If you were part of our A New Earth tele-chat but weren’t able to finish the book. No worries. In the midst of shopping, doing, giving to others, give yourself some space (10 minute spurts will do) to watch or read Chapter 10. It captures the essence of the book and all you need to do become “A New You.”
Here are a few of my favorite a-ha’s. I’d love to hear what resonated with you…
Each night, without knowing it, you return to the unmanifested Source of all life when you enter the stage of deep, dreamless sleep, and then reemerge again in the morning, replenished.
I know sleep is important, but putting it in this way gave it a depth I needed to hear. I might be able to skip the ice cream before bed now. Do I really want to give my body something that’s going to interrupt this magical process ? Wouldn’t it be great to wake up not just physically, but spiritually replenished ???
Each person’s life represents a world, a unique way in which the universe experiences itself…
This makes the responsibility of delivering our gifts and encouraging others to do the same, in their own way, even more important.
The closer we get to the end of our present evolutionary stage, the more dysfunctional the ego becomes… in the same way that a caterpillar becomes dysfunctional just before it transforms into a butterfly.”
Great. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. I could let that bum me out, or I can watch for it when it happens and know that, it is going to get better. My ego is going to do all it can to stay stuck. Not because I don’t deserve peace or happiness, but because that’s just how it is structured. Its job is to keep me separate from my purpose. It’s my choice to evolve. All I have to do is stay aware, accept and embrace the process.
If you’re not in a state of Acceptance, Enjoyment or Enthusiasm about what you’re doing, stop doing it.
What a comforting gauge for change! If we apply what we’ve learned about not resisting, blaming or resenting situations we’re not “happy” about, answers will come. We will know how to accept it, how to start enjoying it, or how to change it.
Enjoyment will replace wanting as the motivating power behind people’s actions…
Wouldn’t that be awesome?? To strive for what we enjoy instead of what we think we should achieve? And, just when you might be thinking that Enjoyment is about blowing off responsibility, ponder this:
“If you can neither enjoy or bring acceptance to what you do – stop. Otherwise, you are not taking responsibility for the only thing you can really take responsibility for, which also happens to be the one thing that matters; your state of consciousness. And if you are not taking responsibility for your state of consciousness, you are not taking responsibility for your life.”
I can’t think of a better a-ha to end our A New You with A New Earth tele-chat experience. For more encouragement and reminders about how to take responsibility … check out the chapter-by-chapter a-ha’s.
Thank you for sharing your A New Earth experience with me. I am excited to practice all we’ve learned and can’t wait to watch the year unfold.
Take especially good care of yourself,
