My Days Are Rarely As I Think They Should Be

I came across this e-mail I sent to my dear friends a few weeks back.
It is a reminder to me that every single day is an opportunity to step into the sacred, which for me is a source of walking in joy & laughter.

Today I thought I was going to begin work underneath our house (Pook's Hill) in order to clean out and organize the unseen cluttered part of our home - thus honoring my willingness to work on my inner self - my unconsciousness self. Soooo..... I put on my work clothes walked down the exterior stairs of our home and entered that portion of our house that is underneath our living space. It is tall enough to stand in and somewhat protected from the weather. As a result it has all the stuff that we (Steve and I) do not know what to do with, stored there waiting for recognition and then release or use. I was absolutely overwhelmed. I sat down and looked closely at my do-able options. During this moment, I also honored my willingness to take physical steps to clear the outside manifestation of my own inner workings... I took a deep breath and asked for truth.

Then I saw... sitting amongst all of that clutter were materials just waiting to be used in the completion of our kitchen. I suddenly realized, with absolute clarity, that in this situation the best way to begin the clearing out of our hidden clutter was to begin finishing the projects that were very visible to us. By so doing much of the hidden clutter would be put to very wonderful use and it would be cleared out from underneath our house thus clearing space from that which could not be so obviously seen. A twofold healing of clutter. So now I am back to doing what I REEEAAALLY wanted to do - finish my kitchen. Yet in my willingness to deal with the not so obvious I was brought back to what my heart was yearning for, but with a difference - I am now setting to work on my kithcen remodel as a sacred action of devotion to myself, my purpose and who I am in the world. YES! Isn't life amazing.

Tid Bits for Now

My dreams. They swell in my heart, pushing out, out, out until my heart bursts open to new worlds... and then the swell begins again, different this time. This wave is one of gratitude and awe of my unfolding life. I know I will have the courage to share more as I find myself at home here on this blog... and so for now I share tid bits.

LIFE into Life

So I want to write... here I am with a BIG BLANK PAGE staring me in the face. All those thoughts, great insights, funny anecdotes and meaningful stories have fled and gone into hiding -deep into the forested, nutrient rich wilds of my mind.

What a f..king adventure! The hunt is on and I am not hunting for the kill. I am hunting for the life, the vitality, the essence of what brings LIFE into life.

Want to join me?.....Hang onto your hat... it can be a wild ride...
