Taking Home Wherever You Go

Life is full of uncertainties. We find ourselves moving through different spheres of being whether we are trying to illicit change or not. The journey is always happening even when life feels static.

Because the motion of transformation occurs at such an imperceptible rate during your normal daily grind, unless you look back with purpose at how life was say a year ago, your fearful self doesn’t get spooked because the flow was slow and natural.

What about those times of sudden shift though?

The use of the word home in the title is no more about your street address than it is about your furniture, in fact moving house could be one of the sudden shifts I’m referring to, as could a birth, a death, a new relationship or the end of one to name but a few. No, the home I’m referring to is the sense of stability, confidence and inner well-being that life is ok no matter what chaos is happening externally.

Familiarity, is the key to feeling safe. When you find that part of you which remains constant through all your experiences, the unshakable, unbreakable essence of who you are, who you came here to share as a gift to the world, that’s when you understand that home is a state of mind wrapped up in a quantum field that you are incapable of ever leaving and that change is merely an update in the illusory theatrical scenery and actors in the story.

If the story didn’t evolve, we’d all stop playing. When it evolves at pace we all get jittery simply because we lose our place in the script and are forced to ad lib without warning, making the plot twists that bit more nail biting, edge of your seat, sometimes excruciating.

The truth is that home is within not without and that everything else, everyone else, is just temporary shelter.

Remember who you are. Principle 1: I AM God.

Ship Ahoy!

Conversing as I regularly do with God yesterday in meditation, His first question to me was “What did you do?” He’s more than used to me scuppering His plans and so having to recalculate an alternative route, so I’m sure He runs multiple scenarios before He even lets a doorway or new pathway open up to me… I, for the most part, enjoy making God’s existence more difficult… or is that my existence? It’s all the same as the highest version of me is God anyway.

So, what did I do? I yelled “Enough already!” to the apparent distractions that will never be any more than just that.

Imagine for a moment that you are sitting in a small rowing boat in the middle of a vast ocean when all of a sudden a storm hits… the little boat is thrashing about and the last wave washed away your oars leaving you vulnerable and in danger of drowning… in the distance is an ocean liner. This vast shiny white beacon of hope is trapping at speed and seemingly unperturbed by the angry sea, heading toward some far away port in the sunshine… and you need help…

Screaming (inside and out) and waving your arms in the air to get the captain’s attention, hoping desperately that he will take just a few minutes and a slight course correction to pull alongside your swiftly disintegrating dingy to ensure that you will survive the remains of the storm… and there he is… Ship ahoy!

Quickly the captain acts: retrieving his set of red flags he sets about waving back at you as his ship sails on by at speed… and what does this semaphore include? Wait for it, wait for it… the most efficient way to bail out a sinking boat! Thanks captain.

This is the moment where you have to think on your feet… do you: a) keep screaming and waving your arms wasting vital breath and resources or do you b) remember you know how to swim and use that energy and deep breath to dive in and take your chances with the ocean?

God asked me another question at this point: “What do you want?” Oh so many trivial responses arose and fell within that split second but then one thing stuck… “security and guarantees.” I knew my answer was the one thing life wasn’t designed to give me but I also knew this much: staying in the boat, trying to read semaphore while the ocean liner sailed by, I was guaranteed to drown… jumping overboard there was a slim chance I might make it to the shore before I ran out of breath… but the shore is in the opposite direction to the captain’s red flags and big shiny ship.

What did I do? I dived… of course I dived. So now I’ve gone from ship ahoy! to man overboard!… and the captain can wave his flags all he likes on the brand new topic of optimum techniques for breaststroke and how to increase lung capacity on the next in-breath so that drowning is postponed a little longer. It doesn’t make any difference when you’re focused fully on saving yourself from the next wave…

The ship moves faster than you do, if it doesn’t alter course it doesn’t matter, ultimately that’s the captain’s decision.

So me and Big G are sitting there in meditation and He’s neither surprised nor pissed at me for ballsing up His master plan, He’s just smiling gently recognising that the storm has subsided and the shore is so much closer than I know… That the ocean is in fact Him in disguise… and the shiny white ship is just as susceptible to the right kind of wave as my little boat is… and that the captain wafts his red flags about because to bring that liner up close and personal… if it capsizes… well, he doesn’t know how to swim yet.

Right, I’m off now to take mum to see a vascular surgeon after her stroke last week. Thank you to all those boats that pulled alongside.

The Faraway Rumble

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Red

Things are afoot that are creating a shade of uncertainty and you may not be able to put your finger on it.

The combination of Principle 4: I AM Truth with the intense red of the 3rd dimensional base chakra is posing the question of what makes you feel secure and whether you are about to compromise that security to follow another’s truth.

The Faraway Rumble is suggestive of an undercurrent of change to which you may feel that you have no real power to stop but by being passive you are actually complicit in allowing your home, whatever home means to you, to be determined by someone or something that has no real interest in your individual hopes, dreams and fears.

When I pulled this combination and began writing, my concentration was fixed on the personal implications of another human being arriving into your home with new ideas and intentions and upsetting the apple cart, but as I got further into the energy it became apparent that more globally and politically this energy is playing out as shifts in power and infrastructure are being negotiated with no real truth for us to make a discernable choice that has not been touched by hype and propaganda.

It’s not my forte to explore the political scene but I wanted to make you aware on both a personal and transpersonal level that just because that rumble still seems faraway doesn’t mean that it isn’t your home, your security, your life that will be directly affected by the oncoming tremor.

This week you will be met with a choice and this choice may have been on the horizon for some time but now you are confronted with a tangible countdown to change. The truth is not obvious, your truth I mean, simply because you do not have enough information to form a clear picture in your mind of what accepting this change will really mean for your future… don’t be fooled by the shiny promises of those who are selling you this new life, do your own research… explore deep within your being for your own truth. Take the time to address your own personal goblins so that you can choose from love and not fear. Remember that a Grail Knight is a hero not an idiot… the quest requires risking it all for love but even those risks need to be calculated.

Love asks what’s best for everyone and comes up with a beautiful compromise it doesn’t say “…you would if you loved me.”

The Faraway Rumble is heading in your direction, time to assess what really makes you feel secure.

More next week… x
