I watched the last episode of BBC’s Merlin on Saturday night. I am the ultimate kid when it comes to anything to do with myths, legends and fairytales.
Merlin was wielding the sword of Avalon forged in the fire of a dragon’s breath. That really resonated with me and a seed was planted. Little things have been popping in and out of my head since then.
All of us are swords of light forged in the fire of a dragon’s breath. Life in this dimension is hard it doesn’t matter how pleasant or difficult you’ve had it. The harsh reality that we have collectively created tempers the steel from which we are made.
All of us, without a doubt, have played a part in this stage upon which our play is set, even those "evil" dudes who are greedy or causing environmental problems. Without them or any negative emotions we wouldn’t have been able to experience the worst in order to know the best. How can you know love unless you’ve been exposed to fear? Duality is the name of the play in which we all have a starring role.
Stop and think about this. Is Lucifer really evil? Or is he playing the part of the evil mastermind dragging us to the depths of our feelings, giving us a chance to really, really experience. How can you temper a sword to be resilient unless you melt it down, and reshape it?
The trick in this situation is to be able to pull yourself out of the chaos much like being in the middle of a storm at sea. You try to swim for land but are tossed about and when you eventually reach the coast you’re then bashed against the rocks. Finally you drag yourself up on to the rocks exhausted, shivering, in shock and completely broken down. Sunk in misery you wait for the worst to come but...the storm fades away and the sun breaks through the clouds warming you and your raw body. Ah, the pleasure of the sun relaxing your muscles, you sigh in contentment and feel grateful to have come out relatively unscathed. You now know what you don’t want and can concentrate on what you do want.
If you compare a storm to Lucifer – was it evil, horrible or any other negative word you could think of? Or was it giving you the experience so you could make an informed choice?
It comes down to choices. What are you choosing?
Ramblings about life . . .
What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.
Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.
It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.
Be the dream.
We honour the light and the life within you.
