Today I feel a little lost on the crooked path to enlightenment because I have traded in consistency for complacency, and now I have to struggle to find my way back. It’s a lot easier to just keep walking straight ahead than it is to zip on and off the path for a little distraction here and there. But do I listen to myself? Noooo.
I remind myself of Jazzy, an adorable little ADD dog with the attention span of a gnat. Putting her on a leash and taking her for a walk is like trying to harness a hummingbird and engage in a contest to see who is in charge. That’s me. The Gnat. I need to put myself on a leash, strap myself into my meditation chair, and sit-stay until I reestablish my connection with my Divine Source.
Sometimes I meditate and write, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes it’s easy sometimes it’s not. Sometimes I just have to give up and walk away for a while. I never quite know what to expect until I put the harness on and sit myself down.
Today for instance and yesterday and the day before, I started blogs that zipped around the page with no apparent purpose or intended destination. What am I writing about? Meditation? Forgiveness? My current frustration over my inability to finish a blog? Who knows? I seem stuck in a fog of confusion and can’t find my way out into the light. Is it just me? No, I don’t think so.
I have friends who are on hyper alert and can’t sleep, who wallow around in brain fog, or experience strange, baffling, bodily symptoms that can be neither diagnosed nor explained. Strange things are going on in the Universe. Our bodies are shifting and changing; we are being infused with a powerful new energy that is upgrading our DNA and preparing us for what will be coming one day soon.
I had hoped that this blog would be all about light–yours mine, ours, and the Great Light that will soon blaze forth through the clouds of our awareness and burn away the fog of confusion that blinds us to the Truth of who we are. Apparently today, that hope is just a blip on my radar screen awaiting expression on another day. Perhaps it will have to wait until the universe has finished rearranging all of my molecules in preparation for the appearance of the great blaze of Light.
As I anxiously await this momentous happening, I rediscover the importance of scrapping complacency and embracing the consistency of the practice of meditation, the Divine Connection to my Source will return along with the ease of writing a blog. Why do I keep forgetting to remember that?
So here’s the thing: I have learned that once I commit to a decision to scrap complacency and embrace the consistency of meditation, my Divine Connection to Source will return along with the ease of writing a blog. Why do I keep forgetting to remember that?
Also good to remember is that each and every one of us is on the path of a spiritual journey whether we recognize it or not. We are all here on planet earth in a classroom with a curriculum specially tailored to fit our own personal needs. The fact that you are here and have read this far tells me that you are walking well upon your own path, and that you have taken one step closer to finding the truth within yourself.
I guess that a blog about the coming great Light will have to wait for another day. Meanwhile, as I wait for the Light to blaze forth and shine upon us all, I will work on keeping the flame of my own inner light alive and well, and trust that peace, harmony, love, and understanding will take root, sprout, and bless this beloved nation and world of ours. It’s the least I can do while I wait. But the really good news is— we won’t be waiting long . . .
