Inside Outside Inside

There are some places you go, that you just connect in with.  You get lots of messages and you feel at home.  It is a place of awakening, learning and growing.

Each of us have a place like this.

Do you know how to recognise it?

Do you know where is it?

It is inside yourself, it is the quiet stillness that is within all of us.  It is where the quiet voice whispers wisdom into our ears.

Whisper-in-earIt is outside yourself.   It is in the places in nature that touch you emotionally, that move you and that you feel at home in.  It is where the outside touches the inside of you and there is a sense of peace that comes into us.  There can also be a rush of energy and connection to all things.  It is where the energy of outside whispers wisdom into our ears.

inside_outsideAfter the outside we move within to the inside again where a completeness is found.  It is where the two are combined and peace, harmony and balance are now found.  It is where the whispers of the inside and outside are one and the wisdom of all things.

Knowing whats inside, outside and inside.

Life is like a flower

Flower SeedsEverything in life comes from a seed.  Flowers are grown from seeds.  We are conceived from a human ova or seed. Our thoughts are the seed of ideas, perceptions, judgements and opinions.

planted seeds in the soilThe flower seed must sit in the soil.  It needs a dark place to germinate with the right amount of moisture. We are in the womb for 9 months to grow.  Thoughts sit with us before they are ready to come out.

Then the sun reaches deep within to encourage the flower seed to reach up and out towards it. We journey out the birth canal into the world. Our thoughts come out our mouths and then maybe even sit with us.

Dying flowerLastly the flower begins to fade and die, returning to the soil as nourishment for future seeds. We too begin to fade and die, returning to the source, to review our lives.  Our thoughts are now full of the wisdom of life, peace and understanding.

Enjoy your flowers of life.

Justify or just a fly

As we go through our lives we find that we can justify the situations we find ourselves in.  Explain away our behaviours and choices in a way that suits us.

We can justify why we did something.

We can justify why we made that choice.

We can justify how we are learning and growing.

We can justify how we take responsibility for things.

We can justify why we didn’t do something

Just a flyBut is it really just a fly?

Are we really seeing all perspectives of the situations and choices we make?

Yes, you can see what is going on from your perspective.

Yes, you see things from the other persons perspective.

And yes, you might even see it from an outsiders perspective.

Are they the only perspectives?

Alternate-PerspectivesHave you ever considered the perspective of you interacting with you?

man-looking-in-mirror-300x214Why is it we can say we are going to treat others well, whilst at the same time we treat ourselves poorly and we don’t even realise we are doing it.

We do this when we are in a state of incongurency.  What that means is, there are two of us, that are both trying to do the best for us.  We are in our own way, so we justify what we do. It can take a bit of digging to find both sides of your story.  Try it, its liberating and healing.

Listen, see and hear what is right for the whole of you the next time you hear yourself justifying a choice or behaviour and then think – just a fly – what is right for the whole of me.
