Deep down in the earthy soil where life exists, worms roam, ant holes organize armies and the root artery system of plant life stretch and reach to find water, there is a box called a ‘time capsule.’
Perhaps as a child you buried it deeply for a sense of fun, curiosity of what it might be like to rediscover it one day and to represent ‘a moment in time.’
If you were to surprise yourself today opening its contents
to see who you were, what you liked and saw what took over your psyche as ‘important’
to matter enough to be chosen to punctuate as your narrative for that moment in
time in your life in one small box, WHAT WOULD YOU SEE?
Whether or not you actually did this for yourself as a kid, be it in a Tupperware container or a metal kids’ lunch box, the truth is that inside of your brain, you have one of these for every single decade of your life, you just didn’t realize it.
While the dawn is quiet, still, peaceful and holding promise of a new day, there are birds singing their melodious arrangements with glee upon erasing said past, embracing present day with hope in their hearts for a better tomorrow. That's a nice thought, eh?
But the one thing none of us humans recognize is that they are only singing for today, and they’re not really chasing endless loop thoughts like carrots on a stick to nothingness for their tomorrow.
It is only the human who overthinks. The animal kingdom operates in present mode. Sure you see squirrels bury nuts for those cold winters, thinking ahead, but they are still conscious of today, they do not stay stuck in the past nor the future as much as doing what is in front of them today, no different than a bird prepares its nest. These are small acts which are part of daily life and whatever happens is accepted, with the universal laws that we can prepare, we can try to anticipate, but nature and time have its own course on our human destiny pathway of our journey for purpose and reason even if we don't understand it in real time.
Just as the morning dew kisses the leaves and flowers like a morning mist to cleanse the energy space, we humans emerge from our own shower/breakfast rituals slowly waking to greet whatever the day has in store, perhaps singing our own song, which differs in genre depending on where we find ourselves in our own time warp or altered timeline.
This ebb and flow of energy within our own existence is cognizant of our own position within space and time, no different than a time capsule buried deep beneath the soil. As we take on our daily “doing” list of what is in front of us, usually it isn’t looking back at a time capsule until at least a decade later when we are somehow forced to benchmark things chronologically, whether or not the soul adheres to the “concept of time.”
2020 felt like an upheaval for the world beyond said pandemic, tragic losses, violence, uproars and shaking up of our previous timeline. It was as if we had to excavate several time capsules at once from the earth like lined up several seasons of futuristic Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman lunch pails to examine at a time when most of the world wanted to just return to status quo.
Think about that for a second…The references are meant to twist your mind with the exterior tomorrow box reference, yesterday contents to see the present.
In other words, we were thrown a stack of history books from the last century with the extra credit of re-reading War & Peace, Moby Dick and asking ourselves some questions that were taking us back to our Sesame Street time capsule reviewing some old tapes of our innocence wondering what appeared to go awry when humanity’s mettle was tested once more.
Here we’ve revisited these time capsules which are resurrecting the truths of where we are in our own consciousness today, re-evaluating what we’d put into our current box and also singing like the birds only for today, searching for the notes of an unsung melody of tomorrow.
The gem in all this is that how we came into being with our organic dreams of where we started, unable to see said blind curves is how we’ve always lived. While we all may be attempting to prepare, the reality is that sometimes we don't know what we're preparing for.
Perhaps this is destined as in getting us to see there are things that are part of the journey for a reason beyond the sum of its parts to show us something we did not see the same way before.
The truth is that all of the above of what I have written has always been the cycle of our lives, it just has not been put under the microscope and magnified this greatly for most walking zombie humans to recognize, see, address, acknowledge, accept, and want to change more consciously than ever before.
Humanity’s metamorphosis now is in transition.
How will yours look?
This may be a simple question that has both answers hitting you like your previously chugged morning java jolt ‘in pandemic past life.’ Or maybe you are quietly sitting and sipping now savoring every note. Whether or not your energy is new all depends on what your lifestyle was like before or in fact how you’ve evolved to change yourself to take on your day.
The energy of the early morning today is not like it used to be pre-pandemic, whether your human behavior has changed perhaps only because other people HAVE changed to shake up the dynamic equation of what you experience in your outside world.
Old habits you might have had to start your morning could have taken a 180 degree turn; while new habits you slowly accumulated over and through Covid, may have changed your life for the better.
Was the Universe getting you to see something you were too blind to see?
Or was the Universe showing you a better way do taking on your day with new rituals so you don’t miss out on what life is presenting at every moment?
Wherever you are in your transformation or evolution is all about the ‘changed experiences’ you have an opportunity to examine – whether you accept/receive them or repel them… the fact that this energy is even here is showing you something significant.
Wherever you live, you might have noticed that our re-emergence has a different vibration, a softer slipper step of sorts, a less-rushed intention whenever you step outside your door or merely nowadays gaze outside your window, which you are cleaning more often because you have time to bother to look out of it.
All of this shift has changed people’s mindfulness to reclaim a piece of their lost selves, or course-correct what they needed to examine, or pushed/forced into adapting/adjusting to because we’ve been in a pandemic.
Do you like the changes you’re seeing?
Are you aware of what has and hasn’t changed with every step you take within the 24-hour period you are given in this thing called life?
Yes, there will always be some things that won’t change – like traffic and busy places, but there is a more mindful and consciousness intention-base to our actions. It is a far cry from the panic-stricken rush/push that we had years ago, when the pulsating rhythm of an engine revving greeted our everyday grind of caffeinated mornings, speeding to get from A to B and not paying attention to what may be beside us, in front of us, ahead or behind us.
Is this here to stay?
While humanity is itching to “return” to something, let’s be reminded once more that while that previous pandemic vibe may have given us some sort of energy or excitement, just because things have slowed down for more careful, health and safety imperatively imposed actions does NOT mean that we’re losing something by being more conscious. In fact, it is just the opposite.
Some may argue that the past energy ‘gave them life’ – weren’t we ‘missing’ things within that said rush, because we were so focused on finish lines?
Part of the humanity shift in greater consciousness awareness is designed to give everyone an opportunity to return to the simple pleasures and joys of missed life as described in the first paragraph of this blog. That may just be one example, but paying attention to the energy that constantly exists can be a part of our revival to change what we need to do in a decompression of unnecessary inner dialogue (the stress-filled, jumping five hours or days ahead dialogue) to a well-designed taking each day as it comes dialogue.
This part has also always been available to all of humanity. Some have missed it. Others weren’t aware it existed, too busy trying to control outcomes of things. While others only ever had this as a way of living because of certain events earlier in life that had them look at it even before the pandemic hit.
Whichever group you identify with in terms of your own self-awareness inner dialogue – you too, have also made a shift in some aspects of your perception about ‘what the day will bring’ – in how you may have digested life previously.
This may be a confusing time, but I am hoping that all of the above which has flowed out of my human Muppet can help clarify the process of our own individual and collective evolution as we step into what is in store for us today.
Lovely Souls, we are truly in a New Age now… and while it may have been sprung upon all of us unexpectedly, if we are still indeed here, we are being shown something where we can dare to look at life through new eyes. What we choose to put in our biodegradable, earth-friendly time capsules today to benchmark this metamorphosis is up to us and still representative of who we are, with just a tad more light being shed on who we’ve become during this time.
You are the architect. Make your next time capsule a good one.
Sending love and light and wishing you the best insights.
Stay healthy, stay safe and know that you are on your way.
