Life calls you with a powerful voice! Do you block out the sound of her voice with static in your mind, addictions, petty time wasting amusements?
Life pulls you forward like a magnet toward your highest good if you will allow it! Do you resist the pull and hold on to the past to what is with an iron grip? Do you get stuck in the quagmire of your fears? Do you live life with your nose stuck in a shiny electronic device? Dear ones, that sounds like half a life to me.
Life desires your full participation, your clarity and focus. Do you cloud your clarity with excess busyness, with no time to rest, constant activity, anxiety and churning hamster-wheel thoughts?
You have been given the most amazing gift of life! The life force within you requires that you move forward; that you continue to expand and become like a rosebud opening. If the rosebud failed to open , it would soon wither and die.
Life asks that you grow and change and evolve and allow the effortless unfolding process- the blossoming of the man or woman you were born to be.

You are not alone, dear ones. Many have navigated through the boredom, the fear, the feeling of being stuck, the resistance, the half lived days, the addictions… You can do it too. Ask for help if you need it…Others who’ve traveled the same journey can help guide you.
If you have been holding yourself back, when you are ready, you can gently let go of the bank and allow the river of life to carry you forward into your next big adventure!
Dear ones, I have witnessed among you delightful two legged ones many distractions and detours of thought and action that keep you from your most treasured goals and dreams.
You too have access to grace, the state of oneness with all things. Grace is no consciousness of self as you move easily through life. You have no second guessing, no doubt, you exist completely in the here and now.

You often distract yourselves and take yourselves out of the stream of life with time wasters, glitzy attention grabbers, shiny objects, preconceived notions, career trivia, Mom and Dad’s agenda for you, pain in the body or emotions…
Gradually you’re pulled off the track into the weeds. Have you sacrificed the most precious treasure of your life – your time – to distractions by others? Those with louder voices, bigger paychecks, overpowering egos, higher positions, a bigger following, more success, more stuff?
If so, it is time to haul yourself back to your true and rightful path – your life’s work, your soul’s delight, your calling. You un-rooted ones must make like a tree and ground yourself daily, hourly, if you need to.
Pull yourself back to the center of your life, let go of your grip on the distracting elements around and in you. Simply notice your distraction and align yourself again and again with the source of your purpose, your soul’s work.
You are the sovereign of your own energy, your own life. Learn to focus fully on your life’s passions and the distractions will fall away. You will once again live in a state of grace.
