This past weekend the world witnessed a chapter reflecting a most extreme contrast. We celebrated the Royal Wedding on Friday, and then heard on Sunday night that Osama Bin Laden had been located and killed. It is hard to wrap our heads (let alone our hearts) around two such discrepant successive intense events of global significance. This is what is meant by the term “contrast,” and this is the challenge of precisely this time in human history — the envelope called The Shift.
Our community is called “Enlightened Life Lovers” and our intention is to stay heart-centered. My invitation is simple, but not easy. I invite each of you, as well as myself, to embrace both extremes of this current contrast with love (instead of fear), with compassion (instead of judgement), and with both hope + faith. Have faith that all that unfolds invites us to a higher order of ourselves as heart-centered human beings. Hold hope for the day when lines will not need to be drawn, swords will rust in their sheaths, and we truly will understand that there is no “other” but that we are all One.
This is the time to choose wisely how and where we spend out time, talents and treasures. This is the time to sharpen our awareness and invite Enlightenment in every aspect of our lives. Shine your light so that we may all better find our way to the Divine truth of our Being.
Live in as much love as possible, and let in joy at every turn. Meet “contrast” in that field Rumi invites us to — “Out beyond all wrong doing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” For surely this will make the load lighter, the light brighter, and the journey more joyful. You are blessed with a wonderful community — our tribe of Enlightened Life Lovers. Connect often with compassion and support.
