“Your vision will become clear only
when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.”

~ Carl Jung

Magic Everywhere

I was able to open the window last night to let the song of the crickets help me drift off to sleep. All August I have enjoyed this evening music. Cool nights in September forced me to close my bedroom window and the silence was disquieting with only my thoughts (that seem so loud!) to listen to. Last night was warmer though and I am grateful. My heart feels open this time of year. Beauty has a way of doing that. It can move you, if you let it.

Everyone around me seems to be spinning off in exciting new directions. I’m watching it all unfold. I wonder what my purpose is. Observing the mind and whatever emotions come up has become a daily practice. I’ve also taken an interest in energy work like Qi flow yoga. Daily, I send out loving energy to loved onesespecially those that I am not in physical contact with. Can they feel it? I sincerely hope so.

Observing the mind has shown me how little original content there actually is, which is unsettling. According to the masters, when the chatter wanes, inspiration will have space to emerge. Even with my dedication to the process of spiritually awakening, my mind is still confoundedly active! Perhaps I’m still hanging on to things that I’m unable to surrender to.

Anyway, a couple of songs were in my mind when I was waking up this morning, which I’ve come to trust, foolishly or not, as guidance from the ethereal realm. Both songs are from a mix that I first heard over a year ago. I’m currently listening to more music by these same artists on Grooveshark. Wonderful stuff! Enchanting music as summer fades out and autumn’s brilliance captivates us. ~
