“There comes a time in our spiritual journey when we are asked to let go of everything we think we are; everything we think we are good at; and everything we think we know about ourself. This time requires our complete Surrender. Often times the circumstances involved give us little choice but to let go. It may feel like we are losing everything ~ but on the other side of this dark tunnel is a more realized version of our Self. The things we cling to are sacrificed for something greater than we could have ever imagined. The Universe has a funny way of shaking things up and teaching us to Trust in the unfoldment of our Divine Self. We see that the most realized beings on Earth have been simple and joyful and ready to accept the moment without fail ~ knowing that Acceptance and Faith are the keys that unlock the door to the Limitless Love and Power of the Soul.”
This has been my precise path. It has been fierce, exhilarating, terrifying, bewildering and yes, amazingly miraculous. I have entered a new life in the same body I came to the Earth sixty five years ago. The above quote which I am not able to attribute to its author, speaks so clearly to me and I dare say to you who read this too. And so we begin a new calling; a life unencumbered by our social, familial and religious influences, awake and aware of co-creating a Life together, moving beyond the little self to the embodiment and recognition of the inter-connected One.
Whether this has come up through our relationships, health, finances, vocation or identity as a whole, it is a real death and birthing process that has moved us all into our indomitable spirit to confront, dissolve and resolve that which was pressing us to transform and transcend.
In these exciting times, many of us have become the creator and co-creators of our lives, breaking through the outmoded man-dictated beliefs of “god” and moves us from feeling victimized, to being the adventurers we truly are. It is from this perspective, we claim these past experiences as part of a collective shift in perception and reality. We are becoming another version of ourselves – one that is aware of the potency of our dreams and yearnings and how we might impact those lives we touch in the most simple yet profound ways on a daily basis. An opportunity to stay in integrity with our deeper knowing and embody our highest ideals.
As we move forward, there is a force of gratitude that supports us in releasing all that was and beckons us to a lightness of being that cultivates a fresh, new world. We cannot help but become it!
