The Art of Awareness is how we learn to integrate and collaborate with our divinity to create in an unlimited way. We are letting our Divine Self re-create us, and then create through us, as our personal Artist in Residence.
This sounds great! But it isn't easy...
Fortunately, our mind doesn't get this memo at the start of this journey when everything feels golden and, like the prodigal son arriving on the doorstep, we catch a whiff of the great fatted calf and our dear mother's perfume. Home beckons, but we think it is a place we will go to be honored. We have yet to realize home is something we become, and this becoming involves a tiny bit of...reconstruction (*cough*).
What I thought enlightenment would be like...
What it's really like...
Much like a clueless caterpillar, I didn't realize the actual process of awakening and enlightenment looked much more like this:
So why do this crazy thing? And when do we get to the fun freedom part?
Our part is to choose our response. Will we cooperate, allow, and trust...or, will we staple gun our eyes back shut and fight the process tooth and nail?
We get to the fun freedom stuff when we surrender, face our dragons and demons, learn to love ourselves back together again, and turn the driving over to our soul who will happily and capably carry us through the whole process.
I am writing this blog because...
So know, I meet you as one in the trenches. I’m fully committed and passionate about my realization. I've held nothing back from it. Along the way, I've taken a lot of notes, and I have some entertaining stories of how this process has rolled out and through me. I have deep compassion and respect for others who are experiencing their own remembrance of, and reunion, with their divinity.
Our soul holds the parts of us we have not yet faced in ourselves. While the return to wholeness is an act of incredible self-love, the dark nights of the soul can be daunting. I’ve developed this blog to Light the Journey home. As I share with you, I hope you will see the road more clearly, recognize yourself in my stories, discover a helpful tool or two, get a fresh perspective, or maybe just have a good laugh (Lord knows, we can use as many of those as we can get). While we always must take our own steps, it helps to know there are others who are walking too and understand both the sucky and spectacular stuff that happens along the way.
Until next time, my fellow pioneers of consciousness...remember, you are the artist and the artwork, the inspired and the inspiration. You are so much more than you may believe.
Love and blessings!
