Peace, Contentment, and Enlightenment  
So I woke up this morning feeling a little bit more awake as Nik (eleventyseven) graciously shared a scrumptious breakfast of pancakes, coffee and yogurt with grapes.  Delicious.  After grubbing on some huge flapjacks, Nik started drumming away.  I sat back and observed.  Listening to the vibrations, watching the motions, and reminiscing on recent days.  The last two weeks have really opened my eyes wider than ever before.  I feel more aware, more real.  A bi product of this realism being a strange sort of contentment.  The days are the same as they've always been, but now, I move to the beat of my own drum.  I feel relaxed, refreshed, and ready to challenge the realms of reality.

I flow with a new stream of coherency which spawned on the day my great friend Dan ([info]fortifiedi ) and is new perfect partner Sheryl (clocktrivia).  I spent that day feeling the best I had in months.  A peak of certain emotions I hadn't felt for quite a time.  I was surrounded by really great people.

So I stood in the back room of their home, staring out into the great wide open.  The sun pored through the branches.  The weather was perfect;  calm air, blue sky, shinning sun.  I thought to myself how amazing it was that I ended up here.  Everything else seemed trivial.  These days are few and far between I thought.  These are the days we strive for.  To be invited to share this day with someone else I will forever cherish.

So I meditated that day, on the floor, listening to an amazing group of musicians;  Jello Slave.  That was the first day in my life that I felt I could let go and quoting a great prophet and musician, "I've been flying ever since".  I felt free of time, free of worry, free of restraint.  I spent the rest of that day living by the the words yet another amigo, Andrew L, shared with me "Live Sensationally".

Now moving away from that day was hard.  The next day was definitly a challenge of great proportion.  And I knew that evening that I would have to meditate hard and long.  Never will I run from the evils.  I sat and I focused on my feelings.  I walked through the list of emotions I had remembered and I thought about them.  I thought about them in as exactly what they were as emotions, chemical reactions, mental processes.  Important indeed, but manifested and controllable.  Content once again.  Empowered by something I had never understood about myself.

So day three in this series I spent reflecting on the yin and yang that I had experienced.  That course of events taught me how wide the threshold can be in such a short period of time.  And again, I felt content.

Now, I couldn't just proceed with my days as I had before.  Trying relentlessly to saturate.  Now I had realized something that I will never forget.  I realized balance.  I realized how to guide before I step.  I realized what trusting my intuition was doing.  I realized how to let go and how to take control.  When to ride and when to guide.

Realizing this pushed me to learn.  So days I spent researching.  Researching everything I could imagine.  Keyword in that sentence is imagine.  The spawn of new knowledge.  Guided by what I was now beginning to see.  Not understand but to see.  That there are things we do every day, every millisecond that happen for a reason.  What that reason I don't think we'll ever know.  But what I do know, is that it ties us all together.  It ties us together with each other and with nature.  The reality is that we are all one.

I researched secrets, society, culture, color, symbols, language, math, science, religion.  Those days I built the largest mindmap I have ever created, so perfect for it to be within the freemind.  I would research, and then I would imagine.  I would meditate to lift my mind away from boundaries and to realize these things I had researched.  To put myself in other shoes, to focus in different light, or no light at all.  I found that my mind could do some things that I had so many days ignored.  I'm sure it's always been able, I just wasn't ready and willing. 

So before I ramble too far.  I need to make my point.  Through these experiences, I confirmed something to myself that had been brewing amongst my friends for weeks.  The idea to travel and the share.  The idea to experience as much as possible, and to threw experience to chose to the best of our abilities.  The take the concepts that we have forged through hundreds of hours of imagination and testing.  To not only take Blab-lab mobile.  But to minimize ourselves down to the level of least burden and most imagination.  To take the ideas that hundreds of others I'm sure share, and to render them a reality.  As one believes they will become.  And this day I will tell you that there is hope.  And we will be one of many spreading the word of this hope.  Not forcing it, not throwing it, but sharing it.  Via collaboration and creation.  Creating things that have never been seen.

I want all of my friends to know.  That this day is a good day, and no matter what happens as we embark upon the world as journeypersons, everything is always the same.  We are all one and we are all connected.  We are free.

Last, I will be enabling us with some powerful tools to realize these dreams.  We will need to share our knowledge through the most powerful tool of our existence, communication.  We will tap the languages of the ears eyes and fingers.  And we will help others in their own quest.

Today is a great day.  And I am ready.  Thank you all.

Namaste,

Nick
