Sooner or later, sooner if you have a rebellious side like me, possibly later if you don’t, but eventually you will come face to face with the question as to what is this all about?
Or, as I like to call it, what the fuck is this all about?
Most people avoid having to deal with this question any way possible. They find a thousand distractions to not have to contemplate, let alone answer that question until it is too late. Until their time has run out and death is close by. That’s one of the beauties of death, it brings everything into a singular focus, really, really quickly.
“Death is a constant companion that reminds us to cherish every moment because it will never come again”, (Something captain Picard says in the final scene of Star Trek Generations). In that way, it is a constant reminder to live alive, to live with passion, to live with love, because this may be your last day, your last moment during which you are able to do those things in this existence, in the form that you are in right now.
And it is a reminder to face the question about what the fuck this is all about head on and stop suppressing it and hiding from it when it shows itself. Because “ain’t no time like the present” has never been more profound than when this question stands before you.
Many moons ago I was desperately searching for an answer to that question because at the time I felt like life was a bad joke. I searched far and wide by exploring what spiritual offerings were available at the time, which wasn't many, but nothing offered any, or much of any, insights. I always had the feeling that the people I looked at for guidance didn’t know much more than I did. I felt that they were just as lost as I was, they were just better at pretending they weren’t.
Until one day I met a guy who was much more of a rebel than I felt I was, or allowed myself to be at the time, and what he talked about and how he described the world and the people living in it, and what he shared with me about myself and what to look for in life to find my own answers, gave me hope that indeed those answers might be out there to all the questions rambling around in my head, waiting to be found, after all. He was the first human who made any sense to me.
Sitting here today, years after that remarkable encounter, I’m thinking about my life and all the things that have happened since and everything I’ve learned about “what this is all about”. I would like to share these thoughts with you on the eve of another Thanksgiving celebration and Holiday Season. Whatever you think you know about “what it’s all about”, you ain’t seen nothing yet. And, when you really think you know, you still ain’t seen nothing yet as to the depth of wonder and beauty of what it is really all about. One of the things I’ve learned in the years following my meeting with that remarkable human is that the more I learn the more I know how much more there is left to learn, to explore, to experience, and know.
Keep searching. Keep walking with wonder and curiosity. Don’t believe anything blindly because when you do you are giving away your power to find your own sacredness and you are deciding to live by someone else’s idea of the truth instead of searching for, finding, and living in your own sacred journey. “Stay hungry, stay foolish” are not just the closing words of a commencement address. Stay hungry to learn until you truly know in your bones that you’ve found real answers to what it is all about. And then, keep going, keep searching for deeper questions and answers to it all.
Develop a deep desire for it, develop a deep longing to know, to find those answers and then continue to search for them until your dying breath. Keep going even, and especially, when you think you know.
Continuing to have a longing to find deeper questions and answers does not mean that you cannot be content. Quite the opposite. You will learn to be content, to be happy, to be grateful, to be alive, and to learn to know and live the love and peace in your heart. You very likely learn to be passionate, to be passionately in love with yourself, with others, with life from a true heart-centered, Song centered place, and that’s great. But keep searching with that love and passion and aliveness, knowing that the gifts you will find just keep growing and growing. It never ends.
In deep love and gratitude for all the people walking with Kay and myself today on that journey. And love and gratitude for everything we have been gifted with, and all the people who helped us find those gifts, which are pretty much all the people we’ve met along the way.
Love and Song,
Helmut and Kay
PS: During this Holiday Season, as we do each year, we will slow down again a bit to look back at this year, to look at where we have been, where we are, and where we’re going. We are planning some great events for next year, including a public Weaving Ceremony that is open to more people. We had a Weaving Ceremony a couple of weeks ago with our advanced group of students. It was a profound transformational experience.
Kay has made some amazing strides in continuing to develop the Red Door Healing work, we’ll share more about that too. As well as about new discoveries on her ongoing healing research and work that will rock your socks.
A new Apprenticeship Program to guide people to truly learn to know and live the peace and love in their heart in a world that is going more coocoo by the day.
PPS: If you want to learn more, or be part of any of those adventures next year, join our public Facebook Group @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/kataseehealingtalks/ or like and follow our page on Facebook @ facebook.com/katasee. Or do both.
You can also schedule a free session with me where you can receive help and guidance to find more clarity about your adventure and to see whether or not these ancient healing teachings can help you with what you are looking for.
