These words are ringing truer right now than ever before. How beautiful that we get to feel what it’s like being ALIVE! And even when it is so painful, sometimes. Often times, lately. All the sadness, all the sorrow, all the anguish, all the pain…
Maybe your experience is completely different; maybe it’s filled with joy and pleasure, and that’s completely valid, also. Each journey is unique, and each psyche gets to unfold in its own due time. Plenty of ebbs and flows for all flavors.
It took millennia of ancestry to bring us to where we are. The timing of what’s unfolding, in comparison, is a blink of an eye.
What’s going on out there is a reflection of what’s unfolding within each of us. With all its shadows and light, each gives meaning to the other, all coming from the same Source.
AND, we can no longer afford to haul our past, our pain, and our trauma along where we are headed; it is time to compost it all! It all serves its purpose, until it no longer does. It is time to let go… This is a one way journey to Oneness.
And while on this journey… May you see the beauty that is your existence, with all the shadows, for they give meaning to light. May you choose love over fear, as you feel and heal within and without. May you remember the ephemeral nature of it all, joy and sorrow, sadness and pleasure, and everything in between. And may you finally realize the Oneness that we all are, unconditionally, eternally.
Some days I lay face down on the grass, feeling caressed by the Mother, feeling her heartbeat, as she soothes my pain and drinks my tears. While I hurt feeling the collective suffering, I feel her heal. Other times I stare at the sky, the marvelous vastness and beauty of the mystery beyond my human mind’s understanding of all that’s out there. I bathe in the sunlight, healing my deepest crevices. I reach for the clouds and stars with my voice and prayers, as I cry a little inside… The Moon is my witness and my nightly companion. As she ebbs and flows dancing with shadow and light, my heart does, too. I cry, I sing, I dance, I laugh and weep, for all those who can’t. I feel the pain for all those in suffering, physical and mental. The root is all the same. I bow to all the angels who are holding us through these times; ethereal ones and the human ones in the frontlines and hospitals. I practice compassion for all those who continue on the path of shadows. For all those who choose to repeat rather than evolve. You can’t rush healing or learning. That I’m coming to understand the hard way. The times, they are changing, and my heart remains open, as I gather her pieces and remember the dance, once again… “…go as deep as you feel it, the deeper you mean it, the more the stars can hear it. The deeper you mean it, the more healing can happen, the Earth heart opens, connects to your own…” Beautiful music 🎶 by Ayla Nereo
