And so this creative territory, something of an incubatory period: own it, know it’s potential because you do. Trust it; truly utilize it—have no relationship to doubt, ever really, but especially as it presages Creative Liberation. Yet at the same time, in the comforts of familiarity, you must always recall growth is new and uncomfortable—so don’t seek comfort, don’t seek the qualities that you’ve gained from before. As the new you, create Today. Otherwise, yourself you deceive. Let go of the feeling. It’s time for us to leave the comfort zone—time to create something new.
The drive towards perfection has permeated our relationship to the experience of life. Have we forgotten, or ever really known, that all of this is only true upon mutual agreement? As the creator you are free to introduce any element to the story, and all of your creations are subject to judgement. Yet fear of judgement is no reason to halt or slow the process—it is the nature of this stage of manifestation’s perspective. We fear change because of its unknown qualities. Because in our familiarity with today we face a loss of navigation, if we change the status quo for tomorrow. As a society we have grown comfortable with a way of knowing life, and the kind of changes we need to make will require us to let most of that go and simply be with the uncertainty… the imperfection of learning to walk again.
In authentic truth and judgement there is pure uncertainty. Even at the very edges of the explosion that is continually giving birth to life, there exists no glance of future, only imagination. The explosion is the birth of time, and all else that follows. The only moment, for sure, is happening right now. Perfection is Nirvana. Yet if life is never-ending, Nirvana is limited only to our relationship to life—but life itself will always be imperfect. Embrace this, and embrace change.
Life is a messy, complex, and chaotic process. We don’t know what we got, ‘til we get it. That said, correcting a path that began hundreds of years ago—a path that has disenchanted people for as long as its been going… this will take time. For all we know, OWS is just the beginning of some kind of larger awakening at the level of culture. The fact that OWS went viral in our country, and then went global, is nothing to blink an eye at. How beautiful it was to see the diversity of individuals—a congregation that obliterated the meaning of coming together based on majority and minority, ethnicity, sex or orientation. Onward…
