As we arrive at this time of endings and new beginnings, I have been in deep contemplation, seeking to understand what is going on in the world around us, and wondering about our human station, as we mourn twenty young children, and six of their teachers, from Newtown, Connecticut. Blessings upon them, their parents, their teachers, families and friends, and all of us. They have served well, reminding us in unbearable sacrifice of themselves, of the truth and what matters, and moving us to take action now and do what we need to do, to be our best selves, in the fullness of the best that is human. We extend our love and acknowledgement and gratitude to each of them. And as difficult as we may find it, let us also extend our prayers to the gunman and his mother, the twentyseventh victim.
We move now into a new beginning, informed and, yes, enriched. It is my hope that we each move with clear intention and right motivation, and indeed, enthusiasm, and go forward. We are co-creators, it is our blessing, our birth-right and gifted opportunity to shape our world. We are assisted not only by each other, but by unseen consciousness as well. The time of transition is upon us, and we are each important players.
What can I do, you may ask. How can I have any impact on changing a world gone mad?
It is simple.
Come from your heart.
Change how you see.
Change how you think.
Change your focus.
By choosing: How and what you see. How you think.
Remember who you are.
You are an expression of God, of Light, of Source, of Truth.
See or feel or know the light of your own origin.
You are here as an extension of your original self, the one that knows God, and Light, and Source. You are an emissary of Truth.
Don’t underestimate yourself.
Be not fearful.
Remember who you are.
We are one with One.
And we are legion.
Just about 10 years ago or so, Hopi Elders sent a message around the world, to support us in the upheaval and difficulties and change they saw coming. It is wisdom to take to heart, and great practical advice on how to proceed to move forward, as we must do. I share it with you here:
There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore, they will feel they are being torn and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
And I say, see who is there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally,
Least of all ourselves.
For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The way of the lone wolf is over.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner.
And in celebration.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
