Time to Awaken! – Part 2
Important Messages from Spirit
Many years ago, while still in college, I bought a small scroll that had a quote on it titled, “Normal Day,” by Mary Jean Irion. Even back then, I understood how fleeting life could be and the importance of appreciating and savoring this gift we have been given.
Perhaps that’s part of the reason why, despite all the pain and suffering we might endure here, when we are on the other side, we put up our hands when asked and say “yes” to incarnating here again and again. I’ve even heard some spiritual mentors say that we don’t even wait to be asked if we would like to return. We just request the next possible time to jump in and do this “human being” lifetime.
In one of his channeled messages from Kryon, an interdimensional being of light, Lee Carroll shared some of Kryon’s thoughts on this issue. Kryon explained that no matter how difficult our lives have been or how much suffering we have experienced, most of us, almost from the moment we return “Home,” will want to return back here on this plane as soon as we can to help others and to continue the spiritual growth of our souls.

While here, though, many of us long for a respite from what we may consider the “grind” of life. That’s why vacations are so coveted and often feel so fleeting – because we haven’t learned to enjoy life on deeper levels of awareness in each of the precious moments we are given, no matter where we are or what we are doing. When someone dies, however, we feel very intensely the fragility of this precious fleeting gift.
Here is the excerpt from Mary Jean Irion’s “Let Me Hold You While I May” from Yes, World: A Mosaic of Meditation (1970), known by many as “Normal Day”:
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you,
love you, savour you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky
and want, more than all the world, your return.
As the sun rises on a new day, may we all give thanks for the blessings and appreciate so deeply even just what we consider a “normal” day. Photo from www.freeimages.com. Photo by Andreas Krappweis, http://www.krappweis.com.
