Recently I have had the opportunity to play with this in great detail and thought it would be cool to share.
As we live our lives we tend to allow most of it to be created from our headspace. Our thoughts are constantly running, playing back on what has occurred in the past and what may occur in the future as a result of our actions that we have not yet placed. When we are doing this, we are not paying attention to what is actually going on around us, we become oblivious to the moment.
What does it sound like when you lift your head off your pillow in the morning and slide your legs out of bed? How do your sheets feel against your legs? (Right now I’m living in a car so this doesn’t quite apply to me till this trip is done. lol) How about when you put your feet down on the carpet or hardwood floor? Cold? Warm? What about the sounds around you when all of this is happening? Is there air coming through vents? Can you here a light humming of any fan or appliance you have around you? Is someone else downstairs making noise? Do you have a pet that is asking your attention or wanting food? (again doesn’t apply right now as the cats are at home, but normally its paw in the face) What is your next move as you go about your day? Is it already determined? Or is it multiple possibilities?
The point I am trying to make here through observation of detail is; we don’t pay attention to detail when we live in headspace, and we miss out on all the humor that comes with these details. These little nuances that make the very moment you are in wonderfully perfect.
Instead, we find ourselves thinking about the future or the past. What happened the night before or day before, what may or may not happen on the drive to work or when we get to work. All things that are pulling us away from right now. Right now, where we can be totally at peace and happy, leaving every door open for infinite possibility as opposed to closing it off with thoughts of the future and past that limit what will happen RIGHT NOW.
Our awareness and heart guidance is ALWAYS there, it’s simply shut out and faint because of all the mind work and thoughts of past or future that are consuming our minds. “What if this happens?” “What will this person think?” “What if it’s not the BEST choice?” “I don’t know what will happen if I make this choice.” These are the thoughts pulling us away, making us unhappy and stuck. So long as these thoughts are running our experience, we will not hear or be in line with what our heart is trying to tell us. Quiet the mind, the answers are ALL there, they are simply being blocked out. In the moment, you can hear and feel exactly where you are meant to be.
One thing we must accept is that we are unable to control life. By that I simply mean, we cannot control what another person will think, what will happen if we take a risk, what will happen if we quit a job or meet another person, all we can control is whether we follow our heart and remain completely vulnerable to possibility. That is something we can never change, we can only be at peace with it, and have fun with it.
Life is a game of experiencing all there is on this planet, not just what’s in our linear scope. We remain so limited by our jobs, the friends we have, our family structures, our finance, our belief systems and what we think we can and can’t do. These are not concrete! They can change! Open your potential back up! Open the doors to possibility! Don’t think something is crazy or can’t be done because of a reason the mind has created. Go out and live life with infinite possibility and follow your heart. When we are at this point, we are aligned with your purpose.
Right here, Right Now, Loving
