Fearless Chiro

Fall is here.  The trees are beginning to show color and the air is crisp in the morning.  I love it!  My favorite time of year!

An interesting observation came to me a couple of days ago.  I was with a couple of friends at the gun range.  We were there to sight in our rifles for the upcoming deer season.  While I am not much of a hunter, I have enjoyed the last two big game seasons…a chance to get out into the hills, tramp up and over the ridges and see the sights.  And a bit of venison for the freezer is quite a bonus!  It also has the effect of reminding me of my place in the food chain in a way that you can’t quite appreciate at the meat counter in Safeway or Kroger…

We had put up our targets at the 100 yard distance and I was ready to take my first shot.  I felt good as I squeezed the trigger and felt the firm impact of the stock against my shoulder.  Then my friend Greg, a few feet away with the sighting scope, says….”hey Doc!  You missed the paper (target) entirely!”  Wow!  How is that possible.  My intention was there….I was present….but somehow I had missed my target!

I shot a couple more rounds, one low a few inches, the other high and left.  My ego had been challenged and I was determined to rise to the top of the pack again! 

The range attendant called ‘cold range’ and we walked out to our targets.  What I found was very interesting and sparked a powerful analogy that I am sure will stay with me the rest of my life. 

I had not missed the paper.  The target is a piece of heavy construciton weight paper about 20 inches or so square with several increasingly small concentric circles ending up in a center target about the size of a coffee mug rim.  At the very center of the entire target is a black dot a bit smaller than a dime.  My first shot had not missed.  In fact I had struck the black dot so perfectly, I could not discern any variance from the exact center.  It could not be seen with the spotting scope, let alone the naked eye.

This lesson and analogy struck me.  Before we engage doubt and the fear mind we operate from our highest and most True Self.  I had not, with my first shot, gone into agreement with doubt and fear (fear of not being ‘good enough’ or whatever my ego had grasped on to).  I was in the non-thinking ‘zone’ if you will…that place where the fear mind is quiet and action is initiated and carried out with purest intention….unpolluted with fear and doubt.

My highest result is the end effect of clear intention, unemcumbered by doubt.  I remember the counsel given in National Board reveiws so many years ago…”go with your first guess…do NOT go back and correct it”….

Learn to trust your Self and keep the self quiet….

Good counsel….

IN-JOY your Fall! (the season that is!)

I love bees…of course I am enamored by anything that flys…and then there is the honey!  I have an incredible sweet tooth!

My thoughts in my early morning walk yesterday turned to bees.  And thinking of the word “bee” led my thoughts to the concept of ‘being’ vs. ‘doing’.  With so much of my time spent of late defending my ‘doing-ness’, I was eager to contemplate deeper the virture of ‘being’.

The worker bee is born for one purpose: Doing.  He ‘does’ till he ‘dies’….that’s it.  How much of my life has been at the unconscious level of doing, forgetting my innate ‘being-ness’?  Sadly, far too much could be categorized in the column of the former.  Now of course the analogy with our bee friends starts to break down pretty fast.  We are priveleged (or is that cursed?) with the asset of consciousness that bees do not have.  Although they are innately connected and amazing creatures, they do not have the ‘choice’ of identifying with a ‘do’ based expression of life at the expense of their being.  They just ‘are’.  We humans are blessed (and quite often challenged) with the further distinction of ‘out-doing’ ourSelves.

This week I am blessed and grateful for the awareness that my true BE-ingness is not connected to my ‘do’-ing.  I will accept the pauses in my life, great and small, and move forward with powerful decisiveness when it is appropriately called for.

BEE IN JOY TODAY!
