Today, now is the only place and time you can be. Projecting into the future or lamenting the past only creates chaos in the mind. Hope is here today. I know you are confused, hurting and afraid for so many reasons. WE are all in this together. Some moments we can hold the hope and some moments we fall into despair. Everyone is struggling in some way. I have been struggling. This is a time of oneness. When one person falls into negativity another person maybe even around the world is holding the light. We are moving through this together. This is a time for quiet reflection of who we are now and who we would choose to be. Be gentle with yourself. Breathe. Take time to exercise and eat right. Relax. You know, all those things on the self care to do list we never get to. It's time. You are not alone. We are all her together. Some times you will be the ebb sometimes you will be the flow. Truly love yourself like never before. Like the Creator loves you. Love one another. It is the greatest commandment of all. Set your intentions to anchor into the peace. It is there. The Divinity of the Universe is waiting to give you peace. Waiting for you to float in Divine Stillness. Peace, be still! And you shall.
Woods and water surround our old house, a renovated hunting lodge, on a mountain top. A crunchy dirt road signals my departure from the real world as I turn from the main road. I sigh in relief. The heaviness falls from me. In this hidden wood, a cool green canopy of oaks guard the way. Oaks are the last to dress for fall and in winter: stubborn, brown leaves cling to gray branches.
Believe in yourself. Take control of your life. Your life is not behind you, your memories are behind you. Your life is always right here, right now. Think only of the best and expect only the best, you are worth it. Look always at the positive side of everything, train yourself to do that, it is up to you. Remember, the amount of energy is the same. Invest in getting what you want instead of what you do not want in your life. - Spiritual Awakenings
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you just don't care.
Dance like no one is watching. The above quote is scrawled on the inside cover of the book titled Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie, given to me by my friend Ellen. It was her well worn personal copy.
