Holy Week has long been important to me. While a non-Christian per-se, the re-enactments of betrayal on Palm Sunday always resonated because of my own sense of family betrayal, I suppose. So this period along with Easter, stirs my heart. Wow, this Lent was a doozie!
A Pisces with Scorpio rising, I get to be super sensitive and super intense. It’s just a blast sometimes (not). I don’t have to do anything to feel lots- including channeling the world around me at times! I’ve had to learn shielding, and lots of it.
These weeks of isolation at home are reminding me of what it feels like to breathe again. Even though challenging with the news, I am resting more and having ample opportunities to witness those around me and myself. Collectively our cortisol levels are decreasing, creating sense of further relaxation. There’s less sense of urgency. Enjoy the blessing in letting efficiency go even as possible pandemonium looms!
We’ve been learning what we really need.
As humans we absolutely require air, consumption, elimination, and love – in whatever form it comes. No one gets all of them automatically. In an ideal world, our family, society and structure “should” meet them, to support and preserve the dignity of life as it supports our individual ability to thrive! No one can be faulted for meeting those needs. The “how” is where we focus our moral compass.
With this web of resilience- family society and structure, we can thrive to share our blessings. All beings have blessings. Humans may not even be productive in the usual sense to our western minds, but serve as teachers in other ways to expand our hearts and consciousness anew.
All beings give and receive blessings in their works and life- even those from whom we learn our most difficult truths. There are no true accidents but an intersection of probabilities, based on the choices we make from the solution of possibilities. Rational, learned, problem solving helps us reproduce results. “Chance” sets the stage. Maybe when we rush, we cut the light a little. Eventually we collide with another like mind.
There will be relationships experienced as 2nds, tri-tones, and diminished 7ths, that need special handling. Whether we be slow and soft, letting our own frequencies gently beat together, or structured, there is always potential for harmony, as Bach and Bartok show us. Holy books and yoga urge us to find ease in all situations. It really is possible!
We are all mirrors of the divine, just as we are all mirrors of our attachments.
The amount of incoherence we actively generate, also called karma or attachment (think caramel), has quantum effects too. Engaging with our caramel feels reassuring and stays with us. In the quantum world this caramel is dark matter. It has an infinite attraction for itself as an entity. As our intentions direct dark matter, we know what to expect when we continue our attachments to karma, even though we eventually will have to brush our teeth. Karma keeps us attached to living in physical reality.
Whatever we give our attention too, attraction or revulsion, becomes stronger. Just the energy of thought alone deepens ruts and connections, for better or worse, in your subconscious too. I do it too, still.
Just for this week, send special blessings and thanks for getting your needs met again. You are still here alive! Just for the week, bless all you pet’s food, thanking it for nourishing them. You might have to bless it back to it’s seed form to fully reconnect given all the GMO residue in it’s DNA.
Give a special prayer for those beings who are transitioning right now as you read this. That they find ease in the necessary surrender as their bodies return to earth and souls to the light. While our soul’s may be the tiniest shard or broadest rainbow, all of us share in the spirit of love at the end of our lives.
Know that in spirit there is no flesh, no touch, no odor, no color, no sound, no structure or, as my friend Zoe says, no “geometries”. We are pure vibratory beings with packets of dark matter and directed by invisible energy.
Just for this week, try a daily practice of sending blessings to all beings in every direction (N, S, E, W, up, down, and inside you) and receiving blessings from all beings. Bless all those beings, alive or inanimate, in your home that you touch in any way. As we bless others, we bless ourselves and promote the higher frequency of vitality and healing, even inanimate objects that we ‘love’.
Especially send a blessing to someone you don’t care for. One never knows the shoes they’ve walked in or decisions they had to make to get their basic needs met.
Love will win in the end.
