Well folks, some of the news of rioting and hateful behavior is sobering and shocking, and yet it’s good to have a sense of what is actually happening. My hope is that for all of us it galvanizes a willingness to do everything we can on the positive side. And, of course, choosing LOVE over fear and anger is the primary work.
It’s quite strange, to say the least, to be living the experience that our wise elders and prophecies have predicted for generations – a time when great shaking must take place to loosen the hold on the old ways and open to the new. I’ve always wondered what it would look like, and this certainly seems to be at least part of it. Those power-hungry and greedy find chaos and disciplined shut-down, perhaps even of democratic process in a vital election year, to be beneficial to their causes.
Crisis, crucial moments, always imply a cross-roads where we get to actively choose our path into the future. Prophecy says this is a time when a new level of Love will blossom, and regeneration of all Life burgeon from there. Yet, even the most conscious and willing of us may not find ourselves at that higher level. So what we are called upon to do, from what I can see, is find the highest and clearest Love we can generate in ourselves (through bringing those radiant memories into our bodies so fully that we literally feel them) and making a practice of sending that vibration into our world – whether the person walking 6 feet across from us on our street, angry people rioting in the streets, or hungry children in refugee camps across the world. Don’t forget the animals and trees and plants and water. Add some GRATEFULNESS into the mix, and you have a winning combination.
Step up. Take care of and be there for everyone you can in any way. Love opens us to offer our best; Love transforms and regenerates; Love is the finest medicine.
Remember, it’s a PRACTICE and Life depends upon it. It’s not too tough an assignment, since having Love vibrant in your body and pouring forth is one of the most wonderful feelings in the human form. I think the Great Mother planned it that way.
I tell my students: there are only a few reasons NOT to do this practice ~
1. ignorance of Love’s transformative power,
2. thinking that you aren’t enlightened enough to do it,
3. and just plain old laziness.
a. You aren’t ignorant (although I usually spend two days in class illustrating the magic potential of Love for humans and all Life).
b. If you have ever had a moment of feeling Love – giving or getting it – you are qualified.
c. And it’s time to get your butt up off the inner couch and do the work we came to do. This is not some light game that is playing out here. Everyone counts and it’s a participatory sport….
For me, here in the quietness of our garden home, it means being incredibly grateful; getting my hands in the rich soil; giving love to seeds doing their amazing thing of becoming food plants; spreading Love across the countryside on bike rides; writing and sharing as much goodness as I can through modern technologies; and remembering that Love created everyone and lives in each of us; we just need to find and use it….
Wishing you very well on a day of sweet and soaking rain. It’s that natural lesson in how our constant, gentle soaking of the world with Love, will produce an irresistible flowering.
Love is FIERCENESS too. FIERCENESS is not aggression or meanness, it’s about behavior correction and boundaries. A mother dog, when bitten on the ear by the tiny, sharp teeth of her playful pup, gives an intense snarl and “glare”. It’s a big NO without physical harm, and she means it; the message is clear!!! A couple experiences of this, and the baby gets the lesson, the boundary of good behavior.
So Fierceness is about boundaries and standing up for what you are willing to accept or not, what you love or know to be important. You are able to be fierce about things that you love. It’s the mother bear energy; you’ll stand up to a giant if they are trying to hurt your child. So it’s time to be fierce! to say an absolute and unqualified NO to those things that threaten life you care about! “No, that’s not OK ~ you don’t get to do that in my space; no, you don’t get to do that in my world.”
For example, most grandmothers love their grandkids dearly, yet often I see them choosing, out of laziness or habit, to use drier sheets that contain intensely dangerous chemicals that threaten bees and other small life important in the chain that gives us food. If they were to connect the dots and get in touch with how much their love the little ones and want them to have a healthy life, it would be easier to take a stand about what kind of products they support with their buying power. You can say a big NO with your dollars.
Right now, we are getting an object lesson in how connected EVERYTHING in the world is. There are a whole lot of things to take a stand about…… Pollutants of every kind; untested, damaging vaccines; items and food shipped from far away; devastating 5G radiation; unkindness and hatred; greed and stinginess; the list goes on and on. “Courage” means full-hearted; full of Love. Be willing to say a heartful NO, and live it!
And about reasons for not sharing your highest love with the world, I forgot:
4. being stingy.
And there’s no reason for it. Popular culture sells the idea that there is only so much love, and you better hang on to yours. THAT IS SO MUCH BS, I can hardly believe we buy it.
You are MADE of LOVE, Creator and Mother Earth pour love into you every moment, every day. When you give it, you not only get to experience its exquisite and healing nature in your own body, you also bless the world around you. The more you pour out, the more flows in. So don’t wait for Love to come from outside; it’s an inside job. Find it in yourself; rev it up; feel it in your body; share in indiscriminate and random acts of kindness; and feel the rightness and joy of it; notice it’s healing power.
Don’t be ignorant, lazy, stingy or sell yourself short. You were made for this time. Go bravely, my friends!!
With special love for you all, Brooke
