“No matter what may have happened yesterday, a new day of fresh possibility has dawned. You’re not the same person today as you were yesterday.” (Daisaku Ikeda)
Every moment is an opportunity to change your story and start again. As we move through our daily lives, we are always evolving even if we don’t realise it at the time. It is true that we are not the same person as we were yesterday. In some ways that can bring a great deal of comfort. It all depends on perspective.
Wherever we are in life is where we are meant to be. It is full of lessons and full of surprises too. The most important thing is to focus on what we have now and what we can do now. There is always something we can do… always.
I can think of many situations over the years that felt impossible to overcome but what has really helped me is to have that deep knowing and faith in something larger than myself. It has helped me to look beyond myself and see new possibilities. In doing so it has created space and allowed changes to bring forth what is needed for my soul evolution.
Sometimes in life we don’t get what we want but I believe we get what we need. Navigating ourselves through changes is not always easy and sometimes its best to go with the flow, letting our experiences reveal to us more of who we are and what we need to know when the time is right. In the meantime, be glad and appreciative of what you have and life will always give you more to be grateful for. Celebrate who you were and who you are becoming.
Love and blessings,
Gratitude is the heart of all Life
Sometimes in order to open a new door, it requires leaving situations behind that no longer serve you. It can mean leaving a whole life behind and although it may be all you have ever known, you know that does not mean that this is all there is. There can be so much more if you believe in yourself and have faith in what you cannot see with the naked eye but see inside every nerve and fibre of your being. It is there waiting in the wings to set the world alight, ready for you to be who you have always been.
I feel so deeply moved right now that I really wanted to share that energy with you. There was a time in my life I never thought I’d make it through alive and here I am living a new life that is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. During that time of transition, clearing the pathway to my own soul has been very hard and took me to places that were uncomfortable and upsetting, yet magical and miraculous all at the same time. I cried and I laughed and then cried and laughed some more, always feeling grateful for my experiences and the people around me who have supported me through it.
While I may never forget, I can see clearly the gifts and the wisdom from the overcoming. It was all meant to be to show me the way to my own heart. I do feel a little sad because I am going through a very big ending right now. However, on the other side of that is a very new beginning which fills me with so much joy too. It gives me hope for a bright future that is already shining on me and I make a choice every day no matter what to see that. I smile as I write this, knowing that everything I need is already here. I am that I am.
Thank you for being here and being you.
In love and light,
That which cannot be seen is called invisible.
That which cannot be heard is called inaudible.
That which cannot be held is called intangible.
These three cannot be defined;
therefore, they are merged as one.
Each of these is subtle for description.
By intuition you can see it,
and feel it.
Then the unseen,
are present as one.
Its rising brings no dawn,
its setting no darkness;
It goes on and on, unnameable,
returning into nothingness.
Approach it and there is no beginning;
Follow it and there is no end.
You cannot know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Discovering how things have always been
brings one into harmony with the Way.
– Tao Te Ching, Verse 14 by Lao Tzu –
This verse by Lao Tzu is taken out from Living the Wisdom of The Tao by Dr Wayne Dyer. It really spoke to me and made me think about trust and trusting in something bigger than us. There is a Higher Intelligence to Life that is always working for us yet we are conditioned from a young age to believe differently – unless we see it we cannot believe it right?
What if that which we are seeking was always there all long waiting for us to open the door of awareness to bring forth that which we always have been?
I am allowing the space of inquiry as I take in the energy of this verse and invite you to do the same if it calls to you.
Have a great week.
Love and light,
