It’s again been a long time between chats here my friends. It appears that there is a retreating from the world like never before in the history of humankind . “Out there” looks like the illusion and my inner world becomes much more inviting. I must step out and engage.

It seems we have been given permission, encouraged even, to isolate. It is a guilty pleasure to be out of the hot sun of trouble the world has experienced and is culminating in this last year.

Remember the lyrics, “in the desert you can’t remember your name, and there ain’t no one to give you no pain”? Even in my own backyard retreat it creeps into my heart.
Out there consists of pandemics and epidemics. Many of our own have fallen, even here, hidden in my garden the Pain is palpable. It hurts my soul when other souls are so ravished. Is this your experience too?
The one reoccurring message from one of my mentors is “hang on for the ride, it will get worse before it gets better”. The whole world is so much smaller now. When the platitude, “we’re all in this together” comes up, which by the way I hear at least 10 times a day, I see the truth to it.

Never have the people of every deep valley and every high mountaintop experienced this horror all at the same time and to the same degree. The pain of the people is so loud in its crescendo that the collective is now fulfilling its own prophecy. The mentors say we will become what we must to survive…HEB’s (Higher Evolved Beings), the papers say we won’t. But we are working with our traditional enemies, the drug labs are all sharing their secrets. Even corporations are pulling up stakes in country’s not supporting human rights. We can’t change without the rendering of the power of
money and politics.

Through necessity, like children we are learning to share realizing, yes, we are our brothers keeper.
Even I am despairing when I take the cover off and look under the hood. Every time I think it couldn’t get any worse it does. We are hanging on in a shared reality never experienced before in its totality.

So as I tell myself to hang on, I share with you, because we must. There’s no place left to go!
Warrior on my friends,let’s do this. Change hurts, ethnicity is a hard one to break. It all comes down to simple respect and a realization that when I do well for another I am doing well for me and mine. When I hurt you, I hurt myself.
Be well and stay safe💕

I am on new ground now, finally free from many decades of ‘taking care of business’. The letters behind my name became an anchor that I have finally broken free from. You have a standing invitation to walk with me here, where the living is easy and uncluttered.
