Beware the woodchips in your life!

The path was sterile and easily walked.  No seeds had sprouted on the path, nothing was growing where the daily footsteps fell repeatedly.

pathFor any seeds to grow, they had to fall on fertile, UN-trampled soil. Soil NOT walked upon every day.  Yes, my Subconscious, my Habits, and my contentment with status quo- were nothing more than mental herbicides.

But venture off of any path and see where all kinds of seeds and ideas have sprouted, and grown and produced a totally different landscape to enjoy. Fuller, thicker vegetation, flowers, moss, lichen, plants and trees which invited even more wildlife in.    Imagine-  Rich new, and even crazy ideas, that may even  be TRUE!   Stay Curious! Stay Alive!

The path may be comfortable –  but is a boat built to stay in the harbor?

Do something different today.   Maybe listen to a new Youtube video from a different speaker, read a random page from a favorite book,  take a walk in a different area, or just respond differently to an expected remark.

Let a forest of vegetation,  a rainforest of ideas – thrive in your life.  A path is easy and habitual, but you’ll also get the same results and scenery in your life as everyone else.      Does it really sound like its working for those around you?

Wander a little,  you’ll be okay.   TODAY –  Its an opportunity to be YOU!

Happy Valentine’s, dearest larvae

Valentine’s Day –  a day to think about LOVE.      So why the “larvae”?  Allow me to backtrack for a second….

Love is seen and felt when we connect, when we are reminded of the Greatness in us.

I don’t believe it is Given, as much as it is Reflected, Shown, or Focused upon.

soon to be a Swallowtail butterfly…

 

When someone does something loving, they are not giving Love – they are only doing something that Allows someone else to Focus on the “Love” that is already inside us.

 

 

Those feelings of Greatness, of Love, of being True to who you are-  THOSE are the feelings that are continually attracting us, are beckoning us to become MORE of that.  It just feels “right”.   It pulls you to advance into something more.   Now- here comes the larvae!

When we do what comes naturally, we feel great. We feel Love, Ease and Creative.  We feel Growth. We feel the expansion of becoming more.  We want to be a better husband, or wife, or friend.  We find a way to do it.  We want to continue growing. The larvae wants to become the incredible swallowtail butterfly,  the sick cell wants to become a healthier cell, the divided want to become one, and Evolution continues to expand….

Even when the Physical cells stop working,  LOVE becomes more. It becomes More Energy.    As The Beatles sang –  “I don’t know why you say Good Bye, I say Hello, Hello, Hello”     A New energy form or connection, a new form of Love- wants to say Hello.  “Good-bye” is just what the old larvae says, or physical body says. Good- bye is what the old relationship says, as it evolves into something better.

Open yourself to LOVE, it’s everywhere and has great Momentum. Continue to say “Hello” to the greatest energies that surround us. LOVE.

Look for it. Feel it. Radiate it. It’s there, just connect.  Become that magnificent butterfly you are intended to become.
