As I look at the calendar I’m reminded of that time is marching relentlessly on. We are now looking at October and I remember very clearly preparing for New Year 2017. At this rate it’ll only be five minutes until we ring in the 2018…..
How have you done? What have you achieved? How important has it been to you? And did you have the BEST fun?
These are useful questions to ask yourself now rather than later in the year to give yourself time for reflection and alignment.
Perhaps, though, the most important question to ask yourself is whether you love yourself (yet or still). What have you done during this past year that has been different to previous in how you have expressed and nurtured yourself?
Have you stopped being so hard on yourself? Given yourself a bit more time and space? Worked a little less and smelled a few more roses; perhaps allowed a little more love into your life? Thought about where you stand in other people’s dramas, stopped taking care of them (so much) and considered your own needs and desires in the light of all your relationships – and where you’re headed?
And so on (great fun).
By answering these questions, you observe at the same time whether you feel guilty or defiant, which in themselves tell you the truth about your love of Self and its relative boundaries. Because if you were really ok with it all, you would be pretty neutral. It just is what it is (they are just who they are) and you are not still ‘trying’, ‘hurt’ nor frustrated.
This then becomes your freedom, which is what ‘free will’ and its best friend ‘choice’ are about.
Lots there to consider and observe.
If you can answer honestly yes to most of the above questions, then bravo! You’ve moved on from the old cycle, which was trapped in a code of conduct that subliminally pleased others, mostly to keep the, ermmm, peace.
If you answer mostly no, then this is your chance to sit down and have a quiet conversation with yourself. Your best tool is of course your intuition. This connects you with your own space where lies your Guidance, that individuated aspect of universal source wisdom and potential that lives within us all.
Either way, you use this level of awareness to create a new cycle of karma for yourself, rather than continuing to live out different plays of the old cycle, whether positive or negative doesn’t much matter as it’s all been the same, albeit with different faces and situations.
And with this comes the beginning of another amazing new adventure of Life, this time more uplifted.
Until next time.
