All is in control but control is really freedom and peace comes from believing that the Universe is the one who orders every footprint in the sand. The footprints in the sand before you are there from your future but the future, the past, the present are all one. We are ‘in time’ but time is a created illusion and that illusion is shared by us all. We need to step out of the illusion and walk in the realisation that we are all one, we are all starlight, we are all free to be and to live and to exist in our pure state of existence …that of peace and love.
As we first learn to exist in only peace and love we can begin to walk in that state through our world around us and spread that powerful reality of our new existence to those around us. To those who we encounter every day and also to those we do not see face to face or in our physical locality but to anyone we hold in our mind and reach out to with our heart. No matter how near or how far they may be we can still reach them, touch them with our spirit and our love, share our light across any distance or indeed across any time line.
We can heal the hurts from the past and even reach into the future to heal those we will encounter along the path ahead of us. Outside of our ‘reality’ time does not exist, so we can move from here to there as if we are walking from one room to the next, as if we are stepping from this current moment in our timeline to any other moment before or after what we perceive as ‘now’. Our body may be locked into this linear journey of time like a train on a pre-laid track but our spirit and our love never need to obey that limitation.
As we grow stronger in our spirit-deep realisation of all these truths we can then start to run, not just walk, with an awe-inspiring sense of freedom and peace that others will long to attain. Others around us will be swept up in the breathtaking power of our freedom and motion and inspired to find what we have. Their journey will be their journey, our journey will be our journey, but the sheer force of forward moving freedom will raise those around us up onto their feet, like they were once lame but through a miracle they can walk again. The child within them, the innocent, free, powerful child they were born as will recognise what they had, what they were, what they again can be and what they unquestionably are destined to be.
We find our freedom, our path and we walk and then run for ourselves because we are driven by our spirit to achieve the freedom we were born with. The result of us doing what we must for ourselves is that it empowers and inspires and releases and uplifts others to do the same for themselves.
We spent much of our life sitting, waiting, fearing, hoping, trying, failing, questioning, doubting only because the world has been programming us to stay downtrodden and controlled and limited and restricted and abused for all of our lives. We simply must CHOOSE to look up, to stand up, to walk and then to run. Then we realise that we can fly and that our wings have always been there, they are our faith, and once we can dare to spread our faith and use it we realise that we can fly … that we always could … we simple chose to believe we couldn’t.
As simply as we can choose to believe … WE CAN!
