“Your own self-realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
~ Sri Ramana Maharshi
Firstly, Happy Spring 2013! Theme of the month behind us and the month ahead… change. For me, this past transition time from our winter into spring has been a beautiful, amazing, and at times, intense flow of some pretty big waves to surf. My highest intention is to be my most real, highest, and most authentic Self, period. These past few weeks have challenged me on many levels, all for good and all for the purpose of self-actualization. Being in the world and not of it, as a Spiritual being having a human experience is the aim here. Yowza, if we are truly honest, living from this orientation is easier said than done at times.
As I reflect upon my shifts in perspective during this time of a great personal paradigm shifting, I can honestly share that there have been moments of ease and grace, deeper self-love and a more profound compassion for self. Has each moment been easy, no, not 100% easy at all. My spiritual evolution experiences as of late, though I know deep in my soul what is necessary, has been what I would call a “mixed bag”. The greatness about this time of great change and “waking up” to my true self on a deeper level, is that the layers that no longer serve my highest Self and highest expression of God’s glory, are sloughing off, revealing the shiny diamond-like Self that is meant to be the beacon of light as destiny has written. And, as well all have experienced at some point of our lives here, with change and growth, the call to accept, to let go and to allow is part of the package deal. Just like a cut or physical wound, the process of healing requires immense patience to leave that scab alone and allow nature to heal the wound, even if it itches or nags for our attention!
The fact that there is a fine balance, of the notion of “fate” and the notion of “free will”, like two horses we must balance our two legs on as we ride into the sunset… the power lies in the act of discernment, self-trust and faith. Faith that all is “working out” perfectly, even when the outer appears different that how we imagined or fantasized or “wanted” it all to be… All is well and all will be well. This I know for sure and this fact gives me great comfort. An exhale with a long ahhhhh sound.
I realize that this sharing may be a bit vague, lacking “story” or details, however, “non sono importanti”. What is important is this. The beauty and realization of healthy evolution, deep satisfaction, and emotional contentment in life is inevitable when the seeds that we have planted are regularly nurtured, nourished, and cared for with our love. Honoring the Self, loving the Self and the practice of positive thoughts sustain the connection to the Self to the Divine are all acts and attitudes that bring causeless joy in each moment. My intent of sharing my thoughts/feelings in this blog is simply to inspire hope in you and our world, defined here as positive expectation, not the usual definition that has a component of lack or fear. I choose to inspire hope, despite the many challenges that we face in our journey towards wholeness and living as the God-like being that we truly are. The fact that through our personal evolution we may feel vulnerable, frightened or raw- at the end of the day, we are all moving towards the Light. Each day a little bit closer to discover our own Bright Inner Light and towards The Light. Wishing you much serenity, peace and bliss.
