wickenden runThis morning was a sweet october morn.  I got up early enough to fill my mind with empty space before even brewing the coffee & I was able to find the stillness that often hides behind the defense of the ego so throughly that I can not find the still spot.  But that was not the case this morning.  I awoke long before the alarm and I spent at least a half hour in my journal.  I tried to write on the computer in this blog but I encountered technical difficulties so i abandoned that idea quickly…I know how little frustration it takes to know me off my pins.  So I did not proceed with any idea that held any amount of frustration.  That was my morning gift to myself and it worked out very nicely.

When I am able to manage the continuous stream of consciousness-language that is the backdrop of my mind, I am able to feel like I can do anything.  I begin to experience myself as a part of a greater universe and my role is to function well.  I do not need to accomplish, I simply need to function.  The movement away from outcome brings me to an affinity with process that I have always been identified with.  Under the spell of interbeing, I am able to get on with my day without the fears brought about by my ego that can act hysterically like an abandoned child.

    Very handsome blog! Upon reading your last paragraph I was wishing I had an extra copy to send you of David Spangler’s re-issue and updating of his classic “The Laws of Manifestation” which clearly delineate how we “manifest” our best Selves…not Ego, but “Soul Presence” through knowing ourselves as a part of a flowing Universe. Our work in the world is to fully be who we are! There’s great peace in that! Keep posting! Christine
