What if that which you were holding on to,
Or resisting against,
Was never real anyway
And if you were to simply let go
That is how you would fly 💕
~ M. L Adams
Expressing life's journeys in writing and poetry
All along when I thought that you were lost
You were here,
With me all along
I kept searching
Hoping to find you somewhere,
When all along;
You had never disappeared
You were here, shining as always
Yet I kept looking for what I never could see,
Then I realised; that this shining beautiful jewel,
Was always here; right within me 💗
~ M. L Adams
A persons behaviour or pattern of being is never fixed,
To place this limit on another is to place it on oneself,
To realise this is to realise a deeper truth,
That where you come from is the ultimate You,
And all that you are here, is that which you choose 🙏
– M. L Adams
After practicing Jeet Kune Do for the last 3 months I’ve found myself having some philosophical insights and reflections after classes, so I’ve decided to add this as a regular topic on my blog in hope these insights may also be of some inspiration to you.
The following is my latest insight, please do share your thoughts and comments too. Thank you. 🙏
Detatchment and Attachment
Ultimately it’s about detachment, in detachment you have conscious awareness and control. You are able to direct your energy where it is you choose to go.
Find and attach as you need and is right to do, at the right timing and then let go.
You are your own unit of conscious energy, learn and trust in your directing of it. Only then can you be equally aware of where others are and what they are doing.
In order to not be directed, you need to be detached in the sense that you are the observer – to direct, you need to be in control, in charge of where you are at all times, always- knowing.
From here you are really in a position to guide and teach others because you can see all and be all- you can adapt, direct & let go.
This is full awareness from the ultimate whole – it sees all – it’s not in a fixed position – it flows, it adapts. Be like water therefore, don’t attach, be the flow, always moving, flowing, adapting and changing. Always letting go.
In letting go you find new things, new ways- you open your mind. You are never fixed or stuck but always moving as you need to, just like water.
Sometimes you may direct and sometimes you are directed, sometimes it is still and balanced but it is never fixed. Everything changes and has to change otherwise it does not grow.
Water within is always centred but it adapts as it needs to- to the environment- to the one it’s with. To learn, grow and move, it adapts, it follows. Only then may it rise and as it’s stronger it can guide rather than be guided.
Trust within that you do and will adapt and flow just as you need to do, that your energy is one, always is and always will be. Therefore use your mind, trust with feeling that wherever you go is the right way, as you are always learning.
“Give up thinking as though not giving it up. Observe the techniques as though not observing.” ~ Bruce Lee
There is no purely 'bad' or even 'good' state or situation, all that is is what you make of it. Because ultimately it is you that decides which course to take out of each moment, no matter what it is that happens.
Each of us has the strength and wisdom within us to turn any situation around and to see the beauty that exists within and all around us. No matter how your situation may be perceived by others, it is you that has the wisdom to decide.
It always comes down to our choices, what do we choose to see, what actions do we choose to take and with the right wisdom, courage and compassion, in trusting the path that you are on; you can be sure that it is the right one.
– Make today beautiful –
Today has been an amazing new years day, looking forward to new goals and beginnings whilst continuing on projects over from last year too. I always love new year because of the energy everyone has with the potential of what we can be and become.
It brings alive the field of possibility in knowing that we can change habits we no longer need and become all we want to be, it’s often just maintaining this energy that can be the challenge.
That’s why I believe its so important to have this focus of what is possible consistently, to always be searching for new ideas and opportunities. To treat every day as if it is a new beginning just as we do at this time, because really it is. Everyday and every moment is a new beginning and anything is possible when our view expands enough to see all that is available to us.
The only thing that ever limits us is ourselves and our view of what is possible for us to do and when we focus daily on something that we may not have perceived possible, who knows what opportunities will come our way. I was a little disappointed at the end of 2014 that I had not achieved all I would like to have done but at the same time I know I have learnt so much. For all that is important as part of my journey and I achieved and experienced things that I never could have planned.
Most importantly from 2014 I learnt;
New learning as well as achievements are all part of our journey of growth and the beauty in life, we never can fully plan everything. We can however be sure that when we go with the flow towards our goals we will be heading in the right direction.
‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho is a perfect example of this, and in the end it is always about realising our potential and surprising ourselves with possibilities we never knew we could find.
I’m determined even more this year to be open to all new possibilities and opportunities whilst on the journey to achieving my goals which is why this year pubic speaking and any opportunities in this area will be a big part of my goal. Please watch this space for video uploads 🙂 I wish you all the best success and lots of wonderful opportunities on your journey this year too. Happy New Year to you 🙂 Lets make this year amazing.
There is no end, only beginnings,
Every moment, is a new beginning
