Sometimes we just have to sit back in Awe . . . and take time to really let it penetrate. It is truly amazing what a difference a year can make. One of the gifts of a New Year is that I get emails sometimes from dear friends…who have become ‘way-showers’. So it was when I heard from Dr. Friedemann Schaub. I traveled to Egypt with Friedemann and Danielle Rama Hoffman, his beloved wife, a few years ago.
Actually it could have been easily ‘looked over’, it was clearly sent to everyone on his email list. I read it…and decided to take the time to take it seriously! I invite you to ask yourself: Would you have??? Friedemann invited us to get out a pen and writing pad and do a seemingly simple process: Acknowledge your Successes, Appreciate your Blessings and Embrace the Growth You Have Made.
It all started out with identifying Highlights of 2013…something that most of us may not do as we take a deep breath in anticipation of a New Year, glad to ‘let go’ of some of the things of the old year! It invited me to identify the Accomplishments that I had created (or helped to create), and notice the Lessons I had Learned.
Interestingly, it also invited me to identify the Blessings I had experienced as well as my Desires and Intentions for 2014. I found myself adding in the word ‘Yearnings’ here…somehow that took me to the realms of my Soul Yearning for the Bridges between the visible and the Invisible. It is the Union of Heaven and earth, which has become so real now for me.
Finally, it asked me to identify my Top Five Goals for the coming year. That’s where it broke down for me… I’ve moved from setting goals to intentions and even beyond that in my on-going journey into the Mystery. So…I translated it! It is a great gift to know how to speak the different languages of the different countries!
I easily moved into my Top Ten Glimpses of Soul Vision for 2014 and then realized that I already had been living the Theme that will remain an ongoing part of my life… It is Living, Loving, Legacy: Living my destiny, loving my life and realizing legacy. It is, in the words so familiar to me, Always Already Present!
What I realized was that the year of 2013 had been a benchmark year for me! I had said ‘Yes’ to a learning curve that was totally beyond anything I’d ever done…or had known how to do. I kept being clearly guided, I’ve always Known when the Holy Spirit shows up in my life. Usually, however, I’ve had a sense of how to follow the guidance. This time I didn’t. I knew nothing about how to do Tele summits on the platform of the worldwide web! I would just have to Trust and ‘follow the dots’.
Now, more than a year later…I simply look at it all in AWE… All of the learning that was overwhelming has given me some of the sweetest, most beautiful, even tender moments of connecting and re-connecting with some of the most incredible Master Teachers on the planet. All of them have been here teaching at Unity of Tustin. These amazing Intersections in Time that changed my life had occurred over a period of nineteen years. And now, they were happening again…renewed.
I couldn’t even have imagined the Blessings that would sweep over my soul as I wrote the invitations, telling them how much they had meant in my life… Sometimes tears would come as I wrote, recalling moments we had shared, conversations we had, how their teachings had changed the way I saw the world.
And, then the dialogues…the response was overwhelming. There were 1,938 people who registered to hear the intimate conversations about how these Master Teachers are living their destiny, loving their life and how realizing legacy has happened. They are mapmakers of consciousness, explorers of unexplored territory. And in saying ‘Yes’ to the Work of their lives, they have impacted the world.
Suddenly, I saw, as if for the first time, that all of the pieces of my ‘overwhelm’ had been the building blocks of my confidence. They had all been part of taking what had felt wonderful to me, my role as Senior Minister of Unity of Tustin for nineteen years, into a Vaster dimension that was somehow inviting me to say ‘Yes’ to what I couldn’t understand: “You are now Called By Love…”
What is so clear now is that all of it was coming together in ways that my human mind could never understand. Only the Experience of saying ‘Yes’ to the Unknowing would bring it into Clear Seeing. And out of that would come an incredible feeling of total comfort and what the world would call amazing success…achieved only in the We Space of a passionately committed and talented team…all Called By Love.
Now, I realize I’m seeing a Vision again… Dreaming it (both by day and at night), learning how to do it, co-creating it, developing the team that is also Called By Love, and seeing how the Vision sets the Field for the Worldwide platform in the Invisible. That word…Worldwide…that I ‘got’ driving through a blinding snowstorm going across the planes of Kansas over 20 years ago…before the internet even existed.
So, one of the Highlights of 2013 has been seeing the immense shock and grief of the whiteboard of my life being erased begin to dissolve into Immense Gratitude that is becoming Joy… Now I experience parallel universes, existing simultaneously.
The Yearnings, the Desires, the Intentions for 2014? That would include exploring Soul territory, new maps and the bridges in-between of Radical Inclusivity… The Lessons I have learned would include ‘don’t try to rush it’…Grief that is so deep simply takes time… And The Love Continues…Forever…
These things I know, as I say ‘Yes’ to stepping into the role of a Master Teacher on the worldwide web. I also know that this Spiral is about a Vertical and a Horizontal matrix. And it’s about seeing Our Lives as a Living Laboratory.
