Not to long ago I was outside watering the grass and meditating for a brief moment in my usual way, when a neighbor of mine came by. Her daughter just got a new skateboard for her birthday. By the way she may be reading this, I told her to check out my website. I hope my subscribers have been sharing my website with others also. That’s the best way to show me you appreciate my work, well it’s that and paypal but who’s counting.
Any way, when you come to the end of the story that I’m getting ready to tell you, the young lady probably could have done without my two cents, but I really felt like the message was one that I needed to listen to for myself. This is what happened.
As I was watering the grass, I continued to watch the young girl try her hand at skateboarding. She wasn’t getting further than a half foot, maybe 2 before she would fall down and off the skateboard. The little girl just turned 12 years old, the day before and she was ready to take on a new challenge.
You and I we take on challenges too. When we take on our challenges we are basically getting on a skateboard for the first time figuratively speaking.
Think about it this way, when you are standing straight up you are symmetrical on both sides, and this makes you balanced. The skate board is symmetrical and both sides as well, and there for it is balanced. The catch is that the your balance depends on that of the skateboard. When you as a working partner with the skate board keep the experience balanced everything else will flow into being. What’s important to know is that we don’t attempt to kick push, until we understand the balance of the skateboard.
Who or what is our skateboard during our challenges. Our skateboard is our divine source of all things that feel good. Mind you I didn’t say all things good, I said all things that make us feel good. Good is just a vocabulary word described to that feeling inside of us that feels like sweet vibration. (you know the feeling it's unmistakable)
We must first become balanced and at one with the Source before we can move forward successfully to the next step. The next step is finding where it is comfortable. We hear the phrase all of the time, "get out of your comfort zone". WHY? Even when someone is working out their muscles they must stay within a zone that will not hurt them, yet people preach get out of your comfort zone and don’t lend a hand nor finger to pull you out of the pain.
So get adjusted in a space that feels comfortable, and once you have mastered that space move to the next space. Don’t cheat yourself. When you are ready to advance take full advantage.
When we fall off the skateboard as the young girl did many times, we will quickly do as she did and get right back up. Why? Why do we get back up? We get back up because we know that no matter where we fall in the process, in our journey we will remain grounded.
What would pose as your balance to ensure a clear connection to the Divine Source?
How often will you tilt the scale. The bottom line is that millisecond of doubt right before assurance kicks in is an adrenaline rush to say the least, but it’s what you do with that adrenaline dictates rather you will fall again or stay up.
