Namaste splashing, fearless footprints of fortitude, faith, forgiveness & freedom!
I greet you in the name of passionate persistence, faith filled fortitude & fearless freedom! What pathways are you pursuing this mindful moment?! I just took a wonder-full walk in the sprinkling, tinkling RAIN … which for draught stricken CA on a hot July 2nd, seems like a straight up miracle! At the least it affirms for me that truly, all things are possible. A celebratory reminder, to be sure. And a welcome one in the wake of all that is ~ and isn’t ~ in my little corner of the world. In a nutshell, I am re-learning, re-aligning with the truth of accepting all of it ~ all of me ~ as is … not as *it* or *I* should be. Peace in the moment comes with trusting acceptance. And the fearless fortitude to carry on! Freedom!
Freedom comes in many steps … acceptance of what is and moving into more of what it is our hearts call us to ~ and gratefully embracing every step along the way with happy thoughts and acknowledgement of all the blessings that fill our paths!
On the brink of America’s birthday celebration, 4th of July, we celebrate freedom and the fortitude of our forefathers. We are all a mixture of our ancestors and all that humanity has created before us ~ the good & the ugly ~ mixed with all the creations we are breathing into every step this day forward. Freedom does indeed lie in the dreaming and the choosing yet true freedom is in the acceptance of all of it. And can we even celebrate all that is when it doesn’t look like all we want/think it should be?! As we sing in I Am Free on the Trust What You Hear CD, “If things aren’t how they should be, I can still choose to be happy!”
Our Free Shelf is re-stocked for the week … celebrating rain (can’t help it!), water conservation (living it!) and the affirmation of each day dawning … sing & read rain, save water in small ways in the house and experience a Brigantine Beach sunrise (taped there last year around this time!
