From a friend

I have always found early spring signs, the omens of continuing life, to be thrilling, core awakening, and peaceful.
My optimism in early spring is always nourished.

This year too, in the midst of this centuries first new challenge, there are signs of emerging brightness. We just have to look around to see the sprouting of hopeful little buds that will grow into sustaining life. Hope is nourished.

And here are some of the sprouts that are emerging as we watch the world shake from winter’s slumber and put forth a concerted effort to heal and sustain:

The world has been shocked and momentarily stunned. Yet, the signs of a gathering together and working across boundaries for the common good, are growing.

There are clouds that are still heading this way but there are also signs of an international response.

Cherish the music

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built. ~ James Allen

Our biggest fear

Don Miguel Ruiz wrote, “Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive — the risk to be alive and express what we really are.”

Being fearful of the future takes an enormous amount of energy and drains the creativity and motivation from life. So, just for today, do your best to be less fearful. And, as you set your sights on the days ahead, plan to do one small thing every day to express your own uniqueness.

We are all assets

I would like to suggest that we all are assets. You, me, the guy down the street, the gal at the check out counter and the struggling soul wandering aimlessly in the night. While it may be hard at times to “see” everyone as an asset because they “look” like liabilities, I believe we were all born as assets.

If you can follow me in this thinking, I’d like to suggest an asset is love. Have you ever met a new born baby that wasn’t love? We were created in love, the product of love and therefore we are love. When we sit in our deepest place, the place where breath is created, we meet it. It can be as near or far as we allow, choose or are programmed to believe, but, there is only one truth, love.

We need to hear the truth about ourself as frequently as possible, because our mind is so preoccupied with false images. We have been operating under the ego’s thought system for a very long time, and we’ve built up quite a backlog of false ideas and images. Time now to clean house!
