We are living in a time of a Great Awakening – a modern day renaissance. Never before have people from all across the world been so connected. At the click of a button, we can connect, in real time, with people from almost every country and even the International Space Station. In the past, our Centers of Influence included our family, teachers, local businesses and neighbors who were contained within a geographic proximity. People beyond a 50 mile radius were considered “long distance.” Keeping in touch required written correspondence that traveled for a week or more to reach it’s destination. By the time a response was received, the news was already outdated. Calling long distance was expensive by most people’s standards and, therefore, limited in frequency and duration.
I lived in California in the early 1980s and remember the excitement of getting a call from “Home” (Pennsylvania). I was very lucky, my Uncle/Godfather worked for Bell Telephone. One of his perks was free long distance and “Conference Calling.” At that time, Conference calling was an advanced technology only available to businesses. My Uncle would faithfully connect me with my family via a conference call most Sunday afternoons. This was my heart line. I made sure I was close to the phone for these calls!
Today, we can go online, on any device, anywhere, and communicate live with a stranger half way around the world. Social Media has given us the opportunity to find people with common interests regardless of their location. Our Center of Influence is not limited by geographic proximity. This is a modern day marvel mostly taken for granted these days.
The convenience and flexibility of this instant connectedness is a blessing and a curse. Yes, we can access people 24/7, but at what cost to the people in front of you? Are we really present with those who are right next to us? The stimulus of this constant communication and access to online apps and games draws us into the spell of this digital age.
The next stage of this digital connectedness is access to current day resources and more via the most powerful and underused computer, our brain. In the space between our thoughts, there is a place where imagination has no limitations! We access this space when we are quiet and disconnected from any manufactured stimuli. As much as we had to learn the tools of connecting electronically, we need to relearn the art of going within and listening to our hearts. This is a very simple concept, but it’s not easy! Once you find this space, you are granted an opening to the Universal Consciousness. That place where all knowledge exists and is readily available to those who would listen. It is our “Higher Self” or our “Spirit Self.” It’s important to remember… we are Spirits having a Human experience. We are not Humans having a Spiritual experience. There is a huge difference between these two experiences. This was never so clear to me as when my beloved Mother-in-law took her last breaths and left her body. The void in the room was greater than any physical mass. Her body was clearly nothing but a vessel to allow her Spirit to take form on this Earth. Once her Spirit left the body, she was no longer there. For me, this was one of life’s pivotal moments from which you can’t turn back.
Moonstone and Sage is all about bringing you closer to this Higher Self residing in each and every one of us. The purpose of coming to Moonstone and Sage is to find methods and tools to connect us with this quiet Source of Unlimited Power every day of our lives!
It’s great to have a place to go to, a sanctuary, where you are free to access the purity of your Heart. More important is finding that sanctuary within and learning to visit there during the course of you daily life. This is possible. It Can be done! It is our Divine Calling to help you find this within.
