Acceptance & Letting Go

There is always a divine order, purpose, and intelligent force streaming through our every moment, but this is not to say that our life as a human is a fair one.  Sometimes, there is taking one for the team.  There is a certain amount of grace that is called forth when we must accept that we are channeling the divine, and as a result of this divine expression, we move with the natural impulse of highest order of love.  This process may result in relationships of all kinds ending, but it does not mean it is a failure or anyone failed.  It may simply mean that this specific way that is being birthed into expression is the way that love is flowing in that moment.  I accept this.  I accept all circumstances as they are and as they unfold.  I hear the call from deep within me that moves me to express in a myriad of ways.  I align with our divinity no matter what the consequences or result of this alignment brings me; no matter what other people judge me for.  From this place, I regret nothing.  I grieve at times because sometimes the action that is called for will surely bring relationships & life experiences to a completion of their course.  There is loss.  There is sadness, but suffering is minimized when I accept this wholeheartedly and let go.  It requires me to be unattached to specific people & specific experiences remaining in my life.  It requires a dedication of being in servitude to this higher power no matter what this means for my life.  It means I will certainly experience disappointment and at times devastation, but it also means I will surely receive and experience love and power beyond measure.  I must remember that love has infinite faces.  There is love that is the happy go lucky, feel good experience.  There is love that is the down right dark and dirty truth, and I will rise with truth no matter the cost it brings in my own life.  I breathe as I accept, and then I let go.

Dolphins LOVE to teach us!

Hello dearly beloved, as our purple glorious Prince would say.  
I've been fortunate to have been experiencing a lot of travel in the past couple years, and one of my most recent excursions was back in Hawaii on the Big Island getting to swim with our wild dolphin friends.  They sure bring deep joy, peace, laughter, and insight.  That is, highly evolved, intelligent, insight. They welcomed us to swim in their pods and to play with us along with communicating through their example how to have more "workable" relationships in our own lives.  Dolphins swim in unison with each other and have a clear, natural flow in which they swim, co-exist, and BE with each other in harmony.  In the numerous swims I have experienced with them over the years, one of the many consistent fascinating things that continues to spark me is how as speedy as they swim with so many abrupt spins and turns, and as close as they get to me and to each other, I have never witnessed them crashing into myself or each other.  They are graceful, intuitive, and respectful creatures.  Their approach with others is to glide without colliding into each other.  I really understood this message into my own life in regards to relationships and boundaries.  Having boundaries or experiencing lack of boundaries is a struggle so central for many.  Do as the dolphins do, practice seeing ourselves and our relationships with clear distinctive lines of unison swimming and flowing without the crashing into each other that unnecessarily can create so much disturbance, suffering, and general "unworkability" in our relationships and in our lives.  Eventually, with more awareness and practice, our lives become less focussed on implementing boundaries, and become more organically focused on generating more intelligent flow that feels more harmonious and loving.  This translates into experiencing more love for ourselves and love for the ones we care about.  Our relationship with our selves and our relationships with others shift in more effective ways.  If only we would all simply "do as the dolphins do."  
Much love and blessings always.
