WOW! It’s a nutty time!
To put it more diplomatically We seek new paradigms for living on our dear planet and living with each other, because we need them ASAP. The old structures are imploding
Much as I wish it wasn’t so, the stumbling is necessary. There is never any other way to learn than by trial and error, but this is particularly true now as we must find new ways of being without a lot of role models. The new paradigms are so different than anything that have gone before that the old problem solving tools are crap not much help. Yes, I’m talking about you, patriarchy.
In our toddlerhood there were hands to catch us as we took those first steps or at least I hope so. And now, as we stumble towards a new way of being, we have never been less alone. Divinity floods the planet with Light and Love, offering support unlike any time ever before. No exaggeration. I meet new Angels every day that are here to help us all. So really, there ARE hands ready to hold us up, and we can feel this rock like support if we
turn off our cell phones go within and listen.
We all hope for kindness as we stumble, both inner kindness and kindness from everyone else, and we find this kindness by making kindness our choice and opening to become the Light and Love being showered upon us. Yeah, I know this sounds trite but really, if we all tried this….
We are going to
mess up make many mistakes as we find new ways to live together harmoniously and new ways to take care of our ailing planet. The Light and Love of Divinity helps immeasurably, but we are still going to stumble. May we find the courage and strength and perspective to be gentle towards ourselves and each other as we stumble.
Flowers show us how to soak up all this incoming Light and Love and be kind. I never met a Flower that wasn’t actively kind. I have never walked by a wildflower in a meadow or visited with a Dandelion in a parking lot and found it rude or honking its horn.
If you read my last blog you know I am
humbled by my unsuccessful efforts trying not to backbite. It occurred to me yesterday as I picked myself up from yet another situation in which I should have said nothing, that I have never heard a Flower EVER say anything negative about another Flower. EVER. That really amazed me. And I have talked to a lot of Flowers. They don’t even interrupt each other. Flowers have to live with each other and often cede territory to each other, yet they never diminish themselves with unkind behavior. No, I don’t think a Flower with an unpleasant fragrance counts.
All this makes me look to the Flowers more than ever. Each day in this uncharted territory, I awake and seek out Flower friends to help show me the way. Each day, they shimmer and shine and tell me and all of you who connect with them, “Yes, you can make this leap. You are doing it.” And when I stumble every day, ever hour every five minutes, they shower me with comforting love and kindness, help me dust myself off post stumble and offer gentle encouragement how to be more kind to myself and others.
I want us all to succeed in the wobbly trip across this bewildering new territory on our toddler feet. It’s a fantastic gig to be here now but really hard. May we all be forgiving as we stumble into each other. May we all see the best in each other. May we all be as kind to each other as a bouquet of our favorite Flowers delivered to our door.
