Let Your Kite Soar

Although times change, the theme of life remains more or less consistent. It challenges us to grow. The world is currently going through some very challenging times. All of us are well aware, both personally and collectively, of their nature. We also realize the importance of focusing on solutions, as opposed to problems; for what we focus upon expands in our life. We know that by sowing STRENGTH, COURAGE and FAITH in our daily life, we will ultimately harvest results that reflect those positive attributes.

This short article is intended to offer a spark that may help ignite your hope, your passion, and your trust that all will be okay–no matter what happens. With that in mind, I offer a short poem I wrote in my thirties:

Flying Kites

Once upon a grey September day,

I strolled into a park in which

A young boy was flying his kite–

So high I thought he’d surely run out of string.

Time swept me away as I watched him.

With muscles taut, and arms pumping,

He skillfully weaved his kite across the sky,

Slicing it through clouds that fell apart in its wake.

The wind was gusting like an angry billow,

But this young boy, undaunted,

Let his kite fly higher, and higher still.

He was fearless!

He reminded me

Of my lost, kite-flying days

When I’d tried to fly my kite

And failed.

My kite always seemed to catch the trees

Or slam headfirst into the ground.

When dusk was falling,

I walked to this young, gifted pilot

As he was reeling in his kite.

When I looked more closely

I could see that his kite was different

Than the kite I’d crashed so many times.

His kite was homemade, shaped somewhat like a box,

With parts that had been taped and glued and mended.

I asked the boy his name and age

And complimented him on his kite and his skill.

“Ah, heck,” replied this boy of nine,

“My kites wouldn’t fly at all last year.

I crashed six of my favourites,

But I just dragged them home,

Fixed them,

And tried again.”

We talked awhile longer,

But when we departed to go our separate ways,

I took his lesson with me.

The Voice of Icarus

Today’s article must be prefaced with a little information: Icarus was a character in Greek Mythology, the son of Daedalus. Both the father and son attempted to fly away from the island of Crete by attaching feathers to their bodies with wax. Before leaving, the father cautioned Icarus not to fly to low (to avoid the dampness of the sea) or too high (to avoid the heat of the sun). You may or may not know that Icarus was so entralled with flight that he wanted to fly higher and higher.

The world is in turmoil; there’s so much fear present. Due to this, many persons who possess tremendous skill and talent are (understandably) afraid to step into the unknown and dare to express their Greatness. Fear will keep us grounded forever…if we let it. To help us focus on what’s possible, I offer you the following poem that I wrote thirty years ago. May it inspire you to continue to reach for your dreams:

***

The Voice of Icarus

 “I, Icarus,

Once soared with eagles high.

I swooped, I dived,

I felt the rush of warm air slipping by;

And in my thrilling, pounding heart, I knew

Sweet rapture of the bluest sky–

Not just because I dared believe,

More, because I dared to try.

One path to freedom, one truth to hold

Is steadfast optimism–fly, be bold!

Leave common ground, be skyward bound!

Strap on your wings—your dreams and goals,

And risk the chance of falling

To fly to your potential.

I, Icarus,

Who flew with waxed-on wings

Too near the sun

Have, even in my falling,

Won.”

R. Arthur Russell

Special Note:

Dear Readers: All that you’re going through right now is preparing you to express the Greatness within you–that “is” the Real You. Through you, your dreams are given opportunity to fly. Have faith. Believe. Visualize the result that you desire. Act. I believe in you.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

Service…With a Smile

Guilty–as charged! Yes, the title of this article is cliché, but there’s good news: The content isn’t; but you’ll be the judge. As you may have guessed, the content relates to service–the real kind; not the smarmy “have-a-nice-day” (insert roll of the eyes) kind. On a deeper level, service can be interpreted as Purpose, with a capital P. Through wisdom, we learn that Being, Life, and Purpose are all so interdependently woven that one thread cannot be withdrawn without tugging on the others. Please let me explain.

It’s been shared in the past, but the message is so important that it’s worth repeating again: “We’re not here to ‘get a life’ but to express the life that ‘is’ us.” The majority of persons may find this a perplexing statement; because from the perspective of the little “i” that presumes to be running our daily lives, it can certainly seem as though we live for the sake of our “self.” The “me-kind” of purpose, which most of us may have demonstrated at one time or another, is ultimately empty and meaningless; for such means that our sole reason for living is to keep the egoic self (the thief) fed, watered, and physically and mentally satisfied. Such is a brochure to a destination–and a way of living–that most individuals wouldn’t want to visit.

There’s a spiritual saying that can is paraphrased as follows: “Before you can move into the big house, you must first move out of the little house.” It means that before we can recognize our True Self (the Big House), we have to move out of the little house (the ‘i”); and we do so by investigating its nature. The question “Who Am I?” is a good place to begin. One of the glorious realizations during my transition of houses occurred when I read–and understood–the following quote. Its measure of truth–a 10/10–is deserving of center stage:

The tree does not eat of its own fruit.”

What a powerful quote–so vibrantly ripe with meaning! They resonate with the core of our Being. They barge right past the little guy or gal who’s been pretending to be “me” and shout: “Why do I live? What’s my purpose? How may I help, contribute, or serve? When we find the answer, we have discovered the gold that’s to be shared with everyone! Does this describe a life of self-sacrifice? Yes, most definitely! But here’s a related point that’s referred to in the first paragraph: The self that’s surrendered isn’t real. We only sacrifice the thief that’s been robbing our life of true joy.

A secondary, yet important, point is worth making: When we knowingly discover our True Self, our lingering energies of the little house may tempt us to remark about the purpose that others express. It could be tempting to judge. Resist; better yet–don’t. Would such behaviour express our highest ideal? No. Everyone one of us is at a different stage in our journey; due to this, all of us–at heart–are doing the best that we can, given our vantage point. A note of profound meaning is worth remembering: If love is our benchmark, we can’t go wrong.

A perfect world (balanced in Harmony, Truth, and Love) demonstrates that the real reason we live is for one another. That means that the good that I do serves you; and that the good that you do serves me or one or more of our worldwide brothers and sisters. Everyone is included; for The All has no room for exclusion. The phrase that describes such a way of living is Peace on Earth.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

Dream On! I Salute You!

I write this article to share a personal account; to inspire, not to mourn. It relates to a boat that I once built (I apologize for the poor quality of the photos) and with which I intended to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Surefire had taken me five years of proverbial blood, sweat, and tears to get to the point depicted in the photos. The year was 1990. As you’ve probably guessed, I didn’t make it–not even close. My intended voyage was over before it truly began; on launch day, in fact. TransAtlantic crossings by high-tech rowboats are now, although still not a cake-walk, far more common. When I made my attempt, such crossings were considered relatively rare–if not foolish.

At the time, I was unaware of the True Self beyond the mask of me. I thought I was just a guy with a heart full of dreams. They were my intoxicants. A solo bicycle trip across Canada in 1980 had helped to nurture my belief that I could achieve any goal to which I set my mind; so I knew how good accomplishment can taste. After the experience of my ignominious row attempt, I also learned the painful lesson of how bad a seeming failure can feel. My biggest mistake was that deep down I believed that I was a failure. For many years, I, therefore, believed that the only solution was a second attempt. I worked, I saved, I planned; but for a variety of reasons that second attempt didn’t occur.

Robert Frost one wrote the following line: “Mans reach should exceed his grasp.” This is so true! It is when we are discontent (which doesn’t mean unhappy) that we dare to reach beyond our current circumstances. Every advance in humanity is built on the vision and efforts of dreamers. Each of us is a dream contributor! In our hearts, we hold a reason for being, a purpose, an ideal for which we will rise early and stay up late! If our goal relates to service, invention, and a desire to express the love within our hearts, we are on track! With this type of goal, we cannot fail!

What did I learn through the experience? I learned to dig deep and discover my True Self, the essential “I” that is beyond any of our human drama and suffering. I learned to distinguish between a goal which the egoic self deems so important; and truly worthwhile goals that serve the betterment of everyone. I learned that when we are of service to another, we invariably benefit–for we are all One. I learned that sometimes not getting what we desire works out for the better. I learned to keep on dreaming; and that we only truly fail when we give up trying. I learned the importance of embracing all of me, including the parts that were painful to accept. My message to you is this: Keep dreaming! The way to the achievement of your goal will be discovered as you move forward!

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

Glorious Bridges

The study of the Law of Attraction is much deeper than most individuals realize. For the majority, it will only be about acquiring money, possessions, or fame. Such desires are certainly not wrong; for every desire which is not intentionally hurtful or harmful to another human being will be supported by The Universe. Through our study, however, we not only learn about manifesting but also about our essential nature.

The title of this article may seem deceptive or even misleading. It would be easy to assume it relates to marvelous structures such as The Golden Gate Bridge, Sydney Harbour Bridge, or the Rialto Bridge that grace this beautiful world. That context of bridge will be left to another writer. The bridges that serve as the subject of this article go by human names–such as Gustav, Julie, Hakim, Maria, Evan, and Jennie, to mention only a few given to the almost eight billion individuals on this planet.

I wonder if most of you–glorious co-creators–realize how marvelous you are. Are you truly aware of your incredible nature? Do you realize that you are creators descended from the most Glorious Creator of All? You know, the One who birthed the stars and started our hearts beating? And when you quiet your mind, do you realize that via the power of your imagination you can fashion and make real any dream? Such is your power. You alone possess the key to unlock the reality of your dreams.

This life–this bridge of human trials and joys–is an opportunity beyond compare. It is our  chance to bring our grandest visions to life. Within us, we bear dreams carried from the field of infinite possibilities! For some, that will mean designing and building actual bridges; they will become the architects, engineers, and the labourers. Others will share their creativity in different aspects of life–perhaps in family, medicine, law, politics, religion, science, or the arts. For as many categories that may be named, we–Glorious Bridges–can and will invent more categories still! Each of us is a unique and unlimited expression of The Divine!

This article is a tribute to you! Please take a bow; pat yourselves on the back; let your heart sing! But most of all, keep on dreaming! Your dreams matter. Without them, this world would begin an inevitable march to the grave. Through you, newness builds upon newness; life upon life; invention upon invention. Just so you know…I BELIEVE IN YOU! For inspiration, you might enjoy this presentation (read by Brian Scott) about Neville Goddard.

A Lesson About Affirmations

Anyone who is familiar with the teachings of the Law of Attraction will also be familiar with affirmations. To affirm is to declare–beforehand–that what we desire is already manifest…NOW. The stipulation of “now” is important; for if we affirm that our desire “will be” achieved at some point other than now, our desire “will remain” lost in a fictional future. All there is, is now. Go ahead, try to experience the future–perhaps next Thursday. When next Thursday appears, it will be lived now. To the majority of persons, this point about affirmations may seem ludicrous; but what’s truly ridiculous is to leave the quality of our life up to chance. Every professional athlete knows the value of visualization and positive affirmations; for what we impress upon the mind–whether favorable or unfavorable–will eventually be expressed. In golfing terms “you don’t sink the putt by believing that you’re going to miss it.” The heart (subconscious) wins every time; for “as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

The title of this article refers to an affirmation that I used for many years. Over and over I would think it and feel is as deeply as possible; unaware that I was using it…incorrectly. Here what I was mentally saying: “What ‘I’ can conceive and believe, ‘I’ can achieve.” Does it seem bad? Faulty? Wrong? I mean, it’s good to believe in our abilities, right? Anyone with a deeper understanding of the teachings from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill will recognize my error immediately. The Universe functions according to spiritual laws which are based in Truth; and our misuse of those laws will not reverse them, no matter how good our intentions.

Now, here’s the actual affirmation: “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Does the difference seem remarkable? I hope so, because the point is important. In the first example, “I” was claiming to be the doer of what is achieved in “my” life. This is erroneous. “I” am not–and cannot be–the doer of what occurs in my life. I realize that it certainly appears that way; but that’s not founded in Truth. It is true that I “think” my desires, but it is Mind that creates the apparent reality of them. To support this, I offer a quote from Paramahansa Yogonanda in his book entitled The Law of Success: “Mind is the creator of everything.” The Bible states the same message in Acts 17:28: “For in him we live, and move, and have our being.” Through my ignorance of my essential nature, I didn’t realize that I was neither the body nor the mind. Our true nature is Spirit, or Awareness. What occurs as “daily life” is actually occurring in what is referred to as the waking state.

Contrary to popular misconception, consciousness does not arise from biological processes. It is also not personal; despite the claims of our ego, which will protest otherwise. Only Consciousness is conscious. Researchers have been studying the subject for many years and have been unable as yet to find the location of consciousness within the body. They never will. Consciousness comes first. It’s What we are. To learn more about the use of affirmations, you might enjoy this presentation by Jessica Connor at Your Youniverse on Youtube.

Observations in Co-Creation

observations-in-creation

Oh, how I remember the days–when I doubted that I had created the experiences that had occurred in my life. Sure, I reasoned that I had created the good in my life; but how could I possibly have created the bad…and the ugly too? I could not accept this until my study of the Law of Attraction led me further along the mystical path. Then it became clear. Perhaps it’s now your turn. Let’s see if the logic makes sense to you, as it did for me.

To reach that turning point, please contemplate one aspect of your life. It might relate to where you live; your current career; or the partner with whom you share your life. Can you–with just a little introspection–accept responsibility for a result that manifest in the past? If so, can you step a little further into the introspection tunnel and admit “I created that”?” Is it by accident that you live in your present home and location? Or did your thinking play an integral role. Is it by accident that you married your spouse? Or did your thinking also lead to that? And of your career, were you dropped into it by Fate? Or did your thinking–perhaps through childhood daydreaming–place you in your current field of employment?

If you can logically trace the breadcrumb trail of thought–to action–to result in one aspect of your life, you’re in the position of power to create deliberately again. First: Decide what you desire. Make the vision strong, clear, vibrant, and impelling. Second: Believe, believe, believe. Visualize each and every day; making sure to imbue your visualizations with emotion. Feel the aliveness of your vision by engaging all of your senses. Third: Receive through action. When you feel the intuitive nudges to act, step through the door that leads to your desired future and dare to act; even if such action involves facing your fears. When you do, you”ll behold your dream made real.

Place Your Reservation

Place Your Reservation

Imagine with me, if you will, that you walk into a fast food restaurant and approach the woman behind the counter. You look her in the eye and innocently say, “Yes, my last name is Smith and I have a reservation for two, at seven thirty. My friend and I would like a table with a view.”  What type of response do you think you would receive? Imagine with me, also, that you visit the beautiful state of Utah. However, instead of appreciating the beauty of it’s amazing vistas and rock formations, that you’re disappointed because you can’t reserve a hotel room with a view of the Pacific! And–you’re probably asking yourself–the point of this?

The point relates to an axiom of the Principle of Correspondence in the Kybalion, a book of ancient wisdom. It states: As Above, so Below; As Below, so Above. Meaning? It means that there is correspondence–or correlation–among the planes of being and life. The three planes– The Physical, Mental, and Spiritual–are not actual planes but arbitrary divisions or degrees in the scale of life. Such divisions are not hard and fast but shade in and out of one another. The Principle of Correspondence is important to understand, for with it, we can–and will–manifest more effectively.

What does this mean, practically? It means that to manifest more effectively we must align ourselves spiritually, mentally, and physically. In the spiritual: We must habitually be whatever we desire. In the mental: we must habitually think of what we desire. In the physical, we must habitually act in ways that reflect what we desire. The three states must align–or correspond–before we’ll experience the manifestation.

Using the analogy of the reservations from the first paragraph, that means that we cannot manifest prosperity by being, thinking, and acting poor. That means that we cannot enjoy health by being, thinking, and acting sick. That means that we cannot enjoy success by being, thinking, and acting failure. To be, think, and act in ways that contradict what we desire–does not make sense; in the same way that seeking a view of the Pacific from Utah does not make sense. You just can’t get that from there.

So, what do we desire? Is it great health, increased wealth, wonderful relationships, or more success? If so, it’s time to place our reservations. How to you do this? Through the powers of our imagination–first. Be it, think it, act it! We must imagine what we desire, and concentrate with patient and detached persistence. By doing so, we’re placing our reservation with the Universe. After that, we have only to remain strong in our faith, and then act upon our intuitive nudges. Law will bring what we desire.

All Systems Go!

sea flight sky earth

The mood of a nation–yes, even the world–is dependent on the mood of the people. Why? Because we literally are the world. Each and every one of us matter. By our spirit, we either rise or plummet; by our strength we either swim or sink; by our courage we either gloriously triumph or temporarily fail. We–and know this in the marrow of our bones–are going to get through this present challenge and shine.

As holds true for the launch of any rocket, we must prepare ourselves thoroughly and check our equipment to make certain that all systems are a Go for liftoff. We can do this right here, right now, by checking the systems within our own influence; beginning with awareness of what’s going on within our own minds. Checklist please:

  • Are we breathing right now?
  • Is there some form of food–even if it’s only bread and butter–in our home?
  • Is there water to drink?
  • Do we have friends, even one?
  • Do we still have the strength to be a friend?
  • Are we currently able to rise and shine within the confines of our home?
  • Have we reason to hope–perhaps based on past challenges–that goodness will triumph?
  • Do we possess the concentration to focus our mind upon something positive?

The point of this checklist is obvious, no doubt. Yes, of course, I’m presenting the list to help raise us out of the fear-based darkness of our minds, and into the light of the present moment. The message is intended to inspire us to notice the beauty that still surrounds us…now. This in no way is meant to deny the current situation in the world, or to trivialize any of the tragedies that have occurred. The truth is, however, that sickness and death due to some nature or other is happening every day in this world. The insidious virus of the mind (aka, fear) is far more virulent than anything we may encounter physically. Given the chance it will destroy us.

We can still lift off to a bright new world. To state such is not poppycock or a pitiful denial of what’s currently making news. To overcome our present challenge, however, will require that we deliberately turn away from the tempting–almost irresistible–habit of focusing on every bit of bad news that is currently making the rounds. We possess the strength to see beyond this; and when we do, the attitude and health of the entire planet will reflect our changed state of mind. Ten, nine, eight, seven…

Present-Moment Living

IMG_20200224_171140_edit_edit_edit (2)

There are many great authors and teachers who have taught us how to come back to the transcendent beauty of the present moment: Eckhart Tolle, through The Power of Now; Jon Kabbat Zinn, through Coming to Our Senses; Rupert Spira, through The Nature of Consciousness–to name only a few. For persons (egos) who are unconsciously obsessed with their doings, this may seem an absolutely absurd and useless subject. “What do you mean, I should be still and appreciate the beauty around me! I have business meetings to attend to, major transactions to conclude, and a 12:15 appointment to summit Mount Everest!”

Consider, if you will, what many of  us have previously valued:

  • Multi-Tasking: The highly revered ability to accomplish not only one task at a time, but three or–better yet–five! Productivity at any expense, whether personal or professional, has been praised as the crowning glory of humankind. A sidebar should be added: Once started, this self-driven habit must be continued until the first shovelfuls of dirt are splattering upon the top of our coffin. Job well done!
  • Earning Money: The ability to earn money–not just enough to provide for the necessities of life and to tuck away some savings–is often the little-g god that we worship. Many of us may have wanted to earn enough of the stuff to impress the neighbours to our left. Won’t they be envious when we tell them our story of our wonderful travels, or show up in our new (insert the brand of the nuts-and-bolts thing here). In all likelihood, however, the neighbour to our left doesn’t give a damn about our life story because their too busy trying to impress the neighbour two doors to their right.
  • Personal Goals: A topic near–and now not-so-dear–to my heart. A short sentence sums up my sentiments now:  “It seemed like a good idea at the time.” All of us are created to pursue our goals; because the drive to create is encoded into our DNA. We are creators. Setting out to achieve our goals is still worthwhile, but wouldn’t our goals–and the quality of our lives–be enhanced by deliberately bringing balance and harmony to whatever we do?

The short list above could have been much longer; but the number of points doesn’t matter, only the underlying message. How can an article about present-moment living be of any assistance right now, especially given the current focus of a virus in the world? It can be of great value, if we will slow down–even a little–and consider the following point: Fear and doom and gloom are not present in the current moment. Nonsense!” readers may cry. Are you implying that there isn’t a very important situation occurring in the world right now? Not at all; that’s not the point. The intended message is this: When we deliberately bring our attention back to the present moment, we escape so much of the mind-created torment. If we will Be Still–even for a few moments–we can realize  that the fear we may be experiencing is a creation of the mind. In the present moment, before any negative information is analyzed or repeated ad nauseam, fear does not exist. It can’t.

The call of this article is to awaken to what is actually occurring before the mind intrudes and shouts:  Wake up Johnny and Jane, it’s time to be afraid again! That doesn’t imply that we should not act in responsible ways that are sensible and a benefit to ourselves and our neighbours. We wash our hands; we respectfully keep our distance; we wait in line; and we consciously direct our attention to even one aspect of our life for which we can be grateful.

This article is not intended as Pollyanna mumbo-jumbo. It’s purpose is to help guide persons out of their mind-induced fear, and into the beauty that is here and now, despite all that is happening in the world. There’s an even greater realization that can occur by practicing present-moment living: We can discover What–not who–we truly are. When the mind is stilled, we can realize that fear is no longer generated. We will also notice that the little self who was so fearful (the one made from personality and form) has faded into the background, or gone missing all together. When this dawns upon our awareness, we realize that we don’t have to think to exist! What is it that knows this to be the case? Our true identity, which is beyond the mind: Consciousness itself.

Many of you will be familiar with Earth Hour; a period of sixty minutes when we collectively turn off our lights to decrease the demand for electricity in the world. As human beings committed to caring for one another, please consider this: Let’s all power down our mind for at least one hour each day, especially if our mind isn’t generating anything positive or worthwhile. In doing so, we will save ourselves and the collective consciousness a whole lot of grief. (If you feel that “Soul Hour” is an idea worth sharing, please pass this article along to our brothers and sisters.) Namaste.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).
