Moana’s chorus

I confess, I have an earworm for the chorus of Moana’s song “How Far I’ll Go”. Here are the lyrics:

See the line where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
How far I’ll go

See the light as it shines on the sea
It’s blinding
But no one knows how deep it goes
And it seems like it’s calling out to me
So come find me
And let me know
What’s beyond that line
Will I cross that line

See the line where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
How far I’ll go

In my mind, the sea is the heart-space of unfathomable depths or the vast ocean of awareness. Some call it the last frontier, some cower before its unknown dimensions and a few dare to cross the line of belief in order to know. And yet “no one knows” how far it goes, and that is part of the allure, isn’t it?

Only the silence knows.

And only the silence can take you there.

Moana is tasked with returning the Heart to the Land to free her people from a looming threat. We are tasked with returning to the heart-space in order to free ourselves from the tyranny of fear we have unknowingly allowed. It’s Disney, so of course she succeeds (and so do we all, eventually, or now), yet her task at the end is to embody fearlessness in order to face the threat. She does this through coherent emotions which she courts with her relationship to her inner heart-song. Singing, she tames the land/beast and is able to restore the heart. That is the “wind” in her sail: her coherent heart and fearless usage of it in the face of “danger”. There is no more “If”. We can change the lyrics to read “As the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me”. The song is changed, and with it, her DNA. She has embodied the experience (in 90 minutes of animation) and made it her own. Now healed, she brings the information back to her people (with the help of a demi-god).

We can enlist the help of our dormant DNA – our Demi-god, Now (within)Awareness. We have 12 strands, potentially, though only two are activated.

Going into the silence, knowing the blood, feeling the heart-beat, realizing the bones, all of this time in the quiet space of the heart (a half an hour a day) strengthens the system to receive the upgrade to 12 strands of DNA. Coherency is the secret. Silence is the way. Taking the time to journey outside of the lines of belief will activate all sorts of “learnings”. I put the word learnings in quotes, because it really is remembering. It is in your blood. It knows the way. Your DNA will respond to the environment of your body, mind, emotions, thoughts and beliefs. You can program yourself to remember your entire divine spectrum of light (Bruce Lipton “Biology of Belief). You are anointed. Many have gone before and done this work. Many have set the intention to remember. Many have faced down the land of their ancestors (inherited beliefs about how to be, how to dress or eat, what to think about, et. al.) to the innocence before and beyond belief and reclaimed the territory of time. The wind is in your sails, if you want it, it is yours!

Much Love,

    The gift of having children, is you “get” to visit all sorts of animated shows, and some of the messages are quite stunning, quite deep. Moana review below. Another great children’s animation is “Avatar”. We have watched the three seasons three times already, and own the books and have seen the spin-off . . . et. al . . .
