COOKIE MONSTER: LIFE COACH
I saw this video last week, and I just had to share it with you. Cookie Monster literally takes a bite out of everyone's drama---and helps them solve their own problems by asking them questions.
Cookie Monster reminds me (after years of journaling, therapy, life coaching, counseling, self-help books, and seminars . . . JEESH!) about this:
WITHIN US ALREADY . . .
Many of us live our lives looking on the outside for answers to our deepest questions; we outsource our truth, and we lose touch with our hearts deepest knowing. Right now I am reading The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks. They refer to this deep knowing as a personal Guidance System, which has a purpose "to help you know--every step (or thought) along the way--when you are diverging from your prebirth understanding of life, and when you are on track" (p. 5). The challenge, according to the authors, is to find alignment between you (physical) and You (Source).
Children have a closer alignment than grownups, and animals have an even closer connection between themselves and source. As we adults observe, we can learn a lot from kids and animals--they remind us how to get back to Source. We watch them with joy and with awe because we are brought into the present moment and we are reminded of the connection we once had.
Seems like we grownups have the biggest challenge for alignment, because of all the conditioning we have had growing up in this physical plane.
No wonder I've always preferred children to grownups!
In de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince we are reminded that as we grow up, we must retain our childlike connection to source, remain
connected to our hearts as we navigate life, for it is in our connection to our hearts, rather than in our
minds, that we remain guided by Source.
