You are in the MOST incredible relationship right now, that is both unconditional and absolutely conditional, simultaneously.
Right Now, life is having a relationship with me.
It knocks on my door about 10 times a minute.
It shapes me, then enters me, penetrates me, caresses me, holds me and tenderly cares for me in all my sleeping and waking hours. It cuccoons me in a soft embrace that preserves, protects and provides for me.
And, what is my relationship like with my life in return?
Well, I’m often forgetful of it. I take it forgranted, demand more of it, get frustrated with it, get angry and blaming and violent with myelf and others about it. I loose sight of what is given and provided for me on a moment by moment basis. Then when I think I can’t deal with life anymore, I break relationship and give the rights of my life away, into the hands of any others who are willing to take responsibility for me, instead of me.
I will give it away to doctors who tell me about the conditions and state of my own mind and body. I will give it to educational authorities to determine my cleverness, brilliance and tell me what my genius is (or if I have none). I will give it to a governing ‘body’ of people who decide for me the rules by which I have my relationship with my own life, and if that wasn’t enough, I then give the authority to just about everyone that I come into contact with, or have relationship with to treat me the way I think I should be treated but am unwilling to treat myself.
I get upset and blame others for abusing, abandoning and using me when I am the one who has totally failed to take hold of myself. I failed to recieve this gift that Life gave me. I am the one who did not look Life in the eye and say, “Thank you, I take it!” Then to love, honour cherish and obey this gift of Me. I am the one who did not see the heart of Life and how she loves me in the sweetest, most sublime and effortless way, without question, hesitation or doubt. The love that Life has for me is as consistent at the air and perpetual as the turning of the earth, as bright as the sun and as quiet and elegant as the night sky. Her love is eternal. And, what did I do with it? I passively assumed the role, remained mostly unaware and gave it away, helplessly expecting someone else to do if for me.
Life holds a door open for a while. She parts the cosmos and the heaven’s and makes a little space, wrapped in a bubble of breatheable geseous liquid elements, moulds a body from the clay of her body and invites us to Live in this moment right Now. Life keeps offering the space but how much time and space do we believe that we can have? We can have a longer space, or a shorter time. It is conditional upon our receiving of it, and dependant upon how we choose our relationship back with Life to be.
What are the consequences of missing this opportunity?
What happens if you continue to fail to recognize the Love that Life has for you?
You see, life will never give up on me. She will open door after door, offer opportunity after opportunity, create body after body, unerringly, abundantly. But I am the one who will suffer. I am the one who will pull away and get lost and feel alone, and drown in my own sorrows of Lack. I am the one who will be stripped and shattered and fragmented - all given out into the hands of others to use for their own power gain and ego reign. I am the one who will be exhausted from too much trying and years of crying in the efforts I make to create and manifest what I think I do not have and was not already given. I am the one who will break under the illusion that I am nothing, not important, un-mattering and disempowered.
Where have I let myself go to?
To whom do I give my authority, my power?
To whom did I forsake my knowing?
What is Life’s invitation?
Could it be time to grab hold of what was given and reclaim all that is Mine and Me and IS for Me?
And to turn around with new eyes and scoop back into my arms what was lost, neglected, unappreciated, unacknowledged and misgiven. Bring it all back into the reign of your own kingdom of love. Re-align right relationship with your beloved Life.
This is your stage; This is your story.
You are not so small as you think, for Life’s magnificence and glory still holds You, encouraging You, to take your place and through the consciousness that IS, immortalize this being, magnify, illuminate and KNOW that You Are quite something!
Life resounds with joy when we get it! The cosmos shakes and the planets sing and a new tone is heard throughout the universe. It’s the sound of awakening! The dawn chorus throughout infinite space as the celebrations arise from the simple yet profound act of One being, a simply being of mortal matter, of clay and mud and gas and air, claims his or her sovereignty as One who Matters. AS One to whom this gift has been bestowed. AS One who wakes up and grabs the hand of life and says YES! I see you, I hear you, I feel you, I am You, I love you too! and all that has been done in lack, ignorance and joylessness can be undone, the clocks turned back, the doors unlocked, and the impossible made possible, Because we KNOW NOW that we are beyond the limits of our forefather’s thinking as we inface, interact and get into relationship with the life that aminates our ME.
Don’t fritter you life away like autumn leaves. Do not let yourself slowly, painfully decay because you can’t handle the responsibility to LOVE back what has been given to you. You are the master. You are the commander. You are the One who can write your own script and create a new future that’s never been seen before. You are the One who can fall back in love with the LIfe that does all that she can, serving you impeccably, to simply be here and exist, and You are the One who can reunite the bonds of love and mend all time, everywhere.
