The Weight of Stardust

Timelapse of Cepheid variable star RS Puppis taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.  Light echoes ripple through the surrounding nebula as the star pulses in a 41 day cycle.

“The hands that made the stars are holding your heart.”

Corinthians 15:40-41 “There are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies. The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory.”

Amazing how beautifully lit a star is…..long after it has turned to dust….

The star is generating …..a strong feeling of urgency and regret…

What we are seeing in the glorious sky…are the echoes of a stars LOVE..of Being…..

“What we do today, echoes forever.”
― Islam Reddioui

**Expansion is that which I am experiencing in minute by minute fashion. The very moment I have an enlightened awareness of what I am being shown or led to..I am in it..and it becomes yesterdays knowing..minute by minute a shift of perception..wisdom..or simple acceptance…becomes understanding and I am given the space of a long breath..and the shft continues. I have tried to write for days, and by the time I get to a few lines..all I have in store for sharing..is antiquated stuff..when a mere twenty minutes earlier, it was a fine awareness of the next steps being revealed. There is no “pondering room” to sip tea in right now…Even in meditation..the deep calm manifests steadily new energy and I seem to be drinking liquid stardust..and my renewal rate has increased 100 fold…

When I tasted stardust earlier this week, I savered that feeling, I went with it.. and touched it often in my waking hours..and in my dream state since Sunday evening, each experience was in the stars…was feeling stardust..and last evening..I began creating in it…

Today, I feel such a powerful connection, that I wanted to simply share the energy of stardust..**..

Create an amazing adventure within your world this day!! Namaste’

“Such aching mystery hides,
in your stardust-glimmer eyes.”

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.”
― Alvin Conway , Sapientia: The 40 Principles of Wisdom

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!

Naturally Occuring Heart

“Can I do something?” is a far different question from “will I do something?” For the first is a question of ability, while the second is a question of ability rendered irrelevant by passion.”
― Craig D. Lounsbrough

Responsibility…Responding to all opportunities with the Ability God placed within You…..

We have come from our wilderness dimension….

We are called to express to others….The Light …The Way…

With every privilege comes a responsibility in it…

New responsibilities are required to step into the new dimension God is calling us to…

that new dimension, where we respond with the ability God gave us, for this time on Earth….to walk in the world and truly not of the world….expressing in form….our Higher Self…Holy Spirit…. seeding Light…showing The Way….

We are called to show others….The Christ shining through Us….

Ephesians 4:22-24 Christian Standard Bible

22 to take off[a] your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires, 23 to be renewed[b] in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on[c] the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.

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.” 
― Yash Thakur

Nevertheless…..

“Jesus promised his disciples three things—that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.”

― William Barclay, The Gospel of Luke 

From the beginning, Jesus told the disciples that He would make them into something different

Practice this knowing….

We are IN Gods plan…. in all moments….

BECOMING..is brutal….

God is consistant..constant..and never changing…..LOVE

choosing Love..is Gods expectation of us…in all ways….in all moments….to enter an unconditional Joy….of Spirit….

Love is not the easy road..not the smooth path..and is not conditional….is never a “sometime” type of expression….Nevertheless…..Grace is given….to not only endure it..but also..to expose it through all our works…and both require dilegent practice…

to activate this Light….one must be prepared to accept the horrible relief of Believing… with ALL your Heart..ALL your Soul..ALL your mind…in Gods Plans..In Gods Love….and your Worth in it ALL….

“Your call will become clear as as your mind is transformed by the reading of Scripture and the internal work of God’s Spirit. The Lord never hides His will from us. In time, as you obey the call first to follow, your destiny will unfold before you. The difficulty will lie in keeping other concerns from diverting your attention.”
― Swindoll Charles R.



The Gravity Of Transformation

Truth is not conceptual. We can never understand or realize it through concepts and ideas. Truth is not to be understood. Rather, it is meant to be experienced, tasted, like nectar. There is nothing to understand about nectar. One must taste it, drink it, and experience it. The truth is like that. It is to be experienced and realized, not speculated about.”
― Anam Thubten, No Self No Problem: Awakening to Our True Nature

Transformation….keeping your eyes open to see stardust…..

This is where pain becomes emptiness….it is where the ultimate unconditional acceptance occurs…

This is the “giving” of God….the room for goodness and gladness to dwell and BLOOM into a new thing…

We come into it…in hindsight…..in the completed….unconditional…. letting go…

As we gaze into the Eternal….we recognize factors ….that were not present where we stood before….

God is moving us from the Good..to the Best….

Remain in the purest form of peace and kindness…faith and hope..and above all else..LOVE…

For these are the true elements that navigate well….the gravity of transformation…

“Might we kneel before God every day so that the transformation never stops, but the wounding does.”
― Craig D. Lounsbrough

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
