This came through my journaling practice this morning. I thought I would share.
I am moving more and more towards stillness these days. Freeing myself from the external noise of the happenings of the world. Freeing myself from the to-dos that want to fill my days. There is constant pressure to protect me from the chaos of the world, to fight the oncoming changes that are inevitable. I know I am ready as I can be for whatever is going to unfold.
I sense what’s coming will be slow and steady. And, maybe in 18 months, I will look behind me and say WTF just happened? How did I not notice that all of this was unfolding? Was I too busy, too paralyzed, or simply complicit in the collective denial to do anything about it?
I have to trust that my soul knows what it is doing. I am here during this critical juncture of our world for a purpose. It is either as a witness or as a rock to lean on. I will remain steadfast in my truth. I may not see the big picture yet, but I trust something beautiful will be built from the wreckage.
My mantra these days is everything that does not align with my soul’s mission must fall away, even if that is the world as we know it.
