I really need to do this today. I’ve been lamenting some things lately and it’s time to let go. Sometimes when I feel like I’m having difficulty with things from the past, I remind myself that there’s not one thing I can do about what’s been, but I can ask one simple question, “What now?”
 
The beautiful thing is that we don’t have to have the answer to this question. In fact, the more we can recognize and accept that not only do we not know the answer but that we don’t need to, the more open we become to actually seeing the answer. In our culture, “not knowing” is often judged as weakness. Quite to the contrary, recognizing and accepting that we don’t know actually opens our heart and mind to receiving answers that we could have never imagined possible. It opens us to receiving miracles.
 
We don’t need to know because there’s something within us that does. With practice, we can trust this to lead us and show us whatever we need to know and to show things that “human knowing” could not even dream of. xo

Feeling lost?

It’s often when we feel lost and thrown off balance that we stop and look for alternatives. As much as this can be scary and disconcerting, these times can be our greatest opportunity.

The light within…

It’s been another crazy week trying to settle in and unpack in the new house. I was able to sneak away for a much needed break and have dinner with my dear friend Elaine one evening. (Hi Elaine.) I plan on moving at a little slower pace today.
 
I’m sitting in my office right now with a snoozin’ pup on each end of the sofa. They are as far away from each other as they can get and still be close to me. They seem to be adjusting to their new house. The little one has been having great fun nipping at the toes of all the contractors. He is a handful! Five pounds of feisty!
 
Have a beautiful Saturday.

Thank you.

I’ve seen a lot of things through what some call prayer. I’ve had profound experiences, have been healed of many things, and have seen others healed. I don’t really call it prayer and haven’t for some time. There are so many ideas and preconceived notions attached to some of these words that I don’t find helpful, but for the purposes of discussion, I’ll refer to it as prayer for now.

I find such a deep sense of solace in this idea. I know this is true. I’ve seen it too many times.
Years ago all doors closed in my life so that I had nowhere to live except one place…dad’s house. (My mother passed when I was thirteen after a long illness.) My relationship with my father was a challenging one so the idea of living with him was not particularly high on my list. I had been having very profound spiritual experiences for years at this point, and although my feelings toward my dad had softened, I still didn’t want to live with him. I felt like this was backward move and was very perplexed by it.

People see us through their own lens of experience. The way they see us is colored by their fears, their pains, their expectations, hopes and many other factors. Sometimes they will judge us harshly and there’s not one thing we can do about that. We can recognize that even though we are still learning in life and aren’t perfect, we have intrinsic value, beauty and worth…and there’s nothing we can do about that either. Wink. Just like the gold can’t be separated from the ring, our beauty and worth is forever the substance of our being. (Even if we are not expressing it fully.)
But this only the half the story–It’s equally important for us to extend this same standard to others. We find our own freedom by giving it to others and the more seeming evidence and justification there is to withhold this, the greater opportunity there is for us to set ourself free. We can be determined to give to others that which we dearly want others to give to us. Although this isn’t always easy to do, it is worth every effort.
But don’t take my word for it. Let your own experience show you. xo
