First of all, thank you all for your kind words and for your comments and insights on the symbol I posted. It has been very interesting to see how this have touched so many of you in so many different ways. To me, it symbolizes the confirmation that everything I believe in is true, and not just a figment of my imagination. That was why it touched me so profoundly in my dream. It was a visible proof of the existence of all of the things we sense are there, but we cannot yet see. But some day soon we will, and I know that day is not too far off now.

As I mentioned in my post “Time to take a break”, these last few weeks have been so transformative. Not just for me, but for so many around me as well, and that is why I have a very strong feeling that we are approaching a monumental change, not just as individuals, but as a collective. Everything is picking up speed and intensity, and even if 2012 has already proven to be a very important year for us all, I think the remaining months will be even more eventful.

I have learned so many lessons this year, but now I sense that the real lessons will begin. It is like we have all graduated from one school, and after a very, very short “summer break”, we are about to begin studying at a new one. I feel the urge to push further, to open up new doors and to challenge myself in so many ways. In other words, we have finished the preparatory work, now the time has come to start expanding in earnest. At times, it feels exhausting just thinking about it, but then, the exhilaration and anticipation kicks in, and I can’t wait to see what’s behind the next bend in the road.

We have all made giant leaps ahead these last few months, and even if it does not feel like that when our physical body is acting up or when we look at the news, I know that this world is slowly becoming the place we have dreamed of for so long. The work is not over, but we have all turned a corner, and now we will start on our most interesting times yet. And, as always, it is so important to take care of ourselves, and to reach out for help when our own spirit feels less than eager to keep going. I know we will all have our share of moments when we think “no more, I cannot take another day of this”, but I also know that we have grown so strong these last few months that we can face whatever it is we have ahead. At least so long as we remember that we are not alone in this. We have each other, and we have the help and support of so many “unseens”.

I am looking forward to the new lessons, and to meeting all of my classmates, both old and new. I know we will have a great time together, and even if the classes will be long and challenging, I just know we will love all the things we will learn. I promise to do what I can to support you if the lessons feel overwhelming at times, and I hope you will do the same for me :–)

Love and light, Aisha
