(Posted by Cathy DuBois) Don’t know about you folks, but I am so ready for spring. I moved here during spring last year and got really tired of the rain. I guess that’s what happens when you move away from the desert. Anyway, I am ready to get wet again. I love the flowers, and even though I am a great menace to them, I keep trying to keep them alive.
Life is all about becoming. So as the flowers are becoming what is already in their nature for them to become, I have to discover what is “natural” for me. It is a lot harder than it looks. Like many of you, I have spent my life digging through and processing all the lessons I have accumulated and deciding which ones continue to serve me and which ones don’t. I want to discuss some of them here.
I thought being a wife and mother were natural things. Looked like a piece of cake. However, both of those things were very hard to do and still are. Sometimes it worked out and sometimes it did not. Along with the natural, physical aspect of giving birth, being a mother day in and out was very hard work being mostly unrecognized and unappreciated. But through it all, I was engaged in becoming.
Being and having a good friend also looked easy and was for me until junior high school…that time of hormones and great drama. Then all bets were off. My best friend up to that point, the one I spent all my daylight hours with began to hang with the guys and was shamed into thinking our friendship was for sissies. After years of being hurt by that, I realized that he was gay and his first gay friend was jealous of any competition. Ah, there is that ego-based stuff again. Competition, the bane of our existence, but I digress. All of this was just me, and him as well, becoming.
So, the point I am trying to make is we never get there. It is all a journey, not a destination. We forget that. We look around and see people who appear to be so happy, so fulfilled, and all that happy-ever-after movie propaganda. However, no matter what it looks like, they are still becoming, too.
I will remember as I water my plants, feed all the birds and mow the fast-growing grass, that everything is in process. We must not forget that. Nothing is set in stone and we have a chance every day to keep moving along in ways that make us happy but never done.
This is the New Gaia and is the home of the Creator Beings. Practice it, think about it and let go of all the old burdens, heartaches, perceived failures, contracts, hard work, etc. They will no longer serve you. It is time to choose who you want to be and consciously be that now. If you want more guidance on this important topic stay tuned for more resources.
