If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
If today were to become my very last day to walk this Earth – if, in the next moment, I took my very last breath – I would want to instill into you a sense of peace and an urgency to love.
Imagine what it would feel like to wrap yourself in a warm blanket of sparkling gold light. As the light engulfs you, you become lighter. You feel so warm, safe and free as you spin around and dance effortlessly. The gold light is pure and radiant love. It becomes you, and you become it. Intertwined, you are one of the same, shining bright.
That priceless feeling of being one with love and light is your soul’s natural way of being. We often lose our way, become heavy with stress and pain and fear, and forget that we have an incredible energy source at our fingertips at all times. A space to go to clear the density and liberate ourselves, again.
You are magnificent. And perfect just as you are in this very moment. If you are carrying pain, if you are unhappy or if someone has done or said something that hurt you, know that it was not about you at all. We view the world through our own narrow perceptions. Abuse has nothing to do with the person receiving it, and all to do with the abuser. Reach deep inside, take the hand of that little child buried beneath your fear and pain, and kiss it ever so gently. Love that child up. That child is just as real as you are, reading this now.
Know that happiness is a choice you make with every breath you take. Your life is all your own, and you have the opportunity to choose what you welcome and allow in. This includes your thoughts, feelings and emotions. No one is responsible for your attitude but you. Own it, honor yourself and choose to be well.
Love with all you have. Love yourself, your life and the people in it. Show compassion and kindness for Earth’s creatures and Mother Nature. We are all one of the same. Let passion fuel your fire and live, fully, in every moment. Dream so big that you have no choice but to soar, and play like you did as a child. Invite others to play, too.
Give of yourself, and soon you’ll realize that you don’t need very much at all to be happy and fulfilled. Attaining material wealth and status is simply an attempt to fill a great void. Gratitude, love and kindness fill that emptiness in a way that attaining things never will.
Treat yourself as you would your very best friend. Then, extend your hand to others and dance. Dance in the sparkling light of divinity that you wear so well. You are beautiful. You are always loved. Your soul is eternal, though you will one day leave this body behind. Love and appreciate all of what makes you you while you are here.
