We are all baby ducks…

Standard

duckling

I’m reading an interesting e-book at the moment called Living from the Heart – currently only the first chapter called: We are all baby ducks – the title of which intrigued me and my creative juices got into flow…

In essence, like baby ducks – ducklings to be pedantic – we, as humans learn to bond onto other people, thoughts, situations, ideas, concepts, emotions, beliefs and ways of being. And whilst these bonds can prove useful and occasionally helpful, they (can) inhibit our natural ability to be true to our selves.

In bonding to something I’ve learned outside of my self – something I’ve been told or a thought that’s arrived in my thinking, an event in my life or the way someone else behaves, thinks or treats me – I am already narrowing my world to a place of no other possibilities and possibly self-destruction.

And, that, my friends, is dangerous! We are remarkable and beautifully created and creative beings with oodles of untapped potentials. Why, oh, why do we need to be pigeonholed or entombed in a box of our own construction by buying into bonds that destroy our very abilities to manifest the amazing?

So, perhaps this is a call to action: find what bonds you hold that simply limit, even hamstring your talents, your wonder or your Beauty, and release them. Then watch your self soar in the space you will find as a result. That space is yours to take and be in; it is your natural state.

Transitions take many forms – some are drastic in the painful sense; others momentous in an ecstatic spiritual sense; some are just plain small and seemingly insignificant, though they do trundle us forwards towards the next set of choices where we have options to make new decisions.

Are you ready to make different decisions and to move towards your natural grace of Being Love, free of bonds that harm you?

Perhaps it’s time to move from your current state … what do you think?

Unconventional Love

Standard

Love has been hijacked. The way Love’s used in modern language reverberates around innuendo, material gains or sex. What is a deeply spiritual value, quality or feeling has become sullied in everyday use. Love’s honest, solid power is so diluted that it probably doesn’t even recognise its self in the mirror… Mention Love today that isn’t about what the media portrays, is to be unconventional.

How a child loves her favourite toy, the importance of a cherished set of clothes or a story or poem that makes us feel good, or moves us emotionally, is now side-lined, even considered irrelevant… What gives us that fuzzy warm feeling of enjoyment, what makes us feel happy is not enough to be Love…

And, anyone who says: “No! I value the beauty of Love for she holds power; Love is my nature and Love is a real language of the spirit, of the heart, of me…” is seen as unconventional. AND yet, they are real for they are honest enough to resist the downward slide that takes us (yet) further from our truth…

If the cost of being seen as conventional in the world costs us our eternal wonder, our truth, is it a price worth paying? Are you prepared to pay the price to fit and be deemed fit to the convention?

Love is the answer to so many issues. I say: “let us be unconventional for the conventional seems like Hell!” Anyone else choose to be unconventional?

So, what does a Transitions Mentor do?

Standard

Hello All,

Here is a testimonial that shares the experiences of one of my clients. Francesca had been going through personal hell due to changes and difficulties at her work as her employers constantly changed her working situation. As it describes my working style, much better than I can, I thought I’d share it with you…

Testimonial for Benn

“I have known Benn for quite a few years now, and the recent journey undertaken with him as mentor was a new venture for us, and yet a confirmation of what I already knew about him.

It is going to be difficult to select what is relevant – Benn has wit, knowledge, emotional intelligence and empathy, and all of Benn’s being, life experience, values is shared when he becomes your mentor. Generosity is a key quality. And his generosity, in turn , is the offspring of Love – the driving force which I believe must have guided Benn towards choosing this role: what else can be the motivation for lending a hand to those in despair and helping them remove bleakness layer by layer, until the purity of one’s soul can shine again. And what better reason can there be for choosing a mentor, if not knowing that he loves you already; he will not be distracted and corrupted in his Love by the darkness that envelopes you: like a parent, he will keep his eye and his heart on the Good of your soul, and he will help you embrace your true self, and never let go.”

    Francesca 29 June 2011

Blessings,

Benn
