Wants

It is said we cannot excel at more than eight things at once – the octopus hasn’t ten arms. We have our foundational four of needs, and the other four we get to choose. At least to create a stable executive structure, which “8” is in Chinese numerology.

It serves us to choose to focus our wants- especially now! Our gaze on a bigger picture, will in the long run, individually and collectively better us all.

It is worthwhile to know thyself, but you must want to, or at least be willing.

When one wishes to program (towards a future desired ideal), change from in to out, alchemical –have some place for dream tethering. Such as a rock or wish board – and yet, if you expose your wishes too soon, someone might laugh, and then you’ll might trivialize them too = not take as seriously.

*

Consider putting up reminders of nature or things made with love that inspire you. As you place them, do it slowly and deliberately. These are a form of anchoring. Inherently there is no specific value perhaps, but with intention and re-focusing, they are helpful.

*

With practice, they can  be a channel of sorts- to keep you on track. Shucks- you can use your hand to make a little tunnel you can whisper into! Not good nor bad, they are but tools.

*

If you don’t know what you want, which I didn’t until recently, other than my “mission” as stated on my ‘about’ page, ask G-d  or whatever you chose to call your Higher Power, to support you on your path towards your greatest happiness- and highest good as pertains to all beings.

Make a piece of artwork- meanwhile praying silently (keep that ‘secret’ too). The ‘right’ pictures will come.

Perhaps we hope not to “use” a specific ‘tool’ on which we’ve been relying. When trying to shift a behavior, we are starting from one state, and aiming for another- If the diet (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) has been regular for a while, stopping or changing suddenly, may feel traumatic.

Sometimes the body thinks, it just needs to make or do more– to get a ‘fix’, just in case it missed something!

During times of transition, one can feel hyper-sensitive. Each footstep we make then, may not feel sure. During these times, you need a friend.

Be kind to her (your soma self) and to Her- She will make it worth your while!

May all beings be happy!

Happy Holy week and the end of Lenten Season!

AMEN!
