I have been inundated with many people regarding their feelings over Covid-19. This opened up my memory banks to my childhood way back in the fifties, when I attended Correspondence School for children living in the outback. My Correspondence School teacher I never met in person, and only knew her from the report she wrote on the end of each page of my projects that I had submitted by mail. Both my mother and my father were our teachers for home. My mother during the day for our school work, and my father at night for homework. My siblings and I each had a tree that was our classroom. I had the soft branches of the native Wilga tree; named by the Aborigines who had never seen a willow tree and yet chose a similar name to call their tree. Its leaves hung down to the ground, similar to the willow tree. These leaves were gentle and swayed with this soft swishing sound as the wind rustled through the branches. It calmed an uneducated and innocent mind. I would close my eyes and listen to the chattering of the leaves and regain my confidence to go on with my lessons.
That tree cared for me, if it became too hot, the leaves parted to allow the breeze that it called for me, to cool me down. I have often thought of that tree, throughout my life when things broke down in my life. If the drought was hanging around, the seeds that fell from the tree, had the tolerance to wait until the rains came, as the nuts that lay on the ground softened in the water, the outer husk could open up to allow the nut to strike its roots for new growth. If the fires came to clear the ground, the flames could burn off the outer layer of the seed, for the seed to germinate in the potash and as always after the resurrection of the fires, the rains came to Baptize the ground. And this was during floods, fires and drought! Life continued on!
Through the beginning of the covid experience, I remember thinking about the responsibility that my children’s children, may have to face in the future, if we do nothing about the pollution of our Earth right now. In the fifties when I was creating on A3 coloured paper project sheets for school, we were informed (even back in the fifties) of the depravation we were creating to the planet. My pictures for my projects came from my paintings that I saw in my vision world and also from our National Geographic magazine which was delivered with the mailman, which was always a great help. The predictions back then, are an every-day occurrence in today’s world, as I now watch my children’s, children’s, children do their homework in today’s age.
And now, I send this message, to the young when they text me to stay safe with all of this craziness around. I send this reply: “ITS JUST KARMA…WE, THE WHOLE PLANET HAVE ALL EARNED THIS ONE! REMEMBER, WE REAP WHAT WE SOW…NOW THAT IS A GREAT HARVEST ISN’T IT! NOW, HOW DO WE GO ON…WHAT NEEDS CHANGING, WHAT NEEDS REARRANGING! LET US START WITH OURSELF FIRST! HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOU? SIT DOWN QUIETLY, CLOSE YOUR EYES AND LOOK WITHIN. WHAT DO YOU SEE? FOCUS YOUR INTENTION ON HOW YOU SEE THE WORLD, LOOK AT THE NEWS SERVICES, LISTEN TO THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE DESPERATE TO REARRANGE THE FINANCES, TO BRING US UP TO DATE WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING. HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HEAR THE SAME STORY REPEATING ITSELF? NOW MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU!
There is a hymn I learnt at Sunday School, “Build on the rock and not upon the sand.” The foundations of our home base must be strong to support the collaboration of our thoughts, whether it be the earth, or our own body, they must both be respected in the same way. Believe me, when I write these following words; there are millions of thoughts that we release over our lifetime, some are light, others create a heaviness in our mind and somewhere along our pathway a few feel just right! And yet, we forget that our home base has to be balanced to support our weight for us to continue on.
We all seem to be forcing ourselves to exist! Have you ever thought that by giving yourself credit, when it is due, that your whole body opens up, as it hears the respect you have in self, through your thoughts and autonomically steps forward to assist you? Please take the time to get to know the inner you, in this way there is no time for your stress to interfere throughout your day.
I want to share with you a story I always explain to my students, when walking into a new area. It’s about becoming the boundary rider, his job is to follow the fence line of a large paddock, looking for holes, to stop the vermin (foxes and dingoes), from killing the young lambs and causing havoc to the rest of the flock. The boundary rider repairs the holes and mends the fence line, which stabilizes the fence until he is satisfied with his work and then moves along the fence line to repair the next hole. He spends weeks out in the paddock on his own with his horses, a swag to sleep in, and cooking his food over a camp fire. When he is satisfied and finished with his job, he can return to the homestead and replenish his supplies and move out to the next area.
These gentlemen are amazing to listen too. They have a story to tell, that is so different to others. Just following that fence line opens up their peripheral vision where they can see through, not just look at, it is through their concentration on the job at hand, where they receive a totally different picture on what they are viewing. Through their focus, their mind has the opportunity to expand on their behalf, it assists them, all through the intention they have in each moment. They receive new ideas, which stretches their imagination and they can watch their plan grow, which has a greater opportunity to manifest itself, than if they were caught up in daily life of being and listening to others. They live in each moment, their focus is entirely in that moment, there is no interference from others, and they watch as their expectations gather a momentum to the end of that thought! That thought is never forgotten as it has been completed. It is always on standby to assist in like-minded circumstances. It becomes an added value to self.
My young ones listen to my story, as well as my precious students, as it is a lesson that is very hard to accept in the beginning. We have to dig deep to find the courage to believe in what we are asking of self. Once we lift the first layer, the second layer has the chance to walk into that empty space, where it is waiting in abeyance to assist us. Keep trying, it’s all about you, the stress you are creating, is you lacking in your own security and belief that you can begin to accomplish what you are asking for. May you all inherit your own breath; it has a myriad of answers waiting to assist you reaching a plateau (a place of rest) in your mind. Thank you for reading my thoughts. Omni.
