Much can be accomplished today one step at a time with consistent effort–the conditions are exactly right for that (no matter which day you read this–divine timing, you know.) This NOW is the moment to reach for the stars. Be courageous, make effort but anchor yourself in the rich soil of the earth while doing so. Effort—always! This is Ascending (Ascension); it is pushing upward and using every small action, everyday life itself, in an important way. This is how we rise to higher levels not only in consciousness but also in our day-to-day affairs; there’s no difference between the two anyway. Energy of the psyche must act—it is ‘never not’ acting in one way or another, either to our detriment or benefit. It’s like in astrology—those trine and square aspects.
Trines are opportunities to act but we can be lazy and not take advantage, but no matter because eventually the square comes and then the pressure is on and something’s got to give. It’s our choice–do it the easy way or be forced to do it. Today I’m doing housework and if I didn’t keep up with it, that’s my choice–but eventually I’d be forced to, right? Think of that TV show about hoarders and you’ll get the picture; its like pay now or pay later, but eventually it catches up. And NO, I’m not a hoarder just in case you are thinking that but we all have to go through rooms and do deep cleaning and tossing periodically–that’s my meaning. Life gives us opportunities and supports certain actions and if we don’t make best use of the opportunity, eventually we’ll be forced. Observation and correlation, right? That seems to be how it works if we just look around us. Anyway…
The message for today is that this is a positive day (no matter what day you read this!) wherein things can be easily achieved but EFFORT is necessary one needs to push steadily toward the light just like the plant anchored in rich soil pushes up and breaks through to reach new heights. If we sit back on our haunches and wait for a jezus to save us or the spaceships to land, we’re wasting the opportunity that this time has for us to make progress, gain confidence—we are guided to accept the challenge of the moment and keep on working. Effort—always!
The I-CHING Kua 46 is called “Pushing Upward” or “Advance” brings forth the message that even the most difficult goals can be achieved if we break them down into simple easy steps. But we must take those steps!
We ‘are’ on earth after all and being grounded and applying steady effort is the name of the game in this reality—there’s no escaping it. So, what applies today is that old adage “a journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step”; we must not become discouraged.
Everyday Life Itself is our teacher and we must not turn away from it trying to escape or wait for someone to save us—we have to keep moving one step at a time while examining each step and where it takes us and discovering if that’s the direction we should go being aware and conscious in each moment so we stay on the right path.
It is a time of action and all past struggles that have been part of your journey have led you to this opportune moment. Remain empowered and keep applying effort until you push through to birth a new part of yourself. If you wait for the spaceships to land or for a god to save you, you will be missing a valuable opportunity to use earth experiences to ascend into light.
We all can become overwhelmed with the challenges of earth living from time to time. Sometimes when I look at my financials I feel that way and in other mundane examples the lawn full of leaves that need to be raked as more come down by the second! (That exact thing with the leaves is happening right now as I type these words.) I have closets to clean and a garage collecting some minor clutter (but still!) that needs to be gone through and cleaned, things tossed and tidied up; the thought of all that can be overwhelming. There are times that I become triggered and a flood or worry or fear will swoop in showing me that I still have such a long way to go to achieve that continual state of peace that I desire–this can leave me feeling discouraged if I let it.
These earth experiences can be exactly what I need to use, to examine, to vow to use at that one-step-at-a-time pace using applied effort to Ascend into Light.
Steady progress helps us to gain confidence on our journey toward light, and examining our steps and making conscious effort is what helps us live that heaven upon the earth (unless you are waiting for jezus or the spaceships that is).
Reaching for the stars with our feet firmly anchored in the rich soil of everyday life experiences of earth–that’s a formula for ascension.
BOTTOM LINE: Remain encouraged; apply continued effort, one step at a time. All conditions are supporting you. Hang in there!
