So much clarity and insight is flowing in these days. I saw how we create structure in our lives in order to hold ourselves. We create various identities and roles as a means of feeling safe and comfortable. It has been our security. We have been programmed to adopt labels and live within their confines. We do this on so many levels, how we eat, how we pray, how we vote, how we dress, how we socialize. We forget that inherent in every structure, concept, belief, is its destruction. We hold to the form, not realizing that we imprison ourselves in the doing. Truly, we are fluid beings, moving to the rhythms of our earth mother, our sky father. I see the image of Gulliver, a giant, tied down by a thousand tiny ropes. We are these huge beings of light, who have become tethered and bound by our attachments to form.
We are being gifted with the unexpected in these now times. The weather no longer follows “normal” patterns, our bodies are exhibiting unusual and unexplainable symptoms, our sleep cycles no longer adhere to an eight hour block, our energy levels are not sustainable, our relationships with food and time and ourselves are changing. The unexpected allows us to move more fully into the present moment. Watch what happens when an event you were looking forward to, is cancelled. Witness the threads that flow to disappointment, to having things move in an expected pattern. Breathe in gratitude for the opening allowing curiosity to be present. What will fill this space? We are being challenged to find comfort in the not knowing of the next moment. Challenged to be fully present rather than allowing routine and form to reduce us to conditioned, muted responses to life.
We can unhook. We can sever the ropes (that turn out to be only threads) that keep us tied. We are moving into formlessness. In order to do so, we have to allow the flow. Fluidity invokes grace. We can unhook from the imposed programming of productivity. We can allow ourselves to daydream, to putter, to drift. We can drop words like lazy, idle, layabout. We can let go of the judgment and move towards the joy. We have defined ourselves by what we produce in the world of form yet we are entering the formless. Yes, we will continue to be creative, we will take action, but more organically, more authentically in each moment. It will be with a sense of play that we knew as children, living in the world of magic and make believe.
Source is always present to infill the empty spaces. When we allow openings, when we sit until we feel a desire arise to move, we invite more of ourselves, more of the Godhead, to enter in. A perfect guest, She/He does not come uninvited. We must open the door and ask Her/Him in.
Those near and dear to me reach out when they need permission to listen to their hearts. I offer that permission to unhook, to let go, to step back. I encourage stepping out of form, allowing the flow to take them. I encourage radical self care. I encourage expression of every fear. I encourage feeling everything and letting it flow through. I encourage acceptance of the gift of grace. I offer a field of love that hears all, holds all without judgment. This we are allowed. The Creator does not judge us. The Creator loves us. There is no check list that we must complete to earn love. Love is. Love is given freely. It is time for us to embody this within ourselves and with everyone whom we interact.
Even love has been locked into form. A static form that does not allow anger, that only has a soft voice. Love is a flame that blazes truth. It can slice through illusion, it can wrap you in a pink blanket of fuzzy comfort, it can pull the rug from under your feet. It has the power of creation and that includes destruction. Often the darkest nights, have offered the greatest gift of love.
Just for today, let us give ourselves permission to unhook. To see each person anew, as who they are presenting themselves in this moment. To do each task as if for the first time. To look for magic, to smile more, to open our hearts more fully, to express gratitude for the beauty that surrounds us. It is all perspective, heaven or hell is our call. Attention and intention. Allowing the flow, accepting all that enters our world as a gift sent from our higher aspect to aid in our evolution. Peace is permissible, listening to our hearts is highly advised, loving ourselves, essential, imagining vital. Be this. I grant you permission.
