Each morning when you wake up resume your journey upon your path of heart. Without resentment, regret, or fear of failure reestablish your intentions, restate your dreams, and reconfirm your commitment to grow, change, and evolve as a human being on a spiritual journey. Allow intuition and innocence to accompany you, the two “I”s that will bring the “I” of your wholeness into alignment. To say “I am” is to declare that one is on a path of knowledge. Let this path of knowledge be refreshed each morning. Give it your fullest attention and then get up and go about your day, letting life itself guide you and show you where to go next. Knowledge will be revealed every step you take upon your intended path. A path of heart will naturally lead you to fulfillment of “I am” and to greater knowledge, if you let it.
Find what you need in your own wholeness. You are enough. Part of you would like to point to the outside world and say that all of your problems are because of it, but there is another part of you that knows this is not true. This other part knows that you contain the whole world within you and that this inner world is the true one. Within lie all your comforts and discomforts, your fears and your calmness, your likes and dislikes, your trust and your security. Gift yourself of this wholeness, the structures of the self that are just waiting to wrap you up and receive you.
Take time today to connect with this world of you, unique and beautiful; like the heavens and the earth perfectly matched, like the moon and the stars perfectly aligned, like the sun and the waters perfectly reflective of who you truly are. Give yourself the gift of you today, and thoroughly enjoy and explore this most unique self. Be open to receive, even as you wish to give, allowing the self to be both giver and receiver.
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.
