Celebrating Our Shared Journey
Summer Solstice June 21
Summer Solstice June 21
We generally go about our daily lives doing "our thing." Then when the call goes out, we come together as a community in service, or in celebration of a sacred event, or to honor the seasonal, lunar or celestial cycles. We do what we do without realizing how much of an impact it has on one another, on our community or on others in distant places who hear about it and who proclaim what we're doing is very unique.
Last month we celebrated Earth Day at Siesta Key Beach. More than 70 joined remotely with the indigenous tribal leaders and elders from all over the world who gathered for the Return of The Ancestors on Hopi lands in Arizona. This was no normal gathering of elders. They came from every continent to prepare the earth and to plant seeds for the great shift of humanity.
While working with Drunvalo Melchizidek's assistant on the elders schedule we talked about what we were doing locally. One story led to another as she listened intently to what happened here over the last three years. At the end of our last conversation she said it was an incredible story of a community and a city filled with a future vision and promise that needed to be told. She asked if I would write "our story" for the May issue of the Spirit of Maat - Drunvalo's monthly newsletter saying the May issue would be devoted to the Ancestor Gathering and what the people of earth could do from here forward.
This is what she wrote in the introduction: "Our May 2009 issue is dedicated to the thought that the magic pouring out of the April ceremonies has already started to open your hearts. All the articles are meant to bring your attention to what needs to change in your life. Many of them will call you to look at what has value to you. Some are more concerned with helping you understand how to deal with the influx of new feelings and thoughts that all of us are experiencing. Others ask you to ask yourself how much you are willing to see. The thunder that touched down in April will continue to roll long after the ceremonial fires die out. The Elders have done their part; now it's up to us to take whatever came out of the Ancestors Gathering into our lives and into our hearts. May every single one of our May articles give you pause to reflect upon where you stand with all of this and remind you where to keep the focus as we edge closer to 2012."
We think we simply do what we do! We know we live in paradise and we have an inkling that we're doing good work together in a lovely spiritual community. But we don't realize how unique we are until an outsider hears the story and relates it back that we're in an extraordinary place.
Our story is called Prism of Light and the Crystal City of Light. It's tells about our remarkable journey together over the last three years. We live in a sacred place. In numerology, we are a 22 vibration city, in an 11 state, with a 33 quartz crystal beach at our doorstep. The Keys of Enoch shows we're near the "heart of the dove" of the future earth. We've been on a grand journey that's just begun. It's a fine time to be alive on earth.
