When we can truly move into alignment with our true Self and fully connected to Source, God, Creator, the Universe (use whichever name resonates most with you), we move into a state of allowing God’s Grace to flow freely. We don't stand in the way and get upset that the current is getting stronger and stronger and that the paddling upstream is exhausting us.
When we move into alignment with our true Self, everything becomes easy. It takes practice. It isn’t easy until we get there, but it IS worth it. It is a road less traveled--a road full of mystery and unknowns. It is a road that will lead us to great treasures, miracles and blessings that shower us along the way at the most opportune times, only if we dare to embark on this journey.
When we say Yes! to life, when we say Yes! to living fully, the doors can open wide. It takes our commitment in order to walk this road less traveled. It takes a great deal of courage and strength. It takes much more than we realize at first. But once we set foot on it, there is no turning back. We could, but when we do, we realize that our mindset and attitude towards the world have changed. We realize that we are less able to tolerate that which is out of alignment with true Love and our Soul’s desire. When we continue to walk our new path, we take time to rest when needed and ideally we continue on when we are replenished.
We tend to forget at times that we are always supported along the way. We may argue that friends and even some family members have dropped away and that our support system has actually shrunk. What I am speaking of are the higher realms of Light assisting us, surrounding us with utmost Love and Grace if only we are open to receiving; if only we are willing to feel their presence. It is not for their sake that we need to acknowledge them. It's for ours. It's so we can feel connected and supported; for us to feel their Love and commitment to serve us, work with us, move forward together with us. Through our appreciation for them, we can recognize that new friends are stepping in to support us when we allow them to take that place within our lives.
There is nothing more important for us than to shine our Light. Whenever we dim our Light, we render a great disservice to the whole, for we are all interconnected. It is important that we reach out and ask for support from those who have shown up to heed the call together with us. When some drop away, it is because space needs to be created for a new and maybe different, more serving kind of support. Support that is in alignment with where we are vibrationally, in alignment with our path and purpose, in alignment with being able to give us that which we need to move to the next level of understanding.
Yes, it is all about understanding from within our Heart. When we understand what is going on in our life, when we can see what is transpiring from a higher perspective, we can see this world through eyes of Love and a Heart filled with Peace. When we reach that place, it is for us to remember this place in those moments where things seem to go utterly awry. That way, we can reach back to that strength of knowing that we are truly loved and supported whenever we need to feel it.
This is essential for us to be able to go on in times of seeming disarray. When things seem to be totally falling apart. We need to look for proof that good things are happening too. We need to look for signs which support our view of the world becoming a better place. We need to focusing on the Light--on that which we wish to see more of in the world. This is just as much a reality as that which is coming up for review, that which is rearing its ugly head while it is being ushered out of a world that is no longer willing to tolerate injustice and greed.
We are all working together; those who upset us, as well as those who serve us. When we have an upset with someone, it is in order to help us shift into a new level of being, a new level of commitment to ourselves, a new level of serving our purpose, or speaking our truth and of living in alignment with our Soul.
When we find that this is true, then we can come to the conclusion that anytime something “bad” happens, it is all for the higher good; it is meant to help us shift our approach as to how we are in the world. It is not an invitation to give up and stick our head in the sand. It is an invitation to walk our talk, to hold on to our beliefs and to act upon them with Grace and Love. Love for ourselves, and with that Love for those we interact with. For only when we honor ourselves first – from a non-selfish place – can we honor others fully.
We first have to love ourselves before we can truly love others. It is the same with commitment, with honoring, with listening, with answering. When we leave ourselves out of the equation in an effort to be of service to others first and to be self-less, we are in truth abandoning ship, for such service cannot last. We have to take care of ourselves before we can truly take care of others.
This does not mean that we are meant to not serve others; it just means that when we are strong by loving ourselves wholeheartedly, with all our quirks and seeming faults, we can have true Love for others as well. Then we can embrace them fully for all they are, the Joy, the sadness, the anger, the confusion. Then we can really serve; serve from a place of holding space for their current experience, knowing that it too shall pass.
Life is made up of ups and downs. We are here to Experience, yes Experience. Experience is about the whole picture. It is about living life fully, about allowing ourselves to feel all of it, about finding ways that work for us in regard to being with it and growing from it; bringing ourselves to a greater place of understanding what unconditional Love truly is all about. It is about remembering who God/Source/Universe is; a vast, endless sea of Love. A Love that is so majestic that it is yet incomprehensible to the human mind.
We are here to expand our limited human mind to that of the God mind. We are always connected to it, we just haven’t tapped into it yet. Maybe some of us have gotten a glimpse of it now and then. But for the majority of humanity, as of yet, it is still far from being the norm. One day it will be and that’s when we are truly enlightened.
When we can see the world, ourselves and others through God’s eyes and mind, everything will change for the best. Being patient with ourselves and others will be easy and natural, and with that Peace is restored within our Hearts and minds.
So be it.
