Each day I am reminded of the closely guarded rules and conditions that we have established in our lives. We are on guard watching for any thought or idea that may come along and possibly alter that paradigm. Most often we go running to the safety of our own mental prison.
The degree to which we dismiss or ignore the evidence of our efforts is quite staggering. Often we limit ourselves to specific outcomes or evidence. Because of this, the treasures reflected by the evidence cannot be seen as it does not resemble our narrow expectations of the path forward.

Our lives are run by ideas that we hold allegiance to, ideas that institute restrictions in the human experience. We are run by dos, don’ts and suggestions of impossibilities. What is seldom realized is that we live a life of suggestions.
Life as a human being is an insatiable experience despite it being an emotional wild ride. To say the least, it is profound, mysterious, exhilarating and maddening all at once! Being alive is addicting, we want more despite the ups and downs.
Your expansive self took on the project of experiencing human life. Nobody really thinks of it this way, because we are conditioned to have very narrow interpretations about a great many things in our life.
This is the time of year that prompts a wide range of emotions. Although this is expected to be the season of joy not everyone might be experiencing such joy. Why are we so triggered by Christmas and the overall season leading into a new year?
Quite often we face incredible complexity and frustration as we aim to configure the direction of our lives. We ultimately crave personal and spiritual expansion; deep discovery and a sense of freedom. At times we experience hints of greatness, magic and a life without limits!
Everything we own is technically rented, leased or borrowed. When people exit the planet, all of their possessions are given to someone else or destroyed. Those items suddenly matter to someone else, and can quite often lead to squabbles over ownership of “stuff” that previously belonged to the now deceased.
To be alive in this moment, in this time, is to be on the cusp of this upgrade in the human experience. Perhaps the appearance of the world around us may seem to reflect something other than an upgrade.
