I’ve had a kind of crazy day, broken up by meetings with stretches barely long enough to get any of my writing done. Hence, my Morning Pages became Evening Pages, especially since I started meetings early this morning.
After reading some today, in literally a few spare minutes, about the Standing Rock protest by the Sioux water protectors and their supporters — I hope they count me as one — and reading about senseless ambush shootings of police officers and the ignorance and uncouth brashness of our president-elect, my Heart demanded that I offer something to help.
Even though I haven’t accomplished all my goals today, I still have accomplished part of them, helping me to feel fulfilled and significant. Am I as far as I wanted to be? Obviously, I am not. My only goal at this point is that I offer you something, even one question, thought, comment that will help you connect for even a minute or two with your own Heart, and maybe you will experience some fullness and significance, even in the face of troubled times.
And because that is my wish, I thought it might be supportive to put my 10 Steps in the process of awakening in one place. I know this will not be the final form in my ebook, but at 11:00 p.m., this isn’t ebook quality. It’s just life, and it feels good. So I give you the list below with the hope you will see the power, peace, purpose, acceptance, and love available to you in awakening to Self. I also hope you see that the sorts of turmoil we face could be ameliorated by masses of individuals coming to such a life point. (The list below is mostly a copy from my Evening (Morning) Pages).
The 10 Steps in Awakening
Enjoy the work of the journey. It’s worth it. Blessings!
