I just had an interesting experience happen to me last Sunday. I was at the Sweat You Prayers Five Rhythms dance, and towards the end of it when the music got to be soft and deep I had a flash of myself from the far future. I was seeing myself being over 80 years old, long grey hair, being in a very sunny place laughing and full of joy. I greeted myself and expressed my appreciation and wonder at such a connection. The old me lovingly looked at me and gave me the most expressive advice with just pure being. It was simple, yet deeply profound - "Don't take it all too seriously". I understood on so many levels what that really meant, and it sunk into my being. We just spent some time together with that, and I also asked for council on how to be with shame and fear. The answer I got was again not in words, and it was something about developing a relationship and being with the specific thing that is the cause rather than trying to grasp the abstract big picture. I'm still pondering that one. After a little while, the experience faded and left me in a very beautiful and present space.
... Don't take it all too seriously!
Love & Light,
