The spiritual quest is simple: we need to:
(1) Recognise that, in our present ‘state of mind’ we are not as we could be.
(2) Begin to follow those ‘inklings’ within us to a new ‘Kingdom-Queendom of me’.
(3) Keep our eyes – and minds – open for clues that may provide simple or substantial course-corrections.
(4) Observe everything as though the end of this day were the end of our life…
Simple then… But we may need some help.
There are some deeply helpful tools in our kitbag that can help us take what may seem an initially unsettling journey.
One of these is the EMOTIONS.
Emotions are the movements of energies within us. We are elated when they move in one way and depressed when they move in another but the whole framework of their movements belongs to us.
And our reaction to them governs everything…
All of this means we have carefully crafted our negative emotions…
Emotional energy is one of the greatest allies we can have to propel our progress to the Deep-Me.
We are not used to the influx of ‘right-energy’ from within us.
When it first comes, it’s like an infusion of the most delicious optimism, and there is no doubt it belongs to ‘you’.
In posts that follow, we will explore the elements and steps of this journey. The content will mirror the stages of the Water-Circle+Cross workshop on the weekend on 19-21 May. For more details contact us on Rivingtide@gmail.com.
