Rāpare, 31 Kohitātea. 2019 - I've heard it somewhere. "It takes a community to raise a child." We suffer a lack of health and wellbeing when community is controlled and undermined. This controlling and undermining as I see it, largely comes from systems of control like government.
Today is 13 Eb/Road in the ancient Aztec sacred Mayan count of time, a count of time that began over 26,500 years ago. I have ancient memory of this time, a time of decline as polarities changed and humanity was given a task to follow the path of its own will, learn the lessons of what separation from divine will can do. Hopefully we come full circle to a time where we may resume a divine path, if that is our WILL too.
The final day of any trecena lifts us up into the next with all we have gained from our experiences. The Sun/Ahau trecena has been about becoming more enlightened and growing in love and sovereign strength, to become more like a Christ-like master, or a solar master. When we are pure enough, we may heal like Christ did and live like this legendary master did.
From a foundation of purity, a mind filled with the light of the energy of the sun/son, a heart that leads life, is still and peaceful, filled with knowledge for life and natural lore, we move on to the next trecena of 1 Ben/Reed. Eb/Road is the loving force that assists us on our destiny path.
Ben/Reed is living this destiny from our homes. From here we may be protectors, speaking up and in loving action for causes that heal one another, those we live with, our families and naturally, our communities. It starts from wellbeing in the home and moves out from there.
Unsupported, our output is limited. In support, we start to thrive and express our authenticity, to be the gift of who we are with a vital contribution to life and creation. We learn how to be accepting of our differences and to find peace and harmony with them.
Living in a small community, there can be a lot of talk about different people and this can generate an underlying fear of messing up and being isolated within it. When we love, we accept others as the hurt and healing people we are, seeking to find our way in life. Only when there is love and acceptance, can the hurt heal and lead to health and wellbeing.
If we feel defensive, let's look at ourselves as to why. If we don't like what another does, let's first examine what the mirror of our reality may be trying to show us. Let's remain humble and gentle and flexible like a reed that moves with the wind.
The reed is planted into the soil of Papatūānuku, our Earth Mother. Sustenance is drawn up and through this intimate connection with her. We may also be grounded here, in intimate connection with our mother and one in the environment of nature around us. Nature will lead us back to the path of divine will.
All that is unnatural will start to release as we move our consciousness back to the path of divine will. When we speak up and act upon natural solutions that support community, our families and ourselves, we are a part of the change that ultimately saves our planet and heals her too.
Let's BE all that we can BE, by first attending to our own health and wellbeing. From here it will extend out further. Healing is our answer. Perhaps this is why the legendary Christ was a healer and modelled a way for us to be like that too. A true Christ is not a figure that seeks worship or adoration, or would preach any kind of hell fire or damnation.
The tax mans tables would be overturned and the unnatural ways that take us away from nature would be cleared away. This would open the space for true health and wellbeing. Self healing always comes first and brings the purity of heart, mind and our complete BEing so we may save ourselves, and contribute to the all with our lives.
The only way to the father (masculine aspect of source) is through the sun. It's through enlightenment. Enlightenment, the lighting up of the mind with pure sun light leads to healing, to giving, caring, sharing, peace, balance and harmony. May all this now be illuminated and amplified within all of us who are WILLing to be love and express pure light - and so it is
PS: I used to be a pastor's wife and in my quest for truth, I questioned everything, so I now see all religion differently including the message of Christ. Christ means 'anointed'. To me that is to be one with great spirit, wairua, chi, prana or whatever it is that gives the meaning of the sacred life force that embraces the ways of divine will. Good health to all.
I know I am placed within my community for a purpose and to serve in a way where my energy is maintained at the same time. The image below is in our local news. The local news has given some cohesion to the community, but it is also in need of support or funding for it to continue so that all who contribute can give in a way that they are not depleted either. I hope we find community solutions. It is so vital that we support one another where we can, so we can bless creation to the best of our ability as a human family.
