Thoughts from the SHOWER:
My hands are shampooing, but my mind is conditioning. I am still reflective after this summer of 2019 and its historical astrological retrogrades. The season of turning and twisting planets, of shadows and light, is still creasing my brain and stirring my heart. The energy is eclipsing my thoughts as though I am a partner in the dance of the moon and sun. I think it will always be that way no matter what the time of year. I know each season of my life has its own curriculum and since I am graded on growth, I best pay attention.
But, this paying attention thing can get tricky. Like shaving your legs over mosquito bites, you must look ahead. We often don’t see very far, we worry too much about the obstacle in the way.
I’m reminded of the time I was 9. It was a hot August day and my Dad was driving back from Montauk. I was squeezed in the back seat of the Buick between my 2 sisters. Dad suddenly pulled over at a scenic spot and my sisters and I bolted spontaneously for the ocean. They were 10 and 12 years older than me and so brave! They played with the waves and weaved and dodged. I was scared, the waves were so big! I focused on the huge white tops and the motion of them as I followed my sisters across the sand. I could not look away or be left out! I stared at the big wall of water in front of me and knew it would swallow me up – and of course as soon as my little feet hit the water that was exactly what happened. Pulled under and drenched but saved by my older sissies! Whew!!
Sometimes we pay attention to the wrong thing! We get carried out on a wave, tossed around a bit and aren’t sure where else we should look. We are focused on the churning, the helpless feeling and all we can think about is the panic creeping in. Without direction, the wave can possess us then and take all our focus. Soon we are struggling against it not seeing anything else in our line of vision. We tell ourselves this is where we need to focus, or we will drown. But the thought we are obsessed with steals all our power. And we fixate on the wave and not letting it get the best of us. But whether we are 9 or much older it will get the best of us, if we focus on nothing else! The best thing we can do is pay attention to what is past the wave, focus on the other side of it, and how we can get there.
Sometimes we pay more attention to the obstruction,instead of looking past it.
Standing in the shower, washing my face I open my eyes. I wonder if my dog has joined me in the bathroom or is elsewhere making mischief. I look out the shower doors. One side of the door is foggy and spotted with rain. The other crystal clear so I can see past it.
Wow! I look through the clear side to see if Sparky is there. And my brain clicks like watch gears in place. I've just had a synchronization....an aha moment...
We Choose which side we want to see! Clear or foggy, real or unreal. How different the scene is when we Look past the obstruction, to see there is more! Clarity!
As I dry off I am in gratitude. Thanks Spirit! I get it! We can’t get to the life we dream of, if we focus on the things in our way. We must see past the obstacles and things that obstruct our view. Be far sighted! Everything has 2 sides. One is distorted and confusing and foggy and obstructed. The other one is clear and open and easy. We choose what we look at. We choose our focus. The wave or the other side.
This paying attention is tricky. I must pay attention to what I am paying attention too. Wow, great shower! Peace and love Georgia Rose
