What Does it Mean to be Human?

Today, a short post in my own words. I’ve been laid up for the past week with much time to think and reflect. It’s been intense, but only temporary and I’ve been so grateful for the loving friends who have come out to the farm to help me. I’ve been thinking of people for whom these situations are not temporary and send out much love to them for their courage to wake up and face each day.

Had a conversation with a friend last week and we talked about what it means to be human. When I hear about what is going on in this world, particularly, this country, I see the divisiveness reaching a crescendo. And I want to ask everyone, what does it mean to you to be human. Have we forgotten how to seek solutions for the common good? Have we begun to look at anyone who doesn’t agree with us as an adversary, rather than a teacher, showing us another way we might look at things, if we stopped to really talk and listen to each other?

I have promised myself to not get emotionally involved with what was happening in this world. But instead, to see the divinity within everyone on this planet. Is that a copout? This question came up last night during a zoom call with my dearest friends, all on the same spiritual path as me. And we decided that it was not a copout. In fact, it was incredibly difficult to stay in a state of grace during these challenging times.

I looked at all of their faces. Yes, each of them was tired, struggling with anger, exhaustion, trying to be non-judgmental. Challenged as we all are during these trying times. And yet, each of them looked beautiful to me. I could see their light shining even though they had to face this changing world daily.

One gave the suggestion of a meditation. If you see a wall in front of you, begin to see steps in that wall and see them rise over it and become a bridge that crosses over to a better world. I liked that image and will try it myself. For I do think its up to all of us to dream a better world. Before you sleep at night, ask for help in dreaming a better world, for the highest good. For it takes all of us to help make these transitions as gentle as possible.

Every night I imagine a beam of light rising from this farm that begins to surround the planet. I look at it from above and see the light covering the dark spots of the world. But the last time I did this, I saw other points of lights joining my light, from all across this world. And it gave me hope. Remember that we are striving for balance in this world, and that means dark as well as light. But at this time, the pendulum has swing too far in one direction. Please do what you can to help move it back to center.

I’m hoping I have only a few more days of this forced rest. Part of it I’m sure is my body adjusting to the newer higher vibrations. I suspect it affects us in our weak spots. So if you are having some physical issues, do not despair. Take care of them as best you can, rest and nurture yourself. One of the lovely perks of this temporary seclusion is that some people from my past, whom I love dearly and have made their transitions, have come to see me in my dreams. And it was so good to see them.

Be well, walk in grace and don’t despair. We will get through these times with your help. Sending out much love and light to each of you.

All my love,

Celine
