This dream that is ours
This dream that the world can wake up to itself
Through rapturous respect and radical reverence
This yearning for love
This unfurling request for tender living
This is not too much to ask
For this is the way of our soul when we let the sunlight ripple in our mind
And the breezes teach us how to touch
When we let the gaze of the deer fall softly into our eyes
And the salmons steady returning remind us how to bow to our own beginnings
When the forest floor finally shows us how to share
And the steady patience of the trees seeps into the curve of our own spines
We shall fall softly into the dance
Of our own becoming
And recognize ourselves in all things living
But first we must bow
That paves the path home

“And I saw a great hand reach for the earth. It pinched it between index finger and thumb and pulled it up, like taffy.”
There is a reconfiguration in the works right now. We see this as the ground splits, the winds roar, and as the mountains blow. Fires burn, not only what we love, but what they have been sprayed with from above.
Many will suffer, and are suffering. Remember, this is not a personal attack by some evil source. This is the planet attempting to spew the toxins we have given it to chew on. Remain firm in the knowledge you are loved, always have been, always will be. Do your best to care for others during these times, focus on something other than your pain, this will cause it to ease … this happening is a necessary factor, for the future of all life.
Those who have allowed the poisoning of the earth and all sentient beings will know of their deeds, full on. Their greed will not sustain them in the afterlife, and too bad for them should they not believe it.
The spirit realms are more real than anything else, and also the most consistent. A world of harmony will be, whether people are on board with its development or not.
Show up, shed past conditioning, create from the heart, and bless life with your inner presence. The truth is much larger than you may have previously understood, consciously, but subconsciously you know its reality.
That truth? It is here for me, for you, and for everything and everyone. It may hurt a little (or a lot) as we become aware of it. Breathe, and know the end of this life is not the end all.
Am I alive; Do I feel; Am I angry; Am I glad; Am I trying in my best effort to assist life; Am I walking with head buried in proverbial sands; Am I thinking beyond these small surroundings; Do I care for others … perhaps as equally as I care for myself?
If sincere about the desire to have answers to these questions, programmed ‘entertainment’ and exterior ‘noise’ will be shed, eliminated from the daily life and a steady allowance of that connection – the original world wide web – will be established once more. There is far too much feeding of subjects to people. It has become quite normal to eat up whatever television and others behind the scenes want to feed humanity with.
All life has been sharing knowledge for thousands of years through birth, and rebirth. This beautiful system in which we live allows us to grow through life times. Some say we are trapped here, however this is a place of evolution, generation after generation share these lessons we’ve learned. Creation is a constant and we can see plainly what we are capable of. When we look into our history and see the destruction and the power it was released into the earth with, we must remember that the opposite is just as true. It is waiting for us to decide whether we want to prove to ourselves we are capable of creating beauty, just as intensely or more than we have created destruction.
Hand in hand with the elements and the elementals of this world, a sacred union IS and anything is possible. From the deserts of life, we walk into lush forests. We can see that the arid places can … and are, becoming fruitful. Breathe.
Breathing deeply, energy grows within the body. Feeling the flow of life’s blood, Qi is raised. Hands cupped, the world in miniature form is visualized between them. Healing energies from Spirit are amplified through the breath, blown into this world between the palms.
All life benefits from these gifts given, acknowledged by humans, amplified by the life force carried into this world by those in flesh.
Union with those bygone and those yet to come, we heal so that we may enjoy the purity of the haven created for, and given to, us … WE.
During your morning meditations, or prayers … feel the pulse of life that flows through your hands. Imagine the planet there, between the cupped palms of your hands and feel the pulse of compassion emanating from them into the planet … ending suffering for all life, allowing a realization of compassion for each other, allowing the love for all of the animal kingdom. The contribution you make to this cause is much more powerful than you may have been taught to believe. YOU are a healer of the world.
