I Yam What I Yam
I'm happy to report that the wealth corner is nearly finished and it is beautiful. When it's complete I will post a picture. The chateau has been in disarray as I've worked on this project, but I cleaned up yesterday. I have my living room back. Yay.
What is the difference between stillness and stagnation? Well it's a matter of degree but also of timing, yes? I say yes. My spirit guides reminded me yesterday that intensity is one of my personal birthrights. It's interesting to look at this as a birthright instead of a flaw or problem. Hmmm.
I don't have to always tilt into the drama of it all, as was once my practice, but it is my tendency. There's a sweet balance integral to looking at it in these terms. A dip into stagnation (the unhealthy, extreme opposite of drama) is also my tendency, a birthright, or so I'm told. My guides say this is the way in which I experience the full spectrum of emotional/physical/spiritual states. It is my birthright to live on the edges as well as in the center of things. OK dudes (speaking to spirit guides), thanks. It's OK to be true to my nature while neither blaming myself for being who I am nor giving up on the idea that I can - and am - changing at a fundamental level. All "truths" contain paradox, yes? I say yes.
Did that make any sense? Apologies if it doesn't. Disenchantment followed by enchantment, followed by awakening from that dream: this is my current practice. It is so interesting! Tricky. And obviously very hard to write about.
In fact I would delete this post before publishing except I love these pictures so much. Mediocre blog posts are also a birthright - apparently! So be it. Happy Sunday, y'all.
