The summer of 2012 has been a grievous one for me; I suspect it has been that way for others as well. We are witnessing depression on a planetary scale. People are in need of money and jobs, of social cooperation and a feeling of hope. What are we to do?
To speak personally, there is nothing I can do but witness all of the above. I am not a doer, nor is anyone else. In fact, doing is when I notice how little being I have. Doing reduces my being rather than enhance it.
I feel a great sense of restlessness and at the same time, have been advised to “wait.” Waiting is always helpful when done from a place of awareness. Waiting is an energetic gift coded by higher energies hidden within us. “They that wait on God shall renew their strength…”
How can waiting be a gift? It enlarges our energy field, for one thing. It allows new energies to come in to replace the stale air of self-centered thoughts about how things “ought to be.” In fact, we have no idea how things ought to be. The great mystery of life does not operate under the law of the human ego.
I am learning to let go, let go, let go. Let go of my books, my recordings, my self-created purposes. Beyond me there is an “I” that runs the show. My job is to sit back in the lounge car of the Self and watch it unfold. This is the difficult job of awakening to what is, rather than what I want it to be.
See you down the road.
