As I think back on our past weekend and the experiences and messages that were shared a few things stand out in my mind. We are a society of convenience.. I know that I try to push myself to do the right things and constantly know myself so that I can improve. I also know that those that I’ve called to surround me in my life all have aspects or lessons that I need to draw from.
We’ve all talked about sacrifice and giving back to Spirit as a way of honoring Spirit for helping us on our path. As I look at me.. what do I sacrifice or give back for Spirit’s wisdom? I could list many things that I’ve thrown in the “here’s what I’m doing” column.. but as I really look at it closely I’ve noticed that it also has a nice flavor of convenience about it. Don’t get me wrong, it still is a sacrifice and does have meaning to me.. but it seems to stop just short of stepping outside of my box.. It’s a “convenient” sacrifice.. the message that jumps out at me is “to show my thanks I’m willing to give back… just enough to not put me out”.
Well, that’s an eye opener.
Noticing this about myself obviously didn’t make me jump up and down :-) What it did do is flash back many many conversations I’ve had with those around me on that topic… as Spirit was presenting me with this message for quite a while now and I just got it. It seems that I was able to convince myself or put a nice wrapper on what I was “sacrificing” so that it seemed that I was giving a lot… but in reality what was it at all?
I had a hard time stepping back into Muggle-ville as I just couldn’t understand why we would create this reality. Well, I still don’t get that but have come to the understanding that maybe I’m not supposed to know that right now. What I do know is that I’m here and that there is a lot of work to do.
We all come from different backgrounds and have experienced many different things. We are all the same energy but different beings in this world. I think the message that we have to give is the same message.. but we’re all presenting it in our own unique way. Many times we don’t realize that others are hearing that message.. I think it’s our responsibility to listen to Spirit and get our message out there.. even if we think that no one is listening. Be it by teaching others, writing, creating, counseling; whatever the method is really doesn’t matter. For those of you who want to push outside the box, please let me know. I would like to help get our messages out there!
I am going to work on taking the pressure cooker and putting the world in it. I feel it's time to take the fight to the enemy. I would ask each of you for your wisdom, guidance, and kick in the ass along the way. I also want to again thank each of you (and Spirit) for the messages you have passed on.. knowingly or unknowingly!! They all seem to be floating up and slapping me in the face :-)
Love to all!
