The year that we are saying goodbye to has been extremely full on, there have been some huge shifts and changes and I’m not really thinking about the larger world, my focus has been with my inner world and with my immediate community. To me true change is about shifting consciousness and while I do assist people in that area with some of the work that I do, at the end of the day it is something we each have to take personal responsiblity for.
Perhaps that’s why I am heading off to the Woodford Folk Festival on my own to celebrate the eve of the new year, it feels absolutely perfect to be doing it this way, I am looking forward to what may unfold. Something is drawing me there, the pull is very strong and so I am following what some might consider a mad impulse. Most people seem to be more comfortable moving in groups and I have moved more and more into community myself this year, but the siren call of the hermit is still a powerful force within me.
I do need to be in that space on a regular basis in order to be centred and to restore my energy, I have been so busy in my wonderful community that I actually had to pull back a few weeks ago in order to come back to that place of quiet strength that the nourishment of solitude provides for me. A seemingly strange topic for what is considered by many to be the biggest party night of the year and perhaps my new year’s eve will end up being a big party, or maybe I will go home early.
I feel like a blank canvas waiting for inspiration and the not knowing is exciting, the womb of creation, the void from which all things arise, the quantum field that is quivering with possibilities………..
Bring it on……………..whatever may come I do welcome thee as I surrender to the flow of the life force.
Ohm Shanti Ohm.
