Thoughts, words, actions, purpose.

Dear one, have you gone off script, wandered away from your chosen path, slipped and fallen away from the dreams of your youth?

You can get yourself back on the path to the thriving life you dream of. You can right your course, re-calibrate your position and reorient your life once again to what really matters to you.

Begin by discerning what is most important to you, what you will focus on with your heart and spirit and passion, something that will tap into your talents and skills, that will be of benefit to you and will bless this Earth and all creatures. Something you will never tire of throughout your life, something that floats your boat, makes you happy, spins your top!

Now is the the time to step out into the light, to take a stand for what you wish to create in your life and the lives of your children and grandchildren, the web of life on Earth.

Every thought, action , every word you generate reverberates and ripples through the web of life.

When your thoughts words and actions line up with your dreams, you become a powerful creator.

So, be mindful of your thoughts. Do you diminish yourself or others in your mind? There is powerful energy in your thoughts, They are the precursor to creation! Begin to pay attention and gradually shift them to reflect what you want in life, what you want for others, the best of you.

Choose your words with care for they carry the energy to harm or heal. Your words are powerful. You can choose to hurt or elevate others or yourself with words. You can use words to gradually create the life you want or keep yourself and others small and boxed in by hurtful language.

Let your actions line up with the true and deep needs of your spirit. Let your physical presence and the expressions of your body carry out your soul’s purpose, to make it manifest here on this planet.

Think about your purpose here, in this body at this time, in this place. Are you digging deep into the vein of gold that lies under the surface appearances of life? Are you listening to the whisperings of your heart and spirit, the hidden treasure deep down among the bedrock or do you see only the surface appearance of your inner landscape, unaware of the riches at your center?

When you long to connect with your true purpose, you can make it happen. With practice, desire, persistence, you too can tap into the amazing treasure at the core of your being where your purpose and the source of all things intersect.

When you know your soul’s purpose and open up to spirit, you tap into abundance beyond measure.

Who are you?

Beneath the trappings, the makeup, daily rituals, the job, your knick-knacks and belongings, your culturally approved clothing, your shiny phone, who are you?

At the center of your being, the heart and soul of you… Beneath the layers of manners and civilization, deeper than your book learning, your schooling, your domestication, who are you?

Continue to peel the layers away as you go inward.  Search for what lies underneath the surface veneer of your life.  At your deepest  level, Who are you? What is your soul’s purpose here on Earth?

If you get the answer: “My purpose is to make a lot of money!”, try again…That might be a secondary benefit resulting from your alignment with your purpose and mission.  You might be good at it, it might feel good, but you must dig even deeper!

What treasures lie hidden or dimly remembered in your heart? Can you bring them to the light and tap into that deep well of passion, inspiration and inner power that will enrich and satisfy your spirit and fuel your life?

When  you tap into your depths you will discover a deep well of life within you!  The abundance of spirit is so much more than you could ever imagine! 

 

Book learning and heart wisdom

As you have gained in book learning, – “the 3 Rs” science, and technology, you have forgotten and minimized the ancient and powerful wisdom of your heart.

What good is your technical knowledge if you are seething with anger and rage? Who cares if you can recite a speech, a pledge, an epic poem if you have no empathy and compassion for your fellow earth inhabitants? Who cares that you have statistical “proof” that all is well when you feel unhappy, heartsick and physically ill?

Emotional wisdom is far more important to your survival as a species than book learning. Feel the emotion in your body, name it, put your awareness on it. Breathe and feel.

It won’t bite. I might make you feel uncomfortable. Can you live with uncomfortable? Do you want to numb the discomfort? Try to stay with it. If you can’t, find someone who can help you through this.

Be your own best friend! Accept the feelings as they come and go. If you reject an emotion you reject yourself. Love and accept yourselves and allow your feelings to be what they are. Learn from them.

True riches, the infinite fountain of abundance are only to be found by those who look inward with compassion and courage.

It takes your so called guts to live a beautiful life here on this planet where uncertainty reigns, where nothing is guaranteed, where life is exquisitely beautiful, where death is a given.
