grading the retro mercury
okay, so in terms of chaos, i’d say last week ranks up there with the best of them, and in terms of the value of that chaos, i’m surprisingly delighted. you gotta boil the soup to make the dinner, i guess. and i’m just figuring that this week will hold more of the same.
so even as i am still intent on working with the healing agent of settle old accounts; i’ve got traffic tickets, life and health insurance applications, an auto registration, and a professional liability insurance application that are at, near, or past due; i am also intent on working with a powerful universal principle of alignment during the coming week, as i expect that the chaotic energies of last week will not only carry on, they will deepen and grow more powerful, like a tide reaching fullness. purna so-called.
so just like last week, i will be casting my glance backward, at unfinished business, in particular old accounts, transaction left in play, both financial and relational. digging through the bags of unfinished business and maybe even venturing down to the basement to paw and root, singing my little pooh-like ditty:
sort i must and sort i will
looking for treasure, keepsake or thrill
what doesn’t get recycled or thrown away
remains to be dealt with another day
and at the same time that i focus on this healing theme of looking backward with thought and awareness, i will be instituting another practice that should smooth out the ripples of chaos that threatened to capsize my little ship during the last half of last week.
opening to grace
back in october i attended a yoga teacher training with john friend, and got into the power of grace as space a bit when blogging about that event. i used the image of a planet floating in space to show the power of grace, the holding power of space.
and as the snow fell and fell and fell on boston yesterday, the power and strength of quiet softness really sank in for me, and i realized that the only way i am going to get through this next two weeks, intent as i seem to be on opening some major floodgates of stored and repressed energies from my past, is if i really get with the natural flow of universe, and allow myself to be held safely and securely in the arms of grace.
let go of control. release the desire for achieving any particular results. just grin (or maybe not…that seems to get me in trouble!) and bear it.
or as my buddy mike dooley might say:
next time you make a wish, wish for what it, because really and truly, things don’t get much better than this.
there is a purpose, a plan, and a reason for all things. what doesn’t make sense, will make sense. you are exactly where you should be; your challenges are what they should be; your rewards are what they should be; and the best is yet to come. time has served you well. love is in the air. and you’re looking mighty good in the light that now surrounds you.
off line and off the hook (or not…)
i’ll be aided in this adventure by being relatively offline for the next 4 days…nothing but me and my stuff, me and the windows begging for plastic, me and the woods whispering of snowy walks…
and of course i’ll be back by friday to fill you in on my amazing adventures as a time traveller and space adventurer.
and how about you? what’s your theme or plan for this highly auspicious week?
