Guerillas In the Mist

The world within is a mysterious place; as the mists weave their way deep inside, there is a powerful sense of quiet alongside an edge of wariness as to what lies hidden amongst the weaving threads of consciousness and the mists of the unknown. In many ways, these mists represent the soul, but they seem nebulous and intangible; beyond words and definition, and on this journey to Self, we want clarity and vision, not the unknowable and the indefinable.   

As we stand hidden in the mists within, we can hear the fog horns in the distance and see the radiating rays shining out from the lighthouse leading the way. It is all too easy to see why so many step back from the world within, for it can be a place of mystery and uncertainty, yet at the same time, as we stand consciously in the mists, our eyesight begins to adjust and we can feel a deeper connection to the world of the soul. It is at the heart of these mists where we feel at One with the gentle and undulating rhythm of the soul, and where we can, ultimately, find clarity and vision. 

There is a sense that we need to have faith and step into the mists in order to find ourselves. Although we may become lost or disorientated, if we pause, breathe and re-centre, we can feel the strength rising up from within leading the way.  The more we can become One with the true ebb and flow of the soul, the more we can rest in the stillness and let go of fear. Of course, the future is unknowable, but if we can rest fully and consciously in the present, then the need to chase rainbows stops as we become the rainbow and find Truth. 

Of course, the fog horn and the lighthouse presents a somewhat eerie and disconcerting scene for many, and instead of finding the stillness and the strength in the mist, some find yet more fear and angst. Fear builds upon fear, and in time, it erodes and corrodes the stillness and leads to a disconnection between mind, body and soul. Yet, to stand strong in the mist takes courage, for fear is a very real and very potent force. If we sense the presence of guerrillas in the mists of the soul, and let them lead the way, we start to give them power, shape and form. 

Change is unknowable, and the current shifts, twists and turns are intense and beyond definition. Yet, intuitively we know that we are a part of this change, and to fear it or resist it seems futile. Whilst we will want to understand it, for that is a part of being human, to give in to it now feels like walking backwards. Inevitably, there will be some that succumb to the fear and step back, but there are many now who are ready to merge the unknowable with the knowable in order to fully embrace the new waves of consciousness as they lap the shores of the soul.  

Once we realise the beauty and the treasure of the soul, we realise that the mists are simply our fears and our worries, as well as a reminder that much of the expanse within is still unchartered terrain. This is exciting, for it means that we have much still to experience and discover, celebrate and embrace!

As we continue to open up our hearts, minds and souls to Truth and to the magnificent joy of Wholeness, the waves of bliss and love grow stronger and richer. Whilst there can be no denying that the journey of awakening has, thus far, been a journey of epic proportion, the discoveries made along the way have been inspirational, empowering and heart-warming on many levels. During this process, we have opened up to strength, Truth, intent and vision, and the more we embrace these qualities, the more we realise that we are ready to fully embrace our gifts in order to live the best lives possible. 

It is important to acknowledge the role that each of us has played in the journey of awakening, for every single moment before now has been in preparation for the present. Although each of us has had times when we have felt like driftwood being twisted and shaped by the currents and carried along with the ebb and flow of the tides, intuitively we can feel and sense the shifts along the way as we have awakened and risen up to become the beacon of light shining brightly within, radiating through the mists with strength, clarity and vision. So, whilst we may feel powerless, we need to gently re-centre and remind ourselves that we are Whole and then our strength and Divinity can lead the way...

The Cusp Point

It is hard to deny the unmistakable feeling that life is reaching something of a ‘cusp point’; a sense that we are approaching a time of energetic climax and realisation. Although this ‘cusp point’ feels powerful and intense, the predominant and overwhelming feeling of this time is both exciting and liberating. It seems clear that it is our perception of this moment of energetic climax that shapes and defines our experience; see it as a tsunami charging towards us, full steam ahead, and we can feel powerless and afraid, but if we see ourselves as riding the crest of the wave towards a new dawn of consciousness and way of being, the whole dynamic changes.

As the different waves and threads of consciousness all merge together into the ‘cusp point’, there is a sense of shift and change on many different levels of being. At the same time, the need to ‘let go’ seems to be growing in intensity as we step back from resisting and fighting the flow in order to become One with both ourselves and the Divine. Resistance is a part of being human, for we strive to understand and analyse our experiences (for that is how we grow and evolve), but there is a risk that we can become paralysed in analysis and unable to let go of the side rails in order to become One with the heaving mass of energies and currents converging within. 

Of course, letting go is not for the feint-hearted, for it means having faith in the unknowable and having trust in the present moment rather than remaining focused on the path ahead. Even when the path ahead is murky and hidden from sight, we can still struggle to find ‘the answers’ in order to move our lives from where we are to where we want to be. However, the more conscious and present we can be in the moment, the more we can celebrate all that we are and all that we have. Whilst we may not be living the life of our dreams, by living consciously in the present, we are making the most of every single moment instead of projecting ourselves and our energy into the future to some moment that hasn’t happened yet.

This is not about losing sight of dreams or goals, but it is about remaining centred in the present moment in order to feel Whole and complete NOW! Once we can feel truly centred in the moment, we stop chasing the horizon and realise that, as Creators, we have it within ourselves to shape and define our lives in a very different way. In essence, we become the energy of all that we are, instead of trying to reach towards it as something in the distance, and such a monumental shift allows us to feel the joy of being, and feeling, Whole and complete. 

So, instead of fearing the forthcoming ‘cusp point’ it seems clear that, by opening up to it and embracing it, we can ride the crests of the wave and celebrate the moment consciously and whole-heartedly. This is a time to feel the liberation and freedom within as we become One with the waves lapping the shores of the soul and allow this time of energetic climax to take its course...
