Pay attention. These are the days you’ll look back on, the vivid memories you’ll recall, the tales you’ll relate to anyone who asks. You’ve ended an era, and begin a new age.
When you raise children, you are so deeply embedded in each hectic day, that most of them pass without a sense of loss. Without a thought that you will someday longingly wish them back. It is like that now. Not that we’ll wish back the struggle, but that we may long for the adventure in our quest for freedom.
We are close enough now to feel it. The visionaries amongst us see it. There is nothing to compare it to, and no way to prepare. We are creating a new world.
We came for many reasons, not the least of which is excitement. It is the contrast, the goal, the “go where no one has gone before” part of life that spurs us on and fills out minds with purpose.
This moment now, this storm before the quiet, is one in which we hone our skills. The quiet will come at our bidding, it’s true. Yet as humans, we’re addicted to the storm.
We are creators without directors now. The controllers have left the building. The theme and action is ours to build.
We tread on new ground. Remember that a show without direction can be chaotic, and seemingly purposeless. Keep always in your mind, “to what end?” This is what makes a good director.
Let outcomes drive your thoughts and words, while compassion guides your movements. We did not come only to remove the shackles; we came to demonstrate sovereignty.
What’s over is the ownership. What is being witnessed now is akin to fish as they flop around in the net that captured them. Their only option is one they won’t see. They will continue to flail. Watching doesn’t change their fate, but it may alter ours. A more productive act would be to prepare for what’s next.
This is the “we are not done” part. Our role as conscious creators now takes center stage. Pay attention. Choose the direction of your thoughts. What emerges now are individual roles and tendencies. We co-create this part while directing it; all the time on stage performing.
Belief and intent force the seed to split and begin to grow. Realize nothing happens now until we make it so. We are that powerful.
The field is wide open. I’ve heard incredible dreams from some of my friends. I’ve read beautiful posts describing wonderful imaginings of where we are headed. SPOILER ALERT: The Trolls movie concludes with the message that happiness is something inside you, not something you have to get. All around us are visions, pick one to start with and create your own.
It’s all possible now. None of us know exactly when on the calendar this change shows up before our eyes. Yet it is certain to manifest once the feeling is true. The trick is to abandon the notion that it has to make sense, or follow any particular order. These are the moments of reckless abandon.
Allow into your heart your wildest dreams. This heart of yours is the engine, waiting for your spark of realization. It will take you anywhere you deem possible.
So, do not wait until the fat lady sings. She may never. It’s over. Yet we are not done. Now comes the fun part; the part we create ourselves. We can do this.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
With so much love,
