There are times when I feel that I must allow all that I wish, dream and think that I “know” to be taken away as if lifted by a shift in a gathering wind. The holdings of my heart and mind are swept like dozens of meadow flowers and scattered throughout the clouds leaving colorful sprinkling of colors as the only a blur in the folds of Gods motioned clouds. All were once tightly held, even lightly held, but cherished and dear.
I have noticed that every once in a while whether we do it voluntarily or not, we are motioned into the experience a “life cleanse” and it may take us by surprise or shake us to the core. We can recognize these winds as a sign of new times asking that we lay down yesterday’s terms, conditions and holdings. We can question if we are being asked to peel away the layers of beliefs and holdings which have become heavy garments that we wear or, have begun to “wear us” instead.
Life’s nature compels renewal. Our own higher nature, by decree of the laws of Love, The Divine and Purification, seizes the reigns and longs to shed what we no longer need, even if we do not acknowledge it, feel it or believe it. The key is to view renewal as a blessing such as the passing of winter to spring.
Renewal and the “life shedding” that often follows can bring forth doubts and fear. Our ego is eager to keep all things Status Quo. It may have established some valued holdings” in the former status. These, in the form of beliefs, judgements and it’s own treasured “safety devices” would rather not be trifled with. The former creates a comfortable home base. That is Its job, to make you feel safe and loved. Sadly, the ego, by this definition, is not the Soul, or the Heart or Source of Pure Love. Some traditions call it the Ego-Mind.
The Pure Source of Love and it’s Recall is Sacred energy that is motioned, prompted by Love, at pivotal times of change in one’s live. We need not be afraid of it or of the change that it compels. It is filled with wondrous possibilities that we cannot even fathom. It is, in pure form, our original energy, inborn and true to the Imprint of God, Source of All. It longs to be free once again that it may reform according to the Soul’s design and the decree of the Divine.
If I ever feel the winds of Spirit near, my heart is open. My heart, mind are yours. Shower my life with the droplets of your will and grace. You are my home. You are my space. You already know the Place!
