Awareness

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


THIS POST IS NOT MINE ... HOWEVER, SHE DID ASK PERMISSION PLACE IT HERE.
SHE THINKS THOSE OF YOU THAT DO COME HERE WILL FIND IT VERY INSPIRATIONAL.

By Isaiah knows nothing

Things I don’t have, don’t possess, who I am not- I can choose to focus on these things and create a myriad of imaginable, minute dramas each portraying why I don’t have these things, how I can get them, how I would feel owning them- and still, I’m no where closer to what I desire. Sometimes I fall in love with the drama, the play of consciousness most rewarding; that which I choose to feed.

Things I do have, tangible or intangible, and who I truly am- I tend to overlook, and here is where I am becoming more aware- I am in possession of all that I need, as I am. Desiring more, results in resistance and that guarantees more of what I don’t have. But even desiring to not desire brings about a resistance, which offers its own paradoxical guarantee. Becoming aware of where my head is at and seeing desire for what it is: a thought process composed of lower energy seeking attunement with highest energy, is enough (what is highest energy but a realization that all is perfectly fine, here & now- even thoughts that things are not.)It involves a most peculiar navigation into something profoundly mysterious where I must, must lose my way- even my very self, to arrive at the end, which is where I began. My “wayward” expedition into the mystery is a journey shared by every living soul. I know I am never alone. We are collectively on this journey, each of us trading turns showing the way.

Sitting around the fire last week, Trev Diesel played an original song called “Sharptooth” which is “a retelling of an ancient Indian tale about a tiger being raised by goats (thereby believing he himself is a goat)” in which he sang the following lines,“Lift your voice and let out a shout, you’ll see the limits you’ve lived with, you’ll know the power you’ve lived without.

”We are destined to own the paradox of being both tiger and goat, which is the same as the journey into the mystic. Each of us while on the same path feels like we are alone, that there is something we are missing, something we are or we are not holding us back, but this is a falsehood which is in place so that at our weakest, we can call forth that which is always already in us- that will save us. Only when we’ve seen the limits we’ve lived with can we know the power we’ve lived without.

My favourite part of the above post is:

My “wayward” expedition into the mystery is a journey shared by every living soul. I know I am never alone. We are collectively on this journey, each of us trading turns showing the way.
Does anybody feel this ... the way we are all interacting?

I hope that you will be able to absorbe this post ... thank you Isaiah for allowing me to use it.
hugs for you. :o)

quotes:
Anaïs Nin:
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Buddha:
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Henry David Thoreau:
Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.


Henry Miller:
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

I love purple. The animation and strong image are mesmerizing. The thoughts in your (borrowed) post are profound. Many of my friends have talked this past year of reducing their possessions and not accumulating more "things". This is on a different plain than the items we all give generously to charity.
The important parts/experiences of life are not material as exemplified by the quotes you chose to include.

Very inspirational!
Thanks for sharing it!
The quotes were wonderful too!
It is also a bitter cold day here!
Snow in the forecast!
Stay warm!
Hugs back to you!

Gel ... she thinks those who are travelling this path feel this way ... feel as though they need to rid of themselves of the clutter in their lives, realising the impermanence of the materialistic world. One thinks it is about where one places one's values. Have wonderful things but see them in a different light.
Thank you Gel for popping in ... she values your comment.
Have a wonderful day. :o)

trinitystar said...

Margie thanks for popping in ... hope that you are well and keeping warm.
Have a super warm day. :o)

Hi Trinitystar!
I see that I can't go out from your blog. There are always many interesting topics.
"Isaiah knows nothing" and "Trev Diesel" -
Trinity you know where are inspiring places.
I enjoyed my time here.
Have a great time!

FLOWER in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies;—
Hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower—but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.
-- Lord Alfred Tennyson

Matt said...

That was very inspirational, and a wonderful picture as well. Thank you! :)

Lorna said...

I was so inspired by this post. The words have just affirmed another conversation I recently had. You are never too old to look inside yourself and take inventory. Thank you for reminding me of that important life lesson.

trinitystar said...

Lorna, looking in at eternal youth.
It is really pleasing for all of us we get something out of a post.
I thank Isiah knows nothing for permitting me to use it.
Have a wonderful day.
:o)

trinitystar said...

trinitystar said...

Krystyna, Welcome and hugs for you.
two of my good friends in work are Polish ... Angelika i Marta. Good hard working girls. Very warm. so methinks that you too are like this.

trinitystar said...

Ann ... materialistic forms are all temporal ... but that is not to say that one should not have them ... it is where one places ones values. :o)
Hugs for you.

trinitystar said...

Polona, Exactly and what makes those limits ... our fear ... it is our own fear that holds us back.
Thank you for bringing this point out.
Dzravo! :o)
