a message from consciousness…

My son has an effective method for tuning in to consciousness that I’d like to share:

Rick-PlaneView

One of my favorite things to do is tune in to my Guidance. I breathe ~ feel ~ relax, then ask a question or focus on a certain topic — something I’m wanting clarity or direction on. Then I listen and write what comes:

Open your eyes. What a magical journey, this life. Your life. So many blessings, it’s incomprehensible. How your body works. How the planets work. How your planet works. How life works. How yoga works. Yes yes yes, to align with the power that is behind and within all of THAT… what could be better? You open your eyes and see this beautiful life, an expression of what you have been asking for. Was the desire something you chose? Was it? Was it deep within you, part of you, like the color of your eyes, or was it something that CHOSE YOU? What if all of your life is CHOOSING YOU? All of your life: your kids, your health, that you are still alive, the beautiful humans you know, this laptop, your boardshorts, this amazing house and tree view and pool, the sunshine… did you create ANY OF IT? Oh my god. Oh my god. Somehow you must have created ALL of it. The whole Universe. Somehow you are a consciousness in a physical body, playing in this physical world, FEELING, moving, rearranging, listening, expressing, resting, exploring. Here again, here again. This flow like a tsunami totally unstoppable!!!! HERE is your power. Be on alert for what IS HAPPENING. Be on alert for what may happen next. Listening, full attention, full interest, full wonder! The people, angels, in front of you. Are they real? How did they come into your life? From not “knowing” they existed, to THIS, NOW, HERE. Touchable. We can tell you: there are no limits. THERE ARE NO LIMITS. There is no limit to how good you can feel. There is no limit to how much you can GIVE. There is no limit to how much you can receive. There are no limits. Be fearless. Be fearless. Be fearless. Be loving. Be. Let life write through you! Let life give through you! Let life listen through you!! Let life touch through you! Hold on to nothing… not these angels, not your kids, not yourself. Let life create itself. Be here. Breathe. Yes, love that fear. Love the fears, love the joys. You win.

children moving forward…

If you encourage your children to stay connected to Source Energy, they will remain clear-minded; they will remain optimistic; they will remain enthusiastic. They will remain balanced; they will remain flexible. They will remain in a state of grace. They will remain in a state of Well-Being. And they will make wonderful choices.   — Abraham

life is a love affair…

“Life is a love affair, it is poetry, it is music. Don’t ask ugly questions like, What is the purpose? because the moment you ask it, you disconnect yourself from life. Life cannot be bridged with philosophical questions. Philosophy has to be put aside.”   ––   Osho

SURF LIFE   with Rick Cowley

this is what I mean...

Inspiring Young Adults Through Cancer

There is a way of being where you are at peace, you trust Life, you take one simple step at a time, you let yourself and your Life move forward into the unknown and you know that everything is going to be fine. You feel ease. You are breathing. You are aligned with your Inner Being and the subtle pulses of the Universe. You are real. Your attention is here and now. You easily tie up loose ends and ride the forward momentum of Life.

This is what I call The Flow; and it’s akin to surfing a wave.

It’s where synchronicities happen. It’s where you are letting very good things happen with not much effort. It’s where Life feels like an adventure that’s really fun and sometimes scary (but that’s fun too). And best of all it just feels really really good–like surfing.

Getting diagnosed with cancer as a young adult is like getting a shot of this PRESENCE into the heart of your Being; ALL THE LITTLE THINGS THAT YOU HABITUALLY WORRIED ABOUT SEEM TO DISAPPEAR; YOU ARE SCARED, IT’S OKAY; YOUR HEART OPENS UP, AS DO THE HEARTS OF THOSE AROUND YOU; YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO BE YOURSELF, TO EXPRESS YOURSELF; THE ILLUSION OF “SOME DAY” EVAPORATES; YOU TAKE A MASSIVE STEP CLOSER TO REMEMBERING YOUR UNIQUE PURPOSE.

You start getting glimpses: YOU create your Life. But how? How did this happen?

You start asking important questions: WHY AM I HERE?

YOU START PAYING ATTENTION TO HOW YOU FEEL: EASE AND ALIGNMENT? OR DIS-EASE?

You start creating more, as you were meant to… maybe painting or writing about your journey. And creating bigger things–like a healthy harmonious body and mind.

An important part of you gets awakened: I want my life to make a difference, I want my life to count. I want to be fulfilled.

But most importantly:

I want to BE ALIVE, right here, right now, in the Flow of Life, in the Flow of Love, in the pulsing heart of this miracle of Life.

This is the gift of getting cancer as a young adult. You CAN change your life to align with who you really are and what you came here to do.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” – Joseph Campell

“For me, the ultimate reality is to surf my way through life; to experience the same sense of exhilaration, co-creation, flow and fun that I do on a wave, moment to moment, as my Life unfolds.” Rick Cowley
