Om Blessed Be
In 2021, in light of February's focus, which is to contemplate "the journey," and to question whether or not our journey needs to be reconsidered, or rekindled, I have decided to take on a task that has haunted me for the past 17 years... and that task is technical!
But, before I share my progress with you, I want to inspire you to consider thinking about something that you have always wanted to accomplish, or at least start, and say, maybe it's time you go for it!
February, which is also the second house, or our toddler years, and the house that happens to reflect our childhood battles and upbringing, can be quite limiting, and frustrating. There is a reality, that we only know what we know, or what we learned, until we choose to learn how to get up, just like a toddler when they try to walk and fall down, and try again! And eventually... we all stopped falling down, but maybe we also stopped trying!
But life has a way to get in the way doesn't...
I have often wondered why we seek the mysteries... and maybe the mystery has it's own wonders of why we should seek. Is there a point that must exist for either to happen? Possibly...
It is written on the very first page of The Kybalion..."The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of understanding."
I, and many, would agree that seeking the truth is a sacred journey that only the few are ready for... so alchemist's, I hope you are ready for the truth!
To access the secrets we must all be dared to know, be willing to learn, and always be humble in our ways. When you're ready... you will understand.
For now... let's take each step reverently, with respect for the teachings and their rituals, in tuned to the universal ways, opening our hearts as much as possible, creatively expanding ourselves, sacredly finding balance, and honoring this life.
Amen. Aho. Namaste. Om Blessed Be.
Before the year ends, take a moment to say goodbye. Goodbye to the year, that threw many of us through a loop, but also provided us with a new view of the world. Maybe you need to say goodbye to the way things use to be so that you can start anew. I'd like to say goodbye to my shortcomings, how about you?
Goodbye separation! Hello reconnection! Goodbye angst! Hello goodwill! Goodbye lies! Hello truth! Goodbye pain! Hello freedom! Goodbye inertia! Hello Movement!
Goodbye "I'm wasting time!" Goodbye "I can't do this!" Goodbye "My old way of life!" GOODBYE ALL THAT DOES NOT SERVE ME... GOODBYE!
Speak out loud, or in prayer. Write it down, and maybe share it, or burn it. Cry, or let yourself feel the relief and laugh when you're done! What ever you do... give yourself permission to let go! It's that time of year, and know that every December offers us the gift of releasing a year's worth of "whatever," and this year has given us quite a bit, even in the...
