Nothing to Fear

There is nothing to fear
The opposite side of the one 
you hide behind,
Is always there
Just open your eyes,
Look and see
See the whole
All that is
See all there is to see,
Even in the darkness
The light is shining bright
Even at the lowest
There is the highest of heights
Embrace the wholeness;
There is no need to hide 💗

The one that came to see

The one that came to see
That which no one could before
All beyond the visible,
Their eyes would view instantly

Belief beyond the fore
Taking time to find much more
When searching deep inside,
Where all would come to rise;
Right before their very eyes

Calling invisible to visible,
Finding what’s inside
Where all came to rise;
In the beautiful brightness of the skies
💕

Great mentors and teachers ❤️

‘Better than a thousand days of study is one day with a great teacher.’ ~ Japanese Proverb

This post is dedicated to the loving memory of Sigung Richard Bustillo who passed away peacefully in the early hours of this morning

I’ve been fortunate enough in my life to have been blessed with some really great teachers, ones who’ve not only taught me how to improve my external world but often more importantly my inner world.

I treasure every single teacher and mentor I have and have ever had because I recognise the value that they bring to my life. In how they have helped me see things differently and achieve things I may never have otherwise achieved

Without great teachers we can never grow to become the person we really want to be and understand things we may have never otherwise understood.

The value of great teachers can really be underestimated and all of us can benefit from a great teacher because we are always learning.

As the Japanese proverb states even just one day spent with a great teacher can be immensely powerful.

I’d like to dedicate this post to loving memory of one great teacher, Sigung Richard Bustillo a teacher who I spent a truly valuable weekend training with last year.

Richard Bustillo was a student and personal friend of Bruce Lee and also a teacher of Bruce Lee’s own art of Jeet Kune Do.

To be able to train with Richard Bustillo last year was a true gift and a time I will never forget; his spirit, energy and teachings inspired me greatly. I will always remember those treasured days in 2016 and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to be taught by him.

RIP Richard Bustillo ❤️

Being Empowered

At certain times in life we can reach a point where we feel powerless; powerless to that which is happening either directly to us or around us.
At these times however real it may feel, this feeling of powerlessness is an illusion.

We always have power

Why?

Because we always have choice – no matter what the situation or circumstance,
We have the most important choice

That of how we show up.

So how can we go from feeing powerless to being empowered

1.) In how we choose to be
2.) In how we choose to focus
3.) In what we choose to do

Ultimately it is the energy we choose to bring to any situation.

And this energy is the most powerful thing that we have – we choose what we bring to any circumstance and through doing so we create a ripple effect. We can choose the effect we wish to create and from here help those around us too.

With us all being energy, we are never powerless, we are creative beings, giving power to that which we choose through our own awareness. We all can make and create a difference within this world, starting with ourselves. We get to choose how, and in doing this we will influence others too.

Whether winter or summer
You still have a choice
Even though it may not feel that way,
You always power
You always have a voice 💗

The most important thing to realise is our power lies within us, not outside of us. So if ever your feeling powerless, come back to this truth, it’s from here we create change in our lives to begin with. Know that it is always you who decides how you show up today, on what you choose to focus on and on the energy you wish to create for your life and those around you.

As Gandhi so famously stated;

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”

It starts with us. Create from within and stay in charge. 💗

Order and Flow

Each thing or being is created unique and whole as it is in its truth and oneness. Therefore to resist or reject any part of it in any moment of the journey is to reject the self and also the whole, resulting in a sense of disharmony.

How then to maintain some order and unity in the process of natural flow? As we are a thinking/ meaning creating being the only way I have truly found is through Faith. This I believe is because we can so often be caught up in having to do or be in a certain way, in a world of comparison or duality which in reality is just concepts. All is simply choice. Therefore we choose which way to follow and flow through the direction of our intention.

We are all created unique and will therefore follow a unique path, this is not necessarily set but directed through our own personal intention and experience and ultimately the meaning applied to it. With the capacity of higher consciousness and awareness then order can be both a natural flow and one with an intention applied to it along with Faith.

Without Faith, disunity and resistance can occur. With faith you apply your own internal creative ability in harmony with the external to create a natural flow towards your goal.

The faith then allows it to happen. Without either faith or some external order applied then things do still happen as a natural occurrence but are not directed towards a specific end as well as they may be otherwise. So it is then the blend of the two that create a natural harmony and balance towards achieving your goal.

“Direct intention and yet have faith you will be guided towards your goal, there you will flow as naturally as does occur with all nature in its growth.”

Trusting in your Intutition

Trusting in our intuition is something we often hear of and how important and useful it is for successful results. The challenge I often found was how do we know what is our intuition or what instead is fear of the unknown.

This has been a journey of realisation for me and I have found one of the most important things is to recognise your intuition (being within you)  is very personal to you and your experience in how you learn to follow it.

With me it has taken me several times in ignoring it and then realising that I would have been better having followed it to realise the truth within. Since having learnt to follow it more things in my life are flowing far easier in the direction I want to go, not only that but I feel happier and  more at ease  in myself.

Following our intuition more often than not seems to involve going against what may appear the sensible thing and sometimes the thing we want to do, and in following it there can be some fear due to the unknown beyond it. Yet if we never step in to the unknown we may never experience anything other than where we have already been, we may never be able to experience that which we are seeking or create new possibilities and achieve our dreams.

If this is something you can relate to then from my experience I would say always trust your intuition, whenever I have not listened to my intuition it has only led me in to pain or struggle. Your heart always knows and it can very much be a head vs heart thing where it can take a while to learn to trust in your heart over your head and it does take courage, but I  know I will now always be drawn to do so and I  hope so for you too. ❤

In my words I would term it like this;

Follow your heart, it leads you to the unknown, where there are gifts you would never otherwise know.

Or as the great Steve Jobs said;

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you want to become.
