“Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.”
I love this quote. When I first came across this it had such a huge impact on me and it reminded me of why we are all here and how we all have a mission on this planet whether it is in our jobs, our families and in anything else we are meant for or destined for in our lifetime across all lifetimes (if you believe in past lives). Yesterday saw another New Moon and the start of a new cycle. I am learning to love this part of nature’s natural cycle because it allows us such an opportunity to tap into the abundance of the Universe and what we truly desire. I have made my new moon wishes for this month and I decided to dream very big. Sometimes when we put out our desires to the Universe they don’t always make sense or they may seem so impossible to achieve that it would be so easy to shy away from them but the heart is such a powerful force. It is the embodiment of love and when we come from that place we can surely have faith in ourselves and the bigger picture no matter how impossible something may seem.
I know a lot of people comment on some of my successes and how much fun I look like I am having on social media when I post some of my positive posts but in the background where I don’t share the majority of my life, there is so much more that goes into achieving some of things I do and if I didn’t have any faith I wouldn’t do any of it. Most of the things I have done, I have had no idea how it was going to come into fruition. I decided in my mind that I would manifest them and set out firstly within my spiritual practice to focus on my vision and my mission. From there, I made a commitment to stay true to my visions no matter what. Life is too short to not try things and go for what you love. The worst that can come from it is our perceived failures if something doesn’t seem to work out but there is wisdom in every experience and nothing is ever a waste.
I decided I wanted to live my life without regrets and give things a try even if it scares me (especially if this happens). When you are faced with your mortality at a young age like I was, then it completely changes your perspective and outlook on life. It makes you realise that we don’t have an infinite amount of time here on Earth. In fact we don’t know how long we are here for and if we truly knew that then the question to ask is… ‘how would you live your life differently?’ That’s why the above quote had such an impact on me. As part of the collective, we each have a part to play and gifts to give. We can make lots of plausible excuses such as money and time to not do something but I believe that there is never a right time to do anything and you have to just do it.
Go for gold because your life is waiting for your beautiful gifts.
Happy New Moon,
