All conflict arises because those involved identify with the ego rather than their own infinite true nature. As awakening souls, it is our responsibility to see beyond the roles that people play, their stories of the past, judgment and hatred. Love is an amazing healer.
Human nature loves to define itself through the drama of a situation. Spiritual nature seeks to find the gift within all situations. When we begin every interaction with the knowledge that all things work to our highest good, we create a space where we can choose to look at our life situations from a higher vantage point.
When you can calmly turn and face your challenges with an open heart (in spite of the clamoring voice of ego), your loving intention will shine the light of consciousness. Answers may be obvious or subtle, but you will have the ability to sort through myriad possibilities in order to select the one that best facilitates your growth.
You are absolutely capable of handling whatever the present moment has to offer… and beauty awaits.
Your energy is limitless. No matter what you have discovered so far, remember this: you have barely scratched the surface of your potential. As you learn to accept life energy as a loving dialogue with the Divine, you will be enriched, your experiences will sparkle with new vitality, and your presence will help uplift the world.
Know that you are safe. Fear blocks the process and creates limitation; therefore, we must learn how to look inward, face our fears with ruthless honesty and transform them into empowerment. This beautiful energy and potential is the essence of your being.
Any action taken from higher states of consciousness is an expression of love. Your life becomes an expression of truth as you discover and express your unique way of being in the world. Throughout your wanderings you will connect with many beautiful souls, each of whom longs for you to be your authentic self. Be the embodiment of joy and walk through the world with the knowledge that you are loved, supported, protected and guided in more ways that you can imagine.
“Wildflowers are the loveliest of all because they grow in uncultivated soil, in those hard, rugged places where no one expects them to flourish. They are resilient in ways a garden bloom could never be. People are the same, son—the most exquisite souls are those who survive where others cannot. They root themselves, along with their companions, wherever they are, and they thrive.”
The resiliency of the human spirit is beautiful. We learn that we can overcome our challenges. Our rough edges become facets that reflect the light of love. The dance of our transformation is always in play and together we will discover the myriad nuances of Oneness.
In the process of our collective evolution, we must first consciously tend to our own gardens. Observe what makes you thrive and fill your experience with that. Let life and laughter nurture your soul and as you mature, share the seeds of infinite possibility with the world.
Let us learn from the wildflowers. Honor your brief experience here by being your authentic self. Spring up in the unlikeliest of places. Let your presence give those in your presence a moment of beauty as you reach for the sun.
“Ultimately we need to understand that spiritual life isn’t about being safe, secure or comfortable. It’s not that we won’t sometimes feel secure in the course of our spiritual practice; we surely will. Yet there is a fundamental security that develops from many years of practice – though it is a far cry from the immediate comfort we may now crave.”
There is great joy in learning how to negotiate the unknown with grace. When we do not limit life by attaching to outcomes, we open ourselves to infinite possibility. This is the path of lasting joy. Imagine a life of mystery and enchantment… it is there waiting for you in the midst of the chaos of human experience.
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
Great beauty can be found in the simple, ordinary things of life. Even the most mundane of tasks take on a sacred quality when approached with awareness, intention and gratitude. It’s important to remember that you dictate how your life unfolds by the energy that you bring to the situations you encounter. When we act out of love, without expectation or attachment, wholly involved in the Now, we become one with life.
Be patient with yourself. Sometimes all that is required is a peaceful alertness as we learn to exist aligned and in tune with the energy of the planet. This is a time full of mystery… like the dawning of a new day, there is a quiet anticipation as the awakening happens all around us. In the silence, limitless possibilities await.
Be aware of your relationship to the world around you. Our interconnectedness is becoming more apparent with each passing moment. As spiritual seekers, we are consciously engaging the truth of Oneness through interactions, gratitude, reflection and exploration.
