Anna Zimmerman writes of her awareness on awakening with spontaneity and joy.
“Awareness on awakening: My spirit has been restored to joy. I feel the child I was, the spirit I came in as, and I feel the circle that’s been made. The journey felt arduous at times, and it felt miraculous at times, and it was all part of the process of exploring life in the human. And now I have the opportunity of sharing my Self with others in community and expanding joy in this world.
The world is coming to joy, that’s why there is so much resistance. And the resistance is dissolving and will shift and loving kindness will prevail. This process is strengthening us, like the butterfly faced with working its way out of the cocoon.
The old habits of looking for what’s wrong, fixing things and people, have served us well. They were useful for their time and their time is passing. We are being restored to who we truly are. Trusting. Knowing. Loving. Dancing, singing, playing—at times, outward and inward, and cherishing stillness that feeds our souls as the foundation for who we are at other times. Loving kindness for ourselves and all other sentient beings and all materials of life, all substances that make up our world, even and maybe especially chocolate.
