Insight #65 ~ Zen Shredding…
December 4, 2009

 

It’s good to have boundaries.  

 

 Healthy boundaries support you in the expression of your authenticity. Setting a limit on what you accept or do not accept is simply a way of honoring your preferences for Being in the moment.  Learn to play safe by having and supporting your own healthy boundaries.

Extended commentary:

I cannot think of many strategies for creating a healthier lifestyle and the realization of fulfilling relationships than having healthy boundaries; by surrounding yourself with people who recognize and honor not only their boundaries, but also your own.  Clarifying and expressing your boundaries can be an important and meaningful step on the road to living an authentic life and the defined sense of self you take out into the world.

Throughout life, most discover the person they imagine themselves to be through multiple experiences and circumstances that reveal clues to the sense of self they want to be.  Boundaries are a foundational way of being that support the expression of who you are while on that journey called life.  They are expressions of the conscious and unconscious commitments or vows of internal allegiance that the “I” has made to itself at thinking, being, doing and having level.

As a tool for growth and expression, the process of unraveling or becoming aware of your personal boundaries (or lack thereof) ultimately can serve as a way to enhance the space and freedom for you to simply be.  Within this space or fertile field we can cultivate and elevate our sense of “I” ness; we can demonstrate with new behaviors how we take care of ourselves or not.  The conscious or unconscious presence or absence of boundaries essentially gives permission or “teaches” others, how they can treat us or not.

The irony of boundaries is that we all have them, the “good” and “bad”  make up essential components of the modus operandi of the “I” and how that “I” operates in the world. What is most important within this frame of reference is that we become aware of the boundaries ( the commitments and vows of allegiance that we have made to our selves about the “I”) that do not support our wellbeing or the wellbeing of others. 

Said another way; we likely treat ourselves and others, the way we were treated.  If that way of being is healthy and nurturing, our well-being and the well-being of others will be enhanced and elevated to new levels of experience.  If that way of being was or is unhealthy, our well-being and the well-being of others will be minimized and even dismissed however unconsciously, as unimportant.

Wrapped up in the stories we tell ourselves: about how we see ourselves and the world, about how we imagine the world see’s us, are the clues and gaps that serve as barriers to prevent a deeper experience of wellbeing; necessary ingredients that must be looked at, investigated, practiced or discarded, at all costs. 

In the process of the practiced realization of our essential boundaries, there may also come a time in the comfort and confidence of those established boundaries, that one realizes there are no boundaries; that they were simply a tool to nurture a sense of self through perceived obstacles and perceived growth; a point of realization is made that there was in fact no self that needed to be nurtured…

   

What boundaries do you need to honor in your life?

ZEN Shredding ~ Insight #20
October 29, 2008

 

Be gentle, be

effortless, and be easy.

 

 

Find the rhythm of your own life.  When you live according to your own rhythm you’ll also have connected to the greater universal rhythm.  Then your life will flow with effortless ease.  Be gentle in your mind, be effortless in your body, and be easy in your Spirit. 

 

Extended commentary:

 

It does not take a lot of awareness to become familiar with your personal modus operandi in life.  A quick innocent assessment on “how you do” life can reveal attitudes, approaches and ways of being that may or may not support, nurture and elevate the success you desire in your endeavors.

 

For most of us, it is clearly our conditioning that shapes the outcome of how and what we express and experience in life.  The touch taste and smell of our personal reality, is based on our subjective understanding of who we are and how we imagine life works; inevitably, it impacts who we will be and what we will do in life.

 

 As a result of conditioning, emphasis is placed primarily on the doing, rather than Being; while at all times, Being is the basis of doing.  Our external obsessions, our addictions, and our conditioning all contribute to ways of being that cater to results orientated, expression focus; what is going on “out there” is deemed more valuable than what is going on “in here.”

 

With our attention on expression much of what we do in fact is done very unconsciously, without awareness, with inattentiveness.  With a choice to change the direction of your attention from what you are doing to who you are Being; you ignite the fires of transformation to engulf your life; to spread rapid change in any and all directions.

   

 In the beginning it seems necessary to kindle the fires of transformation, to actively demonstrate a priority, significance and value in who we are Being, over what we are doing.  While expressed vigilance, ongoing commitment and discipline practice, appear to lend success in the breaking of the chains of our conditioning; often, it is in moments of allowing, and the presence of Being, that we cultivate the greatest recognition and realization of Who We Are.  This inevitably becomes the foundation and expression of who we will become…   

 

 

 

How can you be gentler, easier and more

effortless in your life?
