You will blossom.

 

 

A flower starts deep under the dirt and has to fight against gravity in the darkness before finally breaking free and opening its bloom to the sun. You may feel like you're in darkness and everything around you is muddy, but keep pushing toward the Light and when the time is right, you will burst into blossom.


~ I can't take credit for writing these, but I think they are nice and peaceful to reflect upon. I hope you enjoy them.

Inevitable is best accepted with serenity.

 

There are times when you absolutely see no solution. When you've thought and thought and prayed and prayed; when you've sat still in meditation listening for an answer and still no answer comes. There are times when it's okay to just surrender.

Nothing is exciting if you know what the outcome is going to be.

 

 

You keep wanting to know how things will play out, keep asking to see the future. God doesn't give anyone the power to know the future, because life becomes maddeningly boring when you know everything upfront. So, instead of struggling, enjoy the uncertainty - to be alive means to not know.

You can be an echo of your past, or the glory of your future.

 

 

Past is connected to future through the present. At this very moment, at every moment, you are choosing to carry on the past with all its troubles on your shoulders, OR to let it go and see bright future pull your forward. Choose wisely.

Every little thing is a miracle.

 

 

Miracles do not come with bright lights and fancy stages. Those belong in a magic show. If you want a miracle, you can see it everywhere - in dew drops, in waves, and of course in yourself.

God is crazy about you.

 

 

God sends you fresh flowers every spring, a breathtaking sunrise every morning. If God had a wallet, your picture would be in it. If God has a refrigerator, your childhood scribbles would be on it.

You will find the wisest teacher within yourself.

 

 

Do not rely overly on others for your answers. Seek the wisdom within the kingdom of your heart.

Everyone mistakes the limits of their vision for the limits of the world.

 

 

Have compassion for others when they cannot see what is obvious to you. Have compassion for yourself when you realize that you can see only a small part of God's vision for the world.

Today you should take a vacation from worries.

 

 

Take this moment to conjure up a fond memory. A time in your life when you were content and happy. Dwell on that moment for a while, let those feelings of contentment permeate your soul. Today is a good day to be content, so take a vacation from your worries.

It's ok to be there for yourself.

 

Amidst all the expectations, demands, requests, take some time to ground yourself in God. Take some time for yourself.

There will be times when you feel tossed around by the tempests of your emotions.

 

 

When this happens, look for that still sacred space within you. Take some time to rest in that space. After a time, when you are ready, come out to face the world again.

You are not alone.

 

 

Our own fears and insecurities can make us feel that we are beyond help, beyond hope. Know that there is no place that far and that God is always with you.

Sleep and rest are all part of the divine order.

 

Don't make your waking life and responsibilities so important that you neglect the very real benefits of sleep, rest, and dreaming. The night is your time of restoration. It is essential. God made both day and night for a reason.

It's good to express your feelings.

 

 

Don't hold your feelings in, suppressed they will just poison your well being. Have the courage to express them, in intelligent ways of course.

Every day you are choosing either to be grateful or to be disappointed.

 

 

You can worry to no end about what you don't have. Or you can marvel at God's breathtaking gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds. Could you create any of these? These miracles of life are always around you, ready to be celebrated, ready to be welcomed into your life.

Until you learn how to say 'no', you will never be able to fully say 'yes'.

 

 

Unless you know how to set boundaries to form your safe space, you will always be concerned that saying 'yes' might put you in danger. So you will always pull back a little from saying 'yes' with your whole heart. Paradoxically, knowing how to say 'no' to form boundaries gives much more power to your 'yes'.

When people tell you nice things, stop shrugging them off as if they are nothing.

 

 

The sincere compliments you receive are your jewels- collect them in your heart, they highlight the beauty of your being and empower you during challenging times. Never say 'oh, it's nothing' or shrug your shoulders when you hear a sincere compliment. Pause, breathe it in, and really feel its meaning.

The world needs your prayers.

 

 

This world is very big and there are many, many challenges the world is grappling with. But your prayers are more powerful and strong than you realize. Bless and support the world with your prayers.

When you notice the beauty and the goodness in the world, then the evils and catastrophes, the greed and the wars will not be as overwhelming.

 

 

Hold fast to your faith. Believe in goodness. Believe in God.

You don't have to be serious to be spiritual.

 

 

Laughter is good! Levity is good! When you allow yourself to be joyful, that joy radiates to all those around you. God honors you and your laughter.
