Living in the perspective that all life is a mirror to see ourselves more clearly is the path I choose to continue to walk in these brilliant times of transformation. Our power to not only meet change but also to be a potent ripple within change roots deeply in the internal realms of observation, reflection and presence to the opportunities offered with each awakening to a new day. As we step into the world of the now, what do we see? Can we look into the mirror of the moment and see the reflection of ourselves, our connection to all that is? From this vantage point we can then stand consciously in our power to transform separation into connection.
We can CHOOSE to refine our fears into love, our impotence into aliveness, our grief into compassion, our resentment into kindness, feeling alone to being al-one, and so on. The indigenous people around the world are once again reminding us of how to stand in these times: To show up in peace and the awareness that all life is sacred; to remember the elements of water, air, earth and fire are not only our brothers and sisters that allow us life on this planet but also vital components of our own bodies. In protecting the water, we are protecting our livelihood, our ability to flow with grace and ease through all changes no matter how turbulent. To stand for the earth is to remember our roots grounded in love and union. To meet the fires of refinement is to activate our ability to purify old patterns that no longer serve and fuel the radiance of our own light. To commune with all that is with each breath is to restore our infinite connection to our own souls and the collective consciousness of Creator, God, Goddess, Allah, Spirit, etc. These are the truths that bind us all together in the ocean of this human experience. The mirror of the external world is there to turn us inward and find the reflections that apply. From this inner exploration we can rise together out of the ashes of old forms into a world rebuilt on wholeness, where our diversity and sameness are valued equally.
To those of us that live in the United States…the world is watching how we all meet this opportunity to stand in our original intention that is inherent in our name: Can we stand as a UNITED mirror of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual STATES of being human? We have shown what it can look and feel like to be separate and at war with one another AND… we, in our homes, our communities, in our bodies, our hearts, know how to join hands and come together one by one united for the highest good of all that is not about politics, religion, gender, ethnicity, cultures, etc…it’s just about being human and an infinite, evolving consciousness.
To humanity as a whole, we are one family AND… we know what it means to love one another. BE the peace, unity and love you envision in your heart and soul and our world will reflect that back to us. This is a time to be proactive on both the internal and external realms of existence. Each one of us will find our own balance and rhythm that will create circles upon circles of ripples in the collective ocean of this beautiful, watery Earth we all live on.
