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.

Blooming

“You don’t have to remind a flower when its time to bloom is near; it has been preparing for it all of its life.”
~Matshona Dhliwayo~

As we learn to transcend the mechanics of the ego and rise above thought, we are able to recognize the sacredness in life and within ourselves. All that you see is a reflection of your current state of consciousness; therefore, choose to periodically remove yourself from outside distraction and just be. Experience the beauty of life without mental chatter. Immerse yourself in the magic of the present moment and in the stillness, feel the vibrant response of your soul.

When we spend time in nature in this manner, our energy is replenished. The stresses of the day become less important as simple gratitude transforms the mundane into the sacred. The small, ordinary things of life become vehicles of spiritual awakening. The laugh of a child, the love of a dog, clouds creating pictures in the sky… everything is the voice of the Divine. Recognizing this, you are enlightened.
