“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
“All forms of becoming require spaciousness in one way or another; mental space that allows the mind to expand, emotional space for feeling to flower, and physical space in which to move.” ― Dana Hutton, The Art of Becoming
One speaks Self into Its own position each moment…
creating a flow…..conscious or otherwise…
The moment manifests as such…..and must have a response…
Catch a glimpse of a shooting star…thousands of years can be seen in an instant….
The length of “time” it takes one to recognize this art of freedom……is the time for the blooming….
Spacious: To bring a balance to observing responses
Where the answer is.. unknown….
Leaves room for “maybe”…..
Silence is like a cradle holding our endeavors and our will; a silent spaciousness sustains us in our work and at the same time connects us to larger worlds that, in the busyness of our daily struggle to achieve, we have not yet investigated. Silence is the soul’s break for freedom. David Whyte
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
“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
We have been at the beginnings many times through this journey into awakening, …
there are indeed many layers to us…
Yet when the clearing has come, when we have become full of empty….we come to the bridge of no returns..no regrets..where an inborn strength is felt from Soul depth…and we feel our newness….
It seems, one simply awakens one day and life has a demand for a starting point.
It takes receiving everything one ever wanted.. then losing it all…to know what true freedom is….to step into the starting….
“I am where I am and it’s the perfect place to start. I have what I have and it’s more than enough. I’m creating what I’m creating by what I think, say and do. I’m going where I’m going, and a thousand angels are with me too.” ― Elizabeth Richardson, Unconditional Happiness
