I’d like to share some personal news: I had a baby! 🙂
It was one of the greatest initiations of my life when my daughter Margo came into the world. Becoming a mom is one of those things – “you don’t know what you don’t know,” and while it’s a challenging, world-turning experience, I’ve found a deep well of strength and am overflowing with love.
Reflecting on this journey into motherhood I’m in awe of the miracle it takes for any of us to be here, experiencing this physical life. Life is truly a miracle. The fact that we were born is a miracle. The opportunity to be here and engage with each other, to share love and friendship and heartache is a miracle.
One of the core Mystery School teachings is that we are infinite spiritual beings. Our true self is who we are as spirit. Our true self is infinite. To be here and have this physical body is a gift. It’s a miracle.
Becoming a mom brings a lot of shifts. It’s like a new planet has entered my solar-system, and she has MASSIVE gravity. Everything is re-orienting around this new celestial Being.
In this re-orientation of life, one of the things emerging is how profoundly precious life is. How sacred life is. And how life is meant to be CELEBRATED.
While we have many challenges in life, my hope for all of us is that we can stay connected to this awareness of joy and celebration, and like a dancer, sashay and jeté over the obstacles that distract us from this miracle of life.
Or like a martial artist, wax-on-wax-off – not ignoring but redirecting energy to stay in the flow of love and joy. For joy is a state of being, and when we deal with the challenges of life from a state of joy, we have a perspective that lifts us out of the muck. In joy, we can better hold onto the sacredness of this miracle, and see things from a higher perspective.
Imagine if we lived life in a state of joy – in a state of celebration for the miracle of life – what would that look like? It’s a worthy contemplation, and I hope this message inspires you to reflect on the miracle of your own life, for it is precious. It is a gift. I am grateful to have this opportunity to be here and celebrate this miracle with you.
