I hear from many of you that you are receiving that most sacred call in a life – the call from love, from beyond, to come closer. You are being asked to allow love to move through in a new way – knowing it will reorganize everything; sensing that it will re-order your body, your senses, your thoughts, your words, your heart, your nervous system, the way you speak kindly to and warmly touch those around you. When we allow love to be the architect and organizer of our lives, we may notice that the bottom falls out from underneath this reality; we are flying through space, no parachute, no ground. You are in utter no man’s land, your body is taking shape as the unknown, with no reference points, no perspective from which you could be deemed “awakened” or “not yet awakened” or "soon to be awakened" (“within the next three weeks”) or organized in any way around any of the rest of our constructed spiritual fables. The fear-based, me-oriented great spiritual tale of me and my experiences dissolves forever into love’s embrace.
This human experience is a grace field, and you are deeply and profoundly honored to behold its beauty with everything you’ve got, with the only response to it all that makes any sense whatsoever: not, “give me more groovy experiences, give me bliss, give me ‘no self,’ give me ‘no conflict,’ take away all the yuckies forever”– but, “Oh my god, thank you. No matter what experience is given – whether there is a self there, or a personality, or something yucky, or “conflict," I will make use of everything that is offered, to connect deeply with others, willing to remain unberably vulnerable forever, and to become a transparent vessel for the radical and ever-transformative movement of love.”
