Ever since this year began, I have had the sense of being expecting something to happen, something to emerge that, in some way, has not been in my life before. With it, comes the recurrent question What is mine to do in this rising scenario?
Finding the answer has been elusive, in part maybe to the fact that whatever is supposed to arise has not done so. It feels, to a certain extent, as being ready for the race to begin, waiting for the starting shot to be fired, but being kept waiting with no further instructions to follow.
Now, if you look at this closely, there could be other issues or approaches that could help unravel this ambiguous foreboding.
On one hand, this could be a waiting time, a preparation time in which to find who I really am and what is it that I came do this time around on planet Earth. A time to gain the strength, stamina and capacity. A time to develop, regain, master the skills and capacities that will be required for the task.
On the other hand, expecting something to arise without assuming my own role in its emergence into reality could be limiting the possibilities of it arising or, at least, delaying its occurrence. It would be something like still considering change has to come from outside, independently of what I crave for, as if I the world “out there” and I “in here” meet occasionally and randomly, which we usually refer to in the Institute as ‘the world of separation’.
So how to know if it is simply a matter of waiting for things to come forth, or if there is something that needs to be foreseen, imagined, craved for or tended to at this moment in time. What if things HAVE changed and I have a word in this world’s reality?
Regardless of what approach you feel like considering in your own path, writing the Creation Exercises, both in the Craving and Observing modalities, can definitely bring you to a clear in the forest where light can help you discern what is yours to be and do in these matters.
This year is certainly one of changes and choices. Choosing to take the challenge of the 90-day project to write the Creation Exercises is one way of stepping into the arena and expressing to the Universe what the world we want would look like, would feel like.
Thanks for sharing with us the passion to envision a new world for humanity.
