My spiritual journey started as a very young girl. I've been searching for the truth for almost 30 years, and I've been blessed with being surrounded by incredible teachers, the best parents in the world, and a love of learning. That's the key to a fulfilled (Self-filled) life. You've got to want the truth, to find the truth. What is this truth that I am speaking of? The fact that your happiness lies in the palm of your hands (or, more specifically, in your heart center).
Some of you may be thinking that I am living in a fantasy world that only contains happiness and bliss. No...Well, not exactly. I live in the world the same as any other human being. Do I have troubles and trials to get through? You bet ya! I'm currently recovering from a three-level cervical spine fusion that was the brainchild of an accident I was in 8 years ago ('hit by an '87 Buick in NYC).
My point is this: I didn't start this blog to infer that your life can be all roses; I started it to share with you that you don't have to get rid of the thorns to enjoy the rose! We're human; we're going to have pain and suffering and anger and fear, etc. But you can't let it rule your life. There's so much grace to be had, if we can just open up our hearts and believe. Believe in the power of our 'Self'--the great knower--the power that resides in your heart.
So, here I am, going on my eighth week of recovery with a LONG road of rehabilitation ahead of me. I have a choice. I can choose to stay connected to the GRACE and LOVE that is innately available to me in my heart, or I can crumble (or as my father says, I can 'fold'). If I did that, I wouldn't enjoy the fruits of my life that are still abundant.
I leave you with this thought/visual:
We all have a treasure chest inside our hearts.
Inside this chest is the key to life--
A light that shines eternal.
In some, it is open for all to see.
In others, it's locked and hidden away...
But, everyone has it.
Find yours, and let it shine.
Love and Blessings to all.
