Lessons Learned?


We walk through this life in concrete belief that everything in this world is Source, God, Spirit, Creator, Universe, whatever you want to call it.  Yet conveniently forget the fact that we were also blessed with the gift of Free Will.  Almost as though, when the laws of the universe tip the scales to the other end of the spectrum, we happen to forget the past choices that led us to this place…..hear me out….

From my personal perspective, yes, everything in this world is Source.  Yes, we have lessons to learn, and are provided the opportunities to learn these lessons via divinely placed speed bumps along the path.  Yes, that is what each of these experiences are supposed to be utilized for.  Some even believe that we choose what we need to experience before we enter this lifetime, in an effort for our souls to evolve.  But what if we are only continuing to need these experiences because we never fully learned them in times (or lifetimes) past?

What if we only continue to experience these lessons, because we never fully learn what they are placed there for?  Therefore, passing the mentalities, mindsets, beliefs, lifestyles and behaviors on to generation after generation, including the burden of our behaviors and the task of learning?  What if…we took responsibility for our free will and choices?  What if we didn’t pass on the task from generations and lifetimes?  Is all that is happening a passing on of our fruitless attempts to truly embrace the growth, wisdom and love that Source is so desperately trying to remind us of?

There’s a brand new generation being born right now.  What are we going to pass on to them?  What can we learn that will eliminate being passed on?  What if we dropped what we were doing, and created a foundation for these children that was built on the solid bricks of unconditional love, oneness, compassion, cooperation, wisdom, authenticity, acceptance and humility?  Would they miss out on the richness and depth of a full and beautiful existence?  Would this be the price of relieving them of the burden of experiencing homelessness, abuse, bullying?  Or would they grow in the light of Creator that we spend our entire lives reaching for and embodying?  I’ll give you a hint….we don’t know….

We don’t know because we have never accomplished this feat, ever, in modern human history.  Personally, I’d really, really, really love to find out.

Love and light sent your way today and always,

I’m Sorry….

“I’m sorry.”

Two little words that hold the capacity to allow healing and rising of self and others.  Words that might not ever be heard from the source of the wound, but will be heard from the source of divine love and light.  Words that most likely will be heard from fellow travelers if we have the courage to share our stories.  Words that must also be heard from Self.  They’re just words, but oh the power that they hold.  But what do they truly mean?

Pain and suffering have run rampant throughout our existence on every level of society.  Fear controls and dictates every move that we make, and hatred and power are the byproducts in an ever separated humanity.  It’s a never ending cycle that plays out in each person’s story line.  Running through our lives causing waves of destruction attempting to rid ourselves of this darkness that we refuse to face or are even aware exists within us.  Not one of us is innocent in this process.  How many of us have consciously or unconsciously passed on our even slightest dislike for a different race, gender, sexual orientation, class, opinion or religion?  How many of us have passed on our terrified views of humanity to the next generation?  How many of us have emotionally destroyed other human beings in an attempt to feel better about ourselves?  To get a promotion?  To “protect” ourselves and loved ones?  How many of us have turned a blind eye to the suffering of another?  Sought power by stealing from another in brutal attacks?

A perpetual cycle of trauma, fear, and reaction of generation after generation has escalated to monstrous levels.  A never ending quest for power, security, separation, status ,and safety, all in vein attempts to achieve what we don’t even realize we are after.  Love and peace.  Isn’t that all that we really want?  Unconditional Love and uninterrupted peace?  When will the cycle end?  No single one of us can stop the onslaught of humanity’s suffering.  But we can create an environment for divine healing and guidance to move towards love and light.

When I say I’m sorry, what I mean is, when I was a source of trauma, I acknowledge the pain and suffering that I caused and I take full responsibility for my actions.  I feel what my actions made you feel and I want my actions to cause your being to experience love and peace instead.  I will take whatever steps must be taken to rectify what I have done.  When I was the victim of trauma, I acknowledge what actions of mine brought me to this space, and I take full responsibility for each one.  I set an intention of utilizing this experience as a catalyst for growth towards my higher self and rising in love and light with wisdom gained.  These are important steps towards lighting up our darkness and wrapping it in our unconditional love.

However, what we experience on an even deeper level is the pain and suffering passed on from generations long gone.  Or trauma experienced in situations beyond our control or responsibility.  The child who survived abuse at the hands of a loved one.  The race or gender that experienced oppression and violence for centuries.  The deep roots of destruction to humanity as a one that can no longer be rectified by the source itself.  The escalation from the beginning of our existence is not something that can be mended easily.  We could sit and point fingers, shifting blame here and there.  But there’s no healing in that game.  So let me begin by saying, I’m sorry….

I’m sorry for all of it.  From the beginning of mankind, to the present moment.  I acknowledge all of it.  The pain, the suffering, the trauma, and the oppression.  The hatred, the disgust, the abuse, and the forced powerlessness.  The torture, the control, the fear, the manipulation, the dishonesty,  and the withholding of your basic human rights and resources.  And for every last life taken by the hand of the darkness.  It was real, and not one of us are crazy.  These experiences did, and continue to, take place and they leave their mark on humanity.  I make space for you to feel every last emotion that you feel.  I send you unconditional love while you heal.  We will grieve together, we will love together, we will heal and learn together.  Then we will rise.  We will rise together towards oneness and unity.  Towards unconditional love for all, and oneness.  We will drown the darkness in our radiating light and we just might finally find peace.

So please sit, and tell me all about it.  And if you can’t think of the words, we will be still and silent, and just allow love to enter our space.

Always sending shockwaves of love your way,

We began this journey of enlightenment, more than likely with a moment of destruction that, internally felt like an explosion that rivals the blast of volcanic eruption.  It burned, it destroyed, it melted, and it consumed.  All the dense egoic fortress that shielded our inner being from the harsh external elements was now a pile of unrecognizable rubble at our feet.  But that was the whole point wasn’t it?

When we sat in our pain and suffering, we faced a crossroads that held two paths. To live, or die, both figuratively and perhaps even literally.  We’re still standing in our space today because we set an intention to rise from the ashes and the unexpected result was that we were consumed with a light found only in the space within where Source resides.  Powerful, radiating, illuminating, and consuming unconditional love.

Then suddenly, wisdom and clarity enter our consciousness and suffering ceases to exist.  Pain is lifted and it becomes undeniably clear that our destruction was the birthing process for our Higher Self.  We see the process for exactly what it is and become the most humbled and willing student of spirit.  Purpose consumes and we root our existence in service to creation.

There are no words to intellectualize the awakening of soul.  It cannot be described in verbal illustration, there are no words powerful enough to communicate.  It cannot be listed step by step for our sleeping minds to understand.  Each individual’s path is unique and cannot be followed.  It must be walked, step by step, in unwavering intention to climb higher and higher towards love and service.

It’s quite breathtaking if you think about it.  That all along, there was this glorious being of light within, bouncing and beaming just waiting for the opportunity to burst through the darkness and serve as a beacon on the journey home.

Love and light your way today and always,
