Really Living Life

I haven’t written a blog in a wee while so forgive me if I’m a little bit rusty. I’ve just finished an intensive with a beautiful soul called Lin. She has been listening to my podcasts for years and has loved reading and listening to my blog audios too. It’s refreshing to know someone does but with over 1500 listens a week without much promotion I know for sure people are tuning in globally. I’m also currently renewing my website with another beautiful soul, Susan Wheeler Hall and I do believe she tried to secretly chastise me in the most lovingly gentle way to get off my ass and start writing again. So I listened to what they both had to say yet only felt compelled to write today.

Today I was on a teeny tiny twin-prop aeroplane flying with Mr. Lovely to the beautiful Scottish island of Lewis for a wee holiday together.

Our flight was quite early and I woke this morning with even more of a sense of naughtiness and mischievousness than usual at the thought of the opportunity of adventure with Jerry. We traveled by car to the railway station, took a train and then a bus to the airport. I’ve been giggling, laughing, having fun with Mr. Lovely, talking nonstop and sending our daughters pictures of the tiny plane and their tall mother and father. It’s a wondrous sight and if I could earn money from Mr. Lovely’s eye-rolling at my being this morning I’d be a very wealthy lady!

I was buzzing inside yet totally calm. As the plane took off. My heart was full of gratitude for this moment and that we are both able to enjoy this adventure together. My eyes filled with tears.

I excitedly took photos and film of the plane taking off, secretly feeling like a tourist capturing every single moment of motion.  I got lost in thought watching the plane fly through clouds to a clear sky and in each and every minute of the plane ascending I was reminded of energy. The gorgeous spiritual energy of all life that supports the atmosphere, the weather, the changing seasons, the air we breathe. Also the incredible intellect of man in discovering the gift of flight and the creation of aeroplanes to fly humans all over the world.

And then my thought-stream reminded me of my conversations with Lin, my intensive student this week, she is roughly the same vintage as me and was gentle, loving and wise. During one of our conversations, I expressed to Lin how I feel about life. I know beyond doubt I am spiritual energy in a human form. I call it my meat sac …. I also know beyond any doubt that my spirit is ageless and my human form is not, it is subject to deterioration. That’s the nature of the game. I can look after my human form as best I can but I can never stop it aging. Yet my spirit has no age nor does it age. Lin and I discussed this a lot. I love that we did because it appears to me that so many humans believe and get caught up in their thoughts about “age” and restrict and limit their life accordingly.

Your sense of who you are will determine what you believe you need and what matters to you in life and whatever matters to you will have the power to disturb you. Are those thoughts obvious to you?

This morning I felt even more mischievous and naughty than usual. My conversations with Lin about her true nature have by default ignited my own with a beautiful sense that something has been let go of within me. I feel lighter and even more peaceful than I did yesterday. I know that insight has happened without content and to be honest, I really don’t care what that insight was because the feeling I’m living in is simply divine. What an incredible space to live life from.

How about you?

Until next time

Take care, be naughty and let life live through you,

All my love,
