When we surrender in trust, we are always provided for — perhaps not in the way we'd expect or prefer, but which, at a higher octave, serves everyone involved. I know this. And just enjoyed a refresher course in living it.
The other morning, the a.m. radio personality on the station I listen to shared an arresting story.
Colin Cantwell, designer of the Death Star, described how the most memorable scene in the Star Wars franchise came to be:
"George Lucas gave me the project of designing a 'Death Star'. I didn't originally plan for the Death Star to have a trench, but when I was working with the mold, I noticed the two halves had shrunk at the point where they met across the middle. It would have taken a week of work just to fill and sand and re-fill this depression. So, to save me the labor, I went to George and suggested a trench. He liked the idea so much that it became one of the most iconic moments in the film!"
My trench in disguise
This tale foreshadowed the phone call I'd receive later that day. But first, a bit of backstory:

"You sit here for days saying, 'This is strange business.'
You're the strange business. You have the energy of the sun
in you, but you keep knotting it up at the base of your spine.
You're some weird kind of gold that wants to stay melted in
the furnace, so you won't have to become coins."
While many of us realize this pivotal moment we're living heralds a return to unity among all peoples and all life on Earth, visionary author Moira Timms takes the shift a step further, painting a lucid picture of how wealth and wholeness are one. As we remember and reclaim our wholeness/holiness, we elevate the concept of abundance to a "whole" new level.
In Beyond Prophecies and Predictions: Everyone's Guide to the Coming Changes, Timms describes our emerging "true wealth" consciousness this way: "The mind analyzes — the heart synthesizes. The turning point is where the heart is awakening. The United States motto (inscribed on the banner in the beak of the eagle found on the Great Seal, on the back of a one dollar bill), reminds us that America was founded on the principle of 'E Pluribus Unum' — 'Out of the Many, One.'"
Further, the inscription beneath the Great Pyramid (also part of the Great Seal) says, "Novus Ordo Seclorum" — which translates, appropriately, as "A New Order of the Ages". Isn't this amusing? The answer is in money, but it's not about who can become the richest at others' expense. READ MORE

A decade ago, after watching An Inconvenient Truth and reading Al Gore's breakthrough book by the same title, I wrote, "We're actually fortunate he's not in the Oval Office, ensnared in the vast political machine. Instead of a sitting president, Gore is setting precedent..."
Then came Dennis Kucinich in 2004, catalyzing millions of Boomers to political activism — many, like myself, for the first time. Listening to Dennis, tears rolled down my cheeks, because he was articulating exactly how I felt; an astonishing realization for a presidential candidate. But the masses were not yet ready for his (r)evolutionary message.
In 2016, Bernie Sanders has catapulted the issues Al and Dennis championed to the world stage, with the same energetic resonance. Thanks to social media and the Millennials, especially, Bernie has brought the Age of Awakening to the fore. And he's not meant to be chained to the presidential pulpit, however much he may think he wants it.
As this psychic presidential prediction makes clear, Bernie is serving an exponentially greater role as a voice of the people, mobilizing consciousness. Whatever happens after the election, he has raised awareness across America and around the globe, no mean feat for any political candidate, anywhere.
Setting precedent is not for the timid. Al Gore stepped out after the 2000 election voter fraud and illumined the world about climate change. In 2004, Dennis Kucinich made cultural stewardship a global platform. Bernie Sanders is modeling how to be inclusive, not exclusive: the rallying cry that every person matters. There is no more compelling message than giving your vision a voice.
Thank you for your courage (literally, "heart"), Bernie. You are our precedent, is every way that matters.
