“Whatever our path, whatever the color or grain of our days, whatever riddles we must solve to stay alive, the secret of life somehow always has to do with the awakening and freeing of what has been asleep.”
It is time to WAKE UP! I am not saying to just wake up your body to function on a daily basis and get by. I say wake up your inner spirit so instead of crawling you can fly, soar in fact! Have you ever looked up in the sky and see the birds effortlessly make their way through the sky, have you seen how they glide, have you seen how they are totally in line with their evolution that has allowed them to survive throughout the years. This is the freedom that we all seek, a freedom that does not seek permission, a freedom that does not demand of us to be something that we are not. This is the gift of life, that you step on your path and begin to soar. If you are having a challenging time allowing yourself this beautiful freedom, then seek out the people in your life who have already taken the risk and made the leap into the beauty that is theirs. Find examples in others who have gone through the struggles and come out the end with wisdom to share. Ask for the assistance from the positive ones around you to bring your energy levels up to where you are able to bask in this sought after secret of life.
My goodness how I stand in gratitude for my teachers, I stand in appreciation for my mentors and I am grateful to those who have allowed me the forgiveness for past wrongs to move forward. With these examples, I too seek to be of service in the same way to give back what I have received. We all need encouragement to free ourselves of what has been asleep. While we may already be awake and soaring in one respect, there are other areas that we may need a little push and need to be released. As quoted by the author B.J . Gallagher, it does not matter how you think or feel, you can actually change your thoughts and attitudes by taking positive ACTION and that is the secret behind the Power of Positive Doing. It is not enough to stay in your mind with positive thinking, it is the action that is key to making the shift possible. As Marcel Proust has coined in gratitude “Let us be grateful for the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” We all need these kind of people in our lives, those who know how to openly communicate, those who know when the soul needs forgiveness and those who make us want to be better people by example through how they deal with their personal failures and successes. So make the choice surround yourself with positive people and start to become one of those people. You can begin by consciously using words that are impeccable so that you can raise your energetic vibration for you and others rather than bring it down. This could be the first step to awaken the transformation for your inner spirit to take flight and soar, and this is the company you want to keep for there is a reason why birds of feather flock together! Wake up and join the freedom!
