Potential Awareness

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

P1050242.RW2the issue isn’t about becoming more fully aware of our own potential.

the issue is that we are.

it’s what doesn’t let us rest at night. it’s what erodes an “okay” day into something barely tolerable. it’s what weighs on our minds when we’re toiling away, pushing forward in tasks, careers, obligations, routines and rigmarole that serves someone else, but always leaves us feeling empty, stuck, bored, apathetic, unfulfilled and incomplete.

what’s worse, is when we’ve gone so far as to train ourselves right out of trusting our intuitive impulses, our heart stirrings, and our higher truths. what remains are many questions, and the many variations of quiet desperation. we’re now fully in survival mode.

sure, you’re strong enough. but, life isn’t only about strength. that’s just a symptom of the idea of competition. true strength lies beyond effort, beyond force, inside the vast arena of surrender, and love. there, is lightness.

the body must adapt. it takes the cue and initiates protection mechanisms. our very cellular structure remolds itself: “we’ll keep you alive, dammit!” our minds mix the mortar, while our hearts prepare the bricks. shut it down, turn it off…

5, 10, 20, 30 years go by… gosh, where did the time go?

plans were made, plans were forgotten… sort of, but not really; it’s tough to let go when nothing on the horizon ever really looked promising. situations and circumstances arose, efforts were begrudgingly invested, challenges were faced, compromises were made, yet something still and always eluded us…

what if, wherever you are, whoever you are, however you are, is perfect? what if, now, you turn the page, and begin a new chapter? shift your point of view: yesterday, five minutes ago, thirty seconds ago, a single thought ago, is irrelevant; it only exists in your imagination. you’re reinvented with every breath! summon a new courage!

what if, instead of needing to know the outcome, and planning every detail, you’d take one small step – based on what’s immediately exciting, interesting, desirous; that which genuinely resonates – and remain open, without expectation as to results, to whatever may come? what if it’s either gonna be a passionate yes! or, forget about it?

unsettling! panic. anxiety. but…excitement! curiosity. wonder.

a door is open.

What You Don’t Want Me To Say


Road Signs

roadblocks, hurdles, and speedbumps are omens; signal flares indicating that a shift in perspective is in order.

you’ve asked, desired, intended, now heed the signs and synchronicities, regardless of whether what’s presented itself gets labeled “good”, “bad”, or “wtf”.

The Reason Being

shine a light

as humans, we thrive when we have something to be passionate about; something that allows us a way to channel, direct, and express limitless energy and potentialities, lest we stagnate and, eventually, erupt.

given that idea, when you look at that which you have chosen as an outlet, is it heavy, or is it light (energetically, spiritually speaking)?

does it introduce muddy weight, or does it have a certain, effortless, lightness (though it may be physically demanding)?

does it benefit the many, or all, or merely profit the one?

does it give, contribute, and enhance, or detract, withdraw, and do harm?

the answers inform you as to whether or not you’re truly aligned with what resonates – a purposeful, real-you calling – or taking on a role defined for you, outside of you, while you’re doing your best to make the square peg fit into the round hole.

what will be your legacy?

“When we intentionally experience sincere, positive emotions, such as caring, compassion or appreciation for someone or something, the heart processes these emotions and begins to become coherent and sends out positive information throughout the entire body.” Institute of Heartmath

thus, as it is for the one, it reverberates alike into the many.
