“We are in the midst of a great ripening”

 

In the long heat of high summer, the world seems to sleep in a rich, deep sun-drenched world. Flowers–especially those of the fruit-bearing trees–have been pollinated, and long since dropped their petals. Now the fertilized seeds hang on the boughs, encased in their delicate sheathes.  
     Throughout the weeks that follow, the light of the sun weaves a cloak of world-wisdom into this world of senses. The sunlight is no mere “carrier of hot photons:” rather, it carries  universal, cosmic archetypes from spirit realms into the natural world. It brings to each plant exactly what it will need to fulfill its own ripening. And in these long days of summer, as the flesh of the fruit becomes ripe and rich and full of flavor and goodness, the tremendous gifts of spirit are woven out of pure light, and given to the sentinet beings of the natural world as gifts of beauty and nourishment.
    And how is with us, human beings, living in the light of the spirit sun? How do we find our ripening?
     We, too, are as seeds, slowly maturing through the course of our lifetimes.
We are seeds of the spirit. Our ripening selves live in the core of our hearts. Through the seasons of the year, we have been laid into the earth at winter, and received the gift of new life at Easter. And in the bounty of spring, we have unfolded the flower of our hearts, and been fertilizied.
     Now, it is our time to let our seed ripen. At every moment of our lives , we are given an invitation from the spirt, to open ourselves to the spirit sun that is unceasingly, continuously drenching our world with light,.
     We, seeds of the future, are only beginning our evolution. We must open our hearts to allow this light to teach us, guide us, shape us, lest our ives remain empty and cold, devoid of meaning/. 
     This  living light drenches our world with love.
     And as we allow it to enter us, it shapes us, matures us, makes us whole. Our fruit becomes a gift for the world,, nourishment for world evolution. 
 
     I witness the tumultuous events of our present age, and I perceive many, many threads of meaning underlying it. 
     But most of all, I rest in the deep confidence that this story, all of it, is part of our great ripening. Even as we are being surrounded by forces of hate and feat and despair and distrust, we can find a way to traverse these trials in peace. Even deeper than the forces of destruction and trials are the forces of light and of love and of wisdom. At every moment, those forces are here with us as the emanations of living, loving Being. 
     We are being ripened, as we seek to live in the reality of this light, which loves our earth, our natural world, and us human beings, as we ripen towards our future as cosmic creative beings.
