Some of you may wonder where I have been lately, two Wednesdays have passed with no word from the vortex…………perhaps the words were sucked into the bright tinselly realms of Christmas time and New Year! It can be a challenging time of year for many but Yuletide stress is not something I can really claim, both my family gatherings were full of food, laughter and generally good cheer all round.
No the truth is that I am experiencing a strong reluctance to spend any time at all in front of my computer. It’s a feeling in my body that gives no reason for this, a visceral response that completely bypasses the so-called reasoning brain. At the same time I feel strongly called to continue writing posts, feels like I am being pulled in two directions. So with the madness of the festive season I completely lost the plot and disappeared into the vortex of flashing lights and festive celebrations.
So am I back I hear you ask? The answer to that question is still under exploration as I attempt to navigate my way in what feels like a whole new chapter of my existence. I keep getting the sense of being on the brink of something huge and exciting, for myself but also for the larger community. These are end times that we are living in and there is a grand opportunity to create new stories for the new humanity that is being birthed at this time.
The trick is to be in the flow of energy and to be able to respond to the sudden changes that are a feature of this huge transition that humanity is attempting to go through. My mobile life as a house sitter is a wonderful preparation for living moment to moment, trusting that there will always be somewhere for my Beloved and I to call home. Trusting that we can make our way in a world that often seems inimical to the deeper spiritual waters where we love to swim and play.
So I will do my best to meet the commitment of one post per week and we shall see where this new energy leads. As I sit here writing this I am looking out at green fields and a large brown cow that is scratching itself on a post. And yet I am in a suburban house about five minutes walk into the heart of town, another beautiful home that we are most privileged to be able to live in for a time. The phrase that comes to mind is that things can only get better, also the title of a dancy pop song by a band I’ve never heard of: D:Ream. You may want to put on your dancing shoes and take a spin as you listen to this one, enjoy!
