As water rolls rapidly down the creek, I, too, am inspired to fall into its embrace and flow with the current. The extent to which our personal current can excel or suddenly come to a halt is truly intriguing; our entire reality can change in the blink of an eye… with every simple choice we make, with every thought, every action. Everything we do not only affects our health, and our personal reality, but everything and everyone around us. We don’t have to be the same person as we were yesterday, and in truth, we never are the same person. Moment to moment, our breath changes as something catches our eye, or our heart. We will never be the same as we were one moment ago. As our perceptions change, whether a choice, or by something that stirs our spirit in a more positive direction, the entirety of Life can also switch from darkness to lightness.
I write about Oneness often, because I know it exists. I know that Oneness is all there is– I found myself saying, this week, “To live the Truth is the only way to live.” Still, I find it a struggle to trust and flow with the simple movement of messages from the Universe that are gently- or not so gently- tugging us along, catching our attention and bringing to light our actions, or our inactions. Why, the River calls, why do you resist the simple callings of your heart, why must you create barriers with your thoughts against the reality of your essence?
I will try not to make excuses, but I have some. The fear of not being heard, the constant projection of negative outcomes. To think of where these excuses might originate is a dangerous topic, one which is better to be left alone. We can pray for these to be shifted by the Being larger than us, we can give our worries to the Earth for transmutation. We can simply surrender to our flow, regardless of the outcome. It is a magical mystery that our Godly messages continue to push us forward towards greater healing, towards our truest core self. After being immersed, however, in the muddy landslide of our previous realities for lifetimes, No One Said It Would Be Easy. (In fact, there are a couple more old Sheryl Crow songs that come to mind regarding this current post that I will mention.)
Though we may be given various Godly messages throughout the day, and whether we trust them or not, whether or not we follow through; we still have to face the diversity of whether these messages will get through to the others involved. (Am I Getting Through?) Though we are all one, I have to ask myself if it is the thought of one or the other person… or is it something, some unseen force, between either of us that prevents the message from truly getting through? Is it the fear of not being able to face a reality that is so transparent, so Heavenly, that creates a discord and illusion of neglect~ not only in one on one connections, but the larger World? The greater cause?
If we ask ourselves, what is our mission, honestly? We may get answers, though sometimes daunting at first. If I can write bright light through all the discords of tension and fear, I will attempt to do that. The more we realize that of course, we are not the only ones who struggle and fight for truth, but that everyone is called to do so, the easier it will become. I have learned to rely more on the slightest internal messages, and trusting those, more so than outside influences or messages, however divine they may be.
It is comforting to know that those are always there, that we can always close our eyes and fall back, then be lifted up by something that shows us the answer we were looking for. I think it is a terrifying truth to know that perfection of a heavenly reality can exist suddenly, through the surrender and release of thoughts. To suddenly trust, and to suddenly fall, into the warm embrace of Unity into the wheel of life that is spinning, constant, and ever-changing… into the stream.
