Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Movement or Design of Choreography

surfer_1280

We are playing and dancing almost in perfect harmony, but we are a bit off in our rhythm. We know this because we hear the Sound and feel the Percussion. We turn to look at this great Power. We see that it is Pure Energy that is bringing this Song. It is Movement itself. It is the ninth Power that is dancing and flowing with the rhythm of all the other sounds. Catching it, tuning to it, is aligning to the Great Choreography. We see and know that this is Movement.  Change happens here. We begin to perceive that maybe the Song is written here, designed from this place. This Song sings to us from the Northeast section of the Great Orchestra.

Warrior Wednesday – Space and Distance

boxers_1280

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

The Warrior’s Attributes in the Southwest are space and distance. This refers to the gap between yourself and life’s experiences. When the action is happening and the cameras are rolling, space refers to how well you can stay open to the action and remain centered within yourself.

Distance refers to how close you will allow others (and life’s experience) inside your energy field. You will notice that a boxer constantly leads with short jabs, trying to gauge the space between himself and his opponent. When he determines the amount of space, he will know the distance he needs to cover in order to deliver his knock-down punch. When confronted with a closed symbol, do you need to create more space or close the gap in order to deal with it?

Battling the Enemy Within

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”  ~ Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Do you know yourself and the enemies within that create your “hundred battles”?

Arizona Red Lodge Open House Jan. 5, 2011

Do you experience life as speeding up?  Does that create stress in your life?  Interested in finding ways to create more balance and ease in your life?

Or, perhaps, in ways to break out of old habits which are starting to irritate you, or even to cause problems in your life?  (Maybe you have a hard time saying no even when you want to; maybe you find yourself over-indulging in food or other substances; maybe you have trouble with credit card balances;…)

Or, you might be curious about different perspectives on human-ness, on spirituality, on the nature of the universe and how we fit into it.
