Tales of a Double Virgo
step IN to it
‘The Universe is my palette. I paint a glorious picture and step into it.’ Alan Cohen.
this is how i started my day.
i love that word.
i’ve been thinking a LOT about this quote.
i know it
but to be reminded of it…..
my world has been adjusted.
some call it a cosmic re-alignment
we really CAN do that!
we already do
after we paint it
we slap our hands on it
smoosh it all around
making it all brown
why the hell do we do that?
why the hell do we do lots of things?
I paint a glorious picture and step IN to it.
what a glorious thing to ponder as we begin to explore
a new year
a new number.
we did a year review.
perhaps a PREview.
what glorious picture will YOU paint?
i’ve been ‘dealing’ with a conundrum.
a confusing and difficult problem or question.
tomorrow is Epiphany
my Epiphany within the conundrum
let me give you some back story first.
choosing between engaging with lower vibrations & asleep-ness
looking the other way.
it’s really easy for us humans
to want to defend ourselves
to engage in the conflict of defense.
what if we chose defenselessness?
i’ve done it before.
not really intentionally
it just happened
it was beautiful.
someone attacks you
over the top
you can either respond with:
- WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT????!!!!! or
- keep redirecting to the positive. never needing to defend.
it’s hard to NOT defend. it’s in our freaking DNA.
are you willing?
to choose peace?
choose the higher road?
what does the higher road look like?
i’ve been pondering this muchly.
what is my best decision?
what will benefit all that is?
sometimes you just fucking walk away.
not all battles can be ‘won’.
but can you let go and truly move on?
can I let go and move on?
i sincerely fucking hope so.
i want to.
i don’t want to be hanging on
to shitty-feeling things.
did i learn?
will i pull that shit again?
i fucking learned.
thank goodness for you
for the myriad of asses
who teach us our hardest lessons.
i love you and hate you at the same time.
blessed are WE
to be HERE
what will you paint
step IN to?
will you paint conflict?
will you paint peace?
will you paint the things that nourish you?
do you know what those things are?
horses. music. hot springs. time with family. writing. creating. fun clothes. soup on a cold day.
walkin’ with my doggy. eating chokecherries and service berries. swimming in a cold mountain lake.
drumming with the ladies. a long walk alone. choosing the high road AND a visit to Colorado. ha!
the list goes on.
my painting has an ocean. a herd of unicorns & belly aching laughter.
paint YOUR glorious picture
fill it with things that nourish you
step IN to it.
2017 is your palette.
