I can hear your cries from miles away. The pain and the world of hurt that you have to live with. My heart goes out to you and my soul yearns to be right beside you. Let our spirits be the light that you need in this seemingly endless tunnel. Draw from the power of humanity. For love always wins, always. We were never meant to walk this Earth alone. That is simply not how we are built to function. Let us unite and ignite your spirit, to provide sustenance to your fire within. Your tender soul still burns, but ever so gently.
Just as our external environment mirrors our mental environment, our physical posture mirrors our internal bodily functions. Lift your head and puff your chest. Take a few deep breaths and feel the oxygen course through your veins. Let your heart be free and open because you are a vessel of love and you deserve to be loved. Let the love flood through and guide you to find the strength within to have faith and to trust again. Trust that the universe is supporting you every step of the way. We are handed life situations and problems that only we have the answers to. This pain is temporary and you have what it takes within you to breakthrough. You’ve already done so well. As you sit with the pain, let it tell you all its stories and you will come to understand its purpose. And once that’s done, you would have evolved into a stronger and kinder human being – A better version of yourself.
You need only look at what is right in front of you. Let the next step lead you to the next. Have you heard of the term “This too shall pass”? It reminds us of the transient nature of life. We are the observer and conductors of these passing events. Time is our ally. The more we try to cling onto an emotion, the more we allow external factors to determine our state of mind. Cling on to the negativity in your life and you will find yourself clouded with negative thought patterns that translate to negative behaviours. You have just entered a negative loop. The reverse is also true. Cling on to happiness, and when it is taken away, you feel disorientated and lost. This is the result of having our internal rhythm be determined by things we cannot control. But it only takes a moment of awareness of your present to break the loop. Notice your feelings, emotions, state of mind, physical state and immediate environment. What is one thing that you can do differently? It could be as simple as sitting upright or taking a warm shower. Give yourself a minute to feel the change and find the next thing and the next and the next.
It is less about achieving something but more about creating the mindset for a more sustainable level of peace within. Your accomplishments are not a measure of your worthiness in this world and there is absolutely nothing you need to prove. You are worthy without conditions. You have been handed the greatest gift in the world the moment you were born. And that is life itself with a golden pin attached, engraved with the word: Choice. I promise you, there is so much good that you have yet to experience and reconnect with. You and I both have the same power of choice in this life so let’s make it a good one. Simply because you deserve it.
