“I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.” ~~ Earl of Chesterfield
When I was young
I had all the time – plus some
I willed it away
Oh to be 18 and then it was 21.
How silly to place a dream on hold
And look back on
what could have been
what might have been
Had I just been more bold.
Dear Angels, I have learned a lot in this lifetime and one of those lessons has to do with time and how precious our moments are. Like Harry Chapin’s song “Cats In The Cradle” we sometimes do not see how we are missing out on so many blessings in life when we get caught up in putting out fires. I have had a lot of opportunity to reflect as I drive across the country. When I am with others, I want to make the most of every moment. That is really why we are here having the experiences we are having. We are figuring out what is real. A Course In Miracles teaches us that “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Therein lies the peace of God.” When we stay in the present moment, we enter the sacred state of realization that this is the only reality. The material things become just things. What is inside becomes the only truth that exists.
Dear Ones, the deeper inside you travel the more you will get familiar with the path that leads to Oneness. Many take detours along the way, distracted by shiny objects and pretty scenery. In the moment when you come back to your true self, it is important to keep moving forward. Any part of the illusion that you are holding onto has to be released or it will keep you tethered to that which is unreal. Dear Ones, you are exactly where you are supposed to be in any given moment. Release the thought that you missed out on something or that you need to change the past to move forward. Embrace every experience with loving arms. Criticizing and judging yourself will only slow the process of waking up to your true self, which is divine. If someone is not living up to your expectations, examine your expectations. Realize that they are an aspect of you. What are you asking from yourself and not receiving? If there is discontent, Dear Ones, always return to your heart and ask what love would have you do, think, feel, say. Release the bonds of limitations and open to the joy of love. Stay on that pebbled path that is before you until you see the tree of enlightenment welcoming you to sit and rest. In your rest time, become one with the tree. Allow your roots to go deep into your earth core. The heart of your earth mother will help you understand the truth. Then, Dear Ones, your next steps will be on solid ground as you move with ease and grace in each new moment, experiencing the peace that passes all understanding. Stay the course.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to move forward with confidence in myself and my inner guidance.
