Chopra states : “The source of all creation is pure consciousness . . . pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in nature.”
Pure Potentiality…that’s what we are! And how I manage to hide my light under a bushel and stay in my comfort zone, playing so so tiny in my life has been a mystery to me. But that mystery is unravelling, little by little, as I am learning to allow the fear, doubt, unworthiness, guilt, hurt feelings and anger that keep me stuck slowly be transmuted by changing the way I look at things. No need to overcome, but rather attach a different feeling! Oh my, this is so cool, and for me, probably the most challenging imperative of this entire journey. I see progress in myself, yes, but it takes mental vigilance minute to minute, especially in the area of fear. My word in the Franklin makeover this week is diligence, and I promise to be diligent in this endeavor. Especially diligent in reminding myself of the question: Do I pursue what I want, or do I continue to do what’s comfortable? I found this writing by C. Joybell C. that inspires me.
“I have realized; it is during the times I am far outside my element that I experience myself the most. That I see and feel who I really am, the most! I think that’s what a comet is like, you see, a comet is born in the outer realms of the universe! But it’s only when it ventures too close to our sun or to other stars that it releases the blazing “tail” behind it and shoots brazen through the heavens! And meteors become sucked into our atmosphere before they burst like firecrackers and realize that they’re shooting stars! That’s why I enjoy taking myself out of my own element, my own comfort zone, and hurling myself out into the unknown. Because it’s during those scary moments, those unsure steps taken, that I am able to see that I’m like a comet hitting a new atmosphere: suddenly I illuminate magnificently and fire dusts begin to fall off of me! I discover a smile I didn’t know I had, I uncover a feeling that I didn’t know existed in me… I see myself. I’m a shooting star. A meteor shower. But I’m not going to die out. I guess I’m more like a comet then. I’m just going to keep on coming back.”
This week’s webinar notes ended with:
Be still, and know that I am God
Be still, and know
I have facilitated meditations many times, still do, and these exact words, breaking the phrase down to the one word, is the way I lead the people into the silence!! And, my personal short prayer has been for years: Peace, be still. (see my Who is Diane? page) No coincidences in Spirit!
Love to all.
