The energies! Have been crazy!!!! Not only that, the rate of change in my life has been constant. It used to be a big thing in life would happen and you’d get a little breathing room in-between to normalize, reground and refocus.
Not anymore. The only still point reference I have found is inside me. I feel like a leaf aloft in the swirling currents of the fall wind.
My attitude three months ago was, ‘Wow, can it stop now?’ And, well, it never did. Now I understand this is the new normal. As a matter of fact I have a feeling that this is the new normal at low ebb and it will get more and more… more – of whatever.
I have finally looked the universe in the eye and said, “Bring it! I will travel in your currents, I will spin in the sky and I will blow across the earth, for it will be what it will be.”
I now feel energized positively since I am no longer fighting against the current, so to speak, and it’s a new adventure. I’m gonna learn to ride those currents like a pro, surf the winds of change with panache, take in the beauty of her days, the majesty of her night skies, and sing an inner hymn of praise to all I see. I’ve given up to the universe all creatures that are hers, for her protection, my trees my stones and all things dear to me, because only she knows what she is about. I will ride her mysterious currents and land where she puts me and I will sprout and grow.
There was a fifth mode of prayer, the “lost mode,” a prayer that’s based solely in feeling. In unity with our inner landscape and our imagination it would reveal itself in the outer world when we felt the soul of the elements from within and called to them, they listened. It was a communion – a wholeness, a unity.
In the deep dark recesses of our souls we remember a time when life was different, had a different power to it, when our connection to the spirit and our connected natures to our planet were much different. When you could call up and out of your inner world a power that could alter your external world. Where prayers like these would work and elemental energy would respond.
At Tara in this fateful hour,
I place all Heaven with its power,
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the wind with its swiftness along its path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the Earth with its starkness
All these I place
By God’s almighty help and grace
Between myself and the powers of darkness
(Not that I am expecting darkness of any kind except when my shadow wisdom has something to say.)
She, the mother, is transforming herself and us and it is so far shaping up to be a hobbit’s journey, a true and rare adventure.
I am ready to fly.
