When the “worst” or “best” thing happens, you find out who you really are. It’s just the way it is with humans.
Each day, you wake up and follow some sort of routine or path. Depending on your age, the time of year, part of the world and day of the week you are in, your life follows a predictable pattern. This pattern is performed by a predictable you; you the mom, you the son, you the dentist, you the student, you the waitress, you the bus driver, you the dad, you the teacher, you the current costume you are wearing. Bits of YOU may peek out from around your corners, yet the vast expanse that is your truth, your core stuff, stays behind the shield.
Today, I’d like to take down some of those shields. Personal moments have ripped them away and I suspect you may be helped if I do so here, on this screen.
This Ascension trip is taken without shields. It is taken without anything or anyone else at all. Like birth and death, we face it alone.
What I’m looking at today, as far as I am along the way, (and until recently I had imagined this was pretty darn far) is an empty place. It is the place that had been filled with “other”. Other to validate (me), other to comfort (me), other to blame, other to pre-occupy my life with.
“Join me on a Love Quest”, which was just published this month, chronicles and offers for your participation, the journey taken 7 years ago from forgiveness of self to I AM presence.
Yet, I stand here today knowing that the road taken then, all those years ago, dropped me off right here. And… I just noticed that there was no one else on my stop. It’s only me.
It’s a bit of a shock.
Oh, I feel the others, there are lots of them – you, our non-terrestrial friends, my higher self, my angels. Yet right here, right now, this next part, the stop coming soon, waits for me alone.
It will not show up until I am ready, it makes no difference how many others are aware of what is going on.
This particular door, the one leading to my own unfoldment and evolution and to what we are calling Ascension, is only opened when I grab the handle and swing it wide. It is then, unencumbered, that I walk through.
So today, having just realized that my stop is approaching, I begin to un-pack. For this is a trip without baggage.
I’ll set down the remnants of expectation, sorrow and disappointment. I’ll abandon need for validation. I’ll release my grip on must-have. I’ll let go of my demands.
The empty places left behind I’ll saturate with acceptance, drape lovingly with agreement, surround with a forgiving smile and believe them all full to bursting with self-love.
For self-love asks us only to know ourselves complete. There is no “other” from which it springs. This stop to Agape is yours alone.
You’ve got the only ticket.
When all of the “others” have abandoned you, when you finally notice the open door, your full heart will propel you to open it.
It is you that you’ve been waiting for.
To be continued…
With appreciation for you always,
