The road to wholeness is often a twisted and complicated path. The more we learn, the more we realize how difficult it is to really understand the great design that is our life.
In every moment we are creating our reality. Each choice, each action modifies the external world. When we are unconscious, we are at the whim of the telepathic agreement field currents that create what we call reality.
I love to travel because going to other countries and being exposed to other agreement fields makes me realize that possibilities are vast and various. In those moments I understand just how malleable reality can be and how caught up we can become in the agreement field in which we belong or choose to participate.
May brings with it the feeling of connectedness to all that is. Begin to open to a larger connectedness that is humanity. Become aware of ways we can work together. Notice how we are working against each other.
Over and over again, humanity loves to create separateness. Separateness creates conflict, which causes suffering and needless fear, perpetuating beliefs that dehumanize others.
Through conscious awareness and clarity, we learn the deeper lesson: By finding commonalities rather than the differences, we can resolve conflict. When we look to each other as companions along the path of life and love, our eyes do not become clouded by fear and uncertainty. We see ourselves reflected back in each other. As equals walking the pathways of karma, love and life, we can become more creative in how we express truth to others—ways that allow opening rather than closure.
If we can step beyond the level of attachment where the old forms of war, conflict and revenge reside, then we can allow the spirit inside each of us to guide us toward harmony.
Take this month to nurture new ideas into aliveness. Allow a possibility to emerge within you that has lain dormant for a long time. Reach out to others who can feel your heart and intent. And love those who are not ready to see the fullness that you are becoming.
It is only by example that we learn to trust and understand other ways of being. Your good intentions will be blocked by those who are not ready and do not understand. You cannot force your beliefs onto others. You can only live your life in accordance with the deepest core truths that move you and motivate your heart to love.
We are beginning to feel into a completely different possibility—moving not into air but into water. You will feel the tide turning and the shift happening. All you have to do is follow the flow of your heart. Let something magical move you into uncharted waters. Feel the wind fill your sails and know that you are embarking on a new adventure that is taking you beyond your mind, beyond your knowing, and into a place where you store your deepest self.
May is the month to prepare for this shift. We cannot continue in the old way. It has become too exhausting. You do not want to be Don Quixote fighting illusory warriors. It is time to get into the heart that beats your soul into aliveness. It is a beautiful heart. It has great knowing and wisdom. Trust it and it will show you the miracle of who you are.
As I write this in late April, it feels appropriate to end with these words from the Dalai Lama: “You must not hate those who do wrong or harmful things; but with compassion, you must do what you can to stop them — for they are harming themselves, as well as those who suffer from their actions.”
