The Year of “Being” Awake

Happy New Year!

I’m writing this Blog entry at 10am on Thursday, December 29th, 2005 during one of my “Wake Up Calls” while looking out at the ocean view from the Kingfisher Resort & Spa on Vancouver Island.

You may recall that my last Blog entry was about “You Need Two Wake Up Calls”.

Many accolades for the Kingfisher Resort & Spa! The attention to the detail, environment, facilities, food, service, staff where all absolutely amazing and we will be back.

Laura and I have been over on Vancouver Island since December 24th and we will return to Vancouver on January 1st, 2006.

During this time we have been visiting family, enjoying time together and enjoying time away from the city.

At the same time, I’ve been taking some of the time to catch up on my writing and to enhance my planning for 2006.

Following the notion of “Staying Awake” or “Wake Up Calls” –

It is the Unhealthy Primal Ego Mind that is addicted in all consuming thoughts that include;

– Am I safe?
– Am I good enough?
– What do I have to do next?
– Where do I have to go next?
– What do I have to buy next?
– Who is looking at me?
– What do people think of me?
– Does what I have compare to what others have?

– And on, and on, and on, and on, and on and -.

So as I work though my writing and planning, “I” am remembering to stop every so often to ask; “Am I Awake”?

It is important that I give my mind a rest from thinking for if “I” do not “I” can easily get consumed by the thought addiction of the Unhealthy Primal Ego Mind.

Thoughts that are related to thought addiction are based upon unmet needs, which trigger limiting beliefs and limiting emotions. It would stand to reason that vision, goals, projects and actions are doomed to failure because of what they are based upon.

In The Year of “Being” Awake “I” want my writing, planning and everything to be based upon conscious “Being”.

Conscious “Being” can be achieved by taking time between tasks to “Wake Up” and practice “No thought” or “No thing”. For some of you this can mean to “Know God” or “Know The Force”.

This way “I” can remind myself of my values, positive beliefs and positive feelings that are all “Being” related.
