“The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned. It enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.” – Dietrick Bonhoeffer, German Theologian
Read his biography; things did not turn out so well for him…but his crusade against Hitler was indeed a noble one.
From Wikipedia: Dietrick Bonhoeffer, February 4, 1906 – April 9, 1945, was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian. He was also a participant in the German Resistance movement against Nazism, a founding member of the Confessing Church. His involvement in plans by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler resulted in his arrest in April 1943 and his subsequent execution by hanging in April 1945, shortly before the war’s end. His view of Christianity’s role in the secular world has become very influential.
You might be interested in reading about this fellow, to me, an interesting, interesting man. To have such courage, vision, drive and spirit is inspiring to me. I aspire to be so resolute, independent minded, confident and strong.
I’m linking optimism and a look forward this morning when I again, just can’t sleep.
So where are we now? Where are we now in this process of becoming, of arriving into who we’re meant to be, and what can we expect in times to come? I on occasion tune into the folks who seem to have a more direct line to visions upcoming. I know a 10 year old too who predicts and is notable in his accuracy of events to come. I think we all have a measure of psychic ability, some though seem to have a greater ease in tuning in to that frequency.
So, from noted ‘seer’, Karen Bishop, thoughts on where we are….where we may be going collectively, certainly in our surrounds…perhaps this resonates with you.
‘It may feel very empty right now, with some kind of a dis-connect now present, but this is only because we are smack in the middle of the process of connecting to ourselves. The higher realms now, is very much within us, and this is the process we are currently undergoing. This is where we need to connect, in order to create our very new foundation.
We are in the process of remembering who we are and why we are here on this earth. We are in the process of remembering what we came here to do and to be. And this process will unfold all on its own, as we ground more fully into the New Earth. From the bottom up, every cell in our bodies will slowly fill up with these soul memories, with no real effort required. This will occur now with more rapidity, as the earth has now come to rest in her true and rightful new position in the cosmos. Therefore, it is now time.
…..In other words, we are laying a new foundation for ourselves, either by re-structuring our businesses, our homes, ourselves, or much else, in order that we create a very new foundation for ourselves….In this way, much will arrive for us right now in effortless ways if it has to do with this theme. Things are indeed being divinely orchestrated.
After we re-structure, we will then propagate from what we re-structured or from the new foundation we laid…and our own individual new reality will then grow. After our own reality and our soul purposes or heart’s desires are fairly evident, we will then connect to the same with our brothers and sisters and create a very new grid for the New Planet Earth.
Living from the heart will become the norm. We will come to know that our hearts are our best navigators and we will use them often…..In these ways, mental, analytical, and thought processes will slowly be replaced by heart and feeling processes. We may find connections that make absolutely no sense intellectually, but our hearts are saying otherwise.
Music will guide the way, as it creates states of feeling and expression that by-pass our thoughts and minds. In this way, we may find that we suddenly cannot get enough music, or have intense desires to create things involving sound.
Creating will also be a main theme for 2010…Re-structuring and laying a new foundation means that we are setting up for things to arrive…. This has been a very long haul in regard to arriving in a very new space.
Thinking positively and having hope are vitally important as well. We can choose to know that things will indeed be different now, as we are without exception the true and rightful creators of our own reality.
…All that lower leg, foot, and lower back pain that some of us experienced was simply in preparation for anchoring in to this new and exciting reality that will emerge ever so slowly from the ground up. Here’s to an exciting and miraculous 2010!’ Karen Bishop
