Mountains and Molehills


There can be no denying that this is a time of great shift and change; from the tiniest atom to the most majestic mountain, everything is shifting, moving and evolving. Of course, this has been the way since the dawn of time, but things seem to have intensified and quickened now.

As each of us continues to embrace change, like the drifting continents and the growing mountains, we are evolving and expanding both within and without. In many ways this suggests a slow and gradual process, but when looked at in the terms of Universal time, this is but the blink of an eye, and in this particular blink of an eye we are changing beyond recognition!

Life presents challenges to face and mountains to climb, but as we continue to move mountains we can see that we are creating our very own snow capped mountain range with its own beauty and majesty. In other words, our efforts are reaping benefits, and whilst it feels like a long and drawn-out process, things are changing. 

As we now take another step forward on the path ahead, there is a feeling of hope and optimism rising up and welcoming us like the rays of a new dawn. The waves of change are not always easy waves to ride, and there are times when we may feel like the ebbs are pulling us off-course or worse, but with strength and focus, we realise that we can move beyond the eddies, to the stillness and peace of the mountains.

Of course, even the mountains move and shift, for nothing ever stays the same, but in the relative stillness of the mountain air we can collect our thoughts, re-focus and begin to gain a truer sense of Self. As we gaze at the magnificence of our very own inner Himalayas, we can celebrate at the monumental journey that we have made to Self. Whilst this journey is on-going, this doesn’t mean that we cannot take a while to breathe in the mountain air and be thankful for all that we have. 

As we pause to gaze at the awe-inspiring site of the mountains, we can see the many inner walls that we have broken down, the rivers that we have re-directed and the dams that we have allowed to run free in the process. With each passing day we have taken a step closer towards Self and a breath nearer bliss. The sight of the mountains is a sign that we have reached a milestone within, for we have opened up to the power of our intention and the Truth of our existence. 

It is important to realise that we have not been sitting powerlessly on the sidelines of life waiting for this to happen though; we need to acknowledge our own role in the process, for it is through our own grit and determination that we now find ourselves in a different world. 

The key to expanding the beauty and strength of the world within, to the world without, is to nurture, nourish and tend on every level of our Beings. It is time to let go of self-judgment, negative thinking, fears and lack and to step beyond feeling frozen in a paralysis between head and heart. 

Opening up a clear and honest dialogue within is the first step for we need to reclaim the responsibility for how we think, feel and manifest. Whilst we may not be able to control every aspect of what happens in life, we do have control over how we react, and this is where we need to focus our intentions now. 

We then need to let go of feelings of guilt, anger or shame in connection to the realisation that we have allowed ourselves to become consumed by negative feelings and lack; we are human, and sometimes we need to travel along a certain path to realise that another path is the ‘right’ one for us. Blame and shame, fear and lack all come from the same place, and they feed a cycle of restriction; the time has now come to break this cycle and change it to one of growth and expansion. The time has come to no longer see molehills as mountains, but to see them for what they truly are. Truth is not always an easy path to embrace, but it is the only true path to Self. 

How we think and feel is the force that shapes and moves the mountains within; when we connect to the true breathtaking magnificence of this energy, we feel awakened; refreshed and renewed, and it is this energy that we need to embrace now. The more we open ourselves up to be awakened, the more consciously we live in the present moment and the more we can embrace bliss in every possible way.
It is time to stand on those mountains and welcome a new day; one filled with hope, optimism, love and divinity...
