A little while ago we talked about the dragonfly larva that crawls up a stem from
a life submerged underwater into a life in the air. We mentioned how it will sit waiting for the sun towarm its body before it hatches out. Then it will sit some more as its wings dry. Then it takes to the air and flies.
I know that just recently you have been seeing lots of dragonflies and, given how we both feel (which is that nature sends us messages each moment of each day) I thought it would be fun to look at how all these dragonfly messages tie in with our recent posts on non-resistance, trust and “going with the flow”.
You put it just perfectly last time: resistance is futile – and a doorway to freedom. I guess the dragonfly is a perfect example of this. It goes through a huge shift, yet it never resists the outcome of its actions. Instead it follows the call of its instincts, pulled inexorably upwards from the liquid environment it has known as its home and taking wing because it knows that is the only way to go.
Let’s open this out a little. Movement is at the heart of everything. Nothing stays
static, not even for one moment. Not one cell of your body, not the room you
are sitting in now, nor the yard outside, nor the woods, the hills or the
fields…not one single thing in the whole universe is totally still right now. Even
the spaces between are forever moving to the dance of the Game of Life.
Within you and me and everything else there lies a subtle sound, a frequency
that creates all this movement. It draws us all together, uniting us in its
resonance no matter where we were born or what our upbringing taught us.
I believe that as we transition into following the ways of the Divine Design, this
frequency becomes more apparent, because we start to fully trust our intuitions.
The reason is real simple. Intuition means to be “taught from within”. But within
what? Within the body, yes, but where does the body end and space begin?
Where is the separation between what’s inside and what’s “outside” it?
The answer is that there is none! Separation is just an idea. It doesn’t really exist.
We don’t end where our bodies end. We just keep on going! The difference is that we can’t see the bits of us that are outside our bodies: but we know that they
are they. They’re out there, forever fingering the world around us, millions of waves of electro-magnetic energy, learning, processing and giving us instant
feedback to what’s happening not just nearby, but as far away as you can imagine too…
We’re hardwired into this world of feedback, no matter how much we might try to deny it!
So, when we follow our intuitions we are being taught both from within and without. We’re listening to the part of us that reaches in and in and in – and we’re listening to the part of us that goes out and out and out. The secret is to know that both parts of us touch every atom of matter, each moment of time. We’re truly interconnected.
I believe you are right, Gaye. This is a time when plenty of us are waking up from
the collective slumber that we have been in. It’s a time when our perceptions
speed up as we evolve and adapt to new ways of doing things.
We’re each of us like the dragonfly, moving out from the parameters of an old
way of doing things. And our ability to change the course of the future from one
in which we destroy the fragile balance of the planet around us to one in which
we can survive and thrive may well depend on how well we learn to listen to the
messages all around us, the messages of the Spirit Within and the Spirit
It could just be that it’s birth-time for the human race. If so, it’s a birth that will take us to places we cannot as yet be sure of. But it has to be worth emerging
from the pond. It has to be worth letting our wings dry, as they surely will,
before we take off on the next stage of our adventure, not knowing where we
will land, but enjoying our new-found agility, taking deep breaths of a new
kind of air, our multi-coloured bodies shining in the sunlight…
Will we learn to heed the call of the Spirit Within and the Spirit Without? Will we return to the ways of our ancestors, who knew all too well that there is no such thing as separation between one life and another and that the natural world around us truly does tell us all we need to know? I think so, yes.
We just have to be humble enough to re-learn the proud art of asking for its guidance – and then taking actions that are 100% in line with what’s best for us all.
With my love and best wishes,
