Are We Drowning in Noise?

November 26, 2014

I was at my favorite food coop last night.  I had a lively discussion with the manager about the volume of the music.  I told him that at times it was so loud that I couldn’t concentrate on my grocery list and just wanted to leave.  He was a good listener and said that he would turn the volume down and bring it to someone’s attention.  They were very busy and I did not give it too much more thought and went about my business.  I was standing in the vitamin aisle and all of a sudden my entire body relaxed and just melted into the floor.  They had turned down the music.  Then something magical happened.  I could hear this cacophony of human voices and the sounds of a bustling market.  It really was magical.

Are the sounds of life drowning in noise?

Truly the Truth

September 25, 2014

I have given up.

They will never see the truth.

Can you see the truth?

Can you see the truth if you don’t live the truth?

You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

What does that really mean?

Expectations

September 7, 2014

I know I have written before about letting go.  Specifically I want to write about letting go of expectations.  Let’s talk about people caring or not caring.  I know if I make the statement, “People don’t care”, there will be an uproar.  But, they really don’t.  Let me explain.  When I say that people don’t care I think I really mean that I cannot expect people to care.  This is a neutral position.  This is truly letting go of expectations.  People either care or they don’t and there is much gray area in between those two poles.  In fact, I doubt there is anyone alive who doesn’t care about something.  We all care about something.

“People don’t care” really just means that they don’t care about what I need for them to care about.  They don’t fulfill my expectations of them.  This is the letting go.  There is great freedom in letting go of expectations.

“But I have to expect certain things of certain people.”  Do you?  Do you really?

The Great Wash

August 13, 2014

As we sit with the absurdities around us we must let them wash over us.  Anything less creates stress and blockage.  If we are to have soaring spirits we must be quiet and listen.  Eventually we can get to a place where things can wash over.  I know at times it seems like the wave of a tsunami, but it will still wash over if we are quiet and still.  It does take practice.

This does not mean that we do not take action.  When we are called to action, however, we will be effective, clear, and forthright.

Sitting still is where we find true power.
