Love is not merely "romantic" ... And it is not kept for only relationships with others. Love is a dynamic field of potential where ANYTHING is possible.
I do not have a fabulously flashy life. I don't travel to exotic places. I don't have a successful career. I don't live in a perfect dream house. I DO have a fabulous life though. It is simple. It is quiet. It is peaceful. And it is perfectly lovely most of the time. (mom life is sometimes brutal of course)
And in the midst of all that is going on, there is this beautiful lovely stillness that I can intentionally choose to step into. And it creates a sense of peace ...
This appreciation is LIFE. It is the energy that creates the expansion that brings more of your desires and dreams and hopes to your view.
There is something in each of us that is MEANT for us. Your only job is to find it and embrace it. Whatever it is, it doesn't matter. Do what you LOVE. When you do, your "job" won't be a job at all, instead it will be a gift you offer the world.
Believe in the potential that exists in the "unseen" world and know that you can make that world seen if you have the courage to step outside of what you know and see and into the world of light.
Who you are, who you wish to be, what you admire in others ... these can all be the same! Just focus on those attributes which you think are beautiful, strong, and desirable, and then embrace them in your life. Cultivate them if you don't believe you currently have them. Look at the qualities in others and look for ways to integrate them into your own experience. You can be who you want to be. You can claim ANY beautiful qualities that you desire if you want to. Just choose who you want to be and then go for it. Become that person.
The worth of a soul is not defined and counted among the "worthy" by anything that you see here in this place we call earth. The worth of a soul is not FROM here and therefore cannot be defined in earthly terms ... it is unchangeable, it is infinite, it is perfectly wholly worthy at all times, in all things, and in all places. No. Matter. What.
I believe that as we focus on unity and let go of the need to control and make everyone fit into the box we believe they should fit into, we will bring about a healing and a change to the world that will cleanse and replenish and lift up and lighten and brighten and strengthen and make way for peace.
Spiritual things are interesting. They are very easily cast off as "random" or "that dream was your midnight snack talking" or "coincidence" or "crazy" or whatever ... it is EASY to disbelieve things that you can't see. It takes much more strength and absolutely takes FAITH to believe in things that are not apparent on our physical world.
The girl at the top of the tree didn't even really care or worry about anyone else and how "crazy" they thought she looked. She was so focused on her goals and her effort that what anyone else was doing was irrelevant. And so she kept sawing away, telling herself that her effort would produce good results, working at the branch in focus and then continuing forward to the next branch. Over and over, effort and determination ... never wavering. I stood at the bottom of the tree looking up at her. I had knowledge of BOTH mindsets. I understood the girl in the tree and her "way" and why she was doing it MORE than the people at the bottom of the tree ... to me, in the dream, those beneath the tree didn't see the whole picture. And yet, I was still at the bottom of the tree looking up.
Each of us has a unique "brand" of being. A way to live, a way to love, a way we exist that is unlike any other. It is entirely unique to us. It looks like no other, it acts like no other, it talks like no other and that is as it SHOULD be. You are here to be YOU. You are here to discover what is within YOU and to embrace that and offer THAT to the world.
