Surrendering to the Present

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

These days, I am flowing in an apparent emptiness. I am in stillness like the desert I live in.  It is beyond the unknown. This emptiness was brought on by my intent to let things unfold, rather than by forcing my will. This is a full surrender to the present moment. Not past, not future. Only now. There is much power here.

Ease Amidst The Unknown

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

“If you speak to a person who is standing in a powerless position and tell her to take her power, she  becomes frightened because you are implying change. She must step into the mystery of the unknown to become powerful.”

Flight of the Seventh Moon / Lynn V. Andrews

I am seeing beauty within the unknown and it is creating ease. As I let go of fear and resistance, it is a peaceful place with wonderful possibilities. I did not expect this feeling. It took so long to get here. I can live in the unknown now and feel ease. From here, with focus and intent, I will find my way.

Beauty

Life is incomplete without a sense of beauty. Beauty fills you with positive energy and thereby strengthens you. Beauty is found in different ways. Where do you find beauty?

Challenge: Eliminate Energy Drains

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Energy drains are the situations, people, or things that keep you from moving forward. Energy drains are counterproductive forces in your life.  Here are some examples of things that can drain a person’s energy:

  • wasting time or using time inefficiently
  • unnecessary conflict
  • worry
  • clutter and lack of organization
  • relationships that only “take” from you
  • doing too many things


Exercise:

Name 3 things that are currently draining your energy. Then, for each one identify what you will do by the end of the year to eliminate that energy drain.
