As Labor Day rapidly approaches and Summer rains turn to Autumn leaves; the days grow shorter while the nights grow longer.
Might the wonder of summer simply be the amazing variety of emotions and events that can happen when it’s warm and relaxed?
The new season of opportunity is always here and now. There’s always something more expansive to learn, another insight to perceive and contemplate, another dream to be dreamed.
Elevation education is awakening to the passion of ongoing living, loving, laughing, learning and lightening up.
The transformation begins here and now with every breath and heartbeat, every awareness of our presence and process, every thought, word and action.
In alchemy, the key ingredient for this ongoing transformation is reverence. The more attention and awareness we give to the sacredness of Life the more we belong to and become an integrating part of it.“
Rather than rejecting and denying portions of our own being, seeking some kind of illusory perfection, wholeness integrates the contraries.
Mystics and visionaries have engaged this spiritual depth of the interior universe for millennia and through it, slowly felt their way Home.
It’s been a revelation of waking up to the latent ‘power within’ and how our lives are now essential to create a new acceptance for the ‘other’ in us all.
Where’s the wholeness which embraces brokenness as an integral part of life? Where’s our compassion for the the poor, sick, hungry and least of our fellow sojourners?
I again began to listen to the whispers of my heart which led me into places I never imagined and taught me lessons I didn’t know I needed to learn.
Each time we failed each other I had to stop, drop my agendas, calm and center within, then patiently continue the friendly game.
Practice Self Remembering. Become more and more aware of who you Truly are. Transcend, include and embrace all of it.
This resonance and feeling of wholeness became an awareness I realized was always here and available to everyone.
This is the work of changing the world by changing ourselves. It’s owning our imperfections so they may be gifts of healing and wholeness.
I’m sensing that as we give more attention to these experiences, we will come to know, understand and cultivate them; thus awakening to the soulful serenity in all Life.
Understanding is an exploration into the mystery of the known and unknown that seeks ever greater comprehension, significance and inference.
As one of millions of elders in our earth community I’m not giving up on reverence for Life. I’m doubling down on a renaissance of consciousness for our global village.
