Day 24: The Sacrifice of The Humble Potato
Day 4 of Alchemy 4 Success from Commonworks organic farm, Bore Place, Edenbridge, Kent. William Whitecloud continues to reveal alchemical tools for our kit bags. There is an ease and a simplicity to these tools that belie their power and the focus that is required to wield them. These are tools that change the lead of our egos to the gold of our hearts but in very practical terms deliver a tangible reality and end results that are aligned with our souls. We are learning that our concept of life, our perception is a defense against the truth which keeps us separate from our hearts and what we love. Like the mists of Avalon perception is pervasive, invasive, seductive and delusional, it is the water we swim in, everywhere and invisible to us. It is futile to try and des rid of the mists we can but orientate in the dark to the beacons of our true end results of our souls. We are learning how to create and discern true end results from false end results and with the help of a straw and a potato we experience a microcosm of learning.
Try this for yourself – get a big fat raw potato and a plastic straw. Now IMAGINE the straw through the potato – not so much the process of putting the straw through the potato but the fact that it is already there. Keep imagining this and take the obvious action to make this into a reality. Could you do it? If not what did you experience while you were trying and afterwards? Observe your thoughts and now REIMAGINE the straw through the potato. You may need to go around a few times to work your imagination muscle but it is possible to do this. The learning on the way will show you how you approach creating the things you love in your life. Do you just fantasise and not actually go for them? Do you get angry and give you, do you get determined and try harder? Remember this is an exercise in IMAGINING the end result has already happened and keep imagining it until you have take the action to make that happen. There are no other tricks to this.
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
