Week 10 – I’m A Gentle Puma

“I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep”.

It’s tough. It’s hard. I’m struggling. Like many of us I imagine. The days are too short, too many things to do. Maybe it’s the winter arriving ? It’s pretty cold out there. And it’s dark so early, 4pm…

OK now, stop right there. Stop whining. That’s about as far as we’ll go into that alley. I am a lion. A mountain lion. I’m a warrior. I know it’s all in my mind. It’s all my own blurred perception. I want to sharpen my senses and see the Truth. My mind’s windshield gets dirty now and then, from daily travelling. Dusty bumpy roads. I need to wipe it clean, to see clearly again. Chanting “Om” helps. Stretching helps. And I’ve continued to use “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” many times this week. Every time, immediate results. Really powerful. And I’ve repeated it also mentally while looking at people in the street. Giving it away so to say – give more, get more. Even today still. That was quite interesting. I could feel the love channel opening, I could feel compassion seeping in I believe, “loving all manners of men”. Just for a few moments. Encouraging. That’s where I want to abide.

I remember the Aikido master Tomita Seiji Shihan, 8th dan, saying “Normal, relax”. And “breathe”. He didn’t use many words during class, or in general for that matter… It reminds me that there’s no need to get all tense in the middle of the battle. On the contrary. Be relaxed. Focus. Be present. Do what needs to be done. Be like water my friend…

I remember my totem – Gentle Puma – which I got during camp with a nature study group I used to be part of during my teen years. I love nature, I love the woods. I still feel gentle, kind, and I also feel like a wild animal… strong and moving swiftly. Keep poking me, keep pricking me with that lance, keep giving me too much to do, and watch what happens…

    I always feel so centered after reading one of your blog posts! Pity I hadn’t read it yesterday before going to the holiday party on Jerry’s side of the family; I could have looked at each one and silently said, “You are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy!” Saying it for other people had never occurred to me, but you are such an open-hearted, loving person that I follow your guidance in interacting with people. Thanks!

    Beautifully stated. I, too, loved, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy and loving”. I will now, because of you, remember to always give it away as well. Thank you!
