Beauty and Love in Times of Upheaval and Change
Read this beautiful piece by Kathe Izzo for inspiration during
this Solar Eclipse (new moon) time period:
“This period of Destabilization
(not just this weekend but these last few years
& the next one coming)
has been predicted for literally eons.
The current US president is just a symptom
of loss of equilibrium that began generations ago.
The turbulence of the next few days
should be mostly internal
however many of us have experienced
or may experience sudden redirection of our path,
disruption in what we thought was constant & true,
the veil lifting on things that we had
long stored away as finished. Surprise.
This should be celebrated.
I’m going to show you how.
Our entire physical universe is illusory in nature,
a holographic projection of light,
including our bodies.
This is how we connect to the universe
& to the divine streams of energy
that bring life to all of nature’s gorgeousness
& that mysteriously move us to take action,
over & over again, in spite of all difficulties,
to make art, make war, make money, make trouble,
As embodied beings, as we are moved to Make
over & over again.
Although we may be exquisitely aware of
this sexy & divine light consciousness that runs through us,
we also experience with our seemingly reliable
senses, the differences between things,
the hard edges, the separation.
It is our raison d’être to face this (or not) everyday.
This weekend’s cluster fuck of frustration & inspiration
feels like the straw that broke the camel’s back.
This is ridiculous.
I am here to tell you it can be so easy.
It was never meant to be hard.
The main solution for the coming days
is a combination of laying low (yep, resting),
removing expectations in a very specific
& generous way,
being kind to one another,
staying open AND
feeling each cell of your body as a star.
Fill with light.
It’s not a cliche and
you don’t need to have somer radical epiphany
or enlightenment, no key card to an exclusive club
to do this.
You are meant to be fully efficient with love.
You are meant to be open
& receive everything you need to know,
to be completely successful on your path.
Don’t give up now.
Just try again.
Use a tiny bit more effort.
Experience who you are.
Do not edit or try to abandon who you are.
The absolute, most important thing
is that you keep the way clear.
Just like sweeping the floor.
Do what you can.
Little by little.

Do what calls your heart;
effective action comes from love.
It is unstoppable, & it is enough”
