ANCIENT WISDOM IN OUR CELLS
One of the Original names of Ancient Lomi Lomi, is 'Ke Ala Hoku — Pathway to the Stars'. This sacred work guides us beyond our known perceptions, beyond the identity we hold in our daily life, and into the realm of 'The Infinite' living inside our very cells. It guides us to the Source: both the Source of our perceptions formed from the limiting ideas we've been taught, as well as the Source of Life Itself inside of us. Although we can, indeed, never know the vastness of Creation, we can live at the meeting point of our own perceptions with The Great Mystery.
The person we know ourselves to be (our identity), is faced with finding new ground. Instead of being 'the knower' and the one in control, we awaken to the vaster reality that our knowing is a tiny speck in Creation.....even in the creation of our own bodies. Coming to the meeting place of Spirit and Matter in our awareness allows us to both welcome all that we have experienced, and simultaneously surrender to a Wiser Force by which we are animated. When we realize Life is Living us instead of the other way around, possibilities beyond our imagination begin to emerge.
WE CAN CHOOSE THE LIMITLESS IN ANY MOMENT!
As we originate our identity in Source, rather than in our personality, knowledge or belief systems, we become an instrument of Life. Dedicating our lives to the highest kaona of Creation, we are declaring that Life Itself is our directive. Since the only Life that's really Alive is happening right now, we are choosing our authority to be the present moment. Our mind, belief systems and habits are all based in the past. While they remain a part of our greater internal family, calling upon them to navigate our lives only reinforces old behaviors and leaves us with little choice but to repeat the old. This can cause us to feel like we are going in circles, or reliving old patterns over and over again.
Navigating from the present moment puts us at the edge of the unknown, and therefore allows us infinite choice! We might pause here to consider that each moment we encounter in our lives, has never happened before. Our minds tend to categorize our experience, so that getting up in the morning seems pretty much the same every day. Going for a swim, instead of the vibrant reality that we have never been in this space and time before, can get put into a box in our head labeled 'Swimming'. We end up living in a conceptualized reality, rather than an actual one.
ACTUAL REALITY IS BRIMMING WITH VIBRANCY
Choosing to open to the Living Present means that we face all that is arising inside of us, and outside of us, with a sense of curiosity. If we are here to discover what is actually here now, rather than 'capture' the 'idea' of the moment, we can come into touch with the pulsing vibrancy of endless possibility. The fastest way to touch the immediacy of the moment is to recognize what we are actually doing in any given moment. So if, in fact, we are busy labeling, describing and categorizing each experience, the simple noticing of this activity will bring us closer to making new choices which will free us from the past.
WHERE ARE YOU SEEING FROM?
What we see, and how we experience life, comes directly from where we Source ourselves in the very act of seeing. According to Ancient Wisdom, our experience of life is clearly a result of how we perceive ourselves, and therefore the world around us. It holds that though the Infinite resides in us in a most tangible way, we can choose to see through the tiny lenses that make up less than 1% of our being. Our pervasive paradigm of separation: what is right and wrong, good and bad, forgivable and unforgivable, colors how we perceive — most dangerously applied to our own internal landscape. Seeing though a fractured lens — that some of me is acceptable and some of me is not — creates a fractured view of the world. Once we begin to act on this distorted view, our actions reinforce our beliefs, elicit similarly distorted responses, and we find ourselves living in a fractured world.
CHANGING OUR 'PERCEPTIVE FIELD'
I know from personal experience, that the possibility exists to live in expansive new realities, in the midst of daily life. New doorways into Creation itself are opening each time we choose to listen to what is truly here now.
UNLIMITED LIFE AT OUR FINGERTIPS
The good news is that it is all up to us. We are the one choosing to engage in an open attention, in a willingness to meet what has never been met before, in this vital moment. We are, in every moment, choosing to live in the past, or to be surprised by the Living Present. The opportunity to step through the threshold is always ours. Through Creations Doorway, unlimited Life awaits!
NOTE: Engaging our cellular wisdom can be vital to this unfolding, as our bodies are always simply here, now! Our new 8-Week Online Course: The Body Consciousness Training, gives us experiential entryways to the infinite inside of our cells.
