The energies of 'A Mu'a have burst out into the world and are now making their presence felt on the physical. This will enable us to move forward. The Winds of Change are blowing mightily, sweeping away the old and expired and aligning us with our True Positions. Huge changes are coming into our lives. Some of these are completely unexpected and might be shocking when they first happen. But soon afterwards, we will be able to see their rightness. We are now entering a super Fast Track. Get ready to Zoom!! Many elements that were stuck or tethered into their old positions are now being set free.
When the waves of 'A Mu'a crash upon the shores of our lives, they often create patches of Choppy Surf. Choppy Surf is always erratic and unpredictable. It can slap us hard if we're not careful. Choppy Surf contains extremely mixed energy that is like the old three steps forwards, two steps back. When Choppy Surf is present, we need to be ultra alert and try to do things as smoothly as possible.
During our transition from the Library into the Forest, it's not that the Library disappears, but that the two worlds are greatly rearranged until they merge with each other, creating a totally new landscape. We are becoming increasingly familiar with this merged landscape. We now know that some of our books are located in the branches of a tree and that squirrels are storing their nuts in the library's pencil sharpeners. If we open a book and a bird flies out, it doesn't surprise us. We simply greet the bird. We are now inhabiting an off the map, mixed up world and this makes every day an adventure.
July feels like a blank canvas. It's not easy to see what is ahead. This makes some people frustrated and impatient. This Pregnant Emptiness makes them nervous, so they start frantically grabbing any paints they can find and throw them on their blank canvas. This is exactly what we should not do. We need to wait until the colors appear on our canvas, without trying to influence the outcome. We need to center ourselves in our Heart's Knowingness, trusting that what will appear will be perfect for us and that everything will manifest in its right timing.
If the changes that we most want don't appear to be happening in our lives, we don't need to become frustrated or bitter. The rearranging of our internal and external landscapes is extremely intricate, amazingly thorough and multi-dimensional. This process often utilizes a lot of our energy, sometimes leaving us little energy to cope with daily life.
At the same time, we are still carrying experiences and expectations from the old world that we know so well. They tell us that certain things should develop at a certain speed, but this isn't what is happening right now. Our newly rearranged, merging landscape of Library - Forest has a different time frame. Some things in our lives may feel very slowed down, but if we perceive the full magnitude of what is really going on, we realize that nothing is slow. It's all in Zoom-Mode. It's just moving so fast that it appears to be slow.
Let's say that we were on our way to do some simple errands. We have a shopping list for the supermarket in our hand and a stack of books that we are returning to the library in our other hand. To do this, we only need to go two blocks. While we are walking down the street on a journey that should only take us two minutes, we encounter construction areas with the irritating sounds of several jackhammers and huge clouds of dust. There are also several people to greet along the way. Next, we are pelted by a sudden hailstorm which appears out of the blue and rush to take cover. There is an unexpected student protest along the way that we must dodge, not to mention the herd of cows that is ushered through the streets.
"Gee, why is it taking so long to get to the supermarket?" "I should have been there by now; it normally only takes me two minutes." Well, these are not normal times, are they?
In this kind of situation, we can't focus on just one task. We also can't avoid anything in our path. All we can do is simply surf through it in as graceful manner as possible and try not to get pulled into distractions. We can't even hold onto our chosen priorities because our priorities are constantly shifting. It's more like trying to walk on wildly undulating ground during an earthquake, never knowing where the next crack in the ground will open up. Or when the next juicy Melon will land.
The profusion and sheer magnitude of what is going on can be overwhelming and confusing at times, or it can be exciting and awesome. It depends on our point of view and on how strongly we cling onto the Way Things Used To Be. This is the chaos that precedes birth. Some of us have a natural aptitude for navigating chaos, while others find it much more challenging. When we flow with the changes, we feel optimistic and that "Life is good." When we resist them, we are filled with bitterness and rage and think that "Life is tough." Much depends on our attitude and perceptions of what is going on.
We are now living off the map of the Known where the Unexpected is the New Normal. We may think that we are going to the supermarket and end up in a parade. Each day is an adventure into the Unknown. And that's perfectly OK. That's just how life is right now.
