THE CLEARING

a fog

Have you ever felt as if you were living in a fog, where the long awaited clearing seems to never come? Well you are not alone! The weather can be sunny with short periods of overcast, but not in your world. The birds are singing the flowers are blooming, but not in your world.

It’s hard to imagine that soon this feeling of despair will lift and reveal the beauty of life even if it’s raining. We can be so over come with sadness, and anxiety that all we can think about is how to get past the next few minutes. We dwell on why me and how is it that everyone else around me seems to have it all?

Your heart is so heavy it cannot send the right signals to the brain to provide the help needed to snap you out of the suffering that you are putting yourself through. We have all become so distant from our true nature, the essence of who we are that we begin to forget how miraculous our bodies are that it allows us not to be in control because then we would forget the one key ingredient for survival, “Just Breathe”

The act of breathing when concentrated on relieves our aching souls for that brief moment that will have allowed for peace to enter even for just a few seconds. Dwelling on the negative gets so much more of a rap than it deserves. People in our lives constantly remind us of our limitations when the positive is so much more important.

Remember none of us were born with the answers and it’s unfair to think that just because our elders are older that have an inside track to the answers needed for us to solve our deepest concerns. Each one of us is unique and gifted in a way that no one else is, and it’s not realistic to think that anyone has the information you need when they are on a path of their own.

If a past event is causing you to constantly be in a state of grief because you do not know how to function without the thought form it has created in your memory bank, it’s time to realize all the past is a recollection in the present thought forms. You have power to change the thought form by letting it go where it belongs, in the past,a place where you were to learn from the experience and move on to the present, for that is where life is and that’s why it’s called “The Present”.

It’s the opportunity to get it right, to free you from the bondage of the past and all those who live there reminding you constantly of the mis-takes you’ve made, who do not possess the gift of forgiveness and unconditional love!!

Why live there, a place the sun never shines? and only in forgiving yourself and when you can fall in love with yourself will you be free to find those who think your are pretty awesome. We are all beautiful and unique onto ourselves, and those who do not embrace you because you think or behave differently, and that you are not worthy of the air you breathe have such lessons to learn that they will have nothing to offer you except repeat patterns and stories that are boring and ultimately no longer relevant.

But you are relevant!! You have a potential to be brilliant and recognizable to yourself, and to those who need your brilliance, that gift which comes in the “present”a time and place we have the privilege to be in.

So get up shake yourself off of all that which does not serve you, smell the coffee, and start the day in gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity to get it right.

THE CELEBRATION OF LIFE

abstract-art-celebration

Life and it’s situations cause many of us to venture in the understanding of it through various ways, religious beliefs, philosophy, science, meditation, astrology, ancient history, groups and organizations. The search for self identity becomes a quest for life that cannot be found for it is already in you.

The idea for many that they have no life is in itself a misconception that can only be instilled through a mind induced process. If we are breathing then we are alive, and life cannot be denied. The mystery that surrounds the miracle of life should be embraced and celebrated, rather than dissected and analyzed through endless efforts that come to the same conclusion over and over again, it’s unexplainable.

The idea of being happy or positive through very challenging circumstances causes many to think the person is not normal, how can someone be so positive when they have lost all their money, or have a fatal disease, or lost a loved one, or have been cast out as weird or not right in the head? Well the answer is simple, they chose LIFE, the greatest gift in all the Universe. A chance to experience being a part of a greater picture that cannot be explained only accepted and appreciated through our ability to be humble and kind.

So the next time you are feeling sorry for yourself, and take on the roll of victim do the unthinkable, celebrate, dance, sing, and watch your world change not with your eyes but through the hearts vibration of love, a place where fear cannot exist. Like attracts like and when you shift your energy to embrace the unknown rather than fear it you begin to live.

Life is in the present moment the celebration is in honor of you, so rise to the occassion embrace the unknown make it your friend and watch your world become your own through the beauty of our body vessel on a space ship called Earth taking us along for the ride. So sit back, relax and be the witness to the mystery of the unknown.

We are closer each day to discovering for ourselves what the real truth is behind our existence and the truth about ourselves.

What grade will you be given on your footprint left on the planet. ┬áIt doesn’t take much to show respect and gratitude to Mother Earth and the people on her, it starts with one person at a time. It’s just that simple, sharing is caring and the gift of giving no matter what form it takes is just as rewarding to the giver as the receiver, for what goes around comes around.

Life is very unpredictable, so go with the flow, “don’t worry be happy”, and remember it’s not the situation that determines the outcome, but our thoughts about it. Stay in light and love and watch the possibilities appear out of no where, that’s what miracles do.

Just as the artwork above is showing us THE HEART is at the center of everything and it’s the greatest gift of all that we can give to each other LOVE.

Lots of Love and Light
