Day Nineteen – Embrace the Flood

posted by Melanie Lutz

Embracing the gifts as they come flooding in and through is your job in a practice of LOVE.  Whatever happens, whatever comes your way, you are relaxing into an understanding that everything has its charm. It’s appeal.

Everything moves to a rhythm. A rhythm of life. A rhythm of acceptance. A dark inscrutable workmanship that is always at play as Wordsworth wrote those discordant elements beating as one concerto/society.

Letting go of the need to hold a future event or occurance, frees the moment of now and gives everything up ro presence to God’s will flowing and flowering and nourishing your spirit.

Sometimes the floods of  love comes through to wash up the oppressed energies and emotions and clear the way for a new day.  Accept what is presenting and connect to your inner wisdom and the center of your being where love resides.

Let’s Remember Together. To any problem perceived or otherwise Love remains the answer and peace is our responsibility.

Any student of history will tell you that American is made up of the most diverse collection of races, religions, beliefs and peoples. Why? America was the new land, holding the promise of a new age, it remained the last melting plot available on our precious planet to leave behind the oppressions of tyranny. But, as anyone who has ever had to face their demons or “train their dragon” will tell you, running from your fears or the fears of the collective does not make them go away. Fears exist to be met and faced and understood so they can be freed from ruling our unconsciousness behaviors.

Because we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave does not mean we do not have to practice what we preach, that we are not suffering from the afflictions of humanity, that we didn’t murder, and oppress, and cheat and steal, that we didn’t make decisions that were based in personal fears.  Freedom is a discipline we apply everyday because every man brings with him and plays host to his own terrors projecting those terrors into the consciousness of a society. It is each individual’s personal journey to transcend beyond these lower thinking forms exercising bravery in the quest to be free, rising above the battlefield and baring witness to the truth.

While our history has blemishes that we continue to atone for; the slaughter of the Native Americans, the entitled slavery of a beautiful race of people, women’s suffrage, civil rights, bank oligopoly, corporate raiding, seething greed, there is one thing that remains constant — faith in the “better angels of our nature.” A space where whatever unjust, not right minded human afflictions are taking place that we are willing to see the truth and hold the space for new possibilities, to look at things in a different way, to argue yes, but then to see the light and be a clear and present source and beacon of truth so this mass collection of “discordant elements” as William Wordsworth stated could “move in one society.” One society embracing each others differences in love and opening to the highest possibilities of peace for all humanity.

Getting a little biblical (and who doesn’t love the bible)– from the Sermon on the Mount. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.” 

You can build your house on the rock of truth or the sand of your fear.  We are all blessed with a choice. In making a choice between the two in a stance of honesty and Love I invite you to consider how your actions to yourself and others will affect your own personal sense of peace.  

In all the drafts of his speech Abraham Lincoln included a confrontational pointedly aggressive statement addressed at the South that he removed when he delivered the speech. The final line of the Inaugural was to have read….

“Shall it be peace or sword?

Either way the result remains the same – the truth will shine through. The choice is yours. 

God Bless America!  Have an amazing day!

lots o Love,

Melanie
