Inspiration

“I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.”
~Ram Dass~
As we awaken, we are drawn to teachers that reflect the qualities we would like to refine in ourselves. Notice those who inspire you and consider the fact that that they are merely reflections of you. Life functions as a mirror – things that trigger us are the aspects to which we would rather turn a blind eye; however, reflections also show us the best of who we are.
Consciously spend some time being observant today. Notice what inspires you. Conversely, notice what frustrates you and then simply turn your attention inward. Celebrate how far you have come and quietly do you work around any reactivity that arises.
Each of us is a master engaged in the art of awakening. Be gentle with your own process and embody attributes that lift your spirit into realms of infinite possibility. True wisdom is the conscious awareness of how little we know. With humility we can transform the mundane into the miraculous.

Living in the Paradox

“Humor and paradox are often the only ways to respond to life’s sorrow with grace.”
~Matthew Fox

As spiritual beings having a human experience, our purpose is to discover the delicate balance of grace while living within a paradox. Awakened spirituality creates a dance of evolving energies, weaving dark and light into insight, compassion and understanding.

Love creates the movement of connection. When we learn to see everything and everyone as our reflection, we bring a different response to the events of life. Wisdom calls upon us to realize how little we know. We are at the very beginning of an incredible journey, and no matter how much we learn in the physical realm, we will ultimately experience the humility that comes through the realization of how much there is left to discover. That’s the beauty of living in an infinite Universe.

Allow yourself the opportunity to flow between the frequencies of love and wisdom. See yourself as an adventurer in the midst of discovery. Bring a sense of innocence and trust to your experiences and walk the journey with faith. You are loved, supported and guided each and every step of the way.

 

Conscious Surrender

“We are at our most powerful the moment we no longer need to be powerful.”
~Eric Micha’el Leventhal~
The awakening spirit becomes empowered through surrender. Rather than trying to force life to meet our perception of perfection, we seek to see the perfection in life as it is. As human beings, our view is narrow – typically focused on ego-driven desire and based upon our immediate life experience. We cannot see the threads of life as they are woven together to create the tapestry of creation. The hand of the Divine is always at work in ways that we cannot imagine with our limited perception.
And yet, often there is an aspect to our belief system that prompts us to attempt to control, plan for every contingency or need assurance prior to taking action. Spiritual mastery involves conscious surrender to what is. As you cultivate worthiness and self-esteem, it becomes less important to be seen as right. Inner humility guides us, love becomes the expression of our joy and what you need to know will make itself known at the perfect time. Trust the processes of your awakening.
