Today I'm cheating a bit and using the same picture twice. But it is to make a point, honest!
The last post I talked a bit about the fear that my dog Freedom still lives with. It's hard to watch him hurt himself, often literally, because he crashes through things or pulls away or runs... There have been some really scary moment!
But what is more cool to see is his trust in me grow and who "I AM" to him.
On our morning walks there are all kinds of pointy things that get stuck in his feet. How he can keep walking is beyond me. One touch of a burr/goatshead/sticker (the name seems to depend on where you live?) and I scream, well curse....
But if he can't get it out himself from his paw, he has learned he just needs to hold it up and I will help him. I AM someone he is learning to trust. That is an awesome feeling.
That cactus is just one of the things that lies hiding in wait for us to walk by.
There is probably no phrase that is more powerful or less intentionally used than, "I AM ___." You fill in the blank.
In a Universe that creates by what we think I know I seem to live in a world that rarely chooses to pay attention to what I say, much less my thoughts.
But I do think about the fact I should think about what I think - more, and then do better. But it is weird and let's face it, feels like a free pass if we're not really paying attention!
When I took the picture of Freedom I didn't think anything about it. When i edited it a bit, I thought one thing. When I used it yesterday, I did so in direct opposition (about fear) from what I felt making it - which was the energy of freedom.
This is much more of what I had in mind!
I love it because it speaks to the literal truth - after all, that is Freedom! And the Spiritual Truth - that I AM Freedom!
Just the thought for the day - which I will admit came easier as FINALLY we are having a moment of No Wind or Clouds - just stillness and Sunshine... Thank Goodness!!!
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
