September Soul Insights - The Fool on the Hill with a Bit of Wisdom

Surprises........
Changes.........
This month expect the unexpected and be open to change and surprises on all levels.  Expect disruptions in your environment and routine, and for some in your mind.... New thought patterns are peeking through and for many people this starts an inner urge for major change.  This urge for change will definitely be for many in the area of their career and "work purpose".... You will want to define your life more and refine it to better suit your current needs, desires and Soul Expression....

Life is transition and change; however there are times when this is emphasized and prevalent.

September is about breaking up the monotony and being open to change.
Sounds pretty "matter of fact" and like an everyday truism; except that as "human beings" we not only don't like change we resist it.

Many people that I have met over the years that state:  "I love change. Change is just a part of life" are unfortunately many times the most "stuck" people that I know.  They really are not open to change, and many of these people think that change is having a lot going on.... This is not always reflecting change.

Change is first and foremost internal...It is a lot of feelings that are ambiguous at best and rising uncertainty, doubt and discomfort at the worst.  The "inside job" kind of change is when you begin to feel a subtle "pressure" that something in your life no longer quite fits the same. You also will feel, what spiritually is termed " Divine Discontent".... This longing, urging, nudging, prodding discontent is coming from your Soul.  It is the urge to grow and for more.

Sometimes the urge to grow or for more is actually a call for less.  To lessen your life load.  This lessening, thinning and pruning can be getting rid of "stuff".  However, when the deeper levels of this pruning come over you the "stuff" you will be getting rid of is also the need and use of titles, names, training, agendas.  The lightening that occurs requires a stripping down.  Many in the area of Self Development and Spirituality call this:  "Becoming childlike again and having child-like wonder".  The difference is now you have the wisdom, the life experience coupled with this wonder, awe, curiosity, openness.... It is child-like innocence coupled with wisdom.... This is why so many great Sages, Mystics and even the Buddha are tricksters and have such a great sense of humor.... They see and feel the absurdity and depth, the meaning and meaninglessness of life.... It is all full circle.

This month find ways to make peace and come full circle... Prepare to begin again, and this time with even more joy and openness.  It is the time of the "Fool".... The Fool sees the journey far ahead and embarks anyway... The Fool also underestimates the ETA, and what is on the path.  The Fool falls short and comes out even better than expected... And, this is key.... "Better than expected".... The Fool shows us our folly in planning, and yet we need to plan.... It is a form of folly to judge our circumstances and others because on a little self/ego level we don't and can't see the whole picture. It is folly to think we are alone or have to do 'it" all on our own.... It is folly to not ask for help. It is folly to dive into the waters of relationship and hope to not get our toesies wet...

It is folly  to think we have "arrived somewhere, or "think we are something" when we are always arriving and always becoming something"  On a Soul level we are always in an unfolding, and yet the purpose of the human ego is to maintain and stabilize what it perceives "we have become".... It is folly to think we are finished.....
See your folly and laugh... Laugh a deep belly laugh....

Take this month to find ways to see the circle of life and circuitous aspect of your life path. Notice what is repeating and find ways to bring peace, understanding and compassion to this; as well as gratitude.... Gratitude will move you along the spiral of light and life more completely and in more of a fulfilled manner.
Begin to "schedule in more play time"... See the absurdity in this - to "schedule in"... It is time to consciously live and integrate the duality of this Passion Play.

You cannot rise above what you cannot see....
