Headed Nowhere Fast?

Stop following someone else’s map.

What fills your soul?

 

I am happy even before I have a reason.

I am full of light even before the sky

Can greet the sun or the moon.

Dear companions,

We have been in love with God

For so very, very long.

What can I now do but Forever

Dance!

 

Has your soul ever been filled with more light than the sun can give? Have you ever woken up filled with happiness and you were not sure why?

Some who read this may be able to answer yes, but likely only a few and those times can be counted on one hand. Maybe, you were on a magical vacation were everything just seemed perfect for a few days or you spent a night in the embrace of one you loved deeply.

The brittle truth is that we wake up in fear of what is to come or despair over what has come. Our souls may hint of real joy from time to time, but all too often it is a sad veil covering the dark truths that we have buried so well. We don’t intend to live like that but what we often call the “reality” of life follows us like a dog waiting to be fed. We feed it time and time again and are completely unaware that we do this act of self betrayal. We believe that this “reality” is truth and we must therefore feed it to keep it from attacking us.

The real truth, however, is that the dog has no teeth. What we call reality is actually memory of things that no longer exist or fear and fantasy over things that have not happened. The present moment by moment of our lives is always pregnant with hope of why we were created. We were designed to reflect the One who designed us. We were designed to dance a dance that only we can dance and to sing a song that is given it’s birth in our soul. You and I were created to shine light brighter than any sun has ever dreamed of. Yet, here we sit believing we are nothing more than the victims of cruel “reality”. Our light is hidden from a world that longs to see it and sadly even from ourselves.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

The eternal gate of freedom has been thrown open and the renewal of your “reality” simply waits for you to claim it. What are you waiting for? It will not come to you. It will not seek you out. You must desire the truth of your authentic self more than you desire anything else, and you must believe you can know it and live it. Only then can you coax it out of hiding and reflect the light you were intended to display. Then and only then you can cause the whole of the universe to rejoice with you in the glory of your design and the One who designed you.
