Tend the Crop - the Design Emerging

How exciting!  You've set a creative intention and in doing so, planted a seed for a change to occur.  You've overcome the inertia and inevitable resistance to change, allowing momentum to build.   Now what's needed to keep things unfolding gracefully?

It's such an achievement to get over the first hurdles that it can be tempting to sit back and think all the rest should be plain sailing.   But as all good farmers know, the job is not done until the crop is harvested.   Now it's time to nurture the emerging crop so it reaches its full potential.  What do you need to look out for?
  1. Take care of the crop.   Are there things showing up that are like weeds and need to be removed? Does the crop need watering, fertilizing?   With your intention, there may be things that need attending to in order that the prime crop flourishes.   I've often found that a change, even a welcome change, brings up personal issues for people which need to be embraced.  Do whatever is needed in order that movement of the intention can be maintained.  Is there more discussion needed?   Is there healing required - in self or others?  Tend to these matters.
  2. Remember the intention.  Bring to mind and heart the initiating power which you are stewarding and allowing to bring forth a creative design.   Have you remained true to that power or have you co-opted that power for another purpose?  Examine your heart to ensure that you are doing your part and letting Life reveal its design. 
  3. Review what's emerging - is the crop what you imagined?   Does Life have something else in mind to which you need to adjust?  If so, what adjustments are needed?  Be flexible here - Life is in control and your skill is in allowing that to be so.
  4. Give thanks for the process that's revealing the crop.   However the crop looks and whatever you may need to do to tend or adjust to the crop, the reality is that a miracle of creation is occurring.  New life is emerging.  Give thanks for that!
As you remain open to the initiating intention and curious and flexible as to Life's design that's emerging, you'll be fully participating in the joy of creation.  We are designed to be creators and this is one of the key joys of living a human life.  Savour it!

You Tube of the Month - Super September at Riverdell



Celebrating Greatness  
In this edition we continue our series of 'Celebrating Greatness', sharing the greatness of "ordinary" people who are opening up to new possibilities and to being leaders in their own lives.
This month Rachael Anderson  shares her thoughts and insights.
Rachael offers Yin Yoga classes at Riverdell Tuesday evenings

Here I Stand
There is great importance these days on the number of letters after ones name or the amount of qualifications we need to have. To be honest that has never motivated me. I have never been swept up  in the need for more money or to reach a certain position of power amongst my peers. That is simply not wealth to me.

I have always tried to dedicate myself to the service of others. I don't really know why to be honest except that
had some deep seated need to help and maybe see life from someone else's perspective.

I worked in the community with people with severe physical disabilities. My job was to help them d o the simple things we abled body people take for granted. I have worked with people who were deaf, blind, cognitively impaired, amputees and those born with conditions like cerebral palsy just to name a few. 
The more time I spent with people with limiting abilities the more I questioned the haves and have nots of  life Why do some people have to suffer whilst others don't? Where would I find true compassion and where was the humanity in the world? I'm sure my endless questions, rages and tears must have left God exhausted.  read more click here
Poem of the Month
by Vicki Edwards

How can you?
How can we sell the sky
when it is within us?
How can we own
that which has always been given us?
Yes, Angel Being of Love as you are.
You span cosmos,
live inside Tree,
sprout with Water bubbling
and bouncing over Rock;
summon Eagle each breath taken.
Take your place Angel of Light,
take your ordained place
in full Sunshine,
brush up your heart in wine.
it is you I call,
you I am calling,
You of Sun Moon gathered
and Starry Night reflecting .
