The world is evolving at unprecedented levels; it is difficult to keep up with technology and the digital world, have time for family and friends and stay healthy. The job market is tenuous, people are having to relocate, explore different paths, expect less pay while expenses continually rise. It’s a wild ride. What can we do to compensate, initiate, and be on top of our game?
A fabulous analogy is through the changes in the sporting world over the past century. Duke Kahanamoku, the Hawaiian Olympic swimmer, spread the sport of surfing around the world in the 19- teens, made a long board of pine which is still on display in southern California. He was literally half the size of the board. Incredible the agility of this fine Olympic athlete on a board of this magnitude and size.
Move forward to the new sport of ‘sandsurfing’. Boards are small, sometimes just a bit larger than a skate board. It is now an official extreme sport resurrected in 2006. This is the analogy for the new paradigm. We are comfortable surfing on large safe boards, double our size for stability and safety. We are having to adjust to surf-skating on a skateboard-size-board in the span of a few short years; this isn’t an easy transition.
Holding the image in your mind of flexibility, dexterity and maneuverability creates a firm focus of the new expectations of the frequencies we are evolving into as we progress through 2012 and beyond. We have to be willing to shift, change at a moment’s notice, be spontaneous and alert. In addition we have to truly and deeply create the link between our head (for fast, smart, intelligent, quick responses) to our heart (true desires, needs and loves) for the best possible path to unfold before our eyes.
This is what we are learning; we can create our own perfect wave or sand dune before our eyes if we stay completely clear in the present moment. On the sandboard, if we are not fully alert presently, we will crash and burn with sand in every orifice. In those moments where self doubt arises, road blocks take precedence, remember you are on your board of flexibility, maneuverability and dexterity. You have the ability to dart and dash and stay true to yourself; listen to your heart and be mindful of your head. It’s in the combo-dance all things are possible.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
