I have an outlook on all that has occurred and is still occurring in this world of conditions. I believe in the evolution of our soul as individuals and as a planet. I believe that beyond the worldly conditions that something great is unfolding. I believe that the more we turn inward for our answers, for our strength, for our love that we will receive the guidance we seek. I believe that each of our lives is unfolding perfectly and that none of us are ever lost, even if we pass from this earth without gaining the understanding and joy we so seek and deserve. I believe we are held in the arms of Grace and that love will win. I believe that everything is the unfoldment of the Great Presence that moves all of us to know ourselves deeply and to love each other without limit.
Forgiveness is the key to a more loving life. Forgiveness of ourselves and of others. The parents who brought us here, whether they were the best parents in the world or the worst, were the vehicles that got us here not our destination of what we can be and experience. As we learn to appreciate the wisdom garnered from our past and let go of the emotional tie to our misery, we will move forward into a greater expression of ourselves. If we are suffering right now, we can be healed. As we turn to life, life turns to us.
I believe in myself. I believe in you. I believe in us because we are an individualization of the Divine. We might feel like we’ve been left here alone, but because we’ve been left here to discover ourselves, and when we do, we will realize that we have never been alone. The Life Force, Intelligence that birthed us is the very fiber of our cells, our mind, our soul. We have it all right here.
Let us not faint in discouragement. Let us use our discouragements to find out what it is we need to know more deeply. In every pain there is a treasure. If we think of the pearl hidden in the grit of the sandy shell, we might understand that we are that pearl and sometimes we have to reveal it through the grit of life. It’s here. We are spectacular. We are Intelligence. We are love. We are eternal. We are our own answer and together we are the answer to every question in front of us.
Love and Aloha,
