Survive

I am here to say, I do know how we survive this.

It is not I the individual that seeks enlightenment. It is we the collective that calls us to our real identity.

We are united as people through the journey that we share no matter the distance between. 

You Am I and I AM you and the more we deny this, the more isolation seeks us.

I AM here, as One.

You know me, We are the same. Together we survive. Together we are Oneness.

Journey to Fire Valley in Nevada

You are called to Light through meditation, prayer and reflection. Draw from ancestral traditions, seek comfort in the stillness. Be guided by an inner ache that springs forth wisdom, creativity, and the still voice within. Drawn upon the Light to overcome fear, adversity, and stagnation.

It is in the Light that you are called to speak, to write, to teach and to heal.

Do your best to be open, to be active, to reflect, and to listen. Find comfort in the stillness, the void, the realms of Pure Potentiality. In the absence of “matter” and chaos we can hear the voice of God. Challenge yourself to grow beyond adversities and emerge anew ascending to the call.

Believe that it is in surrendering to the Light that the true mystery unfolds.

The healing qualities of Light, the warmth, the comfort, the insight, the vastness of human consciousness is revealed. Seek the Self as if you are part of a whole. Act in unity and solidarity. Be the Word.

Be the Light expressed through Stillness.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be you and you will find the reflection of Me, many stars united.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be us and you will find the reflection of All, many solar systems.

Unveil the mystery of what it means to be All and you will find the reflection of Oneness, many universes.

Unveil the mystery and reflect the qualities of Oneness: gratitude, kindness, compassion, integrity, patience, loyalty and solidarity.

I inspire you, the universe is knocking on our door. Are we listening? Can we be in the void, the vastness, the pure potentiality. Can we collectively let go, surrender and soar? Can we keep reaching, keep stretching, out of the comfort zone and experience the ache, the longing from discontent, powerlessness, a reminder of our humanity?

Collectively, we stand at the threshold of our transcendence, the caller is knocking, the door is opening and together we are called to walk through and honor the space in which we exist.  It is our birthright, our breath, our connectivity to All.

For in the vastness of Oneness you are, I Am.

The Intellectual Self asks what next?

The Emotional Self struggles to not implode.

The Spiritual Self knowingly is calm.

Be Calm

The stripping away of limitations to unveil One’s true Self, the Divine Spark of Spirit,

Soul of All existence is at play..

Connect through the Spiritual Body and bring balance to all bodies.

This is a time of great transformation.

HOPE

Having Opportunities Present Endlessly

In the vastness of experience, called life we are all guided by a unique gift, Hope. It is hope that manifests out of the abundance of Oneness.

For it is not as if what is, is. What is, is opportunity, potentiality.

Hope is the key to unlock the Mystery of suffering, the ladder ascending out of chaos, the impetus for clarity in all situations and the portal to an expanded Self.

Receive the gift and know that All has purpose, endless opportunities presenting.

Hootoos, Angel Wings

Just for today, let go of the concrete, the must do’s and the must haves.

Release expectations of self and others, make no judgements and keep anger at bay,

Be not complacent, idol, nor disinterested, restless, annoyed or argumentative,

Let go of the need to know, to control and to own; the imprints of greed.

Then take a walk and here the calling of what desires to be again.

I inspire you, to be fully present to the voice within, to quiet the chatter, to seek stillness in nature and to cultivate your relationship with commitment.

It is Here. It is Now.

Oneness is revealed -a dual shift in perspective—exterior to interior, materialistic to simplistic, reactive to reflective, disconnected to interconnected, exclusive to inclusive, fundamentalist to symbolic, dogma to praxis and Earth as resources to Earth as the manifestation of the Divine.

Awaken to the beauty and the connectivity to All

Our Ascension.

Ann Oswald Laird

As the isolation calls us to be, a knowingness pervades the consciousness of a time when we were called to prepare over may lifetimes to embrace stillness. Not just stillness of the Self but stillness of a collective consciousness.

It is the breaking down of all societal structures to move more into a unified consciousness.

One planet. One People

Clearing the path so that All can be a unification of One Soul, Oneness, a prophetic monumental Age of Awakening.

The Earth is healing and with her authority we are healing.

“The ultimate question for a responsible man to ask is not how he is to extricate himself heroically from the affair, but how the coming generation shall continue to live,” Bonhoeffer

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor and theologian, was executed in 1945 in a Nazi concentration camp, owing to his compassion and solidarity for the Jewish people and prisoners of war.  Bonhoeffer might suggest, to come to know God is through the experiences of life that lead us out of self gratification and toward gratification of humanity as a whole. One could then say, that for some, the spiritual journey has proven to transform not only the individual but also more profoundly their community and future generations. If one were to look for an example of an individual life that exemplifies a profound spiritual journey one might acknowledge Bonhoeffer.

Like Bonhoeffer, I say devote yourself to your spiritual path despite your reservations, your fears and conflicts with others and do so with the knowingness that Earth and her inhabitants will be an enlightened place for it.
