We Are Just Passing Through

How does the above quote resonate with you? How does it move you? As a shaman it rings a clear bell of truth. It is like warm honey to my soul. It feeds my belief of how I walk my path in this lifetime, what I embrace, what I share, what I release and what I love.

When we hold this concept in our hearts we place our focus on walking with integrity and grace. We want to be sure to touch the lives of those around us in a positive way. We want to be present in each moment, to embrace the beauty of life and the lessons it gives us.

When you hold this philosophy or thought in your mind, body and soul…you cannot help but walk the earth differently. Your approach towards every situation has a honoring presence because you know that you are about to be gifted, taught, to serve as witness and able to offer honor or support, you are going to grow more fully into who you are becoming or you are about to experience love in the most beautiful possible way. What a delightful way to live. What a promise each moment holds.

Instead of just letting life happen around me. I am plugged in. I am an eager participant in whatever wayfile000722056167 my soul requires of me. Whether I am in service or if I am in a place of pause I still can hold a state of cherishing wonder to what I have before me. It is in this trust that I receive what I am in need of, even when I am not fully aware of what that may be. The mysteries seem to take care of that. I see everyday splendor in the ordinary. I find love in each exchange. My life is blessed with communities who celebrate this way of life as well. I am in good company.

Blessings ~ Lisa
