Change through Action

Art by Christina Mrozik

I think we are all in agreement to say that the year 2016 has been pretty tough on everybody.  Not that the previous years have been easier either, but for some reason, the collective is more aware than ever of the transformational energy that is all around us.

This change, however, must start here, with you, with me, individually.  The whole benefits from the one, and the work must be done at this level of simple nature, of single choices.  The choice to be integral and not exclusive.  The choice to be present and not distant.  The choice to do the hard work and not expect others to do it for us.  The choice to take responsibility for own actions, and learn from them.  We are all in this together, but we are also in our own single journeys.

I am one to humbly come forward and accept my faults.  I have made assumptions,  been misinformed, and have had to pause and closely examine my thought  processes.  Because I’ve been wrong… about a lot of things.  As I go forward into the new year, I am committed to transformation, to evolution, and I am in the process of finding my own voice.

My first stop, my most simple, natural observation, goes to my physical state.  My body, the capsule that holds my soul and grounds me into my life experience, is calling me.  Softly and painfully, it is grabbing my attention.  It is saying,

“Hey, let’s make a truce. I don’t want to fight with you anymore.”  

“I don’t want to fight with you, either.” I murmur with a sigh. ” I want to love you.”

This is my starting point.

As you may already know (if you’ve been reading before this post), I just turned 40, and that was a big thing in my own little world.  This birthday showed me a precise point in space and time, and I noticed it.  It showed me how far I’ve come, and how much still needs to be done.  My body takes presence, it fills my entire consciousness, and I am listening.

I hope you are finding your own crumblings, and you are following your own track.  For me, I am at crossroads, and I am changing mental paths.

Go in peace, seeker.  Meet you in the conversation.
