2020 Vision for a New Year and a New Decade

Welcome to life in a new world now being born – as an old world is dying! We’re no longer in linear time – we’re now in something flowing in a double spiral – with the momentum of past actions in our world intertwining with waves of incoming energy.

There is good news: we’ve moved into a direct alignment with the flowing energy of the life affirming love of life for life, emanating from the central spiraling vortex at the heart of Creation.

But also, now – right now – we’re seeing something that is undeniably true:

Life on our planet is in a state of emergency.

It’s essential that we see the beauty of the unique gifts that each of us brings to life.

But it is just as important that we also clearly see the flaming lit distorted faces of the insane aberrant predators who have for their profit brought our planet to this desperate moment of life on earth in crisis.

We’re at a tipping point.

We’re seeing the consequences of this ruthless exploitation of life: ecosystem collapse, vast toxic waste sites, ocean acidification, global warming with melting ice caps and weather patterns becoming erratic with catastrophic storms and flooding, devastating wild fires, poisoned collapsing agriculture and food systems, rapidly diminishing bee and insect populations, toxic ground water from fracking and industrial waste, toxic air, increasing levels of distress and disease happening to all life forms – trees, creatures, us…all happening in the context of unrelenting warfare devastating the lives of hundreds of millions of human beings.

And yet, here in the midst of this catastrophe is a gift being offered to us of something mysteriously simple:

This emergency is calling us to emerge!

From deep within the primal flow of life itself comes this message:

YES!

Yes! There is a way for us to live loving, caring, and connected lives – lives worth celebrating!

There is a place within you that is loving, uncompromised, fierce, agile, creative, and profoundly resourceful. Turn to it!

Ready or not – healed or not – cleaned up or not – awakened or not – enlightened or not – the time for the emergence of our gifts is here!

Let’s share the simplest of truths:

We are light based beings! Connect to the light within you!

Radical self-care is the foundation for our capacity to care for life. We can only care for life to the extent that we have cared for ourselves. Benign self-neglect combined with pain-numbing addictions and distractions are no longer an option.

Everything is possible in the present moment. Our unique essential gifts to life become present when we do! Let us become inclusive of the best of every modality, allowing our differences to make us all more creative.

You are not alone – we’re all in this together! We gather in community to become stronger and more resourceful together.

In the face of the madness we are witnessing, we share love.

In the face of exploitation and abuse, we are ferocious in our concern and care for the well being of life.

In the face of destruction, we share the mysterious deep peace that brings us all together. There is no “us” and “them.” But there is an absolute “no more!”

At every opportunity, when you gather with family, friends, and community, create a gentle living ceremony. Include everyone – present and not present, seen and not seen. And find a way to allow a moment of quiet receptivity to be shared.

In this deep silence we find the Light that is our true nature.

Our response to our global emergency is for each of us to emerge as the essential gift that we are!

With love and feral blessings for 2020.
