There comes a time when our existential experiences no longer fulfill a destiny we thought we were aligned with.Our perception of the Divine shifts as our lives unfold into realities we don’t quite understand, realities which no longer serve a purpose and have carried us thus far.We will seek illumination amidst the mundane, transformation amidst the darkness, stillness amidst that which unsettles us, revelation amidst the unknown.Some are running fast towards enlightenment to escape the pain, the emptiness of being.The year ahead is the year of reckoning. Not one of punishment, but of realignment to a reality where the collective has the opportunity to embrace forgiveness to such a degree that we will know loss in ways unknown to us before. Loss of self and our perceptions of who we think we are within the emptiness, the pain,  the unknown, and in our quest for enlightenment.The Divine will command an intensity of stillness that will envelop us in rapture more than any other time in history. The thread of humanity will no longer carry individual needs to the heavens as we understand them but collective wounds embracing all living things will create the new alignment. For some of us, it will feel like such a power struggle, exhausting every bone in our bodies as we expend mental energy in wanting to understand the Divine’s every move. The Year of Reckoning will compel us to come together because of the loss we will experience on both personal and collective levels. There is beauty in this loss, a holiness which we have never experienced before and can only do so once we surrender. We will expand into forgiveness with more ease and a grace which will give humanity the opportunity to love to a greater capacity than we thought we were ever capable of.
