I will begin to post on our Heart Space weekly email to this page.
Dear Friends and Heart space Community,
Wishing everyone here love. Love to hold in your heart and love that pours over into the lives of others, those you love, those you know, and those who are strangers, and even perhaps the occasional enemy. We all have someone who does not like us…maybe even more than one. Bless them all. And of course, love that flows back to you. I hope you feel loved. It has been cold and these days it is the warmth of love that helps us get through our days. It comforts us and it heals us. I wish that today, for each of you.
I am late again, and what I didn’t mention last week. just occurred again. I lost the whole email with one click, just as I was making one little adjustment, this week, and last week, I forgot to save the session and so when I clicked to send…all was lost. Now, for the 2nd week I am quite astounded by my response. I did not get upset, or lose my composure or peace of mind…I let it go and here I am starting over, having to stop to make dinner and wait until after dinner. It is the little things. Little shifts that move us forward in a big way.
I can never repeat the same thing so perhaps it is that I was to say something else. This came up about feeling loved because sometimes something happens where you feel you were not loved, or there was a lack of kindness or regard. To acknowledge that it hurts and then watch where it goes from there. Wait to see how long it takes to offer love to the one who emotionally knocked you around. Once you do that the damage is gone.The event is outside of you where the harm cannot be registered for harm, only for gratitude. Thankful to know how it hurts to feel unworthy of someones kindness, and to, 1) have no expectations of anyone treating you as you would have wished, and 2) always, where there is choice, show love. So long as there is a flow of love outward from you, there will always be flow towards you, by someone, somewhere. Love never misses its mark to generate more love somewhere along the divine consortium of time and space.
I want to talk about Heart Space. I have disconnected from Meetup until we can get back to something resembling regular practice. I feel hopeful that soon we will be adding new classes to the calendar. I am beginning to reach out to people that I feel will be able to add something new and fresh to Heart Space. I am feeling that within this pandemic there has be a play for recreation within us. And recreation can be just about anything that is new for us, or something new that has been nudging at us for awhile. A new humanity needs newness of thoughts and ideas. So I will be inviting some new teachers to offer classes and workshops that will enhance the awareness for recreation within each of us. Especially if that recreation is inviting us towards knowing what our unique gift is to offer to a new humanity…a new world. If you think we need one, you have already been called.
This one class this week until we are completely vaccinated. Just not knowing how to anticipate our reaction to our 2nd dose. And my apologies for being this late and an attempt to get this out by Sundays beginning next week.
Wednesday Feb 24 ~ 1 to 2:15 PM ~ Soul Awakening Practice and Meditation
Please preregister. Space limited to 5 only.
Recreation is co-creation with the play of Existence. Existence keeps playing with us…throwing life at us like a ball. “Play with me”! What you are reaching for is reaching for you, and too often we keep dropping the ball. We are fearful and resistant. But we know. Sometimes we are afraid of where we are being led. Remember this…Existence just wants us to see our optimum possibility…it never forces us and the decision is always ours. Our decision is always an act of love and gratitude. Love we receive and our gratitude expressed for such love.
We have been through a time. Some have lost their way, and some have found a way. In that space there is an opening for those brave enough to say either. A space for communion. Everything, once back, will be different, because we are now different. We have changed, some without knowing. So there is a play with recreation. with and for ourselves that will take place. Our conversations, our stories and heartache, how we suffered and how we made it through, day by day, some hour by hour, will be vehicles for love and compassion to weave a future of change. You see we have to change if we are to change direction collectively. Each with an offering, an open heart and a upturned hand…givers and receivers co-creating with Existence, joined in the sacred dance of what is.
Or it could stay like this, and it might and it could. Existence does not require all of us to adhere to the recreation. Just a big enough swath of humanity to realize. If the larger majority don’t shift, we all are held back. Existence requires us to acquiesce, and it allows along our decisions…we are co-creators for the best or the worst either way.
So if we feel we have received the call, it is now the time to pay attention to all that is being asked of us, all that is being said. It is personal, it is a private call to each of us to welcome recreation, in any way it is presented. A personal call to play. Play is a risk…it moves away from the familiar things and ways. It offers an interior view of subtlety, wisdom of things hard to describe and explain, separate from our world that offers far too much of useless things, suffering under the weight of bad decisions. I feel this is the moment that the door has been opened this wide for so many.
Wishing and hoping and praying, all different things, for our love to be called in so we never again have to be witness to such callous disregard for our fellow man, for our humanity, for human life for all that has life. That grace will find us to guide us in the ways of responsible decision making. That we will learn to leap forward into a new humanity. regardless of how naive it sounds, knowing that what we yearn for is written in our DNA, and so it will always feel missing until realized.
I wondered if this was our last snowfall today. I don’t mind the snow…it is a bit reminiscent of things normal…like snow in Winter. Actually I love the snow!
May you feel loved,
Peace and blessings,
Heart Space at Seven Stones
