What a sight in the sky the other night: clear twilight blue, Full Moon Rising in Capricorn to the left of us, and Venus next to Jupiter in the constellation of Leo to the right of us. Nights like this remind everyone who chooses to look up that we are part of something so much bigger than us. These planets, and this Earth, have been here long before us, and will be here long after.
I am reminded of this constantly as we drive through this part of the US that I love so much with real life faces in the rocks staring off into the distance. The stories they could tell!
It is so easy to get bogged down with stuff that in the grand scheme of things will not matter one iota when it comes time to pass on from here. When you catch yourself worrying about something, take a moment to ask yourself: Have I been in this situation before? Has it all worked out okay before? How will I feel about this situation on my last day of life?
Do you believe that there is something greater than you looking out for you? Connect with that energy and invite it into your heart.
When we see politicians and other head honcho's holding on to their illusion of power, determined to fight to the last breath as they try to maintain an outdated system of control as is being so vividly represented right now regarding who marries who (congratulations US and Ireland, sigh Australian government), know that we are seeing a dying system thrashing against an emerging, awakening new humanity. One that truly knows, in our heart of hearts, what is important, what is good and right for all, what is kind to the Earth, what is healthy for us and our children.
Our collective awakening is not about some ethereal connection to Spirit that lasts 10 minutes during meditation. It is about - among other things personal to each individual - recognising ourselves as Citizens of a Cosmos that is so much bigger than us. It is about remembering who we are in the grand scheme of things. It is about walking and living a higher truth and consciousness in every aspect of our lives, in every system in our society, on this planet Earth. I am so happy and excited that we are seeing more and more evidence every day that this is the direction millions of people are choosing to go toward.
We don't know what will happen in our tomorrows. We don't even know if we are guaranteed a tomorrow. What we can do is live a good day today, and have every intention to make our tomorrows great ones for ourselves, our family, our community and our planet. And when our days or the days of our loved ones are not so great, we at least now have such a greater knowing of how to deal with those days in a better way than we would have in our yesterdays.
How are your days going these days?
