Living in Oneness

Driving with Awareness

BELOVEDS, Would like to take this moment to share with all of you .

 ONCE UPON A TIME DURING A DIKSHA EVENING!   

ONE FINE EVENING 3 LOVELY GALS were sharing how life had completely changed for ALL of them! (They had just attended a full weekend Diksha course all together)

 One was really enjoying being in quite a peak state but her mind would return occasionally VERY worried that her FUNCTIONAL STATE would NEVER return again (OH MY) & she asked me if she would ever be normal again???

 .......... meaning in her opinion.... normal was......for example to be interested in reading the instruction booklet for her new cell phone.....

 AS NOW... she certainly wouldn't and really couldnít imagine even considering it!

Before her NEWFOUND bliss state, she would of memorized the entire thing cover to cover!!

I hesitantly and regretfully explained to her, "That in fact it was VERY likely that this instruction booklet interest will most possibly NEVER return!"

And I laughed (out loud) as I watched the worried look on her face intensify.....

I was only just kidding ,of course! Oh how I LOVE SO MUCH to PLAY .......With the CRAZY MIND!!!!  And it started a really interesting conversation amongst the group as they all began to contemplate and discuss ....

WHAT EXACTLY IS IMPORTANT in one's daily life

Being in bliss & at peace with all that is....

Or reading the instruction booklet for your CELL PHONE???  I shared with them that I personally NEVER ever read ANY of those booklets!

 I thought it must be a man's thing to be interested in the mechanics of HOW EXACTLY things function....

I just always intuitively feel .....and just know....... somehow how everything operates..........

Even if itís something I've never encountered before in my life..

Within a few minutes of experiencing it,  I am familiar with how it functions...

And you know something BELOVEDS???????????

I NEVER REALLY REALIZED THAT ABOUT MYSELF UNTIL THAT VERY MOMENT!  IN SHARING THE EXPERIENCE OF THE WAY THAT I HAVE ALWAYS JUST DONE THAT!  INTERESTING HOW WHEN YOU JUST LIVE........ THINGS...... YOU DON'T REALIZE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT (WEIRD?) FROM THE
NORM....................
 
To give you 1 long example.........HERE WE GO....

 FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT..........................

When Iím traveling around the world...... which has really been A HABIT for most of my life, I actually LOOK FORWARD to not knowing what adventure is around the next corner.........!

And there is ALWAYS one there just waiting to be experienced!!!!!

Like getting EXCITED each time I rent a new car!

In most cities of the world I need to rent a car to get around!

(or like a motor home in New Zealand) then, you have a WHOLE new house on wheels to investigate!  Great fun!!

SO....you are just handed the vehicle's keys at the rental desk inside the office or airport & given the number of the parking space to search for outside... that is painted on the ground under the car , located in the car rental parking lot.
It's Sayonara & Good Luck on your journey!

And each vehicle is SO DIFFERENT!

One has to learn what each individual vehicle offers & where all buttons & gadgets are located & what each button is made for! What fun!!

And if it is a 5 speed or a 4 speed or an automatic!  And each of the 4 or 5 speeds have their own individual idiosyncrasies with the gears & especially the reverse gears !

Sometimes needing you to push the gear lever DOWN & FORWARD to go into reverse!  And others you need to LIFT some secret small round rubber ring UP & push it BACKWARDS!

Sometimes you have to LIFT UP the ring & PUSH DOWN on the LEVER.... all at the same time!

And THEN push forwards or backwards!  AND ALL THIS  just to go into reverse!!!!

Are you getting a picture yet?

And of course, these instructions are NEVER explained anywhere in the car! 

(MAYBE IN THAT HANDY INSTRUCTION BOOKLET THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN!! but probably not...who knows..??..MEN???)
So sometimes it has taken a whole minute to figure out ALL THE DETAILS the very 1st time!


Some have the reverse on the LEFT side & up or down of the 4 gears  & others have them on the RIGHT side & back!   

And IMAGINE you have to remember ALL this stuff in each moment!

As you are driving!

Itís a REAL lesson in awareness!!!!!

I donít know how people can survive LIVING in semi-unconsciousness!  I wouldn't last even 1 minute!!

You leave one city, and country just when you THINK you have it ALL figured out!!  And you move on to another...... the following day or week...... & it ALL changes!
Like when in England, Australia, & India & need to DRIVE on the OTHER side of the road.....TOO!!!

THAT'S REALLY FUN!!!

EVERYTHING is absolutely BACKWARDS in the gears!

And you have to learn how to do it ALL with THE LEFT HAND instead of the RIGHT!

Itís like learning to write again but using your left hand this time!!!  Imagine! NOT easy!!!  (ONLY FOR LEFTIES!!)

But it has to be done!  Ya GOTTA JUST DO IT!!

IF YOU ARE TRAVELING ALONE LIKE I ALWAYS AM....
 
And then OH I ALMOST FORGOT!!...... that the steering wheel is on THE OTHER SIDE TOO!

And you also have to enter the car on the passenger side to DRIVE IT!!  Thatís really weird!

My friends (familiar with this difference ) living in the different parts of the world LOVE to tease me as I go to the WRONG side of the car to get in many times as their passenger & they say to me,  "ALEXIS,  What's up? Do YOU want to drive??  Get to the other side of the car, SILLY GIRL!"  And they LAUGH!!!AT ME!!!!

Itís NOT easy to remember EVERYTHING ALL the time!!

Iím SURE many people would be FREAKED OUT & BARF (that one is for you my dear friend Freddy)

NEW AMERICAN JARGON FOR HIM... at the thought of having to encounter ALL these differences!
(Freddy, Giving you something to look forward to as you contemplate getting your driverís license in the U.S.!!)

My advice to you is just learn ONE WAY like driving on the RIGHT side of the road & when you end up in countries where itís the opposite,  hire a driver!)

I have to admit SOMETIMES (itís happened about 4 or 5 times) Iíve had to stop THE CAR coming out of a SIDE ROAD as I drew a MIND BLANK & forgot which country I was in or which side of the road I was to be driving on...

So I just sat there; patiently waiting, til a car comes by ...observing which side of the road I was supposed to be on!

In Australia, out of the city, that can take some time, waiting for other cars!!!  As Kangaroos pass by MORE often then cars!!!   But its REALLY NOT a TINY MINOR SILLY DETAIL.......this left or right side stuff....if you guess wrong..........You may END UP SERIOUSLY SQUISHED!!!!

Your little measly suffering life (as it is in many cases) is SNUFFED out right there SPANKY!!!!!

Head on collisions tend to leave people pretty squished up!  So I just wait PATIENTLY..........................on the side of the road.............til I figure it out!!

OH! And another minor hiccup THAT CAN REALLY GET YOUR KNICKERS IN A TWIST.. are a simple fact that the newer cars of the last years wonít even let you remove the key from the steering wheel without first finding the SECRET button to push or pull OR...special way to turn the key or lever to pull down or push up before you can even get OUT of the car!!!!  WITH YOUR KEYS!!!

That one has kept me captive sometimes for quite some MOMENTS before I found the secret code of each situation that warrants escaping from THAT TRAP!!!!

I guess with ALL this information I could NOW be a GOOD CAR THIEF.....................
I could make a quick, smooth getaway in each instance!
So thanks for letting me share all that very INTERESTING information that will prove to be very useful / useless for MANY of you and especially Freddy in years to come!!!

So ANYWAY......
Back to this evening DIKSHA group.....

we were speaking about how knowledge comes from the mind..........& WISDOM is more source or soul based................INTUITION???

anyway...................Nice evening!  Beautiful group!  Everyone left completely out of their heads though!

Thanks to Amma & Bhagavan!

Every time the participants come up to me after, to thank me so lovingly.... I just point to Amma & Bhagavanīs Large Sri Murti & say, "Thank them, they are the ones who gave you the gift of Divine Grace!"

What a great job!  What else is there? Love, ONLY LOVE, SWEET LOVE

Iím singing. Can you hear me????

By the way, to share a VERY deep spiritual desire of mine now, I wish I had some GLOGG!!!!

But itís ONLY available in SWEDEN!!!!  And itís NOT conveniently located around the corner to jog down & buy a bottle now is it?  I had a bottle in my motor home when I went away to the beach the last time for 4 days & I drank it ALL up in one nite!  Itís much better then tea or hot chocolate!The NON-Alcoholic one, of course!!

Iím already completely HIGH on life!  And always was! EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER!!!

I THOUGHT IT WAS NORMAL to be SO HAPPY!!!!  I never understood why people enjoyed intoxicating themselves SO MUCH!

Life is so beautiful! Why escape from it?

Oh well......I guess everyone has their own reasons....

In my opinion (whatever that is worth) it just makes you tired, sleepy and then you wake up with a screaming headache!!  At least that was my DRUNK experience when I was about 14!

And yes I even looked more like the color green! 

I'M WILLING TO OFFER TO PERSONALLY INTRODUCE EVERYONE THAT I MEET TO THE EST NATURAL HIGH THAT ONE COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE!! 

AND THE HANGOVERS ARE PURE BLISS, NO ASPIRIN NEEDED!!

IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND TRANSFORM YOUR SUFFERING INTO HEAVEN!

BUT OF COURSE ONLY WHEN YOU ARE READY.....BE SURE TO WATCH THE RESISTANCE OF THE EGO

AND WHEN IT'S NOT LOOKING...

RUN DOWN TO YOUR NEAREST LOCAL DIKSHA GROUP FOR THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!!

And if I'm there... and you know what GLOGG is,  please do bring me a bottle!! (Any Swedes here reading?)

AND FEEL FREE TO WRITE ME AFTER... & LET ME KNOW HOW IT WAS FOR YOU...

BIG BIG HUGS from the corners of my Heart  to all of yours and all of you Divine Light Beings that I have yet to meet personally. 

In deep love and gratitude to Amma & Bhagavan,

Love & Light**
