Despite a stomach ache and a headache right now as a result of incredible stress over the last few days between election results and my husband’s serious medical emergency, as a Spiritual Optimist I have to keep believing that we will reach a Tipping Point of consciousness. I have to remember Einstein’s statement that we don’t change anything on the same level which created it.
So focusing on Consciousness may seem all Airy fairy but I do believe it is the treatment plan for our current crisis. Just like my husband’s medical emergency was the crisis caused by underlying Energies and conditions, our current distressing national landscape is very similarly caused by underlying Energies that have burst to the surface. Again, my spiritual optimism and my sacred selfishness dictate that I keep reaching for the thought that feels better….and I will and I am and I do.
And I am human and so I have moments of distress and pain. I would hope not to be judged for that as I am reading on Facebook some pretty harsh Judgment of people being in their process at the moment with grief and pain and fear. We humans are wired for all these emotions for very good reasons, so that we experience the full gamut, the full emotional range. It’s not a bad thing, it’s not unspiritual to feel painful feelings …it’s human. If all we wanted to be was spiritual, we could have stayed where we were before being born into this life. But we didn’t. We chose to come here and experience the full range human emotion and infinite possibilities.
And we are at choice in every single moment. That is where our power lies to keep doing as my friend and teacher Vicki Dello Joio speaks about, we pivot to positive over and over and over again willingly, not forcing anything, organically, with the breath, with the energies available to us.
The personal is political. I learned that back in the seventies when I first was Awakening politically and spiritually, so do not think that your personal choices ain every moment don’t affect the whole. They do. We are advancing toward the Tipping Point of consciousness. That’s all for now.
As always, I hope you SPARKLE!!
