It’s been a rather long while since I wrote some properly constructed sentences here. I could say I’ve been busy, and you may understand, but that word to me has come to encompass more the buzzing noise of a bustling bee than the awesomeness of purposeful honey-making activity. And I’ve been making precious little noise at all.
I’ve engaged a mellowed-semi-online-hibernation-type-thing. Instead of writing love notes here on the regs, I have been writing other things, reading other people’s creations, engaging face to face contact (not like that…), pondering/meditating more often and sleeping. I feel into a tranquil state of curiosity, of possibility, and of intention, I’ve not quite yet emerged from that pool.
Of late I’ve begun to embrace a sense of timelessness, future, past and present are kinda mushing in together. As such we need not wait for January 1st to set new focus, but love the fact a 365 day cycle may very well begin on any given day. Now is a good time to start, simply because it’s the only time to start.
In saying that, this year for me began this year an intention of enrichment, which has brought more sweet epiphany to me than I could have expected it to. I found the delight of surrendering your intention to a greater force and accepting that your idea of of what it might look like is probably too limited for where you’re headed (whether you realise where you’re headed or not). Before that was an appreciation of being fearless, or rather, being mindful that fear need not be eradicated – just less than the big sexy dreams. Looking forward, there’s not a straight forward explanation yet that embraces all the things I’m deciding I want.
Though my intention for this space remains in essence. I want to encourage you guys to be cool with wanting more, pimping your standards and then purposefully, enthusiastically wrapping yourself around the whole shebang regardless of what might be ‘sensible’. More love, more give, more delight, more fun, more colour – in even the stodgiest of circumstances. The little bit of fire you can ignite in your delicious minds can be enough to grow a new direction rather swiftly, if that’s what you want.
Take some time out to feel out what might be impossible, break it down until you find the bits that you can do, and then have a crack at the ones just above those. I’m fairly certain that doing the bits we can do is what we all do all the time, and it gets to be uber boring.
You’re allowed to want impossible things, but you’ve got a kind of cosmic duty to create them. Grow in awareness of what you want, really really want, irrespective of what the others are perhaps doing. Remember lovers, there are 7 billion or so humans rocking this planet with us… if the bundle you’ve been graced with aren’t entirely supporting, and thus blocking your light, I can promise there are those who will do precisely that, when you start asking around. For serious. Teeter out there and make new connections.
As the world wraps up 2012, maybe decide to be not so busy. Celebrate the purposeful action you take to create your kind of awesome, and not the noise.
Yours in Love and Nonsense,
