Are You a Lifter or a Dragger?

We are spirits having a human experience.

We are part of the Collective Soul… the Spirit of the Earth, the Spirit of the Universe.

As humans, we tend to see ourselves as separate; separate from other humans, separate from all other forms of life, including separate from the life of the Earth as a whole.

We see ourselves in the container of our bodies. The edges of our bodies are where we end and the rest of the world begins.

When we realize we are a pulsating light, a spirit without a container, and that the whole Earth (whole Universe…) is our container, we begin to sense – see – feel our oneness with everything. We are everything.

We are all related. We are all connected. We are all one.  *Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ

How you walk through your day, the world, does not impact just your life. It impacts everyone and everything, the Earth as a Whole.

Your ripple in the world impacts us all.

Your attitude, the energy you give off, either lifts up the Collective Soul or drags it down.

Are you a Lifter or a Dragger?

*Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ (All Are Related) is a phrase from the Lakota language. It reflects the world view of interconnectedness held by the Lakota people of North America.

Cozying Up to the Collective Soul

 

forest Scene

Over the couse of my lifetime I had been taught to look to a higher power for strength; pray to God for needs. This cultural teaching puts some unknown power at the center of everything: this all knowing, all powerful, male figure.

Intuitively, I always knew there was something that just was not right with this. As a kid, we trust and believe the adults around us know more than we do.

I have always been enamoured with the natural world and could feel its amazing power and energy. Everything living and things we think of as inanimate (soil, rocks, water, mountains)  are infused with amazing, vibrational energy.  There is universal wisdom, waiting to teach and share with you, in everything.

As I grew over the years and decades of my life, I have come back to what we intuitively know as humans: the divine lies within each of us and within everything. Spirit, life force energy, the Collective Soul is a part of every being and every thing on this planet including the planet as a whole.

When we honor the divine in everyone and everything, Namaste-Blessed Be-Mitakuye Oyasin, we live life from a space of gentle peacefulness, wonder, and gratitude for everything.
