Thank you for joining me today. What a beauty filled day it is:)
I want to share with you a short story.
Last week there were two external situations that cried out for my attention. Peace is a priority in my life, so when external “drama” tries to invade that peace I stand strong. If I don’t feel particulary strong, I fortify that strength by praying and meditating, raising my vibration, praising what is good, exploring in nature, and opening my heart fully to the moment. In my life, peace is the foundation of all else; when I am peace filled, Energy flows abundantly and I am Aware of All. In the past, when something threatened to attack my peace I would feel ‘less than’ and allow myself to be drawn into drama; exhausting, draining, and a barrier to all else until it was resolved. Now, I recognize the Divine within…I protect my Peace and I fortify. What I focus on grows, so I focus on Peace.
My truth is: Peace is the foundation of my life.
Saturday morning was an overcast one..heavy clouds, no sunshine, kind of cold. I woke questioning is it worth it to preserve my Truth? If I am questioning, I am in my mind, so I decided to recenter to my heart space. Trying to raise my vibration, I decided to embrace the day and let Beauty guide me. I chose to go to the local Farmer’s Market..I *love* fresh fruit, flowers, the Greek stand with hummus. I love juicy peaches, oranges that explode in my mouth, tart cherries, sweet apples…
Mmm, my heart was full of joy..complete, pure joy…
Letting my heart lead, I then decided to take some time to explore the shops in the downtown area. I thought I would cross through the park to get to the main street. As I crossed the park, I found this tree….I am absolutely in love with this tree. My entire being loves this tree. So, I photographed it, trying to capture the essence. Notice the sunshine peeking through..even though it was a cloudy day. This tree was full of Light. I stood under it, just basking in the essence of the tree. Touched it. Gave praise for it. I chose to be in the presence of the tree. I anticipate many more visits to this tree.. I shall bring my journal, my drum, a picnic, a sketch book…
My goodness..*I love this tree*!
And fully in love, I went about my day..pratically soaring above it all, my feet barely on the ground..so in love with my tree….
(Thank you for hanging in there with me..there is a beauty filled ending to my story)..
I shared my photos with a friend. I believe that everything has a meaning..and since I fell in love with this tree, it must be relevant somehow. I really thought that my friend would ask me what type of tree it was so I looked up the meaning. This lovely tree is a fig tree, and a fig tree symbolizes peace and truth..
I fell in Love with Peace and Truth!
And *that* my friends is exactly how the Universe works..
When I allow my heart to remain open.
