AIM-LESS MOVEMENT

I strive daily to be led by God and do whatever I am told to do.

This particular day I had a twelve noon appointment but was dressed and ready to go very early. Yet I did what I was led to do. I got into my car and began driving. Not knowing exactly where I was supposed to go, I just drove. I then asked the question, where is it You want me to go?

I found myself, literally driving down the street going in the direction of our County’s Humane Society. I was so tickled because I was not thinking about adopting a pet. I knew I am gone too much from home and that it would not be a good match for me to get a pet and then never be home to lovingly provide for it. Yet off to the Animal Shelter I went. I was still laughing as I parked my car in a stall. Thinking to myself, God is truly funny and has a great sense of humor.

When I got inside, it was like I was being escorted by powers beyond my control. First I went to the puppy section. I was standing there amazed at the little fuzzy creatures, they were all so precious. The caretaker came and told me I could open any of the cages and hold the puppy. Instead what I did was to go to each cage and talk with the puppy. Told them I loved them and how beautiful they were.

Next off to the kittens and cats I went. They were all so splendidly colored. Some were purring and brushing their coats against the sides of the cages, others just looked as I passed them by. I felt a sense of connection to these animals and enjoyed my visit with them. I talked and smiled with each one.

Then I ended with the big dogs. Some were so noisy barking and acting out. I told them how incredible they were. Walked past and shared some love with each of them. I saw the loneliness in the eyes of some, as if to say I do not deserve an owner. I thought to myself how closely related dogs and humans are. I thought about the many people I encounter who have this same look in their eyes. I noticed the bark of those that just want to be heard and thought again about the similarities with people is striking.

VALUING THE JOURNEY

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Recently I had a most awesome and amazing opportunity to truly value the delays along my journey in life. I was flying standby into Los Angeles from Atlanta, on what happened to be the busiest day at Hartsfields Jackson Airport.

On the first flight out which is the preferred flight when traveling standby, the gate attendants did not call one single person that was on the standby list. We were instructed to go to the Customer Service counter and list ourselves on the next flight or a future flight. In summary I spent more than twelve hours on a wonderful Saturday at the Atlanta airport.

At the Customer Service counter I was asked if I just wanted to wait until the next day because all the flights were oversold for that day and it looked doubtful that I would be able to get on any of the remaining flights. I laughed and replied, “No, because my son dropped me off and he is taking his children camping for the weekend fifty miles away. He has the only other set of house keys and I did not bring my set. I have no way of getting back into my house!”  I smiled the entire time during this conversation. And to think my luggage was already en route. The agent was mystified that I was so undisturbed by the news.

I met so many wonderful and incredible individuals while spending the day at the airport. I fully participated in the whole airport scenario.  The thirteen hours were filled with delightful people and wonderful experiences. I would have never scheduled myself a day at the airport but I was truly blessed by the experience. I relaxed and embraced this entire episode of my life. I went with the flow of what was actually happening in my life and did not moan or wish it was something other than what it was.

It is not possible summarize these thirteen hours of amazing miracles in one day, although I have attempted to do so.  The story continues on tomorrow.

Enjoy wherever you are today fully and completely. Value Your Journey!!!

AMAZEMENT

 

August is the month of amazement. Carefully look into, check out and investigate all the wonders of life. We move so quickly some times that we may forget how incredible things are.

This month slow down a bit and truly witness the beauty that is all around you, even in the little things. Stop for a moment and feel the sensation of the blood that flows through your veins. This gift of life does its job without any effort on your part; it just does what it is designed to do.

Pay attention to your breath. Do you breathe fully in and exhale completely out? Or is your breathing rushed and/or shallow? Can you allow yourself to inhale deeply, taking in the wonder of life? Go ahead and breathe in very slowly, enjoy this feeling of allowing yourself to appreciate the gift of breath. Now exhale, let it all out. Relax and take another deep breath. Notice how you breathe. Be grateful for this gift of oxygen.

Have you ever noticed how a wound will heal itself, even when you do not place a bandage on it? That is a gift as well. Your body can and will heal itself because it is designed that way. God took precious care in creating the human, making sure that it was a perfect specimen, fully capable of restoring itself to wholeness when injured.

Then there is the amazing fact that you can change your thoughts at any time you decide. You are not stuck into one way of thinking, unless you are unwilling to exercise that privilege.

It is simply amazing how incredible God has created everything especially the human being, the highest form of life. Pay deliberate attention to the details and the movements and motions of life.  Notice how amazing life truly is and celebrate the Goodness of God!

SLOW DOWN

You are moving too fast. Slow down and enjoy the fine intricacies of life.

When you can fully appreciate the beauty in your children, then you are moving at the correct speed. How often do we miss the entire childhood by wishing they were another age only to find that when that age came we wished they were younger? How about simply enjoying them right now! There is wonder and beauty in children of all ages. We must be observant or we will surely miss some golden nuggets of time.

Do you ever see and watch the trees grow? Oh I know you are thinking that this thought is ridiculous but do it anyway. Just sit and watch the trees. As you learn to calm yourself long enough to even consider doing this, you will experience the benefit of lower heart rate and blood pressure. There is no telling what other treasures are hidden in watching the trees grow. Why don’t you watch for a while and then report back to me what miracle happened as you watched the trees grow.

And how about your own incredible existence? Do you ever marvel at your life? Do you ever think back to the time when you were inside your mother’s womb? Go back even further, how about when you were split in two, a sperm and an egg, and through God’s Grace and Mercy you survived the joining and became the Grand Wonderful Person you are today. You can really appreciate your life when you slow down and remember just how miraculous your life is.

The fascinating Universe is another wonder to experience in a relaxed mood. To appreciate the rays from the sun, to allow the beauty of a full moon to brighten your home or to count the twinkling stars at night. To walk in the rain and allow it to totally absorb you and all your cares, then wash them away. Are you getting it now? There is glorious Beauty in moving around purposefully and deliberately, observing with Gratitude all that God has blessed us with.

Today Remember to SLOW DOWN!!!

SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Today vow to do something different, go beyond the ordinary and reach the extra-ordinary! Watch as the miraculous unfolds before your very eyes.

Release all routine today; travel a new route; think a new thought; meet someone new. Witness your Blessings. Afterall, when you keep doing the same thing day after day you will undoubtedly reap the same results. Just do something different, it does not need to be extreme. Just the act of doing anything differently will aide your creativity to begin to come alive.

Turn the familiar into an uncharted frontier. There is a miracle waiting for you in the unknown. This action is called Faith. So today promise to not react the same way to a situation. Think a new thought. If you would normally blow something off, take some action and feel yourself totally involved in it. Or if you are the one who always show up in a very professional, no nonsense style, have some fun today and loosen up. Smile and entertain others. Share a joke. Become completely active in conversation with a person that you would otherwise avoid.

Find a new and exciting road to travel today as you go to work, to school, to do errands or whatever you do during the day. Travel there on a new route or go home a new way. Always sit down to family dinner, why not eat picnic style tonight? Toss a blanket on the floor if you are unable to go outside and dine. Or light candles at dinner. Celebrate this new day in an extraordinary way. Pretend it’s a holiday and get excited! Dress up for dinner as if you are expecting a very special guest. Then relax in the company of yourself and truly honor who you are.

Find other ways to do this exercise today. Maybe you eat your lunch at a certain time, change it just for today. Maybe the radio is always on, turn it off and enjoy your own thoughts. If the opposite is true then turn up the music and dance!

Put some new energy in your life today! Celebrate Life today! You deserve that and more!!!

But what is so fascinating is the fact that you are now more excited than ever before and welcome the next big wave. The big wave is all you want!

That is exactly where I am today. All I want is the Big Wave to hit me, to soak me, to drench me with pure, unadulterated, unconditional LOVE, PEACE and JOY!

BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

 The creation of anything requires time, skill and expertise. True relationships do not happen by chance, they take time to build.

Building relationships is a wonderful opportunity to discover who you really are. Most relationships that we entertain are a reflection of those qualities we either have in our self or aspire to develop in ourselves.

Always began the building with truth and honesty. Allow the other person to see and share with the real you. I have been told by the participants of Common Ground that they do not allow people to see them in their fullness at first. They wait, wear masks to cover the real person, until that person has proved they are worthy to really know them. The masks serve as a protection and a hiding place. My question to them is what does that say about you? Are you afraid or ashamed of whom you are? Why not allow the person to see the real you? What if you are missing out on a great friendship? What if that person transitioned before you have the opportunity to show them who you really are?

When we have nothing to hide and no longer are ruled by fear of people getting too close or not liking the real you, then we can proudly show up in our authentic self at all times. Regardless to the situation we are pleased of who we are and have become and fully desire for others to ‘see’ us in full expression.

Do you always show up in true identity? Do you wear masks depending on the circumstances? Do you first appear one way, then as the relationship builds and you feel more comfortable you become another person? Become the person who desire to be so that you can always demonstrate the authentic you! Be proud of who you are at all times. Express yourself fully.

Build the relationship with you first. Know you are a child of God; worthy, deserving, complete, healthy, and whole. Honor yourself at all times. Be kind to you, be loving to you and be forgiving of yourself. Love you and allow others to love you in return.

I WILL TRUST

I will trust the process of life. I will trust that I am divinely led in all my thoughts and actions. I trust I will know exactly what to do when the time comes.

I stay in constant communication with God; therefore I trust and believe in the process of life. I pray and I meditate as often as possible. I become still and hear the answers given to me by God. I listen for my answers. There are times when God will use another person to give me an answer. I trust I will know the difference of a person being Divinely ordered on my path of answers. I will trust myself to feel the right answer coming forth through whatever means The Infinite Intelligence uses.

I will trust that others are being the best they know how to be. I can and will serve as an example to others when appropriate. It is not my obligation in life to insist that another think or behave the way I feel is right. What is right for me just may not be the right thing for someone else. I will trust another to live their life as they see fit.

I will trust that the same Power that created the birds of the air to not have to worry about their food or dwelling place to be the same Infinite Power that desires the same thing for me. So I choose not to worry but be obedient to what I am led to accomplish without thought of lack or limitation.

I will trust that just as this day has come with the passing of twenty four hours that I am being taken care of by The Most High Source. I will trust that all is always in perfect order. So when times come and I get anxious, I choose to relax in my trusting The Infinite Intelligence to order my steps.

I declare to the Universe that I will trust God and the inexhaustible supply that is available to me at all times!

HEAD or HEART?

Do you know or feel the Indwelling Presence of God? Both are good and there is no right or wrong answer. There is a difference however.

To know you are here by the sheer Grace and Mercy of The Creator is wonderful. To understand that life exists purely by The Source breathing into all living things is powerful. To be able to explain just how marvelous the workings of God is in your life is exciting. To voice affirmations is terrific.

Yet when you allow yourself to really ‘feel’ this incredible energy that sustains you, there are no words to describe it. You simply are ‘in’ Grace and Mercy. You feel it all the way down to your toes. You feel it like a first skin. You experience the flow through every atom and cell of your body. You feel it rushing through your heart pumping miraculously to every organ, giving it more life energy. To ‘feel God’ is absolutely amazing!

I ‘feel’ the Omnipotent Presence of The Most High Source in my body, heart and blood! Just sit and ‘feel’ God in YOU! It is glorious and wonderful! It is powerful and sustaining. God is life itself.

Can you really ‘feel’ The Presence? Close your eyes for a moment. Be still. ‘Feel’ your heart beat. WOW! ‘Feel’ the blood circulating through your veins. WOW! ‘Feel’ your breath. WOW! Just experience it and appreciate it. Glow in the Love of God gifting you with Life. Just ‘BE’ in it!!!

God is the beginning, the middle and the end. Nothing comes or survives without the support of God. I can ‘feel’ the Life Source in me. I ‘feel’ it and I love IT! I appreciate and treasure it.

Thanks God, Allah, Creator, Most High, Source.

I do ‘feel’ The Life Sustaining Presence!
