Changes

The world has changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air...
                                                                                             Galadriel, Lord of the Rings


That prologue of the Lord of the Rings spoken by Galadriel is one
of my favorites in all of the movies....

But, it's also how I'm feeling these days....the world has changed. 
And obviously, we are changing with it....and for the most part,
I feel it's for the better.   I think we probably have some last bits
of karma that we are burning through, but overall we are headed
in the right direction.

I'm also feeling a bit lost in all of this....it seems in looking back on
my life, I have just sort of floated along....taking this bend of the
stream....moving back over the other side....no real plan or direction.

Now, I'm feeling I have to make a decision, put together a plan, set
some goals!  Which would be fine, except....I'm lost. 

So, 2013 is going to be a year of exploration for me...I'm looking under
every rock, in every nook and cranny, high and low.....maybe I will
see you along the way!

This is no time for timid hearts

This is no time for timid hearts
For holding back your most precious gifts in the face of fear of retribution
For wedging yourself into a doorway while you wonder
if you are worthy of entrance
For sitting interminably on a fence whose only purpose is
to separate you from your very self
This is no time
 
This is no time to utter whatever from a place of rarefied observation
To be carried along buoyed by neither aim nor intention
To let life live you blithely while you relinquish your birthright of free will
To sanction guilt and obligation as they hold sway
over your most fervent desires,
This is no time
 
This is no time for equivocation, for hedging and backsliding
For whimpering and decrying all that you have created
For playing victim to predators of any stripe, be they real or illusory
For abdicating personal responsibility in the face of a
preponderance of evidence,
If ever there was a time, it is not now
 
For forthright declaration of your deepest truths
This is the time
For standing your ground for causes that bear the mantle of justice
This is the time
For fostering unadulterated freedom that rings out
above the screech of politics and posturing,
For inaugurating new byways of sustainable evolution
by lifting one hand after another
For redeeming without hesitation the wonderful
that you believed was gone forever
This, right now, is the time
 
This is not the time to take the bait of vulturous fearmongers
To withhold the emanations of your frangible heart
To stockpile the succulent flowerings of your soul
To hurl at others the boomerang of judgment or culpability
(lest it return to its rightful owner)
This is not the time
 
If you have ever yearned to unleash your passions
Ached to be exponentially more than you have dared to be
Hungered for a greater humanity within and without
Longed for connection that defies the so-called bounds
of time and space
And have known for eternity that you were born to be Love,
 
Today
Right here
Right now
This is the time.
