Inspired by Melting Conditions on Anita Dawes & Jane Marie ~ Authors site And having butterflies on the mind from Emerge on Michael Steven Wills Photography site over the recent days. Plus, there’s a corresponding foundation here in a quote that Theresa of Soul Gatherings posted with this quote:
Each day comes bearing its own gifts.~ Ruth Ann Schabacker ~
Untie the ribbons.
Butterfly At Rest
When the temperatures rise so to speak, I envision, “Trees with strong roots laugh at storms. ~ Malay Proverb,” and in Empathic Silence weather and adapt and adjust ever so slightly. And, when it gets TOO hot, like in weather temperature. I drink a cayenne-infused tea or eat a jalapeño. It jump-starts my body to sweat, and my natural cooling system with the evaporation of that gets a corresponding jump-start. So, heat with heat.
Rather than battling it, I sync up and join it. I don’t join it to make it go away. I join it to enhance and reinforce and strengthen me getting back to punching the keys and writing and living from a wholly new and experiential place. Nature can inform our mode this way, or of course can be ignored and instead drown in the intensities, or simply be miserable and sit there and Ghandi it out… or whine and moan and bitch so we feel like we’re at least dong something. Why always do something? What about rest AS doing something? The refuel and re-tune of rest, of meditation, of Mindfulness… of simply the experience immersed in and with long-form Master Violinist Bow Bindu Breaths. That is an action as well.
This mode of sync, to find and abduce or draw out or discover messages of workability, especially in intense situations/experiences, comes from my concept of, Don’t waste trouble. It certainly does suck intensely at times. Though, especially in times that try us to the brink, I find that when I take this route, the gifts of messages are felt and seen more clearly in very usable ways. Each experience births a discovery. As one unties the ribbons of each experience and opens, potential treasures, gifts rise up into and with and directly from the intensities. And,
Beautifully Both-And, the pulse of the beat of the heart of the matter becomes clearly evident Becomes as clearly evident intensely as intensely as a tiger eating, though more like a butterfly, on a flower, at rest. Amen/Awomen/Aeveryone-in-between. All, each, ourself.
