If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
I like to look upon life as a magical magnificent mirror of truth and awareness. Everything that I, or you, can consciously observe in others, we have the full ability to observe within ourselves. In our daily lives, we often place judgments, fears or even admiration upon the individuals we come across.
Spirit is amazing. (Some call it God, or a “Grand Organized Designer,” or even Lord, Christ, whatever it may be that in your truth exists as that higher source of ultimate wisdom.) So, Spirit gives us so many continual experiences and events on a daily basis that bring us back to this mirror effect. It gives us the continual opportunity to turn within and listen to that which the world is trying to teach us.
Within this observation glass of our awareness, one could perceive this external world with thousands of judgments, for it appears that God is trying to punish us. However, these judgments or “punishments” are precisely the exact situations we needed for our spiritual and soul evolution. It is in these judgments or perceptions that the universe is giving us the chance to take ownership of the traits or characteristics the particular experience can instigate. The difficult experience gives us exactly what we need to completely reframe the issue in life, to see the perfection and really learn to equilibrate the “charge” around the issue. I like to refer to this process as evolving in consciousness and learning to see that life is and will always be absolute perfection.
With this understanding, let me take a moment to turn each of you into the loving inside your heart. Where is that absolute place of perfection that resides inside of you? Where is that space inside your soul where the birds chirp and the butterflies gracefully beautify your surroundings?
I like to refer to that space as perfect present peace, as the grace that sits so restfully inside of my heart, and so easily inside of your own.
For a long time, I perceived my external world to be the fundamental source of my inner turmoil and confusion. However, through natural intuitive and experiential learning, I began to turn within to listen and guide me in comprehending greater meaning to the illusions of my life. Over time, I learned to realize that it was simply my perception that there was dysfunction or turmoil around me.
So, now I turn this back to you. Let yourself take that time to turn within, to listen to your life source energy. For myself, I take at least 5-10 minutes daily to sit peacefully with my inner voice and let it speak its words through my heart. These words are sometimes in the form of free form, stream of consciousness writing and sometimes simply through my everyday consciously evolving soul.
Regardless of your way of attuning yourself to your inner spirit, let it be the way to effectively allow you to embrace your life and release yourself brilliantly into the world. I lived my life for a long time with complete numbness, fear and scarcity however upon finding and comprehending the perfection that exists in every moment, I freed my soul from the constraints of my own inner self. I found the grace of God lurking so beautifully inside my soul, simply waiting for the time to release itself fully into every aspect of my life. And for this transition and strength in listening to that inner guidance, I Thank God I Turned Within.
