To be aLive and to Enjoy ourselves is our true nature

As awareness of mankind's history narrates to us, not everything there is to be realized, will be realized, at least with my human mind, in this lifetime. Therefore, let me live...and live...and Live...and enjoy...enjoy...Enjoy. An ecclesiastical "no more chasing after the wind" & simply put, enjoyment of life, for this is a gift of ours to embrace. The world collectively at once thought the world was flat. They had no means to traverse beyond the vast expanse of darkness over the horizon of the windy seas. Can you imagine how scary that was? Once the means became available, still, a boat, a ship, it was still scary to travel over the ocean. Can you imagine voyaging out when everyone you knew believed the world was flat? Something in your heart, feeling inclined to discover the truth of what you already know--that there is something beyond this idea of flatness. Something about it thrills you, knows you, brings you alive. You follow your bliss, your dreams, what you...Know. While the whisperings of collective doubt turn into just that...mere whisperings...those who doubt, naysay, and even rehearsing well-intended & verbose stoppage case and give rise to curiosity as they realize your courage may discover something they, too, are now suspecting. Naysaying, well-intended (or not) contrast only builds your resilience, your faith muscle, honing your focus, your determination. Does God create the world in 6 days and then run away because he fears one man or woman's, or circumstance's, contrast? No. Contrast is part of the creation. Contrast is beautiful. Everything is beautiful and timely if you allow yourself to be open to the perception of it.

"Feel the Balance and Perfection of Your Environment
So, the contrast causes new desire to be born within you. The new desire radiates from you, and as you offer the vibration of your new desire, that desire is answered. Every time. When you ask, it is given.

Now think about the perfection of this process: Continuing new ideas for the improvement of your experience emanate from you constantly, and are answered constantly."

"Since Every Request Is Granted, There Is No Competition
Each point of view matters; every request is granted; and as this amazing Universe unerringly expands, there is no end to the Universal resources that fulfill these requests. And there is no end to the answers to the never-ending stream of questions-and for that reason, there is no competition.

It is not possible for someone else to receive the resources that were meant for you, and you cannot selfishly squander resources that were intended for someone else. All desires are answered; all requests are granted, and no one is left unanswered, unloved, or unfulfilled. When you stay aligned with your Energy Stream, you always win, and somebody else does not have to lose for you to win. There is always enough."

Enjoy You. Embrace courage to feel, taste, experience the exhilaration of relaxing into & discovering, moment by moment, feeling by feeling, the Essence of who You are.

Feel, taste, experience the exhilaration of courage to relax into & discover, moment by moment, feeling by feeling, the essence of You...& Enjoy ~ * Your very own source of well-being is you and naturally ever present. What do you believe today?

"You Will Never Get There, So Enjoy Your Journey
Once you consciously observe, from your own creative perspective, how each new achievement leads to another new desire, you will begin to personally understand your part in this expansive Universe. And, in time, you will come to remember that you never get it done because you never cease your awareness of the contrast out of which is always born a new idea or desire. The entire Universe is established in that way. And as you begin to relax into the idea that you are an eternal Being, that your desires will never cease to flow, and that any desire that is born has the power within it to attract (by Law of Attraction) all that is necessary for the expansion and fulfillment of itself, then you may remember the immense Well-Being upon which this Universe is established. And, you may then relax into the eternal nature of your own Being. It is then that you will begin to enjoy your journey.

If your goal is to, finally, once and for all, achieve all that you desire, you will find yourself unable to ever fulfill that goal, for the expanding nature of this Universe defies that idea. You cannot ever get it done because you cannot ever cease to be, and neither can you ever halt your awareness. Yet, out of your awareness will always be born another asking, and each asking always summons another answering.

Your eternal nature is one of expansion-and in that expansion is the potential for unspeakable joy." -Abraham-Hicks http://www.abraham-hicks.com/lawofattractionsource/askitisgiven_chapter_16.php

Full circle! Sat-chit-ananda! Namaste & love to you, Joseph Campbell:

Now, I came to this idea of bliss because in Sanskrit, which is the great spiritual language of the world, there are three terms that represent the brink, the jumping-off place to the ocean of transcendence: sat-chit-ananda. The word "Sat" means being. "Chit" means consciousness. "Ananda" means bliss or rapture. I thought, "I don't know whether my consciousness is proper consciousness or not; I don't know whether what I know of my being is my proper being or not; but I do know where my rapture is. So let me hang on to rapture, and that will bring me both my consciousness and my being." I think it worked.
   -- Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth, pp. 113, 120

"Wherever you are -- if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time." --Joseph Campbell Tori Smith this one is dedicated, with Love, to you dear Sunshine & OJ!)

Ecclesiastes 3:12 etc. ~ *

"I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live."

"All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return"

"Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?""

"So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?"

"I told her, 'I don’t want to study what’s wrong with people. I want to study what’s right...When we realize who we are, when we find our highest selves, there are no limits'" -- Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

From Dr. Wayne Dyer's blog (Namaste Dr. Dyer!) ~ *

"There I read an essay by Abraham Maslow called “The Whole Man.” Maslow argued that instead of spending time investigating the behavior and treatment of the most troubled and dysfunctional people, psychologists should take a new tack and study the lives and habits of the self-actualized person. “The study of self-actualized people must be the source of a whole new universal science of psychology,” said Maslow. He had observed a small percentage of people who appeared to live at an exalted level of consciousness—the self-actualized.
By that night when I met with my advisor and mentor Dr. Mildred Peters at Wayne State, I had completely changed my plans for doctoral study. I told her, “I don’t want to study what’s wrong with people. I want to study what’s right.” The only difference I had with Maslow was the idea that only a small percentage of humans were capable of becoming self-actualized. If one person can do it, I thought, then why can’t everyone do it? And so began my course of study into how lives can be made better through self-awareness. When we realize who we are, when we find our highest selves, there are no limits."
