It’s Time to Surrender to What Is…
It is choice to be in captivity. No one, and nothing, can prevent the unravelling of truth from deeply within each person. There is a beautiful service that is happening all over the world- being on lock down. Having people confined within their homes…. what would happen if the individuals would start to look for that ‘something else’. TV isn’t filling the void. Food is simply making you feel crappy…. what is left? The beautiful combination of moving the body (form) with exercise and walking and connecting to the deeper parts within us that are screaming at us- our souls (the formless). This is the time we are finding ourselves in. These are the precious moments to learn more about ourselves, rather than not having time.
These are the times where we get to watch the priorities shift in our lives. What’s left when our job is taken away? What’s left when our relationship crumbles? What’s left when we can’t go on shopping sprees? What’s left when we can’t see our friends and loved ones because of the lock down? What’s left when we can’t make rent/ mortgage repayments? What’s left when we stop? Here’s what’s there, and always was there- we just didn’t have time or space to feel into it before…. but it’s the truth of human existence. It’s the connection to that something deeper within. It’s that ability to have the space to feel your spirit or Shakti or natural flow of energy running within you. AND the connection of that which has always been there- the soul or divinity coursing within you.
It’s the undeniable fact that life- as you knew it is dead. AND YET- you are still here…. is it possible we had it all wrong? Is there more to life than being born, making money, having kids, and dying?? Hell YES! And on that note, everything within that way of finding a made up ‘stability and safe way of living’ needs to be looked at as well. Why? Why get married? Why live the way we always have within our family? Why date the way I did before? Why date at all? Why be so like before this outbreak of corona virus when we can renew, find a new rhythm, go through a new season within our lives? Why not? What’s good enough for nature is good enough for ALL life within it. Humans are NO exception. We just tried to escape it and control natural forces, bringers of change. It’s time for the death of arrogance and playing god, and it’s time for surrendering to what is….
