Remember, that of all the elements that comprise a human being, the most important, the most essential, the one that will sustain, transcend, overcome and vanquish obstacles is Spirit ~ Buddy Ebsen
Some see life’s obstacles as barriers. Negative energies put there purposely, by the Great Unknown, to stunt our mind, body and spirit’s growth. Perhaps we should rather see them as life’s rest stops. A time and place where we can refuel, build positive energy and think things through rationally. A mindful way of approaching solutions.
Even the Bayou Teche in flood is seemingly gentle, overflowing barriers, as it slowly snakes it’s way towards the Gulf of Mexico.
Everyone has a purpose in life and a unique talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals ~Kallam Anji Reddy
We all wonder about our purpose in life and what it is we could be doing to make a difference. There is something worthy within all of us. Something we can offer to others with very little if any sacrifice. Kindness, compassion, perhaps a shoulder to lean on. A good sense of humor to lighten someone’s day.
And, even Jolie, a scruffy and muddied Guard Mule has purpose. Imaginary Unicorn grazing in a field of dreams keeping a mindful eye on the cattle.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us ~ Albert Schweitzer
It doesn’t happen very often, if ever, that someone comes along and rekindles that
spark of life energy within us. Especially when we have lived a full life and get to
a point where we feel that perhaps we have experienced all that we deserve in this
illusion called ‘Life’. So, when that someone appears, seemingly out of nowhere,
and shakes things up a bit. Embrace and Engage.
The authentic true self that we recognize when we look at ourselves in a mirror. Those first moments as a young child when we see our reflection and recognize the person staring out at us. The moment when we look into those eyes, into that conscience, and realize that no matter how many stories become fabricated fragments of ourselves over time.. eventually our authentic truth will balance everything out.
Always be true to yourself because one day you might come face to face with your conscience ~ Grady
