Sure, I know how to intend, it’s what they used to call goal-setting, right?

Well, not exactly. Truly intentional living is more like an art form, not an exact science. Electro-magnetic, yes, and with considerable aerodynamics, shoot, even fluid mechanics, now that you mention it. Maybe it’s more than a science.

Intending is a powerful gift we humans have. To create and imagine an outcome and literally, weave our energy into that intention– well, it’s powerful. And things happen.

Must we be apologetic? When we keep our word and send forth intentions based in love, well…bring it on, be powerful!

Okay, so, do-gooder goal setting, then, right?

Not really. The main difference between simply goal setting and intentional living is within the idea of control. When we’re goal- setting, we think it’s about us – the little dreamer, our persona or ego. We must arrest “control” of “circumstance”, as if these things exist.

To powerfully intend, we must release control. (We only need to “control” that which is “out of control” anyway, right?) Envisioning our intention, then releasing it into the quantum field of all possibilities (the Big G, if you will) to have the result produced. Me, or more aptly, the “mini-me”? This little i must let go. We must surrender to achieve.

Infinite power is in this surrender. Intend, be passionate, use Wisdom and then release the outcome.

Like at a restaurant, graciously place your order – sincerely and just once with the Waiter, then exercise patience and faith…and await your meal. It may be amusingly different but often better than expected.

Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebur

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time Enjoying one moment at a time Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.

Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will.

That I may be reasonably happy in this life, And supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen.

Serenity Prayer by Sarah McCroskey as adapted from Reinhold Niebur

God grant me the serenity to Release those things I could not experience; the courage to Experience the things I can; and the Trust to be conscious and guided in each moment.

Living one day at a time Joyfully, one moment at a time Embracing the Lessons I designed as my pathway to peace. Knowing myself as Spirit in human form. Being, as Spirit, in this world but Not Bound by it. Transforming this world into the Kingdom of Heaven. Owning my Perception as my Creation.

Trusting that Spirit will make all things right, I release Separation and Fear and surrender to Self as a seamless, whole — the All That Is.

May I be supremely happy in this life, As I am One with the Creator, forever. Amen.

Longing in our heart can be an empowering experience or a painful one, depending on the thinking that accompanies it.

On one hand, longing can be experienced as pain in the heart, when emotionally we are resisting “what is” – as in “ I long for something to be different”.  Longing can be the emotional body’s way of saying, “I don’t like what’s in front of me (or what I am experiencing), and I long for it to be different …more…better…new…or as it used to be”. 

This type of longing can be a ‘not quite conscious’ way of judging or not allowing ‘what is’ which creates personal suffering in the form of wistful or ardent longing.  Through this type of longing, we can also blame others by being disappointed in them and longing for them or ‘things’ to be different.

Typically we think of resistance as a mental notion – judgment, anger, frustration, and impatience – toward ourselves or others.  But our thinking isn’t the only place resistance shows up!   Suffering from the feeling of wanting things to be different than they are right now, can also be a way we resist.  But here we victimize ourselves (rather than judge) by assuming that we are either impotent or thwarted in having change occur in our lives.

Change is, in fact, always occurring in our lives.  It is when we hold a polarity or resist what is that we lock circumstances/energy into a fixed state.  Allowing what is – is always the first step.  This does not mean acquiescing or getting run over, it means being present to something and allowing it to be neutral.  “It is what it is, what it is, what it is”  for right now. 

Until I can allow ‘it’ to be as it is (breathing helps…) my resistant energy is literally feeding the opposite polarity and causing it to stay fixed and persistent.  Our rational mind, which likes to take sides, would have us believe that our resistance or judgment actually diminishes or takes power away from what we’re resisting.  When we step back and perceive what’s happening energetically, we can see that our resistance is actually feeding energy to the very thing we’re resisting, in the form of attention and emotional charge.  So mental resistance (judgment) or emotional resistance (longing) wind up having the same affect – fixing energy to the thing we DON’T want. And the one who suffers is the one resisting, my polarity will not allow what is and let it change

On an entirely different level, however, and almost paradoxically, longing can be a heart urging that expresses an earnest desire to create something – the feeling sense behind a commitment or intent.  In this example, longing could prompt us into purposeful action toward a vision we are committed to fulfilling or seeing come to pass.  “I long (with purpose and desire) for the day when no child on Earth goes hungry.”  Longing here is more like an impassioned visioning along the lines of Martin Luther King’s speech, “I Have a Dream”.

This sort of longing is usually uplifting and is accompanied with a deep sense of passion and inspiration.  And because the vision that one ‘longs for’ is vast and beyond what the collective might consider even “do-able”, it requires not only acting on one’s longing (intent) but opening to Spirit – because such a dream will require more than what we can see, or know, or “humanly” provide.  But our longing allows us to envision and imagine it and to invoke Spirit’s assistance.

This type of longing is for an outcome outside the box, one that compels us – with love in our heart – and attracts Universal energies to it’s fulfillment.  This is the longing that moves mountains, inspires community, opens hearts and requires co-creation. 

No emotional suffering accompanies this type of longing.  It pulls us forward on a ‘heart current’ – a path of inspiration, intent and action.

Your brain is an organ that tracks and stores data.  It’s a high speed computer like no other.

Your local mind takes all new experience and at lightning speed compares and contrasts its records of all previous experience.

So far, so good, after all, it is useful to remember that a skillet handle can be hot, that a floor can be slippery when wet and that getting hit by a bus can be detrimental to your health.  Warning signs are the mind’s stock and trade.

But when we give our power over to the Mind, when we identify with its constant yip, yip, yip, we lose our perspective and quietly, sleepily become entrained to a collective reality – a reality based in duality, fear and separation.

The Mind urges us to be careful, be wary, anticipate problems and mis-steps.  The Mind’s domain is in-the-box.  What has gone before, watchful of patterns that may spell danger.  Compare and contrast.  The Mind is compelled to figure it out.

So that voice, that chatters away in our head, is urging us to “get out ahead of it”, “don’t be caught off-guard”, “do it right”, “hold it together” and for God’s sake, “be in control!”.

“I need to know!”  Like the old Tom Petty song, the Mind jumps up and down, when something new opens, it want to clamp down, put it in a box and KNOW, damnmit.  Analyze, compare and contrast and categorize all experience.  This is the edict of the Mind.

Needing to know drives our brand new, moment-by-moment experience back into the same old groove, which is a loop of the past – especially the unresolved experiences from the past.  Needing to know also hooks us into the agreements we adopted from the collective…”It’ll never work out”, “there’s not enough”, “the sky is falling”.

Now Knowing is something else entirely.  Knowing is being attuned to your inner voice – the quieter voice.  It whispers, “breathe”, “connect with Nature”, “you are loved”.  Knowing has a timeless quality to it.  This is where your inner guidance lives.  Intuitive direction, synchronicity, living Divinity – this is where the truth of your experience – RIGHT NOW lives.  “I just KNOW” and indeed you do.

The Mind can’t get this though, and wants to pull you into justifying, proving, defending, comparing or doubting.

So be it.  Thank the Mind and bless its desire to control.  It thinks it’s keeping you safe and that’s nice. 

But it’s not you.  It’s merely a tool.  Like a saw.  You wouldn’t expect to use a saw to see the stars…  Respect it and honor its limited scope.  But don’t believe that voice is You.

So when you slip into comparing yourself to others, trying to drive outcomes and needing to know… 

Remember, get quiet, LISTEN and open to your Vast Self, your interconnection to the All.  Let your Mind rest on your breath.

See?  You already KNOW.

We now have the opportunity to experience all manner of existence.  How?  By remembering that we are real in the eternal scheme of things.  We exist to experience.  When we enter these realms we come seeking experience, bringing with us our divinity.  Then we forget.  We don’t forget that we seek experience; we forget that we are connected to the Wholeness.  We accept the conditioning of separateness that surrounds our lives.

Many seek to outgrow or transform the ego – the literal manifestation of the idea of a self, separate from all else.  Ancient, spiritual traditions suggest openness and receptivity, being present, interconnection and communion as gateways to the release of the separate, local, persona or ego-self.  Why?  Because to openly receive is to reconnect to the grander, quantum-level Self – the field of all possibility, with nothing left out.

The Earth path is our crucible.  Having forgotten our connection to All, our separate self sees death not eternity; it fears being cast out when such a thing does not exist.  Ego is forged from misunderstanding and compelled to survive. 

Steeped in the construct of separateness since birth, it takes but one profound first experience.  Everyone’s got one of these events, generally at pre-school age.  It’s when your wide-eyed innocence came to an abrupt halt out of something you experienced – you suddenly felt unsafe or no longer loved for who you are.  That’s when the game of survival began in earnest.  Reinforced a few times, you decided you had to put on a persona to protect yourself and fit in. 

You see, the poor, maligned ego is a vital aspect of our “reality” on Earth.  If you are alone and disconnected, you must assign an aspect of yourself to defend you from “outside” threat, be it real or perceived – at any cost.  Forgetting our eternal, holographic self is prerequisite to this game.

The ego, our manifest mask of separation, must be created to exist in this world of density, duality and limitedness.  This world is pressing.  It engages us in a constant act of flight from harm.  Why?  Because we have forgotten Who We Are.   In the afterlife, “post game wrap up” we always find ourselves safely back in Spirit, the quantum field of All/Love.  But the path of the enlightened one is to achieve this Truth prior to our departure – from eternity and Oneness to separation and survival and back again. 

When we remember Who We Are, the ego is soothed and quieted.  It can finally stand down.   We are free, here and now.  When we remember Who We Are, we hold a fine, clear, center no matter what is piped in from the “real world”.  When we remember Who We Are, we access answers and solutions from the non-local mind.  When we remember Who We Are, we witness the pleasure, joy and ease of a non-personal, overview – where threats to survival are a backdrop illusion, mere tactics in a compelling game of Risk, which we have jointly constructed, through act or agreement, to learn from our time on this planet. 

When we remember and live true to Who We Are, we move, full circle, through this humanity and create along with our true nature, as Creator, a new game.  It’s called Heaven on Earth.   

Game on!

Mythical or not, of this “reality” or another dimensional parallel, there was the story of Atlantis which compels our imagination and lives powerfully in our experience to this day.

Before the days of “fact checkers” and carbon dating for historical accuracy, the story went something like this:

A civilization of beings existed upon the Earth for many thousands of years.  Their numbers and base of talent were comprised of evermore ancient ones – descendants of Mu, joined with beings from other star systems and ancestors of former claimants of Earth’s gone by.

This civilization rose to great heights of scientific exploration and experimentation beyond anything our technological civilization can fathom today.  Working with energetic transmission, crystal technology and alchemy of astounding accuracy and magnitude, the Atlanteans brought the linearity and the active, radiant, sky/male polarity to its pinnacle of existence on Earth.

The masses, each holding divine frequency and consciousness well beyond our current collective capacity, enjoyed lives of clarity and compassion, natural pleasure and cosmic inter-relatedness.  It was indeed a Golden Age.

Purposely omitting the details and “who done its” of the drama and destruction that led to its fall, suffice it to say Atlantis and its member population plummeted from the heights to the depths.  Physically, energetically, psychologically, emotionally, dimensionally and in consciousness itself – Atlantis fell hard and on every level – excruciatingly so.  

What then was the cost to those who travelled this soul path – be it forging this peak civilization, seeding its power, incarnationally experiencing, accidentally or intentionally crafting its downfall – what becomes of the soul journeyers from the Epoch of Atlantis?

EXPECTATION = DISAPPOINTMENT

So here we are.  We appointed an outside source to generate the quality of our life.  Granted, it looks like a wide-spread conspiracy to usurp our inner authority but it always takes two to tango.

This has been the game.  Our parents bought it, our teachers bought it, our employers bought it, our politicians bought it and our greedy corporate executives bought it – the monarchs and dictators and arms dealers and oligarchs bought it.  We ALL bought it.

There is nothing in the OUTSIDE world that can or will change the game.  The ONLY thing that changes the game is you and I taking 100% RESPONSIBILITY for how WE EACH BOUGHT IT.  And then stop buying it.

GETTING FREE

When I listen to the news (or not) and question the source of information, I get a little freer. When I notice that Europe, Japan and other countries don’t accept Genetically Modified Foods into their food supply or fluoride into their water supply and ask how that happened and act, I get a little more free.

When I allow myself to unravel the MESSAGES I ADOPTED AND NOW TELL MYSELF about job options, the “inevitability” of hunger and slave labor and scarcity and war…and STOP BUYING HOW MY OWN MIND CREATES FEAR AND LIMITATION………now my liberation becomes truly palpable.

And when I see you as whole and capable, and reach out to connect with Like-Minded Ones, with Nature, with Earth’s intelligence I begin to see there’s a fractal pattern here as well.

I start to notice there is an UNSEEN world filled with grace and guidance that whispers and breaths possibility, interconnection, love and true soul nourishment into mySelf and this world. Then, and only then do I get a glimpse of the true freedom inherent in an ALREADY WORKING UNIVERSE.  This is a Universe that I am already connected to, and always have been – on the inside.  And a Source of beauty, truth, and unconditional love that is my true Self – interconnected, flourishing and timeless.  It is All of our true selves.

And I didn’t have to BUY anything.

Expectation = Disappointment

Dependence =  No Choice

Interdependence, Inner dependence = Joy in Belonging…already…nothing to do…to an

Already Working Universe.

New Game, All inclusive…

Wholeness Back Guarantee.

~ by Sarah McCroskey (continued from Dec. 24)

It is hard to refute that we live in a world where we have been prepped, shredded and spindled into OBEYING OUTSIDE AUTHORITY.  We can rehash the injustice of it, assign appropriate blame and know we are right and “they” are wrong.  But does it feel better?  Once the crooks are identified do I have my power back?  If it were only that simple, any thinking person would have fully recovered their voice and power by now.

Then why haven’t we?

We have accurately defined the problem – both personally and globally.  Through a repeating fractal pattern ranging literally from the molecular to the familial to the social to the global collective to the Earth habitat – we ARE ENTRAINED to depend on an outside structure that is out of alignment with Nature, health and flourishment.

Shall I get specific? 

  • If we consume a “standard” diet, use conventional household products, garden using the relied upon methods, drink from municipal water sources, manage our health with prescription drugs and then wash it all down with a few beers and the evening news the cells of our bodies are inundated with toxic substances night and day.  Through our food supply, water supply, healthcare, entertainment and news sources we are molecularly, physically and psychologically contaminated.
  • If we were raised in a “standard” family where questioning authority, speaking freely and (heaven forbid) feeling your feelings were disallowed or maligned as weak, rebellious or disloyal we soon learned to keep quiet, obey the rules, not “talk back” and develop strategies for hiding our true self.  After years of practice, our own judging/victimizing mind takes over and we internalize these messages.
  • If we were trained within the “standard” schools and religious organizations the directive to “fit in” for fear of being graded, punished, humiliated or outcast hammered home the expedient social messaging – become a cog in an already defined system: school, work, church and state – or else.

Feeling alone, separate and pissed off yet?  Wait, there’s more… 

  • Now once you reach adulthood and begin to look around at your world you may already be in debt to a world economy that says you must work outside your home for the major portion of your day, for the major portion of your week, for the major portion of you life – whether this suits you, your interests, your self expression or your loved ones.  If you’re lucky you’ll be able to “make a living.”  Retirement?  Probably not.
  • And isn’t “the world” an inspiring place to dwell?   Entrained to unconsciously accept world hunger, war, social injustice, inequity, pollution, crooked politics, scarcity, fear and stress – is it any wonder why people eat, drink, gamble and engage in every other kind of escapist behavior?  Or just get depressed.
  • And then the topper.  The planetary level of our fractal pattern of entrainment – we’re blowing through our resources and demolishing our own habitat through pollution, out-of-control growth and disregard for our Earth.

Poor us.  “They’ve” really done it to us, haven’t “they”.  This is the true nature of the “99%”.  It is FAR beyond mere economics…can you see that?

“But we EXPECTED them to take care of us.” 

“But they TOLD me that if I got good grades I’d succeed.”

“But I WAS LED TO BELIEVE that if I PLAYED BY THE RULES I’d be okay.”

Isn’t the bottom line, “I thought that if I gave ‘them’ my power and organized my entire existence around pleasing an OUTSIDE AUTHORITY that I’d be safe, happy, and well-liked.”   I’d be small and self-doubting, but at least they wouldn’t kill me.

EXPECTATION = DISAPPOINTMENT

So here we are.  We appointed an outside source to generate the quality of our life.  Granted, it looks like a wide-spread conspiracy to usurp our inner authority but it always takes two to tango.

This has been the game.  Our parents bought it, our teachers bought it, our employers bought it, our politicians bought it and our greedy corporate executives bought it – the monarchs and dictators and arms dealers and oligarchs bought it.  We ALL bought it.

There is nothing in the OUTSIDE world that can or will change the game.  The ONLY thing that changes the game is you and I taking 100% RESPONSIBILITY for how WE EACH BOUGHT IT.  And then stop buying it.

Have you ever felt disappointed by your partner, business associate, boss or even your child?  Such an experience of deflation, maybe powerlessness or simply sadness is attached to disappointment.

But if you look at the word itself, dis-appoint-ment it really isn’t something that “happens to us.” You can’t experience DIS-appointment if you didn’t APPOINT a power, hope or expectation to something or someone outside of yourself in the first place.  “Ah, me…I gave my power away and someone actually took off with it.  How could they!”

Perhaps the real question is “Could they?”

Our enculturation, training and social conditioning assures us – YES!  “They” could take our power, our self esteem, even our Spirit away from us.  But is it true?
