Take a change challenge, setting a goal to make one small change in your life every day. Perhaps today you will smile, tomorrow take a walk, the next day meditate for five minutes, the day after that begin something you have longed to do. Change happens naturally all the time, but real personal change only happens if you instigate it, if you make it happen. And once you do that other things will begin to happen. If you want change to happen in your life, do one thing to set the ball rolling. You won’t regret it. In fact, it will most likely be the one thing that could change your life. And who doesn’t want to change something. One step is all it takes. Make a change today, and don’t forget to smile!

Chuck’s Place: Awe Over ARMAGEDDON

What’s next? Volcano, new dawn, or both?

As if regressing America to its glory days of industrial giants and fossil fuels weren’t enough, we now have England being spurred to reinstate the dominance of the British Empire. Thank you, Hindu science, for the framework of Kali Yuga as a rational framework with which to understand this fantastical end of an era.

Never underestimate the value of a psychological defense. Of course, defenses obscure reality, but they do provide a perch to rest some cohesion of self upon, especially as we absorb the impact of the meteor of now.

In shamanic nomenclature, we are all experiencing a blow to the world assemblage point, that collective agreement that has for so long provided us with the consensus reality we have known as our world. The impact, however, is not Armageddon, unless one chooses that interpretation. The alternative is to choose awe in the face of sheer magic.

Indeed, the fanciful tricksters in charge now are the circus sideshow performers that incite and attempt to fixate our attention with their boastful charades, but they are not the main event. True, they have some hypnotic powers to peddle their versions of a new assemblage of reality, but their efforts are really just fleeting distractions.

The main event is Nature herself, as she rapidly reshapes the face of the Earth. Denial is one masterful defense. Indulge it while you can, but its foothold is shaking in its boots. At its core, even the human animal senses the mighty changes afoot.

The gift of now is the opportunity for fulfillment in this time of completion, for that is what we are dealing with now, the completion of one cycle before the beginning of the next. As our illusions shatter, the shadow comes to light. Who really could deny that the dark side of the shadow is having its day? But enough of that, it’s actually becoming boring.

Indeed, all must face the suppressed, the repressed, and the fullness of the unknown and unloved self. Nature, in her fullness, demonstrates the way now: from the sunlight of the day to the darkness of the night, it’s time to accept and integrate the dark side of the moon. That which creates also destroys. Without destruction we’d be stuck, replaying Shangri-La forever.

On the other hand, can we face and realize the golden side of our own shadow? The energy of now, in this time of completion, is shattering the limiting beliefs that have held us back from truly growing into the fullness of our beautiful selves.

Fear, doubt, shame, and inertia have provided safe places in our old world habitat, but the new world we are entering is a world governed by the magic of intent. Intend it and it will be so. Intend to realize the fullness of you and allow the energy of now to shape and materialize that dream.

Don’t be fooled by the destruction of now. Without clay, the potter’s wheel cannot throw us a bowl. Our Earth is simply spinning and reformatting its clay. Our intent is the architectural blueprint for our place in the coming new world.

Do your part. Keep it simple. Take full advantage of the gift of now. Face and reconcile with your personal darkness, then allow yourself to become your golden loving self, fulfilled to the brim.

It truly is all about intent. Intend awe over Armageddon!

Keep upon your path of change, your path of heart, no matter what comes to thwart your progress, even if you feel you have made a mistake. In truth, there are no mistakes upon a path of heart, for it is the intent of the heart that is the driving force and that does not change if it is the heart’s true intent. And thus there are really no wrong choices, only choices that challenge, choices that confront, choices that ask you to make another new decision that will move you onward, one day and one step at a time, having learned from your previous day’s decisions. If you have made a decision, it must be the right one, so deal with it; use it to your full advantage to keep you focused upon your path of heart. And don’t forget, a path of heart is a loving path, a path of kindness and compassion, and so utilize all of its characteristics for your own good. For who matters more than you upon your path of heart? Accept that learning too is the intent of a path of heart. Every day is another day to learn something new.

Soulbyte for Monday July 29, 2019

Get in alignment with your body, your companion vehicle through life, the home of your Soul. Listen to what it has to tell you. Your body has its own means of survival, not the least of which your Soul has access to, though your mind may not. Sit quietly and speak to your body in a serious manner so that it knows you are serious too. Find your way to taking better care of it, naturally, and with your Soul guiding the process allow for better balance inside the wonderful machine that is you, body and Soul humming along. Ask your body how to do this and it will tell you in the most natural way, as only a body can, pain being its loudest language. Pain, whether mental or physical, is your body trying to tell you something. What does it mean? Only you can find the answer, and only you can do something about it that is in alignment with your Soul. Listen, pay attention, and react in a manner that is right for you, body and Soul.
