Ocean

Raising Consciousness One Word at a Time

Ocean- a very large expanse of sea, in particular, each of the main areas into which the sea is divided geographically.

The ocean must be a strange concept to those who have never seen one.  It is a place that draws people toward it and provides more solace, advice, and comfort than most other places.  Why is the ocean such a magnet for peaceful feelings?  One thing we know for sure, if you have a history near one, it is in your essence and you are continually connected to it. There is something magical there and in us that finds a connection.  Big thoughts are realized looking into the waves and somehow they don’t seem so distant or unattainable.  Whatever your personal attraction, the ocean is a big part of many lives and being conscious of its pull and power can allow a person’s consciousness to rise.  It all starts with paying attention to your thoughts, words, and actions.

My Shift in Progress

Understand that there are great gifts that come with getting older , we shift into a new understanding.

The recent passing of Dr. Wayne Dyer has led me to contemplate some of the thoughts that he provoked in me that led to my own personal growth. One of Dr. Dyer’s projects was called the Shift. The shift was a movie and a book about finding your true purpose in life and doing the things that truly make you happy. It teaches many wonderful lessons, and the project has a lot of layers. You can watch it more than once and something new will jump out at you each time.  The shift is the natural movement in life that we experience as we age and become more experienced.  We shift in personal empowerment. Here are some of the lessons I learned from this wonderful project.

Finding Our Connections

Each person that I have ever met has in one way or We are all connectedanother basked in the glow of their individuality. The certain perks and character traits that made them uniquely them. I have as well clung to these traits to separate myself from the crowd, to show my unique value. Yet I look at society today and see that I am participating in a world that is manipulating all of us into a prison of individuality.  This is a prison that keeps us separate from learning about ourselves and  our own thoughts. It makes me wonder what I am missing. We are all connected, all we have to do is look for it.

Looking Up

This is a phone. It used to be in your home and if you weren't there, nobody could get in touch with you. Scary to most people today.

There are few things more invasive in all of our lives today than the electronic tethers and ties that are continually connecting us to the world. Are we really in need of connection?
