Small steps are practical and instructive and move us in the direction we need, and want to go in. They are innocent. These steps are tremendously powerful and symbolic – new self-ideas come into play. We become strong enough to take the leap when afforded the opportunity.
The inherent evolutional instinct has been stunted by the powerful 4th World drive to maintain an image. It's time to free ourselves of this compulsive patter.
As long as we have clear visions and live out our integrity, I believe we constantly are essential and protected.
Through positive relationships, aligning with the environment so our needs are met, we advance beyond traumatic memories and learn how to move beyond them. We do not run away from challenges; we tap the collective resolution. We discover our ability to co-create, and be inspired.
We learn how to track uncertainty. We make positive life choices.
My students help me become more responsible because together we learn more. We model actualized confidence and compassion. We are able, expanded, responsible humane beings, each of us – confident in our own goodness and in the strength of our own voice – elevate the quality of life and of the relationships within community.
That we plan our lives, bringing our essential selves into being, we experience value.
Know, we all change. Know, you are changing. In this way we are secure and our basic needs are satisfied. We give ourselves courage and permission to thrive. All Is One.
Feeling supported is the fulfillment of a humane in self exceleration and community harmony. Everyone carries a burning desire to be honored for who they are and what they do, in SpiralDancing Life, we find that multi-dimensional reality within the steps along the wheel. This gives everyone a long-term safety net, and is why this community excels at healing, growth and leadership. Linking our own and our community's desire to encompass more possibilities in life we continually support one another to the best of our resources.
THINGS TO DO
As long as the future holds hope and life beckons me forward, I am going to choose life. Thus Spirit has created me, and others similar.
The reasons for navigating the great beyond are as varied as those of us who do it. Sheer adventure calls to some; the promise of manifestation or peace and freedom impel others. Very often our motive is expectation – a very common vision in evolution.
Here I leave a sense of the excitement rippling through those of us that have gone the distance. I stand in memories worn deep by endless turning life. I have trudged tirelessly, disciplined in my faith, the promise of prophecy fulfilling.
We all have experienced suffering and hardship almost too extreme to endure: the wordless terrors… too invisible to speak; nights so dazzling in pain that we envisioned Spirit. To open to our most emotional injury, we have hacked away at the walls we have constructed for protection.
Many who attempted to fight this great shadow have paid with their lives. The continuance of abuses always predictable, took it's toll.
Out of body experiences evoked the prophecy that called to us. A vivid sensation tells us we can do this. We delve into possibilities to see, through eyes of empowered ones we hope to be, and find the joy to heal the pain. And together we join together in re-turning ourselves to a time where… truth is known.
That we identify our values, ethics and higher thought, to which we are predisposed, and a creative power that uplifts, is generally beyond common apprehension.
To walk a path of higher empowerment, takes diligence in our search for daily support. We are freed in our pursuit – but it takes practice. Our lives with their linear confines tempt us to look back and focus on our short-comings, when all we long for is to live fluidly. We want to enjoy life. Our capacity to persevere is blocked by our consumation by the past. Change can be as simple as aligning with the seasons. We gauge our activities much as our ancestors did. We have the freedom to choose. Anxiety is a fear of loosing control, when in reality we have none. What moments define your happiness? Were you in control during their occurance?
Our transmigrational evolution has one condition: we are to experience – and in my personal opinion - it's time to enjoy life, and we are capable of rewriting our life script.
I want to dwell for a moment on the concept of the Rainbow Warrior, for this "identity" is our first step into ownership of our stories, in order to heal and return vitality takes commitment.
I don't remember who first addressed this concept with me, but I worked with it for a long time. From watching myself step out of the abused wive and victimized Indian, to working with others who carried similar patterns, my sense has been that fearful control is our greatest sabbator – and it's time to let it go – the sad story can be over and our focus can shift to fulfilling dreams.
"I understand," a woman cried, "why I am so scared and don't want to be human." Seeing herself as "not from earth," and finding support in life, kept her from recognizing her own humanity. This is what we learn as inner child work.
It is in this connection that the Star Path invariably unites us and I am asked: "How an we be both." While it may be hard to conceive, we are mixed bloods, mixed concepts, that meld to make us who we are.
It is important to understand that we are all we need to be - from both - both are integral in our perspective philosophy, and our next step is taken from this understanding. We penetrate illusion, when we hear our own voice – when we awaken to the truth of our value. We no longer separate, we heal. We accept our divinity and find safety.
