Awakening Consciousness

An alarm clock was one of the presents I gave my son on his 21st birthday.  “Useful and symbolic,” was his response. I felt proud he picked up on that.

Flashing back to my age 21 radar screen, no one seemed awake to the magnificent unseen power available to us, at least no one who actively talked to me about it. I take that back – some I knew probably did walk and talk it, but in my world, it absolutely would have gone right over my head… I was the one not awake; utterly clueless.

If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a word is worth 1000 pictures.

Willingness: Step 8

Willingness: Step 8

Once I became willing to accept that despite my myriad mishaps and blunders, I was whole perfect and complete in the moment with considerable room to grow, I could more easily consider doing the actions required in this Step. Going beyond my comfort zone in front of others was more than I could do at first. Even now there is still resistance from the ego at times. But it is my willingness to face myself that gives me enough insight to consider facing others.
