Many of us have hit dark spots in recent months. We have doubted, we
questioned, we have grieved, and we have felt hopeless.
When a shattering in our life occurs, it affords us the opportunity to dive
deeply into our own heart and soul. It allows us to divest ourselves of our
masks, our preconceptions, our made up stuff about our lives as a whole.
A shattering in its very essence strips away everything familiar and
customary. The experience can feel like dying because it truly is the death
of an outworn part of us. In the process, we are swept along, caught in
the rip tide and we can do nothing but surrender.
Came across a picture of a door in an old wall on FB today. The imagery is
very powerful for me and evokes The Secret Garden, one of my most
favorites books and musicals. The image of the door and a key has a huge
place of honor in my awakening, so much so that I wore a gold key for
years before it was fashionable. I eventually gave the key to my daughter
who performed in a lead role in the ballet of The Secret Garden, based on
the Broadway show. A few years later, she tragically lost it, along with the
rest of her jewelry, in a robbery.
Tonight I closed my eyes to center myself for writing and inspiration and I
saw in my mind’s eye a hand mixer, working away at something in a bowl.
Expecting something a little more exciting, I had to laugh at my own
hubris. And yet, a hand mixer is certainly what my life has been like these
last two weeks. I have been flung into a bowl, with a bunch of
miscellaneous ingredients and the mixer has gone to work.
I woke up this morning with a very deep awareness of community,
particularly of the company of those of us who have offered up our light
with a dedicated commitment to the Wholing of the world. I have been a
student of Stephanie’s for many years now but my experience has largely
been a personal one that I have shared with her. And yet so many of us
have chosen a life founded on light and personal Wholing and mastery. I
am finding that my perspective has changed and I am deeply aware of her
other students and participants, and so many others globally, in a way I
wasn’t able to before.
