“Each day is a new beginning. You can start fresh, anticipating what today will bring. Or you can just settle for yesterday’s doubts, fears, or worries. Which road will you take? Do you take the path to the clear present or the the shadows of the past?”
There are times that we stand at the crossroads from where an infinite number of paths emerge. The higher your level of consciousness, the greater your vision. As you awaken, your choices will be prompted by profound insight and empowerment. Choose to experience your life through adventure and participation and don’t be afraid to venture into new places.
There is only one thing to ask: “Has my life been a celebration or a sadness?” When you find your unique way of expressing yourself you may discover that the world desperately needs what you have to offer. No matter what you choose to do, do it mindfully. Become immersed within the present moment with joy, acceptance and enthusiasm and the way forward will make itself known.
We are engaged in a collective process of awakening; however, there are many paths to enlightenment. Choose the ones fill your soul with inspiration and joy.
“You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.”
~Roy T. Bennett~
Empowerment begins with ownership. Ego would have you believe that you are a victim of life’s challenges, that things happen to you rather then for you and that you are trapped by circumstance. Though each journey is different, there comes a time when a whisper cuts through the barrage of thought to remind us that change is possible. That whisper is the gift of infinite possibility.
For those ready to shift, that is the moment that everything changes. Rather than repeating old patterns, we bravely try something new as we fumble our way toward ecstasy. Through consistent practice and experience, we refine our way of being in the world. Each new playground provides ample opportunity to master the art of awakening as we shed limiting beliefs and step into conscious awareness.
When shadows arise, turn toward them and they will disappear in the beauty of your light. Acceptance sets the stage for a new way of being to emerge. Your willingness to seek the gift ensures that it will be discovered.
“When the Soul wants to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it.”
In our free-will experience, nothing is carved in stone. Prior to birth, we arrange unique life situations by creating a blueprint that will set the stage for particular lessons and karmic interactions to facilitate our awakening. Our destiny is to rediscover Oneness through the experience of perceived separation.
When ready to cultivate a particular aspect of spiritual awareness, we energetically send a beacon of light into the universe asking for assistance. Those who answer the call come in love to play whatever role is required for your growth. Rather than resist what your soul has set into motion, step into the experience. This conscious approach ensures that you will emerge transformed.
Honor the processes of your awakening. While our vision is initially limited by design, we can learn to expand perception through stillness and Presence. It’s helpful to have an awareness of the physical story and patterns in which we are engaged while simultaneously seeking deeper meaning and insight.
You will never know how amazing you are until you see the power of your light in motion.
Each of us is responsible for our own joy. It’s not the obligation of our partners, parents, children, boss or life circumstances to “make” us feel happy and fulfilled. Rather, happiness comes from developing our own inner richness and spiritual maturity. This infinite wellspring of energy, once discovered, flows through us, changing the way we receive the gifts that life has to offer.
Relationships provide us with the tools and experiences that we need in order to release old patterns and programming. The more clear you become, the less intense your emotional reactions will be. Peacefulness then becomes a way of life as we learn to interpret circumstances through this enlightened and expanded perception.
This is the moment to realize your true nature and to be a loving witness to the sacred energy and potential within you. Joy is the path of your destiny. Take the time to pause and breathe in this present moment – what are you creating right now? Transcend the ordinary and seek wholeness with all existence. Infinite heights, depths and expansion await your discovery.
It’s important to create moments of quietude in order to go inward to connect with Presence. An immense stillness resides within you that is simultaneously filled with everything and nothing. Stillness is the key to self-discovery.
The cacophony of daily experience can be overwhelming and distracting. When you cultivate the ability to quiet the mind and reside peacefully within life’s chaos, you create a space of connection that allows you to access the strength of your soul.
Choose to be in the world but not of it. Rather than following the crowd, find your unique way to contribute to global consciousness and expansion. Just by being yourself, you add something beautiful to the world that has never been experienced before and because of your presence here, we are all transformed.
Even if you feel you do not consciously know your purpose, simply be the best version of yourself that you can in this moment. The rest will make itself known in the perfect way at the perfect time.
