You know the old saying “to be in this world but not of this world,” is often misquoted as a bible verse however it’s not ironically. It is applicable though to our daily experiences, the continuing dramas we become immersed in taking over all perspectives and viewpoints. When we become so entangled in the story we forget the larger picture, “to be not of this world.” We are definitely then “in this world” rather than distancing ourselves from the illusions we assume are our forever reality.
My go-to place is literally the top of a mountain, in my mind and physically. It keeps me balanced and honestly more intuitive. I realized over the last month of too much food and fantastic wine, activities and family fun, I had become immersed in the day to day story, rather like an ant’s perspective of life versus an eagle’s, not “going to my meditative-mind-mountain.” All the gluttony of chocolate and chips, wine and wine, made me feel dense and heavy. Definitely not cosmic and intuned. I was “in this world” literally.
I know uneqivically this is what happens to all of us. Between lower vibrational foods, alcohol and sorry yes even cannabis, and every other freaking drug, these indulgences lower our abilities to be more in touch with the amazing world and universe we reside in, not too mention distancing ourselves from emotional self reflection and deftness in staying out of the drama, choosing to be a sideline character rather than the star. (And yes, if you’re in pain or learning through disease then cannabis is a marvelous choice. I am an advocate for this alternative healing modality. Totally different choices.)
Most don’t truly understand the fuel we put into our bodies can make us purr like a Lamborghini or sputter and choke like a Pinto. Foods vibrate. We vibrate. The key is finding what is best for our personal vibrations and doesn’t lower or impinge them. We literally have the ability to live twice as long if we made different choices, our bodies are hardwired that way, however we are buried in limiting contrary beliefs.
Please think consciously. Everyday. To change the world we have to be the change. My repeating mantra. “Be in this world but not of it.” Climb that mountain and find a better view, a clearer perspective. Sit by water. See the symbolism in everything.
To a fabulous 2019.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
