  • I find a noticeable group of people who
    at this very time are coming home to
    themselves and are truly beginning to
    appreciate life exactly the way it is.
    Maybe after all there is a shift to unity
    consciousness going on and that the
    universe is now starting to allow us
    to just be whatever we are.

    Carl Johann Calleman

    There is a shift going on, a ‘coming home.’

    We can now be whatever we are, without shame,

    or apology, or a sense of incompleteness.

    Now, there is the beginning of a new life.

    Do you feel it? Do you feel a gathering of light,

    the way the rising sun ignites fires on the lake?

    Do you feel a growing certainty, that somehow

    things are all going to work out, after all,

    that in spite of everything, the tears and dark nights

    of your soul, that change is now in the air?

    Do you feel the flickering of hope, however faint,

    however distant the music may still be, do you hear

    the drums and the flutes and the tambourines?

    Do you feel small flutterings of joy in your heart,

    as though your heart is a winged creature, ready to fly?

    Do you feel, in the quiet of morning, or deep of night,

    that you are being watched over, cared for,

    by some great, loving, invisible power and grace,

    and that your prayers, your intentions, are finding form at last,

    in the little things of your daily life, which has seemed a desert,

    but which is now blooming with bright, exotic flowers,

    and where waterfalls are flowing out of the red rocks,

    and where thousands of green shoots are pushing up

    through the sand, where there has been no water for so long?

    Do you feel an increasing sense of unity with others,

    others who share your concerns, dreams, and hopes

    for being of use, for being of value to our home planet,

    and to all living beings, in all their forms and spirits?

    Do you feel things falling into place, as though

    it has always been meant to be this way for you?

    Do you feel you can now be yourself, true to your vision,

    and that the Great Spirit wants only for you

    to be who you are, who you have always been,

    to express the breathtaking fullness of your Soul, to be

    who you will be, forever and ever, world without end?
