What emerged today

"Come into being as you pass away"

These words from logion 42 of the Gospel of Thomas came into my mind in face of the U.S. election result. The really shocking piece, is that - as the U.S. as we thought we knew it passes away - for that is definitely what is happening - we are all passing away, all of us who believe and depend and benefit from that mighty nation.

So...what is coming into being? I begin to suspect that if we focus on that question, carry it around inside with an opening for light and insight, not respond to it too fast, what is trying to come into being will make itself known, be it a sobering reality, a greater light, and - most of all - a better, truer way than any of us have been living.
