A Unique Discovery About Running As It Relates To Our Transition Into This New World

“Baby, this town rips the bones from your back; it’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap…”

~ Bruce Springsteen, “Born To Run”

 I just recently finished a book of fiction called “The Illegal” by award-winning International Best Selling Author, Lawrence Hill. It was an epic adventure and fast-moving read about a runner from a poor nation who, because of his country’s politics, discovered he must run to save his family.

Which of course made me think of another mind-blowing true tale about running called “Born To Run” by Christopher McDougall, an award-winning journalist and runner who asked a simple question “Why does my foot hurt?” He set out to discover the secrets of an indigenous tribe in Mexico who have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. What he uncovered was the greatest race the world has never seen.

Now why did these two completely different stories about marathon runners take me on an epic journey that read like a sprint? And why, on these heart-pounding races did it pierce my soul to such a degree?

You see, what I came to understand was that we all have put blinders on the effect of our own misuse of energy.

And, by energy I not only refer to the technologies that we have employed to enhance our lifestyles. I’m not only talking about the damage that is being done to our environment here on Mother Earth, nor the corrosion to the physical structure of the DNA within each one of us. I’m not only speaking of the information manipulation that takes place in all of our main stream media as a method of mind control.

No, the epiphany I had was how we have been totally misusing our emotional energy on this planet! How we have come to view our emotional body as our weakness or “Achilles Heel,” so to speak…that for many of us our emotional body was something to almost get rid of.

This realization of what we have been doing, or, more importantly what we have not been doing…BLEW. MY. MIND.

Our emotions are not energies to be ignored or subdued. They are not energies to be mistrusted or abandoned.

Our emotional body is our true birthright and a great gift! Only we’ve been shutting it down on a daily basis by denying it. We have attempted to override our emotions with the mind, forgetting that our emotions are the conduit to our hearts and souls.

We made a huge mistake when we erroneously believed that we could retreat from our hearts and from all that made us human. We made a huge mistake by trying to bring ourselves to a state of intellectual superiority believing that would make us more than human.

No, our emotions are not energies to be ignored or subdued. What we express through our emotional bodies is the connection that exists between the physical and the etheric…between body and spirit.

Only through the full acceptance of our total emotional selves, in regard to one and to all, can we look again into our souls and realize this as Truth.

So, let us reach out through our emotions, to the plight of the unseen and the forgotten who live among us. Let us touch the world…so that we are not running for our lives but, to our lives.

Cuz….BABY, WE WERE BORN TO RUN.

A Heartwarming Tale Of Good Business: How 5 Minutes Grew My Heart Three Sizes That Day

Ugh. Tires. I had to get ’em. From my point of view, there is nothing sexy about tires! But, I needed them. Desperately. Steel was beginning to show through my radials. A number of people were telling me this.

And, so it was with tires in mind, on that bleak, blustery, dreary day at the end of November that I walked into a Tire Centre only to have my life forever changed by the experience!

I haggled with the owner about what kind of tires I needed. I was adamant that I wanted this certain kind of tire. He was recommending another. I listened to his suggestions and we struck a deal. After all, he was the expert on tires. And, then I sat down to wait… and wait… and wait.

After an indeterminable length of time (it seemed like hours), I was told that my car was ready. It was at that point where the story got really interesting…

I went over to the counter to get the “damage statement”. It was then that I was told, by the owner, that there would be no charge. What??!! NO CHARGE! Were my ears deceiving me?!!

I asked, “Pardon?” somewhat incredulously. My guess was he was trying to keep it on the low. The place was crawling with people waiting for their cars to be finished. Frustrated that I needed to be told again, he stated impatiently “Will this help you?” I emphatically replied “Why, yes!”

It was then he said these words: “Well, then. Merry Christmas.”

He sent me on my way. Stunned, I turned and very cautiously walked out the door. I could have heard a pin drop. It was as if everything in my world had become suddenly hushed and reduced to slow motion. It was a very surreal experience for me. I can still remember it as if it happened yesterday.

I crept back to my car, scared witless that my bubble would burst and I would awaken to this being an insane dream. I put the keys in the ignition, backed the car out of that Tire Centre afraid to disturb or interrupt this beautiful moment, and I began to drive down the street. It was only when I had gone 200 yards, that my senses began to return, a rush of blood flooded into my head, and I started adding up what just happened. I mean, literally added everything up!

Something that I should have been charged over $1,200.00, cost me nothing! I burst into tears.

Who, in this day and age would do something as astounding as that??!!! Who was this guy? Some kind of Earth Angel?

My life had already become topsy-turvy. This random act of kindness just spun it out of control.

And then it dawned on me. The path I had recently chosen to take, the journey that I was now embarking on… that of inspiring others to do the things that inspire them, well, this was a very obvious affirmation to me that I was on the right path. I got it! I really, really got it! Those tires I received actually eased the bumpy road I was travelling on.

When you change the focus from getting to giving… putting other peoples’ interests first and truly adding value to their lives, well that leads to unexpected returns.

That kind man received more business through his generosity to me than thousands of marketing dollars could ever have hoped to achieve. It brings new meaning to the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”

 

Your Emotions – Tip #20

 

Your emotions are by far the most sophisticated of vibrational interpreters. Pay attention to the way you feel by observing instead of succumbing to the emotion.

Your Internal Guidance System – Tip #18

 

Every time you make an effort to connect with your breath, it will give you something more.  And you will begin to understand its power.  As your memory awakens to the powerful laws of the Universe, so will your naturally joyful zest for life return.  Your emotions can help you identify anything in your body that is out of sinc, or where you may be feeling anxiety or discord.
