The title of today’s article was supposed to be “The Burden Of Others Is Not Your Own”. The inspiration for the article came to me during my yoga and meditation practice.  However, once I sat down and began to write, nothing that I had scripted during my morning practice made any sense.  I questioned all the parallels, all the examples, all the witticisms.  We are all One and the world seems to be waking up to that absolute truth.  As such, the old rules no longer apply and the new rules are not yet formulated.  I don’t know what the new rules will be, but I do know that the new rule book will be much less complicated.


Most of the anger and fear I see stems from the ever widening gap between those that cling to the way it has always been and those that grasp for the way it will soon be.  Up is clearly down as we find our way in this new world.


The old rules were set.  Everyone knew how to act.  Boundaries were drawn, responsibilities were assigned and life was good if not predictable.  Right was right and wrong was wrong.  No gray areas.  But now we have combat ready police dropping their arms and embracing the unruly demonstrators.  We have politicians on both sides of the aisle not taking a stand because they don’t know where the wind is coming from much less which way it is blowing.  We have yogis that are clearly out of their minds blowing kisses to those in the middle of a road rage breakdown.  We have ordinary people preaching peace, understanding and love on this thing called the internet.  Yes, the old rules no longer apply, but we will have to be patient while everyone gets up to speed.


It is still true that we cannot judge the beliefs and perceptions of those around us.  We still can’t see the forest for the trees, so judgement of any kind will always be inherently flawed.  So what can we do?


All of us that resonate with the absolute truth that we are indeed One are meant to be here now.  We are starseeds, wayshowers, and lightworkers.  We are here to show others the way in what can be a confusing and frightening time.  Humanity is expanding its consciousness, humanity is evolving.


We are here to live by example, blaze the trail into the jungle of new rules and hold the Light as others find their way.  Yes, everyone must find their own way.  No one can do it for anyone else.


Live by example means just that.  Live your life in Love and Light, always recognizing that same Light in everyone that shares your path.  Everyone.  No exceptions.


Blazing the trail can be hard.  It can be lonely.  The jackals are sitting on the rocks overhead just waiting for you to stumble and fall so that they can have a good laugh.  They will tell you the old way is best and that you are a fool.  That’s OK, they just don’t understand.


Holding the Light is the most important and selfless act you can do.  Every last one of us must find our own way.  We must all raise our frequency on our own as we evolve in the Light.  No one can do it for us, no one can hold our hand.  However, by definition, raising one’s frequency or vibration means expansion.  It means expanding in the Light to a new understanding of being.  It is with that new understanding that you can embrace the new rules.


Holding the Light means to radiate higher vibrations of Light and Love to all that walk with you.  It is done without expectation or recognition.   It is done so that it is easier for others to expand into the new space that your Light and Love has opened.  We are all One and it is in that Oneness that you offer your assistance.   You will never know all those that you assist along the way.  Think of it as a huge bubble bath!  As those first bubbles form they break the surface tension of the water so that it is easier for more bubbles to follow.  Each bubble is in charge of itself but is it only after all the bubbles form that the bath is ready.


Now we are doing yoga….
