How to Gracefully Walk into the Emerging New World...Now
Change is happening! A sweeping, life-altering transformation is well under way. Even as old-world structures crumble around us, a new world–bright with possibilities–is already rising. We can begin walking in this beautiful new world, this spiritual renaissance, now. Go to article "An Urgent Wake-up Call."
What will it take to make this shift? Our old assumptions no longer serve us, and we’re looking for new and better explanations and laws to apply. In a nutshell, we’re entering a period of love, brotherhood, and peace. I know, that’s still really hard to believe, but it’s true. It’s essential that we move from a focus on the material to a focus on the spiritual, that we move from competition to brotherhood, and that we move from fear to love. So, here are some steps you can take right now to begin living in the new world:
Here are five steps you can take:
1.) Release all of your outdated beliefs and attachments--all of them. (Go to article "Releasing Attachments.")
2.) Open your heart. Go into your heart and embrace your brothers and sisters, Mother Earth, and Spirit or Being.
3.) Simplify your life. Reduce your consumption, your use of resources, and your dependence on others.
4.) Harmonize with Mother Earth and Spirit. Reconnect with the natural world around you and open yourself to guidance.
5.) Recognize and accept grace–trust! Open to the possibility of receiving even more grace.
There is nothing so much like God
in all the universe as silence.
Go Often to Those Places Where You Remember
I can leave my house in the morning, drive to Capitol Reef National Park, and be hiking there before noon--amazing. Capitol Reef is an incredibly primative and breathtakingly beautiful redrock desert in the east-central part of Utah. The vast space, tall redrock cliffs, and exotic desert plant life make you feel as if you're on another planet. The experience of being there washes me clean and reconnects me to the earth...and to the divine. I come back feeling like I have been gone for weeks.
I'm sure you have your own places that you love as much as I love Capitol Reef, places that allow you to shed your burdens and responsibilties and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. I can't think of anything that is as healing or as replenishing. It's a struggle to stay centered and calm in the midst of your daily life, particularly if you live a fast-paced urban lifestyle. When you go into nature, nature beckons to you and embraces you. All you have to do is to relax and harmonize with the loving energy that surrounds you there.
Take the time to return to the places in nature that draw you, the places where you remember. They will bless you and heal you and help make you whole again. They are always waiting to love you.
