In these dark and uncertain times, there can be great value in imagining a bit of star in each human soul. Not just that it gives some hope for humanity at a time when man’s inhumanity to man seems ever on the increase; but also because it points to an inner brightness that can light the way in dark times ~ Michael Meade
In order to achieve Inner Brightness we need to Self-Love and with that comes Self-Respect. Self Respect fills every facet of our lives. It is the foundation for all of life’s Virtues. We should never compromise our Self-Respect for anything or anyone. Virtues are the essence of our being, our very Spirit. The more we realize the impact that living our lives with virtuous intention has on ourselves and those around us, the more we will open our hearts to love and compassion.
Like this Gondolier guiding his Gondola through the canals, towards the Sunset, so do we journey throughout our lives towards our Inner Brightness guided by our Inner Compass. Trust, Love and Respect your Self.
It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts ~ K.T. Jong
The world around us has changed so dramatically in the past few months and for some, it will never be the same. There is one thing that never changes, though, and that is Truth. We are all given the gift of Truth when Spirit enters our body and from that moment on we are then given the gift of Choice. To be able to make decisions when faced with two or more possibilities. For instance, Good or Evil, Love or Hate.
When Truth comes knocking, no matter how worn or weary, we may have become, or how many of Life’s storms we have weathered, we need to trust ourselves. We need to listen to our inner wisdom and open the door to our hearts and as we open our hearts so will we release the flow of Love that has always been there within us. Perhaps this current state of emergency happening around the world is an opportune moment for us to make yet another Choice.
You may tell the greatest lies and wear a brilliant disguise, but you can’t escape the eyes of the one who sees right through you ~ Tom Robbins
Lying is as easy for some people as breathing. However, we will all lie at some point in our lives. Just be aware of the enormous spiritual damage that occurs to us when we do. Big, Tall, White or Small… they are all lies. The issue is not just the lying itself. We have to uncover the reason that forces us to lie to others and especially to ourselves. This reason could be driven by angst or ego. Another reason could be being someone else’s disappointment. That in itself is reason enough to try and recreate oneself! All this does is create dark and negative energy. If you want to progress spiritually, then you will need to work on your ego, fear, anger or perhaps even regret. Basically anything that is crippling your Spirit.
We should all be able to look into a mirror and be comfortable with the eyes of the one who sees right through us. Like the seemingly perfect reflection of a Sunset on a Lake. The undercurrent has created a distortion in what would have been a perfect V formation of migratory birds. Follow Your Truth. It is a hard journey, but your Energy will be stronger for it.
