Day 199/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.
The question of abundance has finally surfaced. There have been days of procrastination as I synthesise my thoughts and feelings and explore this question.
It's fair to say that I am yet to master this idea of abundance, AND I'm as close it as I've ever been.
Here's what I know.
Everything is essentially energy. Energy carries information.
The space we call air, is teeming with energy and information. We can't always see it. Yet we know it's there. A proven fact. Planck energy, the frequency of which determines the information.
There is no shortage of this energy, source energy from which we are all created. There is abundance of source energy.
So logically, there is abundance of everything.
There is an abundance of misery if you focus your attention to experience that. This was my trajectory for a very long time. Trying to figure out what was wrong with me and with life was my focus and I received an abundance of misery.
So is it true that focussing on the gifts I see around me, the world that supports me and nourishes me, that I will receive more of that? Work in progress!
Here's the thing. It's ALL a gift. Even the stuff that feels like misery is a gift showing me that my trajectory is not supportive, and I can adjust.
So right now I have come to understand and appreciate the gifts that surround me. "Thank you, I love you."
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.
