Without regret begin anew, with new plans, new ideas, and new guidance implemented from lessons learned. There is no time to stand still in tears of regret but only time to look forward to what is to come. Do so with an open mind, an open heart, and open arms. Life awaits those who greet it with open arms in similar manner. It is your keen awareness to the adventure of life that tickles life itself, making it eager to show you the way forward. Each day is a new opportunity to move onward with awareness, looking always for the right alignment, the right balance, and the right path with heart.
Stand firm in knowing that your place on the Earth is well established, your life meaningful and your spirit’s intent strong. Each day remember that you are here in this life to fulfill a purpose and, whether it is consciously known to you or not, you are fulfilling it each day as you take each step. Keep your spirit always in mind, that part of you that is connected to all things upon the Earth and throughout the Universe, and thus keep the connection alive, minute by minute, day by day. Yes, you are a being who is going to die, but in the meantime make an effort, on all levels of consciousness, to fully live!
Find solace in knowing that your life’s journey is unfolding as you once long ago planned it. From beginning to end, it has pretty much played out as once determined, with opportunities and choices to be made along the way, but even those had been anticipated. Find solace in knowing that all is as it should be, just as you take solace in knowing the unfolding of the seasons each year, how predictable yet full of small differences each season is, and the inevitable conclusion of each one as changes come. So is life, full of changes, and yet a part of you, your spirit, knows that none of them are unpredictable but only valuable lessons on the path of life.
Engage fully in the life you are in, in the phase of life you are experiencing, so that you do not miss anything and so that you fully know every aspect of life in the present moment. Time changes things, and you as well, and to live in the moment is to embrace and appreciate yourself for who you are and who you have become. No moment is any more important than the last and yet each moment is ever more important. Learn to embrace the Now of You. Be grateful for all the gifts you are given, large and small, in each moment.
There is no one path or one right way to live life in the physical world or to achieve spiritual enlightenment. There are as many paths as there are people, for everyone has within themselves the ability and the uniqueness to find a path that works for them, whether it is an established one or a uniquely personal one. Without judgment, let people find and travel the path that is right for them, that will bring them inner peace and wholeness, that will bring them joy and freedom. No path is without its pains. No path is without its challenges, but if it is a path with heart, a path that resonates deeply with the individual, it is a path well worth traversing. A path with heart is just that, a path full of heart no matter where it winds.
