I love the subtle process through which we gradually become aware of things, kind of like a seed opening, kind of like dawn breaking.
I have a notion that we pick up things first in our bodies, through the skin, through the hair, (through the air), through the eyes, ears, fingers and toes, and of course, most directly through the heart. I have read that the heart has an auric field that extends beyond the body by 6 feet! It can sense things ahead of our conscious awareness, like the feeling in a room you are about to enter.
I don’t know if I ever really thought of myself as rebellious, but looking back, I see my mind was rebellious. I kind of just “feel” if something isn’t ringing true, and that’s made me question things a lot, making me something of a rebel after all, challenging the status quo. So many of us are doing this now!
Have you ever had a sense that you were born for this time? I have, even though I’ve also felt like I would have been happier living in an earlier, more traditional time. In the postmodern world, or today’s world, in which everything seems to be changing all at once, so many feel this sense of rebellion today.
And so it is that Sinead O’Connor’s “This Is My Rebel Song” a political song set as a love song, called out to me, a powerful, ringing call toward the living relationship to the world that we truly want. Maybe we didn’t realize how much we needed that. “Let glorious love be done!”
It is time.
