Still totally inspired by my new modern time favorite artist Katherine Ace in this piece titled, Graces.
This week I have faced emotional challenges from old paradigms, in conjunction to this oncoming Full Moon. (Correction on my astrology by my friend Linda, who has seen my chart) For years I thought my moon was in Scorpio but it is not, it is in Aquarius, making me a double Aquarius, my Aquarius ascendant, my moon is on my ascendant, according to Linda, of Litebeing Chronicles, this makes me lunar or Cancerian. (I hope I got it right this time.) In this new Quantum Synchronicity that seems to happen more and more I read a great post by Monika at Symbolreader , titled, Where Do You Go After You’ve Been to the Moon. Great post!
Then too my good fortune another good friend blogger Shree, at The Heartsong Blog wrote two awesome post that reminded me to check my perceptions. One titled, Making Choices, and the other, Karma it seems disagrees with you.
Both of these post reminded me that I had been indulging in old paradigm thinking and ideas. Even after all that couple of weeks of hearing the great speakers on The Hay House World Summit, I had slipped right back into old thinking, allowing attachments to ideas and concepts, attachments to positive emotions, like a junky wanting my next fix. Yeah harsh but true. We are always chasing that emotional high. As I commented on Shree’s post, I recall something Baba Muktananda said, I paraphrased there and I will paraphrase here, “The pendulum swings both ways, happiness on one extreme and sadness on the other, but the goal is to stay neutral in the center, neither attached to happy or sad.” I recall when I heard this thinking, “But I want to be happy. What’s wrong with being happy?” When I heard it, I really stopped and thought about it, pinning it as a sticky note in my mind. I am glad I did because today I retrieve that sticky note and say, “Ah, I get it now,” all these years later. I have been so sad and stressed in fear of loosing this concept, this idea of happiness. How ludicrous a notion. I mean really it is so clear now. My attachment has caused suffering and certainly has not been being in the moment. “Be Here Now,” Ram Daas. I see exactly what Baba Muktananda meant.
So once again, I want to express my deepest gratitude and joy to my sister bloggers here at Word Press, who so often in a synchronization, express exactly what I need at the moment. I say sister because it has primarily been from my sisters, not excluding love of my Word Press brothers, I love yall too.
