Swimming with sharks

Trust is a word that gets abused, that sees us swimming in a sea of doubt. For how can we trust all that we see when all that we see pulls us from all that is true. How can we trust all that we are when all that we are is muted and silenced. How can we trust all that we are told when all that we are told is served on a plate of lies?

And so the sea of doubt that we swim in starts to wrap around our ankles, pulling us under, filling us with negativity and fear. As we find ourselves swimming with sharks, so too do we start to see that behaviour impacting our own thoughts, our own minds, our own actions. So too do we become the sharks that seek to feed on the carcass’ of our purity. So too do we lose ourselves to the sea of darkness that now engulfs our very being.

To set ourselves free from this darkness we must first see the darkness to which we have been engulfed. This is not an easy journey for when we are engulfed we are unable to see anything but that which we have been taught. We are unable to see the shackles around our ankles for we have been taught that those shackles are the keys to our freedom. The keys which keep us safe, gagged and bound. That hold us to all that we know, even when all that we know is darkness. 

How can we see the darkness when we have trained our eyes so well to become accustomed to it? How can we see the darkness when we have learnt to navigate our way through it? How can we see the darkness when we have not yet seen the light?

The light is coming for each and every one of us. We can not escape the light that now starts to shine so brightly within us. No longer will the light be subservient to the darkness. No longer will the light allow itself to be diminished by that which is less than it is. No longer will the light be unseen.

We are all beautiful rays of light, waiting to be seen, waiting to be heard. The light that now starts to engulf the darkness with its power and its velocity will emerge from us so vehemently that the darkness will have no choice but to lessen its grips. But for this to happen, we will have to go through the darkness. We can not go over it, we can not go under it, we can not go around it, for to be the light we must first transmute all that is dark within us and all that is dark around us. 

This may not be an easy task but all that I say can be achieved through the higher vibration of love. When we start to see through the eyes of love, instead of the eyes of the shark that our vision has been trained with, we start to recognise all that we are and all that we can be. We start to hear the gentle whisper of our soul as it asks us to recognise it, once again, in all of its power and all of its glory. We start to see our path gently unfold in front of us as it asks us to step fearlessly upon it. We start to see with open eyes.

When our eyes are open to all that we are and all that we can be, we start to shine that light of love deep into our own wounds. As we slowly, slowly, step by step, allow ourselves to become simply who we are, we naturally start to heal ourselves from all that has kept us under As we start to step into the power of who we are, we are then able to see the power of who the collective could be if only we could release ourselves from all that we have been taught.

When we connect with our soul, really and truly, we start to see that much of what we have been taught does not make sense. We start to recognise that all that we have been shown was given to us to keep us in our disempowerment, enslaved to a system that seeks to chew on our flesh and feed on our bones. But when we connect with our soul, really and truly, we also start to recognise that all that we have experienced is all that we have needed to experience to be free.

Freedom is the ultimate goal, to know ourselves in all capacities, through darkness and through light. To experience freedom in its truest form, we must first have been enslaved. To know who we are, we must first know who we are not. To come into oneness we must first have experienced separation from source. 

As we now work our way through the darkness and back into the light, so too will we experience ourselves in our fullness as we seek to set ourselves free from all that has kept us enslaved. So too shall we experience ourselves returning to source, with all of its wisdom and all of its joy. So too shall we see that all that we are and all that we can be is greatness. All we have to do is see. All we have to do is trust. All we have to be is us.
