Be Stirred…Not Shaken

“Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.”
― 
Max Lucado, He Still Moves Stones: Everyone Needs a Miracle

Faith gives us a place to sit, and rest…when we are tired…so “why” do we wander when weary?

As I swept each corner of my life..through the years of my awakening, my dust pan continued to hold onto the question WHY

I realized after years of wandering through the ashes… that the mere word “WHY” stops Gods movement within our life at the moment we speak it or think it…. God does not abandon..He simply steps aside, when we step aside from our faith…

I remember that moment…

My energy expanded upon this risen light in my mental mind and I took a deep breath in..and rested with this awareness…..I was at my kitchen table..and the sunshine came pouring through my window….

it was time to either let every why in my life go..

or

Live boldly broken in every one of them …

right then…

in that moment….by Grace..through Faith…

the energy shifted within me…..the habitual scab on my heart healed immediately…

Stir the energy of God into every moment….

“Even the merest gesture is holy if it is filled with faith.”
― Franz Kafka

Sustaining Illumination…

“When God is ready for you to move, He will make your situation uncomfortable.”
― Germany Kent

Just when our comfy skin takes a deep breath and we sit sipping tea…the signs appear….

the light flickers….memories become ghosts…

and….

the bitter aftertaste of “familiar” arrives…..

in full awakened fashion ….

we enter a deeper version of ourselves….

inspiring a new sequel into ones future….

Expansion is inevitable…..when creating an intimate connection to our purpose….

“All living things must grow or they will die. Adaptation to change is a characteristic of all living systems. Thus, all living things must grow, adapt, evolve, or die. Evolution is nature’s creative way of pushing living organisms to higher degrees of complexity. We adapt up, not compromise down.”

The Power of a Whisper

1 KINGS 19:11-13 NIV

11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

As we isolated ourselves and the world was isolated…from us….we entertained ourselves in noise…in music..movies..games…even reading was ‘Audible”

THEN

An amazing thing came…a still small voice..broke through my own head and my heart heard this whisper….”listen”…

The traffic noise was gone….the working noise of city projects, street sweepers, shops busy with customers…all quiet…seemed even the power lines “tones” shifted…

The television was turned off. Pandora was turned off…YouTube was turned off…and I was let loose on myself….

I live within a city..yet am blessed with beautiful cedars that are 50 years old as my landscape at my front windows…

I listened to the trees…and began to gauge my “seasons” through them….through their swaying….boughs of needles dropping….cones scattering….new life sprouting….the way they sang with the wind..and rejoiced in the rain…and emitted joy in the sunshine..and prayed with me in the gloaming of evening tide….

My senses expanded..became more energized in the rhythm of Spirit…

I had meditated daily for over 4 decades..yet still….life was busy..noisy and full…

yet..

not as full as when the thunder could be heard..and the whispers rolled softly from the echoes in lightning bolts of energy…

God speaks softly..and wants my full attention..wants my Human and Spirit..in a Unified, balanced attention…

so the remembering will be deeply sown….

It is not I that walks this path..God is carrying me….

When God asked me what I was doing here…..

I said…

I needed to hear the thunder…

“Make peace with silence, and remind yourself that it is in this space that you’ll come to remember your spirit. When you’re able to transcend an aversion to silence, you’ll also transcend many other miseries. And it is in this silence that the remembrance of God will be activated.”
― Wayne W. Dyer

Bom Dia! Que a semana seja uma benção tranquila e feliz!

The Gift of Choice

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we dare to live fully…right where we are…we enter the moment with the weight of all of our attention….

Reflection of such is the birthplace of discernment…a most insightful, awakened place that empowers you to realize…..we choose the skin our stories are held together with… the skin we will eventually grow through and shed…over and over again…

awakening is like that..it evolves as you choose to grow…

Awakening is not just an event….it is nature’s way to carry us through the eternity of time…you can choose to create a rhythm with the process and entertain new steps..new views…in an elevated acceptance of the responsibility required for forward walking….

As we let the Light bend the moments…..we can see the pattern of Gods’ Hands…everywhere….

“Awakening is the greatest acceptance of nature.”

Because It Matters

“At any point God can change his plans for your life when he decides your life purpose needs to be protected.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Even Shakespeare wasn’t as tragic as 2020..

While embracing the elongated stillness in my corner of the world… sight was increasing…Spirit became more vocal…….I practiced listening for God first in everything….EVERYTHING…

because it mattered harder than ever before…..

I held on to hope and quoted scriptures like mantras all day long….* still do*

as my old life….flew away…and my future plans suddenly disappeared….my unquenchable need for things to be different…..stopped…my thirst was satisfied right where I was..and as I felt around my edges..I noticed I had let go….

At the very beginning of 2020……I asked God to help me grow…and it started raining…..

As the Crow Flies

“Truth is not fully explosive, but purely electric. You don’t blow the world up with the truth; you shock it into motion.” 
― Criss Jami, 
Healology

This is what the year 2020 has done for us…..

We were brought to living our awakened state of Self..magnified….

Beyond the learning..we put this energy into motion….

The entire experience was a “course correction” in a disappearing timeline…..

Welcome to the other side of awakening…..

Its not too far to the good stuff…As the crow flies….

“You have to understand, my dears, that the shortest distance between truth and a human being is a story.” – Anthony de Mello

Following Light

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”

-Norman Maclean

We each found our own way …while being steered by some secret compass of the soul…..

We became inflamed with a deepened longing…for new discovery…..

As we walked from the wilderness….our inner guidance became more audible…

This was us..learning to listen….to the Sound of our Light

Like a river….the eternal makes us urgent

We finished the falling and landed in a New Age…

transformed..and fearless….we made a spark…. and lit up a brand-new beginning….

In this world you’ve a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings
There’s a star on the far horizon
Rising bright in an azure sky
For the rest of the time that you’re given
Why walk when you can fly?

Mary Chapin Carpenter

Wishing all dear fellow travelers….a heartfelt Christmas Blessing….

The Last Person That Mattered

Time-lapse rose blooming

“A rose does not answer its enemies with words, but with beauty.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo

It is in revelations through hindsight..one rises from the fog of the awakening….where one sees through the heaviness of time..and the veils lift…Its the stuff of miracles and immense Faith…indeed….from fire to ashes to being placed on the potters wheel and becoming new..its all on Gods timing..one must simply be willing to Trust and Believe

When you have come through a lifetime of abuse and become an adult in it…and keep trying to become better so “they” will love you…one day..you will awaken..and it is the beginning of what will be the most horrible relief…

When you realize..you were always the last person that mattered…something shifts within you and what this is..is opening the door for God to establish his works within you.

It is at this very moment..in a wink of an eye..that you know you have stepped into the acceptance of being healed..and being Loved….and it all comes from within…it is indeed a fire one must walk all the way through…

This is not the end of that journey..it is the end of THAT long ago beginning….

God is doing a new thing through you..oh..its not new to Him….but for the last person that mattered..it is EVERYTHING….this courage that scares you to your bones…brings one to a healing that “surpasses all understanding”……if one stays the course…

Miracles are real…

—Jesus says, “Lazarus discovered I don’t wear a wristwatch.”..Prophetic Sight Bill Yount

The seed does indeed come to bear fruit…as it dares to reveal its true nature..by rising….

“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.”
― Marcel Proust

Landing

A380 coming out of clouds

“We’re landing in five minutes everyone.’ He spoke firmly, with conviction.‘ Let’s give these nice folk something to talk about.”
― 
Christopher Byford, Den of Shadows

We realize how long we wandered the scenic route….the very moment we come in for the landing…

we let go of all we have outgrown ….seemingly in one breath of time….

as we emerge from the clouds…the energy is parted and gravity takes on a new feeling….

There are no “further awakening ahead” signs to follow…..

Landing is inevitable …..as the road we began the journey on does run out…

indeed…. it runs out of pretending….

It is in the Landing….we meet who we have Become…..

These are the days of the endless summer

These are the days, the time is now

There is no past, there’s only future

There’s only here, there’s only now” ..Van Morrison

Thankful Giving

Embedded image

“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.”
― Thomas Goodwin

May you notice sacred moments and give Thanks for all that is in your world..for all you have and all you have let go of….

God is still working in your life..you have a new story unfolding…

It is in the waiting..that trust builds momentum toward Gods plans for you……

Scripture says..Be Thankful IN everything..It does not say Be thankful for everything..

In the uncertainty of this timeline we live within..keep the heart opened and let Peace be the frequency you dwell within…speak Peace into all steps of your Living…into all thoughts before manifesting them…

Peace this deep is found in the unshakable trust we Give to God…..strength is that which He gladly gives us through this trust….

PSALM 34:4 I sought the Lord and He answered me… He delivered me from all my fears

“Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.”
― Elizabeth Elliot
