“Well done is better than well said.” -Benjamin Franklin


I was saddened today to learn of the passing of one of my favorite actors, Ryan O’Neal. Through the years as his name would pop up in news stories, I was taken right back to the moment sitting in a movie theater with my first love watching Love Story. Life is full of firsts and they are powerful. The first time we experience love, whether it's a romantic connection or an unconditional bond with a family member or friend, is an exquisite initiation into the realm of the heart. Love is the language of the soul, reminding us that we are not separate but interconnected beings. In every act of love, we glimpse the divine, for love is the greatest force in the universe, guiding us towards unity and spiritual growth. However, firsts are not always joyous. Sometimes, they bring sorrow and loss. The first experience of loss, be it the death of a loved one or animal, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a dream, can be incredibly painful. However, these moments also hold tremendous spiritual potential. They teach us the impermanence of life and the importance of embracing the present moment. Through grief, we learn empathy, compassion, and the resilience of the human spirit, drawing us closer to our spiritual essence.


Dear Angels, our firsts in life are not merely mundane milestones; they hold the potential to be transformative spiritual experiences. By approaching each first with mindfulness, gratitude, and a sense of wonder, we can unlock the deeper meaning and purpose behind them. Whether it's the first breath, word, love, loss, or awakening, these sacred moments help us connect with our divine essence and remind us that life is a miraculous journey of growth and self-realization.


Dear Ones, you came into this world to learn, which involves experiencing things for the first time. The newness of the experience feels powerful because you are opening to remembering who you truly are. Your firsts are awakenings and pursuing those feelings will lead to further enlightenment. This may come through an experience, meditation, teachings of a mentor, or moments of deep reflection. Awakening ignites a thirst for knowledge, self-discovery, and the pursuit of truth, propelling you towards a more meaningful and purposeful life. We encourage you to be curious, ask questions, step out of your comfort zone and do something you have never done before. Have those firsts in life wherever you are in your life journey. What was your last first? If you cannot recall, maybe it is time for a new one.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to be open to having more first experiences!
