Living from a Deep Place
'What an amazing opportunity is LIFE. Through the impulse of creativity, passion and curiosity, the ancient Intelligence of the Universe weaves its genetic patterns to form a new human being.
Prior to our incarnation we are in the unbounded infinite void and through the amazing synchronistic events of biology, we manifest as an individual. Although we did not have attachment, intention or desire that we are conscious of prior to becoming embodied, once we do, we begin to manifest the desires to maintain our boundaries, manifest our intentions, and experience the world of form and phenomenon. At times this engagement in the world of the material and emotional can be exhilarating, and at other times it can create distress. The challenge and the opportunity of living from a deep place is to enjoy the inevitable ride of life without ever losing our connection to the celebration that gave birth to this experience.
As I am moving through my process of expanding my sense of Self from personal to collective to Universal, I am recognising how all the challenges that seemed important in the past and all the concerns that we can activate about the future are simply the play and display of the creative Intelligence playing hide-and-seek with itself.
As I share my journey with you, I hope that you, too, will take time on a daily basis to recognise, rejoice, and experience gratitude for this unlikely opportunity to have a human conscious incarnation. If there’s something in your life that you believe is not serving you - perhaps a relationship that is not nurturing, maybe a job that you feel stifled in, a pattern of behavior that is not creating emotional or physical wellbeing, I encourage you to know that you have the full capacity and the right to make the changes that will enliven your awareness, raise the succulent joy in your heart and allow you to experience the vitality that comes from living in balance with your environment.'
