It’s hard to enjoy yourself at a party when you don’t feel well, or are grappling with major issues in your life. You may not even want to be around anyone else at all. Your first inclination might be to go home and crawl into your bed, and stay there until the storm passes. Nobody could blame you for this, but it’s just not party time for you right now, is it? And to enjoy the party, you have to be at it.
When you’re committed to growing and changing, it won’t always be easy. You might hit a rough patch and need to ‘disappear’ for a while. Then, all of a sudden, one day, life becomes lighter, easier. The sun comes out, you are more present, and your reality changes. Suddenly you can move forward again.
Have you noticed that when you feel well, music sounds better, colors are brighter, everything seems richer and fuller? It’s a lot less effort to create what you want, and things flow easily. That’s because the spirit of you is more fully present, and you are able to experience and access your feelings, senses, and abilities.
Your body’s senses are more alive and awake when you are in your body.
Just because you look in the mirror and see your body looking back at you, does not mean you are in it. Your body is always in one place, the present moment. However, you the spirit can be in many places at once. You can be scattered across your whole life, and way out into the future too. You may have already decided as a being that right here and now is no fun, so you stay away from yourself. You’re off creating in the future, or at a party in the past, one you judged to be much more fun than here and now.
The problem with this is that if you stay in all of those places instead of coming back here, you will not have the energy you need to change your present time reality. This is the place you do that, right here and now. So if you are wondering where you actually are right now, find your body. You might want to begin by saying hello to it, and starting to listen to it. If you create communication with your body, you will be richly rewarded.
You will begin to realize how very much you have to celebrate right now, when you get back here again.
*Bring your own body.
