“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…..
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”
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?
“You know those little moments when an unexpected act or a spoken word affects your heart with sweet, satiating intensity―a simple gesture that possesses deep, personal meaning beyond what anyone realizes? You know those tender moments? That’s God pressing his lips on your forehead and whispering, ‘I love you.’” ― Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway
Not all that Spirit shows us….is positive and blissful…yet the Way may be traversed always in tenderness…
Breathe in and allow that breath to be known as what it is…. the breath of God..
feel that strength..feel the Peace as you exhale every Blessing in that breath….out into your created, manifested moment…and recognize the fruit within….every single thing that brought us here, every single thing we worked through and came into truth with..is done..we are ready for the new frontier…
We must see with the new sight we have been given….and with this sight..we must begin stepping into a new place..with a new rhythm, and recognize our new purpose…
Consciously dwell where Spirit guides and be grateful to be free of trying to know more….all continues to be revealed to us..as we elevate our BEING…toward it….
using the wisdom of tenderness toward Self and seeing it express itself into this new place we have entered….gives us expanded options..sit with such and allow God to work through you..Allow Spirit its turn…
It is in this place…that peace can fill our senses…tenderly….as we truly begin our journey..where no human has ever ventured… since time began…
allow your Self…to be NEW…
“Your tenderness has pervaded into the very pore of my being. Last night I inhaled the fragrance of the moon!” ― Avijeet Das
“I didn’t survive the storm outside to allow anyone (including myself) to erode my soul” ― Vijaya Gowrisankar
The mind of an enlightened creator KNOWS that of themselves, they do nothing. But in each moment of decision, they can ALLOW, the great power and mystery of Love to direct their course. They can utilize time to refine their ability to hear ONLY the voice of Love, moment by moment, breath by breath, day by day, until time is translated into eternity. And the mind rests, reclines, in its perfect union with God. Events still occur. The world is still what the world will choose to be, unaware that there walks in its midst one who is awake, who needs to make no show. They merely ARE the presence of wakefulness, knowing that in each moment, they will now be INformed by the guidance of the Comforter, the guidance of right-mindedness, the guidance of enlightenment.
The Way of Mastery… The Way of the Heart
It’s not what you believe….it’s what you allow….
This is the true nature of the undivided balance….. ones wholehearted acceptance to that which they themselves are allowing….
“There’s truths you have to grow into.” ― H.G. Wells
even thorns bloom…..
While addressing that which is going on within …..for that’s all that is truly going on….be mellow with that which you place focus on….be gentle dear traveler….when finding freedom from what could have been…
No words or movements needed or required……are ever hurried….
“Love is holy because it is like grace–the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.” ― Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
“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
