Why does it seem when you think you have a handle on your life, you have a direction and you feel good about the direction you are going and the choices that you are making, you wake up one day and all holy hell has broken loose in your life?!?
What do choices, stories, truth, love, and life have to do with really changing the course of our own history? These are questions that are asked of me when I have someone new come and begin to work with me about changing their lives.
I know that when you decide it is time to have joy in your everyday world, the possibility of it becoming a reality is really here for you to enjoy. If anyone has the drama for pain and suffering that I have had, please know I’m speaking to you, too. It was that deep pain from being raped, not only my body, but my young mind… by those who I felt should protect me, that could have left me stuck in misery and hopelessness. Yet that is not what happened.
This walk for truth will take you higher, higher than you have ever felt. Yes, the joy will swell in your heart, you will feel like walking on water, or skipping down the sidewalk. Yes, it takes you higher than you have ever been able to feel by pretending that you are a lonely person all alone on this planet called Earth.
I have often contemplated upon why our religious teachings began to take us away from the truth. It did not seem fair to me that the truth was not at our disposal. That the truth of how to love, how to fill our daily needs, how to grow in spirit, how those simple God given rights were very quietly taken away from us.
What is contemplation? To me it is the one tool that can work in any time of your life… in it’s chaos, in it’s peace. When I journal I really keep in mind the questions that I am trying to learn about. It is what has kept me continuing the passion for life. I have such a deep feeling of each and everyone of us, you and I can be free and happy and sit in joy for this life experience.
Have you ever found yourself waking up in the morning and watching someone else’s life and wanting a do-over on your own? Well, what do you think a do-over would entail? I feel that is probably right where most of you would decide all was lost and would give up. Why do you think I would say that?
