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.

love your life,

What You Don’t Want Me To Say


Pain, Love…

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

disclosurepain is human.
love transcends.
at any given moment, you exist in a space
that accommodates, integrates, and celebrates both.
it is a dance;
through practice, patience, awareness and presence,
you feel the balance, counterbalance, and
distance from shore;
the ebb and the flow,
always eager to show,
what culminates every few thoughts or so…
be fully here. pay attention.
pay heed to the honesty of your heart.
love the reflections,
and face them authentically.
pain is human.
love transcends.

love your life,
tb

p.s. love trance-sends.

Love Universal, by Djembe and Canvas

Love Universal, by Djembe and Canvas

it’s fascinating how we explore the emotional range, all the way from the darkest shadows, to the purest, natural light.

what’s a little challenging is recognizing the ways it’s projected, reflected, and made manifest out in “the world”.

we’re not always quick to recognize it in everyone who comes across our path, nor do we necessarily see it in the little bird we’d made eye-contact with. we are more anxious than excited by solar flares…

we didn’t see it in the rolling waves of the water’s edge; didn’t feel it on the wind; didn’t notice it when the clock read 09:09, 10:10, or 11:11…

but, we’re starting to.

we’re recognizing it in the waves of peaceful, unified protests, crowding the public places, reverberating instantly throughout the world through our light-speed social and information networks.

we’re increasingly aware of and seeing through age-old façades and illusions employed by manipulative storytellers.

we’re ever more compassionate toward our fellow Earth inhabitants, the flora and fauna, and what lies in the soil beneath our feet, clear to the core of our fine, celestial home.

we’re learning the balancing act of yin/yang, masculine/feminine, black/white, right/wrong, and recognizing the power and ease in this, that, and the other.

we’re witnessing a generation of children, born with the tools and inherent abilities to make discoveries, challenge our assumptions, and lead in the heart-centered way.

this is the now adventure. this is the possibility of conscious co-creation, awakening the vast potentials we’ve allowed to lie dormant.

it all reflects back to us the clarion call to embrace, integrate, and elevate.

be love.

love your life,
tb
