I have been spending a great deal of time in gratitude and light for friends and family. I am learning that instead of seeing them in need and me somehow sending something to them which they lack, I see them in their glory, inner strength and innate wisdom. The sacred wholeness in them shines and touches the same sacred wholeness within me. I often feel like we are enfolded together in an affirmation of life.
As I went into my shamanic journey this morning, my helping spirits pointed out that I am not treating the Being of Humanity with the same honor, respect and faith that I extend to my friends. I have been thinking of and writing about the Being of Humanity as a fevered and fearful child. I have been feeding the inner assumption that the unity of humanity and creation is broken. I have been arrogant in taking the “caring mother” view and working from the illusion that there is something wrong with my species and with the flow of planetary shifts and changes.
My guides in the unseen world invited me to hold the Being of Humanity with respect and honor, unconditional love and light. From this perspective what we are currently experiencing is the newest step in our human evolutionary process. Our species carries within it all we need for this transformation, even as it carried the potential to walk on two legs, and to learn how to use fire. We have been working our way toward this growth crisis for hundreds if not thousands of years. Every living being who has shared in the life of this planet has played a part in creating what is unfolding now.
We have finally come to the place where we cannot be fooled into thinking that the micro shifts and adjustments of our intellect will allow us to regain control and dominance of a failing mechanistic world view. Our illusions are being shattered and our thought patterns are being rewritten. The pressure is building to provide the needed energy to propel us from this cliff into a new understanding of our place within creation.
Humanity is not alone in all of this. We are part of the interwoven unity of the Web of Life. All of the beings of nature and the elements of which we are all formed are with us as we move through these shifts and changes. I am grateful for every living being who is on the Earth right now, and I greet all that is coming into form every day. Each one of us carries our own unique gifts and energy to contribute to this Web of Life as we are lifted and carried along our path.
It all comes back to the words from Paul McCartney’s song, Blackbird, “All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.” That is the light in which I hold all of us today. And as I do, I feel the light of our sacred being shining bright.
