This is the unraveling. Think of a rope. There are many strands interwoven to reinforce the ONE. It is actually made that way on purpose, for strength. It is ONE rope, yet within it, co-existing, are all these strands wrapped around each other. They each do the same thing from a different perspective – acting as ONE, yet distinctly unique.
As the unraveling proceeds those at the start of the chord move further and further from each strand. They are the first to notice the separation.
You at the front are right at the edge now, having pulled away long ago. You are feeling the separation from the rest. As the chord unravels at high speed, the base from which you began seems to disappear. It is as if you are alone and unsupported, as if the rope has vanished. Yet nothing could be further from the truth.
There is no truth in solitude. Those that seem furthest away are in fact instantly pulled to you with your eyes and heart. We are ONE, and you are the first to uncover this truth.
Those now pulled away for the very first time are looking around, grasping for a stronghold. Go to them. You only need to remind them - they are never alone. Witness the power of unity.
You are the brightest lights here to illuminate the process. The parts unraveled first (you) are weaving in and out and through each other at the other end – in new and unexpected ways. Our rope of unity is coming together, stronger than before. The paths and patterns of oneness are intricately, indestructibly gorgeous.
There is a noticing now. We see each other as if for the first time. Just yesterday I danced with, laughed with, joked with and stopped strangers in their tracks. These are fellow first responders, joyfully playing with our unity rope. I was also honked at, frowned at and ignored by those of us confused and frightened.
The absurdity of fear is occurring to all of us. This response is habitual, distasteful and fruitless. It may show up when the unraveling begins. Fear does physiologic harm to our bodies, and keeps us separate. We were meant to be together. Fear disappears with unity and light.
We knew when we began this dream how it would end, so we left ourselves clues. As we discover these self-hidden clues, we remember what they mean. It is all happening perfectly, just as we planned. We would have it no other way. The brightest of lights are necessary when it gets really dark. That would be us.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
