As the pace of awakening quickens, there is a growing feeling of pressure to go within to force open closed doors and expose hidden treasures. There is a feeling of impatience to get from where we are now to where we want to be, for the ‘in-between’ stage feels arduous, overwhelming and confusing. Yet, we are in this stage for a reason, so is forcing the process really the best choice?
It is all too easy to become lost and disorientated when trying to navigate the ebb and flow of the currents of life. Sometimes we can feel lost in an eddy or a maelstrom, unable to break free. Other times we can lose the wind in our sails and feel a deep sense of frustration with the apparent stillness and inertia.
Standing in Truth, living Truth etc are all popular phrases now as we continue the journey of re-awakening. Truth has many meanings from ‘being true’, to ‘sincerity in action or character’, to ‘faithfulness and sincerity combined with reality’. Yet, when we think about standing in Truth, we immediately gain a sense of the essence of what is meant, for we connect to the power of the words; to their true meaning.
It’s amazing what we see when we open our eyes. There are many reasons why we choose not to move through life with our eyes wide open: from fear to closed-mindedness, from distractions to over-focusing. It seems that for many of us, to make a conscious choice to open our eyes involves facing some, or all of these, head-on.
As the path of awakening continues, and as sleepwalkers stir all around, there is a sense that the new wave of consciousness is now filtering into all aspects of life. As we take a moment to look around at All that we Are, it seems clear that everything is changing; we are just not the same as we were yesterday or the day before. Whilst some of these shifts are subtle, others are far from this as they catapult us forward (and sometimes backward) in life.
What would you do if you were given an extra day, 24 whole hours? Would you carry on without even noticing? Would you even consider an extra day as a gift? Or would you take the time to contemplate the chance to make the most of this opportunity?
Over the past few weeks there has been a powerful sense of shift and re-emergence. As the inner (and outer!) winds howled and the rain cascaded down in torrents, there has been an undeniable sense of breakthrough as the chrysalis cracked and a new wave of clarity began its slow journey towards the sunlight.
Life has been throwing out more than its fair share of challenges recently, and many of us are feeling exhausted, tired and worn out at the process. Of course, when we stay centred and connected to the tranquillity within, we can ride these storms, but for many of us, we don’t always manage to achieve this heightened state of bliss, we are only human, after all! Yes, practice does make perfect, but for now many would be forgiven for feeling like they have been through the wash and back again!
There is a strong sense of shift and movement on just about every level of consciousness at the current time. As we continue to feel a collective and growing sense of emergence, new life and new possibilities, it seems that through the shift and chaos, we are beginning to find our feet.
