Up Close and Personal
Now that Mars has made its closest visit to us in perhaps 60,000 years
the rains come telling us clearly war is not the answer to anything!
Opening to a new and larger vision of the Love that we truly are is
the answer. What a great peace that vision brings. What a great joyous
reality that vision brings. Now to live that reality each moment!
As the wheel of the year continues to turn we move toward the contemplative
time of the year where we take time to evaluate our harvests of the
year. I attended a workshop last weekend on Radical Forgiveness. I attended
this workshop because I know I am at a literal turning point in many
ways and I wanted to open to a new and larger reality so I could prepare
myself for the many opportunities that are always available if I will
just leave room for them to come into my life. In the Radical Forgiveness
framework the idea is that every event that happens in our lives is
for our soul growth; things happen "for us", not "to
us". We are given the opportunity to move beyond shame, blame and
guilt to an openheartedness and trust that leaves room for peace and
the true Love that is the center of our Being. This view takes me, and
all of us, beyond the duality of condemnation to a view of wholeness
where we can embrace the reality that everything is working together
for our good. To say the very least this view is quite a leap of faith
if I want to maintain a vengeance mentality and not move to a larger
view of myself and my world. The choice is mine when I am considering
how fast do I want my spiritual growth to be. I can make my road difficult
or I can make my road peaceful. Is any of this easy? Yes and no! The
change is as close as this present moment if I will just make the effort
and leave the room for magnanimity. It is as far away as never if I
will not make the room or the effort.
As I move toward this contemplative time of year these are the possibilities
I will be gently holding as I contemplate what possibilities I will
be planting in the dark time of the year as the wheel of the year moves
toward Spring. I wish you blessings of peace and openheartedness in
this revisioning time of year.
