This year of 2017 feels like a powerful opportunity for humanity to open up to a new level of remembering.
Remembering - "Having or being able to bring to one's mind an awareness of someone or something that one has seen, known, or experienced in the past..."
In our human, limited understanding of Life, we believe that Time is linear. That Time stretches out in front of us and when one thing is done, the next thing shows up to be completed, and then the next and the next. and so we are constantly moving forward towards deadlines and goals.
What I know to be true is that Time, Love, Memories are all interwoven into a circular shape. A web. A weaving. And that sometimes when we begin to pull at the thread of one memory or one situation, then just like a ball of thread, it begins to unravel in all different areas of our Life. And our limited minds start to judge what we are doing, what we are discovering, or what we feel as the ball of thread starts to unravel.
What I also know to be true is that the thread that we pull is ALWAYS Love.
It might appear to be judgment, disappointment, expectation, anger, fear, pain, but underneath every one of those emotions or memories is Love. Our Souls choose these human journeys to come and expand our understanding of Consciousness. And Consciousness is Love.
So in this year of remembering at a global level who we are as a collective human race and also who we are individually, pulling on those threads can start to shake up everything in and around us. And so I offer you this certainty, this steadiness to keep allowing yourself to come back to Love, in whatever way that looks to you.
When I was growing up, there was this comic strip of cute, happy, bubbly people titled "Love Is..." with various examples of what Love can look like. I believe this was Consciousness trying to teach us different understandings and definitions of Love.
Today I offer you some of my favorite physical representations of Love, something you can put your hands and your eyes upon to feel the reality of it - which then allows the spiritual to be felt and understood with more certainty.
Love Is.. Cuddling up on a couch under a blanket with someone you trust.
Love Is... When your puppy jumps up to greet you and cannot lick your face fast enough to show how much he missed you.
Love Is... That text or email that simply says "I see you and I am here."
Love Is... That flutter of delight in your heart when you stand in nature and close your eyes and open your other senses and feel... peace.
Love Is... That bone-deep satisfaction after an amazing workout that pushed you past the limits you thought you were capable of meeting.
Love Is... That last bite of your absolute favorite dessert at the end of a meal with someone you enjoyed the conversation with immensely.
Love Is... Hearing the lyrics of a song and knowing you are being supported by Source energy in that very moment.
These are some of my favorite definitions of Love in the physical form. When we pull on those threads and things feel a little wobbly, allowing ourselves to remember moments when we have experienced that Love and then consciously start to create more of those moments - we bring ourselves back into balance again.
This weekend, perhaps allow yourself time to remember more of who you are deep inside, at the core of you, where Love always sits and expands.
If you are feeling the pull for community, share your reflections and allow in validations of how you are Love within the Soul Shine Tribe. And join us on Sunday for the Viben community as we pause in meditation to feel Source Love moving in and through our physical experience of Life.
As I was typing this, I could hear the lyrics to a song, so I share Source energy with you in this moment through the voice of Ford Atlantic in "Let Your Heart Hold Fast."
"To believe I walk alone
Is a lie that I've been told
So let your heart hold fast
For this soon shall pass
Like the high tide takes the sand"
So much love...
"Divine Teacher, Beloved Friend, I bow to you Again and Again
Lotus sitting on the water, beyond all time and space, this is your way, this is your grace." ~ Ong Namo
