So, what exactly is a Sublime State?
Which Bucket Are You Filling?
If you describe something as SUBLIME, you mean that it has a wonderful quality that affects you deeply.
-Collins English Dictionary
So, with that in mind, we each have unique thoughts, desires and goals for this life. This is one of the many aspects that makes our world such a colourful place to live. To have a healthy body, mind and spirit allows us to live out the most beautiful of our aspirations with greater ease. When we are well, we are better friends and family members. Health allows us to move through this life with more ease.
Listening to Your Inner Voices
When my oldest daughter was in kindergarten, she came home one day and told me that her bucket got tipped by a classmate. I had NO IDEA what she was talking about. Did she mean a bucket she was playing with in the schoolyard? Did she mean that her lunch container fell on the floor? Lets face it, 5 year olds can be confusing! She proceeded to tell me about a fantastic book her class was reading together. The classroom teacher was showing the kids different ways they could “fill” not only their own bucket, but also the bucket of other people around them. She also explained that there are actions that “tip” people’s bucket.
We all have inner voices. That doesn’t necessarily make us crazy, it is simply part of being a human. We commonly refer to these voices as our intuition, conscience, ego, guardian angel, devil inside and/or gut-instinct . Some of us listen to these voices, others tend to ignore them. But did you realize that there are multiple voices within you?
The more fearful of these voices likely evolved to help keep us safe from the many dangers that lurked in our primitive world. They told us not to leap from a high tree branch or to steer clear of a Sabre-toothed tiger. The nicer voices maybe evolved to help us develop teamwork and community. Now, with the relative safety and comfort in our modern lives, these voices have taken on different roles.
