“None of us is promised an easy life. There is nothing we can do to keep ourselves immune to trials, and we cannot eradicate painful feelings in our lives. But even the most difficult seasons are not absent of God’s love. And this love changes us. This is what I want to tell you: on the far side of pain we don’t prefer, we find transformation we wouldn’t trade.” ― Nicole Zasowski, From Lost to Found:
Seems we have always been next door to Heaven…..
Like a glimpse in the peripheral vision…..the feeling is ever so quick, yet runs so deep in the marrow… you feel the wind of its calling….its moment…and you touch that glimpse all day long and each time..the heart expands and the anticipation in the Spirit vibrates….
We watch as clouds shape shift and break out into beautiful colors of our imaginations…..
we squint to squeeze a bit more time into the sensation….
At that very moment…gateways are opening…bridges crossed, vanish…and the most splendid horrible relief comes over you….
Breathe deep dear travelers…we are stepping into a new life…and as that might sound so beautiful and full of anticipated happiness…
.…awakening was a horrible relief…and courage came….while we dared to bloom through it all….
All flowers, in time…bend toward the Sun…….
“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.” ― Zamyatin, We
“Everything takes time. Bees have to move very fast to stay still.” ― David Foster Wallace
Insight …..locating that which we already are..what already is…
It is not an opinion…nor a belief…its part of the inner senses of Soul….
Recognizing such, ones focus shifts..to BEING…
No matter what is going on in an outer world stage…the insight will show you what you are willing to experience…
We master our stillness and silence…to strengthen ourselves to this insight….to be attuned to our energy output….to observe our creations….and BE that…until it no longer feeds the Soul….and in this practice….we locate our true nature….we become sensitive to the energy we emit….and attract…we witness the realm we have chosen to wander in….we recognize the sound of our desire….
Each one of us, are shaped by the truth of our natures…..
“As we walk down the steps to the unchartered rims of our life, we may become aware of unsuspected beacons we have ignored thus far, discover unsolved enigmas of our identity and so get insight into the undisclosed intricacies of our shared environment. ( “Only silence remained” )” ― Erik Pevernagie
When it happens… we are at that perfect pitch of Spirit….
When the deep knowing way and the deep wisdom way is connected…..we know we are walking through the portal of a mystery we have already created…to enter…
It happens as we come into the eventide of our past..of a life we now have seen so deeply…..it has disappeared off our pages of time….with its’ treasures …..all spent
The future we spoke into becoming…yesterday……in a blink of an eye…..transports into a change we have no definition of….
This is the threshold between another day…..and another world…
In that threshold..the world let go ….when we dared not to….
The future..is closer than the reflection reveals…
A portal is a transitionary device of sight or sound that functions as a sort of third gravitating body between the this and the that, pulling us toward itself, allowing us to bridge into the unknown from the known.
“The time we need in order to heal our wounds and finally manifest our deepest dreams is only as long as the gap between two thoughts. These are thoughts in polarity, such as separation and unity, conflict and peace, misery and joy, hate and love, etc. Since as human beings we are all capable of experiencing both thoughts, the only skill we need to develop involves mastering the GAP.” ― Franco Santoro
The gaps in our life is where, no matter how ugly …we stand there…. we feel our Self there…and look…we take no steps…even though…..the instinct is to pull out of that moment and hurry on to something new….desperate to occupy something we will win at…..or at least bluff our way there…
It is in the gap..we can recognize the quality of our interpretations…..it is where we are born again…
Do not rush to fill in these gaps… there is beauty within the gap of silence….. and acceptance within the gap of good-bye….
Someone said, bridges appear, when we move from the gap..
I believe..its in the gap..that we build those bridges….
“You become excellent when you fly at a level that creates a wide gap between where you were before and where you are now. Fly like the eagle; the eagle flies as if it never remembered it was once an egg!” ― Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes
“And in fact the only way I can deal with this eerie situation at all is to make a conscious decision that I have already lived and finished the life I planned to live – and everything from now on will be A New Life, a different thing, a gig that ends tonight and starts tomorrow morning.” ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time
New has no compass…yet we can “feel” the finished line we just crossed….
when we step from the timeline that awakened us….the pages in the book we carried are dogeared and torn and stained with tears….there are no stories left on the pages..we have worn them completely away…there are no stair steps within them..that anyone else can traverse..and get anywhere with….
we know nothing here…in the gloaming…and that’s a fine place to be in this condition…
*traversing this path through all these planet bodies dancing in all directions….picking their partners and placements exactly on time….has been difficult at best….a horrible relief…. indeed……
the feathers are still dryin… *
“Since when,” he asked, “Are the first line and last line of any poem… where the poem begins and ends?” ― Seamus Heaney
“If you assume that the new – and simply because it’s new – is always to be better than the old, chances are you’ve never known anything valuable.” ― Criss Jami, Healology
For the spirit infused human ….”new” is not simply a sparkly and excitable realm..…”new” is Gods Passion…pulsating spirit energy through you….its where one walks on water…
It’s one of those words that rhymes with Faith ….
You are strong enough…..take a deep breath and exhale…you are ready to walk into the NEW…whether you believe yourself to be so..or not….
It is in the “leaving”….where one begins to recognize the “arriving”…..through the smoke and mist of NEW…
“Heaven and Earth are meeting in a storm that, when it’s over, will leave the air purer and the leaves fertile, but before that happens, houses will be destroyed, centuries- old trees will topple, paradises will be flooded.” ― Paulo Coelho, Aleph
“It’s said that the shuffling of the cards is the earth, and the pattering of the cards is the rain, and the beating of the cards is the wind, and the pointing of the cards is the fire. That’s of the four suits. But the Greater Trumps, it’s said, are the meaning of all process and the measure of the everlasting dance.” ― Charles Williams
Alchemy is a complete change of state that occurs as if by magic. It is not so hard to TRUST, when you are supported by divine process….when you FEEL and KNOW…that this support is with you and it is REAL.
The blending of the edges of timelines..are creating a broader portal for viewing the tremendous totality of Self
Miracles are often witnessed only by those who can see through the illusions of life’s many realms….where the flow becomes the only possible direction….
“If I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned, why, in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and contemplate sand and trees?” ― Stephen Crane, The Open Boat and Other Stories
