Ending the dream of postponement

It is unlikely today is going to be the day when you figure your life out. When you heal your past. Resolve all your wounding. Get all your questions answered. Or know what is coming next.

It is unlikely today will be the day you finally manifest all the great things you think will make you happy. Call in the soulmate that will complete you. Permanently wiggle into some state of high-vibration and invulnerability. Or complete some mythical journey of spiritual awakening.

What a relief. A day of celebration… of what you are. And of the end of the dream of postponement.

You need no longer delay full, embodied participation in the miracle as it surges out of the darkness, the fragility, the shakiness, and the uncertainty. The invitation is into the opposites and the contradictions, where that which is unknown and unprecedented is taking form, where the energies of separation and of union co-emerge and spin out the relative world.

Today may not be the day for answers, but to finally let your heart break open to the vastness of the question. To stand on the rooftops and proclaim that you are not a project to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.

Buried inside the glory and the mess, right in the core of the not-knowing is pure creativity. This is what you are. Love has come into form, somehow, by some grace, as your feelings, as your imagination, as your body, and as the ragingly unique signature of the cells of your heart. There is no greater miracle than this. It is complete. You are complete.

Return into slowness and into this current breath, which contains all of the seen and unseen worlds. You are here, rippling and pregnant with life, and there is no urgency on the path of love.
