Planting the magical seeds of intention
“The intangible represents the real power of the universe. From it springs all life and power and the love of all.”—Bruce Lee
Just a quick note on this last weekend before Christmas.
My Qigong experience has been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. It has helped me embody the energy I write about in all my books. I loved learning that even scientists recognize that 96 percent of the universe is completely invisible. All the really important stuff is indiscernible to the naked eye.
To focus on the physical (that measly four percent) is to completely miss the boat. In E-Squared, I compared it to putting all your attention on a fingernail. We must remind ourselves over and over again: There is SO MUCH MORE.
A few things I’ve learned:
1.Eliminate the word chronic. Nothing is chronic except our thoughts that expect things (our bodies, lives, etc) to be repeat copies of yesterday. Life and energy is always moving and it only becomes chronic when we let our energy become stagnant.
2. Get out of the way. Just like I don’t have to think about digestion (my stomach, pancreas and other digestive organs do it without me coming up with a 7-point plan), my life works best when I don’t monitor it, when I allow the unfathomable life force to have its way.
3. Marvel at the energy field. As the Course in Miracles repeats ad nauseum, I am not a body. I am free. So my physicality (my body during this lifetime) is just one blip of the bigger field of who I am. This has helped me reframe my relationship with Taz.
I’ve noticed myself lately thinking, “Wonder what Taz is doing?” When she was in Barcelona, I’d have the same thought, knowing I’d see her again, knowing we were forever connected.
It brings peace to think of her enjoying a new dimension, a place I will one day enjoy, as well. I don’t know exactly where that is or what it’s like. But it makes me excited to know I’ll one day find out.
As Rob Delaney recently said on the BBC, we’re all just temporary gatherings of stardust anyway.
It is my staggering privilege to be here with all of you beautiful gatherings of stardust and I hereby plant the magical seed of intention that each and every one of your holidays will be meaningful, blessed and full of ginormous love.
Signing out from a tiny town somewhere in Kansas.
Have the best holiday season of your life. #222 Forever
