What is Your Place in the World?

What is Your Place in the World?

By Amba Gale

“What is your place in the world?” is, perhaps, one of the most fundamental questions we can address, always. A question asked by poets, thinkers, philosophers, thinkers, theologians, during all times, this question begs to be addressed particularly during this time, as the ground is shaking every day, where there is no shoreline to mark our way, where the external circumstances, ever changing, do not provide us with any information about who WE were born to be.

When we connect with our Selves, at our core, when we discern our own unique thread, we are able to make choices in life that are given by our own integrity, our own underlying, deep authenticity, that deep river of sourcefulness that runs beneath the surface of our everyday life. Living our lives out of our hearts, out of what gives us meaning, of belonging to the world in the particular way we were made to belong, allows for a great deal of resolution to the existential or spiritual dilemma, at any time.

For most of us now, during this Great Threshold Crossing we are all taking, the universe is asking of us, begging of us, to address this question, to shed the skin that is now dead and no longer appropriate to be wearing, and to take some deep dives into the questions, what is my calling? What gives me joy? What does the future want me for? What is my purpose on the planet? What is my place in the world?

The Joy of Being

Whale Breaching

This fog filled morning

the bright lights of our family room

illuminate the whale.

Leaping with joy, he flies

Up

Up

Up

he flies

beyond the froth,

far above the hills.

Eyes open wide,

he smiles,

joyous,

wondering,

celebrating the glory of being alive,

his great flippers just like wings

as he propels

himself toward the sky,

and then, married to gravity, falls

to the depths of the sea

with sheer abandon,

announcing his place in the world.

The Gift of Alert Awareness

We are all human. Very human. And we are all imperfect, very imperfect. In fact, perfectly imperfect. Our very humanity, our very imperfections, our very wounds and vulnerabilities, flailings and failings, crashing on the rocks, and recovering our well – being, thriving through the storm – all are the Great Learnings of our Lifetime. Living through this pandemic consciously, and all that is being wrought, brings us to great trials, Great Sleep‑fulness, Great Wake‑fulness. If you have been reading Blog postings for a while, or worked with me, you know how serious I am, how committed I am, what a…

Trust In The Way Things Are

Have trust in the way things are and are not.  Love the world, and others, and yourself. Then, you can live in peace. By Amba Gale Perhaps I would not say “Happy New Year to you” this year so much. For that phrase, always said at the beginning of the next year, becomes a cliché, and without any created intention, and thoughtful blessings behind it, means nothing. Clichés have a way of putting us to sleep. Not only that, if you are like me, thinking it, or speaking it brings up the mind at this time. And, according to the…
