Just an update for anyone who has followed my escapades of moving house. I have put a couple of shots in my gallery of the view out front of my new residence. Now if I could just concentrate on my writing I will be fine 🙂 Mark
Today was a day of amazing things. I began the day with an incredible collaboration of minds to create a lovely poem with the Bardess of Scotland (scottishmomus), and on here at my site, Soul Seeker, which was a first for me. Then I decided a little leisurely stroll through our local markets was just the ticket. The sun was shining beautifully, it was lovely and warm (it is winter here in Australia), and I was meeting the most friendly people all around where I was going (our school holidays have just begun). Little did I know of what was about to happen.
As we go through life we begin to see some patterns in our lives, and one of those is the synchronicities that occur around us where things will happen multiple times to get our attention. In this instance, 2 days ago, I had bumped into the lovely lady that I was in a relationship with for a year (look up on the menu bar or click here ‘The Love‘ for the story. This story also gave me an understanding of unconditional love (original post), but from a different direction). And she was still beaming that lovely energy of hers out into the world. So when I ran into her at the markets again today I could feel something within shift. I was not sure at first what it meant so I just let it ‘go with the flow’ as I knew it would come forward when it was ready.
I wasn’t quite ready for spirits ‘ready’, as I was driving the car when I was given the most beautiful, heartfelt message from spirit that brought me immediately to tears and left me quite overwhelmed by such an epiphany that I could only pull the car to the side of the road and just sit there and realise the importance of what I was being shown.
Spirit said, ‘You ARE unconditional love, you have never NOT been unconditional love, there is no trying, there is no achieving or striving to be unconditional love, you are already there!’. The more I thought about it, the more I could feel the love and beauty that came with this message. The tears would not stop. Even now as I am writing my eyes are watering from this incredible love that came with this message. And the understanding that was shown to me all comes down to this….we are going through a process of understanding as we go through the different levels of spirituality (and I don’t mean someone is higher or lower in levels, we are all on different journeys so we are going through them in different ways), and as we understand something we have an ‘aha’ moment, integrate that into who we are, and move on with that now being a part of who we are.
But I suppose, like most others, I have been just letting things go…being in the moment…and being guided from within, facing my fears and removing them to be ‘open’ so that at some stage I would understand something and then ‘know’ unconditional love. That HAS happened within the previous relationship in what I had been shown within that. And I had been doing everything from that place of ‘being open’ and just giving from ‘within’ with no expectation (I thought), and being in a place that had no judgement and the understanding of others journey’s because of that. But to be told I was already there came as a bit of a shock.
This I did not expect (and you know what expectations will do). Spirit gently told me that this was part of the journey, so that I WOULD understand when my time came. It has always been the reverse of all that we do. Like if you fear something, you always go the other way from it, but it is in facing it that it sets you free. But you must run away, so that when you do face that fear, it has a very big effect on you when it is faced, so that the change will have a marked impact on who you are within.
Today I’ve been ‘marked & impacted’. What more can I say. It was one of the most heartfelt moments in my life and something that will never be forgotten. It has altered me within quite significantly already, and like the many other ‘events’ in my life will take some time to integrate into who I am now becoming. Spirit has been asking me to ‘wait’ as there was something I needed to see before I began my writing for my book. I think the waiting may be now over. And here I was thinking it was just the move to my new home that I was waiting for. This is much nicer!
So I hope I have been able to express this part of my journey so that others may understand. How we take on board the many things that affect us on a daily basis, and the jewels that come upon us unannounced, but all the more beautiful because of that.
May your understanding of your path be always with the unconditional love that is always in your heart.
Love and light,
Right…it’s done! I have moved into my new place and have begun the contemplation of just what this move means for my future. The urge to restart my healing from a better place and also have space to find the soul within, without the struggles of life constantly knocking on the door.
So while I was in this mood of regarding my place in life, a Bardess of renown came knocking on my door…well, a comment anyway…and being also in the hold of a thought on what is life, proceeded to bring my soul out to play, and convince me it was time to express myself using the words that were tumbling within.
So in collaboration with scottishmomus, the poetess of the highlands, here is our poem to begin a new journey, one of hope and healing for the future.
journey far in waxing, waning moon…
words of healing, life in tune…
Believe then, in magic,
writ by silver’d stars…
And belief within,
Life open, without bars…
Hush, spirit, listen well,
heed that aching need…
To find the truth,
the beginning of a seed…
Be still, in the knowing,
Let silence fill your mind…
A gift from up above,
a wonder you will find…
No magic be cast here,
Mere souls in perfect tune…
With love and a sharing,
Perfect harmony with the moon…
Be faithful to the aching,
The voice that cries within…
For in that understanding,
is a love that’s always been.
Many thanks momus, it was a pleasure to ‘come out and play’ 🙂
My apologies if I have ignored anyone or not replied to any comments over the last week or so, but I’ve taken the plunge and moved house. Besides not being able to find anything (computer included), spirit decided I needed a break, so to do that required a very genius idea, spirit got me to go to my telephone provider and ask them to do something simple, like create a new broadband account. It is now buried somewhere very deep in a room somewhere and they have let me know I MAY have it by the end of this week. Well, at least I think they said this week 🙂 Hopefully I shall return sometime in the future and join back in with ‘family’ and catch up with a few thousand comments and emails. I hope ‘family’ are all well and your journeys are at peace, as this last month or so has been very testing within for us all. Namaste
