Wearing the world just as a loose garment ......

Post by daze7 on Fri Aug 21, 2009 9:51 pm

I came across this (again) in a book I picked up this morning - that I haven't had a look at for a while - and thought it might just help someone today (including me!). It comes from a book called 'Life is Huge' by Susan Jeffers (of 'Feel the Fear and do it Anyway' fame).

When I'm in a 'good' space I like the concept of 'wearing the world just as a loose garment' instead of struggling to make it all different than the way it is. Somehow those words make me drop my shoulders and let some tension go.

falling away from us
ideas that weigh heavily on the mind.
disallowing us to fly like angels sky high
and to land again safely.

remember,
you are not your mind....you were here before you were borned,
just the way it is,without the Names which the mind puts on it.
Throw off the shackles and chains
and dance free
naked again.

interesting comment gm. "You are not your mind". I am of the view that we are many things, that come from our soul, but also our mind. So when we look to see who we are, do we not look to both??

Pam,
my love.

when we look to see who we are, we do so because we have forgotten.
One dosnt have to seek or search for themselves
when they Know.
With regards the many millions of things of the mind and the Soul;We Are all these things also,
you will find,seeking.
That is the way things are.

Prior to Birthing and BEING CALLED NAMES.....
we learnt to recognise the One our parents chose for us.
Prior to birth
we were without name,
Complete in SOUL
which already knows all,including the Nothing,all creation comes out of!

thinking about you daze....

Some days
life is like wearing flypaper and being weighed down
Hanging from the Ceiling is exhausting.
Be footless and headless
fancy free!

somedays the fly,
somedays the paper.
Then, all of a sudden,
as though someone flicks-on a switch
we catch a glimpse of life outside the mind, Aha!
If we were taught HOW-TO think rather than remebering at schools
it would be a helpful thing.

why can I not 'lurk' with you
in public Pam?

We do so intimately, by breathing the same air dont we?

Bliss bubbles-up freely when we allow our minds
the freedom they so desire!
Where there is no Bliss
some slob is inevitably sitting
on the hatch.

Awww GM sweet, of course you can lurk honey, didn't mean it like that, was just worried your head may just swell when I was calling you very wise, but wise you are. Take care, Pam.

I don't think I could strut naked, to many wobbly bits!!

But the garmet is slowly allowing me to breathe, so I guess that is a step in the right direction.

Yes, life is a mystery.

hmmm crochet... not something I would wear, the bits would still be visable and wobbly, much like my mind is at the moment...

I just like breathing really,, and unobstructed breathing would be nice
