Universal interconnectedness binds us to one another. Each and every thought, word and action sends ripples of energy throughout the Universe – some strong, some subtle – and what harms one, harms all. What heals one, heals all.
When we live aligned with our soul’s purpose, we have a greater ability to access the grace and harmony which underlies all things. There are two aspects to your purpose and life mission. Your inner purpose is to awaken. Your outer purpose may change throughout your incarnation on the planet, but it ultimately supports your inner purpose. There are many, many vehicles of healing.
The Buddha said, “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours; it cannot be taken from you, not by angels or demons, heaven or hell.” This inner state of consciousness cannot be shaken by events or other people. Yes, the idea of awakening seems nebulous to many (I can hear the ego saying, “Yes, but what does that mean??) but it is this beautiful intangibility that creates a true sense of empowerment. The infinite cannot be described with mere words, it must be lived fully from the heart.
So allow your outer purpose to shift and change in whatever way best serves your spiritual growth. Apparent losses and challenges are simply part of the game of awakening in which we are all engaged. Whether someone is consciously seeking awareness or not, their soul is still propelling them forward in the most appropriate way for the unfoldment of their journey. As we tend to our own awakening, this loving energy impacts everything and everyone around us.
Today my intention is to seek beauty, be Compassion and live fully within the power of Now.
