Does the Question or the Answer Ignite Your Passion?
Many of us grew up feeling we needed to have “the answers” influenced by our educational system in particular. I clearly remember ducking my head and hoping I wouldn’t be called on when I hadn’t done my homework! The Wise Ones among us have always known that asking and living with good questions can ignite us to become more of who we truly are.
I was reminded of this on New Year’s Eve, and woke up early on January 1st to see what question would emerge to set the tone for the year ahead. I spontaneously asked myself, “What I would be like; what might I do, if I were even freer from the restrictive patterns of my personality?” I’ve asked myself that before and this time the question evoked a response from me that was not just mental. It was physical, emotional and energetic. Immediately, I felt the sense of vibrant aliveness and joy that I feel when filled with the Creative Energy that comes, when I allow my voice to totally let loose or when my writing flows and I forget time altogether. I know you have felt this too. What is it that ignites your passion for life? If you don’t yet know, now is the time to find out.
This New Year calls all of us to come out of hiding, to Be and to Share our Essential Selves. We’re long past the need for proving our worth or justifying our existence. Issues of self-esteem are now past tense. Who we each are is essential; no one is more or less important to the whole. What we see in form is a fraction of the truth of creation. Our state of being, our energetic contribution and our inspired actions are an integral part of all the change upon us and happening through us.
For many years the Ancestors, who guide and infuse my work, have used the words, “Ee Yah Shay,” with emphasis, to vibrationally remind me of my true nature. It is used as both an acknowledgment (like “Namaste’ “) and a wake up call, in which case it means “BE the Light That You Are!” These times call for no less than that. My understanding is that we will be “surprised and amazed by all that unfolds.”
For the last thirty years, they have been teaching me to live in the Mystery so that when the time came I could assist others to do the same. Apparently I am a slow learner, although with no clear idea of the curriculum not to mention invisible teachers, it was understandably challenging, although never boring!
Yesterday when my intellect made yet another attempt to focus me back into what it considers “reality” this poem suddenly popped out onto my page. I’m not suggesting that you should stop balancing your check book (or ignore any other current situation), only that you and I both do it from a state of consciousness that is attuned to reality rather than illusion.
In my next post I’m going to share a practical example of how the heart’s wisdom can more effectively handle life challenges. Here’s the poem:
Enough brooding over bank balances
This day holds mysteries that call you to follow
The siren song of your heart
There are no rocks to dash your dreams to bits
That’s the illusion that
Those who feared to follow sold you
Take the leap
Let the magic carpet of your heart carry you
There really is no-thing left to do
But LET GO
