designer luxury upholstered furniture“The man who fell into an upholstery machine is fully recovered”!

When I read this funny little comment, I laughed and then started to think about how all of we human beings have really fallen into an upholstery machine and have been recovered by the world we live in.

Have you been upholstered into what others may want you to be (Mentally, Physically, Emotionally or Spiritually)?

I believe today I will be aware of my upholstery and make sure it is right for me!

Peace, love, light  and blessings!

No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Persist and persevere, your desired path remains possible!

Peace, Love, Light and Blessings

I have spent most of my life searching…for love, purpose and acceptance… And half way through, for happiness and peace…in this search I barked up wrong trees…desperately trying to find what already existed, little did I know, it lived within me… I chased status, money, possessions, the career, popularity, academia, relationships, and power…

The more I chased the further removed I became from myself… The more life challenged me, the more I denied who I was, and the more life became confusing and complicated… And to worldly demands, I became appeasing. Everytime I doubted who I was…or doubted the love of the One behind my creation… I was losing part of ME…

One day, I came to realize I lost it. I lost me and the legacy of where I had come from… In striving for wordly acceptance and perfection, I lost me… I stepped into a world of falsehood… Placing value on all the wrong things and putting my Energy into the wrong places, I tried to ‘plan’ for the future… Which brought worrying about the past…to be ‘responsible’.

I wanted the perfect life, the perfect family, a perfect me… But instead… I was given.. a Journey to walk, full of trials and tribulations… Gracefully given a flawed family to bless me with teachings… and an imperfect me to have a teachable spirit..

My search has since come full circle…and right back to me… My search for love outside of myself, in worldly things and in people is not over, but is in transformation. I try to live In the now and revel in the present… I look inward, to the One, the Greater Energy that lives within me, that IS me. This spirit, this consciousness connects us to other beings, to the pulse of mother earth and all its creations.

This pure Light, this pure energy is a reflection of the universal truth… that we are all One. Our personal truths are ones of beauty, love and creativity… May your light shine bright and let It guide you…When you feel lost, confused or despair, look for it…

This spirit has lived many lives… It holds sacred knowledge… Has seen through many eyes, and will never give up on you… It carries You… If you let it… Know and remember always, my girl, that You are a precious spiritual being… YOU are Loved..

Cracked Pot - Waters the flowersAn elderly woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments
but the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”

The old woman smiled, “Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side“?

‘That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them..”!

“For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table“.

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.’

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

SO, to all of my cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

Have you ever noticed that when you perceive that you have too much to do, or you have to do things in a day that you really would prefer not to do, that you really struggle getting out of bed?

I just fell into the old trap of not having choice again so  I chose to sleep in!

Now I have prolonged the whole process, so today I am going to learn to find joy in doing the things I do not want to do because I know that joy comes from me, not from what the outside wants me to do!

Peace, love, light and blessings on this joy filled day of moments!

For many years of my life I tended to blame others for who I was, where I was at in my life, and what I could and could not become.  All of these things were not up to me, it was in fact for other people to decide based on their issues and their problem…..Not mine!

In a strange way, someplace within me I knew that this was a smokescreen meant to keep me safe and secure in old behaviors and ways of being that I believed were comfortable for me!  I couldn’t have been more wrong for me in that moment!

One day I had the realization that time was going by and I had not shifted, readjusted my needs, wants, feelings and beliefs to fit with where I was on that day!

What a realization, I was 20 years behind myself!

It was time to change but how on earth was I to do that?

I worked and worked at attempting to come up with a plan and finally I got it!  Just be me, but I certainly had no idea of what that meant and who I was!  That is the day I began to live in the moment and be really focused in that moment as it arose!

I learned that:

  • Being in the moment is being me
  • No one really knows themselves unless they do live in the moment
  • My thoughts change momentarily
  • My behaviors change momentarily
  • My feelings change in an instant
  • No two situations are identical, nor have they ever been identical
  • My beliefs change with me as I learn and grow
  • I am totally responsible for me
  • I am response able for my actions, I decide
  • My thoughts create my reality
  • I choose it all in my life
  • THEREFORE, I create it all ….my thoughts, behaviors, feelings and beliefs!

Knowing these things today has freed me from having to put up smokescreens with my behaviors and actions to keep me safe…..I have learned to be safe, just as I am, in this moment, right here, right now and I do have the choice in this moment to be me, real, alive and move from moment to moment with or without any preconceived beliefs and outcomes.

Peace, love, light and blessings
