Inner certainty becomes unexpected reality and unearths the nitty gritty of abundance

Remember last year I was navigating in quantum pea-soup fog? Negotiating peace with my inner abundance conflicts, while in a place of apparent lack?

This month I stepped through a doorway and after so many years blind, the fog vanished. The landscape thus revealed sprung to my eye with such clarity that I realised I've not seen the path this clearly for more than a decade.

The door was as unexpected and foreign as if I had walked through a paddock full of sheep and just happened upon it standing in its frame, alone in the middle of the grass. How peculiar.

At last… an abundance of answers!

After waiting for three years, seven years, and who knows how many lifetimes, at last I have an abundance of answers.

And also, some answers about abundance!

A tale of three stories: work, money, and power beyond love or evil

Who would have thought it possible - me being comfortable in the corporate world... and me being comfortable with money! Never mind embracing the ugliest aspects of myself with love and compassion and not needing to fix anything.

Me - the homeless man on the street

Sometimes I see myself with such painful clarity that I wish I was blind... but that same vision helps me when I realise I can let go of old fears. Then my hands are empty and able to receive.

And you thought the earthquake was a big deal, try having a head transplant!

The ground is shaking but that's kind of extra ... continents are moving inside me.

Forget abundance, enough is enough!

Seabirds, light and water on an incredibly beautiful Wellington summer evening.

What a relief to release the old idea of over-the-top abundance! I can't explain how much that's niggled at me over the years. It's completely upside-down compared to how things work within any functional collective, and the more I remember who I am and where I come from, the easier it becomes to shift into the collective way of doing and being ...

Pardon my paradigms, I’ve no clue what I should be paid!

A water sculpture outside a shop on my way to work, the face of peace.

For a long time I struggled to put a dollar value on my services, even though I know how useful they are. I feared that the moment I said what my fee was, the person would lose interest because it would be too much. This month, wonderfully and unexpectedly, that whole paradigm has dissolved ...

Icing diverts us from abundance. Anyone for cake?

the beauty of dead maranta leaves

2013 brings me new ways of doing and being. Old patterns and ideas are still vanishing into the sunset and I'm finding that even more of my ideas about abundance are completely obsolete!

Error noted, course corrected, unexpected revelation, freedom

Leaving Port Wellington on the ferry to Days Bay

Sometimes I just have to recognise that I've flubbed. Do something about it, and move on. This is one of those times, and it feels so good to have realised, and acted.

Plodding through a whirlwind

Hurricane Sandy

Right now there's so much going on I can only just manage to keep putting one foot in front of the other. It's wild in here. Things are changing so fast there's no point in trying to keep up, only to go with it. And through it all the inner shifts keep coming ...
