On being a spiritual vessel
The thing about traveling to another land, another world, into vivifying vibrancy, is that there are specific preparations in order.
First, get in shape. The fat boy symbol points to physical condition. Treat your body as a ritual vessel, a containment field in which to receive and experience extraordinary gifts. If you are easily out of puff, get into shape. Breath, being the primary tool of journeyers, must fill and penetrate one’s physical being everywhere. Lumpatude is not conducive to the superior way.
Second, learn how to ask. Asking focusses energy on all levels. Keep it simple: a list of fifty requests with sub-clauses and conditions will not do. No whining; no privileged airs: sincerity, free from saccharine socially significant pleading, is best. In other words, drop the attitude. Simple asking cuts through difficulties, connecting hearts and minds such that spirit may sing.
Third, dress well, appropriately and with a sense of beauty. We do not speak here of haute couture or size zero desperations. Work with what you have. Use colour and flare to dress the vessel, for you are, and have always been, in direct and immediate communication with the world… an inter-species choral symphony awaits. If you desire to be reborn… to be more aware, alive, loved and loving… invoke your sense of beauty. Do not mow the lawn because the neighbours do. Set things in order because you care… with style, elegance, grace. When acting with care, all things are transformed and the vessel of human being is readied to meet with the powerful stranger.
Emotional and spiritual sensitivities excite a meeting place into which it is a good time to be launching. The Sun nears still point. Mercury, the messenger god and bestower of a thousand “Aha’s!”, reverses his course. Today, even a small commitment to yourself begins the journey that renews all things.
