Syn-the-sis  (sin’tha sis):  the putting together of parts to form a whole

Now that we have figured out a lot about ourselves through our various therapies as to who did what to whom, when and why…
Now that we have examined some of our major karmic patterns and are increasingly embracing them…
Now that we have explored many philosophies, religions and points of view…
And Now that we have accumulated notebooks filled with good ideas…

…What is the intention now?
…What do you want now?

Many of us are finding that we want to claim an inner center of peace and simplicity from which we can manage our lives in an intense world.  Congruence in mind, body and spirit is the goal. We now are seeking increased integration of that which we have been learning: what to keep, what to let go, not just in the physical world, but in attitudes and mind clutter.

In a transitioning world where e-mails, cells phones, social networks, and a general overload of information, even choices,  are constantly seducing us to give away time, attention , creativity and personal power, we need more than ever to choose carefully what we energize.

In the speed and intensity of keeping up with and serving our world, it is necessary to stop, balance and ask, do I remember why I am here, and am I choosing what I want?  We can be supported as we address those questions in an environment where the question themselves are understood and shared.


 Message from Spirit on Synthesis

  “   In spite of the disharmony around us, you must be so synthesized in your choices that your tone, your note, your living mandala vibrates with uncompromised clarity. You who share the vision will hold the pattern of the world in peace; a world which creates an environment in which all life forms can come to fruition, a world in which spirit is recognized as the essence of life and all life is honored, a world in which creative expression is celebrated, one in which wisdom guides knowledge and justice is the ground, a world in which the Universal Christ is born again and again.

It is an exquisite joy to be part of the bringing forth of such a mandala for planet Earth. You first must create this synthesis within yourself, releasing and blessing every single step that has brought you out of the darkness. You must remain steady and not look back. The shift into higher synthesis is as close as your next breath.

You are needed; you are loved, and you are ready. Like a flower that has ensured the long night, welcome the dawn and bravely open yourself to the healing rays of the sun, the time of full flowering is near.”

From Spirit, through Gloria
