“Fame is fun, money is useful, celebrity can be exciting, but finally life is about optimal well-being and how we achieve that in dominator culture, in a greedy culture, in a culture that uses so much of the world’s resources. How do men and women, boys and girls, live lives of compassion, justice and love? And I think that’s the visionary challenge for feminism and all other progressive movements for social change.”

Meditation

“In order to survive as a race, as a planet, you must learn to share light. There is no other way.”

— Joanna Gawn

 

We must dare to be visionaries and participate in our global bright futures in whatever way we can.  That’s not always easy, not at all.  It takes courage and work to commit conscious acts of deep love every day.  It takes bravery to look in the eyes of the other, a stranger, and wish that person well and really mean it.  Sowing the seeds for a brighter future is the willingness to sometimes witness those events that are difficult to see.

When we become stuck in patterns of destruction we must push through the shadows into light.  We have all been in that place, those dark places of fear where the walls feel as if they were closing in.  During these times we must ask for Spiritual Help, and when we do the answers will come, sometimes not right away or directly, but they do come, often times through divine intermediaries, earth angels (or in some our cases spiritual angels) will show up with answers or to provide assistance.

If we can take insightful inventories of our lives we will see that there have always been guardians to support our life journeys, whether they were teachers, mentors, family or friends, someone answered our calls and showed up when we needed them the most.  But, we had to ask for the help in order to focus our minds on the possible solutions.

When I lived in New York City I loved taking those short fifteen-minute walks to pick up my children from school after work.  I not only was super aware of my surroundings, but also walked in a meditative state talking to The Universe and tapping into an imaginal realm, a Cosmic Well of potentiality.

Now, that I live in Florida, I am fortunate to have access to many magical realms of nature.  It’s amazing how much one can brainstorm all while listening and visualizing the beauty of nature or while sharing a greeting with a passing stranger.

We must not cut ourselves off from each other by limiting our access.  One vision of a New Earth is one of a global community and Universal access, one where we all can participate in the Light.

Continue to be loving luminous beings, sojourners!

Miraculously Yours, Tonya
