Someone told me a story today about a professor she had many decades ago in college. The professor was going blind and my friend became her assistant to check papers and run errands for her in the university. We had been discussing what we knew for sure. She said her professor would always say that the only thing every morning she knew to be true (that she could count on daily) was that 2+2=4.
I looked at my friend and she said that she needs certainty in her life. Now in her 60’s she wakes every day with one or two things she can count on, including that 2+2=4.
I went silent. I allowed her to give me a long explanation of why she needed to know things for certain…because there were too many unknowns already in our lives. She needed to have something to control as she entered each day.
She asked me if I needed something of certainty daily. I told her I already had it. I know when I wake daily I am given a gift…one more day. One more blank canvas to serve the world. I didn’t need to add or subtract. I didn’t need to hold on to something for sure…. I like the surprises that appear in the journey. It’s more fun that way.
She smiled. She recognizes that I am airy-fairy. She is of logical sound mind. I am not. I walk on serendipity and synchronicities daily. I know that I know nothing. I don’t need assurance because the moment I wake I have been provided with magic.
What do you need to know for sure on a daily basis? Is there something that you have to know? Do you require lists and control elements to move through your day? Do you need reassurance daily from loved ones?
And, what if you didn’t have to take inventory of what you know? What could you do with all that time you surrender to the unknown and the mysticism of your life? Please share.
People will ask a lot from you. They will ask for help, expecting answers, needing favors, connecting with your light, sometimes sucking the life force from your truth. You can help another. Honor their feelings, but by no means take on their pain, their anger, selfish disorders, mental illnesses, needs and wants. You are only responsible for you!!!
We are here to learn and serve without expectations. The moment someone interferes in your realm of calmness your spirit begins to get uptight. Feel that emotion and go with your gut. If it doesn’t feel like love then you are being guided to not interfere. And this IS the tricky part for most of us. We are talk to help and fix our fellow man.
You have a choice. You ALWAYS have a choice in helping another. “No!” is a complete sentence…it’s how you say it….always say thank you after those words. But, remember the difference between helping and enabling. That thin line is not suppose to be used for jumping rope.
I love you. Honor YOU. Be gentle with you. And, most of all LOVE YOURSELF enough to put you in the number one spot of your life.
I am learning, daily, that in order for me to live and love in my authentic truth I must honor MY feelings first and foremost. The moment I make room for joy, the universe conspires with my desires to bring it forth. It’s amazing.
So, my darling, You got this! Have a blessed day. ~m.a.p.
It is our deepest longing to find answers to why we exist. What is the meaning of it all? Why are we here? And what is the reason to keep searching?
We have questions and we search for answers. Over and over. The answers are rarely found. The more awaken you are the deeper the desire for those answers. They are permitted to come in and accepted as they align with our truth. This is why my answers might not resonate with yours. Questions have little answers through quests. They come through in moments of stillness and silence. Whether they are spiritual questions or not. Our only job is to be present (fully available) for the answers to arrive. Often times we don’t ask the right questions because when the answers arrive they don’t match our expectations. Ask and it is given so be careful what you ask. You might not want it.
Whatever you are wanting make clear declarations. Don’t settle. The universe has a sense of humor. It will utilize our wishy washy emotional state to show us what we might fear or not want. Stay in your truth.
The question you need to ask yourself when you aren’t receiving answers is: what am I resisting? Lately, this has been happening to me. I’m in a total funk of yuckiness to be honest. I’m surfing through. I don’t go back and I won’t go forward. All I have is this moment and at times it is truly hard to handle. But the questions are always there because I know better. I am allowing for the mysteries to unfold. It will come together…
I know consciousness does not think. Consciousness just is. It exists through the mind and body in spite of thoughts. It is the universal connector of all that lives. It is the all that creates us.
These aren’t easy times but they are full of manifesting desires quickly. So make sure you ask for what you really want without confusion. And keep asking the hard questions. Keep searching for purpose. Ride the waves and allow for each breath to be your guide. Your higher self knows it all. It is waiting for you to sit back, shut up and listen!
That’s faith and belief.
Faith is not an ability to foresee the outcome of a situation. It isn’t the holding on and believing the far circumstances of every tomorrow. Faith is the anchor that holds certainty even when it doesn’t look good, even when you have no clue what will happen. It is taking every single step blindly while knowing that the Universe has your best interest.
You aren’t in control so let go and let God! The moment you start to manipulate an outcome, things begin to fall apart. You create scenarios and obstacles that have no business being there.
Live in the magic of transformation. Love the journey of what is and what isn’t. Laugh and be inJOY! That’s where you will find God.
I stared outside the window
witnessing sky art
created by the heavens.
I reach inside,
searching for the warmth
of my soul
sending a “thank you”
to the Universe
for the splendid,
gift of living
In the silence,
through the walls
of love and serenity,
I find Divinity
of a chilling winter morning,
“You are greatly welcome…!”
