There's been something I've known my whole life.
I didn't know that I knew it.
I saw it in lilacs.
I smelled it in the air.
I saw it when I stared at the sun on my purple mountain majesty.
When I got older, I felt it when the lone piano would start to play a song that caused the whole congregation to sway.
And in all of my cells as the 200 people around me burst into the same song.
I perceived it in the way the stranger came up beside us, opened up his car door to rescue our young, American bodies from the Chinese throng when we were so obviously scared and lost.
I saw it in the drawings of Brian Andreas.
And in the words of Anita Moorjani.
I found it again in Eat, Pray, Love, and kept following Elizabeth Gilbert as her words painted my internal pictures.
I tripped over it again in the freed words of Rob Bell.
And then I forgot about them.
Until the day I went to an Energetic Synthesis of Being class with Dain Heer.
Every five minutes I was in tears as I recognized everything I'd ever known to be true.
I hadn't known it was "true".
I just knew that those energies had moved me more than any others and that they'd followed me all the days of my life.
I experience those same energies in every Right Voice for You class I ever go to.
In so many of Blossom Benedict's posts.
So, what are they? These unnamed energies that keep "following" me?
Me. They are me.
They are everything I know is possible.
They are the gratitude that fills me. The vulnerability I continually choose. The trust I ultimately have in me. The honoring of everything I am. The allowance for everything that is -- everything I ever choose.
The Christianity I know -- the one that is true for me is filled with gratitude. Deep with vulnerability. Thick with trust in me. Deeply allowing for everything and everyone. Honoring of all.
It has always been so for me. It is totally separate from blind faith or belief. And incredbly close to the Jesus I read about in the Gospels.
But it has nothing to do with whether or not that is right or not.
The Christianity I know is as far from right or wrong as the heavens are from the earth.
The Jesus I continually pour my gratitude out to judges nothing -- includes everything.
And is eerily similar to the consciousness I tear after.
I do not know what a conversation around this will open up for you.
What I do know is that a world free of judgment is a world I'm interested in creating.
I am incredibly interested in creating places where we can get free.
And wholly dedicated to creating spaces where your voice -- what you know -- can have a chance to break free and greet the morning.
And I can't wait to watch you fly.
