the knowing, the longing and the misplaced feelings
that all belong to the soul who remembers... (dl)
Why can’t we touch the universal connection?
Who is it that gets to caress the memory of the womb, walk with our ancestors, or remember what it is like in heaven as a “Star child”? Who is it can remember their childhood at all? The people who talk about these experiences seem to be so wise and special, yet so far away and I found, there was an underlying theme that played out over and over in each one of their stories; and it is called: Inner trust.
It doesn’t happen as thunder crashing all around, or some brilliant angelic enlightenment. NO - It is subtle, sometimes not so gentle, and is laced with strings from the spider’s web – sticky, delicate, sincere and ordinary.
But we have to get out of our preconceived and stale thinking to grasp what others seem to know and open our heart and mind so we can see and remember.
It comes in waves of softness after being hardened for so very long. It stands tall and deep in our minds eye and it is so tangible that we would truly have to be dead not to notice - and so it is. We sleep walk for so much of time, missing the presence, the present, and the beat of our heart in mistrust.
Some are better than others interpreting the signs. (Hang out with those people; they will blow your mind.) They seem to be unscathed by the nastiness and the brutality of the world we live in, they will paint it a different color and it shows in their glow.
What they discovered is surrender – sweet, sweet surrender. And when we stop second guessing the “gut feelings” and embrace them, we received little glimpses of what our soul recalls. The portal is small and concentrated. It is a fleeting understanding that kisses our intuition and gives us permission to rely on that moment of grace; solid and ethereal at the same time – dreamy, substantial and ever so brief.
When you want it is there
We can have it all, but “want’ is a tricky thing. We have to honor it in a sacred place. The place that comes from betterment, love and purpose (and not necessarily in that order.) We have to want “want” in way that is useful not just for us, but that benefits the totality of us all.
This is what all the Masters tell us again and again in so many languages, religions and sects. We have to take back our innocence with a confident heart forget about the mold society tries to instill on us. We must be comfortable with the voice with-in and trust it; it is the guide, the inner spirit, and the voice that will open the flood gates to things we are to know, remember and bring forward to our daily life.
You see, there isn’t a formula or a secret – it is just the willingness to accept that quite possibly you already know (more than anyone) what is good for you - and that my friends comes in deep from the soul. Relax into it. Feel those déjà vu moments and know they are more than a passing whim.
It’s the stardust, the clarity of the water and the color of our blood. It’s a dance with distant past and a future in the making. It’s floating in your mothers womb and the love connected to a simple cosmic WTF that happens to us all. We just take it for granted and there in lies the veil…. Uncover yourself. Trust.
But there are some things we are not meant to know at certain times of our life.
(Another little tid-bit of knowing) – It comes when we are ready, and not one minute before, so don’t push it.
But we (you and I) are just as wise and special as the ones we admire – the only difference is; they may have arrived a little earlier and opened the door to their scared place before we did. And there will be others behind us - that is just the way things are, period. One thing I can tell you for certain is the less attention we give to what we think we “should” know… the easier it is to validate what our soul remembers… (dl)
