Sittin’ here in my car…..

Here in my neck of the woods, in Florida, so far, you can still get coffee and food to go at most restaurants.  It’s not the same as sitting down inside one of these places, and enjoying a dining experience along with other humans, but for now, it works.

I am able to sip a nice hot dark roast coffee in the morning, even if I have to sit in my car.  The act of getting out like this seems to satisfy something primal.  Maybe it’s that sense of community, of being a part of this crazy mixed-up world.

Who knows?  But it made me realize that we are not here to go to a mountaintop and ohm for days or years on end.  We, and I mean our soul, enjoys being here like it’s never been able to before.

To be able to partake in all that life has to offer.  Whether it’s a good cup of joe, or a nicely prepared meal, and I mean prepared by someone else.  Where you can be served, and you don’t have to clean up after yourself.

I hear conversations around me about how to get more healthy.  What foods and supplements are the best for health and vitality.  I see people jogging, going to the gym, and trying to find ways to extend their life.

But I have to wonder, why aren’t they having conversations about how to actually enjoy life?

People go to all kinds of therapy, take medicines and medications, get operations, and it seems to keep them going, but to what end?

They seem to be living in a kind of grayness.

They talk about pursuing careers that would be the most financially secure, but I don’t hear much about how they want to create something that would make their heart sing.

Even many in the metaphysical world, the new age, or spiritual, or esoteric, are most concerned about the planet, and how to help mankind.  I don’t hear much conversations there about how delicious this time/space reality is, and what they are experiencing on a sensual level.

While many would probably disagree, our soul is simple.  It wants to just experience life here with us, without all of the stuff the mind believes is important.  Whether that’s to help save the planet, or to prolong our life with diet and exercise regimes.

It’s really just interested in tasting that glass of wine, going for the walk in nature, having that ice cream cone, sitting with other humans and just being.  No lofty plans or goals.  No pursuing anything just for the sake of security.

Not trying to prove anything to anyone.

Seems a little crazy from the human’s perspective.  But it is that simple.  And the mind doesn’t trust that perspective.  It has to ask, “What’s the point of just being and enjoying life?  Shouldn’t there be more?  What about the state of the world, of the governments, of the environment?  What about my own survival? I have all these needs.  I’m not exactly low maintenance.  

I mean, look Soul, there are just too many moving parts!”

And our Soul is saying,  “Just chill..  Just give it a rest, dear human!  With all that thinking just now, you missed it.  There was a beautiful cloud formation and you were so distracted you didn’t even see it,”

And, the funny thing is, our Soul created that cloud formation.  Oh, well, maybe next time.

But from our Soul’s perspective, this environment is teeming with sensual stimuli.  The sounds, sights, smells, textures, tastes, with both human and esoteric senses combined.  It’s a virtual candy shop of pleasures for our soul, and for the human if they are willing to open up to it.

When I am in that space, even the sound of the engine running in the car next to mine is pleasant.  It doesn’t have to just be organic pleasures.  There are many, many man-made ones to enjoy.

Even all the so-called imperfections are perfect.  Many experiences can become joyful that were just mundane to the human.

If we want to embody our Soul here, it does require we indulge daily in being sensual, whatever that may mean to each of us.  Not to overthink it, but to invite our Soul in as much as possible in our daily routine, and see where it goes.  It will probably go to more experiences that are pleasurable, and not obligatory in nature.

So prepare for some resistance from the mind.  It will feel a little indulgent to spend a lot of your day in things that bring you pleasure.  It may even feel selfish!  Get used to it.

And, for the most part I know I’m preaching to the choir, because those reading this and who resonate with this material are well into self and are finding the joy.  And, they know that it is their gift to this planet and to all that is.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Almost a decade later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Yeah Maria, I get that feeling of dining in and enjoying a cuppa.
    Over here in my home country, our lockdown started mid March and now extended another 2 weeks.

    There’s a cafe here which I frequent almost weekly for their spaghetti and my favourite Americano.
    Dining in, I love that feeling of sitting in a corner, at a high table and bar stool, while slowly savoring my food and cuppa.. with ear plugs on, listening to music, watching YouTube or reading.. Kinda in my own world 🎧🎶☕😉

    For now, I will need to recreate that “similar feeling” of enjoyment in the solitude of my Home 🏡❤️

    • Mmmm, I.S., you had me at ‘spaghetti’…..

      It sounds delightful! And, like me, and many of us, you can be in the room with others, yet enjoy your own company.

      I’m sure we will appreciate our dine-in places all the more when they reopen. ☕️🍸🍷🍺🍕🍨

  2. Thank you dear SiSTAR for this message.

    This particularly resonated with me: “If we want to embody our Soul here, it does require we indulge daily in being sensual, whatever that may mean to each of us. Not to overthink it, but to invite our Soul in as much as possible in our daily routine, and see where it goes. It will probably go to more experiences that are pleasurable, and not obligatory in nature.

    So prepare for some resistance from the mind. It will feel a little indulgent to spend a lot of your day in things that bring you pleasure. It may even feel selfish! Get used to it.”

    I slept until 9 this morning which my dear hubby has been encouraging me to do, or at least he is encouraging me to do whatever I want, no timelines, no pressure to get anything done. He is so smart. WE are retired and he keeps saying to me, We are always on vacation.

    When I got up my soul knew that was what was needed for me. So, my mind is still fighting it a bit. 🙂

    And this time right now, Corona Time, has been absolutely blissful for me. I LOVE being at home. I love having my own time in my own way. I love getting up and sitting in my chair looking out the window, meditating or reading or checking the internet. It is all great!

    When I catch my mind laying a trip on me about xxxx, if I pause and listen, I can hear my soul. How about that?

    For years we lightworkers have been trying to get there, but really it is HERE. hahaha

    “If it brings me joy, have at it”, my soul says. My mind sometimes says, “what did you produce? Who did you help?” So I think my soul has to tell my mind to shut the FxxK up. 🙂 In a beautiful and honoring kind of way, right??!! Now I’m laughing.

    Thanks for this. I’m with you in spirit on a walk or having a cup of joe in your car.

    love you and loving us all…..even that silly mind of mine.

    • You crack me up dear siSTAR! I love how You cut to the chase, about our soul telling the mind to shut the fuck up! Haha. Sometimes it is required. Especially if being gentle doesn’t work.

      And it’s funny how you say, ‘Corona Time’ …I’m imagining a person laying on the beach, opening up a cold beer and raising it to the sky.

      But really, this Corona Time can be the best time for us, right? It’s all in our perspective.

      Love you my dear Elizabeth. Thanks for sharing your experiences. And I’m so glad Jim reminds you to just relax, 🤙❤️

      • Chuckling. Giggling. Chortling. Snorting.

        A couple of weeks ago I had to do a zoom meeting and I still wasn’t talking much. Talking was leading directly to coughing.

        So, I was sitting upstairs and pretty soon Jim comes up with a little sign for me that says, “shut the fuck up!” He makes me laugh so so much. And I KNOW that he meant it in the most loving of ways. 🙂🙂🙂🙂♥️♥️♥️♥️ I was clearly talking too much. Ha!

        That man keeps me sane and keeps me laughing. In Corona times and at all times. 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍷🍷🍷🍷🥂🥂🥂🥂

        Thanks dearest Sistar!
        Love you tons!

        • So, if talking leads to coughing….can we name that syndrome, ‘TAUGHING?’ And we can make cough drops called TAUGH DROPS.

          No? Too much time on my hands?

          • Taughter is the best medicine. 😆❤️

          • I taughing and taughing and taughing…..

            🙂🙂🙂🙂♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🍞🍞🍞🎶🎶🎶🎶🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🍷🍺🍷🍺🍷🍺🍷🍺🥂🥂🥂🥂♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️💐💐💐💐💐💐🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝☮️☮️☮️☮️☮️☮️
