As I write this on November 26th, Thanksgiving has come and gone. In my family we added a new tradition for this holiday. We lifted up and gave honor to all those family members who have come before us, shared their life with us, and have passed on. It was a beautiful witness.
This was my first Thanksgiving without Judy’s physical presence, however her spiritual presence was with me and has been with me in many ways. The Field of Compassion to me is about the connectivity that is present within our souls and the entire creation. The “field” to me, is taken from the mystic stance that we are all connected as one creation. The morphogenic field of love is composed not only of our current energy field that we add too, but also from all those that have come before us and helped to lay the groundwork for who we are and what we have become. Now the baton has been passed on to us. We can take the stance to sit back and let things happen or take an active role by co-creating in concert with the Holy Mystery. I believe we do this by connecting to the essence of who we are. But, before we can take the baton we must speak of love.
At the center of the “field” in my view is love. Judy says it so well, “God creates in order to give God’s self away in love”. She also writes, “We can glimpse the depth of love that fashions us, we can recognize where we came from, and we can respond by allowing love entry”. Allowing love entry is the difficult part.
Judy is asking me to receive the gift of love from all of you. She is telling me that in order to love, I must receive love. Why is this so difficult? Judy hits the nail on the head when she writes,” Receiving love brings us to a point of vulnerability. That is why it is so difficult”. When we are able to receive love, love tells us who we are. For me, it is easier to run from love rather than to accept it. When I run, I am no longer vulnerable, and it keeps me from knowing the true essence of who I am . The ego has won out and love has lost. Judy, however, is asking me to be the receiver of love so that I can give love. She asks of me the question, how can I give what I have not received?
If I stop and think of all the people who have been in my life and have come into my life over the past months and who simply came to give love, it would be life changing. It has in fact been life changing. The “field” that Judy writes of is in fact love. I believe in order for our evolving to manifest in a greater way, we must be willing to allow ourselves to be the receivers of love. We must look at the people who have entered our life and accept that we can open our heart to the vulnerability of being loved so we can become love. When we become love, the strength of that vibration reverberates through the entire planet. The love shines and radiates its warmth.
The action for this week is to allow ourselves to become vulnerable, become aware of the love we are and effectively enhance the vibration of love over the universe.
