See Dragonfly? There. Not There.

See Dragonfly? There. Not There.

Individually, within the canyons of our minds, we are constantly prodded to consider what is important and what is not…

In the wake of our most recent full moon, and from all cardinal points on Earth, our global community has observed the moon’s luminance in the aftermath and continued uncertainty of some of humanity’s darkest hours. Clearly this is a world of rapid transition. One moment all is well and functioning according to expectations. In the next fragment of time, a community of souls may be shaken to their bone and marrow either by war and politics or by natural disasters and the associated calamities.

See Lightning? There. Not There.

When the metaphoric barn burns down and all losses have been calculated and accounted for, sometimes a point of realization sets in that assigns a different value and worth to that which was, but no longer is. “When the barn burned down,” the old proverb says, “suddenly in it’s place, I could see the moon.” Every individual can discern for him or herself what jewels, if any, come into view in the aftermath of tragedy. Perhaps then, we are encouraged through Divine Providence to not take things so personally sometimes…like highway construction when we feel hurried, or when friends, lovers or material possessions disappear in an unexplained manner. Perchance it is through the discomfort of nettlesome events where we find their unsettling presence somewhat priceless. Maybe it is when the sting of such things are felt, that we might be encouraged to consider if there aren’t still a few pieces of life’s puzzle for us to turn around and reconfigure.

See Hummingbird? There. Not There.

Yet within the fabric of it all, I sense that people are quite reasonable. They just have their own reasons, you know? Possibly within the anatomy of such things, The Evolution of Compassion seeks to find space for the shadow and the light…and…the full moon and the new moon of diverse reasons and seasons. Imaginably, through the embracing of the diversity of feeling and reason, we as a global community might come closer to discerning whose dream this is anyway, and what it is we really collectively want to manifest.
