Solstice approaches and stars are aligning. Actually planets. We are receiving messages from the heavens. Are we listening? Do we understand?
Messages come in many forms, often small communiques and miracles directed to us personally. I was recently pondering the advice of a professional about a certain product. All the information sounded appropriate, but something just didn’t feel right to me. I couldn’t really put my finger on it, but I didn’t feel comfortable. I was pondering an answer but wasn’t actively seeking it out. A couple of days later at an odd time of day, I happened upon an television ad for an upcoming special on an entirely different subject. The answer to my question was highlighted in just a few seconds. I knew God had sent me a message. Sometimes it is so direct and so clear that my belief wavers a little in astonishment.
And what about this solstice message for everyone from the heavens above? What collective meaning can we derive as this star shines down upon earth? It is clear that firm belief in a brighter future is required – listening and understanding is only half the story. What actions must we take? Because we are creating the kind of world we want to live in. I do have faith in the miraculous life, where we see our dreams outpictured and gratitude leads us forward. Our thoughts, words and deeds form an evolving blueprint for our next steps on our journey. And each individual step affects the collective.
I went to sleep last night pondering this quote from Nicholas Roerich, artist, visionary and humanitarian: Often a casual and sporadic thought stirs the surface of the ocean of achievement for a long time. A man may have forgotten about his thought long ago, but it continues to fly before him, lighting or darkening his path. Our choices are being highlighted on a grand scale as we conclude the tumultuous 2020.
With the Christmas star gracing the heavens, we ponder its meaning for ourselves and for all humanity around the globe. May our hearts and our thoughts center on our responsibility to ourselves, to our paths and to one another. May our love take flight to where we hear need calling. May we deepen our belief in our ability to create a world that echoes our brightest visions. May we understand the coming of the Christic light and affirm the miraculous life we deserve.
Blessed Solstice and Merry Christmas!
