2012: Desperation or Inspiration?
Much in our world is changing – and fast! Gaia’s activity – evidenced by earthquakes and tsunamis, wildfires, flooding, punishing rains, mudslides, etc. – is occurring with an intensity and at a rate difficult to ignore. In the face of such challenges, how can we see potential and possibility when so many seem to see only destruction and gloom? It is in these moments that we are called to discover the ‘more’ that each of us carries and can connect with in a single breath. Take time for that breath and allow yourself to consider: what moves in you when you consider the times to come?

Sheila Winter Wallace says
Yes, I, too, am thankful and appreciative of the time in which I find mySelf alive and living. In my world, I feel like I AM the chosen ONE… and the singular truth, for me, is that I AM doing the choosing; I AM choosing me. What kind of world do I want to live in… for me? What does that mean to Gaia, as me, to shape the world that I choose to live in?
I must define my own evolution. So as Gaia breathes and rumbles- and her elements combine and unite in a myriad of computations to reshape her world – I, too, choose to consider the changes in my own physiology and state as Gaia’s mirrors – the things that I define as hurting and the things that I define as easy – as the invitation to loosen my grasp of the ‘grid’ as I have known it… and, also, not known it.
The words in your audio, that I experience as so compelling for me, are ‘off the grid’ without denying/sacrificing ‘connection’ and ‘sacred in a secular world’.
‘Off the grid’, for me, in physical reality means rigging (as in respect, integrity and generosity of spirit) my choice of mindful consumption of Gaia’s elements. Metaphorically, it means, waking up to those finer distinctions in me, as elemental force, that are the unique filaments of my world – discernible, distinguishable and unique in a strengthening tapestry of threads, weaving themSelves together in a holographic universe. This does not mean assimilation to some prevalence of collective norms – the cloak, the surface structure, that Gaia, in rig of her own life, is now casting off – in fact, has always been… only, now, her perceived complacency has worn thin in suffering victimhood by our hand… her voice is now rising victorious in elemental and enlightening power; it, instead means waking up and uncovering the deeper truth of whom I AM and whom We ARE and whom Gaia IS.
That awakening is now taking us ‘off the grid’ while rigging an ever deepening connection to Self, Other and Gaia. Awakening, we recognize that we can BE in the world, no longer of it. As I have heard you say, time and again, Louise, we are intersecting points of light in a tapestry of unique lights. Separate, yet connected. The sacred increasingly – and with momentum, now – defined, discerned and recognized as the secular, no longer it’s opposite.
Our waking up lives and breathes in Gaia’s deepest rumblings. When we deny what we feel, hear and see – what we know, deep inside, where we live – we deny ourSelves our right of birth to patriate ourSelves, in every breath, to Self as Sacred.
We have been mindlessly engaged in that denial for aeons. Gaia will continue to maximize her victorious voice, until those of us who choose to awake to our own Sacred voice are, indeed, awake. As my own point of light, I get to choose, for me, the world that I want to create. That is THE connection that I have to other points of light, known and unknown, in my firmament.
Knowing what I want is key. I am glad to be alive at this time.
Yes, this is a really great time for me to be alive. Your audio blog is my reminder to trust my experience of my mirrors. I no longer choose victim; I choose victorious voice.
