The Nature of Cycles: Day 61, Imix 9

THE NATURE OF CYCLES  “Take time now to think of something you have recently completed. It can be as grand as ending a huge project or saying good-bye to a loved one, or it can be as simple as having finished washing the supper dishes. Choose one event that you have completed to focus on today. What doors have opened as a consequence of finishing this activity? How do you feel as you end this task or event? Is there a feeling of accomplishment, joy or desperation? Are you ready to release any ties to the event in order to keep moving forward? Many times, there is a sense of guilt associated with endings. You are trained from youth to keep seeking new goals. Often the goal becomes the reason for doing the deed while much is lost during the journey.

It is important to pay attention to endings of cycles, no matter how trivial they seem. Paying attention to what is happening in the moment will allow you to find satisfaction and joy in all things. Many of you start tasks with the goal of completing them, yet no joy is found along the way. When you come to the end of the journey, there is just a hurried sense of getting on with the next project.

Those of you who have distanced yourself from Nature are having the most difficult times, for Nature is healing and restorative. There you will find peace and balance. Nature has no deadlines, yet all is done on time. The seeds know when to sprout. The leaves know when to fall. The birds know when to migrate. The bears know when to hibernate. You can learn much from Nature through observation.

Take time to quiet your outer world and go within. Think of ways you can become more balanced. Find ways to become more in tune with the natural cycles of the world.

How important is the job you invest so much of your time in? Is that job beneficial to you or simply a means to an end, an end that never comes? What percentage of time that you engage in this job, including morning preparation and the drive to and from work, do you find joy and satisfaction? If the percentage is low, then we encourage you to find another way to support yourself.

Look around your environment. How much stuff do you have that you don’t enjoy? Perhaps you want to enjoy it, but are too busy making money either to make ends meet or to buy a new house, toy or car that is bigger and better? Step back; take time to re-discover who you are. Have the courage to step out of the box and reclaim the wishes of your childhood. Take time now to reflect back on dreams you set aside. Are they still valid? What is hindering you from fulfilling those dreams?

We encourage you to look closely at your dreams and find ways to make them reality. Seek out those who have stepped out of the box and moved forward with their lives. These are the people who will support you the most, for they have already pressed through their inner fears and the ridicule from others around them.

You may need to make great changes such as leaving a church, ending a relationship, changing jobs or moving to a new location. Each one of these takes great courage, but the rewards are well worth the effort. If you are not ready to make great changes, start by allowing yourself to dream.

Many of you have lost the art of imagination, yet this is the keystone to any great change. If you can visualize it, if you can feel it, if you can taste it, then you can create it! Have the courage to move forward. Have the wisdom to live in the moment, paying attention to what is happening around you. Everything is literally an attitude away. If you are not happy, do not blame others. The belief codes you have chosen are steering the boat to whatever course you are currently on.

Have you ever wondered why some people can forgive others of great transgressions or why some people are always happy, no matter what circumstances they are in? It is because they have learned to hold themselves responsible for their own actions and allow others to be responsible for the choices they have made. Talk with these people and learn from them. They are your greatest teachers.”
