Today I will smile and make people feel good about being themselves. ❤
I was deep in meditation last summer at 4am and when I opened my eyes. I saw the Belt of Orion directly in front of me lined up vertically with a Palm Tree.
Ohhhh signs and wonders to behold.
I want to humbly acknowledge something: I am a recovering “fear” junkie. I ran on fear, promoted fear and to be honest I need to own that. Anyone who is running on fear and promoting fear is a coward. I have been a coward. Wow, that is really hard to say. However, it is the truth. An the Truth shall set you free. My life’s purpose is not fear.
F.E.A.R. False Evidence Apears Real.
Or Fuck Everyone or Everything and Run.
And my Favorite. Face Eveyone or Everything and Recovery or Receive.
In the serenity prayer. We ask for serenity first which is “done fighting everyone and everything” which leads to acceptance, which leads to courage to be honest. Which leads to wisdom.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
I struggled for a long time not being able to change the world events when I would see them in advance. And what I discovered was I could help others change themselves and I could change myself. That some how in some way that changed the world in the larger arena. It took me a long time to figure that out. Many sad nights. Until I was able to comprehend what I could change. The courage to change the things I can came after serenity and acceptance. Honest self appraisal.
We dont ask for courage first. Or acceptance or wisdom. We ask for serenity first.
“Serenity comes when we stop trying to change the past.”
When I look off my deck, I hear the birds singing. I see my golden kitty stretched out and sunning her belly. She doesnt seem to worried about anything. I see the flowers blossoming. I see the bees about their morning work. I see the ants about their work. Everything is peaceful, serene and tranquil.
As I enjoy this moment in ponder about creation and life. I will take this moment to breath it in. I am safe, secure. Blessed and Highly Fortunate.
I will give what is given to me this morning, peaceful, serene and tranquility to others around me as I move through the rest of my day.
Have a wonderful day. I already am.
