Yes to the Unknown

Oct 05, 2020 by Renee Linnell
Dear Beautiful One,
I haven’t written in a long time because I don’t have that much new to say. I have been patiently watching the world do what it is doing and trying my hardest to not get sucked into the drama, and the sadness, and the chaos. 
I have learned that anytime I need others to change so that I can feel better, I am powerless. The last seven months has been an intense training course in how to unwind my own mind, so that I can be at peace, regardless of what is going on in the world.
As you know, I have not worried about Covid. I simply cannot see it as the deadly virus our media longs for it to be. I realize that sentence may infuriate some of you (and if it does, please feel free to unsubscribe from my mailing list.) What has fascinated me most about the polarity of beliefs around Covid and politics is this: we really do create our own reality. Those living in a Covid-can-kill-us-all world are really living in that world. And those of us that are not truly know we have nothing to fear. Those living in a Trump world truly believe he is the most qualified leader. And those living in a Biden world truly believe he is. 
I think the only way to peace inside our own minds is to realize we are living in different realities. Shamans, Saints, and Mystics have been telling us this for thousands of years. Quantum physics is finally agreeing with it: there are billions of parallel realities. Our thoughts create our world.
I have decided I do not want to live in a world of fear. I do not want to hate my brother and sister humans who have different views than I do, who have created different realities. Yes, I hear some of you saying, “But you get to live in a pristine place where you are not as effected by what is going on.” And, yes, that is true. But, I also know that our minds are all connected. And that we are vibrational beings. And that the single best thing I can do for humanity is to not be afraid, to not be angry, to not dream a future I dread, and to not look at strangers passing me and believe they can kill me just by breathing near me. Also, in my defense, I have helped sponsor humanitarian projects all over the world and have spent the last 25 years working to change our legal system so that it does not target minorities. So, yes, I am helping. I am helping where I know I can, and I am staying out of it where I know my mind energy would just add to the anger and the chaos. 
I truly believe we are going through a Grand Awakening. That we are experiencing a massive remodel of Human Life on Earth and that, as in all remodels, we have to endure the mess of the old systems falling, the dust and debris from the crumbling, in order to build the new. Those in charge of the systems that harm the many in order to benefit the few will not surrender easily. We may see tensions rise in the next few months. But, rest assured, the Truth always prevails. Light always wins. And those who are manipulating the masses with fear-based messaging will be exposed. If we end up with a leader who is the worst of the worst, it is only because we need another wrecking ball to take down the last of the failing systems. Please believe me: we are so protected by the Creator who made us, and too many of us want the more beautiful world we all know is possible for us not to be creating it now. The control is in our hands. And the way we create a beautiful world is to dream that world first, imagine it first. Focus on the positive. Love ourselves and each other. As Ghandi said, 'Be the change we wish to see." 
I implore you to go within. To ask yourself what brings you joy and to do it. Stop making excuses for not having enough time and find a way to fit joy and fun into your daily routine. This is your life. Right now. And the more you can enjoy it, the more light you add to human consciousness. Make play a priority. Make love a priority. I just finished reading Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes (which I highly recommend.) If she can find time to play, everyone can. 
So many of us are waiting in order to truly live. Waiting for the big pay day, or for when the kids go off to college, or for when Big Pharma comes up with a vaccine, or for when the lover appears . . . We are missing our lives while we wait to live. I am also guilty of this. And so I catch myself, and I stop, and I say, “I want to be happy now. I want to live in joy now. I want to surrender into what Life is offering me now. Even if it is uncomfortable. Even if it is something that is making me sad, or afraid, or angry. I want to surrender into it because when I don’t, I miss precious moments of my life. Moments I will never get back.” Let’s try. Together. Let’s try to enjoy life now. To marvel at the craziness. And still to trust the Divine Plan. To breathe into the spaces that cause us to contract. To say “yes” to the Unknown. 
I’m doing this with you. I am learning right along with you. I am expanding in love, and trust, and patience, and faith along with you. It’s not that easy at times, but it sure is worth it.
