August was an interesting combination of both Fast Track and Waiting Room energies. It felt as if we were zooming ahead on the Fast Track, yet at the same time, nothing outwardly appeared to be happening. There was a strong feeling of expectancy -- that something immensely life-changing was going to occur at any moment. Then the dam broke and the Tsunamis of Change burst forth with a mighty roar!
A series of breakdowns, quickly followed by Quantum Breakthroughs, came crashing upon the shores of our lives.
Our Perfect Storms returned, but this time they manifested on a whole new level of concentrated intensity. Even though we were in the midst of a thorough clearing away of the old and expired, it felt like we were being sand-blasted into becoming even truer True Ones. Layer after layer after layer was scoured off of us.
The super concentrated intensity of our Perfect Storms was due to the addition of new components that created an extremely rare alignment of previously unrelated elements. Our Perfect Storms transformed into Major Intersections of Right Time - Right Place. This was like a double X. When the double X activated, our Perfect Storms became Quantum Breakthroughs! And the larger the Perfect Storm, the bigger the Quantum Breakthrough.
These Quantum Breakthroughs will continue throughout the year. The size of each breakthrough is directly connected with the scale of our emergence as a True One. If we allow ourselves to be constantly distracted from what is Real and True, we won't be able to see the melons that are coming to us. If we are still trying to hold onto the past, our hands will be too full to receive the melons. But if we are standing strong as a True One with our hands open in readiness to embrace the New, then we will be free to catch melon after melon after melon.
September's Quantum Breakthroughs are pushing us out of our old landscapes and bringing us closer to our New Landscapes. Each time that we experience a Quantum Breakthrough, an entirely new sector of the New Map is revealed. Each time this happens, it gives us a whole new list of things to do. Whenever a Quantum Breakthrough occurs, our priorities must be immediately reordered. Numerous new tasks and activities appear and previously invisible layers of things to release are made visible. We suddenly start doing things that we never thought we would do. When old emotions and responses come up, we now know that they aren't real, and immediately push them aside for greater truths and new ways of doing things.
Resisting change is a waste of energy. This is a Year of Massive Change in a Decade of even larger Massive Change. Change is here, right at our doorstep, and it's not going to go away. Even if we try to stay in our same old situations, our situations will not remain the same....
In Christchurch, New Zealand a few nights ago, people went to sleep in their homes, not knowing that by morning their entire environment would be changed. Some of them went to bed with smiles on their faces, some were angry, some tired, some sad, perhaps some were drunk.... all of them expecting their world to be the same when they woke up. And then in the early morning came the earthquake....
There is no way to avoid change. Change is coming to us, whether we like it or not. Very little will be untouched by the immense change of this Time of Completion. This is in-depth and penetrating change that is astoundingly thorough. And that's just how it is. So we might as well embrace change and be grateful that it is breaking up the old stuck patterns and bringing us gifts of Newness and Trueness.
MAKING THE LEAP
As we prepare to depart our old landscape behind to travel into the Unknown, this is when we start seeing the beauty of the old landscape that we are now leaving. It suddenly feels very poignant to leave the old behind. Although we know that our New Life is full of wondrous surprises, we feel occasional pangs of sadness at what we are leaving behind. This happens even when we are very clear that we really don't want to remain in our old lives.
From a deep level of knowingness, we are greatly excited about our New Lives; but we also feel tremendous uncertainty about them. This is because we still don't have all the information about our New Lives that we feel we need. There are too many unknown factors to put us at ease.
Our uncertainty causes another layer of doubts to rise to the surface. "Are we going to the right place?" "Will we like it?" "Will we be welcomed when we arrive there?" "How will we support ourselves in our New Landscape?" "Will we find True Ones there?" "Can we bring our cat?"
We longingly look back at the familiar territory of our old landscape and notice that all the bridges behind us are burning. The bridge under our feet is also on fire. There is nowhere to go, but into the Unknown. And since the burning bridge that we are standing on is getting very hot, we better hurry up.
I recently had a dream where I was climbing on the side of a steep wall of a hotel in Bali. Far below me was sand. I wanted so much to get off this wall, but I couldn't remember how to go backwards to where I had begun. I was afraid to jump because it was too far down, so I decided to try to climb to the top of the wall. When I finally reached the edge of the top of the wall, there was nothing to pull myself up with. I was just dangling over the edge. I called for help and finally two hotel security men came. I thought that they would simply pull me up over the top, but instead they pulled out a mouse and pushed it towards my face. I was so shocked that I jerked backwards and let go of the wall, falling about twenty feet down to the soft sand. I landed gently without injury and realized that the message of my dream was to simply let go and leap. And that ALL WOULD BE WELL.
We all need to leap right now. Leap after leap after leap. Yes, we don't have all the detailed information that we think we need before we do it. We don't have safety nets in place. And that's just how it is. We simply need to leap, no matter what.
During this intense time of changing paradigms, we are constantly being bombarded with a multitude of diverse energies coming from multiple directions. There is so much to do, most of them unrelated tasks. Often there is simply too much input coming at us.
With these heightened conditions, it's no surprise that many people's energies are being pulled all over the place right now. It's very easy to get overwhelmed and slip into the swamp of inertia. Or to get pulled into numerous distractions and lose focus on what is important. For me, I seem to have a day of extreme focus and effectiveness, followed by a day on the edge of overwhelm, in which my mind just doesn't function with its usual clarity. On these days, I keep my mental tasks to a minimum and turn my attention to my long list of physical ones, which are much easier to do. Much of this is happening for the purpose of integration.
What is required in order not to get overwhelmed or distracted is Focused Intent using an expanded focus. From the stance of a True One, focus on the vaster picture of what is real, not on the profusion of elements that are clamoring for your attention.
One of the basic rules of the old duality-based time management principle is to identify the 20% of the most important tasks in front of you and to spend 80% of your time doing them. That's very logical and a good idea in the old template, but.... it simply is no longer possible. The Surf is too wild and unpredictable. It is full of Tsunamis of Change.
When surfing, we used to ride the prevailing waves, but this no longer works since everything has become super multi-dimensional. If we use our expanded Focused Intent, we can align ourselves with the surging current of Right Time - Right Place that emanates from the expanded HERE and NOW. This is how we can stay balanced and do what needs to be done.
SAILING INTO THE UNKNOWN
Some of us feel as if our Blank Canvas has been washed away, along with all our paints and brushes. Our Wildest Dreams have dissolved into dust. Our elusive One True Loves have disappeared into the Invisible. Our ideas of what we would like in our New Life have been swept out to sea. All our old definitions are gone. Our footprints in the sand behind us that contained the memories of our journey so far have all been erased.
Everything is new and unformed. Undefined. Wide open. Ultra blank.
But still we know that everything we need in our New Lives will be there waiting for us. All we can do now is to be a True One and put our attention on removing ourselves from the old and expired. Everything is moving forward rapidly, yet we are still sailing in the Sea of Uncertainty.
The reason that this is happening is that we are in the midst of a mega MUA, the beginning of a major new cycle. Some of us knew this, but we didn't realize the full scope of the MUA that we are in. We didn't know that it would wash away so thoroughly all that had been. That it would irrevocably alter the fabric of all that we have known.
Now it's like we are traveling in a small canoe over a series of wild Rapids of Change. We are frantically rowing to the left, rowing to the right, watching out for sharp rocks in our path. There is no time for calmly looking around to see the details of where we are or for stopping to enjoy a picnic lunch; instead we need to be on full alert, ready to leap into action or change direction at a second's notice.
There is so much intensity and so much action that sometimes we think that we've reached our limits and can't take any more. That's when we hear a loud roar coming ever closer. We are approaching the top of a huge waterfall. There is no time to avoid it. We drop over the edge. Falling - falling - falling.
And there is our New Life in all its beauty.
