Update Yourself With The Significance Of Your Name

Before the butterfly can fly it was first born as something very different: a leaf munching caterpillar. Although they are the same creature they show very different natures. The caterpillar is pedestrian and the butterfly graceful. The caterpillar cocooned itself with the genetic knowing it will be reborn into a colourful butterfly. The beautiful butterfly is reliant upon the survival of the slow caterpillar. All three stages (caterpillar, cocoon, butterfly) are equally and uniquely valid.

As we grow our lives are layered with the residue of our experiences.  Each of the three names can accrue a greater potency as we learn which of those experiences direct us in the direction we want to go.  As we grow we discover how best to work in the world, refine what we want and how to live accordingly.

When you seem to have an unclarity of what you want or how to get it, that is a good time to reflect on your resources.  Or if  there is a feeling of having lost direction or connection it is time to pause.   It is very useful to review the role of each life within you that each of the three names represent.  As you grow so does the pertinence of your history.  As a child life decisions were made for you.  Now as an adult you make them.  This updating process  highlights the value of your attitude and vision to extract meaning from your past and apply it to your development.

This process of updating helps to find purpose in the daily striving and the life long journey.  It can take a load off of you in the moment to see the continuity of your life and harvest the life lessons and crystalize emotion of your experiences.  There is healing available in case we need to reframe a difficult childhood.   With a view to update your youth that now supports a development journey we can convert that difficult childhood from a wound into a strength. It can become the forging of a knowing that no matter the situation you find yourself in you bring unique value to the moment.  

In the wake of peace from 15 minutes of meditation or walking in nature consider the following:

Foundation Name – The function of your family growing up, companionship in school and playing/sports/trips, learning new skills. – Breathe in the reality that those experiences support your growth now.

Synthesis Name – The importance of your unique way of upholding the human experience including: your style, sense of humour, attention to detail.  Know that this is your fingerprint on the energy of life that you attract by the fact of your initiative and your human pedigree.

Mystery Name – Being creative with ways to stay curious about the pathways of energy: in the mind, of your high emotions, of the planet Earth and beyond.  This elevates into clarity of what is happening in the moment as it is unto itself (as opposed to things are happening to you).  This means you can load your elder life with your desire to be of service to your communities

In the updating process we will likely have many memories that make us happy, sad, angry and long for days gone by.  We can take advantage of the awesome attribute of the mind called memory.  It causes us to picture and feel our life history.  We can generate appreciation for those times and make them into the strength of our foundation for what we as an adult and elder want to do and be.  We can be grateful for the functioning of the body and its faculties for their accuracy of functioning in constant support of our life.

Excerpt from the book Satisfaction about Emotional Agility

The purpose of the couple next to you in the movie line-up, the guy selling you the popcorn – his manager – the manager’s dad – the manager’s dad’s dentist – the dentist’s dog’s veterinarian are all permeated with the same human stamp: To love and Be Loved.  A sincere want to be the receiver of someone else’s need to love.   To, in return, have the opportunity to love them back. 

To The Nature Spirits of the Little Waves

To the Nature Spirits of the little waves on the pebbly beach …

… with your little breaking waves that curl quick and complete. As the curl runs out of water to draw up from below the small curl crashes in miniature on the shore. Tickling the pebbles as it slides up the shore and gurgles back into the lake.

The clear water bathing the pebbles highlights all the mineral specks and streaks, iron red and carbon black, the shiny and dark and sparkling.

Again and once again. Slightly bigger little waves when the wind picks up.

You live on the compact curl and crash of the undulating lake. You thrive in the soothing tickle and gurgle of water among the pebbles.

You are buoyed by their constancy and float on the spontaneity of each new little wave.

Your style permeating those waves pulls in my gaze so I try to locate your magnetic magic – I never do. But I do end up rediscovering rejuvenating peace, getting cleansed by your soft yet exact presence.

To the Nature Spirits of the little waves on the pebbly beach – Thank you.

Thank you for adhering to your nature.

Nature Spirits – Man as a totem Pole

Nature Spirits

What in the world do Nature Spirits have to do with the education of a man so he is a totem pole of warmth and protection for his spouse?  

Buckets.  

Nature Spirits are always and everywhere connected to their nature and the moment and their purpose.  Imagine if a man could say the same. 

How does a man connect with his nature, elevate in the moment, adhere to their purpose?

A few thoughts …

What are Nature Spirits. Nature Spirits are the religious life of planet Earth.  The spirits of the wilderness are the abundant energy that resonates from the spinning earth.  They are natural and are integral in your well being in various ways.  In every life.  If you have a soul you are an anchor for nature spirits.  That makes you important to nature.  That means you are appreciated by nature.  Nature being planet Earth.  Your home.  Your power source.  

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a soul. Or you as a soul bearing being – that’s ok.  

Read these words slowly.  Know that you have a soul; that you inhabit a planetary soul.  That your soul registers the energy of nature spirits.  When at peace anyone can sense this energy.  When we get stuff done in our day we generate Satisfaction.  Satisfaction is the foundation for peace.  So the homework of connecting with nature is being good at your Satisfaction to be able to offer to others and nature a man at peace.

What the Nature Spirits need to know is the real you.  They can mesh with the you of now.  Not the Ego based needy version of some guy.  What they seek is the you that loves responding to the call for a man.  To do and to be.  Not that the man knows everything.  Far from it.  They love the imperfect man that wants to grow.  That accepts his faults because his human qualities are a better reflection of who he is. Highlighting his strengths is a better investment than correcting his faults.   

+++

It is crucial that a man understand he is wanted.  Wanted by his family.  Wanted by the powers of religion.  Moved by religion. Animated by a relevant power to push into the world.  To surge into the day.  The amazing matrix with which a man can do all this everyday is the soul.

+++

The soul is the amplifier of your passion, your emotion, your belief.  Yours.  No one else’s.

It simply cannot provide soul service to another body.  Because you and your soul are intricately, beautifully and fatality intertwined.  No body can decide for you the relationship you as an adult have with your soul.  

Without a doubt you have programming from your childhood that impacts your decision making whether they are good habits or traumatizing events.  Now you are an adult and you decide your habits, routines and rituals.  Let’s say habits are more for the Ego, routines for your Best 

Ego and Rituals for your Devotional life – the Higher Soul.

All three of these use your history that lives in your blood and your resonance from your bones as a source of power.  Power to connect with nature and higher perception.  Power to project rejuvenating energy to someone else.  Power to keep learning how to use your Best Ego to help get your Satisfaction that generates peace to welcome healing Nature Spirits into your life.

Connect, Elevate, Adhere.

Go Man Go.
