Right now am here expressing myself in a space of comfort because I feel safe being a part of this community and sharing my heart at this time, on several topics that have impacted my heart, mind and spirit over the weekend and today.
On the one hand, am processing all the emotions and thoughts activated in surviving a tremendous rain storm ---- which has left thousands, including a dozen or so on my own street, all around our state of TN, reeling from a sense of massive loss, launching all kinds of rockets of desires for healing and recovery.
In the midst of this - an innocent inquiry into the whereabouts of someone I care for - was taken totally out of context, leaving my heart and mind filled with more questions than answered, as I was accused and judged of something that is currently being shrouded in mystery, without the opportunity to sort it out.
The dance to all of this is giving myself permission to acknowledge and accept "all" my feelings and thoughts about these two circumstances while they are passing through my energy fields and physical body - without attachment to create any egoic stories around them.
The phrase, this too shall pass comes to mind and yes in a lot of ways, I get that, yes, this too will pass, yet in moments over the last several days, in the midst of experiencing these emotions and thoughts pouring forth - there has been moments that are totally sucky and isolating - challenging my mind to go higher, to connect to my heart beyond the bumps and bruises, beyond the surprises, beyond the egoic stance of wanting to survive no matter what.
I am inspired that in the middle of disasters, how are all kinds of earth angels, from all corners, choose to stop, drop and quickly gather together, putting systems in place that will help hundreds of lives hit broadside by mother nature, especially since there exists in the air a surreal aspect to all of this.
Cosmically feels like old dross, old ideas, old beliefs, being purged from the gold - and the heat of that purging is sifting off all kinds of stuff no longer necessary or serving our soul's evolution.
Yet - what does that matter to someone who's reeling with sudden homelessness, vehicle or job loss? or to someone who watched a friend or loved one get swallowed by fast moving torrential rains in an attempt to get to dry land?
What reality would feel most inspiring? to have a stranger heart-fully reach forth and help without condition or obligation when the world appears to have pulled the rug out from underneath you.
That's the strength that pours forth from the human spirit - when we do for the least of them, we do for us as well (Divine Love in action)
Blessings of appreciation to all hearts and minds who love their neighbor as themselves, for the highest good of all that is.
You are the gold that shines forth through the cosmic dross being sifted through!
