Day 180/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.
It's a popular thought that synchronicities are an aberration. The truth is that synchronicities are the consequence of living in the flow. Refer to my post for day 179.
When you are attuned with life itself, doing what comes next with absolute confidence that what comes next is the next best thing for you to be doing, you are in the flow of life.
When this is accomplished, everyday brings synchronicities. In fact, your whole life is synchronistic. It's the most natural way of being in the world.
There is absolutely no time that the next best thing is not the next right thing.
It's a leap of faith to turn your life around so that you are in the flow. I think I wrote about faith a few of days ago.
It's not going to happen without a commitment to learning more about yourself, knowing yourself deeply and shedding lots and lots of machio, aka acculturated conditioning.
When you do you'll wonder why there are so many distractions in life. You'll question the motives of those driving the economy and making the rules. Your life will be so simple and filled with magic that you'll wonder why everyone doesn't live this way.
You'll have everything you want and everything you will ever need and you'll wallow in the bliss of every single moment of every single day.
Self-Mastery. Live it!
366 days Towards Self-Mastery
When I considered my New Year's intentions for 2020 I had just one: To allow my heart to love what it loved...and let it lead me. (If not now, then when?)
I've spent months working on integrating my life. To live life more fully with my home life, my interests, my work, my responsibilities, all coming together, all connected. I want to give each the attention that they desire and need, and still have time and energy for the others. That means living and working from the heart.
As I was clearing out my bookshelf over the Christmas break I discovered Simple Abundance. I set it aside to explore it on New Year's Day as I lazed through another delicious day of nothingness. Sarah, the author, says this book is about living in grace. Living in grace I realised, is about Self-Mastery.
My thirst for understanding the human condition has driven me all my life, and hand-in-hand with self-mastery it has been a life-long goal. And seeing as I love to write, that living in grace is about self-mastery, and I love a bit of a challenge, then if I am truly going to let my heart lead, I really don't have any other choice. So scary as it feels, I'm starting out on a daily mission of leaning into the suggestions of this daybook and making a daily post to keep me accountable. If not now, then when?
I'm Josie. You can find out a little more about me here.
