Rereading old posts, I came across these fabulous directions for living from myself, from December 2003. They ring true today and I ponder them for the next year.
acquiesce. (Which secretly means to act.) [So, how do I know how to act?]
I know how to act by being in tune with INTENT (the big intent of the universe, eagle, tonal, etc) and my intent (personal). I try to keep a detached view (sometimes very very hard). I practice various magical passes. I practice seeing. I look for agreements. I practice dreaming. All these tools provide an individual piece like compass, map, next resting area on map, that helps me know what to do (acquiesce) in my "everyday" life.
My life has been very difficult recently. There have been huge changes happening. The changes happened (I made them) because I finally had the energy, guts, and surrender to acquiesce.
Acquiescing can be done in small shifts and sometimes in very swift crushing movements.
They key word up there is surrender. Surrender to acquiescence.
Surrender to your life. Surrender to live it passionately and with awareness.
