Yoga Mat Reincarnated

7 Comments


When your once well revered yoga mat used for 17+ years in a dedicated & masterful EFFORT to relax & quiet the mind suddenly reincarnates into a  cushiony object for your knees while planting a flower garden, its probable that YOU ARE AWAKE !

~ Other observations indicating wide awake-ness/awareness :

  • You catch a friend blatantly lying to you and you smile in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
  • Your partner comes home from work to find two hideous, one hundred pound columns installed by the gas company in the newly paved driveway, in full reaction mode he removes the beams, and you simply watch quietly in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
  • Money in your checking account is dwindling; your savings account is gone; you have been technically unemployed since November 2011 except for the occasional odd job, yet there is NO FEAR present inside you, NO FEAR as to how you will continue paying your bills because you are in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
  • You travel 1300 miles back to your parents home, to stay for a week and completely enjoy yourself with out distress or negative reaction of any kind because you are in full acceptance that it is all just happening.

So far these are the most immediate observations and Kate is still nowhere to be found.  All the reacting has ceased. All the fears and anxieties have dissolved. All the judgment, blame, resentment, and opinions have simply disappeared. No more resistance, no more needing or desiring to control actions or outcomes. And most notably, as living a liberated life happens, the view is crisper, cleaner, warmer, and filled with endless space.

Occasionally I look in the mirror checking to see:  “Am I still here?  Did I some how endure a head injury and just forgot it happened? Did the alien ship finally arrive and I am now just a host for some extraterrestrial? ”

Nope!

Every moment I attempt to test and look for loopholes. Every moment I pull back the curtain to check for the wizard, and so far the only discovery made is this…

THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE A LIBERATED LIFE.

ITS ALL JUST HAPPENING! 🙂

  1. Btw, forgot to put this in the post…

    “If you want to find out how awake/enlightened you are, try hanging out with your parents for a week.” Eckart Tolle

    ~Though my recent trip home to Florida was not made solely to test Kate’s enlightenment, it was however astounding maintain an unattached observation to all that arose. 😀

  2. You are welcome–you are fun to follow. Having been there-done that and still there, doing that, it’s also sweet to read that I am not the only one with a head injury this severe. 🙂

  3. Thanks for such inspiring and thought provoking post. I love the phrase that you have attached to living a liberated life: “It is all just happening.” I am going to practice this when I lose my grounding, I will repeat this phrase along with telling myself I am safe.

    • Yes, yes, and yes! all lose ground, all are always safe.. only mind is sneaky and tries to trick us to believe otherwise…
      much love & happiness to you always! ♥ ♥ 😀
