Remaning Awake & Aware November 9, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Magick & Mystery, Mindfulness, Spirit & Ego.
Val’s recent post Shifting Allegiances caused me to re-visit the events described in Fire & Rain. Doing so, helped me see why what we did . . . and did not do . . . made so much sense to me at the time and hence:
Being curious instead of fearful had something to do with why we didn’t run out of the building into the pouring rain when the fire alarm sounded . . .
Instead of trying to control the situation, we trusted that our collective intuition would encourage us to move in plenty of time if we were really in harm’s way . . .
Instead of being attached to the stories swirling in our head about what the alarm “might” mean, we let go of our prejudgments and stayed in the present moment . . .
And when it proved to be a false alarm, we were grateful that we were warm and safe and dry . . .
Aah . . . That’s Better!
