Putting the 'Good' in Morning
Imagine waking up in the morning at the break of dawn. Not because an alarm went off or because you 'needed' to wake up. But because the sun's rays were quietly caressing your face and you were fully rested. You don't have any morning obligations so you're able to lay there a few moments as you remember your dreams from the night before and ponder the lessons and adventures you had. Maybe you take a bit of time to write if you feel like, then get out of bed. Your thoughts immediately turn to your garden and how the new fruits, flowers, and sprouts are growing. You make your way outside into your expansive forest garden that reminds you of what Eden must have been. As you walk through your garden you collect the best, tree ripened fruits, flowers, berries, herbs and leaves for your breakfast and tea. Many of these herbs and leaves are more potent than coffee in their ability to wake and excite the mind and spirit. So, there is no need to purchase anything for your morning routine that your garden doesn't provide. As you appreciate your garden, communicating with your plants the morning animals arrive as birds, dogs, ducks, bees, etc wake up with the morning. You say hello to the morning, and let the sun warm your body.
Maybe you'd like to eat now, or maybe you feel like getting some movement in and you head to your designated spot in your garden to do some yoga/dancing/breath work/physical exercise/etc whatever movement you felt like doing that day. You don't have a set routine so you just move however you're inspired to do so, stretching, awakening, engaging and enlivening the body, mind, and soul with your breath and movements. When you feel awakened, strengthened and satisfied you head on over to your natural swimming pool/pond and jump in to cleanse off. The slightly cool waters excite your body and soul, engage your nervous system, eliminate impurities and prepare you for optimal performance. As you clean off in the water, the same water your plants use to create and grow, drops of your DNA and sweat that contain information about you are washed into the water and the plants are able to use this information to better bear fruit specifically suited to your tastes and needs.
You head in for breakfast, but as you do a sudden spark of inspiration strikes you. You head over to your creative area and start applying your inspiration. You enter into a state of flow and a few hours pass. You hardly notice as you've been so enthralled in your creation that time was non-existent. You get finished and an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and happiness washes over you as you admire the inspired creation. As your sense of awe and satisfaction begin to imbue your body you remember the breakfast you have waiting for you.
You head back over to your morning's garden collection and notice your partner standing in the garden singing a soft tune and gently touching the plants, maybe your partner has a child, maybe not. Your presence connects with them and you exchange smiles. You offer some of the fruit you had picked and gone together to enjoy the bounty. You prepare some tea with some herbs, leaves, and flowers. Then bite into the freshest plant ripened fruit; fruit that was grown for you, by you and filled with the most vitality and nutrition as it was allowed to reach peak perfection on the plant. This fruit has a taste specifically created for you and is more flavorful and healthy for you than anything you could get outside your own garden. Each bite demands your attention as you focus on the multitude and complexity of sensations in each moment and movement of the mouth. You enter into a form of meditation as you engage your full awareness into the delicious gifts of your breakfast. You finish your meal and shift your attention and again, inspiration strikes you. You decide to share with your partner what came to you and you enter into a creation of ideas while you share your healing tea, tea with the most potent of flavors as the leaves, flowers, and herbs were collected just that morning. (Mixed with few herbs and leaves you specifically collected when the moon was at its gravitational peak, ensuring the highest density of energy and life in the leaves when picked.)
Your conversation grows with your partner as inspiration builds between you. The excitement of sharing these ideas and forging new connections in your mind is not unlike the excitement of co-creating experienced in sexual creation. As you come to a peak and birth a new idea you set out to put this idea in motion. As you have no strict obligations for the day you're free to passionately act on this idea immediately and in full inspiration, while the idea is still teeming with life inside of you. You look up at the sky to gauge the time to discern if you'll be able to complete the creation. You notice it's around 11 am. "Plenty of time to create," you think as you head off...
