From Conflict to Communion

Day 27 SOS-2000 Poetry Project

From Conflict to Communion
By Barbara Brennan

You are beginning to understand
and deeply experience
the difference between communication
and communion.
Or, if we were to step more deeply into duality,
communication may not be existent at all!

Co-creation moves from confusion to conflict to
confrontation to communication to communion
to at-one-ment and still being.

Gayle’s Reflection:

These words are very revealing. She is saying the process of co-creation(which is with God, I create, you create, we create) involves the movement of energy beginning at confusion and moving through conflict, confrontation, communication, communion until you reach at-one-ment and stillness of being, where the process rests and then begins again.

In this moment, these words identify for me a very deep process and understanding of what marriage and divorce can look like. As we step into the template of holy matrimony we set up a series of “C”s that two people regularly negotiate and move through every day.

Noticing which “C” you on are may alleviate many a divorce, as you choose to consciously understand and create a happy married life. We sometimes get stuck at one of these places, perhaps conflict or communication. Since it takes two to co-create and when one spouse isn’t moving within the process, things break down and can remain in that position of no communication or lots of confrontation. Only with awareness of position can we move through it.

This can replay with the same souls over many lifetimes until it is resolved or completed to at-one-ment. Having this guideline helps us to identify where we are. Ask yourself do I still want to stay here? How can I move toward communion and stillness which feels much better to me than conflict or confrontation.

Allow the Divine to assist and answer your call to co-create more love. Under all conflict is a fear of lack of love.

Choose to open to the flow the love.
Choose to apply forgiveness as the balm of conflict.
Choose to free yourself from lack of love.

Continuously trust the wave of “C”s to bring you to COMMON-UNION with God, Self and Other.

Thank you Barbara for this wonderful road map for Co-Creation!

Confusion → Conflict→ Confrontation→ Communication→ Communion→ At-One-Ment and Still Being

See you tomorrow,
Love Gayle

Surrender to the Burning

Day 26 SOS -2000 Poetry Project

Surrender to the Burning
By Barbara Brennan

As fire burns in the heart, the fire of the heart burns.
Surrender to the burning, the burning.
Surrender to the burning within you
of the pain and the joy, the courage and the fear.

Surrender to the burning.

Enter the fire with pleasure and great expectation,
as you surrender to your burning,
dissolving into fire.

The warrior burns. The warrior surrenders.

Gayle’s Reflection:

Surrender to the passion of the heart, is what is being said here. Surrender does not imply a winning or losing event. Surrender is a deep trust and allowing of the sacred heart’s passion to come into being.

Burning off the dross that covers the passionate heart takes trust, courage and desire to walk through the levels of fear and pain. It is a matter of trusting the fire to deliver the pleasure and joy of receiving the true desire of one’s own heart.

The most important thing I learned at BBSH was to keep trusting my own heart’s sweet longing. Doing this allowed me to keep stepping toward the burning alchemical fire that was opening in my heart and forever changing my life.
To live a life knowing ones’ own heart became a passion I could not avoid.

Sometimes the fire was but a spark that I chose to keep fanning until the flames emerged and the burning desire was unveiled. This happened over and over again as my heart was covered thus. My noticing what my own heart wanted became my most important focus.

Mostly, I wanted to authentically love and be loved as I am. The whole time learning how it felt to surrender to loving myself and caring for myself first. A big lesson most little girls like me didn’t get early on in life.

Now is the time to deeply surrender to love.
May all the fear and pain of deep love dissolve away.
May my heart be forever free of it.

Thank you Barbara for this most important lesson of SELF LOVE.

See you tomorrow,
Love Gayle

P.S. Happy Birthday!
