Early springtime poses many changes, from warm and pleasant days to cold and snowy ones buffeted by heavy winds. It’s the time of precipice, before spring births forth. Within the self the time of precipice shows up at any time of year, the struggle for something new to emerge. As with the days of early spring there is a settling that will take place and the tensions of the precipice will abate. With patience, what was once so urgent and even dangerous at spring’s awakening will smooth into a warm summer’s day. With a confident heart and steady eye on the future look forward to what is to come in the sure blooming ahead, as it always comes.
Align with Spirit throughout the day, asking for guidance in little ways so that your balance is maintained and your journey along a steady and creative path ensured. Allow Spirit’s wisdom to aid you as you decide what comes next on your journey to wholeness. Spirit’s wisdom comes from the heart and it may not be what you expect but it will be what you need.
Do not be upset by every stone and pothole on the road to balance, for they too are part of the journey. They too point out that there are always challenges to encounter and to not get swept up in feeling that you are not doing well on your journey to wholeness. Keep going. And without regret sidestep the obstructions and feel no remorse for the fact that you stepped into what naturally formed on your path. Just keep going, for the end result will be the same.
The road to change is never straight. It weaves, wobbles and backtracks, taking you through its necessary and inevitable twists and turns. Do not lose faith but keep going, for life’s unfolding is just that, full of twists and turns, playing out like a great mystery in which the ending is never truly known except the one great and permanent change at the end. During the playing out of the mystery of life maintain an attitude of curiosity, interest, fascination and constant openness to the mystery of what is to come so that every moment fills you with awe.
Keep your two feet on the ground, stationed on planet Earth, even as your spirit soars and your heart yearns for other worlds, other experiences and other knowledge. Like a rooted tree stand firmly attached even though your branches reach outward to embrace all that is. To be human is a privilege, with the opportunity to live among so much beauty and pain, so much love and despair, so much delight and intensity, the opposites that make life a divine privilege. Make the most of your experiences and make your time there of the utmost importance, for you and your life, in the great turmoil of it all, matter immensely.
