Holiness is to be the truth of who you are. No matter the culture or the society or the expectations that collect around you. The truth of your person is behind your eyes and behind your heart. It is seen in the actions you take and the decisions you make.
It is seen in the eyes of your enemy and those of your loved ones. Your compassion, your humor, your respect, and the freedom you give to yourself and others in the experience of personal truth is the mirror of your soul.
By snow and soil and air and fire we walk inside the crucible of our love. We are tested and teased and honored. We are loved and loathed. We come through these tests to a place of crossing. To a precipice of our development as organic beings we look out across a chasm. And it is an endless gaping chasm. A dark void of unknown potential. And as we have come through all of the previous tests and experiences and learning here we stand at the brink of our existence wondering if this is the end. And we discover that yes, this is the end.
Here we await the guidance that comes as a crumbling of the earth beneath our feet and we cry out as we fall into that void of silent and ignorant rebirth. Innocent of our further horizons we land and we come to the realization that….
We are still here.
In the body it is still us as we were but now we are different as well. We have ended and begun a new. We have a new neural system. We have new skills and we have expanded upon the original temple of our divine expression. We have lit the flame and it flows within us like water and freezes like a burning ice.
We are rocked from within with hurricanes and twisting winds that torque us as they please. But we have learned to surrender and we fly with these transient breaths of air and we begin to understand that we are indeed holy. That we are as all creation is and that is holy. Just as we are a template for the breath of God to grow new beings we are in that station of grace upon grace. Life upon and within life. We are one and we are many and we are one and we are many and....
We are inside of this divine expression. We taste it and savor it and bless it and love it and we are grateful for every hardship and pain and love and experience that has brought us to this rare place. Rejoice in the crumbling of your reality. It too is many and one and many and one...It too is being molded for a divine expression through you!
So embrace your changes and your evolving state of grace and know that this is real! This is happening! Right now in you! – May the blessings of God upon all creation reflect in the person you are and that you are becoming!
