As I sit here writing this post the Bulldogs and the Eels are locked in furious combat on the playing field, the noise is quite loud so I am not quite sure how it is that I don’t find it particularly distracting. For those not in Oz I am referring to Rugby League Football, the players for the most part are huge and it can be a pretty brutal game. But it is also very skillful if you understand the rules of engagement and Australia has lots of great players, there was a time when I felt bereft at the end of a sporting season, it gave me hours of enjoyment earlier in my life.
So even though I don’t follow any of it anymore, it has an almost comforting feel for me, the sound of a game of football, strange but true. It can never replace being actively involved in your own life but I do think that there is a place for taking the time to appreciate the amazing gifts and talents that such athletes display. I’ve written before about the way in which Ayrton Senna the great Formula One driver was a role model for me and for my brother, being inspired by incredible people can be a wonderful motivating force in life.
But at the end of the day it is where that inspiration takes you that really matters, at some point we all need to make some kind of meaning out of our lives, even if that meaning is simply to have a good life. Being yourself was a big part of the positive message I used to get from following Senna, “Be yourself, everybody else is taken!” said Oscar Wilde.
I’m doing my best to take my own good advice, and if the sound track is sometimes the roar of the crowd and the sound of the ref’s whistle, then so be it. There’s four minutes to go and it’s become a bit of a slaughter but some nice play from the dominating team so goodnight from me!
This is a very nice place to be, happy in myself and happy to encounter the people who pass my way, knowing that my time is always well spent, having no particular investment in certain outcomes. Open to whatever spirit wants to send my way, manifesting out of the quantum soup, but most of all ENJOYING LIFE! It’s supposed to be fun, that was Abraham on dating but you can apply it to the whole of life, it really, truly is supposed to be a fun experience, so milk it for all that it’s worth! And keep shedding the old skins as you sweep into the new chapters that are opening up at every intersection, I’m trying to do them all, it’s a time of fusion of all things.
If I meet my life joyfully it will send that energy back to me multiplied so don’t forget about devotion and loving what you are doing, also have proper time off! I am feeling the need for a moment out of time from my wonderful community, perhaps I can have a day with the land that speaks to me, certainly I can connect with the Mother, she is close to me at this time. I am being held in the soft and yet strong energy of the protective feminine, it keeps me safe even as I am cradled with the greatest of tenderness, always allowing in that which will bring up the qualities to be lost, and those to be found.
Alice in Wonderland.
It is a journey into the rabbit hole indeed, Lewis Carroll would be quite at home in the realms of quantum physics, I sometimes see myself as Alice, believing six impossible things before breakfast! The things one is asked to wrap one’s brain around, the only show in town as far as I am concerned, except of course that nothing actually gets left out, because it’s all one anyway!!
Whoo Hoo……….Bring it on…………shanti, shanti, shanti…………
Be yourself, everybody else is taken! from Oscar Wilde, here is Abraham talking about lining up with with who we truly are, alignment with self, or a merging with another in alignment with our essential selves. Here is Dating, Abraham style! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MqDLd34q_E
