2. (in vitalist philosophy) a vital agent or force directing growth and life.

I’m not sure how I’ve missed this word throughout the years though am learning that some things don’t come to us until it’s frankly, just TIME….and then they do.

I sat recently with the thought or thoughts around self actualization….what that means to me, what it might feel like, or feels like when I am there and certainly when I’m not. It’s clearly a feeling thing, but I am realizing that most of my world is around feeling. I always come out strongly on one side of Myers Briggs or DISC profiles, there is no guessing as to my bent.

But how to best realize our individual ‘bents’ is a meaningful question. Often we learn what it ISN’T before we know what it IS.

So, I write and write and write and as I do, the layers peel away and I am privy to what matters most, to how my path might best be directed. That feels a worthy pursuit or endeavor…time well spent leading to actions meaningful, making the mundane just the fuel to catapult us on our path.

And then another word was presented to me today…..’evil’. I considered the backwards spelling of that…’live’. I pray everyday for the courage to live in my absolute truth, despite my fears, despite anything else.
