The Change You Want
Change is more than inevitable, it is essential to life itself. Change is movement. Movement is energy. Energy is the melody of the life force. What you think determines how you change. Create a practice to think the thoughts that bring joy and the change you want.
Dignity in Compassion
There is always room for compassion. To combat rage with rage only creates more rage. To berate an antagonizer diminishes you. To treat an intimidator ill is to treat yourself with disrespect as you remove yourself from who you really are. There is dignity in compassion; there is love.
Courage is confronting your fears and boldly moving beyond them. Courage is recognizing that no one and no doctrine can reduce or eliminate you as a sentient, complete, autonomous, divine eternal being. Your life is your own.
Being sensitive is a way of being aware. It is a way that your body takes in information. It is different than being offended. Being sensitive is how you receive data from the world around you, at whatever level. Being offended is allowing your ego to lead.
Tap into your feelings to connect directly to your inner wisdom, which is part of universal love. To focus on others’ feelings confuses and disconnects you from your inner wisdom. When you make a decision based on others’ feelings, you will struggle because the feelings are not authentic to you and your inner wisdom.
You may feel a tug from humanity coaxing you to a point of view or movement. When you feel this tug be aware and act consciously. Only choose to follow the pull if it feels good. If it provokes fear or pain, the tug may not be for you. Will the journey bring you joy or freedom?
It is tremendously joyful to love someone as they are right now. To love them freely without needing your help, without conditions, without expectations, is liberating. To love another, regardless of status or social context, is uplifting. To love them “as is” is truly beautiful.
Life is about discovering who you really are. When you exhaust the possibilities outside yourself and are left with only you, you uncover your freedom.
Preparing for Change
When your inner wisdom is preparing you for change, you may lose your equilibrium. Understand that when shifting, losing your balance is common. Be aware and patient with yourself. Seeing things from a new perspective can feel unsettling at first, but then the view is amazing.
Letting go of what no longer serves you (relationships, habits, lifestyles) requires faith. Faith is the power behind believing that you deserve to grow. Invoke faith that new passions will emerge. Conjur faith to bring the best of life. At times letting go is essential.
A Broken Heart
A broken heart spawns vulnerability. In this time, think beautiful thoughts, focus on joy, nourish your healing heart. As you bring your heart back together, treat it gently, as if you just made something new and precious. You can become new and improved.
Balance is Connecting
Much of your life is spent with exercises to find balance. You may play with extremes to discover balance and where the edges are. Balance is connecting. Connecting is taking what appears dissimilar and revealing the sameness of being; belonging.
When Dreams Come True
You have a dream. You repeatedly feel joyful anticipation as you visualize the dream materializing. Then the day comes when your dream does indeed move into the physical world. If you feel fear, know the fear is there to tell you to pay attention. Something important is happening.
Keep moving forward. You can crawl, walk, run, dance, or fly. You will stumble. You will fall. You can get up and keep moving forward. The joy of the past is your foundation. The hope of the future is your destination. Release what restrains you. Forward always.
You crave to be seen and understood. It’s a human yearning we all share to some degree. Allowing and accepting yourself for wanting to be seen and understood helps you develop kindness and compassion. The most important person who needs to see you, understand you, and love you, is you.
Imagination and Creativity
You can answer the question “why” when you cannot find the words to explain it by using your imagination. Create imagery around what your inner wisdom knows but your conscious mind has yet to experience. Use your imagination, which is the purest form of creativity.
Believe in Your Body
Believe in your body! Believe in its glorious perfection. Your cells are connected directly to your inner wisdom. Allow your body, therefore yourself, to be free of influences demanding what it “should” be. Allow your body to reflect who you really are.
Just One Thought
Find just one thought that makes you feel a bit better. Take yourself from powerless to insecure, worried to content, hopeful to joyous. Think just one thought, one thing that lights you up, even if it’s just for an instant. Keep reaching for just one better feeling thought.
It’s All You
You do know all. The universe exists inside of you. There you are waiting to be revealed little by little, piece by piece. The faith you seek is for your own infallible wisdom and love. It is you, and you are all wisdom and all love.
Gratitude and Peace
Gratitude leads to your highest good. Even if you have a hard time feeling it, say “thank you.” Think it. Believing will come as you open up to the idea. Even while experiencing pain and chaos, there is something to appreciate and feel grateful for, which leads to peace.
