“Aal Izz Well.”... thats for sure

Posted by Tandarin Nike Monday, February 15, 2010 11:59 AM
One of my measurable goals this year was to walk 500 kms. That means 2 kms a day, 5 days a week.

The true objective is to become active. Physical capacity will give me the energy, vitality, and clarity to serve more and to live more fully. With my exercise goal, I am certain that I will also shed some pounds. It will all work together to enrich my life hopefully.

Increasing my emotional capacity will also get the most attention this year. The other facets I feel are on auto-pilot, but the emotional aspect of my life will require focus.

By emotional capacity, I mean that I want to open my heart. I’m a decided thinker according to my zodiac sign and I love that aspect of myself and my ability to analyze. However, I would like to be a more compassionate person, with myself and others.

I do have the remarkable ability to see clearly through any situation to the highest solution. In the process, I often ignore the process that the person is going through to get there. I know that I’ve done that with myself and at least one other person in the past.

This year, I would like to be present in moments of pain and joy. They are both states. No more trying to escape it by looking forward to the end result. I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish this, but I’m sure that I’ll know when I have.

To be completely honest, there is a part of me that is very afraid I’ll become a sap and I won’t be able to think logically, but I know deep within that this will only enhance my capacity to be a change agent in this porous and unpredictable world.

Now coming to my spiritual capacity, what can I say? Enhancing and building spiritual capacity it seems gives you access to all the resources in the Universe. There is only so much that I consciously know or was taught.

A little bit more that is hanging out in my subconscious that I may have consciously forgotten, but might be able to tap into if pressed. I have the mental ability to do research and find the things I know I need, but what about the things I don’t know I need?

Often in life, you don’t know the right questions to ask in order to get the information you need, or in short, you don’t know what you don’t know.

The collection of all knowledge is held in the Universe. When I tap into that source, I will be surely nudged in directions I would not ordinarily head. Or I might be where I was going, but I might observe something that helps an idea click.

To my knowledge, Spirit is the underlying energy of everything and everyone. It is coursing through us, a resource seldom tapped. It is crying out to express through you and me to create the world we want.

We are trained to look to our intellect, colleagues, friends and family for information and wisdom. We need to train ourselves to tap into the divinity within us. That still, small voice that nudges you to the left or right.

Its the feeling that you have when you know you need to call your friend and it turns out, they needed more of your shoulder to cry on.

Spirit is not above being the whack on your head that’s telling you to get out of the wrong job or start sharing your truth. Increasing your spiritual capacity means that you set yourself in the flow of life and become wide open for all the good in the universe to come through you.

You will begin to see your world change and take on a vibrancy that you could behold. Increased spiritual capacity means a knowing that all is working together for good set so deeply within you that even in the most dire circumstances you can say, “Aal Izz Well.”

Building financial, physical, emotional, and spiritual capacity will enable us all to live in alignment with a purpose. It will help live life with meaning. This too is very much on my agenda for the next 10 months.

Please don’t interpret this as me saying that if you don’t have money or vitality or if you have emotional problems, you cannot live your purpose. I am living proof that you can live your purpose right where you are in your life.

Giving your life purpose has to do with living in alignment with your values. It means doing the things you love, being yourself in all situations, and having the resources to do it.

I currently work in a highly technical and skilled job with the local government. Every day I go to work as open to expressing spirit as I can for the day. I ask to be an instrument of spirit. When I hold meetings with my various groups, I’m not only there to gather requirements, but to hold the space for the best possible outcome. This is all great and I enjoy it thoroughly.

However, I’d like to teach others how to hold that space in their lives as they fulfill their purpose. I do it a little within this blog of mine. I talk to co-workers. I volunteer in organizations to be that person.

I would like to do it for a living. Having the financial resources, being emotionally and physically healthy, and becoming a bigger container of spirit is enabling me to move in that direction.

New years always bring great promise. By increasing our capacity in all the major areas of our lives, we can all feel fulfilled. Hope and pray our lives thus become more robust, full, and balanced.

At the end of this year I plan to measure my goals acheived and present it to all of you....

Wish me luck.....
