Pilgrim… on a tight-rope walk!

For the week 13th-19th August, 2012…

Every time we need to feel safe and protected, every time we think of nurturing, we tend to view it as ‘mothering’. And we want it done unto us! However, now is an opportunity to understand that we are the ones responsible for the germination and growth of whatever we want in our lives. Now is the time to ‘mother’ our selves, if we will. For every idea, feeling, desire that has sprouted in you… validate it. Find a vision to make it manifest. It would be your baby…
Of course, there is a struggle between two poles observed to be opposites… whether one should be instinctual in living, or creative. Loving yourself will show you how to balance the two. One need not be devoid of the inspiration of the other. Also, there is a lot to be said for changing perspectives. Opposition occurs on the same measuring index and disappears if you jump to another index! Try that…. You might yet be pleasantly surprised that your best buddy could be your fears. It is a human being that has the potential to make sense of his feelings and ideas and turn them into resources for creating anew. There is nothing strange or unnatural in this.

Always, always balance is key. Whether you walk a tight-rope or lie down at the edge of a cliff… your stability is a function of the balance you have achieved within yourself. Situations may cause you to think on your feet, be quick, inventive and witty… and that, too, can eventually prove to be another resource. In dealing with the world we make real for us, we have to be careful of not hurting feelings, others’ or ours. We have to be alert that we do not encroach into others’ territories, nor allow ours to be violated. All of this calls for respect in your heart for all, diplomacy in your behaviour to overcome limitations of perception… and the understanding that discipline in our own practices and habits is what eventually leads us to autonomy.

We rule our world because we become capable of doing so. Let us not leave any part of that inheritance to accident!

An awesome week to walk the talk, ye pilgrims!
