Limitlessness and My Three Year Old

Jul 14, 2014 by

magical-monday1 It’s common knowledge around here that three year olds are….challenging assholes.   I realized not too long ago that I’m still suffering PTSD from my second son’s three year old year. My first son, Finn, had all sorts of little…inconveniences…in his third year, but Roan put them all to shame. Oh MAN! Did he TORTURE us! It was so bad I even bought a book called “Your Three Year Old: Friend or Enemy” and the best advice they could give was to hire a babysitter as often as possible until their fourth birthday. I swear, my husband and I have never looked forward to a birthday as much as we did Roan’s fourth and oooohhhhh…we par-tayed! And truthfully, like magic, Roan changed overnight.  There was even a night shortly after his birthday where as we lay in his bed to go to sleep he said to me “Mama, I’m sorry.”

Enlightenment: Raw and Uncensored Part 3

I’ve been looking forward to today’s topic, as it was the most unexpected, most surprising, and most delightful discovery in my spiritual journey. Today (as I mentioned in Part 2) I’m talking about how enlightenment/awakening is not about TRANSCENDING our humanity, but IMMERSING ourselves into it. What the hell does that mean?

When most people (me included) think about enlightenment and spiritual awakening they get this picture in their head of someone who is all blissed out, calm, peaceful, serene, and even-keeled. Probably these enlightened people have given up their material goods, eat only fruits and veggies and green tea. They make the tiniest carbon foot-print. They don’t drink alcohol or eat junk food or yell at their kids even. They probably greet the day with a smile, do yoga and meditate regularly and gracefully go through out their lives, never fighting or raising their voice. They have infinite patience and have no desires as they’ve risen above those Earthly things.

Last week in Part 1 of Enligtenment: Raw and Uncensored I talked about…..I have absolutely no idea…..

You see, that’s one of the side effects of enlightenment: spiritual amnesia. I suppose part of it is all about “being in the now,” but throw Mothering into it, and yeah, I haven’t even got a chance of remembering what I ate for breakfast 2 hours ago. It’s okay, though. If you can’t remember the past, you can’t regret it either.

Today I’m going to tell you about some other side-effects I’ve experienced on my spiritual journey. When you find yourself asking the question “Isn’t there MORE than THIS?” which in turn lays the foundation for a brand new world to unfold, you may or may not experience the following:

Magical Monday

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* The ability to take my family to the circus this coming Friday! I used my “Pleasure Account” to buy the tickets and we get to go at 10:30 in the morning when it won’t be so crowded. I think I’m more excited than my kids ~ I’ve never been to the circus!

* Clearing out some useless old blackberry brambles in my yard over the weekend ~ there’s just something so satisfying about pulling up those thorny f*ckers from the roots. Now we’re going to use that area for swings, forts, flowers and other fun stuff. So happy to be adding another dimension to our yard.

* Taking my family to my aerial studio’s Open Stage night on Friday. There were some inspiring and breath-taking acts that have left me so motivated to excel on my aerial silks! I know I can do it too!
