Writing my way through the A-to-Z blogging challenge, I’ve tasked myself with exploring the concepts of pronoia (the belief that the universe is conspiring to shower us with blessings), quiety (serenity) and peace – all through the lens of unusual, obscure, or simply delightful-to-me words.
T is for…
Translunary has a number of definitions including: 1. situated beyond or above the moon; superlunary. 2. celestial, rather than earthly. But the one I’m focusing on today is: 3. ideal; visionary.
I’m not someone who finds it especially helpful to have a 5-year-or-longer plan or highly structured goals. For me life is much more fluid – I am committed to following my heart compass and trying to be as present in the now moment as I can manage. I want to listen to the messages from my soul and act on them as received.
But a while ago I was asked to think about a 100-year vision – how I want to see the world operating in 100 years from now. I did this with a group of people and as you might expect the results were unique and varied. Many people envisioned their very specific personal legacies carried on, and what that might look like. My vision isn’t really like that.
I envision a world where:
All beings are operating with conscious connection to Source and embodying their Divinity.
Unity consciousness and celebration of diversity are the foundational principles that are expressed fully as harmony, peace, love, and joy.
There is equitable sharing of resources and unified commitment to caring for the Earth.
Gratitude, beauty, grace, kindness, and inspired action are everyday currencies and all beings know they are greatly loved and infinitely supported.
This is the world I want; this is the world I wish to be part of; this is the world I have a responsibility to create. And I believe it’s important to acknowledge that personally and publicly on a regular basis.
I think we need to hold ideals to lean into and ground though our living. I think it’s helpful to have a 100-year vision, knowing we won’t be around to see it (at least not in this particular incarnation). I think that invites us to be more expansive and release some of the self-centeredness that seems to be such a prevalent influence in our collective these days. I think we need to envision a better world and devote our energies to creating it.
What about you? What do you want to be an agent for? What vision do you hold for our world? What translunary wish are you holding in your heart? Do tell – you know I want to hear.
