Courage: The Time is Now

This is a call to all Lightworkers, Raw Foodies, Conscious Eaters, Natural Medicine Lovers, Healers, Mystics, Artists, Inventors, Uplifters, Green Witches, Faery Lovers, and Freedom Fighters:

There has never been a better time than right now to reveal your inner magnificence to the world. If you have felt oppressed, ignored, or misunderstood, this is your chance to prove yourself. This is your chance to celebrate. Now is the time to let all that repressed beauty, wackiness and enthusiasm explode from within your heart and mind. Now is the time to get creative. To love yourself. AND your neighbor. Now is the time to share the best you’ve got. As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

As Marianne Williamson puts it:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Let’s see some of that power! Let’s see how big we can grow.

Occupy Wall Street has grown to Occupying other cities. The media continues to block most of what’s happening there, but that doesn’t make it go away. People are waking up all over the place, realizing they have inherent rights to prosperity, joy, peace and freedom. People have had enough of the illusion of being slaves. Earth is a free will planet. Let freedom ring.

Let freedom ring and sing like a Tibetan bowl whose sounds expand upon each other, creating a vortex of transformation. Let freedom wash over this country and this Earth. Let the golden light flow into and around every living creature and every created thing. Let the words “as above so below” permeate our minds and manifest miraculous things in our reality.

Let “following our bliss” become the norm, not the exception. Jesus said, “The kingdom of god is within you.” And you. And you. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, and I have one, too. I dream of a life so full of joy and abundance for everyone that people realize they really can do, be, have and create everything they ever loved or would love to love. Maybe it’s the faery in me, but if I could use my magic wand and sprinkle pixie dust across the universe, I would scatter happiness far and wide. I would join the cosmic giggle and the music of the spheres and dance and sing in harmony with the Universe.

We can do this now. Even in the face of seemingly extreme obstacles. I was blessed to attend the Deva Premal, Miten and Manose concert in Madison, WI last night. Deva echoed my thoughts about “negative energy” when introducing the song, “Narasimha,” which offers protection from all obstacles, doubters, and oppressors. While Deva Premal does not focus on negative or dark energy, she recognizes the challenges of those following an alternative path. She explained that Narasimha is a fierce warrior who fights against tyranny. If you read the myth linked here, I suspect you’ll recognize some parallels to our world of BigBanks, BigPharma, mainstream media and rogue governments. The sweet melody reminds us that strength can arrive in the form of Grace, rather than bullying:

We can continue to focus on “all the good stuff” and let the Universe sort out the details. We can have courage through our love. I will leave you with another Deva Premal song from last night’s concert. Tumare Darshan expresses overwhelming gratitude for all that is. As Meister Eckhart assures us, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” We are the ones we have been waiting for, and what we have been waiting for already is. We just need to recognize and love it into our experience. I hope this song evokes as much joy in you as it does in me.
