21 Jan Rhythm & Flow
Getting out of Life’s ruts requires tapping into the Field of Stillness to activate, magnetize, and actualize your potential. The late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.”
When I reflect back on Life, all my successes were the result of taking that first Intentional step toward the G.O.G. – Goal of God (Call IT what you want, it really is ineffable). I had done all the manifestation techniques: vision board, visualization, wrote down and read my goals upon waking and before sleep, and etc. I even wrote a letter of goals to myself and posted it on the mirror with the envelope saying, “Do Not Open Until One Year From This Date.” Yes, these are wonderful tools for living the life of your dreams. However, whenever I accomplished or manifested any of the goals, the high of accomplishment was short-lived and fleeting. It never really brought permanent fulfillment, contentment, and happiness. There’s more to manifesting than just manifesting things!
I believed at that time I would have to climb the next highest mountain of achievement to find Shangri-La. I heard of millionaires never really being happy, even with all that money$$$. We all heard this…”If only I can make another $10,000,000, I’ll be happy.”
It wasn’t until I simplified my life and threw every belief out the window, including manifestation techniques, did Life provide me better than I could ask for. Nor was I ever disappointed for having a huge expectation and attachment for the result since. You see, the “ego” is where desires come from. It’s like writing a Christmas list to Santa Claus. You get all the toys you asked for and then a few days after Christmas, you’re already bored with all your gifts?!
What I did instead was Completely, Totally, and Absolutely surrender to the Goal of God figuring that Life would know a better life than I (my “ego”) could ask for. I would meditate twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. I would remain in that peaceful state as best I could throughout the day. Simply, I wouldn’t “do” my best, but I would BE – staying anchored in Awareness. Over “time”, I began to notice a Rhythm & Flow to Life. It was like running. You BE(gin) by taking “the first step in faith” and you never ever give up no matter the obstacle. You just keep the faith and keep putting one foot in front of the other. After awhile, you notice that your feet start running on their own, and you’re watching this in total awe almost like being out of the body, yet still grounded. The momentum of Spirit is running and dancing through you with Rhythm $ Flow. You become the Goal. The Runner’s High (the bliss rush of endorphins) and subtle energies cascade and flow through the body and mind.
The Snowball Effect of Success begins with a stagnant rock (you) with the right conditions moves you down a slippery slope (fear) and rolls you down building up speed and snow until you become the unstoppable Snowball of Contentment, Fulfillment, Happiness and Wholeness! The accomplished goals become the bonus cherries on top of the Sweet Success Sundae that You Already Are.
