“Nothing lasts forever” are the profound lyrics of a song. Who would’ve thought there’s so much truth written all round us, we just need to look for it. Continue reading
I am so grateful for this journey as crazy, busy, messy, and just silly as it had been at times.
The beauty is revealed to me as I take moments to sit back and just watch those around me.
Women come into my life when they have hit bottom, beat down, their lives are in turmoil and the problems are stacked high against them, yet they still can relax, have fun, laugh and be silly.
To see them just let go, maybe for the first time in their lives, if for only a few moments, and find the joy in just being totally makes everything worth it.
Everything I went through, the depths of darkness, allows me to relate to others and send a message of hope.
I can say that I have been there, I’ve experienced that and I felt like that but I’m free of it and they can be too.
Just to know that no matter what happens when they leave here, that hopefully they have felt love without any conditions attached, that I’ve done my job of loving them well, is all I can hope for.
Today has been a good day.
If it is meant to be, nothing and no one on this planet could keep you apart.
If it’s not meant to be, nothing and no one on this planet can keep you together.
Sometimes God does for us what we cannot do for ourselves.
I believe when things, people or situations are removed from us, this happens to make room for the new. If I look back I can see that this always happens in my best interest.
When I cannot let get go of something, if it’s time for it to be over, it is literally removed from me.
As long as I get into acceptance and surrender, there may be pain but suffering is optional.
The universe lays out the path for me and by staying present I can hear the answers and see what is presented for me to do.
None of this matters though if it’s only in theory. Unless I have trust in a higher power, what I call it is irrelevant, then how can I let go of trying to manage and control everything around me?
How can I allow the universe to come to me and find peace in the chaos of the world surrounding me?
I am blessed with the life I have been given today.
Thank you God for everything, the lessons, the pain, the joy, the gifts and the miracles.
Everything is exactly as it should be.
Make no mistake you asked for all of this. The all loving universe responded to your wish as it always does when we set intentions.
This thing, this lesson, this growth, whether your ego agrees or not, likes it or not, is what your soul desires.
And the soul always wins.
The quicker you stop resisting and seek answers from within, and follow what your soul already knows but wants you to remember, the quicker the lesson with be over.
To thine own self be true.
Do without judgement for God does not judge.
You need not forgiveness from Him because nothing you could ever do is wrong in His eyes.
You need forgive yourself for it is in the dark place called your mind that the concept of right and wrong exists.
It is a construct of the human ego.
So the question is:
Can you forgive yourself?
Until I am done with a spiritual lesson, until I let go and learn what I need to learn, the lesson will keep presenting itself.
When I let go of what I think is best for me, what my ego wants, I am always blessed with new gifts. I can’t see what is right in front of me until I let go of the old and look for the new possibilities.
Now I see you.
You patiently waited until my eyes were opened. You’ve been there but somehow I missed you.
Like times before it hit me light a lightening bolt. I knew right then that I need to know you. I looked into your eyes and something happened.
It’s that knowing inside of me that hasn’t been wrong yet.
The moment that happened, when I knew you felt it too, it vibrated my soul. There’s a new experience I am meant to have with you.
I have my seatbelt strapped for the ride. Whatever it turns out to be, I know it will be more amazing than times before.
Each time has been because of the work I’ve been willing to do in order to grow.
God put you in front of me.
It’s a beautiful thing.
My freedom is directly proportionate to the amount of trust I place in God’s hands.
The extent to which I feel responsibility over other people in work, family and friendship interactions, is a direct result of what role I believe God has all of this.
God is in charge or I feel it falls on me.
It’s one or the other.
If I understand that God is pure love, an unlimited force with a plan far greater than anything I could begin to comprehend, that what I would think should happen is extremely, extremely limited, then I can keep my eyes on my own growth and allow what is meant to be to unfold.
Sometimes that seems to look to me like chaos, unnecessary pain or just plain ignorance on other people’s part.
When I can let go of the self centered belief that I am responsible for others and what happens in the world around me, I allow God in.
I can breath.
I can experience peace.
I can be present in the moment.
All of the weight in the world can be lifted off my shoulders and I can be free.
Letting go of everything I think I know about the world and how things should be has been the most amazing gift.
I must continue to seek and surrender.
Today I will slow down, listen to the voice of God within me and do what’s presented to me.
Everything else I will let go of.
Today I will allow God in and push ego out.
