There is no end
About two weeks ago, I was meditating with Anubis - sitting across from each other - and asked for a message: please give me a message I can use in my life now. He said, "There is no end."
I pondered the message and unraveled the meaning for myself, for my life. I am a person who carries a heavy load. I'm a single mom to a 19 and 16 year old, own my own medical massage practice (11 years), facilitate a monthly meeting for Shamanic Breathworkers, participate in a writing circle to help birth a book I'm writing about life coaching, participate in a mini-mystery school about the Phoenix archetype with Caroline Myss, take care of 4 cats, council my friend whose mother died last Sunday, and I'm cleaning out my 3rd floor to adopt my daughter's best friend who turns 18 on Apr 17th and needs to leave her alcoholic mother. (Her twin is moving in with another family.) I'll bet each of you can relate to a beautifully busy life as well.
So, I tend to push through tasks and goals to 'make it' to Sunday when I rest. Or try to rest. I compartmentalize my life so that every two weeks, when my kids stay with their Dad, I work a long day, see my girlfriends and sleep in and meditate. Every two weeks, I give myself those 4 hours. Again, probably relatable.
But I believe Anubis was saying, there is no end to any task or goal. The clean dishes will be dirty again. The kids will need help making dinner again. The clients will need to be rescheduled again. And it will evolve. The book will need a launch and lead to group life coaching. The adopted daughter will need a bank account and help applying to college as an emancipated adult. My kids will get partners and need help deciding if they are a lesson or a life-partner.
In other words, if you need to rest - rest now. If you need a break from being a parent, therapist, housekeeper - take a break now. If you need to write - write now. There is no end. There is no break. You will work hard in this lifetime and probably in the afterlife. So enjoy it! Life never ends. It never stops. If you push the ball of life or watch it roll down the mountain, it keeps going. Enjoy the endless drama, the endless story, the eternal Life that flows through you.
