Our healing ability is to redefine time – to move past the concept of being “late to the party”, late getting started in life. For time is an unimportant construct, a feature to organize, but not one to be worshipped. The perfect time to do something with oneself is NOW. You have not missed the boat, nor did you leave it too late – too old to start something new – not at all. This would be most terrible not to start because of some naysayer telling one “you are too old to start”. Everyone’s journey is different, all paths are unique. Some start, then stop, then start again, but the learning and growth take place along all sections of the path. It is important to remember that the linearity you live is not the rule of the universe. It is only on this plane that it exists. The linearity is a tool to serve you, not anything else. You are the driver of your experience, and all your decisions are in perfect time.
The healing and balancing we can impart is more in the area of certainty. The certainty you feel when you strike out on a path, a new direction in your life. This moment is always a challenging one, and it’s appropriate that a certain reserve of will be created, in order to have the impetus to stretch out of the known and well trodden path. As a plant expression, we have no fear of growing in new places and have easily adapted to many new environments and growing locations in this garden. Likewise, we can assist in opening up to new experiences and instill a sense of confidence in trying new things.
It is but a matter of pacing on this plane. For each life has active points of growth and change, balanced with quiet periods. Those who attempt to force through the quiet periods will find themselves in enforced quiet through the balancer of illness. True, it is possible to push past all these things, but the wiser course is to harmonize with the deeper rhythms.
Our essence is a good choice to use when there is a period of reflection. These periods will be of shorter duration if you would attend to them with full attention. You see, it is a tendency to fill them with busyness in order to not experience the stillness. The stillness is a place to rest and reflect, to learn from the growthful places, to gain perspective and wisdom from the life lived.
