The Clever Flower

I set down my blue folding chair and prepared myself for a long consultation. Breathe. Relax. Let go of my thinking beast. Sense the loves of the day.
I anticipated a long, profound discourse with this particular beauty. Was I ever wrong!
“Follow your life. It will reveal and transport you to your dreams.” She said, before shutting the door on my expectations.
That sounded backwards to me. But, was she right? What I want (my dream) is subsequent to what life has already given me?
I wondered if this flower was very clever or, my mind was less so. Maybe today will reveal, both.

The Advice of a Flower

What are you suffering?” Asked the flower.
Excuse me?
“What are you suffering?” Came the question again.
I looked closer at the beauty standing right in front of me.
I do not understand the question.
“Well, are you suffering your own thoughts and feelings? Thoughts and feelings of other people? Or, the thoughts and feelings saturating the atmosphere?”
I imagine I am suffering all three of them.
“If so, which of these do you imagine you have influence over?
I guess, my own thoughts and feelings.
“Good. Now answer me this, how do you influence these?”
I believe thoughts and feelings are influenced by my past; built upon past thoughts and feelings.
“Yes, this seems true. So if you want to influence your suffering, how would you go about it?
I would give myself some distance from my own thinking, and give myself a ‘thinking time out’; which may give me a ‘feeling time out’. Which would give me a break from my suffering.
“That sounds logical.”
What would I do in the meantime, while taking this time out?
“Another good question. Breathe. Relax. Exercise. Love. Think of it as a mini vacation. A series of mini vacations like this can provide you with enough quiet time to help you gain more insight into your relationship with your suffering. This insight, can propel you to a new location, a place of understanding; that already exists inside of you.”
I took a moment to watch my merry-go-round of thoughts and feelings, turned around and walked to where my peace and love resides.
I looked back again and realized my everyday thoughts and feelings seemed less important. My relationship with the world, with others, made a little more sense. I could see my suffering was not who I am. It was just a relationship I chose to have with the world at times. I could choose it. Or not.
“What is your choice?” Asked the flower.
Today I choose to listen to the advice of a flower. To breathe, relax, exercise and love. Most of all, Love!

Grounded in Love

How come the current condition of life disturbs me so much? I ask.
“We imagine your perception of reality is being disrupted.” The flower says.
Well, ‘you’ can put it that way.
“How would you put it?”
I feel ill, angry, disappointed, frustrated, stressed – and that is just the beginning of how it is disrupting my life. Can you help me to understand what is going on?
“We could but, we are not sure it is what your conscious mind will accept, in its current location.”
Okay, okay, you lost me right there. Location?
“Let’s back up a few steps. Here is a possible order of how you arrived where you are now. We will call this a ‘location’.
“The order might be; invisible (psychic) atmospheric, energy field, body, unconscious, thought/feelings, body/feelings – with the recycling of thoughts (seeking resolution) and feelings (responding to seeking resolution). Ending, where it all started. Invisible (psychic) atmosphere (this time recreated by all your own thinking/feeling). Which, if you think about it is, a location.
Okay, that is a whole sack of confusion! Can you simplify it?
“No.”
That is it. That is your insight today?
“Yes. What you are thinking and what you are feeling is a relative truth based on your history, where you have lived inside your mental/emotional beingness; the location of your livingness – which, if you think about it – cycles through different states. Happy. Sad. Angry. Proud. Hate. Love. Vulnerable. Nationalistic. Nepotistic. Competitiveness. This list of separation from your highest being perspective (who you really are as a true human being-in relationship with the Love of the world-in relationship with other human beings, with nature, with Spirit/Soul), this list can be viewed as locations you visit. Let’s call it an unconscious choice or (as recently described) an unconscious bias.”
Wow! That is a lot to take in. To, understand.
“Yes. For now, just remember your ‘Big Loves’. Of people. Of places. Of Spirited things. That will bring you to a starting point. A location. From there, view all those other thoughts and feelings locations you travel to, daily. Then, come visit me again. Once you ground yourself in Love.”
I stepped into my Love location and looked ‘out there’ at my thinking/feeling world. It was busy with worry, concern and fear. But I wasn’t. Maybe there is something to this Love location after all!

One Being

“Pick me. And you get all of us.”
“I don’t understand.” I responded.
“We are one and the same. Like human beings. All one. And, the same.”
“I struggle with that.” I confessed.
“You only struggle in your thoughts. Not in your heart. Recognize the color of your thinking, its journey from true beauty, and come home to One being.”
“It can’t be that easy.” My thinking challenged.
In that moment, I could see the answer clearly. We ARE one being!
Then. . .

Angel Kisses

When one angel kisses, many follow. (There was one, a couple of days ago. Now look. Look. Company!)

Breathe Me In

“Breathe me in,” says the lovely rose this morning. “I can soften your errant thoughts, inflate your sunken heart, and raise your gentle hand to honor others.”

Immortal. Eternal. Love.

[What she whispered this morning] Our essential beingness is Love. This is not a choice. Not limited to – nor only measurable by others, upon ourselves. Or, for others. But shared by all. We can imagine this is soul. Spirit. Where we are, complete. No less. No more. Love is a state of beingness. Immortal. Eternal. Like the air we breathe. The water we drink. Love is the essential nature of aliveness. Before, during and after-Life.

Thank You My Lovely!

Well jump.
I am afraid. I can’t jump that far. Or, that high.
Maybe not your physical body. But your energy body is boundless. Leap over me. And as you do, I will purify you with my essence. My scent of living love will heal you.
I was dubious. But what did I have to lose? So I let go of my lack of imaginative mind and leapt with reckless abandonment.
As I glided over these beauties, My fear, my sadness, my insecurities were rendered harmless; drained of their potency, down into the earth and I soared even higher – riding an air current of Joy.I did land on the other side of these miraculous beauties, looked back and saw my now fading body, as an unfamiliar self across the way.
No matter. I was ecstatic to be. Alive. Empty of doubt. Of fear. Of loss. Full to the top of my heart with New Life. “Thank you my lovely!”

The Earth, The Great Alchemizer

I hear the whispers. They are calling. I go. I stand before them, silently. They continue to call, “Come, come closer.” My physical body is afraid of their pointed protection. But my energy body dives right into their beauty. I cannot resist. At first, I feel the love streaming into my heart. I capitulate completely. The, the thorns, those weapons of truth, scrape my soul of its fear thoughts, fear feelings; and drives them into the center of the great alchemizer, the Earth. How long it takes, I do not know. For what is time, when loved. I remember my physical body, my temporary home, and stand before these beauties once again. Whole. Complete. Healed. Thinking clear. Feelings of love. Soul ready for the day. “Thank you!”
