The End Result is the Beginning
Lots of changes happened these last 12 months. The reason that this is being written in this blog rather than my teaching blog is simple – of course, it is always nice to have more readers for that blog, but more, because somehow, this morning, I am guided by Spirit, by the Mother Goddess, to be here, in The Ghetto Allegory, reminding you all, including myself, that 2014 is on its way out, that it was a very harsh year that contained within it those moments which were SO big and so very life changing.
The things that happened to you, for you, with you there, were all moments which could easily be thought as anything, with any kind of energy that any one of us could put into anything at all, but the bottom line is that, we learned, and more, in many more ways than only one, we completed lots of karmic circles.
When you decide to look back at your 2014, and you see there the adversities you survived, and you look back and think to yourself how you never believed for a moment that you would make it out alive, with your soul intact, your heart not more broken, your life not shattered… and here you are, in all of your reigning, insanely bright and beautiful glory. Here you stand, Alone, in your Stand Alone manner, shining brightly, like a diamond who’s been roughed from the coal it once was housed in.
You may choose, if you like, to remain back there, in that pain, in the things that broke you, even though only for a moment, and you may choose, if you like, to bother yourself with all those things that you cannot change, the things which have not been karmically resolved, or, you may choose to see those things in a very different manner. It is, will be, will never not be, your choice.
There are a great many things that we who “work in the weird” must deal with that others who do not choose to follow the path of healing, light, of genuine Aloha, cannot do – not for any other reason than that it is not theirs to deal with, at least not on their own. It is the reason for the cards, the psychic hits at just the right moment, the visits from beyond the veil of consciousness that take us quite by surprise, and the love which, most of all, is the very ingredient which into the stew of life we must add. This is our job, our place and our work in the world – to be the beacon, the light which, when there seems no other way, we hold for others, for no other reason than that they will find their way home, no matter where that may be, within them, for them.
Please, do not look back upon 2014 as “the worst year ever,” and instead, see it as having “been in the cards” for many, many of us, even and especially those of us whose work in this crazy, and at times, collectively livid, place called Home – Mother Earth, deals with things not visible to the physical eyes, not discernible to the physical human ears, not real to those whose lives are firmly wrapped around the tangible nature of Life.
See this past year not as the thing that hindered you, but gave you something to mold and gave you something to call yours and gave you the reminder that you are here for a purpose, here on a mission with others who, like you, carry a similar energy, a similar reason for being, even if you really do not know what that reason is outside of the one thing that makes not only the world go round, but actually bathes us in the light of Aloha from our ‘Aumakua, as well as The Mother Goddess.
To anyone reading this, recall those times which broke your heart, rendering you shattered, leaving you breathless, wanting for better, and know now that it was all with a Divine Purpose. Know now that the pain you suffered was not without a good enough reason, and that even if you are not aware of that reason right at this moment, in time that reason will become readily apparent and available to you, and suddenly, the things you endured will make sense.
Remember that you were alive and breathing through it all, that no matter what you suffered, that the healing process is not an easy one, that it takes time to mend and heal the pieces of your tattered and worn Soul, and that when it seemed that no one was there to catch you, always there was Spirit, always there was the Love which you carried within you, not only for others, but unbeknownst to you, for yourself, as well.
Know that your Soul-Ache, that feeling of wanting for more was the more that you sought out, but was in the rough, waiting to be culled by you so that you alone would find there the treasure which was only meant for you.
Understand that in what seemed like the loneliest times of your life, you were not ever completely alone, that you were being made to be Stand Alone, in your own uniqueness, in the Power that can only come from within and is cut out of the rock called anger, chiseled by the blade of disparity, and later, was seen as the work of art that is now this version of You.
While it seems that we have all been living in the phrase “All good things must come to an end,” we must not ever forget that this also applies to things that hurt us, all the way down to the Bones of The Soul.
Please remember that even as these last twelve months may have had the energy to beat you down to what you thought was nothing, rising from the very ashes of what you were, is who you Are.
Who You Are is Gorgeous…
Many Blessings…Aloha … ROX
