HOW WILL WE EVER GET HOME?

For many years I have felt isolated and alone, like being stranded on an island with no boat or navigational tools to guide me back home.  So home has been my destination for many many years.  A place where my heart can feel comforted and safe from all that uncertainty with each new day.  The world is very scary and what makes it more previllant today is that people have forgotten what’s most important.

The truth is things have always been uncertain and unpredictable and for many thousands of years the search for home has always been a part of the worlds culture. It’s just that society ignores the fact that many go without knowing where they will rest their heads tomorrow. Privledge has caused a stigma around those less fortunate and an ignorance to think they might not find themselves in the same position someday.

As we all know life can change in the blink of an eye, whether it’s through financial failure, physical health, emotional breakdown, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami’s, war, only a few can we control the outcome with, the rest is in the hands of the unknown and mother earth .  So why is it that we continue to play god when it comes to the fate of others?

The picture above shows stranded women with a true sense of desperation, fear and hopelessness, exactly what the circumstances wanted to create.  We can only imagine how they will persevere and survive the aftermath.  So often a situation is not of our doing and the need to feel victimized is what gets us through.  But what if we looked at it as a challenge to find out who we really are, and refuse to accept that in some crazy subconscious way  we deserve our fate.

Home is where the heart is and the heart lives inside of you.  You are your own best friend! We should not define ourselves from the amount of money, friends, jobs, family,or accomplishments we have obtained.  The truth is no two people are alike unless you wish to be a part of a heard that is identified by their persona, to be lead by a system that is breaking down.  Remember they can take away everything but the depth of who you are, your heat always goes wherever you go.

The Eygptians knew the heart is the persons ticket to eternity, weighed against a feather, stop being weighrd down by a heavy heart and embrace your true self by not wanting to be someone else, living somewhere else, longing for things to be different.  Stop asking why me and ask what’s the reason or more importantly what’s the lesson and how quickly can I accept this so I can move on in my journey.

For years I thought I was not capable of making the right decisions, then one day I realized there are no wrong decisions, just a longer way to get to where I need to be, home is right inside of you. No matter where you go there you are, and your essence, your true self will be there with you every step of the way.

Love yourself enough that no one can make you feel not worth of life because life is all about love, and the light you shine will be recognized by others and together with like minds true love can be found. Don’t waste your time trying to convince others of who you are, put that precious energy into yourself become one with nature and it’s creater, find peace and joy will follow, it’s truly liberating and life changing.  The path is not easy but the reward is priceless!

Love and Light

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.
