This is an opaque moment
by Sophia Love, published on February 26, 2019
Come to this banquet and feast. It is here where you’ll find what you’ve been looking for.
This moment now, the one that feels beyond your grasp? It is just what you’ve been expecting. It is all that you’ve been waiting for.
How could this be?
Dear, dear human. It is by your hand that this moment is crafted. It is with your intent that you feel as you do.
So deeply did you desire to assist and so eager were you for a visceral experience of your own evolution – that you ran to be first in line for this earth trip! And you’ve made it!
This far you’ve come, only to look around at your landscape and forget your own design?
The ego is a powerful paintbrush.
It holds onto each drop of color, knowing any minute the perfect placement will emerge. It waits, unpainted potential.
You notice, and hurriedly rush to coat it with, well, with you. Yet, right now those colors look wrong. No, not wrong yet out of place. Like the mustard yellows and olive greens of your grandmother’s kitchen.
These are yesterday’s hues… complaining, blaming, self-pity, self-absorption, righteousness, judgment, hoarding and hating. They no longer work.
Today requires a new pallet; more luminous and a bit less dense. Shades of understanding, patience, response, action, collaboration, humility, generosity and compassion create the look you seek.
These new colors need a skilled artist; yet this is why YOU hold the brush. Crises of the mind or health or heart or home or wallet require a gentler touch and a steady line. We can no longer merely layer and cover and hide what is there, no. Our light reflects and returns it all, brilliantly bouncing back our intentions. This is an opaque moment.
We see everything and decide with eyes wide open how it fits. Just what shades are necessary for it to feel as we envision?
This is your masterpiece. As others around you lament and judge and point and mourn and cry out, reach for your paintbrush to fashion the interpretation.
Tomorrow you’ll look back with a smile; satisfied and fulfilled while continually perfecting your craft. You are the ones you’ve been waiting for.
You have anchored the light. It is done.
