Unchartered waters... by Julie McCullock.

This morning "I woke up" to the words...

HE Leadeth me to still waters..

So what was the message for me ?

Yes I can stay docked at the shores where its safe and its comfortable..

And its what I know..

OR

I can untie the rope and head off into the unchartered waters "knowing"

I will be guided into still waters..

The ship reminds me of me this physical vessel comprised mostly of water..

What do I fill the vessel with....take on board.... so that is carrying what it needs to stay afloat no matter what may be???....or come ???

That feeds it and packs it with all it needs and nurtures it as it heads into unchartered waters..

So that it can stay calm and centred and balanced so it does not get tossed around  which ever way the winds might blow..

My "breath" is like the winds...pivitol to keeping the vessel afloat.....moving.... and steering in the right direction..

Breath...my breath...my universal breath...that if I focus on calms my vessel...

Its the life force that keeps the vessel flowing to its optimal capacity..

It keeps the waters still inside and out...peaceful...

And yes at times the breath may get out of sync as the winds start to blow..and I allow myself to get tossed around BUT..

Do I allow these winds to build up and up till I'm tossed around so much that I can't see the way..

Lost at sea...in a storm that tosses me from pillar to post.... till I once again I become the master of my ship...

Taking the realm and steering myself back into gentle waters..

And take gentle breaths which calms ALL..

Then and only then am I the sovereign being...... the one who dares to go out into those unchartered waters 

Where all is much more beautiful than I could ever have envisaged in my limited vision of what lays ahead..

The fog has lifted and the veil removed to reveal

Lands filled with so much peace...wonder....and beauty...the air so clear and fresh...the colours so much deeper than I ever saw before...

The wonders of Mother Nature beyond words...

Waters so blue..

Father Sky so clear ....the stars are like bright diamonds...

The rain falling like the purest crystals from the sky..

So maybe just like "once" it was believed that if you sailed far enough you'd go over the edge of the world because it was flat..

Because it was so entrenched in the human psyche that that was so..

Till some brave souls untied the ropes and sailed into those "unchatered waters" and saw through the illusion of what they thought was...

There's no going back...these waters are new...

So I'm heading off into those waters knowing that there is a force so much grander and mightier than my "limited" thinking allows me at this moment in time...

And that mighty force who "created" ALL...will be my compass and my guide..because it is not only all around me but within me...

Who knows even before me where this ship is sailing to and where its already been..

This force.... a love so unconditional and endless ..

If I just allow that force to be my map my guide...

Taking me into the unchartered waters...

That force that will be my compass on this journey..

The invisible force that will take hold of the wheel if I fall down..and help me up again...

And keep the vessel afloat....come what may...

And I know that what lays ahead is worth much more than I could have ever envisaged just be letting go of the ropes....surrendering....and trusting...

To a new world....a beautiful world....that is waiting for all of us...

And so be it...He Leadeth me into still waters...
