The barrel is empty

Not even snow fills this barrel today

** I’ve got nothing for you today, Holy, the barrel is empty.**

–It’s not coming from you, dear child. Trust into Me.–

**I’ve nothing to say on Day 42.**

–Let’s sit in silence together today. Sometimes I have to empty you out to fill you with newness. Don’t be afraid. Lean into this emptiness. I’ll fill your barrels with sweet wild honey, dear humans. Trust in the soul’s journey, all of you.–

Day 42 of a seventy-five day journey to connect more deeply with God, Spirit, Holy, Love…to explore “What the Heart Knows” during the waning days of 2020.

    Empty is often something I really need. The feeling makes me more calm and aware. It’s a time to pause and recharge. Bob is outside plowing snow. I’m inside by the fire, drinking my tea and thinking of you.

    I have found the magic is in the nothing when I can sit with it, allow it to be nothing. Resistance to what is is the ego’s distraction.

    Oddly, just a couple of hours ago I was listening to Garth Brooks on Sirrus radio and he was talking about what happens to him when he comes off the stage after a big, successful concert. He says he is completely empty, no ideas, no lyrics in his head, nothing inside of him and he always wonders how long before he is filled back up again. So you are not alone in sometimes feeling this way!

    I love this post, Kathy! It’s you in your authentic, Holy, emptiness. ❤
    Emptying out to make way for the new reminds me of decluttering too. 😉
