10 Deer or Hand, Thursday 30 September 2010
Today is all about holding on. What does that mean to you today?
What do you need to hold onto?
Each moment has the potential to grip us; each period of our life is a manifestation of our multiplicity. Each moment offers us the chance to feel totally free and empty, where this total freedom is mostly transcendental. Quite often in our lives we are desiring and wanting - this is an existential fact of engaging with life, rather than an error. Most people, most of the time, want more - more freedom, sex, love, romance, excitement, adventure, freedom again, money, self-expression, recognition, privacy, or at least some of those. This is not wrong, it is just an existential fact.
Today, hold the moment lightly, knowing all is well and, yes, you really do want to live life more freely and yet more magnificently. Wanting creates attachment, so we have this paradox within us all - wanting freedom and yet wanting more in life. The mind cannot handle the paradox, but somewhere in the heart and the psyche is the capability to create open structures - conduits.
Are you gripped by life? Are you gripped by the divine restlessness?
Hold on to something today and yet allow your energy to flow through the centre.
A good day for controlling aspects of your life in a positive way.
