Of course, a proven way to make the imaginal real is through love. In one of my favorite children's books, The Velveteen Rabbit, a little boy loves his stuffed bunny with all his heart. The Skin Horse, wise elder among the nursery animals, explains the "Real-izing" process: "It doesn't happen all at once. You become. That's why it doesn't often happen to people who break easily, or who have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
While we can't yet see the outcome of the global shift underway, we can't miss the beauty flowering all around us as we live ever more fully into the Love that we are. We're remembering and reclaiming our wholeness, integrating what was once "other" -- and the understanding that grows as we do is beyond any happiness we've experienced thus far. Welcome home!
