GOING WITHIN

We seek outside ourselves for answers that can really only be found by going within us.  The wisdom of the ages is found inside each and every one of us here on earth.  The journey to go within can seem very frightening at the beginning.  It’s so expansive and there is no instruction book explaining exactly how every step will look along the way, like a scientific experiment with guaranteed results every time.  Only hints and recommendations of what happened to this person or that person and what they felt or did while at the same time telling you to trust that it will work for you too.

That’s where the BIG leap of faith comes in.  Spirit will push the door open giving you opportunities to step into something new or different.  When the time is right for you, you will take those first steps into the doorway in a leap of faith that you may not even believe in.  You will do it because it “feels” like something you are supposed to be doing and it “feels” right for you.  Your GUT, your intuition, your knowing, will KNOW that it is the right thing to do, and that’s all you have to worry about to get started on the journey within you.

Along the way you will discover that you do have guideposts inside you from your life experience, from books you’ve read, and people you’ve talked to that point you in the right direction.  When you get stuck you’ll find that the right people will show up, the right books will come your way or just the right information will land in front of you to help you to the next step.

It’s not about perfection or doing everything the books say to do.  It’s about how you follow YOUR intuition and knowingness inside you.  It’s all about pure TRUST in yourself and Spirit.  How you walk it your way.  It’s about a leap of faith that you DO know what you’re doing, even if you don’t.  You just know you have to do it for YOU.

Wisdom is not playing one card against the other. 

Wisdom is holding your cards into the unknown and letting go of the outcome. 

The Secret of Friendship

Friends scan

WE KEEP our friendships in our most SECRET parts of ourselves as defined by only us.  They are the matches to our lives where we go to tell our secrets, cry , laugh , sing, dance, party, and share the deepest parts of our lives with.  We bless them, we hate them, we love them, we are jealous of them, we forgive them, and we know we  can’t live without them.

I found the above poem many years ago and I like it because it best explains the truth of what I see friendship to be.  It had no author listed and it reads:

A friend is one who knows you as you are,

Understands where you’ve been,

Accepts who you’ve become,

And still invites you to grow.

May you take a moment to bless them all in your lives now.  Whether you forget them in a week or they are still in your life in 10 years.  Bless them.  For they are like the fabric that holds us all together.  They are a reminder that we are all connected through the etheric energetic strings of the universe and that any one of us can hold the other through those strings anytime we want to.  Friends are there for the prayers we say in the moment of triumph and in the despair of grief at the loss a loved one.  They hold us and we hold them.  The fabric is whole.

WEB OF LIFE   by Dawn M Cheney

We weave a web of life.

And others we entwine with ours

To form the ebb and flow

That makes it all worth while.

STUCK

polar-bear

Stuck on a mountain and

No where to go.

Which way is the circle?

Which way is the snow?

The ice is all melting

And I’ve nowhere to go.

Help me I’m falling and

I need your help too.

Help me!  My habitat is

Falling into the sea.

And all I have with me is

This tiny iceberg and me.

WHEN IT FEELS LIKE THERE IS NOTHING TO HANG ONTO, HANG ON TO YOURSELF AND BREATH.  There is always a path forward.  We just need to slow down and take time to listen inside for the guidance of what to do next.  And sometimes that means just standing still waiting for the changes in yourself and others to catch up.  It’s OK to stand still.  It’s OK to be stuck.  It’s OK to be lost.  That just means your are exactly where you need to be so you can learn to listen inside better.

Breath slowly and deeply and wait.  Trust that the answer(s) will come when you and the universe are ready to hear them.  And know that you are safe and on the right path.  The light and truth of spirit are guiding you in all things.

THE DIFFERENCE IS YOU!

ScanWhat is the difference between you and them?  How come they count and you don’t’?  When do you get to make the difference?

These are all questions many of us have asked ourselves over and over again growing up being sure that everyone else had the power to make the difference, but not us.  This is also the basic belief of a major portion of the population of the world today.  No one wants to act on his or her own or get involved because they think they have no power to make a difference, so why bother.  And inside this belief folds the inaction that has brought the world to the brink of disaster over and over again.

We all seem to have been taught in a similar fashion that the “true” representation of power is outside of us; parents, teachers, bosses, the government, the news, etc.   That it relates to money, control, leadership, and possession.  No place for weakness and compassion here, or even yourself.  Just knuckle down and grind away to get to the top before the other guy does so that you are the one with the power, the one in control, not them.

This inaccurate belief is a misconception of the true meaning of power.  True power comes from within you. With the power within yourself you can move mountains one step at a time.  Mother Teresa was not a giant, but she had the heart to be her own true self.  She wasn’t an army of church workers coming to save the world.  She wasn’t rich and powerful ruling over everyone.  She was simply one person who stood in her place and changed things one step at a time to make a difference.  This is true power, the power within.

Turn the key and unlock the true power within yourself.  Take a belief and stick with it working out one step at a time to find the difference you can make in yourself and then see how it spreads to others.  You see that is where the real difference begins, inside you with your life, not outside with someone else life.

You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish when you learn that the difference is you.
