What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for the right time to come?  Are you waiting to be ready?  Are you waiting to know more?  Time is ticking by and it stops for no one.  Every day that passes is another lost opportunity to move forward – to go for what you want – to make a difference in your life and the lives of others.  Sometimes it’s as simple as putting one foot in front of the other or pen to paper.  Sometimes you have to give the ball a gentle nudge to get it rolling down the hill.  You will soon notice how quickly momentum is built by just one simple action – ACT.  Often times fear will cause inaction – fear of rejection, fear of inadequacy, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, or fear of success – yes fear of success.  Set aside the fear and step out into the light.  The time to get started is now.  NOW is all we really have anyways.  NOW is your reality.  The past is an elusive memory and the future is a bright possibility.  All that we are is here and now.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring?  We carry the lessons of yesterday in our back pocket ready for use in the NOW.  So act on your dreams….pursue your goals…NOW is the time.  The time is NOW.

Yin and Yang

Separation.

Inequality.

Two Sides.

Each one thinks they are right and the other is wrong.  No matter what you think of this, it is a balancing act.  It is creating balance out of a highly emotionally charged situation.  It is a yin/yang effect.  In ancient Chinese philosophy, yin and yang represent ideas that encompass the meaning of all reality and its ceaseless state of change.   Change is inevitable and constant.  Yin and Yang offer hope that difficulties will evolve into better conditions.  Yin and Yang also remind us that the best of times change, so preparation will help navigate life’s constantly changing landscape.  Breathe and flow through challenging times.  Strive not to offer any resistance.  Be like a river and flow over the rocks, not against them.  Yin and Yang reminds us that there is a balance between two opposites which create a whole.  Day and Night.  Sun and Moon.  Light and Dark.  Differences actually compliment each other.  We are all unique and made in the image of Divine Spirit and the intense love flows through our veins.  Reach for this love in times of despair.  Reach for this love in times of disagreement.  Reach for this love when emotions run high.  Don’t push it away.  There will always be two sides.  Each person has a perspective that is unique.  Respect for your fellow man and his perspective is called for.  Understand.  Be one.  Pray.  Meditate.  Love like Divine Spirit.  Forgive.  Offer Compassion.  Forge forward together as one.  Do not divide.

The Strength Within

Strength comes from within.  It hides deep inside of every soul.  You must go within to pull it out – draw it out.  In times of crisis and distress, the quiet undercurrent of strength resides in your higher self which is always connected to Divine Spirit.  Remember to breathe and to meditate to reach this place.  There is nothing too great that you cannot overcome as a nation or as a person.  There is strength in numbers.  Band together.  Love each other.  When you are facing a personal battle, you will find your armor waiting for you within your soul.  There is nothing you cannot do, be or have…or over overcome.  The human spirit is very strong and very resilient.  Perspective is key in joining the strength you will find within.  The way you look at your life is the way your life will be.  Choose an optimistic view and in times of grief or turmoil, go within and ask Divine Spirit to reconnect you with your power and your strength.  Don’t every give up.  The longest journey starts with the first step.  Peace. Love. Happiness.
