High above the maddening crowds of life, the tightrope walker gingerly walks, Delicately balancing his body, his mind, energy, thoughts, feelings and emotions, He has to maintain his balance or he will lean, tilt off balance and fall to his death, So he remains calm, focused, centred – paying full attention to his every action.
He balances his head and his heart, staying as close to centre as he can, He balances his intellect with his emotions, his thoughts and his feelings, He balances his left-brain and his right-brain, his logic and his intuition, He balances his mind, thoughts, logic with his feelings, emotions, heart, intuition.
He balances his will and his power with his love, tenderness and compassion, He balances his desires and needs, with the desires and needs of others, He balances his longing for control, with his need for independence and freedom, He balances all of his polarities, all of his extremes, all of his aspects, his parts.
Walking the tightrope, remaining in balance is not easy, however it is a challenge, A very noble worthy challenge few can do, and fewer still can do well, or master, Only a rare few dare to walk life in balance, peace, harmony, joy and happiness, Only a rare few dare to keep their mind and heart open, feeling, staying present.
So I take another deep breath, outstretch my arms even wider, feeling, sensing, Seeking to stay present in my body, alive, alert, awake, listening, feeling, sensing, And as I walk, I feel my own body, the rope, the pulse of life and of the Universe, I feel my heart and my soul calling to me, to live life fully – in love, in compassion.
Each day I walk this tightrope, dong my best to learn, change, grow and evolve, Each and everyday I risk a little more, learn a little more, balance a little better, As I risk and learn, I remain open, receptive, vulnerable, feeling, sensing, living, Sometimes I come close to losing my balance and falling, yet my soul saves me.
Thankfully I am paying attention, learning to be more open, aware, sensitive, I’m learning not to judge, beat myself up, condemn myself or seek perfection, Each day I do my best to maintain this delicate balance – to seek my centre, To seek the truth of who I am, to give my best to myself, and to this world!
Every time I lean too much to the right, or too much to the left, I catch myself, Returning as best I can to my centre, to balance, peace, love and harmony, This takes constant awareness, supreme commitment, sensitivity and more, Yet as each day passes, I can see, I can feel how much I am growing, evolving.
Yes, I can still laugh, and play, and create, and dance, and still live life fully, However there is an inner calling within me to be more, to become more, This inner calling is for peace, harmony, balance, sensitivity, awareness, To connect with myself, others, to maintain a balance, to walk the tightrope well!
Let me start off by reminding you that fear is an acronym for False Expectations Appearing Real.
Look around you. What is your current reality? Why do you allow this to be your current reality? We both know the answer: fear. Fear of the future – which doesn’t even exist yet, because we are here and now, and this is the only place where we can be. Fear of being arrested for living a normal life – and because so many people have this fear, everyone is convincing themselves and their neighbours that it is OK to have fear.
Judgment has gone out of the window. People are all too willing to believe that a mask – of any kind – can prevent a virus that is not even airborne from being spread. How can you spread a virus by breathing out what your body no longer needs? How can you breathe out a virus that can only spread by touch?
Or maybe you can spread this virus by breathing out what your body no longer needs. If that is the case, how far should you be from another person to prevent the spread? Is it 1.5 metres or 2 metres? Based on what research?
I can cite here so many examples of the most nonsensical behaviour that is accepted and practised based on fear.
What is behind all this? Nope – I will not write about politics and that unnamed threat and broken systems and what else.
Let me tell you about the immense power of what happens between your ears daily.
We are all energy, right? Of course. Energy is in the form of a wave until we add consciousness and then the energy becomes a particle – and many particles become a thing, and that thing materialises.
So what we have here is a few billion people who tuned into the same reality that is fear-based, because they don’t understand the power of their thoughts and how they are creators every day of their lives. And if you don’t create your future, there is always someone who is willing to do it on your behalf.
I see every day how people cross red robots or stop signs – because they are not afraid of the consequences. Show me one person that has never broken any law anywhere or at any time in their life, and I will show you a saint.
Show me one person who is not complaining about the laughable restrictions – not in one country, but across the world, and I will show you a person who understands the power of thought.
We are living with broken legal and governance systems. We complain about our broken world every day. We focus our thoughts on making things around us more broken.
What if we take those same thoughts and we allow ourselves to think about a future where we create what we need for the greater good, and we don’t spend any time, money or energy on fear?
Search on the internet for this book: The Science of Getting Rich.
It is over 100 years old, and it is easy to read. It will blow your mind, and it will help you understand that our future depends not on how many rules we follow, but on how we use our thoughts to create a future.
We live in times of change on a scale that few of us can imagine. We know where we come from, but in a very short time the world has changed, and it will never return to what it was.
Whose fault is it? Depends on which social media you allow into your consciousness. Did the virus originate from an animal in a dirty Chinese market? Or was it planted in the market – or even in a few places – by the US government? Does the virus follow the footprint of 5G? Is it in fact not a virus, but rather your body’s reaction to 5G radiation?
And I am sure you can add to the list.
My question is: What can you do about any of those possible causes?
And the answer is simple: Nothing.
Does that leave you powerless?
On the contrary. It leaves every single one of us in a position of power that is mind-blowing.
Have you noticed that? Or are you inadvertently adding to fearmongering by spreading anything that relates to the situation, whether it is true or relevant or appropriate or not? If you are too quick on the Send or Forward button, here is a suggestion. You could spend time on doing your research on the internet and getting facts. Or even better, get off the internet as far as you can, and claim your power.
What does that mean: claim your power?
Remember how the Law of Attraction became everyone’s bible a few years ago? Even today there are still prophets around who sell expensive courses so that you can get rich/find the perfect partner/find your soulmate/do anything your heart desires overnight by just following what the course tells you – once you have made the financial dreams of the course creator come true.
Here is a but of truth that I will give you for free: The Law of Attraction works – but only together with a lot of elbow grease and focus.
There is a simple mantra that encompasses the Law of Attraction: What you think about and thank about, you bring about. It is that simple.
Think about what you want – and do it in detail and with an action plan. Say thank you and feel the gratitude for what you are about to receive. Then see how it materialises based on your action. Try it – dream your dreams, and then do what is needed to make those dreams reality. The more you do that, the more the Universe adds to the scale of your dreams, and the more materialises for you.
What does that have to do with the pandemic?
What are you thinking about? What do you allow to fill your mind? What do you focus on? That is what you bring about.
And the only way to get the future we all want, is to focus on that future rather than on the myriad of distractions that the media feed us.
I run a WhatsApp group that is meant to focus on gratitude and give people hope. I want everyone to focus on the purpose of the group. You have no idea how I have my hands full sending fear and fearful posts and fearful attitudes away from the group – I spend a lot of time explaining what the group is about, and next another post jumps out (just like a virus) and I have to start again.
And no, I am not like an ostrich with my head in the sand. My view is that there are hundreds of groups and sites where there is a place for everything related to the pandemic, but my group is there to provide balance, by focusing on the amazing new world that is unfolding right under our noses.
What you think about and thank about, you bring about.
I choose to think about spiritual awakening, recognising the truth, and spreading Unconditional Love. That is the Law of Attraction in action.
What is your version of the Law of Attraction? What do you think about and thank about?
