Day Forty Five – Go Home

posted by Melanie Lutz

It’s amazing how it’s always all there.

So many cues, clues and symbols. Opening doors into new worlds just waiting. Waiting for the decoding and the processing and the recognition.

Sitting right in front of you. 

With the popularity of Dan Brown novels and all the scholars and resources and the internet you would think it would be easier to get it.

From my own experience it takes help. It takes love and it takes having a decoding moment, that offers the clue, a key stone offering the way to fill in the picture. Like The Miracle Worker exhausting herself to get Helen Keller to connect to some sign and symbol and connection ultimately discovering water would bring the opening.  The effort nearly frustrated and killed both of them, but once the connection was made Helen Keller was able to unlock a way to communicate, open up to new possibilities. Get the bridge out of the darkness and return from the separation of self.

Once you get “water” is this… instinct. feeling. emotion. You can use it to decode all the hidden messages in everything. It is all possible. Getting that first key stone is the hardest as blinders are built into the universal framework but ultimately care and work and faith allows us to see past our clouded and skewed vision.

Elaine Strich had it from her show At Liberty “I am mad as hell that I had to go through what I had to go through to get to what I’ve gotten to.”  And. Here I am. We’ve all gone through what we needed to go through, we’ve seen the outcomes of behavior, we’ve cycled through the disconnection, we see the truth. We know what doesn’t feel warm and friendly, we know what closes our hearts, we know what we need to be. We are not going to be able to hide behind fences, technology, or whatever defenses we imagine will help us, the planetary  population has eradicated that possibility. We are like little rabbits walking into the light for the first time. Realizing how connected we are, realizing there is no one left to squeeze to make a profit, no dumps left to fill. No ways that can’t be inherent in our means. We are interdependent on each other. We are here to help each other.

When we see with love. Life is easier. Love is easier.

Seeing leads to the promised land.

The promised land returns you home.  Every time.  Recognize what is already before you.  Open your eyes as never before and your heart in all ways, and if need be tap the heals of your metaphorical red ruby slippers three times and return home.  Right now.

Enjoy Luther VanDross singing from the soul – a house is not a home and let its spirit move you.
