I’m not afraid of death because I don’t believe in it.― John Lennon
It’s just getting out of one car, and into another.
We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…― john lennon
A Father’s Guide to Wisdom
A little bit off topic, but bear with me. I often will listen to classical rock. Perhaps with all that is going on, that is why I chose to focus on a great speaker of peace, John Lennon’s words this week. Here we see some inroads into this man’s deeply rooted spiritual philosophy, and it reminds me of another great rock band’s anthem, Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd. Perhaps that last quote was somewhat of an influence? Who knows, but there is some words of wisdom there, wouldn’t you agree.
In any form of spiritual wisdom, the issue of death, transcendence, and the capacity to move to greater heights is addressed. We are just vehicles of the wake that was yesterday, but the direction the car travels is always in our control. We need only steer the vehicle towards the direction we want to take it. That direction is created through dual perspectives, one future oriented, the other present minded. We must determine where we are going, and be present enough in the moment not to hit the objects directly in our path in order to get to our destination in a safe manner.
Carl Jung was well aware of this concept, when he explored the ideal Self as emerging from a process called circumambulation. This is a process that is not linear, diverges from the outside path most often taken, and draws the person to go within. But this process creates the means by which environmental forces draw our attention to those events, those very stimuli that were always present, but not part of our conscious awareness. They draw conscious awareness to their presence to amplify the frequency by which we are operating. It brings our consciousness the vision to bring that etherial direction into a manifest reality.
Today, I will focus on the creation of abundance. But to what direction. I will manifest it to move me closer to my internal dream which is to be a man that follows through, and pushes out the other side. What is your motivating factor today? What car are you jumping out of and into? As always…
Many Prayers and Blessings… Don’t forget to Believe… Achieve… and Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
