This morning I was listening to my favorite layperson’s astrologer, Kaypacha Lescher, on this week’s energy influences affecting us (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKSKz3d03eI&feature=share ) and he said a few things that resonated with me that I wanted to pass along to anyone else who might be interested.
We, as all our ancestors before us have done, are trudging the path of evolution; and no matter how essential it is that we all do this, it’s not an easy trek, especially in these latest energies flooding our lives at present.
During that somewhat difficult evolutionary life-journey, he said we must realize that taking life’s final bow while expelling one last breath isn’t the major achievement of a life well lived: “It’s not about reaching the goal, but grasping the “process of becoming” (that matters), so we can share, teach, and make it happen for us all together.”
I considered that statement: “Grasping the ‘process of becoming’.” What does that really mean?
He elaborated on the importance of being here NOW: That this moment is where we presently are—being stretched thin between who we were in our past and who we will become in our future. And the only place you can make any course adjustments for your journey, is in the NOW.
NOW—this moment—this time period, affects your path forward in every possible way.
NOW can make a course correction in your life by taking that first simple step in a completely different direction.
“In fact,” as Kaypacha further explained, “The key point between the sameness of your past and an entirely different future is your NOW.”
Meaning that if you aren’t happy about where your life presently is or what baggage your past actions have accumulated and you want to find deeper meaning to your life—to your reason(s) for being here, then do so right NOW because this moment is the gateway to the person you are next becoming.
The “becoming” itself is the most important part of the entire consideration here because it implies you/we are mid soul-state change. We are “evolving” into something other than what we presently are.
Evolution is one of those words we think only applies to Darwinian beasties who laboriously crawled from the ocean on leg-like fins, or swung from the trees supported by long tails that no longer exist.
But evolution simply means a process of changing from one mode of operation to another that is more productive and likely more survival-oriented for the species.
Personal evolution can also be both more productive and survival focused, but it can also apply to living a life that is more meaningful to us.
It is important for us to fully realize that we, as individuals and as a self-aware species, are “in the process of becoming”—but that we aren’t already there. Legs on that fish didn’t appear mid-crawl, nor did chimps walk upright after a revelatory dream in the night.
We need to give ourselves the space and time to spiritually/mentally/emotionally evolve and recognize that the person we are right now will likely not be the same person that we are soon going to be.
Our forward movement just depends on that conscious choice to maximize this very moment by stepping boldly in the direction we NOW wish to travel.
Grasp the evolutionary process itself, but more importantly, grasp the opportunity to make course corrections in the NOW that you are being provided.
Rather than wasting time in regret of your unpleasant past or speculation on a too-distant future, use NOW as the forward action toward your dreams.
You are “becoming” whomever it is that you wish to be.
