Release Me To Be Myself

We understand that life is not as easy as you thought it would be. It's not that we are punishing you or that you are on the wrong path.  Far from that, you are being put in situations where you must learn to defend your journey. It's hard enough following your universal path, but now you are finding that you need to explain what you are doing.You are being guided by your inner spirit and yet you feel as if you are fighting those around you. It is difficult to be yourself and live up to the expectations of others, when you are no longer the person others have known you to be. We know how hard it's been for you to follow your path with intention. In releasing yourself to be who you are meant to be, will give you the freedom to reveal your journey to all. Today, just be yourself. It's not for you to change yourself to fit the needs of others. But to be who you are, so that others can experience your true unique self. Believe that you are here for a purpose and others will follow.
  I am at peace today...
(In the past, I often found myself being caught up with being who others expected me to be. It's an easy thing to do when you're not quite sure who you are in the first place. But now that I know where I'm supposed to be, I find myself defending what I'm doing. My intention is to find the balance I need to do all, but sometimes I come up short. Right now, I'm doing as much as I can and that's okay with me.)

Falling Over and Over Again

Why is it that some of us never learn our lesson? No matter how many times we are presented with the same situation, we react the same way. Even if the outcome is detrimental to us, we fall over and over again. We pick ourselves up until the next time, never seeming to remember that we've done this before. The universe tends to set up these lessons to keep us on our toes. But some of them are more difficult to learn than others. It's only when we hit the ground hard that we remember we're back where we started. Eventually some of us learn what we need to, but many of us are still in the process. Although we continue to fall, the recovery time is much shorter. We may not be able to stop from falling in life, but we can prevent ourselves from getting hurt too badly. Today, learn to fall gracefully. Know that for every mistake you make, you become stronger. There will come a time when you will be able to teach others what you have learned from falling down.
It's fun to mix things up...
(I used to get upset that I was making the same mistakes over and over. But in looking at the situation, I realize that my responses are slowly changing over time. I may not be able to control the situation, but I can control my reaction.)

It's All About Perspective

How can others say that they understand what we are going through? Since everyone has different experiences, then it would seem to be that how we see things would also be different. When we listen to others as they go through their difficulties,we shouldn't be so hasty in giving out advice. For what we do in certain circumstance may be very different from what others would do. Knowing this, the best support we can give is to listen. We need to be mindful that everyone goes through challenging times at some point in life and it is through these experiences, we learn and grow. So when giving words of wisdom to someone, know that we may be hindering instead of helping the person move on their path. Today, be selfless. When someone tells you that they have a problem, listen with your heart not your mind. They may just need to work things out by talking about it. Most people know what to do. They're just afraid to take action. By giving your perspective too quickly, you are taking away their power to resolve the issue themselves. In times like these, just listen.
Viewing the ocean from another perspective...
(Whenever I think about perspectives, I always remember the story about the elephant. How depending on where the person stood near the elephant, their description of the animal would be different. But by putting together  all of the descriptions, we have a picture of the whole elephant. I think that's what we need to remember when sharing our perspectives with others. We can only share our thoughts on the subject. But combining everyone's thoughts, we have better clarity on the the problem at hand.)

The Universe's Message To All

I wish peace to all and harmony within the universe. It is not in the hearts of men to be evil, but it is the spirit of the past which gathers evil. Live a life of purity and all will be well. This message is long lived after all here are gone. It resonants throughout the universe. I will heal the woes and sorrows of all mankind. Peace be to all who hear this message. The universe's messages are now open to you. Be the messenger of the universe. This message is simple and clear. It resonants with all, but only a few will see and hear the light of peace.

Things so beautiful shouldn't be explained...
(I heard the above message while visiting the jade buddha, which was being exhibited throughout the world. I sat amongst buddhist monks and nuns while chanting was heard throughout the room. The public was invited and many came to pray and be in the presence of the large buddha. There are messages which are meant for us alone and there are others that are intended for everyone. There is a time when everyone will come together as one, as they all hear the same universe's message.)

A Quiet Voice Is Heard

Many believe that the louder we speak, the more attention we will receive. This may be somewhat true, but at what point do others stop listening to what we have to say. As children, we threw tantrums trying to get our way, but we soon discovered that our efforts were tiring and fruitless. Yelling doesn't seem to work when no one understands what we are saying. After awhile, we need to be clear about what it is that we are asking of others. What is the point of our drama, when we lose focus of what is important. When we use our words wisely and speak in a quiet voice then all will wait to hear what we have to say. If others do not listen, it's not because they can't hear us, but they are not ready to hear what we have to say. It's not the message that is important, it's the way that we deliver it that remains on everyone's mind. Remember that a quiet voice is heard by all. Today, watch how others communicate with each other. You will find that many try so hard to get their point across that they forget what their message was. Think before you speak and respect your audience. Others will listen carefully when you mean what you say and say what you mean.
A quiet moment...
(Sometimes I wonder how useful protesting is in making a difference. What is the best way to express discontentment? Yelling and screaming at others, may work for some. But I'm not into drama, so this method just doesn't work for me. I guess using a quiet voice may be the best bet for me. At least others will have to stop and listen or else they'll miss my whole message. I guess that's the point. Listen or miss what may be important to your journey.)

Findng Peace In Being Alone

Although being alone may not be the easiest thing to do, it’s a time when we can truly be ourselves. When there is no reason to pretend we are more than what we are. When we are with others, no matter how honest we'd like to be, there is a part of us that remains hidden. It’s human nature to want to project a positive image. When we are alone, there is no one to impress or hide our flaws from. For some of us, we are so used to being someone we are not, that to be ourselves would be strange. In being alone, it gives an opportunity to discover who that person is that we have grown to be. This weekend, set aside some time for yourself. No interruption, just me time. Being alone is a good way to start learning more about yourself.
There is peace in the early mornings...
(I have no problem being alone and shutting down the chatter of others. But I have difficulty being alone with my own thoughts, which tend to run rampant.  It is much more difficult than I imagined. To reflect upon myself for just a moment is almost impossible, when my mind would rather organize the projects I have going on in my life. I'm not sure if it's such a bad idea to have a busy mind when I'm alone. I think giving myself the opportunity to be alone and with my thoughts, wherever they may wander is okay because that is truly who I have become.)

Paving The Way For Others

We know how discouraging it may be, when you work so hard to create a peaceful life then others take away your sense of balance. It's difficult to predict what is not yours to control. Getting upset with the situation is self defeating, for you are the only one who will suffer. You may feel justified in putting the blame on those who seem to take what little you have, but how can you find fault in a situation that you yourself created. You were born to be a nurturer and that is your nature. You would rather be the one in need than not help those you care for, but sometimes that leaves you without. We do not intend for you to suffer for the actions of others. Although it may seem that you are taking the brunt, do not be discouraged. Your selflessness has been recognized and you will journey far beyond what you have imagined. Know that paving the way for others, hasn't been for naught. You are only implementing your universal plan. Today, help others, for in turn you are helping yourself. It is your path to be a generous and compassionate soul.
I'm just catching my breath, before I continue my ride...
(Sometimes when I'm tired, I feel a little sorry for myself. It's as if I give so much to others that I don't have anything for myself. But this feeling doesn't last too long and thank goodness doesn't happen too often. Because I've made it a point in the last few years to do what I feel is right with me. Live a life that has purpose and follow the "knowing".)

A Quiet Goodbye

Although we haven't seen people for awhile, their faces are etched in our mind. It maybe a word or something that we see, that make us recall them at the oddest moments. Thoughout the years that we've known them, it's as if their grace and quiet dignity are timeless. These special people who have touched our life leave us with such fond memories. Although we'd like to hold on to them forever, it is time for them to continue their journey. But before they leave, let's sit for awhile and share a quiet goodbye.
Today, cherish the time you have with your loved ones. For time is a precious thing, because it goes by so quickly.
Spring is finally here for us to enjoy...
(I don't enjoy saying goodbye to those who mean so much to me. I want to remember them as taking a long trip, somewhere that they would love to visit. Then I wouldn't have to say goodbye forever. I would wish them a safe journey and hope to see them soon. Mrs. W - you are in my prayers tonight.)

Looking At Life Hindsight

If we knew what we know now, would we be any better. We might, but then again we'd probably make other mistakes. Life is about making the wrong decisions so that we can learn from them and do better the next time. We may think that we can see things more clearly hindsight, but we are actually just seeing things from a different perspective. It's easy for us to say how we would have done things differently now that time has past. But the reality of it is, that we all live our life the best we can and make decisions based on what is going on at that moment. In life, there are no make overs just do it over. Today, make no excuses for yourself. When the decisions you make are based on what you know to be true, then let them go without regrets. Don't wait to look at things hindsight and think you could have done better. You have all you need to make the right decision.
There are no mistakes in nature...
(I'm famous for looking at things hindsight and thinking I could have and should have. But the time has come and gone. Hindsight is such an evil thing. It can keep haunting you and make you doubt yourself. That's why I make a decision and worry about it later. Usually it's the right one, if I don't over think it.)

Letting Go

So many of us bind ourselves so tightly by rules we've created that we no longer have room to grow. We carefully plan our future, so that we are safe from harm.  We hold judgement over others who are creating new experiences because it's easier to criticize others, than it is for us to face our own fears. When we are ready to let go of the past, the present will be patiently waiting for us. We'll know when it's the right time to let go, when we no longer fear the unknown. Today, be at peace with the decisions you make. Let your decisions be based on what you feel is right. When you think too much, everything seems overwhelming. It is time for you to be okay with who you are.
Looking beyond what is, may be the first step in letting go...
(Although I can't remember too much of the past, it's still difficult to let go of what I do remember because it's made me who I am. But I don't think this is about letting go of our experiences, but to let go what we cling to so tightly that nothing else can come through. There is always an internal fight within, to accept what my inner voice is telling me versus the fears which keep me from moving forward. Letting go is not always so easy.)

Our New Reality

As our world changes, things that aren't supposed to be will be our new reality. We have been lulled into a comfort zone that may not exist anywhere else in the world. While others are living to survive, we live up to others expectations of us. It's not to trivialize our lifestyle, but to be aware that what we have can be easily taken away. Understanding that the world we once knew is changing is the first step in acknowledging that nothing ever stays the same. There is purpose in surviving our new reality. Today, just be.
Driving down the highway is my reality check...
(I know that my reality is changing when my life is no longer the same. I accept what is, for fear that if I don't, I will spiral into chaos. What is reality, but our own perspective to what we believe to be true.)

Let Your Inner Voice Keep You Safe

The world is no longer the way it used to be. Although we are closer than ever with just a click of a button, we still remain strangers with our neighbors. We surround ourselves with people that we care about and set boundaries with others who we aren't familiar with. We sometimes question ourselves when someone makes us uncomfortable because we're taught to  doubt our first impressions. If we believe in what we are feeling and listen carefully, we can keep ourselves from harm. Today, trust how you are feeling. Test yourself by writing down three adjectives about people you are not too familiar with. Then in a month, review what you've written and see how accurate you were. Know that you will be as accurate as your ability to listen to your inner voice.
Find your safe place...
(I think my safe place changes depending on how I'm feeling. I think I'm guided to where I'm supposed to be. At times, it may be a quiet place where I'm alone with my thoughts. At other times, it could be spending time with loved ones. To me, a safe place is where I can be myself.)

Say What You Mean

There are times when we feel strongly about something, yet we are very cautious about sharing with others. There is so much that we have inside that we want to express, but are not brave enough to let it out. We worry about things that are outside of our control that we can't remember what we're going to say. It's time to break out and say what we mean. There is no time like the present to believe in who we are and share what we have to say to the world. Today, know how important you are. You have so much to offer others, just believe in yourself because the world is waiting for you.
Can you hear what this has to say...
(I still have to work on saying what I believe. There is a lot of conversation going on in my mind, but what comes out may not be half of what there is. I may have too many filters, which creates a boundary between myself and others. Take down the curtains then you will hear me speak.)

Looking Forward

If we are so busy concentrating on what others are thinking about us, how can we move forward on our path. Although we may know the general direction we are headed, we become distracted when our minds are busy comparing ourselves to others. We lose focus on what is important when we stop believing in who we are. Knowing we are all gifted with different talents, will help us to mind our business. Listening to our inner spirit will give us the courage to ignore the mindless chatter of others. Today, know your place in the world. Remind yourself that you have purpose in this life and you are where you are supposed to be. No one can tell you that you are less than what you deserve to be, for you are a divine spirit.
Sometimes we need time alone to find ourselves...
(I would like to think that I am looking forward, but sometimes I wonder if that's what I'm doing. I may not be moving my head from side to side, but my body shifts depending on what is going on. When there is so much happening sometimes we need to be more fluid and flow with the energy that surrounds us. I guess that's what I'm doing because it feels right for me.)

No Excuses

Please no excuses. If we believe in ourselves a little more then we wouldn't doubt the choices we make. Is it human nature that makes us second guess ourselves and question what we do? When others tell us things about ourselves that we know to be untrue, why do we make up excuses? Living a life that is true to who we are is difficult when we doubt the decisions we make. It's time to draw upon our inner strength to be ourselves. Not to make excuses for who we are, but to just be. Being happy and at peace is a place that is worth fighting for. Today, be no one else but yourself. No one knows who you are supposed to be but you. There is a place for you wherever you choose to be.
Take a moment to look around you...
(I don't tend to make excuses but when I do I get so upset with myself. It's almost as if someone is talking instead of me. I guess it's like an alter ego that doesn't have the courage to stand up and just be. I would hope that I am who I am at all times, but that just doesn't happen. To care enough to be who I am at all times is something that I continue to struggle with.)

Crying Out For Help

When you are crying out for help, who do you turn to? You profess to be independent and able to do things on your on, yet in time of need we hear your cries for help. We are one and yet we are all. You who pray to no one or say that you have no belief, who are you asking for help? Who do you expect to hear your pleas? We have no answers for you, yet we are here for you. It doesn't matter who or what you believe in because we believe in all of you. We believe that there is hope in the world. We believe that each one of you has a predestined purpose to make a difference in those around you. We rejoice knowing that your cries for help means that some where deep in your heart you also believe that there is a spirit beyond yourself that cares and loves you. We are one and yet we are all. Today, open your heart to what will be. You have a purpose, now live the life that you were destined to lead.
Take your time and enjoy life...
(I've lost track of how many times I've cried out for help. In these moments of high emotions, I think that our need comes from a heart felt place deep within us. It's funny, that some of us may say that we are not especially religious. But when we are asking for help, stop and think about who you are asking. I know who I go for help and I'm always very grateful that I am loved and supported in my journey. My wish for everyone is that they discover that they too are being watched over and cared for.)

Catch Me Before I Fall

Being cautious in life, we sometimes fore go doing things for fear of failing. But if we never fail, we would never be in a position to do better. It is natural for us to fear the unknown, but it's experiencing the unknown that helps us to grow. The universe guides us to places where we need to be. If we are filled with apprehension, we will never be open to the opportunities in front of us. Know that we are always protected and no matter how difficult the challenges are that we go through, the universe is always with us to catch us before we fall. Today, take a chance to do something different. The word for the day is explore. Explore the unknown and the doors to your destiny will open for you.
What may be so beautiful, could also be dangerous...
(Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing. I'm so driven, that it's not often I think twice about what I'm doing. It's like being on a train, once you're on it, you need to enjoy the ride. Knowing that the universe is watching me every step of the way, gives me the confidence to listen to my spirit.)

Daring To Be Different

We admire those who make a difference in the world. Those who stand up for what they believe and impact others. These few march to their own beat because it would be difficult for them to do anything else. No matter how much we may feel that these individuals should be commended for their courage to lead rather than follow trends, we would have difficulty doing the same. It not only takes believing in ourselves, but having the courage to step out of the shadows. Being in the limelight is scary, when we're used to be overlooked. To be able to make a statement that we dare to be different is stepping out of our comfort zone. It is time for us all to support each other in our quest to celebrate who we are and who we'd like to be. It is only through the support of others that we can dare to be different. Today, take a step out of your circle. You've been watching the action from afar for awhile, now is the time to join the people you admire. For you have always been one of the many who will impact the world, if you only have the courage to be yourself.
Hey, I'm trying to be who I am...
(Sometimes it's difficult being different, when I'm the only one who is hearing what I need to do. Not necesssarily leading anyone, but walking a solitary path is what I need to concentrate on. I think if everyone listens closely, they may hear their universal plan. When I doubt myself, I just wait awhile then the message is confirmed. That's how it works...)

Until The Sun Sets

When we awake each morning, it's as if we have so much to do but so little time. We try to fit as much as we can within our waking hours and even then time goes by so quickly. No matter what we have scheduled, we always end up with something more to do. Why we try to do so much is the question that we never seem to wait for an answer. It may be because we're too busy to listen. Filling our day is not a bad thing, but at the end of the day what have we accomplished. If all is a blur, then we may need to stop for awhile and assess what it is that we are truly trying to do. We will always have busy days, but when the sun sets we need to make everything right within ourselves. Let the day begin knowing that we have an opportunity to make each moment count. And let us be grateful for all that we have accomplished as the sun slowly sets before us. Today is your day. You control how your day will be. Let no one take away the joy that is within you. Embrace not only the sunrise in the early morning, but the beautiful sunset that ends each day in a special way.
Stop hiding, experience life...
(I love watching the sun set over the ocean. The colors explode over the water and it's at that moment that everything seems perfect. It's an especially quiet time that makes me feel alone. All the busyness of the day disappears. No matter who I am with, it's as if it's just me and the sunset for those few minutes. I think no matter where you experience the sun setting, if you jot down your thoughts on paper, at that moment, you will be surprised at what you find. Share your writing with someone close to you.)

Turning Within

When we begin finding fault with everyone else but ourselves, it's time to turn within. The weaknesses of others seem to stand out when we don't feel comfortable with ourselves. When we cannot face the emptiness in our life, it's easy to blame others for what we ourselves can not accomplish.  There is no excuse when we behave badly on the pretense that we are trying to help others. When we are content with who we are, then we can become more compassionate of others. Today, reflect upon yourself. Are you conscious of how you are treating others? If you are being critical of others, then it's time to work on yourself. You will see the good in the world, when your spirit is fulfilled.
When you're picking opihi, you have to concentrate on what you're doing...
(Most of the time, I can catch myself before my bad behaviors raise their  ugly head. The sad thing is that it's usually with my family members. They, of course, call me on it. But why find fault in others, when I have my own which I need to work on. It's not about being perfect, but acknowledging my imperfections.)

It's All About Timing

It's funny how when we want something, time becomes so important. We get impatient when we think that it isn't moving fast enough. We try to do everything we can so that we can attain what we want, when we want it. How quickly we revert to child-like behavior when we can't get what we want. Time is a human concept, which we have organized our life around. Without it, we would have only the past, present, and future. If we are able to let go of time and believe in the universal plan that guides us, then we can go about our life in peace. Today, put aside your watches. Let your inner clock direct you as you go through your day. Why rush when you are where you need to be.
Time standing still...
(Sometimes I get impatient when things don't move as quickly as I would want. I understand that I need to be patient and all will work out as it should, but I'm a work in progress. It's as if the universe has a time frame that I'm not privy to. All I know is that I am always where I am supposed to be.)

Making It Count

How many times do we do things without thought? We go through the motions just to get things done. At the end of the day, can we say that we did something memorable. What have we done to make a difference for ourselves, for others? We often times take for granted the 24 hours that we are given everyday to create a life that we've always envisioned. Let's begin by making each moment count.We were not meant to just settle for what comes our way. Today, stand up for what you believe in. It begins and ends with your desire to fulfill your dreams. Have the courage to be different.
We create our own place to be ...
(Can I make each day count? I'm not sure. Sometimes life gets in the way, but isn't that the way it's supposed to be. No excuses. Stopping between the spaces in life to remind myself of my committment to the universal plan.)

Letting Others See Who We Are

Sometimes we get caught up with our daily life that we forget how much we're evolving. Our experiences makes us who we are, if this is true then we are not who we were a year ago, five years ago, or ten years ago. But yet we continue to hold on to our old habits because what we know gives us comfort. So how can we blame our friends and family when they don't know who we've become, if we are hiding behind the person who we were. As we continue to experience life, we learn more about ourselves. Acknowledging our past and accepting that that we are more than what we were, we can begin being transparant to others. Today, be yourself. Don't follow others to their destination, but follow the universal map you were given. There is a reason why you are here.
No matter how much we wait, he's not going moving...
(Talking to a friend, made me question how many people know who I really am. Do I let others truly see who I am? I don't feel as if I am wearing a mask because that would mean that I'm hiding who I am. I think it's more that I am multifaceted,  I am who I have evolved to be.)

A New Beginning

Everyday, we have the opportunity to begin anew. To reflect upon our life and decide if there are any changes that we would like to make. We are not perfect, yet in our imperfections are we doing harm to ourselves and others. As we open our eyes, are we seeing what is there in front of us or are we continuing to hide from the truth. Sometimes when we get caught up in our busy life, our days become routine and no different from the rest. How easily we forget that we have the power to change what is not working. The question is do we want to do anything different from what we have been doing? Life is what we make it. Although we have an opportunity for a new beginning every morning, it is up to us to decide what is best for us. Today, rest your spirit. Be quiet in the moment. Rushing in life, makes us forget what is important. When it's time, all will come together and you will rise to the occasion.
Even nature begins anew...
(It's difficult to remember that I can make changes when I'm caught up in continuing what I've been doing. How nice to think that we can begin anew, but that brings a whole set of new concerns. Why don't I just leave it at that...a new beginning and go from there? No buts, it is what it is. I will think about this more.)

Asking For Help

Although we may think that we know most things, there are times when we need to ask for help. We are not alone in the world, but have the support of many if we just extend our hands. We would be amazed at how many people are waiting to be asked for their assistance. Being able to help others completes the circle of reciprocating what we have been given. For some of us, it's putting aside our pride and being willing to be vulnerable. There are times when we have to acknowledge that we cannot control everything and that our life has become too much for us. Because we are all interconnected, we can get the help we need, if we only ask. Today, help someone in need. You'll be surprised at how much you know. When you accept that you don't know all, the unknown becomes much clearer.
When you believe in yourself, others will too...
(I'm getting better at asking for help, but it's been alot easier to help others. I understand that I can't do everything myself, so I've become open to accepting what I don't know. The more questions I have, I meet those who have the answers. The universe provides me with all I need on my journey.)

Quieting Our Mind

Sometimes after a difficult day, it seems as if we have nothing more to give. We end the day in silence. It is at this time, we could reflect upon what we've accomplished or sit quietly and seek the peace we long for. There is time enough to do all the things we strive to do. Finding serenity when we return home is something to appreciate. Emptying our mind at the end of the day helps us to begin again with renewed energy. Clearing out the debris that clutters our mind can only bring clarity to our thinking. Taking the time to care for ourselves, rejuvenates our spirit. Today, be good to yourself. Turn off all technology and quiet your mind. In the silence, you will hear yourself speak.
Hearing the ocean waves from our window...
(My bliss would be to spend a weekend doing absolutely nothing. Walking along the beach for as long as it takes and listening to the wind.  In the quiet, I may hear what I've been missing.)

Life Levels The Playing Field

Who are we to think we are better than anyone else, when we are all the same? It is human nature to compare ourselves to others so that we may justify our existance. The knowledge that we are no better or worse than someone else seems to pacify us. It seems as if living a life of mediocrity is acceptable. But why are we settling for less than our potential. If we have to compare ourselves to anyone, why not to ourselves. In life, we are all the same. No matter who we are, we struggle to attain our heart's desire and to live a peaceful existence. We are all individual lights of energy, connected for the purpose of creating a healing universe. Today, believe in your path. It's your differences that make you successful. It's time to mark your own trail and see where it leads.
It's easy to lose yourself, when you feel insignificant...
(I believe in life. That sounds strange, but it encompasses so much. Life is ever evolving, giving us a chance to correct our mistakes, to understand the unknown, and to be accepting of others for who they are. I am blessed to part of a universal plan that encompasses everyone. I am no better or worse than anyone else. I am just a part of life as it is.)

Everything Is Possible Under The Sun

It's easy for us to say we believe that there is purpose in life when everything is flowing our way. But as soon as things don't work out so well, we begin doubting the universe. We soon forget what we believe when we get caught up in our struggles. It's not that we have stopped believing, it's just harder to have clarity when we are trying to survive. But our struggles are as much a part of our life as our most peaceful moments. We forget that we are who we have become because of all of our experiences. Whether we are thinking about our purpose or the chaos in our life, we are still who we are. No better or worse. If we believe that the universe has a plan for us, then we need to take each day as it comes. Knowing that whatever comes our way, we can overcome all. Today, take a break. Whatever your struggles are will soon come to pass. Tomorrow is another day, that will bring new opportunities. When there is hope, everything is  possible under the sun.
On days like these, the sun can't come soon enough...
(I have to catch myself every once and awhile because I lose my focus when my world starts to implode. It's not that I question the universe, it's just that an internal battle takes place inside of me. Useless questions becomes rhetorical because there are no answers. Everything is hindsight once the chaos is resolved, but until then I'm blind to what lessons are now in front of me. I know if I just open my eyes, I'll see what I'm supposed to.)

Open The Windows And Let The Fresh Air In

Sometimes we get so caught up with our day to day routine, that we forget that there is more for us to experience. The world which we've created has limited our opportunities. As much as we'd like to experience new things, it just doesn't seem to be happening. Our fear of change has prevented us from exploring beyond our front door. We find that there is safety in the familiar. It's time to open the windws and let the fresh air in. Putting aside our fears, we need to begin exploring what our heart desires. We will never know what is out there, if we don't take the first step beyond our front door. Now is the time to envision all that is possible and give ourselves permission to experience all that awaits us on our journey. Today, begin removing the clutter. Throw away all that you don't need, so you have room to breathe. You are more than what you perceive yourself to be. Create a peaceful environment in which all that you need will flow towards you.

Walk with me for awhile...
(I have found that not everyone lives in an environment that brings peace to their heart. Sometimes we have to create what is not there. By removing all that is not needed, I can breathe again. Clutter brings disturbance to the mind. Then I infuse the room with healing colors and natural elements. When the living space flows with peaceful energy then all that brings me comfort and happiness will come through my door.)
