That old fisherman just headed down to the lake again, pole and bucket in hand. It’s so quiet here. I can hear the hollow sound from his bucket when he first sets it down on the ground. I like that. There’s a comfort in the ordinary. I grew up far from this tiny lake, surrounded by water. Fish and clams and minnows and fisherman were my everyday. This familiar scene runs very deep and soothes me somehow.
Little else does right now. I feel as if I am at a masquerade ball. We are dressing up in costume for business as usual, while beneath these masks it is anything but. We are unrecognizable. Nothing is at it seems.
A hawk circling high overhead, just swooped down low, a few feet in front of my eyes – as if on command. An omen. We are entering powerful times. Every cell of my body feels it. I couldn’t sleep last night. My “Mom” mask may be buying school supplies, but my light worker self can barely contain her excitement. It’s pretty wild to be contemplating the price of notebooks while simultaneously saving the world.
We are super heroes in disguise – We look like regular people, yet beneath these calm exteriors lie powerful forces. Don’t you feel like that?
It’s like every fantasy rolled into one. There’s good guys fighting corruption, space ships, natural disasters, help from the heavens and everlasting love. It’s all here and yet, while it goes on, we pay our bills, mow our lawns and talk about the weather.
We have families to raise, money to earn and a planet to save. Not just anyone could do this you know. It takes one powerful being to pull off such a stunt. Our masks are so well constructed the vast majority of the population will never even know they exist. We are that good.
We were chosen because of our ability, determination and power. We are the light – one force of absolute love here to lift a world out of darkness and propel her into a brilliant new dimension.
Our voice gets stronger all the time. You could hear the start of this new song with the OWS (Occupy Wall Street) movement. It continues. Just listen to what many of us, speaking as One, can do (see video below). We are exquisite.
Our efforts to topple corrupt regimes and institutions will set us free. All of us are discovering we have a voice, and our song just keeps getting louder, our harmony perfect. We are not debt slaves. We are love, and love cannot be stopped.
You did that. You are here because you knew there would come a day when you’d be needed. We may never take our masks off and that’s okay. We’re good with that. We know who we are.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
This time is one of tumult (uproar, confusion, noisy commotion). In order to perform a change of such magnitude, things have to break off. This will feel like a jolt in many instances. This will be necessary because so many here now have to be shown in no uncertain terms that they have a choice. They cannot ignore it any longer. You are deep within this time of the Shift. It is happening whether you see it or not.
Choices made now direct your days towards whatever future you are choosing. What is it that you are hoping to achieve?
Are you looking for miraculous? Miracles are possible now and they will take place not within ancient texts but before your eyes.
You came to participate. Know that what you are doing is just precisely what you’ve planned all along. Trust.
Our families, our bodies, our jobs, our locations, our friends and our lovers – were all chosen for this moment now. In order to get the most from each challenge and situation, all players are in place with their parts memorized.
You’ve come from a long and glorious life to participate. You’ve brought with you the tools you need to succeed. What is happening now is that you are remembering what was planned so long ago. What’s happening now is that your deepest truth is being recognized.
This change we are in is not something taken care of by gods or galactics – it is happening now because we are making it happen. In a very real sense we are the gods and the galactics.
From the occupy movement to the whistleblowers to those deep within the corruption, we are finding our voice and speaking out. We are making the change. We are shifting. It is us.
As you look around you will find your place, you part will seamlessly fit into your life. You will notice it feels as if you were born to do it. You were.
Listen to the quiet part of you that feels true. He is familiar. She is loving. It is you.
The greater part of you has been here always. Today we have more direct access to this wisdom. All we need do is take the time to listen.
Whether it is via a walk or a deep meditation – go within. It is vital now that you walk through these times with your head held up and your feelings sure. It is you that you must get to know. This time is ripe for self-awareness. The universe has granted us a brief moment to discover our truth – One Moment in Time. Use it.
This is a necessary activity. This will give you confidence and comfort in the days ahead. It is not time to depend on another. It is time to depend on you. Find your truth.
We are absolute and flawless pieces of divinity. Hold that thought always in your heart and your way will be clear. The only answer is love.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
In the world, there are many thousands “occupying”, declaring dissatisfaction with things the way they have been. Things are changing on so many levels. If I accept that we are making this all up, then I must also see that, as a collective, we are moving things around a bit - right now. We are finding a voice. We are challenging institutions and on the brink of taking control of not only our money, but our lives. I don’t know that this has ever happened world-wide, and it feels like an important step towards unity consciousness, towards empowerment. My hope is for a continuation of this movement towards unity, while retaining and utilizing individual power.
Personally, I realize that for unity to exist as a force, I must stop seeing separators. When I look at anything, I have noticed how my immediate reaction is to categorize it, label it even. Thoughts such as “there’s an overweight teenage boy, why is he wearing plaid?”, “here comes a crabby, skinny old lady”… do not serve my intent for oneness. In order for a shift in consciousness, I must stop separating out the wealthy 1% as evil, the old as helpless and the young as incapable. I must stop separating, period.
Here’s the thing, there is a fine line between noticing the differences and holding an opinion about them and labeling them. Life simply exists here as a platform in which to experience ourselves. True non-judgment is a very rare thing to discover in another human. It signifies an evolved soul.
Not judging does not mean living without preferences. I do not enjoy popcorn. I do not think there is something wrong with my children because they love popcorn. Perhaps, if I was unsure of my decision about popcorn, I would ridicule popcorn lovers and make them wrong for their choice. Perhaps I would attempt to get them to come over to my side, the side where all the intelligent, popcorn haters sit. This would bolster my self esteem, my belief in the “rightness” of my popcorn beliefs.
There are no “right” popcorn decisions, just as there are no “right” ways to live your life. All is choice. When you understand, absolutely that each choice you make is only a choice for a singular moment and nothing more, you become much less attached to the choices of others. Each life is a singular moment, filled with decisions/choices. Freedom is non-attachment. Freedom is love.
Each lifetime chosen provides a different approach, another way to experience creation. This is why there is no cause for fear. Fear only exists because you believe you can lose something – your life, your reputation, your money, your love – you cannot lose what isn’t real.
What is real is you. It is love. Love truly felt is something never lost. It is something no one can take from you. It exists as truth.
You know it as such simply because YOU exist. You are here. At your core you are love. The joy, the passion, the thrill of loving is so absolute because it is your very source. YOU are the source of your love.
