Where I Stand
This is where I stand today.
This is where every traveled path, detour, U turn, and short cut has led me. This day right here. From the warmth of my breath emerges this expansive heaven within my soul.
Every heartache that pierced, every tear shed, every smile grinned and every belly laugh has led me to this day right here. I embody all the perceived Good and Bad of my past and wholeheartedly emit gratitude for each and every experience.
Where would I be if not for all the pain and torment of the thorns of this human experience?
Where would I be if not for all the signs and synchronicities I choose to see, for all the magic and mystery that my soul has grasped?
I don’t know where I would be, but I do know I would not be here, where I stand today.
I realize that I have always had the choice.
Choice to try or give up.
Choice to stay comfortable or make room within to expand.
Choice to wallow in my heartache and pain, or to accept it and learn the lessons.
If I chose to stay where I felt comfortable, I wouldn’t be where I stand today.
I’ve discovered that if I live in fear, then I am not living in faith. You can not live in both places. It’s like living in Alaska and Arizona at the same time. It can not be done.
Fear loves to wear disguises of “I’m too busy” and “I don’t know how”
Faith is the Mother embracing her baby singing a soft lullaby. Faith is the Father providing the shelter.
Do you hear that voice that calls to you in the still of the early morning?
This voice that beckons you deep within your center being that can bring happiness to you and others, is there for you. The voice you can only hear within your heart, is here for you.
I have listened… and this is where I stand.
