What I know about life and living it, probably isn’t much more than You. I’ve struggled along with the rest of us even though so many people in my small world look to me for the example, "the way" so to speak, to do it painlessly. In truth, the only way I know to do it painlessly, is to make it simple, by living life from the heart. Through our hearts we are always connected to what some refer to as our inner voice or our inner knowing. Others refer to this as being connected to our higher self, spirit, soul or our eternal selves. Whatever name you choose to use for this connection, many will agree that it’s the part of ourselves from which love and wisdom flows. If we live our lives by allowing this wisdom to guide us, moment by moment, then we no longer require “pain” to get our attention in order to learn.
And if we live our lives connected to our hearts and we make conscious choices, moment by moment, from this place of awareness, imagine what our world would feel and look like!! For me, I find that the more I am able to BE in my heart, the more healthy, energized, empowered and joyous I am. And if one choice doesn’t necessarily turn out the way I anticipated or would have liked, I know that I am empowered to learn from that experience and that next time, I can always make a different choice.
Isn’t it perfect that so many refer to the “present” moment as a “gift”? And doesn’t it make sense that if that’s what we believe, then each moment is a wonderful opportunity to BE alive. Until next time, I wish for you easy lessons and joy-filled moments every day.
With blessings of gratitude and peace,
