This week is about allowing the path to reveal itself rather than sweating over a map. About receiving and allowing instead of forcing and blocking. We have prayed, cried, thought, re-thought, decided, re-decided, searched, found, abandoned, repeat -- but no matter how far we get in our heads about a matter, in our heads we will stay. We can’t get to “out there,” from “in here.” No matter how it sounds in our minds, ultimately its all conjecture. We are mad men clawing equations on a chalkboard. This week, spirit urges us to put the problem down and relax. This is the time for being led, for trusting that our higher powers, higher selves, spiritual authorities, angels, ancestors and spirit guides know better than we do how to get us what we want. This week we have to stop figuring out how to make something “work,” with our rational mind, as a consolation prize for the dreams we convinced ourselves were too big to come true. We need to stfu, turn off our monkey minds, and dream big ANYWAY, and be patient enough to discover how the universe will surprise and delight us, as it is always ready to do.
We just need to get in our hearts and only love. Looooove. Love ourselves, love our loved ones, love our friends, love our enemies, love our good guys, love our bad guys, love our healthy bodies, love our sick bodies, love our choices, love our confusion, love our disappointment, love what no longer serves us (because once it really, really did), love our wishes, love our complaints, and even love the fact that we don’t know how to do all that damn loving. Ha! Count it ALL joy. Because every single ingredient of our lives right now is necessary for the big stew that we will be served. That stew is everything we want and deserve, and even though something smells funny in the kitchen, it’s only because the stew ain’t ready yet. So this week we have to tell ourselves what we would tell our children who burst in starving before the food is finished, noses scrunched at the pot, wanting something -- anything -- not now, but right now!
GO PLAY. Or set the table. Or clean your room.
We must wait with a joyful spirit and trust that our creator knows our hearts and knows how to deliver us precisely to where we want to be. Do we think we know better? Did we make ourselves? Did we cause our own souls to stir in our mothers’ wombs? This is the time to be filled with gratitude at how its all coming together in miraculous ways. This is the time to let our FAITH be our strength, not our WILL. Because ultimately what we want has to be for the good of ALL, and right now we’re only looking at how to make it good for ourselves. If there are still “villains” in our lives who need to be “punished” while we are “rewarded,” we aren’t there yet. Perspective is needed. The universe knows how to balance the scales, not us. Therefore we must surrender. Trust. Love. Play. Set the table. Clean your room.
