I dedicate today's post to my journey through my writing muck. As I have been writing my book I have known exactly what I wanted to communicate but it was interesting how much I began to second guess myself at every pass. I am so happy to say that I am my own student as well as a teacher and I took today's blog to heart and went through my fears, my blocks and made it out the other side excited for all that lays ahead...enjoy :-)
There is a classic book turned into a song that my son loves called, “Were Going on a Bear Hunt.” The story sets out to find a bear but the friends that travel must travel through many of life’s challenging terrains. The group climbs over mountains, walks through the tall grass and when they think they have lost their way, they climb up a tree to see what they can see. They move through the mud squish, squish and swim through the river filled with fish. The come to the place and find the cave, they have made it this far because they are not afraid!
What great truths lie in this tale. When ever we are confronted with something we don’t like and wishing it were another way, how do we create change? How do we find the answers that we seek?
We want what we want and we want it without the process, just the answers please- now. To truly get to where we desire to go, we must be willing to move through the space that we are in to get to the other side. The process provides the learning, the insight, the awakening of who we are not and who we choose to be in the knowing, in the discovering, in the awakening now. When life gets too thick, like the tall grass, what a great time to remember to climb to the highest tree and see with great perspective all that there is to see. From this space high above it all we can gain clarity and room to breathe. As we come back down with awareness in hand we have the strength we need to continue on our journey moving through and into be-ing.
Each moment is an opportunity to move on, in and through our personal journey's into BE-ing all that we are each here to BE. What will you do when a challenge arises? Will you cheer, "We can't go over it, we can't go under it, we have to go THROUGH IT, YEHHH! and move through the challenge with curiosity, excitement and playful ease? What will your day bring, what will your answer BE?
With Love & Gratitude,
