Four mornings ago, a red-tailed hawk flew directly in front of my windshield. It was carrying a dead squirrel. Immediately I considered the import of this and pulled over. It had perched itself low, on a tree right beside my car. For five minutes we had a sort of stare-off. It kept looking down at me. I kept looking up, through the window, at it. I didn’t have my phone so there are no pictures.
This was odd for a few reasons. I’ve never seen a hawk in this neighborhood. I’ve never seen one flying or landing so low, and I’ve never seen one with fresh kill in its talons or this close.
I’ve been told this bird is my totem. The feeling that immediately came through was “It’s over. You’re going to be okay. You’ve got this.” It was mixed with a bit of death (the squirrel) so that was confusing, yet maybe not. Things have to end so new things can begin. This is the natural way.
In this last week there’s been several more examples of unusual animal behavior. Many different animals seem unafraid of humans, coming in close proximity in ways never before witnessed. This hawk was no exception. A close friend has suggested that this means fear has left the planet. The animals are the first to sense the change.
Others are reporting an uptick of supernatural events. From miracle cures, to emerging portals, to telekinesis in plain sight. I’ve had several items disappear before my eyes, sometimes re-appearing moments later.
I hear each of us reporting the same symptoms and even cataclysmic happenings, all at different times and impacting different relationships, items, body parts and belief systems.
We are all doing the same thing in a slightly different sequence. As we do, some of us look far ahead at things in our future. They then look back and urge us forward with either warnings about what to watch out for, or stories of magnificence we won’t want to miss. We will all experience some version of this shift.
Your version will speak directly to you. It will include every element you need to examine and lay it out for you in the clear light of day so you don’t miss it. My version will be slightly different, but equally, potentially heartbreaking and fabulous.
We may not get to the fabulous until we get past the heart break. This is new for us, so the order isn’t defined. Yet it feels that way.
Hearts only break over unmet expectations. This is so important that it’ll be said again. Hearts only break over unmet expectations.
We are reflections of each other. There is no one here but you. If there is something about me that seems to initiate joy or frustration or fear or power or hatred or love or heartbreak, it is reflecting back what it is you have going on. These things did not come from me. These things come from you.
You are the match. When you come into contact with the right striking surface, the fire burns. Without that contact, there is no fire.
It is why we become human at all. For the contact.
What happens with oneness and what is happening right now is that all of life is becoming a striking surface as we fully realize the match that we are. We are individual matches, as well as striking surfaces – a two-sided thing really. We cannot light ourselves. Yet, right now, we are surrounded by striking surfaces, and we see them.
As a result, we are seeing ourselves at every turn, starting fires all over the place. It is ticking us off, making us sick and we are becoming humble. It’s beginning to resemble a bonfire.
Now, back to the beginning. If this is truth, and we are all matches, what is it about a striking surface that could break our heart? What expectation could you place on a striking surface, other than to be available to initiate a fire if you want one?
Would you ask that striking surface to hide its truth so the fire wouldn’t happen?
Well, you could, and a few years back that may have even worked.
Not now. Today, and looking ahead, its each striking surface knowing exactly what it is, and surrounding you with plenty of chances to start fires all over the place if you need to.
You see, the light is only really necessary in the dark.
Don’t be afraid of the dark. You are a match, surrounded with opportunities to light it up. No expectations. No disappointments. No heartbreak.
Just you being you and the rest of us being the rest of us and all of us lighting the way for each other.
You are the ones
You have anchored the light
It is done
With so much appreciation for your light,
