Posts Tagged ‘Possibilities’

Sometimes the best laid plans, the ones I was certain would be fulfilled are not to be. Sometimes things crack wide open, so light can fill the spaces and make room for something much grander than I could ever have imagined.

Friends, how often have you found this to be accurate in your life? It seems an oft proven principle to remember when life takes a left turn, when we meant to turn right. It wasn’t what we intended, but in time we find that something even better is down the road. Or an encounter with an important other happens while we are being steered off course, someone whose influence shapes and changes our lives in the future.

The possibilities are endless, and looking back we all have our stories of how this has proven true in our lives. And so a sustained trust comes to mind for these left turns, that, and a pinch of curiosity for the wide open potential that lies before us. Together, these shall be our guiding light…

Just for a moment…

Be still

and know that I am God

Be still

and know that I am Peace
right along side any state of war

Be still

and know that I am Joy
even amidst your sorrow

Be still

and know that I am Faith
in between the spaces of your doubt

Be still

and know that I am Limitless Possibilities
right next to your fears

Be still

and know that I am Clarity
right beside your confusion

Just for a moment…

Be still
Breathe deep
And know that I am God.

In a world filled with limitless possibilities, why do we sometimes choose limitation?  Why, indeed.  As conscious creators we paint the canvas and sometimes paint ourselves into a corner of limitation.  We become attached to the way we think things ought to be and feel obliged to give our attention to whatever doesn’t correspond to the way we think it ought to be.  We feel almost hypnotically entranced and seduced with the ways of the world.  We fall asleep and forget we have a choice.  And then we come and read Beth’s blog and wake up again :) as she, herself, also wakes up.

So what is a conscious creator to do then?  Refuse to acknowledge limitation of any sort.  That refusal means you simply withdraw your attention from limitations.  I know I said that as if it is simple.  It does become simpler every time you practice it.  Consistency is the cornerstone of practice.

Where we place our attention is what we agree with and unknowingly consent to having it as our dance partner.  Limitation is a dance partner that steps on our feet!  We keep dancing with it anyway – because it ought to be different!  And it will be, as soon as we make a conscious decision to dance with a different partner.  Limitless possibilities is so open and expansive; see how free you already feel dancing in the arms of inexhaustible potentialities.  Can you imagine that?  If not, just look around you right now – the Universe is so freely giving itself to you, it knows no bounds, it is without limits.  You are that Universe, you can freely give yourself to anything you choose and you do it with where you place your consciousness.  We were never meant to feel joy dancing with restriction, with limits, with restraint.  We were given the latitude to dance freely and without constraints.  That’s why we have free will and the right to exercise that free will fully or limit and restrict it.

So where shall we place our consciousness today – on the side of limitation or on the side of limitless, inexhaustible potentialities.  It’s our call.  Always.  Let’s let ourselves be seduced by a world without limits.  A world and a consciousness where anything can and does change in an instant.   Let’s make that our new dance partner.  Paso Doble anyone?

I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.
I’ve lost almost 300 games.
26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.

~Michael Jordan~

There you have it.  The path to success is failure.  Fail, fail again, fail
better.  Most of us would not be upright and walking today if we had
not tried to take that first step many times and fallen.  Don’t let your
fears overtake you; they didn’t when you were one years old.  That
little one year old you were had more innate wisdom before she/he
began listening to something other than themselves.  Listen now.
That innate wisdom is always available to you.  Don’t give up on
your heart’s desires and they won’t ever give up on you.

This is a Neville quote below and then following that my comments.  Neville Goddard did many lectures and was very popular in So. Cal back in the 50’s and 60’s.  He would fill a lecture hall and speak on the power of imagination.  It’s a lost art perhaps and here he talks about the art of revision.

“Now this morning I have brought you the means by which this mighty power in us may be awakened. I call it the art of revision. I take my day and I review it in my mind’s eye. I start with the first incident in the morning. I go through the day – when I come to any scene in my unfolding day that displeased me, or if it didn’t displease me, if it was not as perfect as I thought it could have been, I stop right there and I revise it. I re-write it, and after I have re-written it so that it conforms to the ideal I wished I had experienced, then I experience that in my imagination as though I had experienced it in the flesh. I do it over and over until it takes on the tone of reality, and experience convinces me that that moment that I have revised and relived will not recede into my past. It will advance into my future to confront me as I have revised it. If I do not revise it, these moments, because they never recede and they always advance, will advance to confront me perpetuating that strange, unlovely incident. But if I refuse to allow the sun to descend upon my wrath so that at the end of a day I never accept as final the facts of the day, no matter how factual they are, I never accept them, and revising it I repeal the day and bring about corresponding changes in my outer world.”

Another aspect that Neville teaches, is to engage imaginative events playing out right before you fall asleep.  I think the reasoning behind that is because you plant seed in a fertile, non-resistant ground while you slumber.  I like the art of revision but instead of using it to revise an entire day, that just seems like too much effort and I like easy, so instead I will pick one significant experience I had during the day and revise it in my imagination, in my mind’s eye, right before I go to sleep.  As I understand it, the idea is not to necessarily change events themselves but instead revise my direct of experience of them, though you could probably play around with revising whatever you wanted to.  I love how he says in revising it: I repeal the day.  In essence, I nullify whatever day’s event was displeasing to me and I start anew.

As we are about to inaugurate our next President, it feels like the dawning
of a new era in America.  This is a time so full of hope and promise and
optimism.  So as we step into the dawning of this new era, it seems fitting
what Quado/Carrrie Hart, has written below.

“The time for isolation is past. The time to stand together and create
new ways of being and responding is here. And these new times require
that you stand with others, that you listen to each other, that you
support each other, that you join hands and step out into the unknown.

And this, of course, requires faith. You will need faith in your own
truth, in the inner voice that urges you to walk into uncharted
territory. And then you will need courage to do what you are urged to do.

And so, do not complain about the state of the economy or what you
believe are closing doors. The opposite is true. The doors and
windows are blowing open all around you. You have never lived in such
a state of open opportunity. But these are not the old opportunities
and you do not meet them in the old ways.

Instead, when you walk through the new doors that are opening, you
will find yourself standing out in the middle of an open field of
possibility, your eyes blinking from the dazzling light. And
gradually, as your eyes adjust, you will see others standing in the
field with you, also blinking in the light. And then, you will
gradually make your way to each other, reach out your hands and join
your energies together, sharing your dreams and your talents, the
wonder and glory that you are. And gradually, a new dream will form,
a new pool of talent will emerge and you will begin to see what can be
formed of the raw stuff of possibility.

You are the creator and this is your world, your canvas, your clay.
Reach up into the air and grab the atoms and begin to shape them,
begin to shape the matter into new forms.

Have courage. Have faith. Do not ask why and do not ask to see the
future. Ask only for a deep clarity in this moment. Then do as your
heart bids.

Be brave, dear heart, be brave and clear. The world is yours to form.”

I watched the Oprah show “Spirituality 101” today and took down some highlights:

crisis means crossroads

in every crisis there is the end of the world as we’ve known it

it is a threshold for something much bigger in your life than you’ve ever imagined

let the old die because the new is going to be even better than you can imagine

if this situation were to last for a long time what quality would you have to birth to have peace of mind

That last one is my favorite: if this situation were to last for a long time what quality would you have to *birth* to have peace of mind?  It shifts the focus from what is to what can be, from pain to possibilities.  And if it’s a given, as Abraham says, that contrast propels expansion – then who must I now become?  Who will I be – who will now emerge out of this contrast?  It’s not something that can be answered at the level of the mind or figuring it out.  Somewhere in the spaces of stillness perhaps the answer lies.

This is what Seth said to Jane Roberts about a situation she found worrisome:

“adopt a position of divine nonchalance”

What a fabulous term!  It’s interesting that Seth didn’t say adopt a position of
nonchalance but divine nonchalance.  I started to entertain the notion of what
divine nonchalance would look like.  Here is some of what I came up with:

I don’t make assumptions about a thing because I don’t know what’s good,
what’s bad.  My uncertainty creates an opening for the Universe to work through.

I don’t have all the answers but I can be an empty vessel through which the
Universe can flow all kinds of answers to me.

Source always has my back so I can relax and know that All is Well.

Everything always works out in the end so I’ll just rest at that end point right now.

So that’s just some of what I’ve come up with.  I’m just in love with that term:
divine nonchalance.

This divine nonchalance comes out of The Nature of Personal Reality.  If you have
ever found Seth a bit dense to get through, as I have, pick this edition up – I think
you will find it an easy read and well worth it.  It really delves in nicely to how our
beliefs shape our experience and how that can be altered.

I got in the car with Kayla, my youngest daughter today.  Our cats were living the indignity of eating dog food, it was time for a trip to the store!  To our right was sun and to our left was rain.  I said to Kayla, today is a great day for rainbows and at that very moment I turned my head to the left and what did I see, not one but TWO rainbows and I could see one of them from end to end.  I’ve seen rainbows a couple of times out here max and to have it happen today just after I re-found my alignment on a subject so dear to me was very beautiful to witness.

Anything is possible.  It’s always been that way.  I had a brief time where I had forgotten that I live in a Universe that provides completely and totally.  Now I remember.

The nature of *all* things is continually unfolding.

Remember that, Bethie?

Ah, I had a moment where I forgot, but now I am getting into the flow of
remembering that.  I tried to sneak in a period at the end of that experience.
Ha! but I know too much now. And as I recall the eternally unfolding nature
of all things, I also am reminded that Absolute Grace threads both visibly
and invisibly throughout all of my days.  Oh yes, now I remember there is
*no* time off from Grace at work in my life.  And there is *nothing* I need
to do to orchestrate that.  How cool is that?  These are the gifts this
benevolent Universe offers up to me each day.  Grace is breathing me right
now, right this moment.  Grace is ceaselessly at work on my behalf and the
entire Universe’s.

Always.  All-ways.

I don’t have anything else to do today except to acknowledge all my gifts.
So many gifts!

Wow, when I look at it that way, I don’t even remember what
the heck that panty wad twisting was all about! :)

Love, Bethie
