Over the last few weeks, the level of uncertainty has increased here in the UK. Many people are feeling increased fear and anxiety, increased social pressure and division, and an increased sense of mourning for the life of freedom we enjoyed so recently yet which can feel so remote right now.
In the face of increasing chaos and conflicting narratives in the outside world, we are forced to find stillness and stability by turning inwards. This is an opportunity for us all to connect more deeply within ourselves, with the earth and with the Universe. Here we can find deep peace and calm even in the most challenging times.
Here also we may find our own truth that arises from our intuition and deepest knowing, that guides us so clearly amid all the noise from the media and the politicians.
And here we can find a way to live in love and radiate compassion for all, even those we don’t agree with, so that we may be united in our intention to minimise suffering and move towards a better tomorrow.
“The way of the heart is the way of courage. It is to live in insecurity; it is to live in love, and trust; it is to move into the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be.
And if you are authentic about your joy, your tears, your dance, sooner or later there will be people who will start understanding you, who may start joining your caravan. …. The whole art for the new humanity will consist in the secret of listening to the heart consciously, alertly, attentively. And follow it, go wherever it takes you.
Don’t try to understand life. Live it! Don’t try to understand love. Move into love. Then you will know – and that knowing will come out of your experiencing. That knowing will never destroy the mystery: the more you know, the more you know that much remains to be known.
One needs to be an adventurer, always ready to risk the known for the unknown. And once one has tasted the joys of freedom and fearlessness, one never repents because then one knows what it means to live at the optimum. Then one knows what it means to burn your life’s torch from both ends together. And even a single moment of that intensity is more gratifying than the whole eternity of mediocre living.”
