The earth waking up all around me The breeze stirring all the young leaves and blossoms of every tree. People cheerful and happy Light everywhere, undeniable. No matter how faithfully I may have been clinging to old skeletons, When spring comes I’m given hope that the willingness to die really does mean a beautiful rebirth, and somehow, I let go.
There will come a time when the light that you are will join again with the light from which you came. Before then, consider that it is the nature of life to expand endlessly. Are you flowing with this tendency, or are you hindering it? Are you willing to expand endlessly, allowing the divine light in you to be expressed through this form before the time comes for you to release this form back to the earth from which it came? As much as we hate to think about it, we will all one day die, and there is no escaping this truth. Will you allow yourself full expansion before you give way to the ultimate surrender of death? If you’re wanting to expand into your fullest self before you die, then don’t wait! Nothing is promised; we only have this one moment. Call on all your courage, knowing you will die one day, and expand NOW.
When you woke up this morning, did you remember who you really are? Have you remembered yet today? If not, let me remind you, but first, S L O W L Y EXHALE ALL THE WAY, and then, S L O W L Y INHALE ALL THE WAY. There now, that’s better, isn’t it? ✨❤️✨ You are pure consciousness in a physical body standing on a tiny blue dot in the middle of infinite space. You are a single cell on that blue dot, a subatomic particle of the atom in which you live, and yet your consciousness is bigger than the universe. Can you open in awareness of this vastness? Can you feel out to the farthest reaches of space, can you sense into the urge to expand forever? Can you take on the awareness of a star, burning in your desire to express your light? Can you spin the way a planet spins, can you feel its mass, and can you sense the momentum it has attained in its embrace of the cosmic dance? And YOU, how about your embrace? You are the center of the universe, did you know that? You are, in this very second, entirely surrounded, held, seen, known, loved and cherished by the force that created you (and you can call it what you want!) You are sovereign in your center, holding the consciousness of the cosmos. Now that you’ve remembered that the entire universe is yours to command, what now will you do?
So, let’s say that all of your dreams came true. Then what? Do you have plans for after the plans you currently hold come to fruition? It is the nature of life and love to expand endlessly, forever, without reason or explanation or logic. You are a part of that expansion in a body you have rented from the earth. Infinitely creative and powerful, you can be, do and have whatever you want. Yes. So when you get all that, what’s next?
When you decide to live in the mystery, nothing is predictable. One day goes smoothly, the next full of obstacles. When you decide to leave the safety of routine and give your life over to some greater purpose, only surrender and trust will do. It is a death of sorts… familiarity makes way for chaos, and this is a good thing. The moment your whole life falls apart, this is the beginning of your journey to realizing your fullest destiny. Take heart; there are others who have gone before you, you are not alone. Take a deep breath, walk to the edge and jump. You will grow wings and fly, you will be caught by some gigantic gentle hands, or you might be smashed to bits on the rocks below. Whatever happens, new life awaits… so don’t wait. Dive, dive into the mystery, and see what happens.
For so long I have seen my sadness as the enemy, a sign that something wasn’t working in my life. And now, with this new perspective, I’m being told that my sadness is a friend, a sign that Life is working through me to transform me, to peel away the excess and reveal the essence of who I am. I guess all of my prayers and my hours of meditation were really me trying to be good enough to gain some leverage and negotiate with God. What if there were no escape? What if this was all meant to be, and what if all the answers to all my questions were locked up inside me, waiting for me to accept the initiation that will open my consciousness to their perfect revelation?
There is a struggle between the old way and the new, an attachment to familiarity and a yearning to break free. My body is tired and my mind is weary but my soul knows this is the only game in town, and so it says, Keep playing.
