The transient distractions of the material world enveloping your senses, clouding and distorting your vision of reality, of truth and of a sense of true Self, bombarding you with the noise of progress, the chase for success, and the constant clamour for attention. It is all too easy to get both lost and entangled in this frenetic rhythm. Yet, deep within the recesses of your being, you carry a spark of Divinity. It flickers ever softly, whispering reminders of your true nature, beckoning you to awaken from the slumber of forgetfulness.
Living consciously in a world seemingly obsessed with verticality requires a dedicated commitment to deliberate choices that align with your higher Self, as the seductive cadence of society hypnotically drones, lulling you further into a deep sleep. On and on and you’re on to the next thing, on to the next one, on to the next goal, whilst never realising what you are searching for, nothing truly satisfying, nothing truly awakening your soul: the allure of instant gratification; the indulgent temptations with their tantalising promises; the ego validation that you are worth it; the building up to tear you down, continually whispering seductive lies into your ears. All the while something within tugs at the threads of your soul’s longing for depth and meaning, asking you whether you will find something in there to give you just what you need?
There are moments in time when, amidst these challenges, you have to step back, away from the bland equally tempered tones that serve to lower your consciousness and to find the music within. It is in these moments of true and honest contemplation that you earnestly reconnect with the divine thread, that spark of unique creativity that is ever present. It is a place where silence reigns and the voice of your deeper essence can be heard. It is a place, I know you know. And it is a place I know you prefer to reside.
You may lack a clear sense of material purpose because you see the illusion of the constructed world. You may not want to participate in perpetuating the lie that drains your intrinsic vitality. But you do live here, and there is nothing to stop you from raising the bar and creating the world as you know it to be.
Today, you are being invited to transcend the illusion of separation, to anchor yourself in the unshakable truth that divinity resides within you and in everything and everyone that exists, even if it feels so far from that truth. Kindness resides in every place, if only you can hear and see it. Why not become the conscious vessel through which the light of gOd can shine, radiating warmth and understanding in a world hungry for genuine connection.
Living consciously in two worlds simultaneously is a profound test of faith and resilience. It is an invitation to consciously merge worlds even in the face of adversity. Shy not from the challenges or falter in the face of doubt. Embrace the struggle, knowing that it is through these very challenges that you consciously evolve, grow, and ultimately, come closer to the divine.
