In this time of great change and flux we must remain constant and observant. You must not allow yourself to condemn the intermediate circumstances that manifest through the time of flux. Your concentration may scatter as you endure the challenge of change.
This then is a time for ceremony and celebration. Ceremony done without judgemental attachment to form allows for concentration to remain during flux. Celebration allows us to give thanks for enduring moments of great flux which at times seems never ending.
As always, remaining within the circle of self becomes challenging if trust and faith are not present. Having trust in the Divine is not enough, you must also learn to have trust in yourself and the family of man. You must give as well as receive and celebrate the opportunities to provide for both. This or that are your choices but know that a choice must be made in order to create experience.
The more sacred the person, the more challenges there will be with your bodies. Here is where ceremony is called for. Ceremony, as simple as lighting a candle while eating your meals can express the deepest gratitude for food or anything else. If your concentration is seriously challenged then longer, more involved ceremony may be called for.
Do not worry about prayer. Each breath you take is a prayer for one who is sincerely engaged in the path of their own becoming. Do not ask, “becoming what?” for there is no answer to that. Only here are you like the feather or dry leaf upon the wind. Each one steeped in fear or marshalled by trust and faith.
Let nothing be as a stone; hard and unyielding to the bare hands and feet of men. Let all things resemble clay which when shaped or moulded become things of beauty, like sunrise or sunset. In all things remain both the participant and the observer. And what shall you observe? Your self, of course! By observing yourself you will to see both similarity and contrast in all of humanity. Remember, rigidness in belief, form and practice is a trap.
The path to wholeness or oneness was never easy. That was only desire on the part of humans so as to avoid the complexities of life. Therefore, a life well lived can neither be controlled nor avoided. By trying to avoid it you create pain and suffering. Remember here that suffering in its original form simply meant to “experience something”.
We send you blessings as well as love, light, peace and joy. Remember to watch the sun.
