Occupy Blogosphere – Thursday, October 4, 2012

Attention to obstacles makes them scarier,

bigger,

more stubborn.

Focus on the feeling of being up there.

Go on.  Feel it.

The Universe is then free to conspire its reality.

Just for you.

  1. Crossing the line past fear can be paralyzing but doing it makes life so much easier.
    Feel the power within you to conquer it and recieve the positive energies in the world.

    BTW … I can’t seem to figure out the url for here. The image just enlarges when I post it on
    my posting. It doesn’t bringm e here. What should I do? Thanks

    • Awe-making! First the photo…then the video. Great post, Isadora, great encouragement. Messages wrapped in beauty…

      I believe the best way is to hot link text. For example, hot link your last sentence, “To find out more about joining in on supporting the positive energy at Soul Dipper, click here.” to the latest post for my Occupy. Hope that helps.

  2. This reminded me of when I took voice lessons the instructor always said “slide down on the high note…don’t force your way up to it.”…seems like much in life is that way.

    • In business, I learned that taking the 1st step would take me 90% of the distance. Fortunately, I applied it in my personal life with the same effect. So I really buy your comment that the size of the obstacle doesn’t matter. Take a step. The only way to get around a corner is to be in motion.

  4. OK I’ve looked at your photo and come back and looked at it again and I’m still not sure whether the deer is real, or a statue, and does it matter?

    What an interesting thought! We don’t even have to see the obstacle to immediately sink into the quicksand of “stuckness”. Thanks for the wake-up. I’m going to pin the quote on my forehead.

    • That deer is real! One area of the island is a point and all the people are highly protective of the deer who live on the point. So they wander about fearlessly as we walk. As I was taking photos, I was trying to see what the doe was looking at. I was concerned there was a fawn on a cliff, but I couldn’t see a thing. I like the way there’s a perfect outline of her ear on the rock behind her.

  5. Slowly I am learning to just be with what seems to be an obstacle. Instead of allowing myself to get discouraged or frustrated, just to be. This is the way it is, it will change when the time is right or when I have learned all that is meant for me. It probably sounds easier than it is, writing it down here, but it is a way that brings peace and energy to me.

    • “It is what it is” brings so much peace to my life, too, Joss. I’m realizing that if I’m supposed to be elsewhere, I will get there especially if I allow myself the good feelings as if I am already there. I just read an article by Martha Beck whose attitude thrills me. She manifests anything she wants. She tells a story about manifesting wild animals when she wants to see them. She was talking about manifesting wolves in a place that hadn’t seen a wolf in years. She wrote something that makes me think you would appreciate who she is:

      “Recently, several clients have told me that they have an odd sense of being disconnected from their bodies. They still feel sensations, but find themselves acting strangely in their own eyes. They have stopped driving. The journey has been taken over by what we, in our coaching system, call their essential self. Some people seem to be able to stop this from happening deliberately, others invite and enjoy it, and others, weirdly, are observing it as it happens to them without any conscious decisions on their part. I’m sure this has always been possible, but I’m just warning you: these days, our essential selves are growing more and more powerful. The blissful game of consciousness clothed in matter is getting faster and more delicious. So if this is happening to you, and it’s freaking you out, relax. Let the wolves drive.”

  6. It is what it is….as well as…I am exactly where I am supposed to be… are also defining paths I have grown to understand and accept Amy…and you are so right, the inner peace that ensues is a blessing as well as a great help in working through it with this peace…

    Thank you for sharing the above passage by Martha Beck…I find I can understand and relate to it on so many levels…I have to look for more reading matter by her…
    God bless…

    • I agree, Shama, she is worth a study. Martha Beck has been introduced to me by my Walking Buddy who is going to lend me one of the books that Ms. Beck has written. I look forward to it.

  7. Your post is well timed for me. I have been thinking about what I write. Is it positive and constructive? Or negative? Or simply egotistical? That’s a quandry for a storyteller or writer. Bad things happen in tales. One can’t just write light, fluffy stuff. So how is evil to be treated neither bowing to darkness nor writing kitsch morality tales? There is a way, of course. It’s what I am trying to find.

  8. I’ve read here twice….paused twice….. I considered what worthwhile offering I had in ME to hand over.
    *laughing* Notsomuch…….but I did play. And I did love hugely this weekend.
    I can take life too seriously, at times.

    And how wonderful the deer is protected if not revered.
    It’s bow season–soon to be rifle season…….soon to be ‘don’t be walking in uncharted territories’ season. *sigh* Human beings are sometimes very silly creatures, huh?

    • We certainly can do that, Tammy. I remember getting back into cycling after years away from it. I was way up north where I’d head out on exploration trails cut through the bush…perfect for my trail bike. As I re-oriented myself, I’d see big holes or boulders in the cut line. I’d concentrate so hard on not hitting them that I missed only a few! Uncanny. When I finally felt confident on the bike again, I quit watching the obstacles and put my attention on the trail. A big lesson learned.
