You never know when your time in this life and in this body will end.
With that in mind, I wanted to share some words with you. In doing so, perhaps you will be reminded about how wonderful and beautiful and complete you are right now. Perhaps you will realize that there is nothing to fear and nothing to worry about, and that there is plenty to love and plenty to be grateful for.
The message I’d like to share with you is about love, goodness, and freedom. Every answer that you are looking for you can find within yourself. But you must allow yourself to slow down and become quiet so that you can hear the answers for which you seek. For Divine Guidance whispers, it doesn’t shout.
You are love. You are the light of the world. You brighten this universe by being true to yourself and by living authentically as you.
May you live with a lightness of being. Don’t take life so seriously. There is nothing that is important enough to stress about for more than a moment. Time ticks on, wounds heal, hearts mend. Forgive yourself for anything you may regret having done in the past. Forgive others for hurting you. Forgive the world for being what it is.
Accept what is and be grateful for being granted the gift of experiencing it. What a wild ride this life is! The highs! The moments of euphoria! And the aching, desperate lows. The sadness that crushes your heart and makes you weep for days. Embrace all of it and let it flow through you. The key is to let the emotions flow. If you hold them in and hide them, then they will become stuck and will trap you into repeating old behaviors and trying to avoid pain. Let yourself feel everything, even pain and sadness, and then allow yourself to move on.
Tune in to the present moment. Open your awareness and experience the world with the wonder and awe of a child. Be curious. Delight in the beauty of a leaf turning from green to orange, red, and yellow as it falls gracefully from the trees in autumn. Marvel at the wispiness of a dandelion’s seedy stem as it floats on the air of a summer breeze. Sing out loud as you ride your bike down a hill with the wind in your face and your hair flying wild behind you. Taste the pockets of juice burst in your mouth as you eat a slice of orange. You will miss so much if you keep racing through life.
Life is cyclical. Often we forget that we are part of the cycle of life, starting with our conception and birth and ending with the death of your body. But the cycles exist in smaller circles too: Each day is a cycle, each month is a cycle of the moon, and the calendar year brings the change of seasons, holidays, birthdays, and celebrations. If you look to the natural world, you will see that this world is one of life, death, and rebirth. From trees that grow a ring each year, to forest fires that are necessary for regrowth, all of nature is consuming itself and each other. That is life in this world. There is no need to fight it. Your life will end some day too. It is the natural order of things in this world. So accept what is, and be grateful for the experiences you have been blessed to live through.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to live with a grateful heart. If you wake up grumpy from a lack of sleep or thoughts of a problem, give yourself the gift of taking a few minutes in the morning to focus on all that is good in your life. Even if you think you have nothing (no job, no family, no lover, no stuff), you actually have an abundance, a true glut of things to be grateful for. You have the sun and moon and stars to inspire you. You have the song of a bird in the morning to cheer you. You have the beauty and color of a flower to delight you. You have the ability to connect with people around you through a smile, warm eye contact, or a hug. You have the ability to think, and the ability to dream, and the ability to love, and the ability to forgive. You have the ability to create the life of your dreams.
So remember to appreciate the dawn of a new day, the smile from a child, and the sound of rain falling on the leaves outside your window.
Allow yourself to let go of beliefs that you’ve collected over the years that no longer serve you. Allow yourself to look within your own heart and mind to find what is true for you. Allow yourself to define what is important for you and what brings you peace and joy at the end of the day. Allow yourself to recognize that all love, prosperity, inspiration, joy, peace, abundance, health, and adventure is available to you in every moment.
Allow yourself to be fully expressed physically, verbally, emotionally, sexually, and spiritually. Do not live in order to please or placate other people. You cannot control their happiness, even if they tell you that you can. You cannot control their thoughts and opinions, so you can stop trying to do so. Allow yourself to live according to your own truth and without regard for what anyone else might think or say. The only person that can make you happy is you. Let yourself be guided by Divine Inspiration. Follow your heart.
Remember that in every moment you have the opportunity to choose to experience love, peace, joy, harmony, gratitude, forgiveness, and contentment. It’s all a matter of perspective. May you embrace your unique journey through life and live in love.
Thank you for reading this and may you always remember that you are Love and that anything is possible.
