Finding ways to connect with our inner truth and soul is sometimes challenging especially if our time and focus is spent on the busy-ness of life, the requirements that eat up the day’s moments and absorb our energy. Today I want to share with you a quote that I often read to help me come back to that important place of focus for me. It keeps me in alignment with the path I am on and the call of spirit that resonates with my being. "The earth recognizes people in whom God flowers. There is a sensuousness, a centeredness, a grace to their movement. There is a relaxed gentility of power flowing quietly within and beneath their action. There is a humble assuredness about them, a reverence, a sense of humor and a sense of the sacred entwined. They are the magical people, for whom the earth has longed. " -Ken Carey
When I read these words and take them in I feel them flow through me like warm honey. Their sweetness soothes me. Their warmth calms me and then I find my truth again and I feel my soul’s embrace. I can be this being described above. I can especially when I look for the beauty in life and in others. I can especially when I stop and listen to what my heart is telling me. I can especially when I remove myself from the stories that try to wrap themselves around my ankles and trip me up. I focus on my truth and feel my soul’s embrace.
Too often we lose sight of this inner grace, this gentle unfolding of power, this humble sense of confidence, and this holding of honor and cherishing of the sacredness of life. We lose sight of who we truly are and become someone of the making of the roles assigned to us in life, the labels attached to our beings, and the expectations of others. We truly are not being authentic or clothing our self in the Divine essence offered us each and every day. Instead we pull together an assortment of costumes to wear; some too tight, some torn and frayed, and some discarded by others and tossed our way.
To learn how to not get caught up in the acts of inauthenticity and expectation and learn how to slowly step along the path of our own resonation, we find our happiness and we feel a completion within. Moments spent with others resonate with our soul, messages shared from Spirit fuel us on, and inspiration for our next step comes easily and without stress. This can be how our days are spent. There can be this much beauty within and around us and we can be of it always.
