Shine

“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse. A person who knows who they are lives a simple life by eliminating from their orbit anything that does not align with his or her overriding purpose and values. A person must be selective with their time and energy because both elements of life are limited.”
~Kilroy J. Oldster~

Your expression of life is unique. Younger souls seek to fit in, to follow the crowd and often look for outside validation in order to feel safe. The awakening master sees beauty in diversity and can remain aligned with their own true nature even in the face of adversity or ridicule.

Old souls struggle at times because they see the world in a more expansive way. Not only does that broaden perception, but it also creates paradoxical viewpoint that we must embrace while dropping opinion and judgment. This takes practice and is a skill that can only be honed by consistent practice.

Love who you are. Dance in the realms of joy as you do your work. We are grateful for the unique way that you shine.

Planting Seeds of Joy

Plant the seed of desire in your mind and it forms a nucleus with power to attract to itself everything needed for its fulfillment.
~Robert Collier~
The thoughts of today plant the seeds of tomorrow’s experience. Consider what you wish to create in your life. Are your choices leading toward your destination or away from it? The way to manifest your dreams is to live as if they have already manifested. Treat your job, home, partner or life situation as if it is your dream situation and life will rise up to meet you. Your happiness, gratitude, passion and inspiration will create a magnetic energy to draw more beauty into your experience.
The ego loves to play the game of “I can’t be in acceptance of my life situation, because then nothing will ever change….” however, nothing is further from the truth. In order to assess our choices from a space of clarity and consciousness, we must begin from a space that is free of resistance, anger or desperation.
The seeds of love and compassion bloom in unexpected and magical ways. Tend your garden well. When weeds of anger or doubt crop up, attend to them immediately when they are small rather than waiting until they overrun all the beauty you are creating. You have the ability to cultivate joy each and every day.
