Trust the Plan
To fight or to trust?
It just finished raining for the umpteenth time today and the umpteenth time over the past few weeks. Having lived in drought for most of my life, I love it though. It feels like a gift from the heavens of comfort and cleansing - to stir things up and allow things to grow. And, although at this point I would gladly welcome the sunshine, I will trust in the timing and surrender to the larger plan.
Likewise, it was not in my conscious plan to spend the last week and a half out of action to a flu/virus. I had finished my marking marathon and was planning to focus on other projects for the short time I had before it was time to embark on another marking marathon. The universe had other plans for me, however, and despite my reluctance, due to the fact that I had finished the majority of my work, the timing couldn't have been better. I did not surrender graciously, but out of necessity, I did surrender. Reasons for these unwanted events are not always clear at the time. During this time of transition, we will all find ourselves undergoing various levels of hibernation, emerging from multiple chrysalises as we shed layer after layer of our old selves and fortify ourselves for the future. Each step of the clearing and building are gifts and it is beneficial to accept them as such.
I have had the privilege this year of interacting with people with a diverse range of viewpoints on the world and its current trajectory. And with the recent election, there has been a lot of talk about fighting the system. Yes, there is a place for righteous anger, and for all the other emotions - confusion, frustration, impatience, yes, and even fear. Chances are we will experience all of these on a regular basis. It is, however, imperative that we continue to lift our individual vibrations to a higher setpoint so that these become passing thoughts rather than anchors that hold us in our perceived reality. There is a term - hopium - that has been coined to apply to people like me, who believe that we are entering a new earth and that the planet is on the onwards and upwards. I don't accept this as a negative thing, however, as rather than denying the reality of the world as it has been, I have been thoroughly and willingly red-pilled and will continue to walk through the world with my eyes open.
Once we come to terms with the idea that the world is emerging from darkness and we accept that we are not apart from the darkness but a part of it, we recognise ourselves as part of the solution rather than victims to the world as it was or is. Yes, I believe there is a global alliance working on behalf of good, and that there are everyday people all around me working with the same ideals in mind. I don't believe it is necessary to view this situation with polarity - that either we are completely alone and powerless in our 'fight' or that we are victims needing to be rescued by a saviour. It is no accident that we are here during this time. We were always meant to be part of the solution - part of the plan. We can trust the plan and be part of the plan at the same time. In fact, we must do this as we came here expressly for this purpose.
The trouble is, some of us are only seeing the relentless rain and the clouded skies. These are just a distraction from the bigger picture. My 'hopium' is that I am able to peel back that veneer and see the light shining through from a higher place. Just as, in this moment, I see a tiny orange streetlight peeking through the rain-soaked trees, I see lights from above glinting on a million tiny surfaces that reflect the beauty of the world that we are creating here. The world has changed infinitely for the better since I arrived on this planet and to me the evidence is palpable. If I choose to believe in the positive, it is because I see overwhelming evidence that it exists. And, the more I put my hand towards creating it, the more real it becomes to me. We are master creators - never victims. The creation of the new earth is in our hands with every conscious thought we make and every actionable step we take.
Day after day, under the spell of this virus, I hadn't seen enough signs of improvement to satisfy me. This is the first time in days I have felt well enough even to sit up and work on my computer. Despite this, I have had to trust that my body will come back stronger than ever. Our bodies need to undergo these rebuilding processes sometimes. Perhaps there were fears and silences that I had to face again - the loneliness and vulnerability that we can all learn to embrace if we have the courage to sit with them and enfold ourselves within them. Much of our 'fight' is internal, but building these internal reservoirs enables us to step into our roles in the world with the strength, resilience and compassion we need to make a difference. The world, also, is being renewed. We have to recognise that much of what we see is an illusion - theatre - a movie. To me, reality has never been about what is seen, but what is unseen. The unseen world is much more real. We can connect to a force that is much stronger and much purer than anything that is tangible in the concrete world. When we connect to pure love / source / God energy, the bigger picture becomes evident. The layers are stripped away and the light from the stars floods in.
In this vibration, there is a inner knowing that nothing is wrong and everything is as it should be. When we are connected, we emanate light, and because of this, darkness cannot touch us. We can look down on the illusion without becoming entangled in it. We can trust the plan and be part of the solution. Just holding this elevated frequency is being part of the solution. Like magical alchemists, we can take all our past experiences with us into the new earth - all our broken parts, our wounds, our scars, the pain of the world to which we have been witness, and our compassion for the fears of the world, and we can fashion them into things of beauty. No, we are not at the mercy of the darkness or of the need to be part of 'the fight'. We can choose instead to surrender to our trust in the plan - and to be part of that plan. And, we must allow the clearing to happen. We must allow the rain to wash away all unneeded belief systems, as these stand in the way of truth. The path to truth must be clear or the mists of illusion will remain. There are no 'called' or 'chosen' ones. We will all have the chance to walk forward into the new world. We can all choose to lift back the layers and see the magnitude of the stars beyond.
To dream the impossible dream To fight the unbeatable foe To bear with unbearable sorrow And to run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong And to love pure and chaste from afar To try when your arms are too weary To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest To follow that star No matter how hopeless No matter how far
To fight for the right Without question or pause To be willing to march, march into hell For that heavenly cause
And I know if I'll only be true To this glorious quest That my heart will lie peaceful and calm When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this That one man scorned and covered with scars Still strove with his last ounce of courage To reach the unreachable star
