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

I’m not going to talk about commitment in quite the way you
are used to hearing about it.  This is about a different kind
of commitment, an unwitting or unconscious commitment.

I took a look at what I was committing to after being inspired
by an online friend.  She was inspired by reading “Realities”
which is an ebook available for $10.00 over at The Field Center.
I then added another piece to it that really cemented the wake
up call to the choices I make for myself.  And once we wake up
to what we are choosing, the possibilities to consciously alter
that are endless.

So I’ll explain:

One day I observed myself in self-talk.  I began to say:

“I am so weary of…”

I stopped myself and I changed the self-talk to:

“I am committed to feeling so weary of…”

Do you hear the difference?  The first example is me lost
in my own story, my own movie, reacting to conditions.  The
other example is me taking radical responsibility for the way
I was feeling.

I then took it up a notch.  The next morning I woke up and started
down the ‘asleep at the wheel of life’ and began to worry.  I heard
my inner worry talk and I stopped it, and said:

I am committed to worrying and I have been unwilling to give that up.

Wow, that really made me stop in my tracks!

Suddenly I began to see tons of self-talk and turn it around with just
this one sentence.

Now I’m like a kid in a candy shop…

This is what else I discovered today….I was watching this guy train
his pit bull puppy and I made an assumption that he was being mean
to him.  I was just about to do that thing where I get lost in my own
movie where Bethie takes the role of “I’m sensitive and it’s painful”
…when I just asked myself what is this really about and it HIT me:

I am committed to seeing others as victimizers, and I have been
unwilling to give that up.

Wait, it gets even better!!  Then the next obvious step hit me:

I am committed to seeing others as needing to be RESCUED,
and I have been unwilling to give that up.

This is beyond soothing, beyond reaching for the better feeling
thought.  If you are like me and come up against stuff over and over
again, it’s inviting you to really take a look at it, really get in there and
see what you are choosing for yourself.

Finally, here’s the other piece.  What I have struggled with the most
in the whole ‘you create your own reality’ new thought movement, is
self-blame.  Look what I’m creating and it sucks, bad creator me.
So I turned it around:

I am committed to blaming myself and I have been unwilling to give
that up.

And then I took the radical responsibility up another notch:

I am committed to victimizing myself and I have been unwilling to give
that up.

Wow.  This technique is opening doors to the patterns that have been
at work in my life.  Finally I realize the one tightening the noose around
my neck is me.  And realizing that and removing all self blame for it
by taking radical responsibility offers complete and utter freedom.  Now
truly there is no place I cannot go.

Well I went to sleep last night right after watching America’s Next Top Model.  I know you are chuckling out there but I do like reality shows :)  So Tyra ends the show with this little quoteable:
‘you have to use that natural talent that you have.  Take that and OWN THAT’

Good stuff, Tyra.  Off to dream I went and my dream had a message about talent.  In the dream, I read poetry that I found in a thrift store, I created that love poem written by some unknown-to-me man to his beloved, decades ago, about his visit to the white canyons.  I never even heard of white canyons and I don’t write poetry, at least I didn’t think I did.  Also, I created all that vintage inventory in the store.  I became both fashion designer, story teller and poet all in one dream.  So it brought up to me the nature of talent as something innate and the nature of talent as something I/all could choose to be anything we want, whenever we want.  Dreams will take you anywhere you want to go, they can show you how you are capable of anything, they can also show you lots of other things, too.  The possibilities truly are endless and I just love believing that everyone not only has a special gift/talent but that we all have access to infinite talent.  Wow, why that should be a biggie to me, I dunno, but it is…may you discover what talent you didn’t know you had and may you step into the joy of knowing you are infinite talent…Love and Light, Beth

That’s what it says on a pinback button I have hanging on my car visor, along with two others ‘Uniquely Me’ and ‘Zippety Do Dah’…I lost one of my favorites that said: ‘The ozone layer or cheese in a spray can? Don’t make me choose’…ever reminding me not to take life too seriously.  :)

Now back to peace has begun with me.  It’s an inside job as Abraham so often tells us, as illustrated in this quote from San Antonio, TX September 2006:

“When an entire society is going with the flow what a wonderful world it
will be.

When you are the only one in society going with the flow what a
wonderful world it will be for you.”

I cannot bring peace to a world where I do not experience it within myself and in fact, the more I experience it in myself the more it becomes evident in the world around me.

Inner peace can be a multi faceted journey.   Today I am focusing on the peace that comes with experiencing love where there is fear.  Abraham says you cannot worry and feel fear at the same time that you love.  A Course in Miracles says fear is the absence of love.  I also term Divine Love as Divine Acceptance.  I know that I will not be completely free of every fear I’ve ever felt.  And that’s not really the point, nor is it my work to be completely free of anything.  My work is to put one spiritual foot in front of the other and move forward in the best way I know how.  It’s never about how far I move forward (expand), just that I do.  That feels like self-love and acceptance, it feels like fertile ground to plant the seeds of personal peace.  And so it is.
