The Journey…A Short Story…

10540642_10153024297108158_1326116453824843221_n

‘All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.’
Andre Breton

TODAY: There is a sense of calm and stillness here…the sky shrouded in soft white clouds. It feels like much like being in a safe soft bubble, whilst life out there continues in a myriad of different ways…

IN ONE WORD: Believe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

BLOG:8:7:14:_n

INSIGHTS:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles,

it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

A long long ago and far far away two almost humans came together without the Soul Purpose of going to a place called Earth to explore an adventure of being ‘only human.’ They were in joy, in love in connected on all levels and ready….
But, they soon learnt that Earth was a hard school, with a harsh set of lessons and soon too soon, they drifted apart drawn into world of ‘make believe.’ Finally yet lost the connection and then lost touch…

Eons of time past, no word, no sign, no memory…then on a certain day at an exact and perfect point, a synchronised timeline, an invisible thread and Divine will…

11001840_1570919076486313_6000366810190334013_n

The thread was tugged, an echo remembered, their Soul Song whispered sweetly, oh so silently, into their hearts. As their ears heard, their eyes opened wider, their heart raced, there was the very faintest recollection, knowing that it WAS true because it sounded a call from Home…

The thread tightened and pulled it became shorted and shorter and it began to glisten and gleam once more…for it originally had a Golden hue…

Each heard this sound over and over…and even as they slept they sang…and ‘the call’ got louder and the thread drew in… shorted and shorter…it was oh so close…It was not unlike Heaven, yet they knew that this was Earth!

And the day came, when the sound and the tone and the shining thread all met. The two ‘almost humans’ could once more be at One, and in love and filled with new found joy! They knew each other instantly, though they know not how…..

On a journey that seems unending…

Every Experience is DIVINE…

10413402_644499985656577_5103288772443134617_n

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find

reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

PHYSICALLY: Weak and wobbly…Yet elated and happy!

INSIGHTS:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.”

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

The Such-ness of Life…

REVERENCE:11020250_839654562738033_3626542310259820344_o

The art of life is to live in the present moment

and to make that moment as perfect as we can

by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God himself.


Emmet Fox

TODAY: Bright, sunny, clear, uplifting, warm and delicious…energetically, ever changing.

ONE WORD: Delight!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Summer colours…a rainbow of floral beauty…

HOW I FEEL:

We are powerful beyond measure, and so deeply vulnerable at the same time.

Jeff Brown

Happy, rested, joyful…after a very challenging few weeks, life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration. I am at peace with the ‘such-ness’ of life…

PHYSICALLY: Solar flares, eclipses, full moon…and so much more…Sleep, not enough, then plenty…urgently hungry, then no appetite – restless at times, aches and pains, headaches, are but a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis…

INSIGHTS:

‘So divinely is the world organised that every one of us,

in our place and time,

is in balance with everything else.’

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

Lift your face to the heavens, breath deeply and begin to live in the way you always hoped you would, dreamt of and desire! Run towards that dream and embrace every bit of it! Because if you don’t do that now…surrender to it all…its not going to happen and you know that, you can feel that.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own.

And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Dr. Seuss

‘There are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for this ‘sudden death’ of the old…But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is, knows exactly what’s coming  next…’ We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming and bless this time we have here on Earth. We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush…enjoy this time, its a monumental event!

Don’t Forget Your Dreams…

1185501_432983106814675_2098431847_n

“This life is yours.

Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well.

Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly.

Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature.

Take the power to control your own life.

No one else can do it for you.

Take the power to make your life happy.”

Susan Polis Schutz

TODAY: “Begin at once to live and count each separate day as a separate life.” Seneca

I woke early – dawn had broken, the sky was pale blue with a soft pink hue…It felt fragile and ethereal and decidedly feminine. I felt wistful, connected, happy and loved.

IN ONE WORD: Happiness! ‘Some days we can see it! We even feel it, and we live it! Other days we feel weak, battle weary, even afraid.
Only to rewaken on a new day filled with hope and our dreams intact!’ Ashtara

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbow hues…

HOW I FEEL: I know and understand that all of us do have to adjust to so much that feels ‘new’, or different…changed forever…There is a part of ourselves that we must lovingly let go of. What’s next could be vital, exciting, interesting, and even more than that, if we open ourselves to let it in…

1459732_10201064798558853_1874188730_n

INSIGHTS: “Ester asked why people are sad.
“That’s simple,” says the old man. “They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

THE COLLECTIVE: Yesterday I wrote a note to myself – and today I know that these words hold a key to your future and mine!
‘Be ‘small’ and feel unhappy about where you are, or look forward excitedly and create a more dynamic reality…’
‘We have to go with our gut, make changes, move, re-arrange, throw out, fix, alter, renew, add and then start afresh!’

AFFIRMATION: “Every day in every way I am Happier and Happier…”

“What can I do with my happiness?

How can I keep it, conceal it, bury it where I may never lose it?

I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain, gather it up with lace and silk, and press it over myself again.”

Anais Nin

Your Light Is Everywhere…

10297836_10203093919884358_8287045565945989856_n

“I am afraid too, like all my fellow men,

of the future too heavy with mystery and too wholly new,

towards which Time is driving me…

Then like these men,

I wonder where life is leading me…”

Pierre de Chardin

282943_1377562309173185_79957348_n

TODAY: Ah, a glorious day! Bright blue sky, with sun beaming down on me…Sitting in my pretty Courtyard Garden, I bask and smile…Good Coffee and sunshine, Its Sunday…what could be better…Life is good. I feel happy!

IN ONE WORD: Stillness…and my inner silence grown as I learn to deepen my understanding of life, the Universe and All That Is…

TODAY’S COLOUR SELECTION: Soft Coral

HOW I FEEL: Good! Joyous, Happy, alive and well – living on this sweet Earth!

INSIGHTS: Look around you…What do you think, how do you feel, what do you see, know or understand? What can I tell you that is new?
At times we will feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Our Divinity seems to leak out. You wonder what happened?
Do not become unsure, feel unworthy and refuse to own the fact that you are DIVINE…

Darkness is part of you. No need to delude yourself about your darkness…Slowly allow it to integrate and then balance…focus on accomplishing this integration. Dark spins light forward…and so, as you integrate you embrace your Divinity! There is nothing to fear…be safe and comfortable in your cocoon…your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE: Everyone has their gift, their way. There is nothing you need to do other than bring in as much of yourself as you can. Bring in as much of your passion as possible and create the life you really want. Keep working towards doing that and once you bring in more of who you are, the planet and its people will benefit. You need not modify or change – just keep revealing yourself. When you reveal more of yourself, you become more whole and more powerful.
 Lee Harris, from Personal Power

The Sun Has Risen Once Again…

“I am afraid too, like all my fellow men,

of the future too heavy with mystery and too wholly new,

towards which Time is driving me…

Then like these men,

I wonder where life is leading me…”

Pierre de Chardin

TODAY: Warm, joyous, blue sky, humid, happy and bright! (Yes, I see its suddenly raining huge drops!)

IN ONE WORD: Wonder

COLOUR OF THE DAY: I see a splash of SUMMER colours before my eyes…

HOW I FEEL: “I will only move as quickly as the slowest part of me can go.” Ah, the shifts, changes, ideas, creations! Ecstatic moments when insights flow. Messages, nudges and revelations.

PHYSICALLY: Days of intense energies all around me and in me, downloads, then depletion…and then I rise and begin again…

1610020_656854434362631_406214139631339742_n

INSIGHTS: And then – we are straddling two worlds, this rapidly evolving one and the ‘old’ one that is familiar in all its forms. But as we hang on to it, dragging parts of it along with us, finding ‘the way’ tough, because of those we may be bringing with us…are resisting, fighting, ignoring or challenge our deep desire to move forward – to be more…

Some days we can see it! We even feel it, and we live it! Other days we feel weak, battle weary, even afraid… Only to rewaken on a new day filled with hope and our dreams intact …

THE COLLECTIVE: When you wake up tomorrow, take time to notice how many things are running smoothly, how many small miracles compose your day. As you take in your world, you might feel a moment of Gratitude for the basic fact that, once again, the sun has risen to illuminate the abundant Earth, and the earth’s gravitational field holds you – and all that you hold dear, in a tight, life-affirming embrace….

AFFIRMATION: “Joy and happiness are mine…”

who then are you?
and who am i?
if not more than stars,
and something less than snowflakes…

the breath of a god,
who chooses to be unnamed.
the croak of a frog,
the moan of a dying branch…
