Soulbyte for Tuesday April 16, 2019

Take your mind off yourself for a moment and look around. What are you being shown today that will lead to knowledge and enlightenment? What are you being shown about yourself that will enhance your life experience if only you would notice and take advantage of it? Are you only seeing the negatives and missing all the positive signs you are constantly being gifted? Take your attention off your usual thoughts about yourself and look outward for a moment. Extend that moment to an hour, an hour freed of your usual self-condemnations. What do you begin to notice? When negative thoughts arise, refuse them. Look only outside of yourself at something beautiful, calm, and peaceful for a change and be freed of yourself for hours at a time. What do you experience inside yourself when you are freed of yourself? Something beautiful, calm, and peaceful too? You can change by changing your inner attitudes about yourself, but it’s up to you to prove it, one hour at a time.

A warrior maintains balance in all ways, at all times, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, no matter the circumstances. To stay in balance is to constantly walk the razor’s edge, staying in the tension of each moment, neither pulled one way nor the other, neither too much nor too little but finding life’s thrills in each moment of holding to that razor’s edge. A warrior knows that to step off the razor’s edge thwarts the journey, slows progress. A warrior’s intent is to withstand all bombardments from all levels of life, conscious and unconscious, with sharp precision. A warrior holds to the razor’s edge knowing there is no greater purpose in life than the intent to maintain balance. A warrior does this, sharp as a razor, without judgment, maintaining a path with heart, a mind filled with compassion, and loving kindness for all, including the self who may occasionally slip. But a warrior always remembers the intent of the path with heart and immediately returns to the razor’s edge, for a warrior knows that it is there that a warrior is most alert, aware, and alive.

Soulbyte for Thursday April 11, 2019

There’s no need to fight. Why find fault with another? It’s really only something inside yourself that keeps you dissatisfied and angry. Go inward. Sit quietly and face the truth within yourself. It’s really the only way to resolve conflict. Face yourself. Know yourself. And with compassion and kindness find a resolution that works for you. You may not have everything you want. You may not be able to have what you desire, but on the road to resolution some things have to be left behind; something has to be sacrificed. There’s always another rainbow, another light, another love, another life. You can change if you give yourself the opportunity. Rather than engage in self-pity, engage in self-confidence and self-motivation. Rather than fight, give yourself a fighting chance, but do it honestly and with integrity. You matter that much.

A true warrior’s path is always a path of heart. A warrior tracks the signs and synchronicities, the energy, the telltale leavings of others that reveal what is needed to be known and done. A warrior is always on the alert, aware that everything is in constant motion. A warrior knows that at a moment’s notice a shift might need to be made, and so a warrior is always prepared. Remember that you have already come so far along your own path of heart, that you have done the good work of a warrior. To continue, call upon your warrior self. When you are uncertain, your warrior self knows how to track and navigate, how to take the next step boldly and with certainty, and how to move on when it is time, without attachment, eager for what is to come. Be guided by your inner warrior during times of stress and strife, as well as during times of lull and relaxation. Always be guided by this inner warrior, who is strong and determined but also loving and kind and compassionate. Let your warrior’s heart show you the way along your own path of heart. Your heart really does know the way.

Let your inner light guide you to know yourself so that it may properly and safely guide you in your outer life as well. For if the saying “as within so without” is to be true and truly useful, what lies within must be fully known and correctly understood if what is without is to be taken in, given its correct meaning, and properly assimilated. Without blame and shame, and with the intent of healing, look within in the most objective and impersonal ways, with an attitude that is positive rather than negative so that your inner world may resolve of all its dilemmas and tricky ways, so that the light you shine within may root out that which you have kept hidden from yourself for some old reason, and so that you may fill with the light of positivity and joy. Find your light, find yourself, experience your joy and bring it forth. First fix yourself so that the truth within may be discovered. Only then will your interpretation of what is happening without be correct. There is a lot more going on than you realize. It’s all about transformation, growth, and evolution. Understand what that means on a personal level and become part of the positive side of the changing times you live in. As within, so without, indeed!
