When distance feels very near
very near feels internal
internal feels eternal
eternal feels external
and external feels distant…

“Those who know do not speak, those who speak do not know”. These words were written thousands of years ago by the Lao Tzu author of the Tao Te Ching.  “Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth” was written by Bob Dylan some 4000 years and, in a round-a-bout way, echoing Tzu’s sentiments. One might think I would end this article right here rather than making clear just how little I know (ha! ha!) but I’m a tad stubborn and not overly concerned about what others may think of me. After all, what other people think of me is really none of my business. Tzu’s quote you might think elitist, esoteric or even contradictory and it may be seen as such but I believe it depends or one’s perspective. Our spiritual evolution is a personal event; no one can do it for us any more than we can do it for someone else. We cannot teach them how to evolve but we can guide them; we can be a sounding board when needed. But we are not their leaders nor their teachers a fact most of us forget as our egos get involved under the guise of ‘helping’; which is when the above quote comes into play. We can, at most, be each other’s guides allowing each other all the freedom required to learn at each one’s individual pace. Another way to express this is to say we grant each other the freedom to live in the moment without the pressure of time.

At this moment, less than a month away from Dec. 21, 2012, the world is polarized by the significance, or lack thereof, of this date. Is it the end of the world, the Ascension, both or nothing at all – just another day? Again, it depends on one’s perspective. For me its significance is tied to the Ascension and the spiritual evolution of both my soul and the universe where I find myself. There is a lot of over-thinking happening. It runs the gamut from having to ascend on a certain date, to not knowing when the ascension will happen, or if at all. Can anyone ascend or do you have to have your Merkaba fired up? Is a male and female way to do this? I could go on, but really the most important guidance I can give you is to be in your heart.  When you are in your heart,  you are connected with unity consciousness and with your soul. You will then know your soul’s plan for this point in its evolution, which again will be an individual event. I am entering the Ascension with a vision in my heart of a unified world where Love, not fear, is the prime motivator and all life lives in mutual respect with all other life. This is the next step in our journey and I am excited both to take that step and to discover who has taken it with me.
