The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.”
He posed the question, "Are you always looking for people to pay you back?" As I straightened up in my seat, I couldn't help but think of the wisdom in this question. His message continued, "Do you think people owe you? Do you feel that you are justified to be unhappy and upset because of something that happened 20+ years ago. Are you still making the people who are currently in your life pay for these past events?"
Wowzers...his words hit my heart. As I continue to grow and learn, and identify myself as a student of the Earth, it is my intention to live from a space of 'awareness' and 'awakeness.' This becomes a daily intention. This intention allows me to 'lean' into the events of life. Remember my friends, we are in this together. We are ALL unearthing our patterns, our habits, our stories, our desires.
One of the jewels of this journey is to use the filter of your imagination to take in what resonates and leave the rest. The more aware we become, the more opportunities we have to shift and grow. Awareness offers the ability to liberate. Compassion towards self and others offers healing. Self discovery leads to growth. Our imagination helps us to tap into the unlimited potential of the infinite. Peace brings us back to the power of surrender.
Just as the Hafez quote so beautifully illuminates, "Even after all this time, the sun never says to the Earth, you owe me." How would your life change if you lived from this perspective?
