One of my favorite quotes is by Deepak Chopra and goes like this, “…as the proud children of science and reason we have made ourselves the orphans of wisdom.” This idea induces delicious banquets of thought and pondering in me.
We work and struggle and espouse lying voices, employing vast quantities of energy in denial, repression, doubt, and stress. It all begs the question, if we weren’t so engaged what would those liberated energies allow us? Deepak suggests, if that were the case, that our lives would be constant revelation.
There seems to be a clarion call afoot to see with new eyes and be willing to explore the many levels and dimensions that make up a living soul. Since the mid 1980’s the medical model that we are all so familiar with has also heralded new understandings about the independent intelligence of the smallest particles of our bodies. It was discovered that the immune and digestive systems showed signs of intelligence. There are special messenger molecules that are in all the organs carrying information to and from the brain—but also functioning with independent intelligence. It turns out that cells have been outthinking us for millions of years.
If our life is to be constant revelation, it would behoove us to look at the wisdom that lives right within our very bodies, and listen to what that wisdom is telling us. Our cells—and the universe all around us—are practicing basically the same things that we want for ourselves. They are achieving growth, expansion, and creation. The difference is that our bodies are cooperating with the invitations of Source much better than we—the conscious we—manage to. If, then, our bodies are showing or manifesting stress and dis-ease, wouldn’t it be a great jumping off point into the world of wisdom to listen to what it has to say about our well-being on all levels? If our cells are functioning to the call of wisdom, could they be trying to show us ourselves as a great mirror reflecting our welfare?
A thousand years ago Spirit was accepted everywhere as the true source of life. We are now finding our way back to that same intelligence after a long and lonely absence. It is time to learn a new language, and it is the language of the Spirit—of truth, of order, of learning, of wisdom, of God. It is time to remove our ceilings and reshape our path and passage.
My invitation this month is to just notice our inner wisdom speaking to us. GI Joe says that knowing is half the battle. I think he is wrong. I think it’s three-quarters of the battle. A genuine, authentic shift in our consciousness is an open door to revelation and real solutions.
And, from the desk of an Irish girl, may the luck of the Irish be with you this month.
