It is hard to belive that it is that time of year again! The Easter week-end is approaching. Here in South Africa it is a four day holiday when everyone "takes off" for the coast for a last celebration of relaxation in the sun before the cold weather sets in for Winter. Last year, at this time, I was in Brazil, and so much seems to have happened to me in the last year. We are certainly changing and transforming at high speed!
Around Feb 1st each year, is the second of *8* Sacred Seasons ~ *INVITING* a renewal of the Light. The light is returning, the days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter. This is the season you commit to the process of nurturing the intentions you set for the new year at Winter Solstice. In order to create anew, sacrifices and changes must be made. This time of year coincides with several celebrations, when many cultures give up something cherished in an effort to cleanse and clear a space for renewed growth, within your Being and your environment. This is about clearing a space for the *new* to come in.
We live in a wonderful world---and that does not mean that our world is not faced with enormous challenges. We live wonderful lives---and that does not mean that our lives are not filled with enormous challenges. Our world is, and our lives are.
In this period after the March Equinox, we are experiencing a time of Peace and Calm after the turbulence that led up to the Equinox point of Balance. It is a time of readjustment and realignment, as we settle into the new place in which we find ourselves and prepare for the shifts and changes that will come as we move towards the Solstice and the "New Year" on the 26th of July.
Inevitably, you are led back to your own inner sources. The conscious mind creates and discovers useful systems for understanding much of life. Yet when asked to speak to what came before all of this, or in any way the origins of things, you are all, inevitably, led back to your own inner sources. Why not begin there? Where all knowing exists and align yourselves? This is the call of the Spring Equinox: alignment and balancing of energies. How do you do this? By entering as fully and as frequently as you can into the flow of life and enjoying the ride.
Question: I really enjoy good food and I think that eating is a joy. I also enjoy listening to cultural music, designing and wearing colorful clothing, and painting provocative art. I have heard that in the near future we will feed ourselves through the solar waves of our local sun, lose our hair, and even wear the same garment. I can see how this might simplify things considerably, but why would our evolution require us to abandon customs that are unique to Earth? Isn't the earth exceptionally precious as it is, diversity and all?
The first 2 1/5 months of 2010 have been frustrating and disappointing for many people. We were so excited to get done with 2009 and experience the creativity and fun that was promised for 2010. But we've had to sort through and release some old stuff first to make sure that what we create is fully in the new energy. This can manifest as loosing interest is a project or dream that you have had for a long time.
As we are watching the old world paradigm wind down we are beginning to see the world as it truly is, without the benefit of the blinders, rose-colored glasses or other means we use to hide the aspects of life we do not want to acknowledge. Our eyes are now open to where and how we give our power away, allow others to take control, and avoid responsibility for ourselves.
There is a lot of misinformation circulating about what will happen in 2012. Most of it is fear-based and predicting things like cataclysmic earth changes and the end of the world. In Truth, we have already entered the initial impulse of the Shift of the Ages. We began our ascent up the Spiral of Evolution into the 5th Dimension between the Lunar and Solar Eclipses in November 2003, during an event that was coined Harmonic Concordance. That does not mean, however, that 2012 is not important. It is very significant.
You radiate love in the same way that a candle flame radiates light and it has nothing to do with who or what you love. Humanity has become hopelessly lost in love. We lose ourselves in the object of our love and in the process, we lose ourselves. We disconnect from the source of the love, which exists at the very center of our Being.
