Wake Up and Remember
Each of us is an extraordinary and miraculous living entity with infinite potential. It has always been this way. Our core essence is a divine spark of universal love that animates us and illumines our consciousness with insight and awareness of ourselves and our surroundings. These fundamental underlying aspects are innate in every human.
The intricacy of possibilities that had to formulate from throughout the cosmos, arrive and coalesce in careful order upon our planet, and then percolate and integrate together to bring life and breath to our present moment, is utterly astounding. We can scarcely fathom the complexity and sophistication that occurs throughout our body each moment granting us life, much less the eternities it took to gather stardust and deliver it to our precise location in this particular galaxy so that we have a planet to call home.
How does such an incredible foundation of marvelous and awe-inspiring possibilities bring us to a world where seeming chaos and destruction are the order of the day, especially coming from the very humanity that this precious planet formed to birth, nurture and support, all those countless millennia ago? Would such a spectacular beginning be destined for a dismal and disparaging conclusion? Or is it possible that we have been on a very long journey that is finally coming full circle and delivering us back to our origin – only now we have amazing wisdom, experience and understanding that such an adventure provides.
This apparent chaos, and the fear that it engenders, is the very mechanism of awakening that we placed in our path to remind us to wake up and remember. Remember that we are more. More than a corporeal body in survival mode and more than our collected and collective, perceived, and accepted identities. The extremes of this chaotic time period are so completely contrary to our inner feelings that by their very expression, we are remembering something that has always been with us. We are more than all of this, infinitely more.
We are swiftly arousing from a perception of separation that we allowed to envelop us slowly and steadily over innumerable incarnations, generations and moments. How else does one find themselves in this adventure seemingly separated from the very love and compassion that it intuitively knows it is made from? Beings so filled with loving potential would never knowingly create devastation, annihilation and obliteration with one another – it is neither rational nor logical. Unless of course, over time we simply forgot who we are.
Deep within the very heart of our being, the spark of love is growing brighter and it is calling out to us. One by one, we are steadily emerging into the realization that our very essence is divine in nature and that our creative potential has always been one of compassion, kindness, generosity, dignity and grace. This is our heritage and our eternal soul center.
Deep within the very heart of our being, the spark of love is growing brighter.-Harold W. Becker
The workings of our lives, the daily dramas and traumas, laughter, joys and tears, are very real to us in our immediate perception and experience. Yet, with just a simple deep breath, we are able to unite our many fragmented perspectives and move from our mind to our heart, from our intellect to our feeling world. Even if for just a brief moment, we instantly touch the eternal love that is ever present and in doing so, we step out of the immediacy of our time-born thoughts and emotions and converge with our greater knowing that there is more than our perceptions and senses report. In these moments we give ourselves the gift of reuniting with the love that we are.
The bigger our perspective, the grander our view of life will be. In the modern age, we readily see this whether through a telescope or a microscope while the indigenous of ages past have known the same thing by retaining many of the faculties of their inner connection. The timeless story remains; life is expanding in all directions and appearances are never what they appear to be. The narrative of life is far too grand to be contained in a singular perspective, ideal or belief. It is the diversity that unites the common with the uncommon and bears witness to the interconnection of all things, real and imaginable, throughout eternity. Made up fact blurs with fantasy and imagination. All of which create outcomes.
So perhaps it is time to begin asking the bigger questions and move beyond the limited tale of us and them. For in the end, we will find the beginning. The earth journey continues. Only this time we will write it from our heart since we have learned what fear and separation do. Remember, you are more, infinitely more, than you can possibly and presently imagine.
