This week I had an experience of hosting a meditation at our Center. It was amazing. Debra van de Taeye on of our Practitioners guided us deep within. My heart saddened a bit afterwards when I took in the idea that only five people were there. I was confused. People said they wanted healing. People ask for meditation. Where were they?
Today, I stop myself and I reconsider my thoughts of that evening. I see that I was looking in the wrong place. I was putting my faith in numbers and the outside. I was deciding success was based upon who showed up. This is a perfect example of how our ego can trap us. Yes, of course, we want numbers. We want to reach as many people as possible; however, why do we really do what we do. Looking to the outside for our success will only create longing for more and more approval. Our answers and strength must come from within.
What I know is that I do what I do because that Spirit is expressing itself through me. I choose to give my energy and light to the world because that is what I do. I am not responsible for how it is received. I have no idea what is occurring behind what I see in front of my eyes. I know that every time I put my energy out into the atmosphere that it is received everywhere, seen and unseen, near and far.
And so, I continue to do what I am called to do. I do not decrease, but I increase. God/Source is always expanding.
Whatever we are each doing in our lives, I invite us to know that it is enough if it is coming from our true Heart Center. Some people will ask me, “Why am I here?” I say it is enough that you are right here being who you are. It is perfect.
I challenge myself not to look to the outside for my approval or success. I look deep within to the roots of my being and know that there I am always a success. I look for more ways to increase my experience of giving.
Love and Aloha,
