If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am someone who likes to take the time to allow an unfolding within myself before I give language to energy as language delineates, structures and gives meaning and should be used carefully. (no random shouting in this space, smiles) Which is why I haven't written about this earlier. And... here I am.
In the US we have been and are going through yet another intensity with the focal lens being police brutality against black people, within the larger framework of ongoing discrimination against African Americans in the US.
This touches close to home for many reasons. I live in Atlanta that has a large African American community, I live in a black neighborhood and most of the people in my 3-d world have skins that are more melanated than mine. And I've experienced my fair share of racism, especially after 9/11 when it would sometimes feel intolerable to be living in Amsterdam because of the way that I was being treated due to the color of my skin. It was one of the reasons that I left.
When I first read George Floyd's last words, it brought me to my knees (literally) as I sobbed my heart out. I believe that that was the only sane response that I could have had. And I believe that there is a higher intelligence at work. Always. That brutality, those words, at this time, filmed for the whole world to see were meant to pierce our hearts. Into an opening into ENOUGH!!!, into UNITY, into WE STAND FOR LOVE AND ONE RACE. WE STAND FOR BLACK LIVES MATTER. Whatever apathy and numbness stopped us from seeing the insanity was shattered in that moment.
There are so many layers of this conversation. Each important in its own right.
And if we step back we can start to see the divine orchestration at play.
I believe that all of the work that so many of us have done in the last years, decades, allowed and is allowing a consciousness shift where we can no longer treat each other with anything less than mutual respect and acknowledgment of each other's humanity and divinity. I believe that all of the work that we have done in consciousness to create a more beautiful world is creating this intensity of chaos as old paradigms shatter and we step into the birthing space of the new. Messy, painful, intense, challenging.
And I believe that there are other forces at play. The forces that allowed our ancestors to predict these times. The astrological forces that create a perfect alignment in the heavens so that the collective shadow can no longer be hidden. And the earth. As we stand on the precipice of the 6th mass extinction (Bruce Lipton talks about this) why would we think that the earth, a majestic sentient being in her own right, would not require us to change. Into a way of being that acknowledges, uplifts and celebrates ALL of LIFE. Why would we think that the sentiency and consciousness of LIFE itself would not put forces into play that necessitate a fundamental shift in consciousness for us to continue to live and thrive on this planet.
We are co-creating with LIFE and DEATH itself to ensure the ascendancy of this planet and every living creature upon it.
It is messy and hard and difficult at times.
And I know that we choose this, that we were born for this, that we are unfolding into our divinity so we can co-create a future that will take our breath away.
We are going to do the miraculous.
