spiritualawakening

With the shift in cosmic and planetary consciousness, it is evident that humanity is undergoing a profound inner transformation. As our vibration and consciousness are being elevated to higher levels, we are being continually challenged to let go of our limited old ways of being and are called to consciously participate in the co-creation of a New Earth.

Many of us are embarking on a personal quest towards spiritual awakening, often arising out of a deep, innate desire to connect with the highest aspects of our existence.

The Guesthouse

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

~ Rumi

3 Ways to Discover our Authentic Selves to Live our Best Lives Today

Free-Bird

Living in an ego-driven society, it is often challenging to be authentic. Most of us wear many different masks and play many different roles in order to belong, to fit in, and to be accepted. Many of us are disconnected from our authentic selves and not aware of the truth of our being. We often go through life never discovering our purpose and passion. We may feel lost and incomplete because our lives are not congruent with the deep, underlying essence of who we are. The degree to which we experience love, joy and peace depends on how connected we are to our truth and how authentically we live our lives. When we live our truth, we tap into the power of our higher selves and live each day with a greater sense of peace and fulfillment.

Promise Yourself

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

~ Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Every Day

reflection

Every day a new joy,
A new bliss,
A new blast of astonishment.

Every day more wonder,
And the minutiae of magnificence revealed.

Yes, every day is another gift to see
The heretofore unseen.

And every day, I rush to the mirror to see
Just whose eyes these are?

~ Paul Goldman
