It may be good strange; it may be bad strange, but unprecedented shifts and changes and unexpected twists and turns seem almost constant now. The world stage sprouts dramas like there's no tomorrow.
My own life has been almost placid, yet I continue to feel rapid movement, like I am turning a very big corner and, until I get around onto some kind of straightaway again, I have little ability to focus on much or be productive.
Which may explain my unusual absence and the long time between posts here lately. I do feel, though, that this "corner turning" is a general condition right now, for all of us collectively. (There is some astrology that supports this contention but I am not skilled enough in that art to begin that conversation so I will refrain.)
What's interesting to me in all this odd "hurry up and wait" feeling, this vast corner turning feeling, is how this deeper current seems, ever so slowly, to be catching us all up in its flow. Sure, in daily life, the problems and quiet spaces, challenges and releases, all usually have the same contents, but there is this added je ne sais quoi about it all, and an ever-increasing pressure -- and more and more frequently the problems we face don't let up until we come up with a different response than what used to work. Because, it doesn't work anymore, whatever it was.
Which, while we are in the thick of things, can feel horrible and frustrating, and does, quite often.
But I invite you to step back from it a few steps and take in this larger perspective with me for a moment. What it looks like to me is something pretty wonderful beginning to show up.
What it looks like is, we aren't getting away with our trips any longer, and we are being called into creative action. Our Inner Divine Creator Spirit is showing up, shoving away the crap and crud, and saying, "Here, let Me show You something."
The daily mind of us, we usually don't get it at first and may not get it for a long time. We may bash our heads against the wall for a while.
But at some point, if we keep showing up and keep asking questions, we start to get a clue. We start to let that Creative Flow find a way, and then, amazing things can happen.
They may not. What may happen may simply be relief, or simply a shift, or even what looks like failure.
But from where I stand, the whole thing is rather glorious.
Oh yes, we are beseiged. We are still on a planet riddled with control systems gone insane. We still have battles to wage and territory to regain. We still have to claim our Sovereign Souls.
But the difference is, now, I think we can do it. I think it's beginning to show. I think the puzzle's missing pieces are beginning to arrive.
Don't forget to breathe.
