To Be True

standing namaste

So often during times of personal growth and expansion into self, we can find ourselves struggling in surroundings that seemed so comfortable and familiar before our transition into this new space. Family and friends become reticent, relationships unsettled.  We are blossoming into harmony within as the world without seems to crumble.

We need not own that struggle. We need not judge those who seem to be hanging behind, unwilling to change, as we move into these new frontiers or feel slighted as they perceive us as weird or difficult to understand.  There is room for us to all be who we will be.  The important part is to stay true to who you are…no matter what.

Remember, you are what you are…and what a lovely you, you are…just the way you are!

Love in action

Love in action 2

Compassion is love in action.

When you are compassionate with others, you accept them in a space of humble kindness.  You are not excusing action or inaction on their part, rather you are fully acknowledging that the action or inaction is theirs and they are trying to do their best to be their best.

When you are compassionate with yourself, you invite the richest form of healing and growth imaginable within your deepest Self, knowing you are doing your best to be at your best.

Feel the love…unconditionally.

Feel compassion.

Next Steps

How easy it is to get bogged down in the “what if’s”, to perceive experiences as negative, missed opportunities, or wasted efforts.

What if…instead we believed, truly, down to the core, that everything that happens — even all of these things that seem like mistakes, chances gone by, and dead ends —  happens just as intended?

What if…instead of making New Year’s resolutions, we simply resolve to maintain resolve?  Facing each moment with openness, acceptance, and love?

What if…instead of holding onto expectations and outcomes, we could see each day as a shiny, unwrapped gift, reveling in the thrill and wonder of that moment?

What if…it is all unfolding precisely as it should; every botch, bobble, and blunder just the next step in the great adventure known as YOU?
