Oxygenate these ones with the breath of life

There will be times, as a ripening, sensitive human being, when you are greeted by a coloring of disconnection – with waves of flatness, loneliness, confusion, and despair washing in to your raw, tender nervous system. 

Others are not seeing you as you are. The world is not reflecting back the deepest truths that you've discovered. All the old dreams – of relationship, of everything you've 'figured out,' of what you were to 'become,' of your 'life purpose' – are falling away, dissolving into vast, empty space. Turned to dust in front of your very eyes.

The mysteries of the crucifixion, the resurrection, and the transfiguration are near. You are right on track. 

An invitation has arrived, unfolding out of the stars and taking form as the cell tissue of  your very heart: Will you meet the disconnected one? Will you hold the lonely one close? Embrace the hopeless one with kindness? Offer sanctuary for the confused one? And provide safe passage for the disoriented one?

Will you allow yourself to become no one in the womb of the beloved?

Oxygenate these ones with the breath of life and you will see that they are weaved of light, come in disguise to reveal something important about the unrelenting nature of love.
