Happy New Year! May We Rise In Integrity

me 2017

2016 was the year of loss and letting go, of people, beliefs, ideas and false hopes. And in these white hot fires of grief, steely backbone is forged. Some of us made it through. Many didn’t. We owe it to the Ones that didn’t to let the old world burn – not that we could hope to stop it now – while creating the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible from the ashes.

In 2017, may we rise in integrity and sovereignity.

May we see how powerful we really are, and step forward into service that is aligned with the highest good of all sentient beings.

May we protect our Mother Earth, through direct action and in the small, but significant daily choices we make.

May we find the courage to leave behind everything that does not serve our highest good.

May we finally realise that the outer can never, will never change without the conscious healing of the inner; and may we stride forward towards this healing with the sacred purpose of a warrior, in full knowledge that we will have to die a thousand tiny deaths on the path.

May we love ourselves and all others with a tender ferocity that is steadfast, unwavering, in the face of fear, bigotry and hate.

There is no time left for distraction, numbing out, avoidance and blame. That gig is OVER, as the year is behind us. May 2017 be the year that we begin to redeem ourselves; for no-one else is coming to save us.
