What badass reality might be available if you let go of your treasured, but teeny-tiny vantage point?
Anything that does not bring you alive is too small for you.” — David Whyte
Unlike the intentions of many LOA aficionados who are envisioning new jobs or new cars or new significant others to snuggle with on the couch, most of my intentions revolve around ideas—beauty and joy, things I want to see happen in the world at large.
At the risk of sounding like a beauty contestant who gushes to the pageant emcee that she only wants “world peace,” I’ll go ahead and stand here, naked on the stage, and admit that my highest intentions revolve around all of us finally getting it that we all really love each other and knowing that there’s a heck of a lot of support available (in many different dimensions) that we’ve blocked by our limited mental constructs.
Today, at my group, we talked about loved ones on the other side. And how ridiculous it is to believe they’re no longer with us. Because of our very stubborn belief that you have to have a body to communicate, we miss a lot of cool things these loved ones are trying to tell us. Let’s just say they have a much bigger perspective. They’ve escaped from the echo chamber of fear that we so often experience on the material plane.
Annola shared a story about her dad. When he wants to get through to her daughter, his granddaughter who was born the same week he passed, he turns her TV off. I suppose that could be annoying if you’re right in the middle of an episode of “Orange is the New Black.” But you gotta admit, it’s hard to ignore him that way.
Cindy shared a story about her brother who died young and way before the average. She said it took her awhile to open to his presence. She said her intense grief completely thwarted his efforts.
But finally, she tuned in and now gets regular guidance that, as often happens, is much clearer and more loving than the guidance we might get from a friend still viewing life from the tunnel vision of a body.
She said to him one day, “Ya know, it would be a lot easier if you could figure out a clear way to make your presence known—like how about using electronics?”
A couple days later, she’s downstairs, folding laundry or something when booming music comes from upstairs. She’s irritated, wondering what her husband is doing. She meets him in the hallway and he’s also heading to the very LOUD music playing in the bathroom. Coming from a radio is an extremely loud rendition of one of her brother’s favorite songs.
The weirdest part is that radio—which they hadn’t used in years (it was shaped like a toy so they left it in the bathroom as a decoration)—had no batteries.
So I ask you? What’s a mental construct, that you’re completely sure is fact, that you’re now willing to throw overboard? Might open up a whole new conversation!!
