There is a wave of spirituality on all levels these days. It is understandable with this hectic world, we reach to understand our spiritual nature, a way to find peace amidst chaos. So much going on personally, in the larger world and it seems challenge is all around us. So what is this drive, this desire in us to find a new grounding, a new value to make sense of things? It is our call to really rewrite what is important to us, Our way to rework our definitions of happiness, success, a life well lived.
As I have rode through my own transformation, seeking a new expression without none of the usual pieces of life I knew, I can tell you it is about finding the lightness of things. No matter what s going on about us, to find humor, lightness and simple joy is the way to ride. I also find that staying in the areas I can control or have influence, bring greater lightness and joy.
I may be concerned for the larger world yet I have little control there especially as I write a new chapter. No news for me, no againstness about the larger world works best. Others would say, but you must know what is happening yet do I need to? Does it inspire me to be a better person, help others and appreciate the day before me? Or does it depress me, make me feel limited and small, unable to move? I find the news paralyzes me . I feel the larger world will just have to take care of itself for a moment while I spread joy and sparkle in the places and people around me. It creates a lighter attitude so I bring some goodness to the world.
Seeking things that bring me joy a much worthier task than saving the world or even judging the state of it. I have power in my world when I can inspire and find places and people where I can make a difference. I build community and promote classes that support others to find their joy, their spirit, their inward compass no matter what goes on around them. Inspiring people to find their inward spirit, balance, their place of inspiration supports the world in its own way. We need calm, grounded people in this world. Able to support whatever occurs with clarity over informed people that feel helpless and stressed. That adds more panic to an already negative situation.
Some may be inspired to step into world change and I admire that. It is not my call at this time in a way of politics or renewing the state of affairs. My call is to support others bright spirit and value as an individual to add unto the world their gifts. To realize the innate power in them, the unique gifts that our world needs. Adding love, light and healing to their circle and many of us doing this in fact, can truly effect the world. I look to "lighten" up things which is the true meaning of enlightenment.
Supporting our truth and true spirit to shine is a big work in this world. We are told to be so many things and to produce in certain ways to be successful and happy yet they are not working. I find daily joy, inspiration and fun is success. Working all the time in crappy conditions to maintain things that are symbols of success keeps you very busy doing things that are uninspiring. For some this gathering of things works and I inspire them to go for it. For others their are different ways to a life well lived. I support us all to define that according to our personal, spirit nature so we have more joy in this world.
It is a unique time and a transition from the right/ wrong, black/white world, considered the Piscean Age to a more collaborative, creative world where the individual is honored as its unique gift. The Aquarian Age of group mentality while honoring the units that make it up is being grounded. I may not see this full shift but I can support bringing in a more unified world. It only makes sense and it takes those of us who see it to hold and prepare for the wiser, more expansive generations in the evolution of humanity. It is the bigger picture going on in our human experience.
When the world or ourselves goes through transition, change, shift, humor, lightness, silliness even is a key to expansion. When we don't know whats next, when expanding brings uncertainty, fear and panic responses are natural. We all like to know what is next and how to prepare. Yet it is a time of not knowing and I am not so sure we ever even get much knowing of what is next in life. All the planning can be kiboshed so easily. In light of that, I find accepting, seeing what is occurring and finding ways to cooperate the best plan there is. Often that makes me laugh for I can't believe some of the things that go on in my world or the greater world. Maybe it starts out as a nervous laugh for I am in shock. But laughter it is which creates a lighter vibration than fear or panic. So I flow with it.
If we do not seek ways to lighten up, to light up, to shine on not matter what conditions present themselves, it appears we would all be depressed, angry and afraid. These are the options. I choose the lighter forms and seek to create this with support of study, elixirs, healing treatments, walks outside, connecting with like minded, using my support group of family and friends, practices in self care and self love. Staying in my circle of influence as Steven Covey calls it. I keep my vibe as high as possible in an effort to support the larger picture with this lightness and joy. .
Do consider the power you have to be lighter toward all things. The seriousness is truly not so helpful. What is serious today in 2 weeks is nothing and there was nothing so serious about it. I find facing death or others facing death as serious and not much else. Even that has it's lightness in many circumstances. If it is not present, I don't consider it very serious at all. I have lived long enough to know what I worried or stressed about, turned out ok and I still continued on. If I have done it thus far, then I can continue with most anything.
Make it a practice to find more lightness, en-lighten-ment. We need more of it in our world and it supports all by raising your own vibration. It is a practice, I have created the habit over time and continue to work it. It is very valuable to happiness, health, well being, a good life. Otherwise, you are just an angry, whining, panicked, fearful beings and that is dis ease! It will end in disease. It will create a very hard life that feels like you have no control. No one feels good coming from this place. It is your choice each day. Find the light or play in the darkness which is the larger energy field.
This choice is simple to me! I find more things funny than serious and it suits me well!! A giggle one of my mantras. It is not always well received but I have grown to not care. It suits me!! And who else am I trying to please anyway? We all add to the world what we choose. I choose LIGHT! You might want to check it out and see if it works for you!
