Sometimes our lives feel full of doubt fear and constraint. Like a caged hamster on a wheel, going nowhere fast. Stuck!
Spirit wants us to move through this pain and constraint. We need to ground deeply into Mother Earth to heal our relationship with her. We can intend to feel heart- opening compassion for ourselves and others so that we can grow and learn. We can learn to shake off the constraint and pain !!!! Just after I posted this, I met a man and his dog on the trail. I was moved to pet his sweet dog face, and he immediately shook the water off his fur!!
Pinocchio is here to remind us we are on earth to learn the difference between lies and truth. What old beliefs am I still harbouring and what truths am I afraid to look at ? By being grounded in the present and telling our true stories, we are becoming more fully our authentic selves.
I heard the words ” civil engineer” in my healing meditation. … Spirit would like us to engineer our lives so that we live with integrity and an intention of being CIVIL to each other.
In the words of Pema Chodron ‘War begins when we harden our hearts, and we harden them easily.” We first are OPENING our hearts to ourselves, shaking off fear and doubt and constraint. Then we are free. We can intend to be part of a community, helping others to do the same.
Thanks to a recent reading I am feeling more peaceful, and ready to move forward with my whole heart. Thank you, Lucia. TaraLee Houston
Let us start with ourselves, just as we are, here and now. Pema Chodron
