Just because you learned it that way, doesn’t make it true. And just because you consider new possibilities, doesn’t mean you have to give up your dearest beliefs. Open. Allow. Be a flowing river, not a stagnant pool.
There are times when you need to power through, but don’t forget to be gentle with yourself during the process. Take quiet moments to breathe in between the action, and once your work is complete, allow yourself to fully experience the release that inevitably comes with difficulty or change.
If you keep looking for that one job, class, guru, business partner, friend, lover who will be the answer to all your needs, you will continue to be disappointed. It’s all within you already to do or be whatever you want. People and situations will come along to help you, but you are your own superstar. Go shine!
In the deepest parts
of the silent night of the soul
your spirit knows,
and in the knowing, that silence,
there is a freedom of the deepest sort,
freedom that none can touch
or force you to surrender,
in that knowing, that silence
there is a peace
that no amount of back breaking
in that space you are wholly you,
the very essence of your eternal being,
and in that space
no doubt, no fear
only pure knowing,
a free and peaceful soul
Everyone is on their own path. You must meet them where they are, not where you want them to be. Meet yourself there too.
When in doubt return to Love, the perfect north star.
And the birds sing sweetly,
the morning sun peeks gently
over the tops of trees
lining the wood’s edge along the creek,
a perfect circle through tree branches up high,
puffy clouds sharing hints of light
as I sip my tea
and listen to the garbage men
shouting to teach other on the next street
and the bullfrogs bellowing to the koi fish
in the neighbor’s manmade pond
And this day starts sweetly
as I wish all days would
and for you
