are we the chosen people?
or the forgotten people?
sapphires and rubies,
or moldy pennies on a cracked floor?
bacon grease, or stardust?
frogs waving batons?
second hand clothes,
dirty spoons in cracked cups?
the faces of tomorrow?
or yesterdays rewritten?
oil stained hands,
fumbling for day old bread?
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves…
“Go forth and let your Light shine brightly.
Great moments are arising from this.”
Bright, sunny, warm, smiling…
I had a soft gracious waking today, to a glorious blue sky and warm sunshine. Bringing forth an unconscious gentle surrender. I feel reverence.
As I gazed out the window watching a variety of fledglings feed, I understood that all ‘the trivia’ out there is but that – knowing that there is always a better way forward – finally, acceptance.
ONE WORD: Freedom
COLOUR: Rose – Orange
Relieved, happy, appreciative, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate the constant levels of change. I am beginning to have many ideas, thoughts and insights. As my perspectives widen and grow, life makes more and more sense.
Stronger today, after a few days of throat, glands and headaches, yet, aware of so much going on around me. Bringing new feelings and altered energy. Feeling more mellow as I adjust. Legs restless at night, feverish and heady.
“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf.”
The many ‘happenings’ (on many levels) that have taken place globally this year…are too numerous to mention.
As we refocus and begin this month, let us all breath a clear breath and try to understand more clearly who we are and where we are going. Lets all make sure that we continue to shine light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward. No matter what!
Many appear to be living with eyes wide shut, hearts fluttering, senses restricted, emotions bursting…
‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth evolutionary process – our identity and focus changes quickly and unexpectedly. Working through such quantum leaps in identity, needs a great deal of awareness and personal mastery – these changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, if we are not firmly grounded in a strong sense of our overall self and our spiritual purpose.’ Unknown
Periodically in history the ground of man’s mind is plowed under, everything apparently uprooted into uncertainty.
How else shall the old habits of thought be broken up to clear the way for a new epoch?
Pushing and pulling. We are all doing our level best to awaken ourselves to a more realistic view of life on earth. Hearts are filled with love, yet so often we may be misunderstood or misunderstanding. Seek the whole picture and seek truth. Dig for it and pace yourself.
‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’
AFFIRMATION: “I AM divinely guided, protected and loved…”
Some of you have flowed with the new changes wonderfully, others…not so much. Rest assured that both are
Too delicious not to share…Blessings
Then followed that beautiful season… Summer…
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if newly created in all the freshness of childhood. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
