At the risk of continuing to sound heavy, which I realize I may have been lately, I want to share something that I've been rolling around in my head recently. It comes from a book that I'm reading for the second time now. Of course it is just a snippet of an entire collection of gems but this book has helped to support me during this journey of self discovery and I highly recommend you read it or perhaps get one for yourself.
The time to show up fully for life is right now, whatever the circumstances. The decision to be divine attracts the divine. Life is a swirling pool of infinite potential at every single moment, and we ourselves either activate or refuse to activate the mystical fertility of the universe. The only way to achieve an exciting life is to be willing to be excited and exciting. The only way to achieve an excellent life is to be willing to be excellent. The only way to achieve love is to be willing to be more loving. Who and what we decide to be, in each and every moment, is reflected back to us in worldly forms. Situations that just "seem" to happen are not necessarily random at all. With every thought, we ourselves decide whether to welcome God's reality and it's miraculous prospects.
Each and every situation is a lesson in becoming who we are capable of being.
Open my spirit and mind to who and what that is and equip me with the faith, courage and action to make it happen. Help me to remember that our true gift to ourselves and to You lies not in what we have but in who we are.
