“We’re part of the unfolding world,— Rudy Rucker
surfing the chaotic waves.”
“Patience doesn’t mean— Sharon Salzberg
making a pact with the devil of denial,
ignoring our emotions and aspirations.
It means being wholeheartedly engaged
in the process that’s unfolding,
rather than ripping open a budding flower
or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and
get that chrysalis stage over with.”
You must be a lotus, unfolding its petals— Sai Baba
when the sun rises in the sky,
unaffected by the slush where it is born
or even the water which sustains it!
Today’s MotD reminds us that our lives are a process, a journey, an unfolding…moving at its own pace, in Divine order. Some parts unfold slower than others. Our challenge is to recognize the pace of our unfolding, to learn how to work with it, to understand that it’s possible that some things have yet to fall into place for our further unfolding.
Today’s MotD also encourages us to work with the unfolding of our hearts, allowing ourselves to feel and to heal. This imagery is likened to a bejeweled fabergé egg slowly opening, with even richer treasures inside, waiting to be revealed to the world in all its glory.
With purple being a crown chakra vibrational color, we can also think of it as our Higher Selves making their way into our 3D realm; full of insights and guidance…a higher vibrational treasure.
May the unfolding of our hearts bring us, and those around us, great joy.
