The Tapestry of Life.

Sitting in Starbucks this morning I observed an amazing cross-section of humanity gathered under one roof.

Represented I saw every age and body size. The Christian pastor was sharing with his “flock”.

A young “handicapped” woman was there and several others who would be labeled part of the “gay” community.

Here in Grass Valley, in a 2500 square foot space sits the tapestry of the human experience.

What is important to know and understand is that each one deserves to be embraced with the energy of love, forgiveness and gratitude for who they are.

This Earthly Trip Around The Sun

 

 

Have kindness for your fellow travelers on this earthy trip around the sun.

Be grateful for all the things you encounter, be they labeled happy or sad, good or bad. They all can be teaching moments if you remain awake and grateful.

See each new day as an opportunity to love. Love what you do, love who you are, and love those fellow travelers you encounter.

Cherish these moments for they are the true essence of life.

Finding Calm . . .

To comprehend the calm you must first experience the hurricane.

To comprehend the power of the silence you must first hear the chaos.

To embody love you must first experience the vision of fear.

For it is through these contrasts that will emerge the teaching. And it is for this reason that you have been given the gifts of contrasting experiences.

Problems . . .

Problems . . .

The saying goes . . . “For every problem there is a solution.”  What if the situation was not labeled a problem?  Would there still be need of a solution?

Or would the situation in question simply be the normal flow of events in that particular moment . . . and by labeling it a problem you immediately bring the energy level down and the stress level up.

Fascinating concept isn’t it.

Finding Peace . . .

You cannot buy peace for it cannot be held in your hand . . . taken to the store clerk and purchased with money. That which you hold in your hand is fleeting . . . time always outlasts it . . . time always wins.

So we remind you to experience peace in each moment . . . which is given to you as a gift. The peace you experience . . . if you allow yourself to see it . . . is your gift. Enjoy.

Take Your Eyes Off Yourself . . .

Take your eyes off yourself and place your focus on the horizon. It is of no value to count what you perceive you have or do not have . . . take your eyes off yourself. You must see beyond that which you believe you know . . . for you know very little of what is truly there waiting for you. The counting only makes you sad, worried and small. However, keep counting if this is how you wish to feel.

You have heard the words “Love life and it will love you back” . . . and we simply say . . . yes it will.
