Canyon Lake Retreat – A Heading into Eternity

It is a direction our Sun is taking us through this Galaxy.  We’ve made this trip before.  Well.  Not us personally.  Personally, we see ourselves traveling around the Sun 365 days a year.  The Sun is a Traveler as well and we are along for the ride.  It actually has something to do with how I “woke up” as if in a deep sleep.  And the Sun continues on a course it knows so well and yet unchartered waters for our 3D forms (Body/Mind).  The Spirit aspect already KNOWS and continues its waiting for The Next Moment.  What is “this” Eternity we are heading toward?  I do not know anything specific whatsoever.  A Feeling.  We are heading into Something Wonderful.  The closer we get, the stronger I feel.  There has been the New Feeling as of late.  Thanks to the Universe directing me back to Christian D. Larson, I rediscovered Poise and Power and finally read the book after owning it for almost a year.  I seemed to be content with listening to the first four chapters on youtube.  Finally.  I was ready.  This incredible strength that had been growing and growing, combined with the Peace that was re-experienced a year ago was developing and molding into this This Poise.  I had a name for it now.  Poise.  But even now as I am giving consideration to this word, I know it is changing and Growing into More.  Whatever the “more” is, I’m not sure there is an earthly/human word to describe It.  Maybe that is why I am here.  Maybe that was why the Voice told me to begin writing this story.  I am heading into Eternity.  Eternity is Now.  Forever.

Canyon Lake Retreat – Getting Away

I got away.  Here.  Not that there was any pressure getting to me.  There was none.  The Voice spoke, I Listened, and here I am.  A Get-Away weekend with Nature.  I have met a few cats, a couple peacocks, a deer, some wildflowers, trees, birds (some high gliding birds of prey as well), and of course the Lake.  A Get-Away, not a run away, more like “getting back to the basics”.  Writing.  Reading new things (The Great Within, Tao te Ching), reconnecting with old, which are like NEW all over again (Your Forces and How to Use Them, The Pathway of Roses).  It’s been raining.  Good Nature Nourishment.  Was looking for a sunny sunrise over the lake but there is always tomorrow.  It’s fine.  Everything is happening as it is Happening.  The Sun has not gone anywhere.

Canyon Lake Retreat – The Mind

The Canyon Lake Retreat – The Mind

Our “intellect” is what it is.  So bio/socio it is.  We think therefore We Are.  So why not think the Best of Thought.  I always knew I was so much more.  The Voice in the back of my head nudging me forward…and the “Mind” holding me back.  Fears and doubts…make for cloudy skies.  We are so so so easily trained.  TV does it daily with the Majority (programs/programming).  I looked back 20yrs ago and found a distinct period where I was so easily trained.  I Am a Marine.  They are the best of the US military branches in that Mental aspect of shaping/growing Marines.  Why couldn’t I do that to myself?  To think only good and wholesome thoughts.  As with the Body, I needed to establish a foundation.  For me it was The Optimist Creed by Christian d. Larson from the book, Your Forces and How to Use Them.  A daily repetition (three times a day to begin with for a couple of months) of these words had a profound effect on my Mental Conditioning.  I had already (several years ago) removed TV but next removed reading news, social media outlets.  Anything that had the potentiality to produce negative thought.  Gone.  All that remains (and Grows) is all that is Good.  A year later and I decided to build (more).  Lumosity.  Brain games.  Still a work in progress as we continue to lay stronger and yet STRONGER Foundations.

Thinking without Feeling.  Feeling without Thinking.  Letting.  Allowing.  Being.  And without further drama, plus the effects, we Move On and Up.
