You know, sometimes all that is needed for me to open my heart a bit wider, to let the light in, and to trust that all is well, is to listen to someone sharing their wisdom and truth.
I lose faith.
I often don´t trust.
And that brings me down.
It makes me feel despair and lose hope.
But when I am reminded of the hope, of the beauty and of the ways to return to trusting the universe I can feel the glow of my soul expand.
And that is what happened this morning.
She reminded me that when things suck, or appear to suck, all I have to do is go within. Go into meditation and find that sense of presence. That feeling of presence is a spark of awakening.
It is knowing that all is well.
It is the knowing that everything is connected and beautiful.
And yes, that might sound like bullshit when Mama Earth is being abused, and people are being hurt and killed and people are starving.
But if we allow ourselves to go straight to the truth of existence and let ourselves rest in that, then there is beauty and hope.
That is what I know is true for me.
I know that when I allow myself to be drawn into a spiral of negative thoughts and emotions I am lost. It takes a long time to get out.
I would rather be present.
I would rather have hope.
I would rather trust.
Is that easy?
No, not for me.
But today it is.
So I will allow it to be because I love this feeling of believing that I can smile and feel the love that is the Divine, that is the Universe, that is Goddess.
And that is what I need to practice.
To be in what is.
Not to fear what might come.
Not wondering when I will fall again, but rest in today.
Or if I am feeling low, to sit with that and be.
Because often the emotions and sensations evolve when we sit in total presence with them.
Thank you for staying with me with my ramblings.
But for me, today, they feel important.
I wish you a lovely day!
