Embrace the self in all that you are. Without judgment or faultfinding simply love the self for the journey you have taken, the journey you are now on, and the journey yet to come. In such simple embracing of the self that is, acceptance of and release of all that you were, are, and will be allows for growth that is without regret.
To live without regret is a great accomplishment. To move forward in life freed of your past opens you more fully to the present and the future. Do not run from your past, but reckon with it, kindly and with compassion for the self, as you would the past of another. See the self as you would a dear friend and without judgment offer love to the self as you would another. Before you move on check that you have not left any scraps of discontent behind you. Move on only when there are no ties that bind. Only then will you be freed to experience the self that is and the self that is to be.
Be observant. Notice the world around you. Notice the people you come into contact with. What is it about them that you admire? What is it about them that disturbs you? Ask yourself to take in these observations as truths of the self, both that which you admire and that which disturbs. Discover why and how these qualities pertain to you. Send love and compassion to the people you come into contact with, thanking them for being your mirror. Send them good energy as they continue their own journey and you yours, seeking to know the self and to be fully present and aware beings. This is what life offers you, the give and take of energy, the ability to observe, take in, accept and utilize all the gifts you are given. Everyone you meet is a gift in disguise, yours to discover.
Disruptions naturally occur. No matter how powerful or stable one is, nature cannot be held back. One may try to inhibit or overpower the forces of nature, but it is one’s challenge to realize that one has no control, that nature will, in the end, have its way. So is it with spirit, for spirit will drive one to seek out that which is most naturally important for one to encounter in life. Spirit will find its way to live. These two forces, nature and spirit, align to take one on the journey through life. Study them. Know them. Abide by their directives and you will live a life of meaning and adventure. In alignment of your own nature and your own spirit you will find your way prepared and ready to receive you. Let these two parts of the self guide you.
Let rising tides of energy settle. Let the energy of the day unfold in gentle lapping waves as you stay in the flow of your life with awareness of where you put your feet, what your thoughts are, and how you treat your body. Allow spirit to be present, the awareness of that “something else,” that “other” self who walks always beside you, who resides inside you, your traveling companion through life. Be at one with each other, partners on an adventure. Be open to the experiences of this day with awareness. And with awareness make decisions that are beneficial to the whole self. Such decisions may not be what you ordinarily expect. Be open.
The gathering now begins, the gathering of energy that will carry you forward, separately and collectively. All beings must become aware of this time of shift if they are to consciously partake in the energy of true change. Decisions must be made that are truly beneficial for all, without greed or avarice, thoughtful of all life upon the planet, and even beyond the planet. In the energy of all life, must consciousness that all beings are equal awaken now and be nurtured, trusted, and taken to new and higher levels of attention and purpose.
All beings consist of energy. If the world is to see good once again, that energy must be nurtured and brought forth as that which binds you one to one, and be taken seriously by all rather than a few. In understanding that all beings are energy, an understanding of the similarities and resonance of one to one will be rediscovered and made available for growth and healing. In this manner you will no longer be strangers to each other, but resonant beings on a resonant mission. Seek self knowledge of the energy and you will do your part. Remain open to experiences and trust what you learn.
