March 30, 2010 | Revealing The Concealed
When I woke up and checked my meditation for the day, I wondered if perhaps the cat had come around to help me with meditation No. 42; “Revealing The Concealed” – I gather the ability to bring forth the powers of observation to see the truth…and the courage to handle it!
I had been trying to unravel a lot of my most essential truths while taking this journey, but it hadn’t been easy. Certain truths could exist on many different levels. Before I attempted to expose a few of my revelations, I set out for another bike ride.
My RV park was on Barton Springs Road. I wanted to explore the western end of the road, so I headed towards Barton Springs Park. Within three minutes of leaving my RV park, I came upon a bridge that overlooked a river that was the runoff of Barton Springs. If Austin had anything on Portland, it was the fact that some of their downtown rivers were very clear and clean, especially this one.
After I crossed the bridge, I circled under and continued south on the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trail, until I came to the Barton Springs Pool. I was excited to find that they had damned up the springs to create a natural body of water for swimming. It was gorgeous. “Three acres in size, the pool is fed from underground springs and is on average 68 degrees year round.” – Source
After I explored the springs, I turned my bike around and headed north on the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trail, until I merged onto the Lady Bird Lake Trail. I came to a nice resting place and decided to sit by the water for a moment of relaxation and meditation.
While I was sitting by the river, a beautiful, white dove landed in the tree next to me. It looked directly at me and allowed me to take its picture.
The fact that it was white symbolized purification. It was precisely the message I was looking for before sharing some of my truths.
I returned to my RV park sometime later to spend the afternoon “Revealing the Concealed” and added the following personal truths about my thoughts and my journey:
- To me, the concept of Jesus Christ was the star of Unconditional Love and light that shines down on all of us. Regardless of one’s religious beliefs or spiritual practice, it’s what we did with that love that mattered most
- My second truth was that after working at a telecommuting job for three and a half years, I had a tough time coming to terms with the possibility of having to return to an office environment. I didn’t want to be stuck working in a cubicle surrounded by people trying to climb over one another to get to the top. The thought of working in that type of environment made me very unhappy, and I was too old to do something that rendered me miserable. This journey was my way of reaching out to my God (Myself?) and saying, “I’ve paid my dues. It’s time to cash in all of my chips. I’m ready for something more meaningful and rewarding. Show me! Bring it on!”
- My third truth was that I was doing what I wanted to do with my life during this journey. As unconventional and irresponsible as it appeared on the surface, and aside from the fact that I was running out of money, my mission was my soul’s way of expressing pure joy and happiness. It wasn’t a vacation. In fact, the work involved was much more difficult than the job that I gave up. The thought of it coming to an end bothered me, however, but I hoped that before it did, a new passageway would open up in the universe that would allow me to continue to express myself truthfully and honestly through my creativity.
- My fourth truth was that I loved my family very, very much, and that’s all I had to say about that.
- My fifth truth was that the last two nights of sleeping in the back of my truck were some of the most peaceful, comfortable nights of my entire journey.
- The sixth truth was that I had only revealed the positive experiences with other souls in this journey. I decided before I began to stay away from any negativity and to be non-judgmental.
- And my last truth, for the time being, was that regardless of how this journey ended, I was grateful for the time, good health and unconditional offerings from others.
That evening I got together with my two new friends in the RV park, and we grilled out chicken, asparagus and had snow peas and rice. Everything was quite delicious and very filling.
The three of us connected so quickly and honestly. I felt as though we had been friends for a very long time. We enjoyed each other’s company.
My neighbor from across the street decided to go to be early. My new female friend asked me if I would be interested in pulling some more cards for her. We returned to her RV to do another reading and to clarify some things that took place during our first reading. (See Day 40)
This time I pulled out the 72 Names of God meditation cards and two other decks that I used periodically. In our first reading, we learned that she too was the “Magician,” so it was no mystery that she would eventually connect with a particular deck of cards. She took one look at my Psychic Deck and fell in love with the cards immediately. We then played a game of question and answer and learned that she was supposed to have the cards. They belonged to her. At that point, I gifted them over to her to use as she liked. She became very excited. I gave her some basic instructions on how to ground herself and meditate before using them, and then told her to experiment, experiment, experiment. The primary purpose was to have fun.
She thanked me for the deck of cards and in turn gave me a container of mango flavored coconut water, which was tasty.
I went to bed shortly afterward, realizing that it would possibly be my last night in Austin.
