The other day I saw four great blue herons, my special spirit animal, in flight. This was greatly encouraging to me — it has always meant “everything will be okay”, or “Spirit is with you.”
Indeed, I had a difficult meeting about the work issue yesterday, which went very well. I have to be courageous in the coming days, to file my informal complaint and return to work until I find another job.
Through all this turmoil I have been quite content. I am learning not to hold onto troubles. Instead I’m focusing on Spirit.
Yesterday I asked for messages for me, and was told that love is the supreme instrument of all forces. I still need to unpack that statement and get to the meat of it. Spirit said that compassion is simply right relationship. That rings true for me. When we are truly in right relationship with all things, compassion flows easily. When I know how I am affecting the Everything with my every breath, I breathe compassion.
Spirit said many things about love:
Love, always love
the complication of it
required the forces
of the universe.
By that I see that all begins and ends with love, compassion, and right relationship. And that to construct the attributes of these things, the universe was made.
Birds will fly out of the wilds
beautiful as galaxies
and swoop upon your souls.
I’m not yet sure what that means, but it reminds me of my great blue herons.
And finally, Spirit said,
People are diamonds,
souls precious beyond measure
so uplift your soul
from the ground
by the twin-twined tree
and lay it open,
lay it shut,
and write poems to your DNA.
To me, that’s a poem about writing a poem to DNA, the “twin-twined tree” that opens and shuts to reproduce itself. I think it’s a message to look into the metaphysical ideas behind DNA, such as DNA activation and the effects of consciousness on DNA.
Lots to go on, and I’m feeling strong.
Interestingly enough, my previous post about my troubles at work was my 100th post! So it should be a celebration instead of a complaint.
