In my journey, I’ve discovered something recently. I may not understand everything about recalibration and shifts and downloads… Don’t even know what they all mean in the bigger scheme of things. I see posts about them everywhere… Articles… And I was wondering “why am I different?” Why am I not “tapped in”; aware of these “precepts”, these “words”? My ego wanted to feel badly; like maybe I don’t belong. Maybe I’m just to
spiritually immature to understand.
But this morning, I saw this quote and remembered something Spirit told me a little while back: “What is greater? To be the giver of the gift…. Or the gift itself? BE the gift”. I have been reminded on more than one occasion.
This morning I am more aware of what The Divine meant. I Am that I Am. The Giver of the Gift is Source. We ARE the gift itself. If we just allow what IS to be, then all the downloading, the shifting, the calibrating will occur whether it is understood or not.
Maybe I’m not meant to understand these things yet; maybe Spirit speaks to me and through me of other things. I don’t know yet. But I know Spirit speaks and I see, I hear, I know and I feel. I know that the words that come forth from me are more often than not not my own and I know that I could not love with the capacity I do if it were not of The Divine. I know that every breath I take is a gift and that my perception is becoming that of Divinity and not of myself. I know I cry out of gratitude and release and joy. Boy do I cry. And I know that my grateful heart is also a gift. I know of prophecy, of empathy and telepathy and healing. And I know that there is a purpose for this lifetime… Whatever it may be. I know I am not a mistake or an accident and that every step I take leads me closer to where I am destined to be.
A friend asked us what gifts we see evolving (I’m paraphrasing my beautiful friend) and for a long moment.. I was afraid to answer. Afraid I didn’t know HOW to answer. That I didn’t understand what everyone else does. My ego screamed at me that I didn’t get it! That I was an ant in a Cosmos of Spiritual Giants. Then Spirit quietly spoke and said “even an ant carries more than its own weight”. “Ants build colonies”. “Ants work together for a collective purpose to accomplish what may seem to be an insurmountable task”.
For me, I am learning to “be” whatever I AM to be… Have always been meant to “be”. And I AM learning to be content in the state where with I find myself, moment to moment. Someone once wrote “comparison is violence against ones own soul”. I know of this as well as I have engaged in it more times than I can count. But I also now know that I cannot participate in comparing myself to others for my souls sake.
Please do NOT misunderstand. I do not for one moment believe my friend’s beautiful mind brought forth the question to cause us to compare anything! But to share what we now understand and learn from each other. We all hold a piece of the TRUTH. I believe your love and compassion provoked a question to be answered in self awareness and lesson learning that we are all blessed to be experiencing. I believe that in me, it brought forth a realization of acceptance rather than discontent and a love of self that I am growing into. A realization that whether an “ant” or not… I am still a part of the whole, a spark of The Divine. And for me…. That is something that has taken me almost 57 years to learn.
So, I thank you my luminous friend for asking the question. Because it allowed for a beautiful affirmation and more lessons for me. For more understanding and for the creation of a greater, deeper relationship with my Creator. I am grateful for what is being cultivated among us and for the friendships I am making. I am grateful I am finding pieces of myself along the way and bringing them with me. And I am so very grateful for Spirit’s LOVE and gifts of those sent to me to let me know I am not alone; that I am indeed that which I always searched for… Home
