Sometimes the road calls to us. This summer I took a road trip that not only allowed me to see many loved ones, but brought me closer to the truth of ALL, to that which is within, and in the process, it allowed me to renew and re-vision my life in Attunement.
Through the beaches of Santa Barbara, California, the Rocky Mountains, the rivers of Southwest Colorado, the Red Rocks of Sedona, AZ, then through New Mexico back around again to the flowering desert oasis of Joshua Tree, California, I spent time with dear friends and family, and my heart filled.
Through Attunement, I was able to accept with gratitude whatever the day presented. On this journey, I specifically welcomed what life brought in the ability to recognize myself as a sacred site, a temple of grandeur, soliciting an invitation with no RSVP necessary. How refreshing!
While in Santa Barbara celebrating July 4th, I was able to attend the showing of a documentary film titled: Pieces I AM, featuring the life and philosophy of Nobel Literacy Prize winner Toni Morrison. Past interviews with Toni were highlighted in this film, revealing the extraordinary qualities she had, to speak forthrightly about being a black woman in America, while addressing other social issues inclusively with a personal nature of authentic surround.
A Toni Morrison quote from this film, “If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it,” came to exemplify both my meditations and my journey. I trusted in Source, I lived in Attunement and through many miles of solitude, I experienced an expansion of my heart, what I have come to know as Living Attunement. I understood in a new way that I was creating anew each day.
As I returned home, I found myself yearning for the familiar. Living with my daughter, her husband, and my four young grandsons, I missed the boisterous activity of our everyday. After arriving, the next morning I awakened to the sound of four little voices speaking with the natural enthusiasm of youth, “Grandma you’re home!” My heart continued to expand, and their voices were music to my ears.
Listening for, then surrendering to the call, in my case, a road trip, brings in unexpected bounty in learning again the joy of patience, kindness, understanding, compassion and enlightened consciousness, both as expressed and received.
I was blessed to experience the ONENESS with the Spirit of the Living God: the Glory of the Divine that is ATTUNEMENT.
