The Springtime of Your Soul
It is the springtime of your soul and you do not wish to “have to” do anything other than watch flowers and trees bloom.
So it is you find yourself irritated with those who attempt to have you conform to their idea of what is right for you.
Those of you reading this message in the southern hemisphere are even more confused with your need to play, to be, despite many activities requiring your services.
Playing in the dirt planting flowers is likely labeled fun now. While working in a stuffy office feels uncalled for or unpleasant. You feel as you did as a child when you were ill watching your friends play in the sunshine as you lay on your bed pining for your release.
Playtime is now your focus Even when you vacation, you will discover you have different interests than was true just months ago. You will likely not have a need for deep conversations or indoor activities. Instead, you will pine for the outdoors, for the freedom to run in the green grass and sunshine.
Of course, you laugh at our comments for you are a dedicated, self-motivated earth adult who always attends to your responsibilities despite any longings to run or play.
Such was who you were, but you will soon discover, if you have not already, that responsibilities do not seem fun or achieve the attention they once did.
Those of you responsible for young children or surrounded by adults not yet enamored of the freedom to play that you are now feeling will question your actions and words.
And do not be surprised if you find yourself pouting if your outside or fun activities are curtailed.
You no longer feel like the mature adult you forced yourself to be despite your misgivings along the way. Who wishes to earn a certain livelihood so others and you can be cared for, housed, and fed? Why is it your responsibility to care for others? When and why did those tight parameters of shoulds and have tos become you?
So it is you question your daily routines. Not because they are terrible, but because they are no longer you. You have become more childlike, more ready to laugh and play. And less interested in required tasks that are no longer fun.
What will happen to you and your family? What will happen to your society if you and others drop out? What indeed, for doing so will require you, and others like you, to create new worlds, directions, and playtimes.
Perhaps such a thought is horrifying for you were trained throughout your life to persevere, to be responsible.
Some of you attempted a playtime life in the 60s and 70s only to redirect your energies to what and who others thought you should be. Others of you never allowed yourself to play, even as a child. For you dedicated your efforts to who you were supposed to be, instead of who you are.
So it is your child-centered life has returned with the added elements of understanding your world differently and likely, better.
As a child, most of you assumed you would be fed and cared for in a timely fashion. As you matured, you realized that your mantle, your role was to feed and care for those younger than you. So it went earth generation after generation.
Those few adults who allowed themselves to play, dream, and imagine instead of working as they were expected to, were labeled an oddity. Of course, there were actors and other beings who allowed themselves to play roles in a child-like fashion, but even they adhered to the need to be better or wealthier than others. Establishing competitions within fields of study and work, neighborhoods, families, and relationships. Unlike children too young to do anything but play until they no longer wish to play.
Granted, competition may be the result of who has the sand pail, but all in all, most young children do not care about much more than having fun until something is no longer fun.
So it is for you now.
Competition is valid when you believe there is a limitation of anything. But if you can create whatever you wish, and you can, there is no need for competition, just the need to play with your skills to learn new ways to interact with new playmates.
Many of those you once interacted with, are not yet be able to play without competition or needs. So it is you are beginning to define new you in new ways.
The obvious question is whether those you elect to play with will honor new you or will you seem so “odd” that most will refuse to interact with you? A question that cannot be answered until you allow yourself to be. For this thought of fully becoming you in play and fun, is so radical that those of you reading this message are likely frightened.
Do you not understand how far you have shifted from your original intent prior to entering the earth in this lifetime and other lifetimes? For accepting the earth assignment you are excited about, means you might be ostracized by those you love. Not because you are cruel or acting abnormal, but because you dare to claim your being in the sunshine and play.
Actions many of you started but were afraid to follow-through decades ago. So you turned to drugs to understand your feelings and then to the dictates of previous generations. Fun was no longer about laughing in the sunshine, but instead making the most money or having the right kind of friends or the best job, etc. All outer-directed activities that have little to do with your inner sunshine.
Which returns us to the question of how do you live in fun and laughter when most are competitively focussed?
Allow yourself to be and you will discover how – for your laughter and joy will create what you need when you need it. Not because you have to eat, but because you have to live. And the only way you can now live is in joy. So be it. Amen.
