Let me take you back in time to a song (also a poem) from a couple of decades ago called Desiderata. One of the verses goes like this:
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
Those words resonated with me the first time I heard them and still continue to do so today. I have repeated them to myself over and over as the world sometimes seems to be falling apart, waiting for A Super Hero God to step in and save us from ourselves. I still am not positive that that WON’T happen in some manner, but it gives me comfort to believe that there is a powerful benevolent entity that is holding the pieces together and creating beauty from chaos. I KNOW in my heart something good will prevail.
I have from an early age felt a calling. It has at times subsided to the back burner temporarily, but never ever gone completely. Other times it comes back with such ferocity that it shakes me to the core, bringing uncertain fears…What is it? What do you want? Who are you? What should I be doing?
If you are reading this, you may recognize the feeling. I am sure, in fact, that you do.
We are being called. We are being called to step forward and make a difference. That sounds like a World War II recruiting poster slogan, but it has never been so urgent as today.
How do I know? I just do. And that is a big part of my writing and workshops; asking you, as does Oprah…what do you KNOW to be true?
There is a reason we are here on this planet, right now and for a very specific purpose. That is why, at almost age 70, I am stepping out of my comfort zone, sometimes feeling like Steve Jobs’ Crazy Ones…and creating Connecting Resources. As Neale Donald Walsch states in Tomorrows God…I am announcing myself to you and seeking those of you who “get my drift.” I know you are out there.
It is my belief that we are moving through Six Stages of Connection; connection with an energy that we might describe as God, as Love, as Higher Consciousness. It will effect you in your own specific way, but you will recognize it.
I sincerely wish you a pleasant journey. Remember I am with you traveling the same path.
Now let’s get started….we have much to do.
