Rituals & Practices:
Looking into Nature – Finding our Selves
Is it possible that through time we have gotten the wrong message about Life? Could it be that nature has given us clues and messages that signify the ever-evolving magnificence of all of life? Patterns that yield beauty and success that does not have to forced and manipulated? Einstein reminds us to: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” And nature shows us that everything is built upon beautiful, repeating and perfect patterns. The cells in a beehive, the swirls in a nautilus shell, the rows of sunflower seeds forming in the sunflower, patterns and ratios as sure as the sun rising and setting. The Fibonacci sequence, also known as the Golden Ratio, (phi=1.61803…), has been a source of inspiration to scientists, mathematicians, and artists alike for centuries. Its omnipresence throughout the micro and macro world of both biological and inanimate objects affirms its importance as a fundamental characteristic of the Universe.
Rituals & Practices can re-Mind and re-Connect us to the natural order of the Universe. They assist us in the uprooting of old patterns, born of mistaken thinking and fear. They serve to bring us into greater awareness and affirm our Oneness with all of life.
The Seven Paths of Peace is a ritual that builds upon itself, one step at a time.
It provides a progressive movement into the Field of Infinite Potentiality; supporting your transformation and building a foundation on the fundamental principles of the Universe. It anchors the pieces, re-circuiting the left hemisphere of your brain, the serial processor, and gently bringing it into the Oneness reality that your right hemisphere experiences. Like the cells of the hive, you will be building a Golden Bridge into your Self. This is not a kicking and screaming movement, rather a peaceful glide into Reality.
It all begins with Trusting the fundamental order and perfection of the Universe, an order and perfection that is built into your very biology. Bringing your thinking mind into agreement, that is your journey. While your current circumstances may not appear to support you, enliven you, nourish you; they are, in fact, what have awakened you to another way. They are the contrast that has opened your eyes and invited a change. And for that, you may feel gratitude and eagerness.
Join me on the Seven Paths of Peace. From this vantage point, life is truly Joy-filled and creates the spirit of enthusiasm that supports our becoming fully. Like the child in the candy store window; we excitedly anticipate, with an open heart and Mind, the Field of Infinite Potential in which we live.
Week I All is Well
As you undertake this adventure, and it is an adventure, you may need to face yourself squarely, perhaps even in the mirror, and announce that this is the beginning of a journey that you are choosing.
In his book, Breaking the habit of Being Yourself, Dr. Joe Dispense tells us that,
“The latest research supports the notion that we have a natural ability to change the brain and body by thought alone, so that it looks biologically like some future event has already happened. Because you can make thought more real than anything else, you can change who you are from brain cell to gene, given the right understanding.”
Despite anything that might be facing you, you are going to focus on one thing and one thing only each morning, as you follow the The Seven Paths of Peace. You are going to focus on the simple fact, that All is Well. You are going to focus these words with an inquisitive Mind that you will task with “see”ing that All, is indeed, Well in your life. Are you breathing? Is your heart beating? Did the sun rise? Is the Earth still spinning an amazing 1040 miles per hour, even though you would swear that you are standing absolutely still? Appearances can be deceiving, so take this breath and release all of the entanglements and simply give yourself the opportunity to feel, that on the very deepest levels of your Being and of this Universe…All is Well!
