Sometimes I think we are just too smart for our own good. We look out at life and see the ripples and waves of complexity…we go frantically in search of this thing or that thing that we think will bring us that sense of peace, wholeness and contentment. But, what if you knew that kind of quest would only ever be fruitless if searching outside yourselves? What would you do then?
Do you think that in such times, the tiny little aches from within your own heart might seem like a bit more than just the echoes and tingles of past pain or your own seeming failures? What are your regrets? Did you know that these things….these things we try so very hard not to think about are THE very things begging you for greater understanding? Holding these as uninvestigated nagging little somethings without our concerted attention, creates only fear, self-loathing and disease or discomfort? We don’t need pills, a bottle, busy work or hobbies to stave off the pain. What we need is love…a big dose of healthy self-love, compassion, connectedness and understanding.
The world will give us nothing but more reminders of those tiny little nagging cracks in the core of our hearts. As much as it might seem so, this is not cruel. It is by design. These are not horrible moods or emotions but messengers of hope, faith and love. How on Earth could this possibly be?- You might think. Truly, however, it is only a slight shift in understanding that could make this a little easier to grasp. Within you is a limitless store of magic, untapped-energy, light, love and gratitude. All that prevents your awareness or awakening to your own inner divine truth is the fear to investigate that which nags you to your core.
To get to the bottom of these nagging little fears and pains you must realize that it is wholly unnecessary to root out all possible causes or other-worldly seeming origins. Sometimes, all that is needed is your full awareness and presence of these little nagging urgings into fear or anger or some other uncomfortable emotion. Sometimes, simply acknowledging their existence while breathing with intent into a moment and showing yourself great compassion, understanding and gentleness is all that is necessary. Imagine talking to yourself with gentleness as you would a young child in need of wise counsel.
You have walked so many miles on your path. You have covered great distances. You have learned awesome, important and amazing things. You have accomplished so much in your journeying. Relax into this awareness and breathe deep within your core the gentleness of a single ray of glorious sunlight, a cool and gentle breeze, or the beautiful and powerful music of wind rustling in glorious leaves….it is much more simple than you can imagine.
Relax you, your resistance and move into peace. Flow like a stream as your truest intuition guides you, follow the true calling of your hearts and feel the blessings therein. They are many and of infinite value just awaiting your discovery. Know that you can heal through living with the greatest integrity towards self. You can achieve greater contentment not through things or striving to be better than anyone else but through connecting with your presence and through your presence, the Spirit of nature and the All of Everything. It is not so complex. Intent is all that is needed. Willingness to explore is all that is needed. Faith is a must…a true faith in yourselves and your own energy to begin. So, just begin.
May your God or Goddess bless and carry you ever more fully into your trues core life purpose with every breath and step. Feel for the truth of you, breathe through the essence of you and through that essence, the connected consciousness of everything.
