Gravity is vital to life, and it’s also known in mythology as the “inch-thief.” It keeps you grounded, and it also steals the inches from life — one micro-measure and micro-moment with every breath. Tapping on the window of time, it’s like a hammer of construction and destruction — working on the sacred, and through the rough . . . all to prepare the way and heal the way, along the way.
Finding a gentler tool to lighten this process — one that can wake up the miracles right before you — this is the purpose of a spirit-based life; the validity of your core balance; the nature of your higher human nature . . . the purpose of levity. Being a ‘big dreamer’; mastering this’ core balance of gravity and levity, is both an art and a science. Whereas: the exposure of your big dreams is a classic invitation to this hammer of the “inch-thief” to pay you a visit . . . to start pounding on you, and the road to your dreams is often an uncharted dirt path filled with ruts, rocks and potholes . . . a perfectly fertile land in which the “inch-thief” wields its shinny tool — the fulfillment of the big dreams is worth the risk. Good shock absorbers are essential; great turning abilities advisable; lots of determination, and a map of the imagination . . . all part of the science.
The ability to know when to use what — this is the art. When you’re very effective at this art and science — then the shock of your sudden success will require absorption . . . otherwise it can be startling and send you running for the cover of failure and sympathy.
Being intuitively inventive is the point where art meets science. Here, the “new ancients” are you, and the mastery is being pounded into your existence each breath. Everywhere you are, within everything you do . . . as it’s always been — the “inch-thief” is the stimulator.
Our prayer is that you artfully make friends with the thief; that the science of polarity brings levity to your process — dream big — prepare for the shock of fulfillment, and be the one who invents the sails to ride the waves of gravity.
