Happy New Year. It is interesting, we sit here on the Cusp of the Changes yet to come and I think some people expected it to hit with a hiss and a roar. Announcing to all and sundry, Whee I am here the New Energy.... Hmmm not quite, for there is one thing that I have learned the hard way about this plane, this earth plane, is you have to earn stuff. Not material stuff, but understanding and wisdom only happens with the passing of both events and time.
Anyway as I wished my friend goodnight in the early hours of the morning. I crept outside to the trees and whispered my thoughts to the tree people. I watched the stars move and the satellites crawl across the sky like skittering crabs. Funny, in that moment nothing has changed. It is us who acknowledge the passing of time. There is no time on the other side, other dimensions are not as time orientated as what we are here.
So how on earth can we assume that with a hiss and a roar the new energy will be here? Hmm there is work to be done and the revolutions of the human body cannot be increased faster than what they are or we will simply drop dead from the force of it. This year will be about change, the way we look at things, the way we interact with people, understanding and wisdom come from within this year. The changes will be subtle simply because we cannot be hit with a mallet in terms of acknowledging or retaining the understanding. When we are hit with a mallet it makes us do one of two things. a) either recoil in shock, or b) avoid being hit with a mallet again, thereby never taking a risk again. No mallets allowed at this crucial time in the evolution of spiritual growth.
It's also about understanding, what you sought before in understanding externally, from others, now becomes more redundant. You are no longer driven by Contracts of Learning, Agreements with others (although some still are), you are not longer pushed with a drive to prove points, get even, stress your point of view. Some people tell me that they have lost their motivation. Hmmm no you haven't you have just reached a point of evolutionary growth which enables you to choose the way forward.
In a nut shell, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly where no man has gone before.... Oh wait no.. That was Star Trek. However, there is an element of truth in it. You get to explore new potential, new possibilities, unimagined realities and where? Within the truth of you. Want to kick this year off to a new beginning. Start with you. All of what you seek, the knowledge lies within you. Start being who you are supposed to be.
Don't know how? Look closer into you. See the qualities you refuse to acknowledge. When someone compliments you. Do you screw up your nose, brush aside what they say? Hmm most do. Acceptance of self is hard but the way forward into the Enlightenment of Understanding purpose is in accepting self. No longer driven, this is where the answer lies.
So from where I sit, the world stretches into new possibilities, new understanding, and the planning of the culmination of energies has been a long time in the making. Cannot rush it, cannot mallet it, step boldly into the New Year and take only what you need. (Undies and socks may be crucial).
Open your heart to the truth of you, the beauty of you, for you no longer require external poking and prodding, you need to look at you. Your enlightenment comes from that, what you have hidden from yourself for so long. Be all you can be and shine into the New Year. XX
