Everything is Already in My Life!


Welcome to my peace filled space.  Thank you for joining me here!

I woke to unexpected rain..on a day that sunshine would have been particularly nice.  Yes, I know about internal radiance, opening my heart to access that radiance, then sharing that *radiance* with those around me. But a little external help would have been wonderful:)

“Unfolding” allows me to Feel all within as it surfaces.  Not to label, judge, or criticize the Feeling or Self for allowing them..simply to Feel.  Not to bury, layer upon, numb..simply to Allow.  Not to try to explain, understand, know..simply to Be.

Any discomfort or lack I Feel is “mind” trying to exert control over the moment.  As I release mind and settle into heart space: discomfort and “lack of” are effortlessly, joyfully replaced with extreme comfort and abundant ‘more than’..

It occurs to me that I am conditioned to believe in certain Truths which no longer fit me…in releasing these mainstream Truths, I am allowing for magic far beyond anything I can imagine or vision..to touch my life and the lives of those around me. 

When I honor my heart whispers, I am honoring Universal Flow, Faith, Love..I am honoring *you*..

As I write, warmly bundled in the boat, rain lightly tapping on the surfaces of the boat and windows..soft music on, the glow of candlelight mirroring that within my heart..I have this to share with you:

This moment is perfect as it is.  I choose to either accept the moment as it is presented to me and allow it to unfold naturally..or to create new and different in the moment. It is my choice.  External circumstances neither guide me nor have the power to redirect my steps..I choose where to step by either accepting what is being presented to me, or creating new and different within it.   

When I allow the moment to unfold naturally, I am embracing Universal Flow.  This is extremely power filled. There is no cap..no limit.. to what may be allowed for or created with Universal Flow.  If I am ‘stuck’ I may release barriers, layers, fear to access a deeper region within my heart space..and this will allow me to soar ever higher.  I may soar as high and as far as I allow my self to.  There is nothing external holding me back, down, *here*…when I choose to soar, I will

I allow for my self to be re-created, re-membered, re-invented..each moment that I tap into Universal Flow.  My life is a series of moments of experimenting, exploring, discovering, creating, investigating, enjoying, playing.   I want to see how far may I stretch, how many colors may I use, how purposeful may I allow my steps to be, how wide may I open my arms.  I want to know: what does this taste like feel like smell like sound like…

Fear is not a crutch.  Fear is naturally the opposite of love.  If love is present in abundance, there is no room for fear..if fear is present I know to apply love to it.  I do not criticize it or belittle it, or in any way put it down; rather I embrace fear, fold it in, and walk with it.  Fear motivates me to access my heart space, fear allows me to know my self intimately, fear inspires me to create in a different way. 

I am surrounded by utter beauty, magnificence, glory.  The sky above me, the ocean underneath me, the hills beside me..the sun rise, the sun set, the moonbeams and stars..the people perfectly placed reflecting to me All that I may see easily as well as All I may need reminding of….

Everything is already in my life: everything. is. already. in. my life.  At my fingertips, waiting patiently for me to release that which I am clutching/clinging/resistant to let go of..and open my hands, my arms, my heart..to: everything! 

I do not have: to do, accomplish, strive for, climb up, fight against, struggle, exert, pull/push, strain… I only have to open my arms to all that is..effortlessly..

Much peace,

    Thank you my *everything*…your words are pure wonderful wisdom that have greeted me this morning!

    Your definition of “fear” and how to live with it is so simplified and respectfully accepting of. What you present is a ‘working’ model for us that lacks complication and perplexion.

    Looks like were getting a taste of “June Gloom” a bit early here in the California’s…bit of a tease of sun one day (like today) then heavy gray overcast (like yesterday). One can understand why many California Native American Indian villages were located inland…far enough inland to where they would stop to lunch during their trek back on some of the clams, mussels, etc. that they collected. These “dump sites” of shells can be found pretty far from the coastal strip!

    NO…they did not have any *Marinas* back then.

      Hi Rand,
      Thank you for your comment..wisdom is a nice way to greet the morning..:) Fear doesn’t have to be the “thing” that closes us down or stops our stops, fear may be our friend who motivates and inspires us to move past stagnant…into wonder filled…
      I love the weather..constantly changing..keeps life interesting:)

    Hi Joy,
    Beautiful. This is one of my favorite things: “This moment is perfect as it is.” To savor in the beauty of what is even if it’s not what we expected. To be so in tune with our experiences that we embrace each and every moment, even when the sun is not shining. 🙂
    Thanks for always providing such a loving space for reflection. Loving blessings!

      Hi Andrea,
      Thank you! I have been allowing my self to See and Experience the perfection of each moment as it is rather than trying to manipulate it or change it..and to allow the Fullness of the moment to enliven my Spirit far past what I could imagine. When the sun is not shining, there is much else to see..and to enjoy…sometimes I am so focused on the warmth or brilliance of the sun, I forget to look beyond that to all else..

    Hello Joy,

    Thank you for these beautiful thoughts. Especially meaningful to me is ….As I release mind and settle into heart space.. because as an artist I feel that I am most creative when I can do this.

    “When I honor my heart whispers, I am honoring Universal Flow, Faith, Love..I am honoring *you*
    this passage also struck a cord with me this morning.

    Thanks again for these beautiful passages!
