I offer a quick trip to one midway point within the current truth of the way we are choosing to live upon our planet… a little road trip to what is currently happening today at one of the most remote places on our planet, Midway Island:
Allowing the seeing, thinking and feeling of the full responsibility for and impact of our creations by the choices of the way we are currently using the natural resources on this planet is of paramount importance for producing real change at this stage of the game called Earth life. Do we have the courage to experience the quality of our actual destruction past just the nebulous quantifying of if?
For me, real change is all about a process of witnessing what is happening as it is happening and then allowing what is seen to illicit an honest feeling from within it (said many times here before, but well worth saying again: trying to feel ok when one is not ok, does nothing whatsoever to move one toward actually being ok).
When I look around in the world, there is often profound grief initially to be felt when seeing the repeated death of what were the living canaries in our collective coalmine. When I look to see with those eyes of truth, then it is about using feeling their death to honor their sacrifice by having the courage to do the work I need to then transform this experience into real change. If you change:
change behavior = you are an activist
change thought = you are an advocate
change feeling = you are an artist
change consciousness = you are a creator
We are killing our planet. We are killing all life birthed on it. However, it is not too late to change this. Once we understand that we are doing this from within our experience, it is never too late to get closer to the core, to the source points where deep and lasting change can come from.
It is possible to make the current deserts of our external reality bloom again by becoming the change we want to see. This is the deep alchemy available within us all to touch the creation points as the creators of the experience ourselves. It is to look upon our creations and feel the pain transformed by the power of love that we are. Then, rather than just applying bandages by changing actions, thoughts and feelings (which only ever can address the symptoms), we become the awareness of creation birthing change from within the experience to begin with.
We feel what we feel and then we birth what it will birth. I too feel the pain, but I choose to let it lead to my expanding consciousness by accepting my role as it’s creator and then changing my creation. Grief into beauty. Terror into joy. All fueled by the love that we are.
And on this front, from the place of my contemplations at home today, may I re-offer the beginning point in understanding, with it’s accompanying prayer as shared by Chris:
“May (y)our lives be filled with grief and terror and beauty and joy and love”. -C. Jordan
And adding another voice, continuing the message on, full of what I find to be profound hope:
“The spiral of creation is not static. It is a living, evolving, emergent system of extreme creativity.” -N. Kramer
May we enjoy being part of the infinite changes while exploring in the world of experience today. -x.M
