Today may you find encouragement and peace..within the words in this space..within life, and within your heart.
Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries. – Corita Kent
Each moment, I have a choice. I may choose to live, or to not live. That simple. I choose to live, and I choose to live fully! I invite you to join me in this choice.
There may be an external circumstance–or multiple external circumstances–which could cause me to feel “less than”. Understandable. I invite you to transform this moment with me. I invite you to look for the positive even among “less than”..to keep your vision clear and the path to your heart barrier free regardless of external circumstances. I invite you to boldly and uniquely dare to be different!
This evening, on my way to a graveyard shift to work, I walked out of the living space of my boat to the cockpit. Hands full, mind occupied, thinking of some things I do not have that affect my life, and quite a long “to do” list…
As I closed the hatch, I took a deep breath. I felt the stillness around me. Felt it. No wind, slight current..stillness. Thank you for stillness! How often do I allow my self to be so beautifully still. I breathed in stillness. Received abundant love. Thank you for abundant love! Hands still full, mind still occupied but turned off so I could now Feel the night around me. Thank you for the ability to Feel, to love, to Live!
Heart now full of Gratitude and Love I looked to the night sky. Yes, I was to get ready for work, but these moments..this stillness, this love, this gratitude, this night..were for me to treasure. I made the choice to take the time to revel in the glory of them. I stood in the cockpit and allowed Night to fold me in, envelop me in stillness, and love on me. Thank you Night!
Moon was just a sliver, oh but a radiant sliver surrounded by stars glistening brightly. Moonbeams touched my boat, reflected upon the harbor water. Hope, dreams, joy…in the night sky. Thank you Moon, thank you Stars..thank you Universe for Light and the ability to See!
I allowed this energy into my Being, and then I practically skipped to the shower..so in Love..so full of Gratitude!
I choose to live and I choose to live fully!
If I chose any other way to exit my boat..let’s say I let the weight of all that I didn’t have, of doubt, fear, worry to lead me..so I shuffled my way to the shower, then to the car, then to work..barely noticing anything around me..upset at night for being dark and exacerbating “less than”..you may understand and even identify with that. Perhaps it is the way you would choose as well..allow weight to obscure your vision and act as a barrier to your heart. Allowing external to control my inner being is quite a common choice.
However, I choose to allow my Internal to create my external…I choose to celebrate all that is presented to me..as the Gift that it truly is. Whatever “it” is in the moment. I am inviting you to try new and different. To clear your vision, remove barriers to your heart, breathe deeply, and to allow the moment you are in to be presented to you as a Gift. To Feel the moment as it truly is, not as you perceive it to be. To allow the Love, the energy, the awe of that moment to touch your heart and spark your courage, your passion, *you* to Live, and to live fully!
I share with you a video I find very powerful and inspirational. There is a series on YouTube called Ashes and Snow that speaks to something deep within me and allows me to say “yes please” to life, love, creating..to abundant everything and to living fully! When I say yes, please..*everything* truly is possible!
I invite you to watch this video..and perhaps to check out the other videos on YouTube..then to say “yes please” to all that is presented to you. May you choose to live and live fully!
