Greetings, Fellow Traveler through these Days at the End of Time as We’ve Known It…

I could not readily describe what I thought we’d be feeling and living through by now, but what IS feels different than that which I had imagined.  How about you?  Stop for a moment and recall what you hoped or believed Now would feel like, and compare that to what Now IS for you, today.  One change or shift I recognize or have moved into is a convergence of all (well, most) of the widely-varying threads of attention on things out there, in the world of Man, into a greater sense of  Here in the Now moment.  All my accustomed distractions seem to have collapsed into ‘just now,’ and since I have chosen to live a pretty sparse, disconnected lifestyle, my Now feels pretty spare, ascetic, empty, clean, and eternal.  Cool!  Gulp!

Did the Now suddenly begin to feel like Eden, Paradise in a Golden Age?  That was wishful or magical thinking admittedly, but I feel now how that notion had lodged in my consciousness over the past year or so.  And No, it doesn’t feel that paradisical, not yet.  I have come to know that this is the part we each are responsible for, ourselves – the creation of what we desire, anything with which we want to populate our Golden Age.  Don’t enjoy your job?  Then it will continue to be exactly what you have felt it is – no rescue from the Universe, not yet at least.  Don’t like your partner?  They are still across the table from you every meal, doing the same tired things.  No rescue there, either.

Right here, right now, in my world, everything has nearly come to a halt – the sameness risks becoming numbing!  Yet from this fertile ground I get to grow whatever strikes my heart’s fancy – and I am beginning to do so.  Clearing pictures off the walls, throwing out stacks of hard copies (squirreled away all over the place!) of emails, channeled transcripts, new moon readings, and event descriptions.  We’ve now Been There and Done That, and there isn’t any need to keep a record of it; that lives in our hearts & minds.  Clear away the clutter – yes, even more of it – and become Pure Space.  The memory of how human skin that’s been burned heals as smooth, stretched-tight “scar tissue” comes to mind – it seems so different that it seems to be ugly or wrong, but it is only different, unfamiliar.  The Now feels kind of like that to me… wiped smooth and free of what we had become accustomed to, these now are revealed as the distractions and time-wasters they have been, and we are invited to peek into a deeper, more revealing kind of perception and self-organization.

Words don’t capture it, and that’s an integral aspect of the shift – our left-brain, rational, time-ordered and categorical thought systems don’t embrace the shifts we’re living through – this Now is the domain of the right-brain: intuitive, free & disconnected, every-moment-is-a-new-event.  Ha!  We’ve all become more Attention-Deficit-Disordered compared to the old paradigm!  My neighbor Jonathan sensed that all these ADHD/ADD kids were introducing our evolutionary future, and apparently he was right!  When we ‘lose’ our rhythm and no longer march to accustomed patterns… then what?  We can feel lost, or forgotten, or left behind – but no one has left us, we are all still milling around here together, in the same soup of the Now.  Its very interesting – this is the Time of No Time that was prophesied, and I am grateful for all the early warnings, because without them, I would likely feel cast adrift and tempted to fear – but instead, I feel free and abundantly blessed – and joyous!!

Once again, I remember the prophetic scene in Carl Sagan’s Contact when the Traveler releases herself from the constricting hard-case seat & stiffness (to reach for a ‘worthless’ Cracker Jack toy, a gift from a brief lover), and as she rests in pure freedom & peace, her experience is of moving through vast, mind-blowing new realms of light and life; while behind her, the attached chair shakes violently until it crashes apart, revealed as the artifact of a fear-limited mindset.  She forgets about it utterly, her attention turned to beauty, wonder & grace.  I imagine that our near-future will be like that…

Exercise your sovereignty amidst the turmoil of the Old and the fresh unformedness of the New – elect to choose your future, and then enter it and embrace it with gusto, Friends & Neighbors of Planet Earth.  The Manifestos have brought us to this moment, but each new Now is ours to make of what we will.  May you & I together create more – beautifully, beneficially, peacefully –  than we ever dared dream was possible!!  As my friend Shawn Galloway signs: “I Choose Love!”  I am so pleased to be living in These Times!!  Namaste…
