Where is your joy? What have you done wrong? Why is everyone else
“sailing along” and you seem to be hitting one block after another?
Ah. This is a time of transition. In truth, one of the greatest
transitions ever on earth or other planets. Transition or change is
never as easy as is indicated in your history books.
The forefathers of the current United States had many doubts about
their direction and even the outcome. History paints a picture of their
knowing what to do and where to turn. Nothing could be further from the
truth. They merely moved in the direction that felt the least painful
emotionally, but not necessarily physically. They could have easily
capitulated to England’s demands. Their immediate lives would have been
more physically comfortable. Yet, their emotional needs precluded such a
direction. And so it is with you.
It would be easier for you to remain in a community, a relationship
or a job – than to move towards the transitions your heart is telling
you to make. But then, easier in the short-term does not always equate
to a long-term solution..and so it is with you now.
Oh not all of you. Some of you have already completed your major
adjustments. This particular piece is for those who remain in the throes
Let us use yet another analogy that might make your current
discomfort just a bit easier to understand. Those of you who have been
pregnant understand the discomfort of that state. The difference is that
you knew what the outcome would most likely be – a darling new addition
The same is not true for you now. You know what you feel like doing,
but not the reason why. You do not have a specific outcome in mind,
other than comfort and joy. When you are pregnant, you can laugh about
your weight gain or your need for pickles and ice cream – both
predictable indicators that you are indeed pregnant and all will be well
in less than nine months. But like the forefathers of the United
States, you currently have no end date in sight, nor do you understand
your inner cravings.
Are you crazy or merely following your heart? How do you know your
heart is correct? Most important of all, when will it all end?
We can give you no end date – each of you is moving at the pace that
is correct for you. Some of you have moved through the bulk of the
issues you wish to move through and feel light and airy. Others of you
are just starting your journey, and you feel as if your life is at an
end. It is.
The life you have known is no more. That is why you are moving
through your issues. And just as is true for any movement, any
direction, some of you are scout masters and others are pioneers. Both
of you are moving in the same direction, but not at the same time.
If you are in extreme pain right now, ask for help and you will connect with one or more of those who have gone before.
The scout masters completed their issues in a somewhat blank state.
They had no idea what was happening or why. They just knew they needed
to move in a specific direction – much like salmon swimming upstream.
Scout masters accepted that extremely courageous challenge before birth
so that you would have a path to follow.
If you are in tremendous pain now, ask for help and you will connect
with one or more of those who have gone before. Pioneers have always
followed the trails carved by scout masters. The same is true for you.
Open your thoughts and your being to those who can help you understand
your path and your overwhelming need to move forward. Perhaps your scout
master is a maintenance person, philosopher, school teacher or
political leader. It does not matter. Just ask for assistance and that
person or persons will enter your life.
You will know your scout master(s) by the joy they provide whenever you are in their presence or by the words they speak.
Simple. You are in pain. You are not alone. You are a pioneer, but
you have scout masters readily available to help you move through and
beyond your pain. This transition is not about individuals pushing
themselves to the very edge. It is about your society creating a new
world together – in joy.
Allow yourself to accept the help of your scout master(s). And then
allow yourself to know without a doubt that you are moving in the
correct direction for yourself and society. You may not have an infant
to display after your transition, but you most certainly will have
feelings of peace and joy. That is your end game. That is your
direction. And that is your need to move through your issues. So be it.
