Some mornings, I look up at the sky & my view of possibilities & dreams is obstructed by these little cages I've created or 'inherited'.
I know that letting those damn cages go is the greatest gift we can all give the world. And yet, so far all I've managed is to identify a few key cage-dwellers and keep track of them as they float around. What I need is a good old Cheticamp suete!!
Imagine 2011 as a world where everyone let go of their old baggage, the limiting beliefs, childhood conditioning, judgments & resentments. Imagine the connections & synergies between people & communities.
Letting go involves starting fresh in the present moment. Innocent little line!! That sentence could scare the pants off anyone. I'll be the first to admit that I've held onto problems, unhealthy situations, and outworn roles and relationships because I felt safe in their familiarity.
Here's what I'm thinking. I'm gonna start this thing bit by bit.
So it's not the most ORIGINAL resolution conjured, so what? It's mine!
I'm gonna start paying more attention to where I resist & where I struggle, and then I'm gonna try to nudge those cages away...I'll start with three particularly pesky cages:
♦ The cage of habits that interfere with writing.
♦ The cage of obsessive thinking & analysing. [Now this should be a good one for me!!]
♦ The cage of old stories & roles & beliefs. [Everyone knows how much I love stories, but...] What I'm referring to here are the stories that limit the depth and expansiveness of who we are past roles and stories. I read somewhere that you could imagine taking the old stories and roles off like pieces of clothing & then stepping away from them & leaving the room.
My wish to each of you - May you tune into who you are without your stories. Dig deep to find those core limiting beliefs that are not your highest truth and release them.
May 2011 be the year you share your true self with the world!!
